  1. I have an e-machines (I know e-crap) T1740 which keeps freezing up. It will work for a very short time, then everything freezes and cannot move mouse, nothing. Then I have trouble re-booting - need to let it sit for about an hour before I can turn on again, if I try sooner, only the fan will start and nothing else.:eek:

    Sounds like 1 of 2 things. Emachines are famous for power supplies going out really fast. Just crappy hardware. The other problem could be heat related. Check temperatures and make sure its not getting too hot. But 10 to 1 its your PSU
