Question about E-Machines T2792 PC Desktop
My Emachines T2792 keeps freezing intermittently, the hard drive light stays on and the system freezes. I tried making sure the CPU was cool enough but it didn't seem to help. I also tried replacing the hard drive and reloading everything, it helped for about a day and the same problem occurred. Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks!
My T2792 did the same thing.I took off the cover, and found that if I just barely touched the power supply connector to the MB, it would lock up, or shut off.I used a small screwdriver to tighten the contacts on the plug from the power supply, and the problem disappeared.I jammed the screwdriver along each connector on the plug from the supply to tighten each contact.

You may have a hardware problem of some sort. The first place I'd start is to check the power supply voltages. If one or more voltages is off tolerance, this will cause all sorts of symptoms. if you have a voltmeter check especially the +5, +3.3, +12, & +5 standby voltages. Use this site as a reference http://pinouts.ru/Power/atx_v2_pinout.shtml If the supply checks out faulty, buy a replacement, or, if tech savvy, you might repair it-- probable component defects= one or more electrolytic capacitors. Other possible problems are Memory errors (try subbing a RAM stick), hard drive developing errors, or a bad chip on the motherboard. If you have some spare parts, RAM, hard disk, you can try subbing parts and narrow down the problem.
