Its not much help but I had a problem with a friends computer due to the memory, it worked perfectly in my computer but wasn't recognised in his. This was due to a thing called latency. His computer was an Emachines one as well, what I would do is email Emachines and ask them precisely what type of memory your computer needs. ie speed and latency. Only other suggestion I have is remove all the memory and try the new memory chip in on its own and see if the computer will start up. Its possible that there is a bad connection in the slot you are trying to put the memory into. Failing that come back and post again, I'm sure there will be someone in the Forum who knows about Emachines memory.

hello...i have sent emachines an email,you never know.your suggestion to remove the existing memory to the other available slot is a good you say it will prove if the second slot is active.but like they say"if its not broken dont touch".and knowing my luck with pc,s i will do more damage.the funny thing is i was warned about compatibility issues with new memory and motherboards ,but ignored it.that will teach me a lesson.a big thankyou for your advice back to the forum.
cheers iqs
