Hi,

It is entirely possible that the power switch itself has come loose from the case, actually inside the case where it is normally held in place by some type of clip, or even silicone "goo". You may be pressing the button on the outside of the case, but the actual, switch is not being pressed.

You can sometimes see if this is the problem from the side of the front panel, other times you will have to remove the front of the case and verify that the actual switch is in its proper position and held in place.

My computer won't turn on. I cleaned the Air spinner thing, checked the mother board, and everything was fine. The computer is an Emachines T2824. Can i have some assistance on how to get it to turn on?


If the machine is doing nothing at all when you press the power button, chances are your Power Supply Unit (PSU) has failed. If this is the case, the only way to fix it, is to get a new PSU.

Need picture of mother board for Emachine C2825


I've built a PC myself, each connector had text on it to say what it was and one arrow on it in relief, don't know wether that indicated plus or minus anymore.
Anyway, I recommend you just plug them in, and try to boot the PC. If it doesn't boot, switch the Power SW connector around, then it should boot. Do the same with the LED connectors, and it should work just fine!

Good luck,
Yannick.

Emachine t2824 board diagram


Here is the diagram that shows you how to hook up the wires:

http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/284ECAC.png

If you still have no video then reseat the memory one stick at a time in one slot at a time.

If you still have no video then reseat the cpu into its slot.

If still no luck try a different stick of RAM by trying it one slot a time.

Last step, unhook the power connectors from your device so the only power connectors that are connected are the power to the motherboard and the p4 connector to the motheboard. Also make sure your power supply is set to 115v. Its the red switch on the back of the power supply.

If none of this works, then the motherboard is bad. Hope this information helps.

Mother board problem ,and i dont wana buy a new 1!


IN order for the machine to power up properly. make sure you have correct memories specified by the motherboard manufacturer.
insert them as instrcited and connected a VGA (analog-old stype) monitor to the 15 pin connector. and power it up.
if it comes up great, continue with what ever you are going to do. if not, post back in this thread.

If everything is working properly, then yes, those lights are normal. Many motherboards have LEDs on them to show standby power. You probably didn't notice them until you worked on the thing.

Emachine T3828 power switch connection to motherboard


The "Ultra Helpful Instructions" that Emachines provide (here: http://downloads.emachines.com/userguides/8511279_eM_NG3_chassis_HW_ref_en.pdf) state that when replacing the system board, "18. Attach all cables to new system board", but fails to say where that would be for each cable.

The site below says it's a genuine Intel board in there, so, congrats on that. http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket478/D845GVSR.shtml

And with that, the link to the manual:
ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GVSR/SR_English.pdf

You're looking for the info on page 32, I believe.

See if that fixes it up. If not, post back.

Intel emachine t3828


Geeze, after working on hardware for 27 years i love the short circut dummie. Anyway yes, it's the motherboard / yes the green light will still come on on that model and quite a few other models. Dont worry about repairing / i.e. removing components on the motherboard, it's a fruitless endevor but a great way to waste time. A motherboard for that model will cost about 100-150 bucks / easy replacement. It's actually rare for both the power supply and mother board to go out on a tower/mini tower type system. Older laptops had that type of prob. Those emachines were **** for the mostet part. On the other hand Gateway has really gone up in quality and i have been quite impressed with them in the last few years...
