    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.

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

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

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.
