Emachines T6528 power supply upgrade

I'd like to run Call of Duty 5 World at War on my eMachines T6528, but it only has a 300 watt power supply, so to upgrade to a better video card, I need to also upgrade the power supply. Is the power supply in the 6528 proprietary, or can I use any power supply?

E MACHINE W3118 KEEPS RESTARTING. TRIED TO ORDER A RESTORE DISK FROM EMACHINE, BUT THEY SAID IT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR THIS MODEL.


My advice is to not spend one penny on this computer. Unless you have upgraded it then it has only 256 MB of Ram, a slow Sempron processor, a small 300 watt power supply, small 80 GB hard drive, and it is running Windows XP which is an out of date operating system. Spend your money on a brand new Windows 7 computer and sell this one for scrap. You can get a computer that is 10 times better than this one for around $500.

Emachine total black , this are on fan


LED lights are on? Fans spin? I suggest you have a bad Power Supply.

1) eMachines are noted to have low quality Power Supply's.
Saves eMachines money so they can sell budget computers.

2) A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure. I have, (Had actually), a shop half full of computers with this 'ailment'.

Some caused by the owners never cleaned out the inside of their computer, nor the inside of the Power Supply, with a can of compressed air for computers on a regular basis as needed.

3 to 5 years without cleaning the inside of their computer.
Mice could have made nests inside easily, with the 'Gunk' that was there. A bald eagle could have too. Rant off.

Others, caused by the computer manufacturer used a low quality Power Supply.
Low quality components used inside.
One of the major components that fails, is caused by a particular Electrolytic Capacitor that is used.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

3) Power Supply's used in PC's are a type of SMPS.
(Personal Computer. Statement holds true no matter what type of personal computer it is)

[ SMPS = Switched-Mode Power Supply
PSU = Power Supply Unit
All terms relate to a Power Supply used in a PC ]

A bad Power Supply will have a weak voltage power rail.
There are three major power rails used in the ATX form factor Power Supply, for an eMachines T6420 desktop computer.

A) The 3.3 Volt power rail (DC)
B) The 5 Volt power rail (DC)
C) The 12 Volt power rail (DC)

(Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

A Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, may have enough power to light LED lights, and spin fans, (or spin a few times, ans stop), but won't have enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

eMachines T6420?
Uses an AMD Athlon 64 3400+, processor.
(Socket 939)

[The motherboard used is an MSI ms-7207
Also known as K8NGM2-L ]

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T6420

This Processor can use Up To 89 Watts.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_amd_athlon_64_processors#.22Newcastle.22_.28CG.2C_130_nm.29

No Processor running, No computer.
No computer = No Video Signal

Suggest using a KNOWN to be Good, Compatible power supply, for a test unit, if available.

Should be the ATX form factor.

Approximately 6 inches Long, (15.24cm), 6 inches Wide, (15.24cm), and 3-1/2 inches Tall. (8.89cm)

250 Watts.
Correct amount of power cables, and the correct type.

T6528 has no video. Using a working monitor, tried differnet video cards but still no video.


1) So you tested the monitor on a working computer? Reason I ask, is that you will be testing the monitor cable also.

If it is a monitor with a detachable monitor cable, suggest you test the cable also.

2) Each graphics (Video) adapter card has it's own specific driver.
The driver should be installed Before, the graphics card is installed.

Otherwise Windows will 'break it's neck', to find a compatible driver, from it's thousands of generic drivers.
Won't do. You will get a driver conflict.

Windows: 'Which driver do I use? These or THESE?"

Kinda' hard to do, since you can't see graphics on the monitor.

I would like to suggest you diagnose the Power Supply to start with. (After checking the monitor cable)

It may seem that the Power Supply is okay, but it could have a weak Voltage power rail.

