Emachine won't turn on

I moved my computer from one room to the other and the fan would turn on but then it wouldn't reboot. We figured out that it wasn't getting enough power from the outlet so we did some rewiring. I plugged my computer in to a surge protector and turned it on. It started to boot up and then it just shut itself off. Now it won't turn on at all. Not even the fan. I don't really know anything about the inside of the tower so I will need detail descriptions if you have me do something. I also took it to another outlet and it won't do anything.. Thank you..

If your computer functioned before you transported it, the reason it wouldn't boot is due to loosened connections. Ground yourself by placing your hands on both sides of your CPU to remove static electricity in your body. Open your computer (of course unplugged), remove and reinsert all the cards (video card, sound card, memory modules) into their slots firmly. Reboot.

As for Teana, which tabs are you talking about? Can you provide a picture?

Emachine hot spot on side of cabinet


Computer processors can run hot. It is important to make sure they are being cooled properly and that the fans are all working. Processor temperatures can run upwards of 75°C/167°F before the built in safety shuts your computer off.

I can figure out how to switch wireless on my emachine desk top its 2 years old purchased from cosco had ethernet now i moved and using wifi can connect to wifi does not show where i can choose my wireless...


If it's a desktop it may not have a wireless card installed on it. I would recommend going to the eMachines website and look up the model of your desktop to see the information on what was included in it. You may need to purchase a USB WiFi adapter to add wireless to the computer.

Diagram emachine wiring


There is no specific wiring for eMachine. your wiring goes from power supply (big box with fan) to motherboard (large board with many components) to hard drive, cd rom, fan, etc. pretty easy to figure out if you look closely

Emachine T5234 beeps 5 times and won't turn on


5 Short BeepsYour motherboard is complaining. Try reseating the memory and rebooting. If that doesn't help, you should consider another motherboard. You could probably get away with just replacing the CPU, but that's not too cost-effective. Its just time to upgrade!

Acer desktp internal ram installation needed


I'm a bit confused....did you have all four of these in the ACER and are trying to put the 2x1GB into the Emachine? And that the 2x1 GB wouldn't work in the Emachine but they did in the ACER and that the 2x512 Acer cards worked in the emachine?

If that is what happened here is my best guess. The ACER MOBO will support 533/667/800 MHZ DDR2 RAM. The Emachine will only support 533 RAM. Iys possible the 2x1GB are either 667 or 800 MHZ and are not compatible with the Emachine but will work in the ACER.

Most probably is a RAM memory issue, those beeps are issued when a RAM module can not be found, may be the machine sufferend a crash an the ram jumped out of it's slot (less probable) or just broke (Most probably) certainly a tecnician can save your data to another PC or even, fix the broken PC by replacing the broken RAM module with a new one

I have a EMachine T6534 which won't start. I shut


I agree...sounds like a power supply problem. Typically a bad power supply will not damage the motherboard. It should still be functional.

Emachine T6216 Automatically Shuts down


Hi MIchael,

Before I start replacing hardware, I would boot to safemode, and let it run that way to see of the problem repeats. In Safemode, a lot of drivers and software that may be causing the problem won't start up.

As soon as your start your machine, tap the F8 key about twice a second. This should bring up a screen with several options. Select Safemode. You will get some warning, so just click yes on those. Your screen will look really strange, since your video drivers won't install. Let it run like that for a few hours. BTW, you won't have internet.
If that still reboots, or shuts down, chance are good it a hardware issue. Might be your Heatsink on the cpu is too dirty to cool, but the techs you took it to should have cleaned that.
Get back with us, and post how that works please.
You can also right click on My Computer>Manage>Event Viewer and look thru the different catagories. Look for issues with red marks on them. To read them, just click on them. This may give you idea what is failing.
A issues that is random is hard to troubleshoot.
Good Luck!
