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.

Spike lag


Ram Upgrade!! That is were to start. Also make sure you have some hard drive space and open up paging. Paging uses some of your empty hard drive space as Ram. I don't know what OS you have you can go to your system settings in the control panel. go to advanced tab and in the virtual memory you can adjust you allotted paging space. You might want to also consider lo lowering graphic details in the games you are playing.

High DPC Latency


High DPC Latency WHAT OS???????????????????
what Zd8000 is this, full model name on the service tag.
pC come in submodels, mine has 6 processor choices, ram size and video GPU chips,. offered on one submodel.
we cant guess what PC you have, nor its upgrades
nor what OS you are running. NOW, nor what it came with new.

id bet it's infected , run ESET, off line scanner yet, its FREE
If XP it for sure is INFECTED, as ALL are now. XP is dead now.
no support for 3 long years, and is a virus magnet.
and very very powerful.
and run full Malwarebytes, next.
if it ran before, and not now, it is infected.
or overheating.
or got tons of startup progs, loaded ,
what is the service tag data.
are you running the original HP software?
that means not upgraded to w10.
nor using MS disks to install OS , only HP works right or f11 key
reinstalls.
lag. (tests that help prove what it might be)
  1. lags on playing C: test.wav file>
  2. lags playing C: test.mp3/?
  3. lags if you click test windows sounds, in CP + sound
  4. LAGS OFF DVD MOVIE?
  5. LAGS ONLY ON OLINE
  6. LAGS ON ms solitaire?
  7. lags on DVD loaded local games?
  8. lags only on steam games....
  9. lags only on live web games
  10. my guess is it lags from even just sounds. (even music online or off line, not just Video lag, as all on line videos can do.
  11. even my netflix lags on my TV with 200mbs/ fiber. (and has nothing to do with my systems, its the internet or netflix caused.

The DPC spikes, my guess are software overload.
too many things running or
how many cores is your processor have?
i looked up on pc like yours,
it had and old Pentium 4.
ATI Mobility Radeon X600 with 256MB dedicated
are you on wifi or fast broad band, with ethernet direct connect./.
but this pc has no gigalan jack, oops, that be bad.
running XP are you>?

first try this on this old dog pc

in the start box. type, msconfig.
then see startup tab
then shut them all off for a test.
see if runs ok now.
why not show one example in detail that fails
show slow video link online. a youtube.
or better , name a game that runs slow or lags
nAME JUST ONE Thing,
tell where it resides.
1: HDD , folder. local.
2: CD/ or DVD drive.
3: online, games.

we cant guess what you do exactly so please say so.

what Id do with this pC
is give it to GOODWILL (tm) then walk over to the newer Laptops
and get one with w7 or newer
and WIN !

Problem with pc hp compaq nx9010...programs work but runs down and shows non responsive program..in what may be problem??


If your computer shows a non responsive program whenever you run one, you might be having a lot of file saved on your computer or maybe the memory of your computer is almost full. What you can do is to run a disk defragmenter as it will help optimizing the performance of your computer and delete some unwanted files or folders and programs as well.
To run disk defragmenter:
- click start > all programs > accessories > system tools > disk defragmenter

To remove programs:
- click start > control panel > add remove programs / programs features > select and uninstall a program

Cheers.

Hi, my dwa 131 wireless usb adapter is having some problems, i seem to experience lag spikes when playing "Dota" online. anyadvise?


Make sure that your internet speed is fast so you wont get any lag while playing "DOTA". Another case is that you might be too far from your wireless router that's why you are experiencing lag spikes. Also try to reinstall the driver of your router if it's not the case. Are you experiencing this while only playing dota?

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.

Envision Monitor doesn't turn on.


monitor has sustained damage from the power fluctuation's from the outage I would report it to your power company they are obligated to replace any damaged equipment that may be damaged because of their failure to provide non outage service and then go take the monitor to a repair center they can determine if the boards internally were hit with a power spike and damaged, meanwhile while you send the report to the power company you can either buy a new one and then submit the price for refund from the power company

Lag Spikes


Well, sounds like what you need is QoS (Quality of Service) on your router. It is a system that some routers have that will prioritize some traffic over others.
I have looked over the manual for your router and it does not seem to have that feature. The built in QoS of windows apparently does not work to well either.
Sorry, but it looks like you might have to try to get another router.
