    The first time I paid someone at a computer store to fix it for me, he is the one who said it went out before, about 2 yrs ago....but I have been "tinkering" with this one since and had to replace my CD burner, and It looked to be kind of a simple task to change it out....Well it "died" again, and so I bought a brand new power supply from CompUSA...Bought the exact one that was in it...and changed it out but I had undid some of the plugs prior to getting it, and couldn't remember unplugging the SATA plug...and it didn't power up, So I was afraid I may have "forgotten" where to plug it...

    You are not going to believe this...The outlet I was using wasn't working!! As an after thought I changed outlets and plugged into a different one...Viola!! It is fixed!!

Just because it has a SATA plug doesn't mean you'll need it- especially if your machines a few years old. If your hard drive doesn't have the sata connections, then you probably won't use it.
As to why it still won't power up- how did you determine your last power supply was dead? Did you happen to switch out with a known good one? There is the slim chance the new one is ****- bad out of box. Any of your friends have a power supply tester or can you buy one? They are cheap- about $20. A good investment if you help others out as well.

    When you attempt to power it up, does the fan in the power supply spin? Any sign of activity at all?

    HA! An obvious troubleshooting method I failed to mention. My thanks to you for reminding me of the obvious.

Your problem would not be with a battery, but the power supply. Try plugging into a different outlet just to make sure, but sounds like you may need a new power supply.

Emachine wont start


remove all external and internal peripherls.

example for external: mouse, monitor, keyboard, printer.

Internal: hard drive, memory modules, video cards, modem (if there's any), optical drive or dvd drives.

just leave the motherboard, power supply and processor intact, try turning on the computer with out those components mentioned. see if you get a beep sound before it turns off, but if not the most logical part that needs to be replaced on this type of problem is the power supply if that doesn't work the next thing to do is replace the motherboard. hope that helps


hit me back on the results. thanks!

Emachine flashing yellow lights, fans power up when P8 is unplugged


Did some research and found this site which will tell you which pins to test. It is possible also that its not powerful enough for the devices you have. I would try again only giving power to the motherboard pins, of coarse and the hard drive. If works then plug one device at a time.
Good luck

Need wiring diagram for emachines t2200 motherboard


If you are replacing the power supply and it has 4 pin 12v conector and your motherboard doesn't, just disregard the 4 pin plug. The 20 pin conector will supply sufficient power for the processor. Many of the older motherboards did not have a separate 12v supply for the processor.

First check to see if a drive died. Unplug all the drive Floppy, hard and dvd or burns. I have come across many time that a drive will die and keep motherboard from booting. Being that you say you get a green light on the motherboard shows that the power suppy is providing some power. But for some reason the internal self test is faulting the power suppy. I have not come cross any bad power supplies killing a motherboard. But I have come across power supplies killing drives. The power switch is a normal open switch so the only time you be able test continuity on it is if you hold the switch in, or the closed position.
