Hi i have an
emachine C3060( yes i know there's my first error right there )
AMD Sempron Processor
160 GB HD
NVIDIA Geforce 4 MX Graphics
512 DDR SDRAM

My computer was running a little sluggish so i rebooted my computer. I didnt go to start and turn off computer, i just pushed the button and turned it off. I turned my computer back on and it was stuck on the big "E" Logo and it shows the buttons F10 and F2 for the bios stuff...

So i turned off my computer and turned it back on and it still froze on the screen. I turned it off again and turned it back on and tried going through the bios stuff and neither one of those buttons work. So i get on my sisters computer and try to look up on how to fix it, and i saw someone else on this forum had the same problem i did. I did all the steps they told him to do and none of them worked.

I pulled out all the extra USB's that i had plugged in. But my mouse and keyboard are wireless and its a USB. So i just left it in. That didnt work. Then i went and got another keyboard that wasnt a USB, and it still didnt work... So i opened my computer, and saw it was dirty, and cleaned it out, that didnt work either. I have to sticks of Ram in there, i pulled 1 out and restarted my computer, that didnt work, so i put the other one in and that didnt work either... So its not the Ram... I looked at the capacitors and none of them seemed fried or anything...

I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me out... I dont know what else to do with it anymore (besides getting a different computer that's not an Emachine :thumbsup: )

Maybe try taking it to a computer place or a place like Best buy, or Circuit City. Have them take a look at it

Have an XP CD?

If so, put it in...boot to Recovery Console (change boot options, if possible)...run the fixmbr command and see if that helps.

I have a emachines too it works but is slow. Take it too an expert or circuit city or where ever you got it... try upgrading the ram a get a better processor. What happened exactly before why is it sluggish. Too many programs? Emachines are ment for using, browsing, typing, etc. Not downloading things that give you background programs :thumbsup: especially anti viruses firewalls and etc. What was on your computer??

also when you said u have two sticks of ram and you pulled one out that only decreases the mem. . Get a bigger ram a better CPU etc. If that doesn't work go to a technician or someone who knows a lot about computers.
