Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

EMachine W3107 will not boot, no display.

\015 Hello,I was given an eMachine W3107 recently because the owner could not get it to boot at all. I understand that eMachine's are horrible computers yet I would like to get this one up and running in order to use it for small tasks.Here's the issue. When the computer is turned on, I get both fans going and one orange, short light will blink on the outside case under the power button. The monitor remains blank at all times except to tell me there is no signal from the computer to the monitor.Here's what I've done. I have used 3 different monitors, all with the same result. I also put the cpu in a different computer and it booted up fine. In addition, I tried checking the RAM slots, dusted them and checked them for obvious defects, then placed them right back where they were. I checked each capacitator and none of them are swollen or corroded. In summary, the monitor works, the cpu works, and the motherboard isn't showing obvious signs that it has malfunctioned, so far that I know. I have very little experience with computer hardware and I hope that I am missing something silly. By the way, there are no beeps when I turn the computer on. I realize that I'm working on an older, bottom line computer. The most I am will to do with this machine is to replace the original mobo with an alternative mobo NOT from eMachines. I have an original copy of Windows XP Home that I can use in order to get around that eMachine issue where the new mobo is detected as if it's a new computer and doesn't boot.If anyone can help me out, please do. If you need more information, let me know.\015

I have a eMachine with XP and tried to use restore disks. The first disk started working then got an error message about output to A:/Ghosterr. I called the tech support # and was told it was out of warranty, that my disks were damaged and I couldn't buy new ones. Said I had to find local technician to work on it. Does this sound correct? Reading here it sounds like I can try that F8 trick above to restore?


I am not sure what you mean by the F8 Trick. If you mean hitting F8 (or F5) at boot up time, that will get you to a boot menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode with network, without network, and a few other options, then yes, that is the t ... E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
