Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have an emachine w3400 i recently disassembled it and cleaned it out. I reassembled it now it will turn on but it will not boot and the monitor doesn't come on. Also it will not shut off when i try to power it down. The fan runs and it beeps in about 5 second intervals. I do i have something hooked up wrong is there some kind of way to check it?
Yep--you put it together incorrectly.
I don't know why you took it apart. Don't do that again. Just open the case and blow it out--especially the power supply. There is nothing to be gained by taking all the stuff out of it.
I would say you have the little plugs from the front panel in the wrong place. You don't have the power switch on the correct contacts. Your memory might not be seated fully. If you have a video card, it's not seated correctly.
The way to check where those little connectors it to look on the motherboard itself and printed near the little posts where you hook up the plugs. The posts should be labeled as to pwr sw, pwr led, rst, ide led, spkr.
Try that--and good luck. If you need further help, just post it here.
