Emachine tower won't turn on

Hello,
I have an Emachines desktop. I have checked that there is power to the case, reseated the cables, there is a small green led that is lit up on the motherboard (Its always on) so I'm assuming its not my power supply.the power supply fan and the case and cpu fans start then all the fans stop with in seconds of start up,I jumped the molex connector and the PS fan will stay on.I tried jumping /shorting the two pins on the MB where the power switch connects and nothing.
But no matter what I do the computer will not turn on from the switch So do you have any Ideas?

First check the power supply or swap another.
remove ac power cable and clear the cmos jumper.
connect only power 20 or 24 connect and test power on. no off? (no video because no power to cpu by 4 pin or 6 pin connector)
plug 4 pin connector and test power on. if on and off check cpu power section (mosfets) if burned one pls remove ... you can test short by touch the mosfet by finger (burning heat)

Emachine ET1850 model when turn on no display picture.


Check ALL monitor cables, reseat connections. Have you done any hardware or software updates? Graphics Updates? Do you get anything at boot? Just no signal? It sound like a hardware issue, Graphics. Support for your machine can be found here: http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?modelId=2064 You could buy a PCI e x16 Graphic Card . Better ,faster Graphics. First, check VGA connections, reseat, check for bent pins. Try another cable and monitor, to verify.

Emachine T5234 beeps 5 times and won't turn on


5 Short BeepsYour motherboard is complaining. Try reseating the memory and rebooting. If that doesn't help, you should consider another motherboard. You could probably get away with just replacing the CPU, but that's not too cost-effective. Its just time to upgrade!

I have an emachines T1440 desktop. the front face of the machine is broken, the power cord, and the wires from the power cord to the power supply box. What type of case or tower can i use the remaining...


Luckily, eMachine uses a generic system board. You can purchase a case from any computer store. The only thing to watch for is the plate in the rear of the motherboard, make sure it matches your ports. Again I believe you can use the one from your eMachine.

Emachine t5026 on and right off


Hi maybe you could try these steps I'm always doing when I experience the same problem as yours. This is only according to my experience fixing desktop computers.

1. Try to disconnect all the connection at the back of your computer tower then press the power button of your computer for 15 seconds to drain the remaining power.

2. Reconnect only the power button and the monitor cable then turn it back on. (If the same thing happened go to step 4 if not go to step 3)

3. ( From step 2 ) If it turned back on, most probably the problem is one of the devices that you just disconnected is causing the problem. Try to reconnect then one-by-one and each time you connect them turn on your computer, let's check if it's gonna turn on or not, just proceed until you finish connecting all of the device or until you pin point the root cause of the issue.

4. (From step 2 ) If it didn't turn on, Open up your computer tower and reseat the video card, then turn on the computer

5. If still the same problem, remove your hard drive and turn on your computer, if it turned on, meaning that the hard drive might be the problem, if not, just put it back in

6. If still the same problem, remove the memories from your computer, if you have more than one memory installed remove them all, test the first memory to the 1st slot and to other slots one-by-one, see if it turned on. Test the second memory and so on, to the 1st slot and so on. Do it only with one memory testing each memory.

7. Reseat the power cord coming from the power supply, the 21 pin and also the small one that is plugged into your motherboard,

8. Reseat the CPU

9. If all of those things failed, most probably that the power supply is causing the problem. it's also possible that the motherboard is affected, I hope not.

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..
