How to enable my bluetooth on my eMachines E720 series

buy it first , install it then pair it. 2008 LAPTOP came new with VISTA, there is no support for vista. for sure bluetooth card or vista drivers for it. look in the device manager, see the network TAB if Bluetooth is not there then there is no bluetooth card present. no OS told at all. your E720 is not a complete model number . E720-343G25Mi likes this randome one is. the digits on the right tell what options it had new. and to what country , not told.

I counted 13 quick beeps at startup on an emachines E520. what dose that mean ? how do i fix it please ?

Thirteen quick beeps at startup on an eMachines E520 usually indicate a problem with the laptop's RAM (Random Access Memory). This could mean that the RAM is not properly seated in its slot, or it could be a sign of a faulty RAM module.

Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try to resolve this issue:

Turn off the laptop and disconnect it from the power source.
Remove the battery from the laptop.
Locate the RAM compartment on the bottom of the laptop.
Check to make sure that the RAM module is seated properly in its slot. You may need to remove and reinsert the RAM module to ensure a proper connection.
Replace the battery and turn on the laptop.
If the problem persists, try removing the RAM module and testing it in a different laptop or using a different RAM module in the eMachines E520 to determine if the problem is with the RAM module itself or with the laptop's RAM slot.
If none of these steps solve the problem, it may be necessary to contact a computer technician for further assistance..

Hi! I have an emachines laptop E525.I is not going on

moved you out of monitors and into laptops, only forum. emachines full model not old like this example E525-901G1Mi windows 7 loaded day1.
  • the switch is bad Lid close switch
  • set wrong in power settings.
  • or the driver is missing that makes this switch work.
so why not just assign the sleep mode, to auto sleep then on what does the power button do in settings, set to do nothing or set button to only sleep . (3 choices here) or let auto sleep do the work, set. set to say 5min idle. the switch is inside it deep and if you rip it out as you go there most noobs break 2 or 3 FFC cable jacks and now it is bricked and $300 mobo wrecked emachines or junk grade, made by Acer.com owned now and that maker does NOT have service manuals making service a royal Pain. best is work around the problem as I just told how. or ask any shop to fix it. they do know how.!!!
