  1. Hi Surferguy, Sorry, I got disconnected for a few days. I am glad you finally resolved your problems. Me too ... I was really worried if I have the same problem in power supply. And I contacted the eMachine help desk person to find out the specifications of my system and asked for assistance to sove my problems. They told me to check out my computer setting to make sure everything has been set correctly before deciding to do the necessary steps. As for the sleep mode problem, he suggested to make sure that the power management settings are correct. These settings determine when and how the computer will turn off and on. 1) Click on Start. 2) Click on Control Panel. (Make sure you are in Classic view in Control Panel.) 3) Double-click on the Power Options icon. 4) On the Power Schemes tab, change the Power Schemes drop down menu to Always on. 5) Change the entire drop down menus to Never. 6) Click on the Advanced tab. 7) Set the Power button drop down menu to Shut down. 8) Click on the Apply button and then on the OK button. 9) Click on the Hibernate tab and take the check out of the box that says Enable Hibernation. 10) Restart your computer. I followed the instructions and I tried to set my PC to sleep/stand-by mode, and after a few minutes I woke it up, and it works. I never thought that simple step can solve my issue. Pheww, finally ..... Ok, good luck to you, Surferguy, and thanks a lot for this forum..
  2. Thanks for your info, Eclipse... I'l try to download that software and install it to speed up my connection. BTW, what is RWIN?? Thanks.
  3. I think Mouse is right about the main characteristics of my PC (eMachine). Maybe its component installation, including the power system is too strict to accept any additional parts which will be installed into the system. Honestly I am really blind about inside the PC case and still learning hard about it. Maybe some of you can tell me what other symptoms that might happen to the PC when the part of system fails due to, let's say, lack of power or somthing.. Right now the problem that happened to my PC can be avoided. I follow the suggestion not to sleep my PC. Instead, I let it still on and just log off everytime I'm done with my PC. To make RAM run faster and more efficiently, I move my paging file in drive C (original HD with Windows OS installed) to drive G (add. HD with larger space and faster cache) and it works. But I still think something bad with my DSL connection (SBC Yahoo DSL). Mozilla is even faster to browse the internet than this browser. Or maybe it's caused by the same or another problem that I don't know. Any suggestion??
  4. Thanks to mouse & The Dude for your responses, I'll check the pins to find out.
  5. For All of you who are really experienced with PC, please :help: me .... I have a new PC, EMachine with AMD Sempron 3300, 512Mb RAM, 100 Gb HD (originally) & CD-RW/DVD-ROM (originally). In order to do some video projects, I installed additional HD (Western Digital, 250 Gb 7200 rpm) & DVD-RW DL 16X, both of them are installed as Slave. They ran fast and very good until two weeks ago when I subscribe DSL for my internet connection. My DSL sometimes doesn't run as fast as I expect and the connectivity is disconnected sometimes even the modem still on. The worse, my computer just freezes and can't do anything that forced me to reboot the PC by pressing the power button. I usually turn the PC off to standby mode to save the power and I never have the problems to wake it up everytime I want to use it again. But since yesterday, I couldn't wake it up again and I had to reboot it again. Now I turn off the standby mode and let the PC on all the time. Is there any problem with my hardware installation or maybe the DSL connections? Can you guys give me some advice to fix these problem? Is it ok to let the PC on all the time? Thanks......
