Is your Computer free of Malware ,etc , work on what you can clean off the Computer,as a !st try , see if it make a difference, last resort to reload Windows 7.

eMachines... | Answered on Mar 12, 2015


If system restore not working you can always try to do a repair operation with the disks that came with your machine. If you have no disks you are out of luck and will have to reload the machine with new software.

If concerned about losing data/files you can remove the hard drive and install it as secondary on another working machine, download the files you want to a usb stick and reload the hard drive and re install the files you previously saved. Good luck

Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty



One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive



Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems



motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail



check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working



also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat

Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.


Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.

hope this helps

Dear Allie,
With my own setup, I had to buy a 2xmetre long cable with identical audio plugs at each end. One end plugs into the audio-out socket on my computer & the other plugs into the audio-in socket on my stereo. Hope this helps; if not please post more detailed information! 'b'ye!

This may be something that Windows (or the computer is telling Windows) to do. Everyone wants to reduce the power consumption in the computer, so be default your monitor may be going into 'sleep' mode and turning off.
1) To change this, RIGHT click on the Windows desktop. 2) When the menu appears, select PROPERTIES, then select the SCREEN SAVER tab. 3) There are 2 things to check here. First at the top, make sure that your screen saver is selecting something beside BLANK. This will cause the monitor to blank out and appear to have turned off. 4) The second thing to check is the POWER settings. Click the POWER button at the bottom on the screen. 5) Now, you will see 2 rows of power options, one for when the computer is plugged in (which is all the time with your desktop) and the other is when on batteries. We're concerned with the PLUGGED IN settings. 6) Make sure the TURN OFF MONITOR setting is set for NEVER. This will ensure that your monitor never turns off on you. 7) Now click OK and OK and now your monitor shouldn't turn off on you.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!
I strive for '4 Thumbs Up'! If I've assisted you, I'd greatly appreciate you taking the time to provide me with a favorable rating. Thanks so much!

cr2032 / just a plain old watch battery

It is probably best to remove the battery and look at it for the number.

eMachines... | Answered on Jan 16, 2014


There is a 3.3 Volt button battery on your motherboard, that powers the BIOS chip so it can remember the current date and time. If you replace that battery then set the time and date the computer should no longer default back to 2008.

To remove the battery press the small metal clip towards the edge of the battery, the battery will then pop out. Simply press the new battery into place. Make sure you are able to see the writing on the top of the battery for the correct polarity.

If you attempt to do this yourself be sure to unplug the computer than press and hold the power button for about 4 seconds to de-energize the motherboard.

Should you not feel comfortable doing this any repair shop should be able to do this repair while you wait as it takes generally less than 2 minutes.

There is something else wrong like bad RAM, or a failed CPU fan. Open it. Turn on and verify the CPU fan is running. If not fix the fan immediately before the CPU fry's.

Hi,
The this particular model of the computer has one spare PCI express slot , where an external audio card can be put in. Open the the system tower and look for an empty black slot on the motherboard.

You can purchase a PCI express sound card .
