Power buttone notworking for Emachine T3624

The PC has suddenly powered down for no apparent reason. Today, would not start at all; no sign of life, fans or lights. I have replaced the power supply but still does not work. Mean while I pulled the three wires from the front panel (WH/BK, WH/BL, WH/RED). These are supposed connected to 9 pins but do not know which one goes where. Thank you for help in advance.

    Same problem, and for guy who posted about Antek, he is wrong. I been using Antek in my emachines T3624 for over 6 months now. I just wish to know where the pins plug into since i pulled them out thinking my problem was burnout out power wire.

Power problems are not always the power supply. A small amount of power is sent to the mobo to perform self test, and if the computer is ready, it signals the supply to turn on the rest of the power. That's to prevent a small problem from cascading into a large one. But it is difficult to troubleshoot. The problem could be with the mobo or the CPU. That's why you need to find a reliable repair shop with people who know what they are doing...not someone who only knows how to swap parts and calls that "troubleshooting."

Bestec power supplies are the worst, i see them time and time again. They all do the same thing. They short out and take the motherboard with it. You will have a GREEN LED light glowing on the motherboard but that's it. A standard power supply will work the above statement is not true.

Solution is- use the proper power supply, not a 3rd party generic brand. E Machines uses BESTEC power supplies-- and the pin configuration is different than the generic power supplies like ANTEK--- therefore-- only BESTEC power supplies will work in EMachines systems. Trust me-- I pulled my hair out on this one until I swapped out a working power supply from one of my other E Machines units, and the problem dissapeared.

Good luck--

HP Pavilion a6602f suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason.

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Debdeb_64.

The power supply could be ok, this little green light that you see on the rear of the tower case is likely to be the Ethernet/Network connection.

Possible reasons for failure are as follows:
It could be a loose connection at the 24Pin or Processor 4Pin power connector.
A damaged power supply, is possible.
A faulty power on switch.
A dead mainboard.
A loose connection.

I have published a few guides that should help you in this regard, they are entitled:
How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!
How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
and most importantly My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Do contact a computer technician to test components if need be.

Take care!

Need ethernet driver for emachine t3624 where can i get it from

- I wen to e-machines website and found out that there are no available Ethernet driver

- Since the chipset drivers are from intel more than likely that the ethernet drivers are also from Intel

- For you to be specific on what Ethernet driver it is you can check on

1. device manager -> left click on the plus/triangle sign next to other devices
2. right click on ethernet -> choose properties
3. from the properties window --> click on the details tab
4. there should be a long alpha numeric number starts with PCI......
5. google that up for you to find out what specific ethernet driver it is

- If the ethernet driver is from Intel here is the link:

Unplugged power button from emachine t3624 forgot how to

If you can not see a "+" and "-" sigh on the connector as well as on the motherboard, then try it both ways. If you get it wrong the first time, it will not harm anything, just plug it in the other way if it does not work. Good luck!

Emachine T3624 will not power up

Emachines are notorious for having faulty power supplies. If your lucky you just need to replace the power supply. I've seen a lot of them where the power supply also fried the motherboard.

Please don't forget to rate this solution.

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.

No Power up on depressing On/Off button.

Sometimes if the CPU is overheatign it will power down to stop the cpu from buring out. A power suppluy just supplies power to the motherboard and that's it. If the CPU gets hot it shuts down and wont start till it cools down again.
