EMachine 2862 Desktop Dead On Power-Up

I have a problem with my daughters eMachines 2862 Desktop. Nothing happens when you press the power button on the front. The machine was working fine and then the next time she came to switch it on nothing happened, no fans no power light. I have installed a new replacement power supply, because I read that the eMachines P.S were prone to failure but it is still the same. There is a tiny green led that lights up on the motherboard when I plug the power cord in but thats it.

Can anyone help.

Re: eMachine 2862 Desktop Dead On Power-Up

Check all the leads to the hard drive and check that the fan starts spinning when you switch it on if it dont start then the problem is the switch these do often go and can be easily replaced and they are not expensive i had the same problem and found that it was just the switch hope this solves your problem for you you can bypass the swith so that the computer comes on when you turn the plug on but when you shut down the computer this shuts everything down but the switches are cheap enough to buy if you have changed the power pack then the only thing it can be is switch .................................

I have an Emachine W6409 Desktop, it was turned off(proper shut down) after an hour or so, pressed the on button, nothing happened, power supply was replaced, attempted to turn on and again nothing...

It sounds like you dont have the motherboard/case wiring input properly, without a specific diagram of your computer, i cant really tell you what to plug in, but your computer could have come with the correct wiring guide.

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.

E-Machine T2862 Will Not Power UP

I've the same problem, unfortunately, I disconnected the 3-plug connectors to the on/off switch, thinking they were a single plug. Now I don't know quite how to re-plug them.

The three color codes are black-white blue-white and red-white. I have the motherboard guide, but I would appreciate anyone's help reconnecting the 3-plug set correctly.

I believe that the front button is not connecting to the switch for the power supply. Also make sure all internal connections are secure. Sometimes the button breaks from behind so that it cannot contact the switch. Let me know if it helps. There are other solutions if you tried this one first.
