W2686 power supply problem?

My sad old emachine W2686 seems to have died. When I plug it in to a working outlet, there are no lights, no fan, no response. This comes 1 week after replacing the keyboard and mouse because they both quit (no lights, no response). I have read several places that emachines often have power supply problems so I'm not sure I want to buy the same power supply - is there a better replacement? Thank you for any assistance.

There are better power supplies that you can buy from most computer stores tha also sell parts. Take your power supply in to make sure the new one is compatable. The store staff should be willing to help you.

I hear two beeps when i conect power suply on my emachine t5212 model


Very sorry about your son.

If you can't find the real problem, you can always put that hard drive into another PC to get the files. If so, be sure to looking to a potential "jumper" setting on that drive for it to be recognized.

Your problem would not be with a battery, but the power supply. Try plugging into a different outlet just to make sure, but sounds like you may need a new power supply.

Fans and lights come on but the harddrive and cd bays do nothing


If you replaced the power supply did you plug it into the drives. If so then your motherboard is most likely faulty.

Emachine w2686 no display when boot up


Couple things to check. First, check with different monitor. Their monitors are usually build by KDS and I think there was a bad series out there. Also check for any beep codes through speakers on startup, this can tell you bad ram or bad video out. Also try unplugging computer and removing CMOS battery inside (watch like battery). Lastly, If non of the above, a bad processor will allow the computer to come on but no beep, no boot, no nothing but fans and green power light. Hope this helps a little.....

First check to see if a drive died. Unplug all the drive Floppy, hard and dvd or burns. I have come across many time that a drive will die and keep motherboard from booting. Being that you say you get a green light on the motherboard shows that the power suppy is providing some power. But for some reason the internal self test is faulting the power suppy. I have not come cross any bad power supplies killing a motherboard. But I have come across power supplies killing drives. The power switch is a normal open switch so the only time you be able test continuity on it is if you hold the switch in, or the closed position.
