Won't power up

My T2625 will not turn on. I replaced the power supply about 5 years ago. Yes I know the machine is old but it does what I need it to do. Could the button to push it on go bad? I purchased a power supply and installed it. I can hear the motor on the power supply running but nothing happens when I press the button for the machine to turn on.

    I double checked to make sure the cables were connected corrected. I didn't move any cards or the memory. The fan on the motherboard is not working. Please tell me where to find the reset button.

How do I replace the power supply, and can I use one from an SR1738NX?

Before attempting to replace the power supply, I would check to see if they are compatible. I would check to see that the wattage of the Compaq Presario SR1738NX is the same or larger than what is in your current computer. This information should be on the label of each power supply.

Next, I would check the connectors to ensure that all the connectors that are currently connected exist on the old power supply.

Next, take pictures of all the power supply connections on your new machine.

Finally, remove the power supply from your new computer, replace it with the power supply of your old computer, reconnect all of the connectors, and turn on the machine.

Good luck,

Windows XP won't load on my emachine t3516

You may need to check to make sure Windows XP was installed properly, if the computer had crashed, you can do a repair, I am a computer technician, and I can tell you, that replacing the power supply will not do that.

Won't turn on

Power supply testers are a handy tool for owners of computers as well as having your computer hooked up to a back up power supply to insure you are not subjected to a brown-out, a loss of line voltage, which wreaks havoc on electrical components. If your power cable is good and properly connected and there are no lights on the unit or no beeps or sounds when pressing power button good chance power supply is bad. But if you have never opened up that computer and it is more than a year old, then there could be a fair amount of dust inside and the power bridge on the motherboard could have blown out, if you know what capacitors are there are 5-10 of them towards backside of CPU on motherboard, the tops should be flat and not leaking chemicals out, if they are you need a motherboard, I have not had one come back to life with new capacitors yet, tried 2 so far...

Power Supply for HP Media Center m1270 PC

Are you sure it's the power supply?

Most modern power supply units are of the ATX type. Brand should not matter. Your PC used a 300 watt power supply when new. You can purchase a power supply with more output (watts) if you like, but not less. You will have to purchase from a computer specialty store most likely - take the dead one in and compare it side by side with the new one before buying.

I have an emachine T2984 that won't boot. No noise of any kind. I had another emachine T2625 that was working. I took the power supply out of the T2984 (that wouldn't boot) and put it in the T2625 and it...

Power supply sounds fine. If the pc won't power up it could be your motherboard. If the pc is powering up and you get a 'no signal' on your monitor it could be your gpu.

PC won't power on at all.....

If you get no fans or lights on either the keyboard or frn of the machine, I would suspect a bad power supply. They are fairly easy to change.

Dimension 8200 will not turn on

Try a new power button. Also does the machine power light turn on at the front of the machine? if so check that the CPU is seated correctly as if it has come out of position then the machine doesn't boot. I would like to think power switch though.

Thanks J
