Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

I think motherboard is shot

I have an emachine that just reboots after i put a new power supply in. the original power supply was shot. It starts up to the point where it asks to start windows in different modes. No matter which mode i try the computer shuts down and restarts to that point. I think the motherboard is shot. Am i correct or is there some other problem? If the motherboard is shot, is the cpu also shot? If the cpu not shot can i use it in a intel D845BG motherboard or intel 815

Replaced Mainboard on Emachine w3653, keeps restarting


If it reboots before you make the Windows load screen, chances are it's the power supply. You can go into the BIOS, look at the power setup and with most BIOS's you can watch the DC supplies. If they vary like mad while you're doing this (with the PC effectively in idle), either something is loading down the power supply or it's defective.

If it gets to the Windows startup screen and starts to load, then reboots, it's probably a defective RAM chip.

T2682 emachine running fine video lite went yellow & HD also


The first thing you should do is remove the video card and try to boot the PC using the onboard video (video on the Motherboard) and see if that solves the problem. If it does, try putting the video card back in in a DIFFERENT PCI slot and try it again. Sometimes Windows loses its marbles about cards inserted into PCI slots. My nieces eMachine loses its marbles over the Wireless LAN card about once a year, so I just move it to a different slot (swap it with the phone modem card). If that makes it flaky again, try updating the video card drivers. If it doesn't help, your video card is shot.

If it isn't the video card, try taking out one memory chip at a time and booting with the first one in. If that doesn't do it, swap the memory chip with the other one and try booting it again. If needed, replace bad chips....

After that, it is probably the power supply or the MB itself. Swap out the power supply first. If it is not the power supply, then it is probably the MB, and you are SOL.

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.

Emachine t2642 power supply


Apparently this model has a bad motherboard, which manifests as a power warning and eventually a refusal to boot up. You can replace the power supply (as far as I know, any generic one 250-watt or better will work) but it's unlikely to help. You can buy a new motherboard (and new power supply, if you want to) direct from eMachines, but it's also likely to fail pretty soon. Your best bet is to get a new computer (NOT an eMachines one) and put your hard drive in as a slave so you can get your data off.

Fast Fans nothing else


If your system won't even beep when powered on, your most likely problem is a bad power supply. You can get a new power supply fairly cheap - a good one is here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153023

If you install a new power supply and the symptoms don't change, your motherboard is probably shot.
