Despite it being old, may be helpful:

I believe (From years running a computer support company) that eMachines keyboards have different controllers - probably intentionally - that will only work with eMachines computers. If you've changed the motherboard whilst repairing your PC then this will definitely be the culprit - sorry, it's new keyboard time!

1. check your keyboard is plugged in the right port (ps/2 ports for mouse and keyboard look alike, each have a 6 pin mind din connector, but they're different colors and not interchangeable, make sure you got them connected where they're supposed to be.
2. test the keyboard on another machine if possible (to rule out your keyboard as the problem).
3. do you see any lights blinking on your keyboard when the computer starts (if not there's problem with either your motherboard or the keyboard itself)
4. is there any error when the machine boots? (I think error 301 is the keyboard error) check number 1.
5. if possible try to use a usb keyboard (hopefully your bios will have usb support enable other wise your usb keyboard may not work.)

Could be a couple of things.

First, try connecting another keyboard using the same type of connection as your keyboard. (PS2, or USB). If that one works in the machine; then it's more then likely that there is a problem with your keyboard.

If it doesn't work, it may be a problem with the system itself or possibly a software problem. To test a keyboard is very simple and this test is integrated in most of the BIOS startup systems today. Simply press more than 7 keys right when you turn your power on to the system. If it beeps after a few seconds of holding or brings up a keyboard error, then the keyboard is communicating with the system. If there's a keyboard error that actually states that there is no keyboard present; then there is a problem.

I hope this helps you narrow it down. If it's not the keyboard itself, and you can't get any keyboards to work, I'd have that shop take another look at what they did.

My emachines t3604 starts up and all the fans are running but doesnt boot up and keyboard and monitor are not working. Replaced the ram but that doesnt work any ideas.


Try downloading puppylinux, burn it onto a cd then boot from the cd, if everything works fine, then you need to reinstall windows.

Window auto up down


So the shop doesnt know whats wrong, but says its not related to the accident. They dont know squat. Contact your Insurance company and explain what is wrong.All these problems happened after the accident. Insist that they have the DEALER check it out and repair it. They are obligated to repair the car like it was before the accident.. Sounds like a ground issue.

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.


Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

ACER ASPIRE ONE KEYBOARD REPLACEMENT


I have opened and worked on several laptops over the years. I can tell you that there are many things you have to remove sometimes (depending on the brand and design) in order to replace the keyboard. Unless your comfortable doing this I would suggest taking it to a computer repair shop. I'm sorry this is not really the answer you were looking for, but It can get complicated sometimes. You will enjoy your computer sooner and if a shop changes it for you, then they will have to warranty their work if something goes wrong. Could be to your benefit. Thanks!

Make sure the power is completely off. Turn the power back on. Try using Esc key, F1, or the delete key. If you press the wrong key, it will give yoiu a keyboard error indicating an option to press the correct key. I'm pretty sure one of those keys will work on an emachine.

Let me know.

You can get the schematic from SoundStream. If you get the schematic and need help, email it to me at:
babin_perry@yahoo.com

If the amplifier does nothing, post the DC voltage on each of the pins of the SG3525 (or whatever IC they're using in the supply). Use this as a template:

Pin 1:
Pin 2:
Pin 3:
