Try another monitor to verify the Graphics Card, if you have a graphics card, then another monitor cable. check for bent pins in the connectors, eliminate the hardware by changing each component/cable one by one. It may be the Graphics Card/Adapter is gone. Clean the inside of machine, overheating due to dust will cook components, GPU's get quite hot. Try some Electronic Contact cleaner spray on the Graphics Card connections, if applicable. Unplug before reseating the Graphics Card or cleaning, take precautions in ESD before handling a Component. If your Graphics is integrated, you can purchase a aftermarket PCIe x16 Graphics Card quite reasonably, : http://www.google.com/webhp?source=search_app#q=ati+amd+pcie+x16+graphics+card&hl=en&sa=X&tbs=vw:l,p_ord:p&tbm=shop&ei=ze05Uf25KJDO9ASIyYHYDw&ved=0CF8Quw0oAg&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.43287494,d.eWU&fp=bc2048b0dd90d6d4&biw=854&bih=580

eMachines T5048?

Suggest you enter BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, set the first boot device to CDROM.
This makes the computer boot from the Recovery disk.

How to enter BIOS Setup? (May be called CMOS Setup also, but I don't believe the computer is that old)

Look at the bottom of the monitor screen, as soon as the eMachines logo comes up. It will state what key to press to - enter BIOS Setup.

Usually it's the DELete key, or F2 key,. for eMachines. May be the Tab key.

Window of opportunity went by, and you didn't get into BIOS Setup?
S'okay. We just need to know what key to press, for now.

Got the key written down?
Open the optical drive, and put the Recovery disk in. Close the optical drive tray.
Now hold the Power On button in, and for a count of 10 seconds.
Turns the computer off.

WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the enter BIOS Setup key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.

Hear beeps? Ignore them. They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it.

Takes a few seconds. Now you should be looking at the BIOS Setup utility, and the Main menu.

BIOS Setup utilities change from computer to computer.
That's because there are 3(?) major BIOS manufacturing companies, and each BIOS has a different version.
(Phoenix/Award and AMI)

The menu headings may go across the top.
Just one example;
Main / Advanced / Power / Boot / Exit

Or they may be listed in a column,



(Scroll down a little)


When in the BIOS(CMOS) Setup utility, you CANNOT use the Mouse anymore. You have to use the Keyboard to navigate around.

With the menu's going across the top, for example; you would use the Right Arrow key, and highlight -> Boot
Then press the Enter key.

With menus that are in a column, use the Down Arrow key to highlight Advanced, or Advanced BIOS. (Or Advanced CMOS)
Press the Enter key.

You will see - First Boot Device, Second Boot Device, Third Boot Device, and Boot from other.
To the right you will see the various devices, the computer can boot from;
HarDDrive, (HDD-0), CDROM, Floppy, Internet, etc.

You want CDROM to be to the right of First Boot Device.
If the devices are just listed in an order, you want CDROM at the Top.

With First Boot Device, Second Boot Device, etc listed;
Use the Down Arrow, and highlight First Boot Device.
Press the Enter key.

Your cursor will now be in the device order list.
Use the Down Arrow key to highlight CDROM.
Now look at the navigation guide at the bottom.

To move CDROM to the Top, you may press the;

Page Up/Page Down key, or the +/- key. (Plus/Minus key)
Depends on what is listed in the navigation guide at bottom.

(If +/- key just press the - key)

With CDROM at the Top press the Enter key.
Things differ here too;

A small window may come up asking, Save Changes?
It may show F12 - Save Changes
Or it may show a Y for Yes, and an N for No
(Or Yes/No)

If F12 just press the F12 key, and the computer will restart.
If you have the Recovery disk in the optical drive, the computer will now boot from it.

If Yes/No, or Y/N; use the appropriate Arrow key, and highlight Y, or Yes.
(Note: If Y just press the lower case y. The uppercase Y is just shown for clarity)

Press the Enter key.
If the Recovery disk is in the optical drive, the computer will boot from it.

Recovery disk isn't in the optical drive? No sweat. Put it in there.
Now press the CTRL key, ALT key, and DElete key AT THE SAME TIME.
This makes the computer restart.

