It sounds like your motherboard has also fried. Whatever caused your power supply to burn up caused excessive voltage to go to your motherboard, and it will need to be replaced. There is a possibility that other things connected to your motherboard also fried such as the memory or cpu but you won't be able to determine that unless you replace the motherboard. In my professional opinion, it would be more cost effective to get a new computer at this point. Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya, since it answered your question; even if the news isn't very good. Thanks!

Connecting power supply to motherboard


Hi There

This guide was developed to instruct readers on the proper procedures for installing a power supply unit (PSU) into a desktop computer case. It includes step-by-step instructions with photographs for the physical installation of the PSU into a computer case.
IMPORTANT: Many name brand manufacturer PCs use specially designed power supplies that have been built specifically for their systems. As a result, it is generally not possible to buy a replacement power supply and install it into these systems. If your power supply is having problems, you will likely need to contact the manufacturer for repairs.
CAUTION: All power supplies contain various capacitors inside of them that retain power even after the power supply had all power turned off. Never open up or insert any metal objects into the vents of the power supply as you can risk electrical shock.
To start with installing a power supply, it is necessary to open up the case. The method for opening the case will vary depending upon its design. Most new cases use either a panel or door while older systems require the whole cover be removed. Be sure to remove any screws fastening the cover to the case and set them aside.
Align the new PSU into place in the case so that the 4 mounting holes align properly. Make sure that any air intake fan on the power supply that resides in the case is facing towards the center of the case and not towards the case cover.
Now comes one of the most difficult portions of the power supply installation. The power supply needs to be held in place while it is fastened to the case with screws. If the case has a shelf ledge that the power supply sits on, it will be easier to balance.
Make sure that the voltage switch on the back of the power supply is set to the proper voltage level for your country. North America and Japan use 110/115v, while Europe and many other countriesuse 220/230v. In most cases the switch will come preset to the voltage settings for your region.
If the computer already has the motherboard installed into it, the power leads from the power supply need to be plugged in. Most modern motherboard use the large ATX power connector that gets plugged into the socket on the motherboard. Some motherboards require an additional amount of power through a 4-pin ATX12V connector. Plug this in if required.
A number of items reside within a computer case that require power from the power supply. The most common device is the various hard drives and CD/DVD drives. Typically these use the 4-pin molex style connector. Locate the appropriate sized power leads and plug them into any devices that require power.
At this point all of the installation and wiring should be completed with the power supply. Replace the computer cover or panel to the case. Fasten the cover or panel with the screws that were previously removed to open the case.

sounds like you need a higher wattage power supply!! meaning if you have a 500 watt power supply and it burned up then you may need a higher wattage power supply!! try a 650 or 750 watt power supply. there is only 4 screws holding the power supply in place, just un-plug all internal power cables and remove the screws and do the reverse with a new power supply. please go slow the connecting internal power cables are keyed meaning that they only fit one way!!! DO NOT FORCE THE PLUGS INTO THEIR SOCKETS OR YOU WILL BLOW UP YOUR MOTHERBOARD!!! sorry for the caps!

Power supply


No.
If a power supply ends up in smoke, this usually is just bad luck (may of course be related to a bad design of the power supply or use of low quality components).

As for the BIOS settings: If you were messing around with certain overclocking settings (or are not sure if someone else did), it may be a good idea to use the "Reset to defaults" option. However, wrong BIOS settings rather may have an effect on the lifetime of motherboard and CPU but not on the power supply.

Just make sure that you use a power supply of sufficient wattage: 300W or 350W for a standard PC, somewhat more if you have a high end graphics card or many hard drives / optical drives.

First of all does your power supply smell of burning?.... if so than you need a new power supply, otherwise you may have blown you motherboard which may include your cpu.

Please let me know what you find and I may be able to help you.

ATX Power Supply Question


Most new power supplies have a twenty pin Molex connector and a 4 pin Molex connector. If you look closely at the connectors you will see that they go together a certain way. It can be very hard to tell. Take a close look at the shapes of each terminal. Match them up exactly.

My PC Will Not Start


Hi wah4pay,

this white USB plug has nothing to do with the eMachine not starting up. My guess about the white USB is it might be for your printer (If you have one). USB cable supplies 5volts DC only which it not enough to power a desktop or laptop PC.
As far as why the PC will not start, check the back side of the tower. See if the main power cable is plugged into the power supply & it also is plugged into a working wall outlet. There is a small RED slide switch on the back of the power supply. Make sure you can see the numbers & letter, 115v.
If the switch is set to 230v move it to 115v. Try starting the PC.
See this mini video of the T3646, you'll notice there are two USB ports on the back side of the PC & two more on the front of the case:
http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/emachines-t3646/4505-3118_7-32924902.html

If this is a new PC, it most likely came with a one year warranty. You should call eMachine for free support. Your documentation will provide a phone number for support.
If your eMachine is not new or no longer under warranty let me know by posting here & I'll give you some other possible suggestions that may help get the system to start. Please include the year bought & month

Intel D865PERLL Motherboard will not power up


Hi nkda2000, this is as close as I could find for power schematics. Intel D865PERL
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D865PERL/sb/CS-027143.htm

(There is no Intel D865PERLL board). Sure it's a typo. Have done searches for D865PERLL & found it (Not on Intle's web site) but when looking at the specs it's listed as D865PERL. (One L ) not two.

I hope the Technical Product Specification pdf can help you check the power on the motherboard.

Luck!

Mike

No respons at all !


I think your power supply cables is not able to start your B-board if your power supply is working properly then check mother board jack where you insert your power supply plug in M-board. Then you have to change or repair that jack where you insert power supply wire in M-board. With best regards M. Khalid Shaikh from Pakistan Mobile: +92-332-2631983
