Sounds like to me you have a video card going out probably needs to be replaced or you may want to turn off the computer and open the case and remove the card and clean it really good and put it back in and then power up the computer and start it up and see if that helps ok please keep me posted on this ok best regards mike

Your Memory card is the problem.

Try this steps:

1. Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

2. Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

3. Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

4.Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer. If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.

How can I get more speed from my computer? When trying to play any online games it freezes and crashes


install more ram. i hate to bash on a pc manufacturer but emachines tends to go with lowest bidder parts. it's probably your graphics that can't keep up and it may be overheating or overloading the cache/buffer. if you give me your model number and what game you're playing i can verify this. you need to make sure your system has supports the minimum requirements for the game

While playing the game, it will suddenly make a loud sound the freeze up. What can i do to do fix this?


I have the exact same problem when I play Lego Batman on my Wii. Unfortunately, since the Wii version is the same as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, it has lots of data that the Wii console can't handle sometimes, thus making that loud noise and freezing up. You can't fix it, but the best solution would be to:
1) Unplug the Wii, then plug it back in.
2) Start up the game and try that same part again. It should work. If it doesn't, just keep trying.
*Note: When you plug it back in and start the game again, don't do any other levels before the level that keeps freezing up and making that loud noise. I hope this helps.

Its crashing in the middle off games!!


This is interesting . let me guss just before it happens somtimes gets white or green vertical lines.
I know what the problem is , but im surprised to hear its happening with newer consoles.

The Problem ,there are about 9-10 solder ball just under the hot spot on the G.P.U.
after it seem a relatively short period of time (usage) they start to get thermal fatigue
and fracture open ,and cause a long list of problems .Im afraid the only way to fix
it will void the warranty.

Recommendations :Return it to MS and get a replacement

Sorry this probably wasn't much help .

Crashing/freezing when playing game/movie (blu-ray/dvd)


fine mechanics in the device might be damaged. There are also cases that involve loud screeching noises when this happens. It could be due to over use, the device got wet and so on. For now, I think the problem with that is the Disc Reader. Do check if it is covered with dirt or is loose. Some cases are: the reader comes off when the CD is taken out. I hope this helps! It's all in the reader, or it could be in the disc itself, clean the disc before inserting it into the device. After using the device, take out the disc and lightly blow on the reader to remove dirt. Hope that does the job..!

Wii Freezes and makes loud noise playing nhl 2K9


The game was released with a number of serious glitches. It's the publisher's fault, not yours. You can try to get the retailer to refund your money, but you will probably have to go to the publisher (2K Sports) to get your money back, and it probably won't be easy.

Sorry... and good luck.

Sims 2 plus expansion packs keep crashing


Im not positive but it may work. Go to "Start", "Control Panel", "Hardware and Sound", then "Power Options". Once you have found "Power Options" your going to want to set your computer to "High Perfomance" mode. You computer will now run your hardware at level its supposed to be ran at. But, power usage will go up though. So as long as your not leaving your computer on for long extended periods of time, its ok. But if you are, I recommend turning it back to "Balanced" mode. Hope this helps. Get back to me if you need anything else.
