Will not turn on.

My e-machine model number t2984 will not turn on when the power button is pressed. We just bought a new power supply and nothing changed. the machine simply has no response to the power button. no beeps, no fan movement, nothing. I reset the bios jumper, and the cmos. Please help!

Did you try bypassing the switch?

To do so:

  1. Remove the case
  2. Follow the wire from the power switch to the motherboard
  3. Remove the wire from the 2 pins
  4. Use a screw driver and touch both pins at the same time, creating a connection

That would be the equivalent of switching the computer on, if it powers on then you know the switch is bad and just need to replace it. If it does not turn on I would be 99% sure it is the motherboard as you already swapped the power supply.

I have a emachines t2984 i press the power button and doesnt turn on i replaced the power supply with different ones and nothing and the light turns on (power button) but the when i press the button the...


Ok, test the power button pins. First disconnect any power source to the computer. Then, find the power pins on your motherboard (the one that your case's power button connects to. Usually two wires, one red and the other black). Grab a jumper a connect it to those two pins, they usually have the letters "pwr" or "power" printed next to them. Then, once you've done this, with the jumper connected, connect the power cord to your power supply. It should turn on by it self. If it does, then the problem is the power button. If it does not do it, then the problem is the motherboard. Good luck.

Computer won't boot up/// turn on///monitor is blank


check the main power cord that plugs into the wall socket. try a known good power cord. Also, try holding the power button down for 10 seconds and try to power it back up.

Emachine T3624 will not power up


Emachines are notorious for having faulty power supplies. If your lucky you just need to replace the power supply. I've seen a lot of them where the power supply also fried the motherboard.

Please don't forget to rate this solution.

Pushing the start button and nothing happens on my emachine T2984


I think your power supply has gone bad and will need to be replaced. You can get a 500 watt power supply for about 60 bucks and you can replace it yourself. very easy

Dead motherboard on emachines t2984


I hope that you took it back to them.
Have them check the power supply, too. Besides, a bad power switch and connections that would be the only thing that would be keep it from starting.
