E-machine wont power up

I have a t2885 e-machine and it power up. I think the problem may be the power supply. Could their be something else that would cause this proble. Also in what order should the power led, and other connectors be in on this machine?

    E-machine 2885 will not power up. The main switch is not functioning, and the fans at the power supply (ATX-250-12E) or the CPU are not on.
    I have disconnected all connectors to hard drive, CD-R/W and DVD players, but to no avail. The green LED on the mother board is lit on.

Your power supply is fried. I had the same problem with my Bestec ATX 250 power supply. I fixed the problem by installing the StatTech model: ATXPOWER250. It was easy to install and works well. It is almost identical to the original but more quiet. I got it for $29 at MicroCenter.com. Also at online Newegg.com, Radioshack.com, Provantage.com, June 20,2009

Shut down the system, disconnect every thing you

can possibly disconnect.

Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.

Reconnect A/C power and try to boot up.

If no change, open case, disconnect all cables to the CD/DVD and hard drives. Reconnect power

and try to turn on again.

If still no go, remove all expansion cards (modem, NIC, video, etc.

Remove and reseat the RAM. If you get no power, remove the RAM and reconnect power to see if you get beeps from the system.

Let me know if you need to go further than this.

Hp pavilion slimline shut itself off and will not come back on.


Sounds like a power supply problem. Usually this occurs when
doing work that involves a lot of memory, and progressively gets worse.
It has something to do with the crowbar circuit that shuts the power supply whets overloaded; sometimes a trigger-happy SCR.
Life is a lot better if you use one of those Ebay power supply testers with an LCD display, but these testers don't draw enough current to trigger a potentially bad crowbar.
Best solution I can think of is purchase another ATX power supply 350w or more with the same dimensions. Pay attention to the lenght of the replacement ps to see if it's too long (front to back) to fit in your computer.
Hope this helps.

if it sparked then something inside the power supply malfunctioned and that is the reason it wont work. You will need to replace it. Unlikely that it fried your board in the process. You can test this by swapping the power supply with one that you know works.

I think the power supply is bad. the light on the front of tower is yellow and makes no sound when the computer is turned on. all three fans run.


No i don't think the power supply gone bad, as your decription says light on the front side is yellow and all the fans are running. This may due to RAM has been not been inserted properly or other hardware problems. Check all the connections of the hardware will resolve your problem.

Revert back for more assistance.

You need to make sure that the computer is booting to the cd/rom. I think on an e-machine that you have to hit F-10 when the big e-machine splash screen appears and then choose cd-rom.

Computer not powering up / no light at hard drive.. but power to machine


Ok...since there are lights..then it's most likely, not your power supply.'
We need a few questions answered so we can narrow it down to what it could be.

1. What operating system are you running, harddrive, ram, some computer specifications would help?
2. What was being done last, when the computer went out...it could possibly be a virus, so we need to find out if a file was opened up, or an email, things like that.....was there something installed...do any beeps beep when the computer starts up>

Let me know these things and we'll narrow it down to something solvable..

Thanks

Loud fan and wont turn on


power supply is probably shot and you are feeding a voltage way over what is needed. I have a dell that refused to operate one day. I went to www dot affordablesurplus dot com and found a 350 watt power supply with all the RIGHT plugs. Never had a problem since.
