Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an emachine model 3220. The bestec atx power supply has a part rattling round in it. Is it worth me buying a new power supply and if so other than bestec (as I have read bad reports on this item) what should I buy? I have no power at all to my computer. Will it have blown my mother board?

When you say you have no power at all to your computer, have you checked the motherboard to see if you have a green light that comes on? You have to take the cover off and look at the motherboard. If the light does come on, it isn't your power supply. It is the motherboard. Good luck!

Wiring bestec atx 1523d to bestec tfx0250d5w revx4


Are you replacing one with the other or trying to wire them together? If the latter, why are you doing so? If you need more power, you'll want to buy a bigger power supply. I suppose you could wire it to use two, but you'd have to find a way to trigger the second power supply to come one or do it manually. I wouldn't try it unless it was an absolute last resort with no other options, though.

Emachines E4252 shutting down on boot up


This could easily be a power problem. You can check for overheating, but I would recommend not attempting to turn on the computer again, until you test the power supply.

eMachines (and gateway) have a long history of using Bestec Power Supplies (recognizable for their bright yellow warning label). These are highly defective and can result in the frying of your motherboard and/or processor.

I would recommend checking what kind of power supply you have. If it is a Bestec, it is most likely defective (or will become defective soon). Based solely on that, I would replace it. In addition, it may have already damaged your processor (causing it to get too hot easily) or your motherboard. Its rough, but better you fix it now, as opposed to replacing the motherboard or processor, just to have the power supply fry the new one (the Bestec PSUs still look like they function when they have failed, but send completely unreliable volts to your board).

If you need assistance finding new parts, I can direct you to cost effective alternatives.

just start over and buy a motherboard and processor and memory and plug your stuff into it. you will need an operating system because the emachines operating system only workes with an emachines motherboard. emachines is the cheap brand from gateway and i have had nothing but trouble with those machines.

Your power supply has gone out. This could have been caused by a surege, dust or bad power outlet.

You can purchase a replacement off eBay for under $25.00.

Ok, test the power button pins. First disconnect any power source to the computer. Then, find the power pins on your motherboard (the one that your case's power button connects to. Usually two wires, one red and the other black). Grab a jumper a connect it to those two pins, they usually have the letters "pwr" or "power" printed next to them. Then, once you've done this, with the jumper connected, connect the power cord to your power supply. It should turn on by it self. If it does, then the problem is the power button. If it does not do it, then the problem is the motherboard. Good luck.

I'd bet your power supply fried the MOBO. I've had two relatives Emachines do this. Both were purchased around the same time 4-5 years ago. It is a known issue caused by the Bestec Power Supply and Emachines will not help you. Assuming this is out of warranty, your options are to replace the MOBO and power supply or to buy a new PC.

Have the power supply replaced. It is a very simple procedure. I would recommend buying an 80+ model which is very efficient.
