EMachine T1840 Restore

I am trying to fix the above stated computer for this older lady. The T1840 was taking forever to boot, she started getting pop-ups constantly. I recommended a full restore after talking to her on the phone for a couple hours removing spyware and other stuff bogging her computer down. We put in the restore disc 1 and rebooted and got the restore started, About 6% into the Symantic Ghost then stopped and got an Error 347 dialog box. We tried this several times but got the same thing. Now when she boots up, The E-Machine start-up screen starts then immedietly goes to the blank black screen with the curser blinking in the top left corner. That is as far as it gets now, She can't even get to the windows XP start up. Do you have any suggestions on how to get it going. She did do everything in as for what the restore instructions that came with the computer. Thank You

Hi f14tomcataoc:
If you do some research on the Net, you will see that this model of computers have had problems with the motherboards. I have had one given to me. ...bad mother board.

If you want to keep the configuration of the machine, it may be best to get another small board to fit this machine. You will have to re-install the Windows system to get all the drivers and the bios to work.

Let's put the computer in clean boot state and check if any third-party program is causing this issue.
Putting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. If yes, you may have to contact the program manufacturer for any updates or uninstall and re-install the program.
Here's the article you may refer to for steps with reference to the same.

Use this link if you are using Windows XP:
How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state
Note: After troubleshooting, make sure to put the computer to start as usual as mentioned here:
To configure Windows to use a Normal startup state
After you used the clean boot to resolve your problem, you can follow these steps to configure Windows XP to start normally.

a. Click Start, and then click Run.
b. Type msconfig, and then click OK. The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed.
c. Click the General tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services, and then click OK.
d. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

Hello, I have Vista and everytime after my computer boots, I get a pop-up that states: KBD EXE is not working. What is this and how do I fix this problem? Thanks, Pat

Assuming that once it starts everything is OK and the computer functions normally, try this:
Right above the start ball, there is a command line. In that white space, type MSCONFIG.
When the window opens, click on the startup tab. Find the KBD.EXE command and uncheck the box next to it. This will tell it not to run.
Now restart the computer. In Vista you'll get a message that a program was blocked. Tell it to run the blocked program. When it opens (the system configuration utility), check the little box that says not to display it again. Now everything should work.

EMachines T1840 mother board crash

You need to get hold of a boot CD - BartPE is great for this. Put the hard drive in another computer, and you'll find it more than likely blue screens, as the Drive Controller Drivers don't match the motherboard. Run a program called FIX-IDE, reboot, and it should at least boot. You might find that all sorts of other bits don't work though, but your apps should. Download the drivers for the new board and you should be off and away.

EMachine T1840 Will Not Boot

Well the first thing is first. Usually depends on the Operating system. If it is a later version of XP or even Vista. Try to boot it from the restore cd. They will usually tell you if your going to lose important information and ask you if you would like to back up the information. Based upon that you can move forward or not move forward.

Laptop takes forever to boot

you either have to many programmes on start up, or you more than likely have a trojan or virus, you probably get pop ups when on the net.

to clear unwanted programmes from the startup download and install free CCleaner and click the tools menu and then startup list, you can then remove, although this doesn't uninstal the programme, just stop it starting aoutomatically
