I have a used emachine computer not the one that iam using but a deck top model # T3112 and theres a password i dont know so i cant use my computer and would like to know how to get pass the password


You Need To open The CPU(Or tower) to acces the motherboard, the you need to find the CMOS jumper and switch it one spot over the CLR or clear, that will clear the password. If that don't work remove the battery on the motherboard for few seconds then reinstall it. Good luck. 713aa25d-65db-4817-b04a-35f7ab69b846.jpg

My e machine desktop model w3503 is using only 368 of ram out 512MB why


Don't go by what you see in windows as far as the memory that is being used. Go into the BIOS of yoru emachine and in the BIOS it will tell you how much memory is in your system. As long as the total memory in there is 512mb, that is what matters. Windows doesn't always give accurate info but the BIOS will.

If the BIOS doesn't show the full 512 then its either a memory stick problem or a motherboard issue and you won't truly know for sure until you try other memory sticks.

Amber colored power light on eMachine W3503


The amber power light indicates that your computer has been "sleeping" or "hibernating" and usually all it takes to restart the computer is tapping a key on the keyboard. If this is not the case, try holding the Power switch down for 6-10 seconds to force the system off. Restart in Safe Mode and try to find the settings for Sleep/hibernate, open the control panel and open the Screen Saver. Select "Change Power Settings" and set it for "Never" on sleep and hybernate.

Yellow question on sm bus controller, pci device and video controller


For Emachines W3503, download the chipset drivers for ATI Radeon® Xpress 200 at http://e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket775/D101GGC_downloads.shtml which provides all drivers for this model of computer.

This resolves Sm Bus Controller driver problem.

Also a good tool can be driver detective for emachines http://www.drivershq.com/Drivers/eMachines/W-Series/W3503/22605/22758/37169/Drivers.aspx

If you are recieving "Error 22: A critical error has occurred while initializing DirectDraw." while trying to play Diablo 2, Warcraft III, or World of Warcraft, it is because direct draw has been disabled. I reenabled mine by installing the catalyst at http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html for Windows XP Media Center Edition - Radeon - Radeon X300 Series.. Then use the Catalyst Control Center to renable DirectDraw.
