Cd-rw runs for 5 sec. and stop

Hello, Check your Cd-rw for bent pins or dirty connections. If its not that then you can try the drive in another computer (if you have one) and see if it works. If not then you probley need a new drive. Check www.newegg.com for new drives. Hope that helps.

No multimedia audio controller look for drive

If I understand, it seems that there is some issue with the sound driver, to resolve this, you need to visit your computer's manufacturer website for example, if you are using dell then visit dell.com or if hp then hp.com, then search for support and the click on driver downloads and look for audio drivers, download it and then install it and restart your computer.

Hope this would fix the issue.

Fan runs fast and no bootup

An eMachines desktop or laptop computer fail to boot for a variety of reasons, but a fast, loud fan noise signifies that the system is suffering from overheating.

The problem, and the steps for troubleshooting it, is not unique to the eMachines brand. When the internal temperature of the computer reaches too high a level, the system will shut down automatically to allow the heat to dissipate.

If you attempt to power up too soon, the machine will not boot properly.

To boot, you will need to correct the cause of the overheating, and keep the machine cool.

Blocked Vents

Although different in size, both desktop and laptop computers have air vents to help the fans keep air circulating around the hot internal components.

If these vents become blocked, by pushing a desktop too near a wall or using the laptop on a soft surface, the air supply your internal fans need to cool the system is cut off.

This blockage also traps the heat inside, allowing it to build to dangerous levels.

Keep the air vents on your computer free and clear to allow proper airflow.

Dirty Computer

Airborne particles, such as dust, lint and hair, can gather on the air vents and internal components over the course of time.

This accumulation of dirt not only provides a sort of "insulation" to the electronic components, preventing the heat they generate from dissipating normally, but it also clogs the fan and heat sink to prevent proper function.

Use canned air and damp, soft cloths to thoroughly remove any built-up debris from inside your computer.

Dried Thermal Paste

The heat sink sits atop the CPU chip to help dissipate the heat the component produces. Thermal paste is layered between the CPU and the heat sink to help draw the heat away from the chip for cooling.

Over time, the cooling properties of this paste decreases, and the substance becomes dry and flaky.

You can replace this paste to renew its cooling assistance by removing the old paste remnants with rubbing alcohol and adding a new layer.

Thermal paste is also known as thermal compound or thermal grease, and is available at most electronics stores.

Hot Environment

When examining overheating causes, don't overlook the environment you use your computer in.

External heat sources, such as fireplaces or even rays of direct sunlight, can cause the internal temperatures of your computer to rise.

This causes your internal fan to run harder in an attempt to dissipate the combined heat before temperatures rise too high.

Move your computer away from external heat sources to encourage more effective cooling.

Emachine w3107 starts up just hear fan and nothing comes on the monitor

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

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty

if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty

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

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

make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free

restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

hope this helps

Need video card for w3107 and also hard drive

This machine originally had a 100GB PATA (EIDE) hard drive. It should be able to take any size PATA drive currently available. If you install it and your system happens to have the old 137GB BIOS limitation, update the BIOS. If that doesn't work, you can buy a PCI hard drive card that will allow you to use the entire drive.
This machine has on-board nVidia GeForce 6100 video but it also has a PCI-express X16 slot for a dedicated video card which would improve video and system performance. Any PCI-e card will work but if you don't want to have to get a larger power supply, make to to get one that doesn't require more power than your system can handle.
This machine also comes with only 512MB of DDR PC3200 memory but it can be upgraded to as much as 2GB.

My emachine does not load

more then likely the DVD laser part of the drive has burned out, i have nearly the same model and had to replace mine a couple years ago!! This is a classic situation, the CDROM laser is still functional, but DVD is inop!!! New DVD-RW Drives about $20 on www.NewEgg.com and even cheaper on www.eBay.com for a decent DVD-ROM model!!! Easy fix too, just make sure you get the IDE style, or make even faster with SATA, if you have a SATA available on your system!!

I highly doubt anyone here will give you their key. If you want to use word, their is a free office suite known as Open Office. If you want the software, i suggest buying it, or asking a friend or family member.

My sound was working fine

It could be feedback from your microphone. Place them further apart and see if that makes a difference. Otherwise, the sound card might be bad.
