I have a Emachines W2040- thats a few years old 1gb memory ,2 dvd burners Nec-3500A& 2500A 4o GB haed drive (C) original to computer, 160 GB slave/(D) drive It has been acting crazy -locking up , mouse freezing , not responding to the on off button , Now does'nt boot at all hard drive light does'nt come on , and cant gear the fan working ! MY question is does it sound like it's worth saving ? I mean if you factor in labor plus parts ? if it could cost me more than say a couple of hundred ? I could practicaly buy a new one that's faster , more capalbe and has more hard drive space ! I,m not much of a gamer other than Tumblebugs and will use the computer for dvd burning , web suring, & some slight photo manipulation ! - and I think I could manage with a new desktop in the $500.00 range? what do y'all think ? Thank you & sorry for the earlier post in the wrong place my apologies to all on that one CIAO!
