Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I just bought a W3653 last week and I've 3-4 questions. First, I'm 70 years old, had open-heart surgery 20 years ago which pretty well zapped me of any short-term memory and I am basically computer illiterate. I can't remember two thongs at a time and I must write down everything. I need to know how to get my speakers working, do I have to subscribe to some type provider to play DVDs, does this machine have a word processor, and how do I print an e-mail or anything else???

Hi,

Your concerns:

    \015\012
  • "how to get my speakers working" - depending on what type of speakers were bundled with your eMachine W3653, the speakers may either be connected as shown below:
  • \015\012
  • eba368e.jpg1b87a27.jpg
  • \015\012
  • "subscribe to some type provider to play DVDs" not needed, a CyberLink® Power2Go™ is pre-installed;
  • \015\012
  • "word processor" - the computer came pre-bundled with Microsoft Works® 9.0 and a 60-day complimentary trial period of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 both have word processors;
  • \015\012
  • "how do I print an e-mail" - pressing on "Ctrl" and "P" keys normally would instruct the printer to print;
  • \015\012
  • "pictures...icons on the back of the computer means" perhaps below image may help. A more comprehensive and detailed guide is available here.

In some instances, the computer may be set to accept the speaker connection at the front.
