what does the inside of an emachine look like

I'M TRYING TO GET A PICTURE OF THE DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE INSIDE OF MY PC. IT IS (WAS) AN EMACHINE RUNNING WINDOWS XP. NEVER HAD ANY SERIOUS PROBLEMS BUT IT WOULDN'T REBOOT AND THE FANS KEPT RUNNING. I HAD A PC GEEK COME TO MY HOME & HE SAID IT WAS THE MOTHER BOARD...HOWEVER, AFTER I WENT OUT & BOUGHT A NEW PC, HE CAME TO SET IT UP FOR ME & HE ATTACHED A UNIT TO THE HARD DRIVE & WAS ABLE TO RETRIVE SOME FILES, PICS, ETC OFF THE OLD ONE. NOW I'M WONDERING IF IT WAS THE MOTHERBOARD OR PERHAPS THE HARD DRIVE. IT WAS A RECTANGULAR BOX THAT SETS RIGHT INSIDE THE FRONT OF THE PC & A BELT=TYPE THING WAS ATTACHED TO IT.

  1. Yes, it was the hard drive. And please, get your caps look fixed!
  2. If he was getting files off your machine, that would be your hard drive.
    Not sure about the belt, sounds pretty old school to me. Could be driving a fan maybe???
