You have a motherboard fault try changing memory video card for a different one
or try unplugging power cord from back of computer and leaving out for 10 or 15 minutes reconnect and try again

    check motherboard settings for your cpu front side bus speeds and clock speed

    you could try removing the motherboard battery and leaving out for at least 1 hour sometimes it takes longer
    or try resetting bios this time when in reset boot computer and turn off straight away then set to jumper default and reboot
    this is no excuse but when you overclocked cpu it got damaged and cannot be fixed all I am trying is to try to recover your system

I have rebuilt this computer several times. from the ground up. now I get 3 long persistant beeps. according the computer home .com is a video problem? is this true? Thank, Jack

PC generates three long beeps (1 Second Cycle three times then 2.5 Secondds Pause) when there is Memory (RAM) Error. Try inserting DIMMs again. Make sure that the timings (Clock Speed) of DIMMs are compatible (matches) with your motherboard.

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

AMI BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

Emachines desktop stopped booting to bios/windows I get a typical startup beep followed a few seconds later by two shorter beeps.

your board might not be on this list but it might give you some idea's of what to try next ( see link ) guess would be a bios flash which would mean getting on another pc/laptop,downloading the bios flash/save on a memory stick( or external hard drive ) boot pc while tapping F12 and scrolling down to boot from external ..but have a look here and see if anything helps...good luck

I have an EMachines VL33 motherboard on a T4852 Desktop. I am getting a constant on-off Beep Code when booting at times. Other times it will not boot at all. Do you know where I can get the Beep...

The eMachines T4852 desktop computer has an FIC VL33G motherboard.
(First International Computer {Inc}

Has an Intel 865G motherboard chipset.

Part number on the Northbridge chip is Intel 82865G (Under the Heatsink)
Part number on the Southbridge chip is Intel 82801EB, or Intel 82801ER

Maximum Amount of ram memory is 2GB.
Has two ram memory slots.
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.
Uses DDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 333MegaHertz. (333MHz) {Best}
Also known as PC2700

Socket 478 processor socket.
Can use Intel Pentium 4 processors with up to a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (533MHz FSB)

(Not advertising, just thought I would throw the above, in)

Has an AGP expansion slot for a graphics card.
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards.

Uses an Award BIOS, date 22.2.2005

Award BIOS beep codes,

AW, that's what I was going to say!

Ram Memory problem.

Suggest you remove all Ram Memory modules, and clean the gold plated contact pins.

A) Computer unplugged from power
B) Observe Anti-Static Precautions

C) Clean the contact pins with a pencil eraser.
If you are Not using a solid eraser refrain from letting the metal band touch the contact pins.

Clean each contact pin, both sides.
(184 contact pins. 92 on each side)

Just rub the eraser up, and down on the contact pins. You don't have to scrub them very hard.
After you have finished it may look as though you have done nothing at all.
I assure you that you have.

Doesn't take much corrosion on a gold plated contact pin to make a bad contact surface.

Use air to remove the eraser dust.
If you have a can of compressed air for computers available use it. (Also clean the ram memory slots out with air, if you do)

If a can of air is not available air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.
Reinstall the ram memory module/s.

Close the computer case, plug the computer into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Emachines 390 blinking led but no image

The problem could be many thing. Does it beep ? Can you see a white blinker on the upper left corner of the screen ? If you answer no for both questions, it coulb be the internal memory (ram) that is defect or even just dusty. But many other things could cause that. you can go to the link below and chat with a eMachine technicien.By the way when you try to turn off the computer, hold the power button until the computer shuts down.

My Emachines_w2888 will not boot up. I get a, (NO SIGNAL INPUT).

If all you have done is upgrade the memory, take out one stick of memory and see if the computer will start up. If it acts the same way it has been acting, take out the other stick of memory and put the first stick of memory back in. You could have a bad stick of memory. Does the computer make any beeping noises when you try to start it? Those beeps are the BIOS way of telling you there is a problem. One BIOS beep means the system is starting if you have more than one beep, there could be a problem, the number of beeps along with the brand of BIOS will give you a clue as to what the problem is. Once you know the number of beeps and the brand of BIOS you can search the Internet for what the problem might be. Your monitor showing "NO SIGNAL INPUT" is its way of saying "I'm ok but something else is wrong".

Good luck
