Q: Unknowing victim of emachine, board replacement, socket 754/478

Hello all , I'm new here , almost as new at poking around inside my computer , at this point its nothing lost nothing gained ..... I have read several hundred posts of others who also fell victim to these substandard machines .. An e machines label wont be on my desktop again ... even if its case is blotted out with whiteout ......... Anyway enough rant , I'm here for your help .. I have an model T6420 ... amd athlon .. failed power supply that took the motherboard with it , originally a 2.2 - 64 bit .... 1600Mhz ... 1gb (512x2) machine , msi 7207 MotherBoard ...... I have looked at options , and due to purpose or use of it I remain torn as to the best way to replace it.... seems Cputopia com , On Sale , has a motherboard , ( basic single core board , processor and processor fan for a bit over a hundred dollars , dependent on options selected .. they also have a box (case) , processor , board and power supply for around 200 + dependent upon how equipped.... while the power supply upgrade , is $14 at one page its $19 at another , No big deal about that ... Anyway .. my other option is to get a sole independent , board with the same socket as my oem processor /motherboard and reuse my Atlon Processor - HD - DVD-Cd ...and , new windows7.program . as such , Now the crux of the problem is... I have seen T6420"s listed here and elsewhere , as , having come from the factory equipped as ... socket and processor .. 754 ... as well as 478 ... How do I know or how can I tell .... which one I have ... I need to compare performance of the T6420 - socket? 754/478 ?.... to the Sempron3000 .. "its been suggested this Sempron also comes in a variety of speeds , and cores , some better , some worse than the Atlon , it is dependent on the encoded processor suffix) " .. No description of such , is available with the advertised , replacement board and case . at cputopia ... and I certainly don't ... want to go down or backward in speed or performance ...... There are no performance specs advertised with this ( Cputopia com ) replacement board , case ,cpu fan or other optional parts available .either .... essentially no sepec no matter what I buy of the sempron ...... All replys will be appreciated .... my budget doesnt give me room for errors ... do it once and do it right the first time ... wish I had been this cautious when I bought the emachine , but budget was not as bad as now ... come Halloween I'm gonna put lipstick on it put it outside , and call it a pig ...with a big emachine billboard ....................... Regards to all here , Leo

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

A: Unknowing victim of emachine, board replacement, socket 754/478

Dude, get a grip. I know less about computers now than before I read your post.

I thought that socket 478 was Intel (Pentium Celeron), now I come to find out that it's AMD.

An AMD Sempron 3000 only comes in one speed, if it's another speed, then it has a different number.

All of the s*** you mention is beyond obsolete, so maybe it's time for a whole 'nuther computer. Please, I heartily suggest that you avoid attempting to build a machine, at least in your current state of mind.

I don't think that any of us here are really equipped to deal with the anxiety, angst, or incoherent and rambling thought patterns you have exhibited thus far, let alone what you're trying to pass off as sentence structure.

BTW, my Emachines T-5026 just reached its 5th birthday. If you'd like to check in and wish it many happy returns, (pun not intended), here's the link; http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic143315.html

I would argue that it is not really possible to be an "unknowing victim" of Emachines.

You bought it because it was cheap, cheap s*** breaks. So where's the surprise, the mystery, or the unpredictability?

I have an Emachine T-3092 and need to replace mother board and CPU potentially due to a failure. Have not replace one before. Need to know suggested motherboard as I could not find it on E-Machine website. Thanks.

A:Emachine T3092 Mother Board Replacement

You will most likely end up replacing everything except the case. Any ATX or mini-ATX board should fit. How many PCI slots do you have now? 3? The power supply should be changed while your at it... Just deside what processor and memory you want to use, and select a motherboard that will run it.

