Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
My daughter’s T6420 E-Machine stopped working properly. The PC, during Shut-Down immediately displayed “NO SYNC” on the monitor and sat there with the Power light indicator still on. It would shut down after holding the power button for a few seconds.
During start-up and/or re-start the processor fan comes on at full force, NO-SYNC is displayed on the monitor, the light for the CD/DVD combo flickers indicating recognition, the light flickers indicating HD activity and then it just sits there like a bump on a log.
I have updated all the drivers I can find from e-machine and MS. After that, it will, finally, go into a shut-down/power off during shut down only (not Re-start).
I have found that if I hit the F8 key after a few (‘hold down power button) until it goes off. Then hit the power again to start. Sometimes it works and sometimes not.
No sync means no video signal to the monitor. The rest sounds like a corrupted OS. This could be from a number of reasons, including a virus. If you have NORTON or MacAfee, Your open to a lot of attacks. Get AVG free, and use Mozilla instead of IE.
The reason the fans come on full speed is the MB senses a high temp on the CPU, until the bios fan control takes over after POST. This is normal on most systems.
