20 Most Recent E-Machines W3050 PC Desktop Questions & Answers

Question: Did it ever work? Is it only recovery from sleep? Will it boot normally if you unplug the computer while it is on (forced crash) and then restart. Will it boot in Safe mode? Getting stuck at the welcome screen indicates a driver not loading properly. Since the display does not work, likely the video drivers. Update with the newest driver from Nvidia for your system. Windows XP has had problems in the past with recovering from power management settings like hibernate and sleep.

You must have an authorised (legal copy) of windows xp.

Registering Windows XP enables Microsoft to notify you of essential program updates, security issues and available program patches.

Although registration is optional, you are required to first validate and activate your software to ensure that it is not a pirated copy.

Windows XP has a built-in function that will lock a non-activated genuine Microsoft product after it has run for 30 days

From the Start menu, click "All Programs," then "Activate Windows."

A blue window will appear with a picture depicting a set of keys in the top-left corner, and a message saying "Let's Activate Windows."

Click the topmost radio button marked "Yes, let's activate Windows now."

Click the white "Next" button on the lower-right corner of the window and follow the instructions to activate your copy of Windows XP.

The final blue window of the activation process will be marked "Register With Microsoft?" Click the white "Yes" button at the lower-right corner.

A new pop-up window marked "Collecting Registration Data" will appear.

Fill in the form by typing your personal details into the sections provided.

At the foot of the form you will find two blank white squares followed by messages asking whether you wish to receive special offers and promotional material from Microsoft.

Click on one or both of the white squares if you wish to participate; if not, leave them blank. Click the white "Next" button in the lower right corner of your screen.

A "Thank You" message will appear. Click the white "OK" button in the lower-right corner to complete the Windows XP registration process.

Hope this helps.

You have to use the original manufacturer Installation CD.
Among other things it contains all the needed drivers for your computer.
As a tip, when you have the yellow exclamation mark on the device manager, and also you "know" you have the right drivers loaded, rigth click on that device, and chose Uninstall.
At next reboot, Windows will detect and reinstall the device, usually with the right driver, solving your problem

Good luck

This usually indicates a problem with a driver. When you say it is ok at first does it actually load in to Windows and then randomly blue screen to this error? If this is the case then there should be an "error code" that looks something like "000000000x##) where the ## is there should be a letter and a number(i.e. 1e) depending on what that number is will help determine which driver is the issue. Once we've determined the driver in question it should be a matter of reinstalling the driver in question and see if this resolves this issue.
Though the computer is a little long in the tooth and if the hardware is failing it may be more cost effective to recycle your computer and purchase a new one.

Newer e-machines use the integrated graphics cards, but do not have expansion slots for anything else.
unless you have an expansion slot for a video card add on.

According to this site:

you should be able to get an AGP 8X. This is an older card, but would be better than the intergrated one.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

it may be a problem of hard drives jumper settings and the CMOS/BIOS setting conflicts!!
first try to go to setup on pressing F2 and load optimal values and restart!!
if this does not help then open the CPU and see the hard drives jumper settings and make it to chip select(CS), and restart!
this mainly will be the problems!

reply and rate!!!

Could be a bad switch or power supply, these are the first things to check besides the power cord and the outlet. You will need a voltmeter to check these things out. If you're not sure how, have someone check it out for you. I'm assuming that the power supply fan isn't coming on, so that makes it or the power switch the main culpret in most cases.

Go into bios and be sure the unit is set to boot to the DC/DVD when you boot up the unit.
clean the disk with windex - it helps to make it easier to read

HDMI? Oh, then you would be talking about a graphics card like this one,


HIS Radeon HD4670 IceQ

1) AGP 8X graphics card
2) Has a VGA, DVI, and HDMI port
3) 1GB of GDDR3 ram memory
4) 128bit interface
5) 320 Stream Processors
6) Core Clock is 750MHz at maximum capability
7) Memory Clock is 1746MHZ at maximum capability

It doesn't matter that your computer system ram memory is DDR Sdram. The GDDR3 graphics ram memory operates independent of the system ram memory.

Are you able to get a screen capture of the websites you are viewing that look messed up?

It could possibly be a malware infection. Try scanning your system with Malware Bytes.

Verify that the keyboard is connected properly to the computer by turning off your computer and then disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard to the computer. Stuck key Ensure that there are no stuck keys on the keyboard. If all keys appear to be ok and you have a standard desktop computer with keyboard, turn the keyboard over and gently hit the back of the keyboard to loosen any dirt or hair that may be stuck in the keyboard. Bad keyboard Try another keyboard on the computer to verify that the keyboard has not gone bad. Bad PS/2 or AT port If all of the above solutions are not able to resolve your issue it is likely that the port on the back of the computer may be bad and the motherboard or I/O board may need to be replaced.
