Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Computer dead. So i was on my computer, and i restarted it. (because it was having tons of lag spikes and i had a non responsive program that wouldn't close) Right when it shut down, it froze at the very beginning of the restart. I turned it off and on, and it just stayed at the giant E with the F10 and F2 options, which wouldn't work. Can i fix this without reinstalling my whole system?

Take the computer off and check its connections. Look for ribbon cables disconnected on the drives. Check the memory cards and see if they are seated properly.

Hi,
Click Start-> Run, type msconfig and click Ok. The System Configuration Utility will start. Now click on Startup tab. You will see a list of programs which starts automatically when Windows starts.
In that list, uncheck the program items, which you generally don't use. It will make your computer a little faster.
The above procedure can also be modified a little, that is uncheck all items under Startup tab, restart your computer.
Now check one item at a time, restart computer and test the speed of your computer. This way, you will find the programs, which are making the computer show. Remember to use a pen and paper to take a note about which items you are selecting or unselecting.

Please try one more thing:

Open Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> System. Click on Advanced tab. Under Performance, click on Settings, click on Adjust for best performance, click Apply and Ok.

Then do this Click->Start->Programes->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Clean Up and select the C:Drive and clean it


Thanks

if you keep reset on to your CPU this will affect to your Hard Drive. When your online games WOW very lag then do not let that online game on play to your Computer. You know or maybe your Computer are not enough to run this game. Check all the plug in play device which are capable to run this game. Your VGA Compatibility e.i AGP or PCI-E, Memory speed e.i DD1, DD2 & DDR3 and mostly Games Accelerator Programs.
Hope this tip might help you.
Good luck!

I cannot shut down or restart my PC using the start menu prompts. The only way to shut her down is a hard shut down (manually turn her off).


There is a program that is failing to shut down in general, which is delaying the computers ability to shut down.
The next time you shut down, make sure you have no programs open. Then, while attempting to shut down, wait until Windows pops up window asking you to close a non-responsive program. When it does, take note of the program that it mentions, then close it and see if Windows shuts down. Note: sometimes this takes a really long time.
Try re-installing the non-responsive program and see if your computer can shut down normally again.

I repeatedly get Program not responding messages


Not much to go on here. Are you asking for condolences, or what to do about it? This message is caused generally by your machine having run out of resources. That could be swap file space, due to having run out of room on your hard drive, or swap file size set too small. Graphics card insufficient for what you are trying to do, especially if it is an on-board graphics card. Mostly due to not enough RAM installed. RAM chips are cheaper than they have ever been. See how much is in your machine, and then max it out by adding RAM up to the capacity of your motherboard. Temporary fix is try running less applications at one time, defrag your hard drive, add a program such as Advanced Windows Care (FREE on the net) and use it to maintain your registry, I would go for the RAM upgrade.

Emachine t5048 slow from login to desktop access/clock lag spikes


The chatter in the hard drive could mean that it has a problem and it may be on it's way out.
The Fan being out is definitely a serious problem and the unit should not be used till the fan is replaced.
Once you correct the fan situation, you need to update and run your Anti-virus program. Download CCleaner, WinPatrol . Install and run them also.

I had a client's PC that was running slow and it was because of Windows Live One Care. I removed it and cleaned it up and got it back to normal.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Computer keeps freezing up and often gives me a message that says microsoft not responding


Did you install software recently? Did you add on any hardware? You might need to unistall whatever you installed and/or remove whatever hardware you added.

How much memory you have? How many start up programs you have running in the background. There could be numerous things going on that would give you freezing and non response.
