Changed BIOS and now emachine w3052 woulnt boot

I moved the FBS in the BIOS up one notch in a attempt to gain a little more speed... when i tried to save the changes the screen went black and has stayed like that for about 3 hours... and i have turned the computer off and on once but that didnt help any... so i have no idea how to fix it... if nothing else ill just swap a motherboard from a dell that has a 2.66 GHz pentium 4 and 256 MB of RAM but i believe i can use the 512 MB stick from the emachine so there is more RAM... let me know im some what desperte...

Try resetting BIOS
On the motherboard will be written clear cmos or bios this will be a small 2 or 3 pin connector
2 pin remove the jumper which is only on one pin and fit it over both for 15 or 20 seconds remove jumper fit back over 1 pin reboot all things being equal your computer should start

3 pin remove jumper from pins noting which pins it is on fit jumper over middle pin and the one it was not on before leave for 15 or 20 seconds replace jumper over original pins and reboot

How do you disable the onboard graphics on an emachines C2825? I am attempting to install a Sapphire Radeon HD 4650 AGP video card, but my computer will not boot when i plug in the new video card. I have...


First of all that motherboard is too weak to fully use that video card, you could get the same framerate in games using a video card 2 generations older. 
Proper way of installing a new card:
1. uninstall the driver of the old one and reboot in BIOS - in there put all settings to auto;
2. shutdown the pc and install the new card; connect the monitor to it;
3. boot into BIOS, disable the onboard video card and reboot;
4. boot normally and install the driver.

Replaced hdd on emachine w3615,light on mobo but it wont come on.


Hi ipackrat21, that little green led you see is telling you the motherboard has standby power. (Its supposed to be green & on).
Make sure the hdd jumper is set to, master without a slave). In a one hdd system.
When you replaced the hdd you also need to enter the bios menu.
In the bios you'll need to make some changes. First you should see the new hdd listed in the bios. (Normally it list the hdd by model). If your hdd is shown than go to the title "BOOT". You need to set the boot order. A normal boot order would list like so;
First boot device, Floppy disk drive".
Second boot device, "CR-ROM" drive.
Third boot device, "Your new hdd".
If your bios does not see your hdd you'll need to re-check the data cable from the board to the drive. (Make sure it is fully connected).
If the drive is an IDE/PATA make sure it has power. A 4-pin molex.

Still have trouble, post it here.

1333 FSB processor only runs with fsb set to 1066 in bios


RIArchangel, you're board is not able to run 1333fsb; it can only run at 1066fsb. Though setting the bios to auto should not cause the system to lock up, unless you are over-clocking other settings in the system bios.
Changing you're memory to the faster dual channel 667 will increase the systems over all performance but it will not change the fact that the board can only run at 1066fsb.
If you have the time, take a read over this link. 1333fsb over 1066fsb. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/230788-30-1333-1066

EMACHINES W3052 SUTS DOWN AND THEN RESTARTS ON ITS OWN


Well, you are right the power supply is good. But the power isn't enough to support your system. My advise, you have to change your power supply to "real power type". The price is more than the normal type even if it is the sama rating.

EMachine W3052 with FIC K7MNF-64 Mobo


I did just solve all my problems with my own FIC K7MNF-64

Stop error: 0x0000007b / may be caused by attempting to load XP HOME

I've not determined exactly why attempting to load XP Home will cause
error 0x0000007b on the FIC K7MNF-64 , but it does , and it's a situaion not covered in the microsoft artical on it.

From what I can gather XP pro was the offical operating sytem for the board which I've now loaded to mine , windows 98/ME can load to it without problem so that rules out a hardware issue on my end.

eMachine T3395 or W3050 shipped with the FIC K7MNF-64 in them.

Drivers can still be obtained from eMachine for the board as of 8-26-2008
but for XP pro only from what I can see. you may need to hunt around for
98/ME drivers , even if you manage to get 98/ME drivers you will most likely still have a PCI Universal Serial Bus issue so best to load XP pro if possible. biggrin.gif


I hope this information saves some people alot of time.

May the nForce2 be with you , always.

Fastest socket A processor?


i think you will find that you are in fact using the fastest speed processor for the socket 'A' type of motherboard as AMD has changed to socket 754 or 939 for dual core processors. You can clock the speed a little in the bios, if you go to the peocessor section in the bios and look at the clock speed probably set at 133MHZ you can move it up 1 increment at a time, eg 134MHZ and keep trying until the pc wont boot up, at which point you will have to reset the cmos settings JBAT1 terminal and then set it again to the fastest you got it to before it wouldnt boot.
