Emachine t1842 will not come on. used to come on and brought up bios setup. i replaced battery, still same prob. then one day it would not turn on at all and has not come back on since.


I've had quite a few of these in my shop, and the problem is usually the power supply. Additionally, when the power supply goes out, it can do damage to the motherboard as well. First try swapping out the power supply and if that doesn't fix it, you will probably need a new motherboard.

Emachine 3240 possible power problem?


I would suggest try to swap the power supply out with another known good power supply.

I've seen where even though the light on the motherboard is lit, it is not getting enough power to start the machine up, especially if you have a higher end video card connected to it.

Problem with emachine m5124 startup


Take the battery out and unplug the power cord. Press down the power button continuously for a solid 30 seconds without stopping. This drains all the power out of the circuits and resets whatever invalid state your computer is in.

Now, leave the battery out but plug in the AC and turn on the laptop. If it works, turn it off again and insert the battery. All should be well.

EMachine T2824 does not turn on. Power cord/power supply seems O.K.


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.
