There are many places to buy a power supply. And place that sells computer hadware will have them (or online at places like Newegg, Buy, Tiger Direct etc)
They are not that expensive.
Changing it is pretty easy.
4 screws, and the unit will come out.
All the rest is modular plugs to the motherboard, and onboard devices (like hard drive, CD ROM, etc).

Just make sure you buy one that has the correct wattage (you can go higher then what you currently have).
Just make sure it is for the correct style (AT, ATX etc)

Something is draining the battery on our 2002 bmw z 3. The battery and alternator checks out good. What could be the problem??


The problem is that an electrical component in the BMW that should be dormant when the vehicle is shut down is actively drawing power.
The only way to track it down is to have tests run to see which circuit is drawing excessive power because there are numerous components that might be the cause.

Pc wont switch on


More than likely, your power supply has gone out. Especially since it is an eMachines Desktop, they are notorious for their power supplies. A new power supply costs between $30 and $80. To replace it you usually just have to remove the 4 screws on the back that hold it in place, and unplug all of the components that it is connected to (make note of these as you will need to connect the new one to each of these components again). Plug the new power supply connections into all of the same components as the old one (don't worry if you have leftover plugs, its for expansion purposes), slide the main housing back into place and secure it with the 4 screws you removed before.

After a power outage, the lid is locked and won't open. I tried running a new cycle but won't run either. Any suggestions. Thanks, Jan


This is a common problem, often associated with a momentary power failure when the controller doesn't get time to reset and return to an idle state before the machine gets power back and it gets "confused". Regardless of the cause, you will almost certainly find that unplugging from the mains (Not just powering off on the button, as some door locks have a sneak circuit, even when the power is turned off at the button) and leaving the machine undisturbed for a full 20 minutes will allow a reset, the door lock will disengage and all will be well when you power back up.
Additionally, on older machines with analog program selectors, turn the selector to an end of program setting before you power it off.

Storm knocked power off late yesterday afternoon....back on this morning. PC won't power up....small green light on back flashing. Modem, router, etc. all back up and running, but PC won't turn...


Hello,
The first thing to try is to cycle the power. To do this, unplug the power cord from the back of the PC and press and hold down the power button on the PC for 5 seconds. This will completely drain any "stuck" power in the components. Now plug the power back into the PC and try booting. If it still does not come back on after this, then you may be dealing with a blown power supply. You can buy replacement power supplies from your local PC shop for about $50 for a 400watt.
To protect your devices in the future, make sure you have a good surge protector and / or a UPS (uninterrupted power supply).

CAN I SWAMP PARTS FROM MY EMACHINE T5062 TO THE NZXT NEMESIS ELITE


Yes you could but eMachines use the cheapest components they can lay their hands on so not really cost effective, things that you could salvage would be DVD writer, power supply and possibly memory but you could probably sell the whole base unit for more than it would cost to buy these components to add to your new build

Emachines desktop Wont boot.


A simple and effective task (well most of the time) is to reseat components on the motherboard. This can include unplugging the components, including but not limited to:

Hard Drive and Optical Drive Cables
IDE/SATA Connectors
System Ram
AGP / PCI / PCI-E add in cards

Note - Never mess with the processor unless you feel qualified to do so.

If after reseating all the components, the computer still does not boot, try setting in your BIOS to start up from the CDROM and insert your recovery disc into the drive and see if the recovery detects the drive. If it does, its most likely the boot header in the file system has gone kaput. You could attempt a re-installation of Windows by choosing the repair option, however, this is a last resort thing, and if you cannot do this either, then you might be in the market for a new computer.

When a new computer is bought, you might want to buy an external USB Powered enclosure for your hard drive so you can plug it into the new tower and recover all of your documents.

I know how the failing computer feeling feels like........ So good luck!

Do you hear the system POST (Power On Self Test). In layman's terms that's when the system beeps and does a systems check. If you don't here this, the motherboard is usually dead. It could be another component though.

So, if you disconnect everything externally and internally down to the CPU and a few RAM chips (only what's required to do a POST) and a keyboard, to then see if it POSTs.

If it doesn't POST, then, if possible, try a new CPU, RAM, and Keyboard, other than this, you would replace the motherboard.

If it POSTs, you need to let us know how far it gets in the boot process and what error messages appear. If the boot is short of successful, you can still do the same things listed above to see which component is failing. The replace it. A process of elimination.
