eMachines Complaint - Bad Motherboards
INDIANANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- eMachine motherboards will fail
Do you like to pull your hard earned money from your pocket and buy a computer just to find out that the computer you bought from eMachines Or Gateway has no warranty?
Well this has happened to many of people around the world.
Just remember, you get what you pay for and with eMachines it’s not a lot, expect a lot of lies from them.
I have had 7 eMachines fail with bad motherboards and even had one fail at 10 months old.
They just blew me off till the warranty ran out and then sent me a notice that it was out of warranty and gave me a link to their site to order a new one like I would pay for another board that might not last the 10 months again, I think not.
You just might be one of the people stricken with the eMachine blues like me.
First you might notice that you’re getting a lot of weird errors or system crash reports or the pc just freezes up on you or it will not make it past the eMachines boot screen.
What I found out about these nasty motherboards is that they use bad capacitors on them and they will either leak or just explode inside the case.
I do not like trying to call them because they want to charge you $20.00 to your credit card for each call for service.
They will put you off or just tell you to use the restore discs that came with your pc and just destroy all your data but a lot of the time its your motherboard and doing a restore will just make you loose all your data and will not fix the problem.
If you e mail tech support they will tell you the same thing but some people only have one pc and can not even get on line to do this.
These people at support are nothing but a waste of a skin bag.
The best thing to do is to go buy a aftermarket motherboard non eMachines and install it and re install your windows back on the pc and be done with it, Warning to people that do not know, you will need a new Windows disk for this and not the restore cd.
The restore cd will no longer be any good.
A good motherboard to put in these silver and black cases is a MSI motherboard, If yours has the Intel Processor in it go with the Intel type board from MSI so you can still use your processor.
Or if yours came with a AMD go with it.
Some of the newer ones like I have had the AMD motherboard in it but when my motherboard burnt out it took the processor with it so I just went with a Intel Pentium 4 .
Just remember you will never be satisfied with the support team from eMachines or Gateway.
The best way to hurt a company is not to buy from them and to spread the word not to buy from them.
It is your choice so do a Google search on emachine motherboard defects before you buy one.
I just got off the phone with someone at corporate office and he said that he could not help again so f them.
DONT BUY A EMACHINE OR GATEWAY COMPUTER
