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

Well I think farmville is a flash or java based game. Make sure you have the latest updates for both those programs.
Also what browser are you using? Try Firefox or google chrome. One of the above will fix it I am pretty sure.

Video card or Power supply?


well if you overclocked you video card you have to increase your video card voltage by using bios for not having a crash. this could be as well your overclocking problem. try to use your default video card clocks and sea what will happen. it could be becouse your psu is low on power four your computer components.

when the computer starts- click START - RUN - type MSCONFIG in the text box - select the startup tab at the top- uncheck all boxes but your virus protection and ones having to do with your mouse and keyboard. hit apply and ok - reboot.
run the game and see if the freezes continue.

My PS3 is only 2 months old, i have had problems since 2nd day of gaming. The main issue is it freezes/crashes alot, what should i do?


Hey,

as its only two months old, it may be a internal problem, but make sure the ps2 has good airflow and the games arent dirty, you can contact your dealer about the problem.

Thanks,
Ekse
