Hiya folks. It's your favourite pain in the tukus. I have accepted my fate with the previous E-machines.
Now I'm working on another curb side special.
This one booted up when I brought it home, but couldn't, ( or wouldn't), download drivers.
After stripping the last computer that you tried to help me with, ( THE E-MACHINES t-2824), I went back to work on this one.
This time, the computer shut itself down after about one minute. There was a DISTINCT burning smell, Although NO smoke nor, hot to the touch components).
I tend to think it may be a power source short, but REALLY WISH TO HAVE your INPUT.
