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.

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.
hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend if the pc does'nt power on even you have replace the power supply. it means that there is a major problem in your hardware definetly if not the power suppy the motherboard or the processor.be sure to have compatible mainboard and processor because there are mainboard that does'nt support a certain processor please try to check it .try to replace another motherboard that is compatible to your processor. or check the connection of the power on button and the wires from supply to motherboard.please do that to solve your problem hope i helped you good luck.
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.
