20 Most Recent E-Machines eMonster 550 PC Desktop Questions & Answers


Some older computers, like mine, have a maximum memory they can handle. This one happens to be 1 gig, but yours may be less. Do you have an older computer? Yup, you do. As seen here, the maximum supported ram is 256. I'm sorry. Please rate.

Please double check, you should have two cables out of the monitor and connected.
1. The power cable to your UPS/ AC switch. 2. display cable connected to the CPU(main box).
Based on the information you gave one or both of these cables are not connected/switched on.
Thanks.

while booting into the Operating system try pressing F8. It will take you to the os menu and select VGA loging in mode in that. Later after entering the operating system reduce your monitor resolution say 800 * 600 it should fix the problem.

to boot a cd then you must have the bios set to allow it, or tap f12 immediately to intercept boot menu and choose cd. sounds like your drive has a few bad disk sectors.

firstly lets think why a Working pc would no longer BOOT. The boot process then. a pc starts the bios which POST's. this results in ONE BEEP which might be followed by messages(if you get several beeps then they are like morse code long/short and count out an error code). when you get your ONE BEEP the pc is working. when it then HANGS(appears to do nothing) its usually because of either a) the cd drive is duff so disconnect its cables. b) the hard drive is duff so disconnect its cables c) the hard drive hasnt quite died yet but has some very slow sectors and is making the Clackety Clack of the heads recalibrating every few seconds. d) there could be a a gpu card bios glitch and your pc is running but you just have a blank screen. some hints then 1) never start removing parts as that corrupts the CMOS(the battery backed up configuration for your BIOS) so you may need to clear your cmos. 2) never play with the idea of changing ram sticks as people usually end up putting them in any old slot(which may result in a non working pc). make sure a PAIR is fitted in slots 0/2 and a separate matching pair in 1/3 slots not in slots 0/1 which is two half pairs. Other factors. 1) a short circuit. your PSU has built in protection, if the psu fan(inside case of the psu) turns and kicks back and immediately stops you have a short circuit and its cuts the power to avoid a fire/meltdown, which could be caused by high wattage gpu(>60 watts) without its extra power cables fitted or wrongly connected front usb cables or removing a mainboard and fitting it into a new box where the board has its support posts NOT lined up with the holes fro the screws so the post is touching underside of the board circuits. hope some of that helps.

Download a Linux distro to a flash drive or DVD and see how well it runs off that. There's HDD utilities like SuperGrubDisk that can diagnose things.

Unfortunately, without a specific model number for your monitor, this may vary from the manual I am referencing. Just the same, I should say the link should at least have enough similarities to get you out of a scenario mode, and into the custom configurations (that I am assuming you are after).

The steps begin on the bottom of page 5.

If you are using a similar model, clicking on the menu button will bring you in the OSD menu where you can customize the brightness, contrast, etc. Any changes will become a "custom" mode that will effectively take you out of anyone of the scenario modes. I have seen monitors that do not allow much customization (if any) outside of the scenario modes. You may find specifics if you search the monitor model number itself. If you post that information in the comments I can help you find info more specific to your display.

Knowing the beep pattern will help diagnose the issue. Power on the computer again and listen for long beeps and/or short beeps. There are other possibilities, but if you just cleaned out the computer, I suspect you might have dislodged a memory stick. Make sure they are seated completely and the white tabs are locked securely in place. The beep code you hear will ultimately help determine where the failure is happening.

try booting to safe mode. by using f8

if that works, try a system restore to a previous date.

if that does not help, then it must be a windows corruption and parallel install or repair install will be needed, it can also be fixed by manual troubleshooting and repairing the files.

it depends if it a pc or laptop you can HBCD 15 OR HIGHER TO CLEAR THE PASSWORD. IF IT IS A CMOS PASSWORD YOU CAN TRY TO CLEAR IT BY TAKING OUT THE CMOS BATTERY AFTER YOU UNPLUG THE COMPUTER OR BY USING THE JUMPER TO CLEAR IT (SOME, BUT NOT ALL).
