Power supply unit

I have an emachine m2352 series... I recently had to purchase another power supply cord for it, but it is for a toshiba, it works, but I'm wondering if it will overheat and burn my computer. When purchased the unit said it was compatible with my model computer, but I don't know if the problem is with my computer, or if the cord just doesn't fit properly. What should I do?

Inside I smell something burning and my power port is loose.


Your Notebook PC needs a new power supply or at least a new power port, or it may self-destruct really soon (like tonight). Unplug your PC and quickly backup your important data to a flash drive.

I wouldn't plug anything into the power port until it gets service, and unplug it overnight (or there could be a fire).

The owners' manual doesn't describe power supply replacement:

I have an emachine that is 5 years old. Always


YOUR PSU (POWER SUPPLY UNIT) MAYBE THE CULPRIT. If the power to your cable which fits the computer is ok, then the supply unit is usually at fault. You can buy these pretty cheaply on ebay and they are very easy to fit, or if you are not into that find a mate who can! beleive me... its pretty easy.

How to replace power supply?


Toshiba model 57H93 worked perfectly last night. Turned off and went to bed. Turned on this morning, and nothing, it won't turn on. Checked all cords and cables, pushed reset button, and still won't turn on. What could cause this to happen?

Emachines t5230 & no power Working fine one day and then no power the next?


Your eMachines features the cheapest power supply in the industry. I have personally replaced 6 of these. You can replace it with a factory unit for $20 or go to your local compter shop, and get a $40 unit that will last until you need a new computer.

( It says... 480Ws but I dont believe it )

$20:

What power supply is in the et1161-07? I am looking to upgrade the graphics card to a nvidia 9500, 9600, or 9800. They all require different wattages.


The power unit in question is a 250W supply unit. Nvidia series 9800 cards require 580W, the 9600 series require 300 - 400W, and 9500 series require 350W. All of these will require a new power unit. Antec is a more than adequate. Any computer shop should have a 600W unit for $100.00.

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.

Mx35 no power


Hi, can you use a multimeter? If so then check on the power suply what the voltage output should be for that unit. Then with the power turned on GREAT CAUTION MUST BE TAKEN AT THIS STAGE AS TESTING THE WRONG END COULD CAUSE ELECTROCUTION use the meter to test the laptop end plug only and see what power output you have. If you can not do this then take the power supply to a technician and have it tested. If ok = dead battery, if not replace power unit. Regards mistyman

My E-machines laptop's internet connection is slow via Wi-Fi. My e-machines laptop does not connect to the internet at full speed when on the Wi-Fi network however on Ethernet it will connect at its full speed. Now I know Wi-Fi does tend to be slower than direct cable connection however I do have other laptops in the house and they all produce the following results on broadband speed tests on the internet: E-Machines laptop: 4.7 Mbps (seems to cap out at this speed) Other laptop(s): 5.7 Mbps This only happens in my home network because if I take my E-machines elsewhere to other networks it can reach higher speeds. So that rules out that something is wrong with my Wi-Fi adapter built into it. I currently have At&t U-Verse service with a 6 Mbps internet service with a 2Wire Router/Modem Gateway. I had a technician from At&t come out and he checked the router and said it was fine nothing wrong with it. He checked the internet line and indeed I am receiving the full internet speed. His very own laptop connected to the Wi-Fi and received 5.7 Mbps just fine. The interesting thing is that previously when I had At&t FastAccess Dsl with the 6.0 Mbps service as well, I would receive via Wi-Fi on this very laptop 5.2 Mbps however, in that case that is what every other device would receive as well because the internet speed coming into the home was about 5.6 Mbps max because of the Dsl tech. So all in all, what could be going on with my computer that is causing it to max out a full Megabit lower than all the other devices connecting to the same network??? I am running Windows XP with all the updates, no issues with the computer such as Viruses or AdWare either. P.S. I've used both Speedtest.net and Speakeasy broadband tests on all the laptops tested (even the iPhone and iPod Touch).
