Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Emachine beeps Hey, we just got a new emachine and we have the same problem! We got it mid/end of April but were in the process of moving so it stayed in the box till about a week ago. I hooked it up and when you press the on button it beeps 5 times then you hear the fan kick on like its thinking about starting up but then it just stops and beeps until you turn it off. The monitor says no signal and then goes blank. Any advise?

That would be a problem for e-machine. The beeps are codes.
I will try to help, but it is hard to diagnose without looking at it.
You can try several things. Open it up and make sure that everything is seated inside. Make sure the memory is pushed in all the way. Memory will beep like that when it is bad or not in.
Make sure everything is plugged up and the keyboard is not getting a key stuck.
Better yet...... If you just bought it...Pack it up and take it back to the store. You should not have to work on a new computer. The bad thing is that some stores only have a 30 day return policy. You mentioned that you have the same problem. Is this your second computer with this problem?

If you want more help you will have to give us the model number. That is a BIOS code and without knowing what BIOS is in it, it is hard to know the answer.
Don't give me a bad rating for trying to help, because this is hard to diagnose. You might want to call E-machine, because that should be under warranty and if you break something the warranty is gone. Hang on...E-machine was bought out by Gateway wasn't it? The last time I ordered a disk for an E-machine, the disk came from Gateway. In my research I found the following information.

E-MACHINE has a support site
Click her for support.

Click on the link below to read about Gateway buying E-machine in 2004.
Gateway paid $30 million in cash and 50 million shares of Gateway stock to buy eMachines.

Most probably is a RAM memory issue, those beeps are issued when a RAM module can not be found, may be the machine sufferend a crash an the ram jumped out of it's slot (less probable) or just broke (Most probably) certainly a tecnician can save your data to another PC or even, fix the broken PC by replacing the broken RAM module with a new one

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot


There could be a number of causes. Do you hear any beeps when the computer starts up? Try seating all the chips in the motherboard. That means, apply pressure to each individual chip on the motherboard with your finger or thumb. The goal is to make sure each chip is securely attached to the board. Sometimes, heat or new h/w installs partially "pop" some of the chips out of the motherboard - causing the circuitry to be disconnected...
