Emachine T5026 installing a new hard drive.

We are trying to install a new hard drive in our Emachine. I do not have a manual, it was bought in a garage sale. Please advise where we place the hard drive and what needs to be connected to the hard drive itself ? Thank you for any help with our problem.

I have an emachine T5026. Emachine tech swears this machine only supports pc2700 ram but the stickers on the factory installed ram says pc3200 256mb x 2 so i bought 2 memory masters pc3200 1gb x 2 sticks....


PC3200 is backwards compatible with PC2700. Meaning you can install PC3200 into your motherboard but it won't run any faster than would PC2700, however it will not cause any harm and should work fine.

Emachine's would say you need PC2700 most likely because they're trying to sell you some.

One of your new memory modules or the memory slots on your computer may be defective. I recommend installing a single stick of memory and booting your system. If it is successful then shut it down, disconnect the power and install another stick. Boot again and keep doing so and by process of elimination identify the bad memory stick or the bad memory slot.

This is the "likely" cause and isn't too uncommon.

Good luck.

Emachine t5026 on and right off


Hi maybe you could try these steps I'm always doing when I experience the same problem as yours. This is only according to my experience fixing desktop computers.

1. Try to disconnect all the connection at the back of your computer tower then press the power button of your computer for 15 seconds to drain the remaining power.

2. Reconnect only the power button and the monitor cable then turn it back on. (If the same thing happened go to step 4 if not go to step 3)

3. ( From step 2 ) If it turned back on, most probably the problem is one of the devices that you just disconnected is causing the problem. Try to reconnect then one-by-one and each time you connect them turn on your computer, let's check if it's gonna turn on or not, just proceed until you finish connecting all of the device or until you pin point the root cause of the issue.

4. (From step 2 ) If it didn't turn on, Open up your computer tower and reseat the video card, then turn on the computer

5. If still the same problem, remove your hard drive and turn on your computer, if it turned on, meaning that the hard drive might be the problem, if not, just put it back in

6. If still the same problem, remove the memories from your computer, if you have more than one memory installed remove them all, test the first memory to the 1st slot and to other slots one-by-one, see if it turned on. Test the second memory and so on, to the 1st slot and so on. Do it only with one memory testing each memory.

7. Reseat the power cord coming from the power supply, the 21 pin and also the small one that is plugged into your motherboard,

8. Reseat the CPU

9. If all of those things failed, most probably that the power supply is causing the problem. it's also possible that the motherboard is affected, I hope not.

I bought this emachine in july and it had to be restored because it lost my personal settings it said then after the restore it lost my desktop icons and taskbar and now it only comes on the widows xp...


If this was a new machine & still under warranty I would take it back to get it repaired. I suspect that it hasgot a hard drive that could be on the way out. If this is a second hand machine, get a new drive & re-install Windows or install Linux instead, it would work even better.

Emachine t5026 boots only with os disk in drive


Emachines don't use the cable select properties very well. Change your drive to Master, reformat and reinstall the operatiing system.

After installing hard drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse not working


Have you tried to enter BIOS? Are you able to enter BIOS?? There may be an option you have to hit to enable SATA, and to select the boot device order, which may be messing things up.
Also, remember that STATIC ELECTRICITY is your enemy! Ground yourself when working inside the case.

REBOOT LOOP -EMACHINE T5026


You have provided some good information, but more detail is needed.

Is the system still under warranty? How long ago did this start? Have you added any new hardware or software?

Your reboot issue might not be hard drive or MBR related. Disconnect everything not needed for booting. Even disconnect keyboard and mouse to see if it will get to the Windows Desktop.

If that works, start adding until you get the reboot problem again.

If none of that helps and you need to recover data from the computer, buy or borrow a hard drive you can boot to for the computer and when you are able to boot to Windows, you can back up your important data, then wipe the drive and reload Windows or leave it blank as extra storage capacity depending upon your desire or circumstances.

Let me know if you have questions.

My pc was doing this but now it's doing something different but simular


Try telling it to boot the CD instead of the disk for now, since you need to install from that...or perhaps a newer OS.

Emachine boots to bios with a new hard drive installed


Go inside to your BIOS menu then set the BOOT sequence to CD as the first boot so when your PC with the operating system installation disk inside it will load the installation wizard.
Good luck hope that helps........
