Emachines C2825 problem

The power supply went up in smoke and evidently took out the motherboard too. I need to find a replacement as the company emachines referred me to ( no longer carries the part.

I had to replace the mobo in my T2865 Emachine,because of the power supply was insuffient at 250 watt(Bestec). I found a 400 watt PS on Ebay for about 30.00 (New) and purchased a Winfast K7S741MG from a local computer shop for about 60.00 and it is working just fine, after 6 months.First thing,Unplug power from cpu ! Get rid of that Bestec 250watt and replace with a 350-400 watt power supply or you will just be burning up another mobo.
I would advise marking position of the cables before uninstalling the old mobo. Then, remove cables and remove the screws that secure the mobo.Reinstall the new Winfast mobo, hookup cables and run the software. Should work fine!
I,ve seen both mobo & power supply on Ebay for less than what I paid. I hope this helps a little

If you know the motherboard is bad as well, you have two options. You can salvage the existing case and parts, and replace the motherboard and PSU. Plan on spending around $100-150 for both together. This assumes the CPU and RAM are undamaged. The second option is to buy a different "bare-bones" system, and transplant the parts into that one (CD/DVD drive and Hard Drive). Unless you have an exact replacement for the motherboard, you'll probably need to reinstall Windows. The easiest way around this is to install Windows onto a new hard drive, and attach your old hard drive as a "slave" or "secondary". These two options are centered around off-the-shelf parts, rather than buying a "brand X" computer. If you prefer "brand X", which includes an 800 # you can call, look at Dell. eMachines and Dell both produce low-cost low-quality systems, but Dell is better at it. For ideas on parts, look at an online retailer like NewEgg. For compatability, this is mostly a matter of using a tape measure and/or counting pins; they have low prices because they aren't there to hold your hand; if you would feel more comfortable with some hand-holding, which is fine, buy a new "brand X" computer. Lastly, keep in mind, the difference between a $500 computer and a $1500 computer is more than profit margin. If they don't say exactly what a part is, it's whatever was cheapest at the time. A $500 computer may be all you need, but it will have problems like this; whether that's best for you, is for you to decide.

EMachines T2824. Does nothing but light on mainboard coming on...

This is a motherboard problem. You'll need to replace it. Although, it may be cheaper just to buy a new PC (eMachines are never very expensive, or well-made for that matter)

Need picture of mother board for Emachine C2825

I've built a PC myself, each connector had text on it to say what it was and one arrow on it in relief, don't know wether that indicated plus or minus anymore.
Anyway, I recommend you just plug them in, and try to boot the PC. If it doesn't boot, switch the Power SW connector around, then it should boot. Do the same with the LED connectors, and it should work just fine!

Good luck,

Emachine T3624 desktop PC won't turn on?

I can guarantee 100% you have a bad motherboard. I have seen this exact problem with hundreds of E-machine PC's (especially your particular model).

What happend is the power supply went bad and took the motherboard with it, e-machines use very cheap OEM powersupplys that do not have any fault protection to protect the motherboard from damage if the power supply gets a surge or other damage.

You should not waste your money repairing the hardware in this PC, i would buy a new PC and transfer the data over.

Emachine power supply

Unfortunately, E-Machines are well known for their power supply problems. I have a room full of them.

Let me guess, you can hear something rattling around in the power supply, right?

When this happens, a component blows cleanly off of the board inside, and sends a voltage spike to the mainboard.

With any luck, the hard drive logic board wasn't damage, and you can recover your data with another PC.

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.

Motherboard taken out by eMachines Bestec power supply

I have not identified the specific components on the motherboard that blow, but I can tell you the defect in the Bestec supply. The +5 VSB, which is the voltage that is on at all times, loses regulation and climbs to 8-11 volts. I believe this "higher than the required" +5V takes out the components on the motherboard involved with the computer/power supply "turn-on" circuitry. The "on" button on the eMachines front panel no longer turns the motherboard on because the "kept alive when the main power is off circuits" - which allow the on/off button to do its job of turning on the machine - no longer work.
Test your Bestec power supply by plugging it in the wall socket and have it not connected to anything. Read the voltage between the purple wire and any black wire. If you see +5.0V, then this wasn't your problem. If, like it did on mine, is closer to between 8, and 11 V, this is what took out the motherboard.
