download soun drivers and it will work

if you have a volt meter, take the negative lead and place on a black/neutral pin in the PCI-e cord. Then take the positive lead and check all colored pins (typically yellow) for voltage. Yellow wires are 5volts and red is 12 volts...if there is now power when testing, you have a failed power rail and the power supply must be replaced

If they are PS/2, power off make sure that they are not plugged into the wrong port, they will fit....but won't work that way.

If they are USB, try booting into safe mode and see if they work there

Pressing [F8] repeatedly on boot is how to get the Safe Mode options to appear, then use the Arrow-keys, (up or down,) to highlight a Safe Mode option, then press [Enter] to select it.

Your computer is not passing the Power On Self Test or POST. Turn up the sound on the speakers, if you hear the sound of Windows loading then the fault lies with the graphics adaptor/card.
If you don't hear the Windows loading sounds then the computer is experiencing a more serious fault.
See my published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!
It goes through the standard procedure to find and repair the fault. Try and do it yourself if you can, the other option would be to contact a computer technician. Claim warranty support if you can. Usually a component has failed and would therefore need to be replaced, however it is possible that the fault is due to a loose connection some-where in the system. Go through the connections in the chassis and ensure that they are all in, give them a slight push.

Take care!

check the touch pad connector

Most likely. The power supply will fit, but Dell machines tend to be skimpy on the extra connectors as they are custom-built. The Video card is PCIe 3.0 standard. I could not get spcifics on your manboard, but I'm fairly certain that it is not up to the 3.0 level. PCIe is backward compatible, however. Just don't expect 3.0 level performance if you mainboard only supports the 1.1 standard. Basically you are racing the Ferrari in your driveway.

microsoft has a license type called OEM which detects the computer that it is installed on and some computers have the licence key stored in the bios of the computer.
So when you grab the old hard drive and put it in the next computer Windows will detect you changed computers and not run as per OEM licensing rules that it runs on only the original purchased computer.
You might be able to run the drive as a secondary drive but you would need to install a new windows operating system and hard drive. And then use a partioning program to make the secondary drive not an active drive.
also you new machine most likely has a different type of bios called EFI
and you would have to change its settings to run AMI Bios but I do not think that is your problem as I think it is OEM but it might be worth investigating if you can run a legacy bios in the bios settings.

Hi there. If your desktop has been overheating for any reason you will need to look at buying a new processor (cpu), power supply (if wires have been damaged from heat or voltage spike), or possibly a new motherboard. It would be advisable to have a computer shop look at the internal components of your desktop. Heat or a surge in power can damage the computer hardware. Good luck!

hello and good morning.
emachines are old and now owned by acer.com (gateway,etc)
they OWN many old names.
you are running XP right? the last man on earth to do so?

XP is a virus magnet and doomed, it is time to upgrade.
this PC is 2007 made. so is 12 years old, today..
the RTC coin cell battery will be no good now, replace it for $2
then reset BIOS inside BIOS screen " set default"
then test the HDD, to be sure it is ok, if not? then reloading any OS of any kinds is not going to work with any bad HDD.
Last, reload a new OS.
there are the steps. and can be expensive, spent on any PC this old with zero street value. ($0 if broken a it is)
