There's an excellent tool I use myself called KillDisk that is free, just download it and copy it to a bootable floppy disk, then use it to entirely wipe your whole hard drive, it just takes a few hours depending on your computer speed and drive size. It can be configured to wipe to Department of Defense security standards (takes longer) or just random 0s and 1s. I highly recommend this software, it's very easy to use and best - free!

Kudos to you for donating your PC, and for being smart enough to wipe the hard drive!

Please be sure to back up important emails and any data first!! :)

The best way to clean computer


Leave it plugged in to eliminate static discharge, take the covers off and use a small brush and a vacuum to clean out all the dust that is on the heat sinks on the CPU and the power supply. Clean the fans and the motherboard.

Forgot administrator password for my emachines computer EL1352G-41w


You can reset administrator password with Windows built-in administrator account:

1. Log on with the guest account on windows, then right click computer, and choose Management.
2. Expand Local Users and Groups and Users in the console.
3. Right-click Administrator account and select Properties.
4. On the General tab, clear the Account is Disabled check box.
5. Close the console.
Now the super administrator account is successfully enabled. Next, you can easily reset the forgotten admin password from "Start->Control Panel".

If the above method can not help you, you can use Smartkey Password Recovery Bundle to help you to reset the password, and see the detail direction from http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/passwordrecovery.html.

I forgot my emachines pc password, How do i get into that account? i have one other account but it is a standard user and i cant accsess anything to change the other accounts password! PLEASE HELP!


On another PC, Google-search for "Windows offline password editor".
Download this software. Burn it to a CD-recordable disk.
Insert the disk into your computer, and boot your computer from the disk.
Set the password for the 'Administrator' account to a "blank" value.
Remove the CD-R.
Reboot.
Login as 'Administrator', and leave the password field "blank".
Once logged-in, set a new password.

Computer wants a boot disk. It was donated to our church


It sounds like the person who donated the PC wiped the HD clean, so that none of their previous data can be taken from the old HD.

And when they re-installed an operating system, they did not complete the installation. This means you must contact that person, find out which OS they installed on the HD, and get the boot diskette from that person.

The alternative is to have them do a full install of an OS, or you do it yourself. But you must use an OS for which you have a license.

Otherwise, you will have error messages pop up every step of the way, and you won't be able to use the PC without error messages every step of the way.

Emachines t5230 & no power Working fine one day and then no power the next?


Your eMachines features the cheapest power supply in the industry. I have personally replaced 6 of these. You can replace it with a factory unit for $20 or go to your local compter shop, and get a $40 unit that will last until you need a new computer.

( It says... 480Ws but I dont believe it )

$20:

Hi dallasblue08,

Here's a diagram of what your looking for:

The following eMachine models share the same motherboard (and thus the same front panel layout):
