Do a system restore point/date and see if that will take your PC back to where all your settings were at and what you liked at the time before you made the change.

If it's a Bios Password, then you can remove the power cord, remove the case, turn the computer on it's side and look for the CMOS battery. It is a silver battery on the motherboard about the size of a nickel. Use a small flat head screw drive to pop it out. Let the computer sit for an hour or two then put the battery back in and reboot. The date, time and password will be forgotten by the system, so you will have to go into the Bios or System Setup to put the date and time back in.

If it is a Hard Drive Password, you are out of luck. 99% of the time when you encounter a computer with a Hard Drive Password on it, the computer is stole. The original owner set it so that in the event the computer is stolen, thieves can't get to sensitive data. The owner could possibly set it remotely after it was stolen. The only way to remove it is have the original owner put in the password,or like you did when you put in another hard drive. Putting in another hard drive in most cases you will have to reload the operating system, drivers and application programs.

Have had a look at your drivers to see if they are ok? what happened before this behavior started?

You have to keep pressing it during the boot sequence. Can you get F8 to work? You can try having windows restore your last known good configuration.

Just hit the set up key as your machine boots up, usually, F2-F3 or F8.

Go to safe mode using the up-down arrows and where it says set/change password, simply hit the enter button, enter a new password in and close, using the save function.

You can now use that new password and are now officially the administrator!

Or else, you need some Windows password reset program to help you do that job.

fastest way to tell is for you to take the side panal of and look at the motherboard the make and model are printed on all boards the main manufacture is dell

If you don't have a recovery disk, which they usually don't provide anymore, you can make one if the computer is still working properly. Type" recovery disk" into help & it should walk you thru it. Otherwise you can call or email the maker of the computer, which I think is gateway & order one. Then put it in the computer, restart & it should walk itself thru. You make have to go to setup when the computer first boots up & make sure it goes to the dvd drive first.

Remove RAM(S), clean the ram slot by blowing air, fix RAM(s) back in position untill both the side clamps are properly locked.
If problem persists try resetting motherboard via jumper pins on the motherboard.

You have not specified what card you want inserted. Anyway.

Please remove the 3 screws at the back of the PC on the right side of the PC as you face to back. This will enable you to remove the cover thus exposing the innards of the PC. You will find at least one slot empty for a cord to be inserted. Insert the card with its contact lugs towards the motherboard and the metallic strip towards the back.. Fit it properly and tighten the screw on top of the metallic strip to the body of the computer. Once done, screwup the side plate of the PC and turn it around to face you. Now insert the CD that came with the card and install the card.
Now you are ready to use the card.

It is the video card!
So, when you plug the monitor in to the rear of the eMachine case, do you connect it in the aread where the keyboard mouse and USB and sound conntors are OR do you connect to the area when all the expansion slot covers are?

If you answered YES to the first part of the question, then the video signal comes from an 'integrated' video card that is part of the mainboard. This is bad. Contact eMachines in order todetermine if the system will allow a video card to be installed in an expansion slot...

If the second part of the quetion is YES, this is better. You can replace the video card andprobably be OK. Get you teenager to open up the case and pull out the video card. You need a new one but they come in multiple 'types' so you need some to have look at it and sell you another compatible one.

Java is your first problem get rid of that malware... second problem is you don't have a mac, haha, just kidding, but seriously get one.
To answer your question, I would try uninstalling your add ons 1 or 2 at a time to see which one will fix er back up. If that does not work, get Revo uninstaller from download.com and use it remove firefox (and java) completely. You can download the newest version any time for free. Personally I dont like a lot of background processes so I use the portable version of firefox which is also free.
