Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Emachines T3882 desktop w/one cd-dvd combo drive[no floppy]

\015 First a 'problem detected HDD, consult owner's manual' message.Still powers up but gives same message. I pulled HDD & placed in other PC, it read fine as slave drive. I replaced w/new drive & CD Restore discs, didn't fix. I obtained new Windows xp CD, didn't fix. I did set bios to boot off optical drive. I also tried other CD drive & still no fix.It still gives same message, will not accept other commands. Emachines.com=no support. Place Restore Cd in drive & boot up, I say doesn't work, they say sorry.\015

Answers :

Hi, now the screen is blank[black]with a blinking cursor and will not accept any commands. No words or error messages, only a blinking cursor. I tried different CD's; Window XP, Hiren's, Maxtor MaxBlast, Ultimate Cd, and it stays on the blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner, that's all. I entered the Bios to make sure the new HD was recognized, I set it to boot from the CD drive. So, the new drive is wiped and error tested, changed IDE cable, set jumper, Please advise.
Download the drive test for the hard drive. Put the drive in your other computer and run the test. If it test good on simple test do the long test. IF IT COMES OUT FINE, Run the Zero program and then try to install the O.S. Check your BIOS settings and make sure everything is set right. You are on the right track. You just did not know how to test the drive. If it is a Toshiba you will not find a hard drive test. You might be able to use the Maxtor or Seagate drive test. Use the windows version if you can. If you can't do any of the test, right click on the drive and check for errors.
