Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

Powering up problems.

Hello, i have an Emachine model, W3107. The other day, a loose wire inside the case grounded. It blew the suge stipe. After fixing the wire problem, and reseting the surge protector, the Pc will start to reboot. However, it wont. the only thing that shows on my monitor is "no signal"
The no signal will only stay there for about a second, then the monitor will go black. On my monitor while powering on the light is green, after the no signal box goes away, the same green light will turn orange/amber. The whole time, both cooling fans are running, and the will not stop. Wondering what is going on. is the motherboad fried? some say its a fure, others say to check the cable from my video card to the monitor? If it is something simple as a fuse, where would the fuse be located at? in the power supply, on the motherboard? Last, what would the fuse look like? thanks a million.

Try using another monitor that you know works. Then try another video card. The fans are running because the computer is running ---but the monitor is not. Green to Amber means monitor is not on.
A lot can go wrong with loose wires that shouldn't be loose.
But I would try this first.

Emachine w3107 wiring diagram


Good luck on finding a wiring diagram. Usually those plugs represent the Power Button, the Hard Drive and the other sometimes represents a reset button. If you remove the cover and sit the computer on it's side, take a flashlight so you can see inside at the motherboard. If you look from where the wires come from on the front they usually stick into little prongs on the side of the motherboard. The motherboard will have little written identifiers such as hdd for the hard drive light, pwr for power or power reset, fan for fan, etc.

Also sometimes if you look on the little piece at the end of the red, white and black wires where it plugs into the motherboard prongs, sometimes it will have writing on it as to which one it is.

My emachine does not load any dvd rom disc's it will read a cd rom disc but will not recognize the dvd's.model # w3107 2006 year


more then likely the DVD laser part of the drive has burned out, i have nearly the same model and had to replace mine a couple years ago!! This is a classic situation, the CDROM laser is still functional, but DVD is inop!!! New DVD-RW Drives about $20 on www.NewEgg.com and even cheaper on www.eBay.com for a decent DVD-ROM model!!! Easy fix too, just make sure you get the IDE style, or make even faster with SATA, if you have a SATA available on your system!!

I don't so much have a problem. It's more of a question. I need to know what graphics cards are compatible with an emachine w3107, or atleast what makes one compatible so i know what to look for.


You currently have a NVIDIA GeForce 6100, if you have not upgraded already. You will need to be looking for any NVIDIA video card, and you can follow this link to see what you can get:
http://www.nvidia.com/content/HelpMeChoose/fx2/HelpMeChoose.asp?lang=en-us

unfortunately it does not say how many WATTS your power supply is on the emachine website so please make sure you see the requirements for the video card and see how many WATTS are require. You may need to upgrade your power supply.

Hope this helps, and I hope you find what you need and enjoy it! Please don't forget to rate, Thanks!

EMachine W3107 will not boot, no display.


Have you tried a different Graphics Card, looks to me like the onboard graphics card is at fault, there should be an AGP slot or PCI slot that you can plug a new Graphics card into then you should be fine...
