I would test the memory. Also I think some computers will shut down if the fan on top of the CPU quits working. Or maybe one of the other fans or the Hard Drive quit and is drawing too much juice causing the PSU to shut down. It sounds like something may be grounding.

Green light on my power supply stays lit after unplugging


Usually the light will time out after the capacitor has drained. Your machine is getting a bit old , your PSU may be the problem. If you plug it in and push the on/off button and it blinks, fans spin and shuts down, it's most likely the PSU. Look for a in-line fuse on the Motherboard, if blown, replace. Look at the motherboard closely for damaged components, capacitors, etc.

1. Is there a GREEN blinking light on the motherboard?
2. Check you BIOS setting. These motherboards have software installed to check voltage readings to and from the motherboard.

Computer won't boot - fan on cpu does not run - cd drive does not power up -


Hi.

If there is no sign of life, then it is usually a power supply problem. Check PSU connector. If PSU fan does not turn on check the power cable. If power cable is good, test power from PSU using a multimeter and eventually replace PSU.

Even if those things power up doesn't mean your PSU is still good.
In particular the PSU in eMachines are known to be cheap/bad and one of the first things to go out.

If you have access to one try another ATX power supply.
You don't have to remove the old one just to test.

1) Unplug the existing PSU power cable from the back.
2) Remove all it's connections (MB, drives, etc).
3) Plug the other PSU in with just the two MB connections (the main, and 12v one), skipping any drives for now.
It's probably ok if the test one is not touching, but I like to put the PC on the side with the test PSU setting on top where the original one is making sure it has good contact with the case to make sure it's grounded.
4) Now plug the AC into the test PSU and power it up.

If it still dosn't power up it's probably MB, or CPU.
You could also unplug it again (you always want to unplug the PSU when doing anything, the power is always on), and try removing any add on cards (like your wireless card), and try again.

If it does power up (you get a POST screen), unplug PSU again, now plug-in drives, then AC back and see if it will boot up.

T2862 wont work -no power goes to it.


emachine?
is it new?
if its not, then check the power supply, there should be a green light on the back of the unit. if this is yellow or not lit at all then the problem is your PSU

crack the case and make sure the PSU cables are connected properly
also while your in there check for swollen capacitors or dust

Same problem


I would try to replace the PSU and see if that makes your computer boot. Do like a guess and check. If its not the PSU, maybe try a new motherboard. Does the computer not boot, or does it beep when turned on? I hope this helps solve your problem

Upgrade to a new motherboard?


I think there may be another issue.. It could be the power supply.. Have you tried a new one?

Have you installed any additional ram lately?

You can use the old XP software with a new motherboard, but it can be a pain in the **** to set-up if it is the OEM version of Windows, or a Recovery Disk that came with your machine..

What you could do, if you bought another motherboard, find someone with a Genuine Windows XP disk, and use your Product Key to install it..
