    If you don't get any video off the mother board or out of the expansion card i'm sorry to say but it is time for a new motherboard

    Well this is what i found. I looked at a forum (link below) and it seems the power supply unit in these computers are troublesome and may have caused you some problems. I would follow the directions given in the forum. I do think that when your last power supply failed it took the motherboard with it. Again try what is listed and let me know if anything works for you

    On the eMachine C2280, that light is merely an "on" light... showing that your power supply is plugged in

    Is your video integrated or do you have a video card.

    is the video card integrated in the motherboard?

    I'm not sure what the red light is, May i ask why you rebuilt the computer in the first place?

    Does your computer beep when it tries to boot?

Anytime. Just in case you there is any way you can get video to display. There is a setting in bios to change what controls the display adaptor. You might want to try to reset your bios and see if you can change this setting. Figure there is nothing you can hurt at this point.

Just remove the "watch battery" that is on the motherboard for a couple minutes and try to start the computer. Also you might want to look for some pins on the board that say something about bios reset jumpers. Normally you short the two pins then remove and boot. Sometimes you short-boot-shutdown-unshort-boot again.
I'm thinking though if you can get in there you can set your display to pci or agp or whatever kind of video card you have.

Dell 3100 will not power up


Hardware issues: (most likely the motherboard)

Start by removing:
Ram Chip one by one. See if it will change anything (if it doesn't put that back in)
Cd Drive
Hard drive
Anything else (video card, PCI components)

The monitor has no input signal, tried another monitor and had the same result


This could be an issue of a video card gone bad. I have experienced the same issue firsthand. This could also mean that no RAM is installed. If you have been using this computer previously, the second option is probably not even an option.

If you have another computer available, please try plugging the monitor in to that machine to test. If it works, your Video Card is more than likely toast.

But not to worry, you should be able to find a new card for that machine. I believe it will be a PCI Video Card, which may run you anywhere from $20-$100 depending on what you purchase. Please consult with eMachines before ordering a new card. Some will not work with your machine.

I hope this helps you out. Have a great day and please don't hesitate to ask any further questions regarding this issue.

I replaced installed additional RAM in my eMachine T4510 but it wouldn't complete POST. Removed the new RAM and re-installed the factory-original RAM and it still wouldn't complete POST. Removed all RAM...


In your motherboard there will be a CMOS battery remove that battery and put it again you will get the display in your monitor, the battery will be in coin size the battery is CR2032.

No boot, New PS, Green light on MB lights, No Fans running


Bottom line: Either your power supply or (hopefully not) the mother board has gone bad.
Replace power supply (remove old one), take to local independent computer shop, ask them for new unit. Should be around $50.00. - no more. After reinstall, if still no fans, boot, etc. Replace motherboard or buy a new machine. MB's installed probably will run you around $250.00-ish.
Good luck.

E-Machine T6216 PSU fan runs, computer will not boot


It is the power supply. EMachines have a long history of using cheap power supplies. I have replaced over a dozen EMachine power supplies with a 100% success rate. They are easy to replace and can be had for less than $20. Just write down the model number and take that to a computer parts store or remove the power supply and take that with you. Steve

Can not power up


To my personal experience eMachine MB's dies a slow aggravating death. I have had 2 that went janky and would take about 15 power up tries to boot. Probably the situation you are in now.

Did the power supply you had go bad? I seem to recall a bit of an issue with some older machines in the 2k series that when the Power supply died it took out the MB with it.

No display


Try swaping your memory with a known good stick of ram.
Are you sure your monitor is good? Video cables?
Try changing (if pci) slots when installing video card.
Other than these 3 things the only pretty sure thing is; sorry, mother board or cpu.

Emachine T2984 won't power up


First, Check your ram. If not seated, it will not power up. Also, do you hear a series of beeps or not? Need a better & more exact description of problem and what occurs

E machine no power


Make sure the RAM is seated, the CPU, any video card and the Power supply is properly connected.

If you power it on, still get no POST (beep at startup from the PC speakers) its time to replace the motherboard.
