Question about E-Machines T1360 PC Desktop
First off let me say I am an idot that more than likly caused this issue but if you guys can help me fix it I would praise the ground you walk on. So here's the story.
Main desktop ethernet was fried by a lightening storm so I was down to my wirless connection with my Acer to rely on. No problem there. Booted it up connected to the net, did my thing... only here's where I messed up, I went to bed and Left the laptop on. It was plugged in, storm was long gone, and it was or so I thought, in a well ventalated area. Morning came, went to go get online, laptop was off. Thought this was odd but paid it no mind, hit the power button and went to the bathroom. Came back, still laptop off... curious, hit power button again, Lights came on for about half a second like it was turning on, then turned off. No fan, no drive noise, no screen... nothing other than the power button. Tried it again and again and till this day, that green light turns on and flips right back off only a second later and nothing...
Here's what I tried...
Took battery out, tried power on with just the cord... same issue.
Put battery in, unplugged the power cord.... Same issue.
Took out memory first with plug no battery... same issue
then with battery no plug.... same issue.
Replaced memory, removed HD, again with battary in, no plug... same issue
The with battery out and plugged in.... you guessed it... same issue.
Took the whole blased thing apart. no dust, no burns... nothing to indicate a problem...
put back together, repeated all the above... same issue.
Finally... Attempted a battery reset... nothing... issue remains...
Sorry for the long drawn out explanation, but I didnt want to waist your guys time running me through endless things I have already tried. I'm thinking the motherboard or CPU is toast... whats your guys thoughts???
Ther is only one thing that you have not tried I think. Try to remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard for about 15 minutes and reconnect it. It's a small lithium battery.
