EMachine T1742, T2862 & T2958 Bad Power supply, bad mootherboards

This seems to be a common problem with eMachines. The power supplies I can replace, but I would like to repair the motherboards. I would like to obtain schematics for Trigem Imperial- GL, and Intel D845GVSR motherboards and troubleshooting guide if available. I replaced the visualable bad capicators on the D845GVSR motherboard with no joy. HELP!!!

I agree with Ekse. Replacing caps is a waste of time...what's to say that the damaged caps didn't cause other damage to the motherboard. Sure, you can save a little money but as you've already found out just replacing the caps don't always work.

Well this is just my take on the problem, and feel free to click on the repost button to get more opinions from people around here but.

I haven't seen a single service manual for a motherboard and when I worked at a Pc repair shop we never repaired motherboard we replaced them. So as far as I know not available but I will look into it and if your not satisfyed with my solution go ahead and click repost.

    I'll give you my honest opinion about this:

    The motherboard which has these issues is faulty from the factory they will all fail eventually, so you are trying to repair a product that will fail again. You would save money and time to move to another motherboard.

Where can I find the fuse to replace it, because my cd rom and DVD recorder won't turn on. I opened it to remove dust and I must have hit something, I also forgot to unplug it. Can you Help Please???


With it UNPLUGGED, check all connections to and from the main power supply. The multi connectors are not hard to dislodge and you will probably find one of them has partially come out of its socket. I don't think PC power supplies have a fuse in them.

How to take pictures off dead emachine


The hard drive must still be working to get the pictures off. The best thing to do is remove the hard drive from the machine and use either an external USB type case to mount the drive into so you can use another computer to explore the drive or there is a tool that just plugs on to the drive with a USB cable and power supply built in that will serve the same purpose. You must get the appropriate type to match the drive type which could be either IDE or SATA. SATA drives use the small cable and IDE use the wide ribbon. If the hard drive is not working, you would have to get specialized and expensive company to retrieve the data from the drive.

How can you check a computer power supply. (Emachines T1742) Shouldn't you be able to do that with a volt/amp meter? Do you have to short two connector pins to simulate the computer on-off switch?


In order to turn it on if the motherboard wont do it yes, you have to short out the green and a black wire for it to turn on. Volt meter is handy to check for proper voltages: 12v, 5v, 3.3v, also should be test when the computer is under full load. It is also recommened to check for bad capictors on all computer compentents including the power supply. Usually on store bought computers the power supply starts to give out, and the caps buldge, and if its left unfixed it causes caps in other places to go out. If there are caps bulding on the power supply and/or other stuff, buy new capictors of the same voltage and same or slightly higher UF rating, I recommend Rubycon or Nichon from badcaps.net. Hope this helped.

Will not power up


This is a common problem with Emachine motherboards, the problem is the power supply is a best tech and allows voltage surges to the motherboard which fries it too. If available you usually have to replace both the power supply and motherboard. I do not know what exactly goes bad on the motherboard but I have replaced many emachine power supplies and motherboards. The motherboard kit which used to be available from Emachines included a power supply and no warranty if you didn't change the power supply. They knew they had a problem.

MY BROTHER JUST GAVE ME THIS MOTHERBOARD FOR MY EMACHINE AND SAID IT CAME OUT OF AN EMACHINE, WHAT POWER SUPPLY DO i NEED TO INSTALL? Intel D845EPI Motherboard


i have seen those in some emachines but the original power supply stinks the processor needs a power supplie the has at least 300 watts but 400 plus is a better choice depending on which emachine case to have it might need ti have the case modded to fit a larger power supplie some emachine case have a plate mounted the allows both power supplie type to be used the small power supplies are garbage so go with the larger p4 power supplie most all should be able to be modded to fit in you case. Just remember the more power in mean the more power out.

Emachines 390 blinking led but no image


The problem could be many thing. Does it beep ? Can you see a white blinker on the upper left corner of the screen ? If you answer no for both questions, it coulb be the internal memory (ram) that is defect or even just dusty. But many other things could cause that. you can go to the link below and chat with a eMachine technicien.By the way when you try to turn off the computer, hold the power button until the computer shuts down.

Cant get any picture through the moniter tryed agp vidieo card and pci vidieo card still nothing the motherboard is out of emachines c2280 L7VMM2


Sounds like you have a bad power supply or motherboard. The power supplies in eMachines are not known for reliability, so try testing the system with another one. If you still have no video, you should replace the motherboard.

W2646 crapped out


Some eMachines computers (like many from Dell) use a non-standard pin out for their power supplies, so if you try a standard ATX power supply it may not function.

However, in my experience it IS likely to be the motherboard. Luckly I have been able to replace quite a few of the eMachines mobos with a standard mATX mobo, since you can probably remove the IO plate. You'd certainly want to replace the power supply when doing so.