My Yoga S1 has contradictory, intermittent power issues that I'm trying to chase down. Culprits are bad power bric/cord/plug or power socket on mother board or power board that feeds into power button/led on. One day it blacked out and wouldn't restart to hard drive or windows stage. I did get an error code which I can't remember 5100 or 5500 poss?, that seemed to indicate the power board or ribbons to that needed replacement or re-attachment. So fiddled with it and it did fire up in windows all ok. Then ran out of power and died again. power button wouldn't light up. plugging in power unit did light up led as getting charge. Left it overnight and then it miraculously charged up. pushed power button light up twice then nothing. took out power board/detached ribbon, then it fired up to windows, fixed some hd errors and has been restarting without problems. Except now there is no plug showing on battery icon when plugged in. So not recharging but I'm sure the battery is good. And logically, the power brick and plug must be feeding electricity into laptop to get it to recharge enough to start up. So power socket and plug may be suspect with intermittent contact problems. Or the power board somehow is involved in this? I've ordered a new powerboard as easy screw in and cheap. My question about powerboard is does this control ability of plug to charge battery? power brick with new plug is next order from ebay. but the power socket, which see...

If so, I'd like to know what you use and how you like it. I've just purchased a Sapphire X1900XTX and will need a new motherboard but I want to keep the Athlon 64 3200+ that I'm running (I know the arguments to go with 939, but right now, this is what I'm going with).

I've looked at Asus, Abit and Biostar....leaning toward the first two.

Thanks in advance.

Can't wait any longer as I've promised my old Abit NF7-S v2.0 board and overclocked 2100+ Tbred to someone at work for a reasonable price.

I'll probably change system again within a year (which this should last me) when BTX, DDR2 and PCI-e have matured.

Anyway the initial benchies I've seen with the 939 in single channel mode are quite on par with the larger cache 754 benchies.

Therefore I think I'm gonna get one of the following: (unless someone can suggest the best 754 board to get at the moment)

Abit KV8-Max 3
Asus K8VSE Deluxe
Epox 8HDA3+
Gigabyte GA-K8NNXP

Recommendations please

A:Can't wait for 939, getting a socket 754 board. Which one???

That is quite odd as there is no Socket-939 Athlon64 with a SingleChannel memory controller scheduled ( & I've looked at the latest roadmaps ).

All Socket-939 chips will have a DualChannel memory controller & the only difference will be the L2 cache ( 512 for Athlon64 & 1MB for Athlon64-FX ) & so far the Athlon64-FX chips do not have a locked multiplier unlike the Athlon64.

If you're not too busy, have a read :

Generation Change: Eight Motherboards For The Athlon 64 @ Tomshardware

Socket754 Platform: 13 Mainboards Roundup @ Xbitlabs

If I should choose fro the boards you listed I would go for the Asus board ( but that's just me ). It's just a shame it doesn't have Gigabit ethernet which could certainly become very usefull in about a year.

Hello all,

I have about 5 choices for motherboards here and all of them are within my budget. But all these mobos seem to have fairly the same reviews. So can you please help me decide? BTW I do plan to overclock my system.

- Gigabyte GA P55MUD3
- ASUS P7P55 D
- Intel DP55KG
- MSI P55 GD65
- Gigabyte GA P55M UD2


A:The Best LGA 1156 Socket board

Probably the MSI would offer the best all round feature set. All would offer basically the same stock performance.
I'm personally not a great fan of MSI, but that's because of personal experience with their P35/P45/680i and 780i boards. Haven't worked with a P55 based board as yet (too expensive in this part of the world) so as with the other choices I would seek out customer reviews as a basis for comparison in addition to published spec sheets and reviews.

Hi all,

I want to buy an AMD Socket A MSI 6570E motherboard, so I downloaded the manual.

It has a ?Live BIOS Update? feature that accesses the web, but the manual doesn?t say if it updates the BIOS while you are online. Does anyone know if the BIOS is updated so that you don?t have to use the boot floppy disk method?

There is also an optional USB bracket called D-Bracket that has four LEDs that is used to diagnose system faults. The manual doesn?t say how it works. Do you install software that allows you to use it for diagnostics?

There is also a feature called ?Cooler XP? that makes the AMD Athlon processor run cooler. Again, the manual doesn?t say how this is accessed. Is it in the BIOS, or does it show in say the Windows Control Panel?



