20 Most Recent E-Machines T6528 PC Desktop Questions & Answers

Suggest you remove the Ram Memory modules, ('Stick'), and clean the gold plated contact pins. Then reinstall.

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes. The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.
2 short beeps indicate a memory problem.

The eMachines T6528 uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
(Micro Star International)
Otherwise known as the MSI K8NGM2-FID /IL / L,


Uses DDR Sdram ram memory.

(Either 266MegaHertz, 333MHz, or 400MHz. Which is
PC-2100, PC-2700, and PC3200; respectively)


Handle the Ram Memory by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the ram memory module, Except the gold plated contact pins at the Bottom.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Use a pencil eraser to clean the gold plated contact pins.

If you are using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser; refrain from letting the metal band touch, the gold plated contact pins.

Rub across all contact pins, (BOTH sides), and up, and down on them. You don't have to use too much pressure.
Once finished use air to remove the eraser dust.

You can use a can of compressed air for computers, if available; or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.
(Humans can deliver up to 20 pounds of air pressure)


BEFORE you reach inside your computer, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static.

Computer ON a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

Use a can, or two of compressed air for computers. You may wish to wear a dust mask also.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Enter to your BIOS Setup, check hard drive is detected or not , check for Booting Device Priorities and set First boot device as Your Hard Drive.

See if your rams are inserted properly.

If there was a video error generally you would get beeps that are similar to removing the memory.
when this happens you are looking at a failed CPU or Motherboard. For the system to get to the POST it has to get past the CPU hence you have no beeps.

First thing would be to clear the bios and cmos. use the jumper and remove the battery.
If clearing does not work then you would remove the cpu, turn the system on, then off. then reseat the cpu and try it again (remember heatsink as well never turn a system on without the heatsink on it)

I.Install the sound driver .

E-Machines T6528... | Answered on Feb 09, 2011

Several Possible Reasons.
1.) Hard Drive related
Use the clean up function to get rid of all the cookies and other internet "trash" that has accumulated over time.
Then defragment the hard drive by going to My Computer > C Drive> (right mouse click) >Properties and Tools, select defragment
Then as before and use tools to check for errors (do not bother with a surface scan.. just yet)

2.) Dead and redundant programmes
If you have uninstalled or tried to uninstall any programmes, they may have left debris behind. Download REVO UNINSTALLER and use this to do a proper clean up (its free)

3.) Disc Space
Check the disc space remaining, if below 2 GB, you will be encountering issues with Windows Swap file (the bit of the hard drive windows likes to use to chuck data about in when it is executing commands). the bigger the swap file , the faster windows can do this.

4.) Hard drive damage
Download a programme called HDD Tune (free again), run it and check for any bad sectors and any RSC errors (shown in red or yellow highlights), if you encounter these, get your data of asap and buy a new HDD

5.) Virus:
If after all that, yiu still have problems, download a copy of DRWEB (yes.. that too is free), run it and even if reporting a clean HDD, run the C:/... path to make double sure

hello if the monitor wanted a fuse .. then it wont turn on.. which means its getting power !!!
you problem is the pc ,or monitor cable fell out at the back of pc, or you may have a defective memory stick ,that if the pc is getting power and you are seeing light on the pc.. if the pc is dead nothing lighting.. no beeps, not even the optical not opening then you have a power supply problem,
if u had a surge be it went dead try this, unplug system for 5 mins, the plug it back in, try powering on.. if still nothing , most likely , memory,video card or power supply is defective, but i think. its your memory if getting power

1) So you tested the monitor on a working computer? Reason I ask, is that you will be testing the monitor cable also.

If it is a monitor with a detachable monitor cable, suggest you test the cable also.

2) Each graphics (Video) adapter card has it's own specific driver.
The driver should be installed Before, the graphics card is installed.

Otherwise Windows will 'break it's neck', to find a compatible driver, from it's thousands of generic drivers.
Won't do. You will get a driver conflict.

Windows: 'Which driver do I use? These or THESE?"

Kinda' hard to do, since you can't see graphics on the monitor.

I would like to suggest you diagnose the Power Supply to start with. (After checking the monitor cable)

It may seem that the Power Supply is okay, but it could have a weak Voltage power rail.

Enough power to light LED lights, and spin fan's, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL the LED's use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.
(Lower for older Processors)

The eMachines T6528 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 3500+, processor, that fits in a Socket 939 processor socket,

1) eMachines Support > T6528 > Specifications,


2) Information on the AMD Athlon 64 3500+,


Can use up to 67 Watts, or up to 89 Watts. Depends on what Core it is.
(Clawhammer Core, Newcastle Core, Winchester Core, Venice Core, Manchester Core, or San Diego Core)

(Also uses an MSI K8NGM-L motherboard. Below for specifications only,

http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130041 )

A) Not to down eMachines, (I have an old T1090 in my shop that works great), but they are budget computers, and use budget parts.
One being the generic Power Supply that is used.

B) The computer could be dirty inside, as well as inside the Power Supply.

The cooling components for the SMPS, (Switched-Mode Power Supply,) are it's Fan, and Heatsink's used inside.

Once a layer of 'Gunk' covers these cooling components, the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

Heat = Wasted Energy

The more heat, the more the Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power.
Eventually hardware components inside the Power Supply fail, and the Power Supply is toast.

You can test the Power Supply voltages.
You can use a multimeter if available, or an economical unit can be purchased for around $5 to $12, that will suffice for testing.

You can also use a power supply tester.
One example:


Voltages produced by the SMPS used in a T6528 are,
A) 3.3 Volts (DC)
B) 5 Volts (DC)
C) 12 Volts (DC)

Testing should be done on the 12 Volt power rail.
11 to 13 Volts indicates a good Power Supply.
Less than 11 Volts means it's time to replace.

Orange wires are 3.3 Volts
Red wires are 5 Volts
Yellow wires are 12 Volts.

All the color coded Voltage wires, lead back to one individual power rail, for each Voltage produced by the Power Supply.

You can test any Yellow wire to test the 12 Volt power rail.

With a multimeter, the Positive (Red) probe lead connects to the power wire to be tested.

The Negative (Black) lead connects to ANY Ground wire.

ALL Black wires are Ground wires.
They all go back to one central Ground source inside the Power Supply.

[Power Supply unplugged from power before attaching probe leads. After connecting, the power supply is plugged back into power, and the Power On button is pushed ]

(Two C cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

check your PC if it can accommodate sata and if the board supports 3gb/sec on the bios. if not check for possible firmware upgrade to support it.

Is the new video card compatible with your motherboard?If it is , can you try connecting your monitor VGA Cable from your video card properly?

And also if you are using a PCI Video Card you should try to install it to another slot if theres an instance that a PCI Slot doesnt work.

E-Machines T6528... | Answered on Jan 07, 2010

First you need to make sure that motherboard has a PCI-Express slot

If it has that then you will be able to upgrade to any card you want willing your power supply has enough wattage to fuel the card

Most higher end video cards need 450W power supply's to operate without problems

If you meet both of those requirements then your good to go :)

Excelent description thanx. I assume you have bought a new PC. If so simply remove old HDD and plug it into the DVD cable on the new PC and boot up. It should read the old HDD, simply "copy" pics to new HDD.

DO NOT "MOVE" pics or will corrupt drive futher.

Reformat oldd HDD and repload Windows, all good again.
