Reconnecting power swith, LED light for power and hard drives on emachine

I saw your response to another question so I thought you might know. I recently had no power on my eMachine T2893. I discovered from the net that they have a notorious problem with supply, and I inspected mine and found a tiny capacitor rolling around inside the supply with brown burn residue where it should have been plugged. I bought and installed a suitable replacement but when troubleshooting before; I removed the connector for the on/off switch and LED lights for the power and HD. The new supply shows a green light on the motherboard but there is no response when I press the on/off switch. I'm thinking that I did not reconnect the the three connectors properly and before searching for a schematic or using a voltmeter I thought you might know. The mobo has a "front panel series of 7 pins. Logic dictates that one rail is hot and the other is common, but that is not the way I remember they were configured when I pulled them. Any help?

EMachine 2862 Desktop Dead On Power-Up


check all the leads to the hard drive and check that the fan starts spinning when you switch it on if it dont start then the problem is the switch these do often go and can be easily replaced and they are not expensive i had the same problem and found that it was just the switch hope this solves your problem for you you can bypass the swith so that the computer comes on when you turn the plug on but when you shut down the computer this shuts everything down but the switches are cheap enough to buy if you have changed the power pack then the only thing it can be is switch .................................

Emachines e4026 non-responsive


I don't think it's an overheating CPU. It would stay on for a bit longer if it was that. My best guess is a power supply issue. Either your power supply is bad, or more likely something is pulling too much power from it. Emachines are notorious for using the bare minimum hardware... possibly the extra hard drive is pulling more juice than the power supply can handle, so it shuts down. Try disconnecting power to the new hard drive and see if the machine comes up. If it does, you need a new, higher wattage power supply.

I DONT KNOW WHERE Tto pug in the power


Power Led?
hard drive Led wires?
If you are building a machine these areusually pluged directly into the motherboard.
the plugs are usually only compatible to their special sockets on the board. all you need to do is to examine the plug ends and look for sockets withsimilar shape and size as the plug.

Cant boot my emachine 2984


Did you check the CMOS battery and the CPU fan. Those are two things that if aren't working the way they should be, then some computers will not boot up. Try this first then post a response if you still can't get it working.
