I am not sure what you mean "if you reboot you will loose all the data" or do you mean reformat your hard drive? You should be able to reboot your system in safe mode which will load only the minimal drivers for your system to work. Safe mode can be used to fix a lot of problems and should not cause you to loose any data. Once you have your system up in safe mode you can use your recovery console to help you troubleshoot and fix many problems including corrupt files from viruses or use " last known good configuration" etc. In the future it is always a good idea to back up your system and burn the back up to a disk, since you have a business this should be done every two days. You can also make a boot disk that can help you if you encounter a problem in the future. Another option is cloning your hard drive which you can buy thrid party software that will make this easy, but you will need to have another hard drive and the software to do this. If your friend has more technical knowledge about computers than you, he should be able to help explain the things I mentioned. Hope this helps, please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

You need to install the video driver for your computer- Usually there is a disk with drivers, however you can go to the Emachines support site- and download your drivers

For 5 years i had 1 gb memory single stick in my eMachines W3502 desktop PC, and it was running good, untill i installed windows 7 ultimate 64bit, it`s still runing good, but sometimes it gets slow because...

Do you get any error beeps when you turn on your computer? Check this list here:

Also, there are three different types of RAM: DDR1, DDR2 and DDR3. I have never come across a computer that will run two different types simultaneously, if your motherboard supports both DDR2 and DDR3 (The pins and key are different, so they won't fit in a non supported slot)

If both sticks of RAM are exactly the same, try running it in dual channel mode, by inserting the RAM sticks in the same coloured slots on motherboard, providing your motherboard supports this

Ok, i have two things to ask 1: Where is the video card on a emachines W3503? 2: Could a video card swap be done between a W3503 and a W3052? Thank you for viewing :)

1. The emachines W3503 has an integrated ATI Radeon™ X300 based graphics card. It has also a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available.

2. The emachines W3052 has a NVIDIA® GeForce®4™ MX graphics card. I'm not sure whether it is integrated or not, but I'm sure that if it is not, it will be an AGP graphics card. Since The emachines W3503 has a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available for installing a graphics card, the swapping of graphics cards between the 2 machines is not possible since they support different types of graphics cards.
