Question about E-Machines EMA IMPERIAL GV (845GV) TG3 eMachines (145119) Motherboard
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!!
I had a similar problem. replacing the power supply didn't work. What can i do?

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.