A:Socket A m/board questions

my gigabyte board has a live bios update feature and it updates the bios while you are on line. then it reboots your computer.

dell computers use the diagnostic lights feature I kind of liked it. with dell there is no software included to runthe feature just an explanation of what the lights being on or off mean.

I would hope that the cooler Xp feature would be accessible fromt he control panel the usual method of "cooling" the cpu is to throttle it down in speed which is why I dont care for the feature.
hopefully it is an optional feature that you can chose not to intialize.

My computer is no longer able to read all the RAM I have installed. I currently have 12GB's installed, but only 8GB is "usable." I've swapped out sticks, reseated the CPU, and checked the BIOS. The BIOS is only reading 8GB's. Taking another look at the CPU socket, I noticed a pin was not in place.

I called up EVGA and the Rep told me the RMA dept would have to look at it and depending on the extent of the damage they may have to charge me to fix it. Basically one pin looks out of place. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this, especially with EVGA. Do you guys think they'll charge me? I'd hate to send it off for two weeks just to get charged, especially considering it still works fine, just can't read more than 8GB's of memory. And if they do charge, would anyone know about how much it would be?

I am trying to help my friend get his Emachine back up and going and I'm running into a little snag. When we turn it on, it has power and such but no display. I couldn't seem to locate any jumpers to disable the onboard video and when I put a known, working video card into it, it doesn't even act like its there. I was wondering if anyone knew of a non-bios way to disable the onboard video or if maybe it's something else altogether that I should be looking at. Here are the specs on the machine:

CPU: AMD Sempron™ 3300+ Processor (64-bit)1
(2GHz, 1600MHz System Bus, 128KB L2 cache)
Operating System: Genuine Microsoft® Windows® XP Home (SP2)1
Chipset: NVIDIA® nForce™® 410
Memory: 256MB DDR (1 × 256MB), 400MHz (PC3200)
Hard Drive: 100GB (7200rpm, 2MB cache)32
Optical Drive: 48x CD-RW/DVD combo drive
Media Reader: 8-in-1 digital media manager (Secure Digital™ (SD), smart media, micro drive, memory stick, memory stick pro, compact flash, mulitimedia card, USB 2.0)
Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® 6100 GPU
up to 128MB of shared video memory
PCI-Express® (PCI-E x16) slot available
Sound: 6-channel (5.1) AC'97 audio

Thanks in advance for your help.

A:Disabling On Board Video/Emachine T3304

I do not believe that you will find a "non BIOS" way to avoid the onboard video. If the MB/BIOS is set up to automatically defer to the add on card then it would have done so. Assuming that everything is working as it should, you likely will have to boot to BIOS, make the change, save/exit and reboot.

i dont expect as many responses here as i will hopefully get on my previous post, but the deal is i'm shopping for a new comp and the combo deal
ends in 2 hours.

going on the assumption that i want a 754 PC, does anyone know of any reason to stay away from this board? keep in mind that i am using this system primarily for gaming.

from what i have been able to find, i know this:
-the board is a little outdated
-it is picky when it comes to RAM
-ASUS has replaced it with the K8V-X SE (i dont know the reasons for this)

i consider myself kinda knowledgable about computers (at least i've built every one i've owned) however i'm not 100% familiar with all the specs and details and how one core differers from another. when 2 things seem pretty similar to me, i usually go by price - but because this board is a little old i'm kind of uneasy about making this decision.

so i guess respond if you can think of any reason i shouldnt buy this board tonight (assuming i make the decision to go with a 754 socket computer...if you wanna help with this choice, check the post i put up a few minutes ago)

hello to all. i read the above regarding emachines PSU and mobo and will take immediate action. first tho, my 160 GB WD 5400rpm HD is bad. the machine lets me know upon start up stating S.M.A.R.T. detected something...hard drive failure eminent. i also placed the drive into another comp as slave and the working comp recognized it as a bad drive. so my questions are:
1.do i need to replace the HD with another 160GB drive? i would be using the restore cd's provided by emachines
2.is there a mobo out there that can be simply dropped in to replace a bad one?
3.does the rpm speed make a difference when replacing HD?

here are some of the specs directly from emachines website:
Chassis: Chassis,Nexgen 3 MAIN FRAME
Memory: MEM, DDR-RAM 512MB (Max. 2GB)
CPU: CPU,ATHLON XP 3000 462P 333FSB 512K
FDD Model: FDD, D353M3D

2: is the existing board failing? If you replace it with a different make, type or model your restore CD will not work properly.

