To my personal experience eMachine MB's dies a slow aggravating death. I have had 2 that went janky and would take about 15 power up tries to boot. Probably the situation you are in now.

Did the power supply you had go bad? I seem to recall a bit of an issue with some older machines in the 2k series that when the Power supply died it took out the MB with it.

Emachines t3958 wont power on


The green light means there is standby power to the motherboard.
Power button may be broken, does it 'click'?
With the case open, do any of the fans start, then stop?
If yes to the above, you may have a bad power supply. Can you borrow one to try?
Last test before it's the chip or mother board:
Remove the connectors for power from drives, video card, all but the motherboard (Do NOT disconnect small connectors on the motherboard, just POWER from the drives and video card)
Remove any expansion cards except video. Note where they go.
Try again. If it starts and fans run ok (video may not work but fans go normally.), shut it off, reconnect the video card. Try again, power off, connect or install one thing at a time until it stops running again. The last item plugged in is the culprit.
Always one item, power on, try it, then power off, try the next one.

My computer wont turn on


take out the psu completely from the cpu/tower, plug in the power cord,if there is a switch on the psu turn it on, next locate the main power connector (24pin) and find green wire,take a piece of wire and insert it into the green wire connector,next touch the other end of the wire to the psu outer case or a black wire on the main connector,if all is well the psu will turn on,if you have a dc voltage tester check the voltages on the red and black wires on molex connector...5vdc,yellow and black...12vdc.if ok look at the main board and inspect the capacitors to see if they are swollen, if ok
replace psu and disconnect hdd,cd/dvd,floppy ect from main board only leave memory,processor and video, power on if ok shut off and reconnect hdd, power on, if ok shutoff and connect floppy, if ok power off and connect cd/dvd drive.during this testing you will know what is bad.let me know how it turns out.email; arjoon.ken@gmail.com

It looks like issue with either mother board or processor.
open the box and remove all memey and power it on. if it makes a beep sound, there is no issue with processor, else we suscpect processor. If it make beep sound, it might be mother board issue. And for checking monitor working condition, remove monitor data cable and see no cable connected messages comes in monitor or not

If you have a Yellow light on power supply, chances are you have blown the power supply.
Even with a PC unplugged in a Bad Storm, I have seen many PC's and Laptops with Supplies shoot.
If you have a little computer savvy, the best thing to do is,
1. Disconnect power.
2. Open unit.
3. Disconnect all Devices from supply.
4. Disconnect 20 04 24 pin power supply connector to mother board.
5. If you have other connectors such as 4-pin 24 Volt acc. you can disconnect that as well.
6. Now plug in the supply. Note... Some supply's have a reset located in the rear of the supply, where it makes its input ( A/C connection. ) If so try the reset. Some supply's also light up or have a service light when sensing input power, some do not.
7. If all looks good and no sparks or flames, re-connect the mother board connection, (only)
Try to power on computer.
Note..... If you still have the Yellow light, Replace the supply.

In some cases, the power supply sees a fault and fold back to a protection mode.
The supply has several Capacitors in which hold a charge and when connected to the mother board retain that charge. Disconnecting the Mother Board 20- 24 pin connector will allow this charge to dissipate.
If all works after reconnecting supply, Your Good To Go.!!!
If not, you may need another Power supply.
Or may have done other damage.

Hope all works out for you.
Try it, it may work...

Thank you.

ASUS P4XP-X won't energized after minimal repair


Either the board was damaged during the repair attempt, or was bad to begin with. The original problem description (black screen) sounds like typical mobo "no boot" trouble. The loose heatsink on the chip may have contributed to the failure, or it may have been simply coincidence. Given the low cost of motherboards, it's silly to spend any more time on attempting to diagnose and repair a problem. Just replace the board and move on.

Dell 5150 - solid amber light at the switch.


Make sure the 12v power connector is securely connected to the system board. If you open up your computer look at the end of the board that the memory modules are there is a 4 pin connector thats the 12 v Make sure thats plugged in and secure, If thats ok you have already did the removal of the memory and replaced them, take out any pci express cards and use your onboard video, if that don't work try one memory module at a time see if that works you already seem to be savoy enough to do that and try that, and if that does not work you may need a new power supply. You can check it but probally will be bad I have the same desktop and thats been a problem with these 5150 along with the mother board going out after the warranty expires. I sure Hope this helps you out,, Happy Holidays to you and yours. Hey If you need me to look anything else up let me know. Thanks again bear001
