Question about E-Machines EMA IMPERIAL GV (845GV) TG3 eMachines (145119) Motherboard

1 Answer

Non response from tower

I have just tried to power up an old emachine but no luck... i checked the psu and found it to be dead so i changed it with a brand new one , when powering up this time the processor fan run very slowly and nothing else, no beeps or anything not even a flicker on the screen i would say the psu going the first time also took out the motherboard. I have checked all capacitors everything is fine and i can find no burn out on the motherboard itself....is it worth repairing or will it have taken the cpu and memory out as well

If you're hoping for a bargain out of it, it depends how much your time is worth. Given that the PSU was dead, and other components are showing problems, one or more of them were probably affected. Could be the fan is spinning slow due to damage, and the motherboard is refusing to fully init because of the fan... but I doubt it. The CPU may or may not be okay, but the value is likely to be low. The RAM is probably okay, but again, value is likely to be low. Your best bet would be if you had a second similar computer, to try interchanging parts and see which are damaged/working. In general, though, the system probably is of very low value when working. It looks like it may be model T3624; if so, a model recently went on eBay for $140 (including shipping), in working condition and with 512mb RAM. (item 190155139483) Personally, I would try to sell it as-is for $75, with the dead PSU, or the amount you paid for it (if applicable). Depending what the PSU cost you, you could also add that to the price and ask for that, with the working PSU. At the end of the day, the question becomes, how much would it cost to buy this computer (or a similar model) in known working condition? Is the value of your time, or replacement parts, going to exceed that?

Compaq FS7600 Computer not turning on


what tower? model, the monitor has nothing to do with power and dead fans in the tower.
'Sounds, (and silent to) means the PLUS in the PC is dead.
all things can be repaired, that is what technicians do.
here is the chain of events, ! to get noise (fans)
power in the wall 120vac , usa
power to the PSU,
the power button goes to the MOBO, and standby power is there
now and pushing said button the MOBO commands the PSU on
if the PSU is happy (PWROK) thinks PSU IS safe the PSU tells the PC its ok, and power stays up.
and fans run.

so my guess bad PSU, its easy to test with anyf $10 voltmeter,
ask.

change the power cord (Adapter) seems your battery not charged well, that can be due to bad Adaptor or by end of battery life. check the same by direct power on (Adapter) if the same running then change the battery.

PC is not turning on


is your powersupply overloaded by extras (e.g a new graphics card/processor) ? or has it simply given up the ghost?
the pc could also be drawing alot of powewr form you electrics and could've blown a fuse in your power socket/too much demand.
you could also try and update your bios chip. you need to be a bit more specific aswell ;)

The tower wont turn on


Check your power supply. Most common reason for your problem is that the psu has died. Also near your main psu connection on the motherboard should be a little led light. If your board is getting a proper power connection/supply that light should be green. If not it will either be off or red. If it is green then the problem may be your motherboard. If it is red or off then it is most likely a bad psu. Replace with a compatible psu & you should be back up & running. Hope this helps.

Is my pc fixable?


Hi!

The might be so that you toasted the whole pc, but i think you toasted the PSU. If you have another psu you can try to change it and see if the pc starts, or if you can borrow one from a friend. If it dosent starts then your motherboard is toasted to.
But i bellive that its only the psu.

Good luck

Emachine t5026 not power on. replaced psu.


I would test the memory. Also I think some computers will shut down if the fan on top of the CPU quits working. Or maybe one of the other fans or the Hard Drive quit and is drawing too much juice causing the PSU to shut down. It sounds like something may be grounding.

Flashing power button - no keyboard nor mouse. But PC works... ??


Yes, it may be that the +5v supply from the PSU is faulty, as the PS/2 ports run on 5v and USB runs on 9-12v. Replace the PSU with another of the same form factor and same power rating or better (>=230W). They come at ~£30, so not too expensive. For a little more. Try this:

Hi i have emachine 8230 tower


firstly lets think why a Working pc would no longer BOOT. The boot process then. a pc starts the bios which POST's. this results in ONE BEEP which might be followed by messages(if you get several beeps then they are like morse code long/short and count out an error code). when you get your ONE BEEP the pc is working. when it then HANGS(appears to do nothing) its usually because of either a) the cd drive is duff so disconnect its cables. b) the hard drive is duff so disconnect its cables c) the hard drive hasnt quite died yet but has some very slow sectors and is making the Clackety Clack of the heads recalibrating every few seconds. d) there could be a a gpu card bios glitch and your pc is running but you just have a blank screen. some hints then 1) never start removing parts as that corrupts the CMOS(the battery backed up configuration for your BIOS) so you may need to clear your cmos. 2) never play with the idea of changing ram sticks as people usually end up putting them in any old slot(which may result in a non working pc). make sure a PAIR is fitted in slots 0/2 and a separate matching pair in 1/3 slots not in slots 0/1 which is two half pairs. Other factors. 1) a short circuit. your PSU has built in protection, if the psu fan(inside case of the psu) turns and kicks back and immediately stops you have a short circuit and its cuts the power to avoid a fire/meltdown, which could be caused by high wattage gpu(>60 watts) without its extra power cables fitted or wrongly connected front usb cables or removing a mainboard and fitting it into a new box where the board has its support posts NOT lined up with the holes fro the screws so the post is touching underside of the board circuits. hope some of that helps.
