Question about E-Machines H2824 PC Desktop

1 Answer

No power after external power failure

I have an eMachines H2824 tower that went out of warranty 2 months ago (conicidence??). Yesterday, possibly due to a severe power outage (the power came and went 3 times, with loud bans coming from a piece of equipment in the street outside, before staying off for several hours), the tower went dead. That is to say that it will no longer turn on at all. I checked in Troubleshooting in the accompanying booklet and it suggested that after an external power failure it is necessary to unplug the machine from the wall, wait 10 secs, and replug before pushing power button. This did not work either. Anyone able to suggest the variety of technical problems that may be involved here, and especially any bright ideas for attempting to restart the machine without having to take it to a techy? Thanks...

The first thing I have to advise you is to change the Power supply unit. Before buying one change it with another one (probably from a friend's PC) and see if it is working. To remove the power supply unit, you need to remove your tower's case, and unscrew the power supply and remove it. the power supply is the metallic box on top of the computer at the back.

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!

Hi Nicki,
Sorry, this really sounds bad, it would seem that the hard drive is shot from your description. The data may or may not be recoverable. If you get a new drive, you will have to partition it first, then set it as your Master drive, then set the old one as a slave, install your operating system onto the master drive and try to recover the information on the old drive after you have that done. If you cannot successfully recover the information that way, you most likely won't be able to get it at all unless you backed it up onto a flash or cds or dvds.
Sorry for the news but that is what it sounds like

Check the settings for your speakers in the sound settings. It is possible that the settings have changed. It is also possible that the sound card has went bad in that port.

Installed a generac 10k guardian standby generator 2 months ago and all was well,self test each week went fine until this week. Seems to have lost power, screen blank and can't reset? How can I get this...


If you installed this 2 months ago, then you are still under warranty. You need to contact Generac directly before you try to fix yourself and void warranty. Not trying to offend, just being practical.

As the computer is only 2 months old, you should be able to contact Emachines and have
them send you a recovery disc out for the particular model. As the computer may seem identical, in most cases a recovery disc from your computer will not work because of a different
driver or some other small issue.

Power will not stay on


With a problem like this, I would use the warranty for the TV.
It's possible a circuit board failure has occurred and the TV is automatically turning itself off to protect it from further damage. Is normally called " Protection Mode " for most TVs.

Being that it's 2 months old, it should be under warranty regardless. I would recommend contacting the store of where it was purchased and have them help you with the warranty issue.

Video issues


Posted same response on the other Zenith issue...

I've owned this unit since Dec 2005. It appears there are two Video Amp boards Z & Y-SUS boards, that have failure problems.

After 10 months, my ZSUS board went out and was replaced under warranty. And... Just a month ago, the same problem occured again, so I've complained to Zenith (LG) and they are extending my warranty to repair the unit.
