There are just too many eMachine models to be familiar with every one, however, as a preliminary inspection, remove the side panel, and turn the computer on to see if you see a green "Health" light. This will give you an initial clue as to how to pursue the problem. eMachines have historically had power supply problems. If you do not see a green health light on the motherboard, then your power supply is defective. A power supply supplies various voltages + - 5V, + - 12V ,etc. A power supply can be easily tested by a local shop with the proper test equipment. You might start there if you are a DIY! Short of that, you can purchase a power supply for under $65.00.

    Just to clarify..



    If the green light is ON, it is probably NOT the power supply, especially if you hear the drives power / spin up.. If you find the green light, and it is not on, then likely it IS the power supply..

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.

EMachines T2824. Does nothing but light on mainboard coming on...


This is a motherboard problem. You'll need to replace it. Although, it may be cheaper just to buy a new PC (eMachines are never very expensive, or well-made for that matter)

Emachine will not come on


Reseat the power cord that is on the motherboard. Sometimes if you pull that cord from the motherboard (be careful there is a clip that is holding it to the board) wait about 1 minute then plug the cable back onto the motherboard your machine will possibly turn on. Also unplug your power supply cord from the computer when you do this. The other issue could be that the battery on the motherboard is dead.

Emachine with XP home edition doesn't start


Hi hearalso, down to the basic's. Replace power cord.
No help there than, remove the case's side panel to expose the motherboard. (Normally it is the left side panel while facing the front of the PC.)
Look closely for a small (green in color) led light. The power cord must be connected to the PC & connected to you're power strip but do not press the power on button on the PC.
The green led tell's you the board is receiving 5volts. Check all connections. Un-plug & reconnect every data & power connector in your PC. (Double check). There is a fuse inside your power supply that may have blown. Check you're manual page, Approva Statements B-1. Fuse Warning Instruction Caution.
Check fuse in power supply. (Unplug power cord before opening).
If you can not power up the PC after all of the above than if possible, swap out the power supply.
Replacing the power supply is the last step.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask.
Good Luck!

Mobo problems


Assuming the power supply is ok, and the pc is a few years old, it could be a flat cmos battery so check for the disc shaped 3V battery and see if it's flat. Whilst you have done that look for the JBAT1 terminal and put jumper on pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to 1-2. Look at the capacitors (tube shaped things) for the tops and sides swelling, if so mobo needs replacing. You need also to check the power supply leads to the motherboard and check its connected to mobo ok. Start up pc if it will and set the time and date in standard bios settings.