Hello everyone,
Found this subject on the emachine motherboaerd on a search. Have a T2245 that the motherboard has gone bad. It's the imperail GL VE 20021218 mobo just wanting to know what would be the good replacement mobo would be for that. Any suggestions?

A:Emachine motherboard replacement

Remember that the board you use must accept the CPU of the one in your failed eMachine board.
The hard drive is likely good, but the Windows on it will detect that the motherboard has changed, and then it will shut down. Sometimes the eMachines recovery disk will work if you run it in repair mode, or if you run a full new install, but usually not on that T2245 model. It is designed to seek out the code on the eeprom on the motherboard to verify that it is allowed to run a repair or install on the new equipment. So you may have to buy a new copy of Windows XP. Your memory will be good, but the power supply will not be good, or in the rare case when it is good, it may not have enough power for the new motherboard.
So expect to buy a new motherboard, a new CPU heatsink and fan, thermal paste, and a windows disk.
Or just buy a decent rebuilt Dell or HP or Gateway, and an external USB enclosure so you can rescue the data on the old eMachines drive and move it to the new or used drive. It will cost you less than the replacement board, power supply, and Windows.

bending pins. I am awaiting shipment of a Socket 939 AMD 64 4000 CPU from Newegg. I have had a problem in the past with pulling the CPU heat sink off the CPU on this particular motherboard. You cannot release the CPU clamp to release the CPU without taking off the heat sink. And because of the larger contact area between CPU and heat sink, it is impossible for me to pull the CPU fan without pulling the CPU, and thats with the clamp untouched. Unfortunately, this always results in bent CPU pins. Although I am replacing the CPU, I would like to keep the old 3200 functional for my grandson's machine. Any suggestions on how to remove the CPU fan without removing the CPU and the resultant bent CPU pins? Thanks in advance for your advice and assistance.

Hello, I have a ssd I have installed in this board which is the only, drive and also with OS. I was wondering if it makes any difference which sata2 socket I use sata2 0/1/2/3/4? I have it set to AHCI in bios already. I assume I should not, use the Gsata sockets? The location in hardware devices shows the drive to be located at location 0. I assume this means channel 0 since it shows channel 0 and channel 1 in hardware devices? Is that fine or should it be on channel 1 or, makes no difference? Thanks!

A:which sata2 socket to connect a ssd to on GigaByte p55m-ud2 board

Primary drive should always go in the lowest numbered sata port, in your case 0, TBH in your situation where you only have one drive it wont make much difference but if for example you had multiple drives and you plugged a secondary hdd into a lower numbered port than your OS hdd then when you installed windows all your boot info would be put on the secondary drive which is not a good practice and will lead to issues if you ever needed to change or remove the 2nd drive as it would leave the system unbbotable and in need of startup repair

The only time you would use a sata that is not controlled by the onboard chipset IMO would be if your board only had sata 2 (3gbps) and you had a 3rd party controller (gsata) adding sata 3 (6gbps) and you were adding a sata 3 drive

A handicapped friend of ours has an emachine W3503 with a bad motherboard. We are trying to help him get his computer back up and running as inexpensively as possible since he is living on a very low fixed income. Can this be replaced, and if so, what would I order?
Thank you

A:Emachine W3503 replacement motherboard?

Probably Not the Answer You Were Hoping For.......

The problem with replacing the motherboard in an Emachine is the extravagant price they will charge you. Also, the power supply is most probably also bad, either by virtue of it killing the board, or being killed by it. I absolutely do not recommend buying a board off Ebay, that's sort of asking to be ripped off.

Here's the specs on your machine http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=W Series&model=W3503

That's pretty much bad news as well, since the Emachine in question has DDR type memory, which would likely have to be replaced with any board you might find today.

