Question about E-Machines System Power Supplies

1 Answer

My W3052 e-machine shuts off with a two tone alarm...dee-doooo-deee---doooo-deee----dooo coming from the tower. Only unplugging the main power cord will stop the alarm. Then I can reboot.. From on line research I'm thinking the Power supply needs replaced. What kind do I need, can I order it on line and would it be difficult for me to replace?

It sounds like it could be your power supplie but with your description still hard to be sure.
the power supplie is fairly easy to replace.most come with directions.
start by unplugging all your power connectors inside the tower.then remove the four screws in the back your done.replace in reverse order.
your machine if it has a stock video card will not need more than a 500 watt power supplie,if you have upgraded the videocard you will need to check with the manufacterer of the card.
if your not sure whats wrong,you could always buy one from bestbuy.if thats not your problem, they will take it back no question asked.

Computer turns ON but there is no display?


Drain it! You might be surprised that one day as you turn your computer on, it shows no display. It can be caused by electrical charges on the motherboard, I do not specifically know how it affects the display but in case this happens to you try to do a Power Drain. It's easy, first, take the battery out from the laptop and unplug the AC Adapter if it is connected(for desktops, unplug power cord from the CPU/tower) then press and hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds. plug power supply back into your system and turn it back on. There goes your display once again.

Power cord connects but it is loose and will not charge without constant pressure. Is there a part I can buy or something to fix it


1/ Find a tape
2/ Wrap the tape around the plug 2 -3 rounds.
3/ Trim off the redundant tape, to make it neat (as in the picture)
4/ Plug in to see if it works
You may add more rounds if it is still loose.

Tower problems


You may need to replace the cmos battery, its a cr2032 3v button cell
Make sure all your expansion cards and memory are reseated.
Make sure all cables are reseated.
your power supply could be bad

If that doesn't work try this


Here is my fix for the dell dimension 4400 amber light problem. It works!
replace cmos battery.
then unplug power cord form wall about 5-10 secs.
then plug it back in, wait 5 secs.
If amber light comes on, press and hold power button until it goes out.

(with light out, press and hold power button while amber light comes on and goes off again holding power button 2-3 secs after light goes out.) repeat whats in parenthesis until computer turns on
it should only take about 6, 7 tries.

After the computer boots, you may want to setup cmos or boot into windows.
After you shutdown, unplug power cord for 5-10 secs then plug it back in.
Press and hold the power button, computer should come on.
I found that's the only way to turn on the computer.
If you shutdown and don't unplug power cord the computer may not boot, mine didn't.
Strange I'd say

T5026 won't start up


Unplug the power cord, open the computer and disconnect all the power cables (the cables going from the power supply to motherboard and drives). Then reconnect the power cord and see if the light on the PSU comes on, if so disconnect the power cord and plug in the motherboard connectors and continue connecting components one by one to determine which may be the problem. If no power light with everything disconnected then the PSU needs replaced.
