Question about E-Machines T2792 PC Desktop
Hey all, I wonder if somebody else has run into this: The PC is an E-Machines T2792 and belongs to my mom. She walked in on it one day and found it powered on, but not booted. No output to video and the lights for the CD and HD simply blink non-stop. No discernable code or pattern to the blinking and the PC won't even get to CMOS. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that the power button seemed to be jammed. I was able to depress the button and get it to boot once, but upon reboot was back at square 1 (blinking lights). After taking the side panel off, I also noticed that while the power supply comes up and running, the CPU fan does not. I'm quite sure that the power button was damaged by one of the grand-kids (ages 2 and 4) while mom was out of the room. Could this have also caused some damage to the mother-board or processor? Any trouble shooting suggestions are welcome.
Sandrew, Thank you for the suggestion, unfortunately for me it didn't work, but then again I didn't find exactly what you described either. There was no JBAT1 on the MB, there were, however, circuts with jumpers labled j1 through j4. I figure that the difference in the labling may be due to the fact that this is a proprietary brand.

This could be a corrupted bios, look on the motherboard for the 'JBAT1' terminal and put the plastic jumper cap from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. Start the pc hopefully and press F2 or DEL to enter the bios and set the time and date in standard bios settings and look for the auto detect drives and select it. press ESC and and save settings and it will re boot and go into windows if the softwaere was not corrupted when it was turned off at the button.