The standard treatment for this is to buy a different aftermarket board, and a decent PSU. However, the copy of Windows that came with the machine dies with the board, and would have to be purchased also.

This is representative of a type of board that would fit your chassis; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...rder=BESTMATCH&Description=Intel+G31+&x=0&y=0 and allow you to use your CPU. These boards are about 50 bucks. A replacement Emachine board might be on the order of up to 200 dollars. The upgrade parts I mentioned can be had for about 300 dollars, including the copy of Windows. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116752 This is the OEM version, and you would need to order it with the parts.

My son has an emachines T4697. The power supply destroyed his motherboard. We replaced the power supply but now have to replace the motherboard. The problem is, he is a musician and has his music stored on the hard drive. He has not backed up for a long time so much of his music would be lost.

We need to replace the motherboard but not reformat the hard drive. The old motherboard is an FIC VG33 that uses intel 845GE chipset.

Emachines and Tiger Direct sell the replacement but it comes with a new power supply included and they want over $300.

Can I replace it with another motherboard as long as it uses the same chipset? Will we be able to reload windows using the disks that came with the emachines or will we have to buy a copy of XP?

A:Emachine T4697 motherboard replacement

The motherboard just failed... it was not destroyed by the power supply, but likely the other way round... the failed motherboard created a condition that destroyed the power supply.

The problem you will have is that although the hard drive is good, Windows will detect the change in hardware and will not load.
The 845GE is a good board, but the EEPROM is not tattooed to allow the eMachines recovery disc to work.

The best thing to do is get a decent WXPP system, then use the current eMachines drive as a slave to rescue the data.
If you wish to know more, I can send more details.
Otherwise, if eMachines still has the motherboard, that replacement will cost you $159.95 and will enable all to be restored. A decent power supply will cost significantly less. Measure your current failed power supply in millimeters, then find a new one the same size. Antec makes one that fits, as does Sparkle... both are excellent. There many be many others.
There are other ways to save a few dollars.

I have an inquiry in hopes of getting a reply soon.

Here is my first post and situation at hand.

I have a similar situation as cowboy posted on 7-28-06 and 7-29-06.

I have a emachine T2385 and one day attempting to boot-up it wouldn't.
I assumed the PSU had went bad, so I ordered another one. After installing the new PSU the system wouldn't boot. The power supply works, but no power to the motherboard. I noticed the LED light was amber in color and just flashing. I switched out a PSU from a good working emachine of same model (TS2385) with same results. I should have done that first before purchasing the PSU. You live and learn, huh?

I visited the emachine site to check out if any replacment motherboard's were available, no mobo's currently available, DANG! I called PARTS, and was told by a customer service person there are currently no replacment motherboards available for TS2385's, and I might as well throw it out, and buy a new PC.

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can purchase a generic or replacment motherboard compatible for a emachine TS2385? Also, will need a compatible chipset as well.


A:Replacement Motherboard for emachine TS2385

because emachines is an OEM build, there is no guarantee that standard parts will fit or work properly. you can always try, though. there are still plenty of socket 478 boards out there that will aork with your processor. i recommend one of the asus p4p800 series motherboards, you'll probably have to use a micro ATX board to fit your case.

I have a laptop that I am trying to replace the cpu. The design of this socket has no lever to lock the cpu in place.It is very difficult to slide the cpu towards the lock position after it is in the socket and I have not been able to do it yet.Does anybody have a workaround for this as I do not want to exert too much force on the cpu and socket and damage something.

Hi Guys,
The audio / headphone jack on my Dell 17R- 5720 has broken and the extra movement in the port causes the audio to cut in and out.
Does anyone know the part number for this specific socket or audio board?

Hi Speedsurfer,
The headphone / Mic jack is on the motherboard. If you want to replace the jack then you need to replace the complete motherboard.
Depending on your current system configuration and OS installed, the part number can be provided.

Yeah you can run it. Just order the card you need, ie PCIE or AGP. I figure you need an AGP card but I ain't sure. Make sure your PSU is up to the task also.

A:Emachine T2865 Motherboard Replacement Question.

