Question about E-Machines EMA IMPERIAL GV (845GV) TG3 eMachines (145119) Motherboard

3 Answers

No Power up on depressing On/Off button.

The PC has suddenly powered down for no apparent reason in the past with increasing frequency. Today, would not start at all; no sign of life, fans or lights ! Disconnected On/Off switch and found it open circuit. Thought " Gotcha!". Short circuited the two power sw. pins on MB, Nothing. Disconnected power supply and tried "Paper Clip Test" on 20 pin PSU connector (between green wire and black ).Fan started running. Checked voltages on plugs going to drives, approx 11.8 and 6.6vdc. What do I check next ?! Hopefuully not the price of a new GV20030812 MB!!

    Went to turn on the computer the other day and nothing....no power at all. I have since replaced the power supply, but still nothing. I have cleaned all of the dust out (and there was alot) but dont know how to tell what the problem is.

    I have a W 2646 with the same problem, replaced the power supply and still no power. Think the mother board got taken out with the PS.

Boogiemaster is correct. I would replace it. checking it like that wont be accurate. It needs to load tested.

Sometimes if the CPU is overheatign it will power down to stop the cpu from buring out. A power suppluy just supplies power to the motherboard and that's it. If the CPU gets hot it shuts down and wont start till it cools down again.

E19T5W monitor doesn't stay on once power button is depressed


Chances are the power supply in the monitor is going out.

Today, monitors are cheap and unless you have a 24' or better, it really doesn't pay. You may spent $100.00 and find one new for $135.00
Hope this helps

Usually the notebooks shut down when increase the temperature of cpu. For thst reason we must open and clean the heating sink and apply new thermal paste on cpu and graphics card gpu chip every 2 with 3 years.

HP Pavilion a6602f suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason.


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Debdeb_64.

The power supply could be ok, this little green light that you see on the rear of the tower case is likely to be the Ethernet/Network connection.


Possible reasons for failure are as follows:
It could be a loose connection at the 24Pin or Processor 4Pin power connector.
A damaged power supply, is possible.
A faulty power on switch.
A dead mainboard.
A loose connection.

I have published a few guides that should help you in this regard, they are entitled:
How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!
How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
and most importantly My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Do contact a computer technician to test components if need be.

Take care!

Have you checked the settings? There's one in there for auto-shutoff. I had this happen and it turned out I had accidentally changed this setting.

Why does my dell inspiron e1705 keeps cutting off for no apparent reason.


Hello.

The most common reasons are the power adapter/cord and power jack.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.
The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Also, remove the heatsink and apply new thermal paste The motherboard may need replacing. Leave it to an expert if you are not familiar.

Hope this helps.

Power problem


Hi there,

The Printer unable to turn on could be of two reasons.

(1) Connect the Printer directly to the wall outlet instead of connecting through the power surge protector (If connected through surge protector).
(2) Check whether the Power adapter is getting warmed up after connecting to a particular wall outlet.
(3) Try connecting the printer to any other wall outlet and check for the results.


Hope this information would help you in this regard.

With regards,
Ashesburn.
