CALIFORNIA -- I purchased a E machine on sale at Target, in Fairfield, CA in October 2009 by February 2010, the CD went out, then the sound, it was still under warranty the company said I need to delete all my added programs, send it to them at my expense and they would fix it, well since I only paid $345.00 for the computer and it cost around $45.00 to send and my programs I added were around $200.00 it wasn't in my opinion worth me sending them it they should have replaced it, to this day I have a messed up system still under warranty that stinks, won't be repaired, I guess the old saying is true you Pay for what you Get.2 Replies - Latest reply on 02/07/2012Add reply

I brought a e-machine at my Wal-Mart up the street from me. I get it home and it did not have any software. it told me to REBOOT ....... Okay so I shut the computer off. Restart it. I do it two times. I call the company, sadly the young man was Indian I had a very hard time understanding him. (side note I help people learn English as a second language ESL, so I understand ascents.) He tell me to shut down the computer, restart it holding the f10 key and alt. I do this two times. He said he will send me new software. I need the computer !!"NOW"!! for my job. I went back to WAL-MART told them the story. The Staff are great people at WAL-MARt. As I was waiting another person came up with the same computer. I replied, let me guess no software?? Yes, and the fan sounds like and airplane. SORRY E-MACHINE BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE MY VOTE. I just wish companies could get people that spoke clearer ENGLISH. We all need jobs in these world however we need to be understood to help others

Bought an E-machine from Wal-Mart back in Nov 09. Volume has not stayed up since day one. "D" drive has failed twice. E-machione customer service is a joke. After repeated e-mails and phone calls to their hack technicians in India, I am told machine must be packed up and shipped(on my dime of course) to Texas for repair. This computer started giving me problems after only 3 weeks out of the box. Wal-mart will only stand behind their computer for 15 days from date of purchase. Evidently they know they sell junk.

I urge everyone reading this to run - don't walk away from E-Machine computers. I have also come to the conclusion that Wal-Mart cannot be trusted for quality merchandise.
The warranty is so hard to get you will GIVE UP and I'm sure this is what they planned, you cannot get thru to a person for love nor money,,i for one am giving up and will just pay for the repair myself,,, Add reply
Well this computer was purchased in 2006, all in all its not that bad the computer was on the very low end side I did not purchase it though my mom did and I bought it from her for 50 bucks but the price she paid for it was almost 300 I found this ridiculous why this low end machine cost close to as much a medium - high end gaming computer cost well over the years I have slowly upgraded it now it has a dual core cpu @ 3.0GHz 2GB RAM geforce 9400gt 1gb graphics card and a new case all thats left is the heatsink fan and motherboard which still limit this computer greatly... the onboard chipset was a ati xpress 200 series which ati does not support the drivers for anymore, the cpu fan is very low end and extremly loud any process you put on the cpu this thing goes off like a helicopter, however for being almost 4 years old the motherboard is still in great shape, (the d101ggc as intel refers to it) this has been my learning computer and it has tought me a lot though.. I would never buy an eMachine again nor any other retail computer.1 Replies - Latest reply on 02/21/2010Add reply
The machine froze up twice in the first week and the retail dealer was kind enough to replace the hard drive, which was defective.

The repaired machine simply shut down twice when I tried to start Thunderbird email client. No indication of error, just shutdown.
Windows7 also could not locate a driver for an HP Laser Printer that is about one year old. I don't recall the model, but it is a common printer sold in office and computer stores.
I'm returning th E-Machine and getting a locally built system.
Also going back to WinXP.
Windows 7 is not ready.
We bought an Emachine from Best Buy, and we loved the cost and we have had NO problems as of yet with the product, we recommend it. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 01/29/2010Add reply