Any motherboard you get will be compatible because you might have to start fresh using only the computer's case. You will have to obtain a copy of XP or Vista because any eMachines discs will be useless. You will need to replace the power supply... If by chance, you find a board that will take your old processor and memory you will save some money there

Ok...I need a bit of advice on getting a new video card for my T2240 emachine; All my slots are white/gray incolor....I bought a card but it was the wrong one...what type of card can it take...also whats a good low-end card with, I think it was pixel shading? (have a game that needs it) and one more thing...will increasing my ram help speed an on-line game up? Will I need to upgrade my power supply...and I did by one of those....but....its large and mounts differantly (wont fit inside)...can I hook it up as an external power supply with no problems?

A:T2240 emachine video card replacement

Sounds like you dont have either a AGP slot or a PCI-E slot which means your stuck with a PCI card. and there are not a wide range of cards to choose from in PCI. Hooking up a PSU externally is both dangerous and impractical.

Hi, the motherboard (ABIT AV8-3RD EYE) has malfunctioned on my 3~4 year old computer and I am struggling to find a replacement.

The problem is as follows:

One long and one short beep

This happens upon turning the computer on. After researching on the internet I quickly discovered this beep code is related with motherboard errors. Perhaps there are some suggestions that may solve the problem?

A few months back, I could get it to boot into windows if I kept powering on for 5-10 minutes - but it has taken progressively longer to get running to the point where it isn't turning on anymore.

The motherboard is old (Skt 939... no pci express support... limited support for RAM) I am having problems finding a new motherboard to replace it. The other components include nvidia 5200fx agp card, AMD64 3500+ and 2x 512mb RAM running in dual channel (I think that it is PC3200)

I could take this opportunity to purchase a motherboard with PCI-E support so I can get a decent £50 graphics card... until recently my card in that machine was a 6800GT 256mb (AGP) and the system was impressive for gaming - falling back to the 5200fx was dissapointing as that card really struggles to handle most games.

I don't want to upgrade other components like memory/CPU, I'd be better off just getting a new computer if that where the case.

So are there any motherboards available that will support my components? (AGP ones if necessary, or PCI-E motherboards if possible :su... Read more

Ive had an accident which involved the laptop falling on the floor with the headphone jack plugged in. the rest of the laptop seems ok, but putting a jack in the socket doesnt stop the speakers working, and the audio coming out of it sounds echoey; sounds like the stereo is canceling out which means something has shorted.

not sure i want to open up the laptop just yet; but looks like the jack sockets can be replaced. I think its still under warranty but the accident was my fault.

any thoughts? where can i get spare parts from?

Many thanks

Hi James

What can you do is to use Google and search if you can find replacement parts but I?m pretty sure it can be pretty complicated. Repair is also not so easy. Do you want to do it alone?
I mean disassembling procedure is also pretty tricky and must/should be done by authorized personal only. Small mistake can ends with broken plastic parts and different holders.

In my opinion you should not do all this. Buy small USB Audio Adapter w/Mic Jack and problem is solved.

My socket AM2 based computer has a faulty motherboard and needs a replacement to get it up and running again. It does not turn on, I have ruled out the other components as the cause of this problem.

The other components are:

AMD Athlon 64 4xxx/5xxx+ X2 series dual core processor
2GB PC3200 RAM
Asus 7900GS GPU

It looks like a replacement will cost around £25-60 judging by what is available on ebuyer.com.

Any suggestions/recommendations? Anything on par with the old motherboard will be fine. I won't need something future proof as this is only a secondary computer my family uses.

I will be upgrading my own computer next year and passing it down to them so we are only looking at getting this computer back up and running in the meantime (they are currently stuck with the aging laptop!)

Thank you in advance your help will be much appreciated

also, Merry Christmas =)

A:Replacement needed for socket AM2 motherboard (M2N-SLI Deluxe)

You might have made a typo in describing your CPU. Is it an Athlon 64 X2 4600+?

I am surprised how few retailers are selling AM2 boards these days. TigerDirect has two and Newegg has three available. Personally, I would go with the Foxconn one, but I am biased for Newegg. haha
