Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
My daughter has an E-Machine desktop (T3626). It just went out of warranty and the fan had been noisy. Now the fan isn't moving at all and it's powering up and shutting right down? Is that a power supply issue? If so, can she fix it herself? ...and how???
Yes absolutely it is the power supply and EMachines have a reputation of using less than great power supplies. Do not turn it back on as it may cause damage to motherboard components. Now as for as getting a new one they are not expensive. FIrst you have to open the case and see what the wattage is on the current one..then go to a website like TigerDirect or NewEgg and order a new one. They are not hard to disassemble or assemble. Just a few screws and unplug some wires. So anyone comfortable with working with computers or electronics can do it....the only tricky part is remembering where to plug all the wires back into. So no big deal, order one with overnight shipping, an hour to install and she should be back up running by early next week. If you have any questions please let me know.

Before you buy anything for this model PC, be sure to take the time to open the case and check the capacitors on the motherboard. They should be flat topped. If any of them look bumpy on the top they are bad and it's the cause of your PC shutting off. "Especailly the capacitors right next to the processor". Either call emachines for a board replacement, buy a new board or throw it in the trash were it belongs..
