Question about E-Machines T2200 PC Desktop
TURNED THE MACHINE OFF ONE NITE. TURNED IT BACK ON NEXT DAY AND THE MONITOR SAID IT WASN'T RECEIVING A SIGNAL. I THOUGHT THE MONITOR WAS BAD, SO REPLACED IT. TURNED THE COMPUTER ON AGAIN AFTER HOOKING UP NEW MONITOR AND ONLY THE FAN CAME ON. I WIGGLED THE POWER CORD TO SEE IF IT WAS LOOSE AND THE FAN WENT OFF AND THE POWER BUTTON WOULDN'T WORK ANYMORE OR THE LITTLE LIGHT AROUND IT. TOOK THE TOWER TO A REPAIR PLACE AND THEY SAID THEY THOUGHT IT WAS THE MOTHERBOARD. ALSO, FOR A COUPLE DAYS BEFORE THIS HAPPENED, THE MOUSE WOULD FREEZE UP OCCASIONALLY. THEY TOLD ME I NEED TO GET HE EXACT MOTHERBOARD TO FIX THIS AND IT'S AN E-MACHINE T2200 ABOUT 4-5 YEARS OLD. I DON'T WANT TO LOSE ALL THE STUFF ON MY HARD DRIVE. WHAT CAN I DO?
Here is a link to a motherboard that is on sale at Ebay:
You can replace the motherboard only if you dont want back up your computer and purchase a new one.

First thing to check if the computer will not power on is the power supply, but I'm betting they already checked that.
In order to keep the hard drive exactly the way it was you do need the exact same motherboard. If you put a different board in it's place Windows will have to be re-installed.
I recommend most people with machines several years old and have bad motherboard to replace the computer instead of fixing the old one. You could pay several hundred dollars getting that one fix or put that money towards a new computer which will generally be way better than what you had.
As far as your data it is fairly easy to remove the hard drive from your emachine and put it into a USB Hard drive enclosure . From there you can manually copy all your important info (photos, emails, documents) to the new computer.
One thing to beware - most new computers come with Windows Vista preinstalled on them. If this is the case some of your software may not work on it and you may also have to purchase an updated version of the software to get access to your files.

You can place your hard drive into an External Hard Drive Case and transfer your files on another system (this would be cheaper than having a repair shop do a ‘data-transfer’).
