    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.

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.

Cant get any picture through the moniter tryed agp vidieo card and pci vidieo card still nothing the motherboard is out of emachines c2280 L7VMM2


Sounds like you have a bad power supply or motherboard. The power supplies in eMachines are not known for reliability, so try testing the system with another one. If you still have no video, you should replace the motherboard.

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.

Power Supply for L7VMM2


well,if you are sure that the new power supply is new and ok,than more than sure,if you dont have any response from the mainboard,that it is damaged by the high tension who allready burned your initial power supply.
I suggest you to visit a specialised service because for now its nothing you can do more.but first be sure you have a quite functional new power supply.
bye

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.