Enough power to light LED lights, and spin fan's, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL the LED's use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.
(Lower for older Processors)

The eMachines T6528 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 3500+, processor, that fits in a Socket 939 processor socket,

1) eMachines Support > T6528 > Specifications,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T6528

2) Information on the AMD Athlon 64 3500+,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_64_microprocessors#Athlon_64

Can use up to 67 Watts, or up to 89 Watts. Depends on what Core it is.
(Clawhammer Core, Newcastle Core, Winchester Core, Venice Core, Manchester Core, or San Diego Core)

(Also uses an MSI K8NGM-L motherboard. Below for specifications only,

http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130041 )

A) Not to down eMachines, (I have an old T1090 in my shop that works great), but they are budget computers, and use budget parts.
One being the generic Power Supply that is used.

B) The computer could be dirty inside, as well as inside the Power Supply.

The cooling components for the SMPS, (Switched-Mode Power Supply,) are it's Fan, and Heatsink's used inside.

Once a layer of 'Gunk' covers these cooling components, the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

Heat = Wasted Energy

The more heat, the more the Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power.
Eventually hardware components inside the Power Supply fail, and the Power Supply is toast.

You can test the Power Supply voltages.
You can use a multimeter if available, or an economical unit can be purchased for around $5 to $12, that will suffice for testing.

You can also use a power supply tester.
One example:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5250576&CatId=5471

Voltages produced by the SMPS used in a T6528 are,
A) 3.3 Volts (DC)
B) 5 Volts (DC)
C) 12 Volts (DC)

Testing should be done on the 12 Volt power rail.
11 to 13 Volts indicates a good Power Supply.
Less than 11 Volts means it's time to replace.

Orange wires are 3.3 Volts
Red wires are 5 Volts
Yellow wires are 12 Volts.

All the color coded Voltage wires, lead back to one individual power rail, for each Voltage produced by the Power Supply.

You can test any Yellow wire to test the 12 Volt power rail.

With a multimeter, the Positive (Red) probe lead connects to the power wire to be tested.

The Negative (Black) lead connects to ANY Ground wire.

ALL Black wires are Ground wires.
They all go back to one central Ground source inside the Power Supply.

[Power Supply unplugged from power before attaching probe leads. After connecting, the power supply is plugged back into power, and the Power On button is pushed ]

(Two C cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

I am about to buy a graphics card and I want to know if I have the power to support it. I have an emachines et1831-05


Check your power supply if it at least 300 watts you should be OK. But some need like 500 watts, so.. Also try and get a card that's not too hard on the system, look for a low Current draw device. & check if you can upgrade your Power Supply

I would like to upgrade my emachines t6528 pc with geforce 6100 chipset, to someting like NVIDIA GeForce series 7800, 7900, 7950 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800 or better Can it be done? If so, is it just...


First you need to make sure that motherboard has a PCI-Express slot

If it has that then you will be able to upgrade to any card you want willing your power supply has enough wattage to fuel the card

Most higher end video cards need 450W power supply's to operate without problems

If you meet both of those requirements then your good to go :)

Hi There, I have a new emachines computer and the power supply is only 250 Watts. The model number is ET1831-03. Is the power supply proprietary, or can I use any power supply? It has a PCI Express slot....


use this system unit with LCD or LED monitors ( requiring very less energy or power ) and don't use other peripherals like printers,scanners or other at the time of running the system.

Now , continue with your job. Bi....

My pc is an emachine but when i try to turn it on it automatically turns off but the fan is running


The power supply is bad. Electrolytic Capacitors inside the power supply. The 'Caps' are filters for the power supply. (Used in both the Input Stage, and Output Stage)

Inside the power supply are Voltage Rails. The 3.3 volt rail, the 5 volt rail, and the 12 volt rail.
Bad capacitors = a bad voltage rail. Not enough power from the power supply. Your processor doesn't have enough power to turn on, or stay on.

Why is the fan running?
ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt of power.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
A processor can use 55 to 125 Watts. Depends on what processor it is.
Plenty of power to spin a simple fan, but not enough power for the processor.

Yes I'm sure, is the answer to your question.
(No I'm not psychic. Approximately 80 percent of the computers that come into my shop, have bad power supply's)
