Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My machine has been just shutting down and sending error reports in. The last error was Consider BIOS upgrade. During the crash analysis, we noticed the basic input/outupt (BIOS) system version on this computer does not match the specificatons for the cpu unit. How can I upgrade or find the Processor and needed to fix this probablem. They feel the RAM is the most likely cause of the problem. I bought and installed norton 360 and have been having problems with crash shut downs ever since. I have taken the machine to Office Depot to have them go through and they find no virues or problems. This is a emachine C288l CVF4610008551 Purchase date. 07/24/04 This is our 3 emachine. It has worked well until the Norton 360. I hope yopu will be able to answer this question of error shut downs and check this machine.

    I have had the machine completely cleaned out with Norton removed and reinstalled. It has not helped.



    I really would like to know what my exact processor is so I can download a BIOS upgrade.

Satellite PSAGCA-06M01N keeps restarting when i try to upgrade windows


Computer randomly restarts is not something unique happened to you. Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the system and sometime it sends different errors, upon restarting nothing happens.

-- First of all disable the auto-restart option from your control panel settings
-- Remove any recently installed maliciously software/add-on or any other application or toolbar.
-- Try to cool down your PC as the overheating due to overuse of computer may result in system freezing and sudden restarting.
-- Update your BIOS.
-- Update the drivers
-- Make it sure the error is not caused by the deficient power supply. You may try to change the power supply.
-- Conduct the registry clean up scan for quick fix of the problem.
-- Remove flashy games and/or untrusted antiviruses/antispywares. Conduct the security scan through the most powerful scanners only.
I would recommend to use a system utility tool like PCFresher to fix windows errors and registry errors. Then try updating hope problem is fixed.

I am not able to open microsoft excel application. THE FIRST BOX THAT POPS UP: The application Microsoft Excel quit unexpectedly. Mac OS X and other applications are not affected. Click Relaunch to...


I would uninstall it and reinstall again. If that doesn't fix it, uninstall it and use Open Office instead. Far better, free open access and easier to use plus fully compatible with any microsoft stuff.

My computer will not boot up keeps closing down


check how often it shuts down and if it shuts down when you start a particular application then start your computer and go to BIOS and leave it on there ( for example if your comp shuts down every 3 mins in normal mode then leave the comp on for 15 mins in bios to determine if it is a hardware or software issue then check in sfae mode the event log or error reporting if any hardware is causing the issue, update the drivers or try with new user or reinstall OS as last option.

Dell Vostro 1220 shutdown/restart problem


Frankly speaking, Vostro has many intermittent issue like slow start-up, application error during shutdown or restart. Sometimes it even crashed with our co antivirus, acrobat writer etc..

We have reported many cases to DELL but unfortuntely no fix solution. We have at least 5 machines out of 20 reported similar issue.

Tell you, the best is to upgrade to Latitude if you budget permit. No point wasting time on this.

Unofficially, dell engineer told our IT engineer that vostro has many problem and not really suitable for office use... that is why the price so cheap...

From my true heart. good luck!

Microsoft is unable to determine the exact cause of this error. However, this problem was most likely caused by an error in your computer?s random access memory (RAM). RAM is the main internal storage area...


What are you doing when this happens? It sounds like you will have to get a BIOS upgrade weather you like it or not. Visit the motherboard manufacturer's website and obtain the BIOS update from there.

Shut down unexpectedly and when I use skipe, in the error report is telling me may be I need bios upgrade but I don't know how to do it


BIOS is not for the novice and shouldn't be tampered with, mess it up and there goes the computer.

I think you may be overheating and that is why it is shutting down on you. Solution: Clean it out with a can of air. Sold at Wal-Mart.

Another possibility is that you have a virus. Do a scan with Malwarebytes and SUPERantispyware and remove any infections.

Dll driving me nuts


Hello EricS777

The part where it looks like your xp stuff and vista stuff switch drives is normal. Only the Operating System associates the hard drives by letters this does not mean your hard drive files are switching. This happens because D: drive is Root of Vista OS and Root of any OS in windows gets the C: drive lettering.

dwwin.exe, drwtsn.exe dll is the "Microsoft Application Error Reporting" tool.

I think the message means that something is crashing during system shutdown. When the crash occurs the OS launches dwwin.exe to report the error, however the windows operating system is shutting down and so the application can't launch make the system lockup or hang.

Your problem isn't with dwwin.exe, you need to find out what is actually crashing at shutdown.

If you can`t find out what it is, try going to Administrative Tools/Services and disable the “Error Reporting Service”. You don`t want that running anyway.

Also right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Error Reporting
Put a check at both
Disable Error Reporting
But notify me when critical errors occur

Then, if that was the cause and the message stops, we`ll have to try to identify the cause.
