E machine #2895 - won't correspond with a monitor and won't fully come on. Fan turns on but will not power up and the green light doesn't come on? Any suggestions?

    I tried a different monitor and got the same response - zilch! I did take the panel off the tower and I know the fans running but not at full speed and nothing else is working. I can't even shut down the cpu unless I unplug it

    The only fan working is the one on the motherboard. The fan on the power supply box is dead. Anyone know if it's possible to just buy a new or used power supply box and if so what the cost is?

Unplug the Monitor, and attempt to reconnect a seperate monitor to test. If that monitor works properly, then the problem is your regular monitor. If you do not have another monitor, Try unplugging the power from the wall jack to the tower. Then plug into another port, the reason the computer doesn't turn on is because the power outlet may be running but at a lower voltage then what is required for the computer to run at its full potential. If theese both fail, Try opening your computer and check if anything is blown out.

My emachine desktop tower will not power on


the sound you are hearing or heard could have been power surging through a powersupply unit that just blew.. hopfully it did not effect any of the other hardware..to trouble shoot this you can do one of two things..1 disconnect the 20/24 pin powerconnector from the motherboard 2 disconnect the cpu power connector 3 disconnect the 6pin power connector from the graphics card if there is one some machines have onboard video chipsets if thats the case then no worries 4 disconnect the Harddrive power 5 jump the power supply to see if you get any power from it any questions on that go to youtube and type in how to jump a power supply... or option 2 is buy a new power supply make sure its 80plus certified and replace it...i know its a lot of work but i hope this has helped you

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.


Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

Two monitors


You just need to get a video with dual monitor support , so that you can connect two monitor on that emachine tower , because basically emachine only came with a video card that you can only connect 1 monitor...

Hope that helps.............

Problems with computer booting into monitor


Install the driver for the monitor on your emachine? If you have a driver already installed, try reinstalling it or check that you have the latest version.
If you do not have the cd-rom with the driver, go to the monitor manufacturer's website and download the driver.
This should solve the problem :-)

My emachine desktop is not not coming on


I've owned nothing but e-machines towers for probably 9yrs. I've had this exact problem with two of them already. E-machines are notoriously known for power supply problems (which is usually about a $50 fix), but oddly enough the two problems I've ever had with the tower not powering up, resulted in being a problem with the motherboard. You can order another one, but it's VERY costly. Odds are that your info is still perfectly intact on your harddrive. When I experienced this problem, I removed the harddrive and installed it as a backup drive within a new tower. (I know you probably ask 'why keep buying them', but in my opinion, Gateway does a REALLY good job of keeping their "e-machines line" with up-to-date features and it's definitely hard to beat the low price!)

If you still have a perfectly functioning monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, etc, you may want to consider buying just a new tower (approx $250-$400 depending on brands)
