I recently installed a new power supply and a D845GVSR motherboard in an eMachines PC. It now starts the fans, etc., but the monitor won't come out of sleep mode. I have tried to run the CD that came with the replacement motherboard, but the CD won't open also. Any ideas???

We have repaired many of these systems. The board was damaged when the power supply shorted. You can get replacement motherboards at www.barebonekit.net click on the link on the left side for motherboards and look for Emachine.
ELECTRIC SHOK OR IMPROPER EARTHING IS DAMAGE POWER SUPPLY,MOTHERBOARD,PROCESSOR,RAM
HOW TO CHECK IT.
(WHEN CHECKING KEEP CAUTION :- REMOVE HARD DISK DRIVE POWER SUPPLY SOCKET)
1. check power supply watt 400/450 and same another power supply install and check it. if power supply change and system is working ok so problem in your power supply.
2. check CMOS cell on motherboard,(3 volt)
3. Bfore power supply changing check on mother board any capasitor is like as damaged or not.
OR check main chipset ic is marked as intel.whenpower on it is very hitting or
normal)if very hitting require to repair your motherboard.(intel chipset ic near cmos cell or pci slot,)
4. checking of ram on other pc (working or not)(one beeps coming or not,if one beep coming ram is working ok)
The "Ultra Helpful Instructions" that Emachines provide (here: http://downloads.emachines.com/userguides/8511279_eM_NG3_chassis_HW_ref_en.pdf) state that when replacing the system board, "18. Attach all cables to new system board", but fails to say where that would be for each cable.
The site below says it's a genuine Intel board in there, so, congrats on that. http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket478/D845GVSR.shtml
And with that, the link to the manual: ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GVSR/SR_English.pdf
You're looking for the info on page 32, I believe.
if you can get past the POST properly and see the drive size, nothing is wrong with the drive hardware. I think XP is seeing a previous boot sector install so try first to fdisk, format and system boot the drive. This should remove any boot sector "shadows".
