    Disconnect the hard drive and any other drives that are hooked up.

    reseat the CPU but also make sure you only have the CPU, memory & Power Supply hooked up. nothing else should be hooked up or in any of the pci or AGP slots on the motherboard.

    Have you tried reseating the memory into the slots? Try each slot with each memory stick one at a time and see if you can get it to come back on with video.

When turning on my emachine desktop the monitor states no signal someone suggested that I need a fuse, Where would that fuse be located?


hello if the monitor wanted a fuse .. then it wont turn on.. which means its getting power !!!
you problem is the pc ,or monitor cable fell out at the back of pc, or you may have a defective memory stick ,that if the pc is getting power and you are seeing light on the pc.. if the pc is dead nothing lighting.. no beeps, not even the optical not opening then you have a power supply problem,
if u had a surge be it went dead try this, unplug system for 5 mins, the plug it back in, try powering on.. if still nothing , most likely , memory,video card or power supply is defective, but i think. its your memory if getting power

EMachine T6522 monitor says "no signal input" when turned on. tower switch light on and motor seems to be running. Nothing but above message on monitor. Checked both ends of cable and unplugged tower and...


This could be an issue of a video card gone bad. I have experienced the same issue firsthand. This could also mean that no RAM is installed. If you have been using this computer previously, the second option is probably not even an option.

If you have another computer available, please try plugging the monitor in to that machine to test. If it works, your Video Card is more than likely toast.

But not to worry, you should be able to find a new card for that machine. I believe it will be a PCI Video Card, which may run you anywhere from $20-$100 depending on what you purchase. Please consult with eMachines before ordering a new card. Some will not work with your machine.

I hope this helps you out. Have a great day and please don't hesitate to ask any further questions regarding this issue.

The yellow power led light blinks on front of the emachine w2646. The CPU Fan works. The power button will not turn the PC on or off, you just have to plug in the power cord to turn it on. The monitor just...


Did you flash the main board ??

1.) remove battery
2.) press and hold the power button for 10 - 30 seconds
3.) replace battery.
4.) when the system boots it will say press XX (e.g F2) to load defaults and continue ,, press that key.

It could also be the power button is stuck!.

find were it connects to the main boad and unplug it
bridge the 2 pins it jacks into to turn the computer on. if it works u will need to replace that button or the case.

Nothing on my Emachines computer will turn on.


I would recommend rechecking your connection to the motherboard. All wires from the power supply to board and making sure the front panel switch connection are correct. Also, make sure the power supply is compatible to the motherboare. even though a 20-Pin ps will connect to a 24-Pin board, it still does not work. Good Luck

Wont power up


If you are getting absolutely nothing, and it seems you have checked all the obvious, then I guess its just the board given up

Monitor stays black


best guess is the monitor is bad. Try replacing the monitor first.

NO POWER AT ALL!


Does the power supply have its own power switch?

It is located next to where the power wire plugs into the back of the PC.
