Question about E-Machines M5310 PC Notebook

4 Answers

When you turn it on nothing happens

I have a e machines m5310 that a couple of years ago qiute and we decided to get it out again. When you push the power button everything lights up but nothing happpens. No sound no picture but the cd drive sometimes works. And yes i have plugged it into an external monitor what should i do I have an e-machine M5310 laptop. It will no longer turn on when I try to power it up, even with a AC adapter plugged in. Could it be the battery, the power supply or both? It also used to run rather hot. It has an Athlon XP-14 processor and runs Windows XP home edition. I know the battery is no good, but would replacing that alone fix it?

Probably there is lockup. release the battery and disconnect the power cord press and the power button for 7 seconds to perform component discharge. Connect power and test.

Good Luck

Try starting without the battery. Then try alternating the memory, a bad battery or memory chip can cause this.

No, replacing the battery alone will not fix it. This sounds like the motherboard will need to be replaced.

    Try to replace the AC Adapter or the battery. If that doesnt work out bring it to a Geek Squad like at Best Buy.

    Do NOT under any circumstances bring it to Geek Squad. You will get it back in worse shape. Go to ripoffreport.com and check it out for yourself. I make a lot of money fixing geek squad's screwups.

Dell E6400 won't boot up (most of the time)


Computer does not boot up
The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

When i push the power button on my emachine the e screen flashes and it wont turn on what do i do to fix this?


If you just did a memory upgrade then the new chip is either not seated properly or the wrong type or even bad. Since it won't boot the problem is the ram in memory slot one. You need to rock it a bit to make sure it is seated before snapping it in. If it is the wrong speed or type you need to exchange it. It can also be bad but that usually means a counterfeit these days or you gave it a static shock and burned it out..

If you put your old ram back in you should be able to work again until you get the ram replaced.

Try to perform power drain on the motherboard.

heres the steps:
take out the battery
unplug the power adapter
press and hold power button for 30secs
put the battery back in
plug in the power adapter
power on the computer

if same issue will happen then you need a battery replacement.

Power Issue


sounds suspiciosly like your chord fitting is damaged(loose wires at connection)and shorting.if possible try a friends power supply with same connecter type before renewing cos could be faulty(loose)connection at pc(inside)constant pushing and pulling of connections often causes 1. loose split or disconnected wires at male connection or 2.loose pins on motherboard female connection or broken housing (not difficult to repair)more difficult to find out how to get to internal connection.
