You can replace it with a larger one, just make sure you buy the proper hard drive. If its and IDE hard drive, buy and IDE hard drive, if its an SATA Hard drive, buy an SATA Hard drive. also make sure after you install the new hard drive that you use the operating system cd to format the drive and to install the operating system.

When I switch on the device I now hear a clicking sound coming from inside


A clicking noise from a hard drive indicates a faulty hard drive, it is known as the Click of Death.
If you need data off this faulty hard drive, there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Wont boot and clicking noice


A clicking noise usually indicates a bad hard drive. Any eMachine is now very old (in computer years), with an obsolete operating system.

You should consider replacing rather than repairing.

Emachines E527 wont boot up


restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer


you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell you if and what file has been corrupted or missing then you will know if its a hardware issue


then select restart if the problem still persists f8 back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode


click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell

you what has occurred and the time it occurred
you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time click start all programs

accessories system tools you should see your system restore option if it is a hardware issue the system restore might not work


if the system restore fails


test your PSU 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 or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

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 a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

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 the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
computers need data and power to travel through every working device and 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 power connection or faulty fan lead can cause you problems

a 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
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope this helps

Seagate's DiscWizard, Extended Capacity Manager didn't recognize a hard disc with MBR partition style larger than 2TB when trying to maximize the capacity of the 3TB Seagate ST32000641AS drive...


Seagate Extended Capacity Manager

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager lets your operating system support large size discs with MBR partition style, so then you are able to use the space beyond 2 TB: this free space will be recognized as a separate disc, and will be accessible by your operating systems and applications as if it was a regular physical hard disc.

Seagate Extended Capacity Manager wizard will display all hard discs larger than 2 TB (unallocated or with MBR partition style). You can see, which disc space is recognized and allocated by Windows - this space is called Native Capacity in the wizard.

The space beyond 2 TB is displayed as Extended Capacity Zone. You can enable Extended Capacity Discs, and once it is done, this space will be visible by the operating system and ready for disc management operations.

Click Allocate space to see the possible disc space allocation in the next step.

After clicking Apply changes now button, the Extended Capacity Discs will be emulated on your physical disc. In case your physical disc is larger than 4 TB and the host operating system does not support a GPT partition layout, there will be several Extended Capacity Discs.

Note these Extended Capacity Discs are not bootable, and most properties will be the same as a physical disc's.

After allocating the space, you may temporary switch off Extended Capacity Discs by clicking the corresponding option. This will make Extended Capacity Discs invisible for Windows Disc Management tools, though the disc space will remain allocated.

To disable Extended Capacity Discs, click Remove partitions from Extended Capacity Zone and then click Apply changes now button in the next step: these discs will be removed from your system, and as a result - the disc space beyond 2 TB will become inaccessible

I have aemachine w4620 with 80g hard drive and 1g memory, can i upgrade my hard driveand will it takemore memory?


Max memory is 2GB. The stock hard drive is an 80GB ATA/IDE type, 4200rpm - larger ones are available in 100G, 120G, 160G, 320G, and .. I believe 500G. So the answer is: both can be upgraded or, more precisely, replaced with higher capacities.

Emachine cant find operating system


Hello,

If it doesn't show a HD in bios, that means that either the HD isn't connected properly ie you have 2 devices set as slave or master on same ide cable and it cant detect the HD. Try temporarily disconnecting the CDroms or other devices that may be conflicting and see if that helps.

Hope that helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

EMachines T1840 mother board crash


You need to get hold of a boot CD - BartPE is great for this. Put the hard drive in another computer, and you'll find it more than likely blue screens, as the Drive Controller Drivers don't match the motherboard. Run a program called FIX-IDE, reboot, and it should at least boot. You might find that all sorts of other bits don't work though, but your apps should. Download the drivers for the new board and you should be off and away.
