Emachines et1161-07 freezes up at E logo screen, sometimes with distorted graphics, sometimes not. Eventually, it will let me sign on normally (have also done a restore), and will work for a day or so,...


Your computer may be getting too hot, it needs a service. Clean your computer of dust, use a vacuum cleaner. Air has to circulate through the CPU cooler as well as the Graphics card. Distorted graphics is a sign of overheating. Also be sure to clean the gold fingered contacts on the graphics card. Do not remove the CPU cooler from the CPU unless you apply fresh thermal interface compound.

Contact a computer technician to perform the service if you are unsure.

Take care!

My ET1161 computer won't recognize my monitor how can i find out whats wrong?


1) Please make sure the monitor is on and securely plugged in both the monitor and the back of the computer.
2) make sure that you are using the right input in the back of your computer for your monitor as some computers have an internal video card and external. Please test the monitor on both connections.
3)If possible please test the monitor with a different computer to make sure the monitor itself is functioning.

Is there a system recovery disk for the emachine ET1161-07 desktop pc?


If you bought the computer new and did not receive a recovery disc with it then the recovery software can be reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer.
The steps for re-installation:

  • Restart the computer
  • When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  • When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  • After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

If you bought the computer used try the above method. If that fails then it came with a recovery disc but you didn't get it with the computer. The only thing you can do is contact eMachines support for help or purchase a new copy of Windows and reinstall it with that.
I hope this helps. If not and you need any help with reinstalling a new version of windows please let me know.

I going to buy a emachine et116107 today and i


That particular model has PCI-Express slot for optional upgrades. So if you decide to upgrade the graphics look for anything with a PCI-E label or PCI-Ex16. If you do get a new card make sure to disable the onboard graphics in the system BIOS prior to installing new card. Instructions can be found via google search
