Still having trouble with EMachines T3882

Man, I am about ready to throw this thing out the window....

OK, I tried all three boot up scenerios - none of them worked. The monitor is now acting crazy. When I turn the monitor on, it shows a tri-colored square (red, blue, green) on a black background The red third reads "Monitor Selft Test", the blue reads "Your monitor is working correctly, the green says "check computer power and monitor cable". This square keeps scrolling up and down a couple of times and then the monitor goes into the power safeing mode. No key stroke or mouse movement brings it back.

No longer getting Windows/EMachines logo so does this mean the computer is not trying to come up in Windows anymore?

The monitor is EMachines 17f3.

I feel your pain. I finally moved my pc to a room with no windows! But seriously, try a different monitor first. See if you can borrow someone's to just try it before you do anything else. If that borrowed monitor works fine, then you know what the problem is. (Which I believe is the problem.) By the way, what started all of your problems?

Cant boot up EMachines T3882 no quick boot and f8 does nothing, what do i do?


If you can't get into the bios, you can't start a repair, when it's booting, continually press F2 to get the bios up, if that does nothing reboot an continualy press Del, this is for the bios menu and set the cd drive as first boot device.

If not continually press F8 on boot up this is safe mode, then when youre in highlight last known good configuration and press Enter.

Give this a try as your pc will not be set to boot from cdrom as default and will just try to boot into windows.

My eMachines T3882 with Windows XP just reboots over and over


Sounds like a sick hard drive. When it starts to reboot, press F8 and choose Windows Diagnostic Test. It will show a hard drive failure if one exists. If it finds a hard drive error, the hard drive is junk and needs replacing. Once replaced, you can run your restore/recovery disk to install Windows back to the condition it was in when you bought it.
