Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

2 Answers

When my computer sits for extended periods of time the screen goes to vertical lines with color patterns of the background. I have to shut the computer down by holding in the on button to get it of. It then boots fine. Once it sets again then it lines out again. By placing the computer in stand by I have elininated the line out problem but would like to fix it so that it do not have to put it to sleep all the time.

Sounds like a heating issue. Look inside and check that the chassis , video and processor fans are working. You may have to clean the fans.

I would look for a more compatible screen saver or remove the option completely.
It could be caused by an incorrect or corrupt VGA Board driver.

How to reset nokia mobiles life timer to ''0''


Nokia life timer is a counter that keeps track of the Total call time of your phone. It will show how much the phone has been used, and it?s the best thing to check if you?re planning to buy a used Nokia Mobile.
To see the Total Call Time or the life timer counter, On the standby screen type the following code *#92702689# (Easy way to remember this is ? *#war0anty#). And it will pop up a message that shows the life timer in hours and minutes.

Here is a detailed procedure to make this life timer zero.


REQUIREMENTS:
The following files are required to reset the life timer:
  1. Nemesis service suite link: Download from Here
  2. lifetimer.pm file: Download Here
PROCEDURE:
1. Download and Extract the lifetimer.pm file, and Download Nemesis Service Suite.

2. Install Nemesis Service Suite on your Computer, It won?t take much time.(select the first option)

3. Install Nokia Cable Drivers (No need to install, if you have Nokia PC Suite already installed)

4. Connect The Phone in ?PC Suite? Mode to the PC

5. Open Nemesis Service Software

6. Click on ?Scan for new Device? Button on Top right Corner 



7. It Will take a few seconds to scan, and it will load up the software interface after communicating with the Phone.

8. Click the ?Phone Info? Button.


9. On the Bottom, Select and open the ?Permanent Memory? Tab, which is next to the Fbus info.


10. Click the ?Write? button on Below right, and open the Extracted lifetimer.pm file on your PC. 


11. After the lifetimer.pm file is opened , it will immediately start writing it to the Phone?s EEPROM Area.




12. The Procedure will end when the progress bar reaches 20%. This is normal , and on the bottom right side, it will display its done.

13. Unplug the Phone, and Restart it.

14. After boot up, Check the life timer .


Note: This method has been tested on following devices: Nokia 6630, 6670, 6680, 5500 sport, 5700XM, 6110 Navigator, 6120 Classic, N70, N72, N73,N76, E50, E51, E61i, E65, N80, N91, N95, N95 8GB, 5800XM Mobile devices. If you want to try it on other S60v3 or S60v5 mobiles, do it at your own risk.


Caution:
  • Power Failure During Writing will cause damage to the Phone, And there is a chance that it might brick the phone as well.
  • Loose, worn out Data Cables Might fail the Writing process, and there are chances of damage to the EEPROM area of the phone.
  • Do not attempt this with phones that are not included in the confirmed list.

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!
