Re: Computer is an eMachine

Well Most Likely Your Problem Is A Bad Connection Of Power To The Hard Drive Or Motherboard Also You Should Check The IDE Or SATA Cable That Goes From The MotherBoard To The Hard Drive Is Securely Connected On Both Ends

Green turn on button will not come on just orange lite. green button don't turn on at all nor will computer boot up. model T2865 bought in 2007

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

I have a T3626 emachine that I replaced the drive.

check all your ground screws on the motherboard. If that doesn't work try booting it up with out the hard drive. if that doesn't work, pop out the BIOS battery and unplug your computer, let it sit for about a min. and put the battery back in and restart.

Power Supply

Check all power cables plugged into M/board if these are correct
remove all hard ware
hard drives / cd player and anything else
except for video and memory and test to see if it boots. If it does, one of the removed hardware is faulty if it does not then you have M/board failure

Power Supply Problem

Hi, I came acroos a similar problem on an older model of emachine. If I remember it right what I did was to update the chipset and agp and other drivers (especially the lan card). The T5026 uses Intel 915GV. Most of what you probably would need can be found at Most of the updates are chipset and OS specific. Good luck and please let me know how this works out for your. Cheers.
