Question about eMachines EL135203 PC Desktop

2 Answers

My brand new (out of the box today) eMachines el1352-03 doesn't turn on. The socket it's plugged into is ok. My previous computer was in the same spot. The speakers plugged into the USB in the back are powered up and the Ethernet cable in the back of the computer has a blinking LED that is on. But when I push the power cord nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Most desktop computers have a power switch on the back of the computer -- verify that this switch is in the on position. There is also a switch on the back of the power supply that tells the computer whether you are using 115-volt power or 230-volt power -- make sure it is set to 115 before turning the computer on.

Did either of these solutions help?

Your new moniter may not be compatible with your computer. I have an Emachines that won't take a flat screen. I have to use a big bulky moniter because it says not connected even thought the hookup fits the back of the tower. That might be your problem. Did your old moniter work correctly?

I have a emachine w3503 and my sound is dead


Hello sortugado, If your sound is dead, This could mean that you've plugged it into the wrong socket. This could be wrong. But try this.
Start - Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager - Right Click on the Sound/Audio (it should have a yellow sign next to it) Then go Find Manually and go down the List, Press Sound & Hardware, What ever brand your computer is, there should be sound that is the brand name as the same computer brand you have. Once that's found, Click it. It should then install your hardware sound. If this problem still doesn't work, You can simply go on ebay and buy a $5 Sound card. These do work, I am using one now, and let me tell you, it's absolutely great! So cheap great quality, and fast shipment. I hope you get your sound to work :)

Put in a branbd new battery. Power adapter is OK.


Your motherboard does not need replacing provided the problem is the power socket on the motherboard.
If the power adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

How to install memory for T3642 eMachine


eMachines T3642 Computer takes the PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs. Supports Dual Channel DDR2. Memory Type, and comes installed with 1.0 GB = 512 MB (removable) + 512 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your eMachines eMachines T3642 Computer to up to a maximum of 2.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 1.0 GB = 512 MB (removable) + 512 MB (removable) standard Memory installed. For best Computer performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your Computer.


INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
1. Place the computer power switch in the "off " position and disconnect the AC power cord.
2. Remove the computer top cover following the instructions in the model-specific owner manual.
3. Before touching any electronic components, make sure you first touch an unpainted, grounded metal object to discharge any static electricity stored on your clothing or body.
4. Locate the memory expansion sockets on the computer motherboard. If all the sockets are full, remove smaller capacity modules to allow room for higher capacity modules.
5. The ejector tabs shown in the illustration are used to remove a module. By pushing outward on the ejector tabs, the module will pop-up from the socket and it can then be removed.
6. Handle your new module carefully; do not flex or bend the module. Always grasp the module by its edges.
7. For most installations, DDR modules can be installed in any available expansion slot. Other installations may require the memory to be installed in a particular sequence based on the modules capacity. Check your owner manual to determine the correct installation sequence for your configuration.
  • Insert the module into an available expansion socket. Note how the module is keyed to the socket. This ensures the module can be plugged into the socket one way only. Firmly press the module into position, making certain the module is completely seated in the socket. The ejector tabs at each end of the socket will automatically snap into the locked position. Repeat this procedure for any additional modules you are installing. install_ddr.gif 8. Once the module or modules have been installed, the computer top cover can be reinstalled.
    9. Plug in the AC power cord and reinstall any cables disconnected during the installation process.
    10. Turn on the computer and follow the instructions in your computer owner manual that describe the steps necessary to allow your computer to recognize the newly installed memory.
