Emachines W2888 not turning on

I have an emachines W2888, about 4 ½ years old. One day it shut off on it’s own, and I haven’t been able to get it back on since. I checked the power connection, the cord, replaced the power supply and the cpu fan, but it still will not go on. Neither of the fans go on and it doesn’t sound like there is power to the hard drive. When the power cord is plugged in, I do, however, see a very tiny green-colored LED light lit on the top of the motherboard, so there is obviously some sort of power getting through. What should I try next?

    How do I know if the power supply is bad? If I plug in the power supply to an outlet, with none of the power cords connected in the computer, should the power supply fan come on?

Easy fix! Sounds like you bought a bad Power supply. Purchase an identical p.supply and it will run like a car!

    The power supplt will be bad if you hook it up to your motherboard with all the proper cables connected and once you press the power button the computer should kick on. If not it's the power supply there's a small posiblility it could be the power button/switch on your computer. If you plug the power supply in on it's own and the green led light goes on that is also an indication that the power supply is working. Easy Fix!

Help. my laptop is not working. i turned it on this morning but it suddenly turnoff then i turn it on again and its not working.


The main problem these days are that people are putting windows 7 on desktops and laptops that are 4 to 6 years old. They don't have the video card that is capable nor fast enough to care that OS. So go back to the system it came with and the problem will go away, or buy a newer computer.

Try to disconnect the cables connected to the mother board from your power supply then put it back in, then remove the CMOS battery and put it back in then try to turn the computer on..If it's still the same this means you need to purchase a new power supply.

3 YEAR OLD SANYO DP 32746. SHUT ITSELF OFF, CAN NOT TURN BACK ON


If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.

Emachines W2888 will Not Start up


Most likely the system board has failed. If the power supply had blown it is not unusual for the subsequent spike to blow the system board. On the other hand it may have been the system board that failed and the PSU is ok. Emachine system boards are rubbish

Either way you will need a new board and most likely a reinstall of the OS
