Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Emachine w5243 still shutting down by itself. Sometimes it will shut down during boot up and other times i can get on it and it will stay on for a couple of hours or so.I have ran a virus scan on it and it had 33 viruses and spyware on it and i got rid of those that did'nt help so i got spybot search and destroy and it did'nt find anything. so i formated and installed a new copy of windows vista and that did'nt help.also i have ran disk checkup and it says its fine. Is there somewhere that i can


Answers :

Its not the hard drive because mine was doing the same thing and i took it to the shop and had it checked out.........the motherboard is shot.....it happens alot of times because it gets too hot.......if you will look at the capaciters behind the heat sink fan you will see that they are actually starting to become round on the ends and they should be flat......some shops will tell you that you cannot replace the motherboard unless you want to spend more money that a new tower on it but they are obviously out to make money....i had mine replaced and it was alot cheaper than I was told it would be but of course i took it to a guy that had a shop and didnt want outragious prices for his work.....after buying a motherboard and him doing the labor and re installing all the drivers and my windows vista home premium and also buying another 1Gb of memory to go in it my total cost for it all was 160 bucks..........just to have it checked out at the other place which took 5 days for them to do anything it cost me 67 bucks there.......i would have been better off going to the other guy first

Video/screen issue When I leave my laptop on for any extended time, from 10 minutes or longer, the screen freezes, goes black, and won't respond.