If you have never approached this procedure before, it probably looks like, "Wa-wa-wa".
(That's what my niece states when I try to explain computer technology. Wa-wa-wa from the Peanuts cartoon. lol!)

You pull up the BIOS Setup utility, and tell me what you see.
You'll be my eyes, and I'll step by step you through it.
We will post back, and forth in a Comment.

This is what you need,


Not an ATI Radeon XPress 200 motherboard chipset?
I say thee nay to the forums,

1) The eMachines T5048 Desktop PC uses an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard.

Intel Support > D102GGC2 motherboard > Product Documentation and Manuals,


To the right of the first file -
File name: D102GGC2_ProductGuide_English.pdf
,left-click on Download.

On the next page left-click in the circle to the left of, I accept, etc.

[ The above is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files. {Do suggest upgrading to Adobe Reader X, (10), though, if you do not currently have it}

After you click on Download it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download ]

2) The motherboard chipset is an ATI Radeon XPress 200.
Uses an ATI Radeon XPress 200 Northbridge chip, and an ATI IXP 450 Southbridge chip.

Information on the Northbridge chip,


Look under the Model heading;

ATI Radeon XPress 1150 (originally named ATI Radeon XPress for Intel)
Intel Essential Series

(Grand Country is the Code Name for the motherboard)

Now look under the Codename heading; {code name for the chipset}
RS400, RS415, RC400, RC410

Information on the Southbridge chip is in the table that is next.
(Comparison of Southbridges)


The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip.

(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Core i9)

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,


The Northbridge and Southbridge chips have their directional names, from the way they are placed on the motherboard, for one.

If the motherboard is placed so that the Processor at the Top, and the Ram Memory is to the right, the Processor is due North.

The Northbridge chip is placed close to the Processor.
The Southbridge chip is closer to the Bottom of the motherboard, or South.
(Closer to the expansion slots)

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.

Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI-Express are High-speed graphics.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, or using Integrated Graphics, is Not high-speed graphics.
Anything associated with the PCI bus is handled by the Southbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

Anything connected to,
1) IDE
3) USB
4) Ethernet
5) Audio (Codec)

Motherboard diagram,


In the motherboard manual, (Product Guide), go to Page 11.
The motherboard is shown rotated to the right, in comparison to how it sits in a computer.

The Processor socket is indicated by the letter H.
To the Left is a square sitting diagonally. This is the Northbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip has an aluminum finned Heatsink sitting on top of it,


Click on the small photo of the motherboard to enlarge.
Processor socket in the foreground, Northbridge chip with aluminum finned Heatsink, sitting on top of it.

[ The Southbridge chip also has a Heatsink sitting on top of it. It's to the top left corner of the Northbridge heatsink, in the photo ]

Notice the wording for the motherboards brief specifications in it's heading.
The last specifications stated; ATI RC410 Chipset MBoard.

ATI RC410 MotherBoard Chipset.

In otherwords ATI Radeon XPress 200.

Drivers for your computer can be downloaded from here.

Either a mismatch in ram bus speeds or timings. assuming the modules are seated correctly.

E-Machines T5048... | Answered on Jan 05, 2011

You will need to download the sound card driver. If you have the driver discs which shipped with the PC, the driver should be located there.
If you don't have the discs you still have a few options.
go to the windows update site and search in the optional/ non-critical updates. Many times Microsoft will provide the drivers.
if that doesn't work you can go to the E-machines support page and search for drivers and downloads.
from there you will be prompted for the model and serial number of your PC.
you will then be presented with a list of available drivers.
select the sound card driver for your operating system

E-Machines T5048... | Answered on Jan 04, 2011

May I get the make and model # to help you more.

E-Machines T5048... | Answered on May 17, 2010

did you touch any setting in the control panel or audio box

E-Machines T5048... | Answered on Mar 28, 2010

Your camera probably came with a cable that helps you do this. The cable has a rectangular USB connector on one side, and a smaller trapazoid connector on the other end. This cable connects your camera to your PC. The cable goes into the side of your camera, and the larger end goes into the BACK of your computer. There are usually 2-6 USB connectors on the back of the computer. It doesn't matter which one you connect the camera to - they're all the same. When you connect the camera, your computer should automatically come up with instructions. Good luck!

E-Machines T5048... | Answered on Mar 03, 2010
