Re: AU31 Board

Do you hear the system POST (Power On Self Test). In layman's terms that's when the system beeps and does a systems check. If you don't here this, the motherboard is usually dead. It could be another component though.

So, if you disconnect everything externally and internally down to the CPU and a few RAM chips (only what's required to do a POST) and a keyboard, to then see if it POSTs.

If it doesn't POST, then, if possible, try a new CPU, RAM, and Keyboard, other than this, you would replace the motherboard.

If it POSTs, you need to let us know how far it gets in the boot process and what error messages appear. If the boot is short of successful, you can still do the same things listed above to see which component is failing. The replace it. A process of elimination.

Hello all: emachine T3882 wiring diagram

Look very closely at the motherboard where the wires go... maybe with a magnifying glass . should say what wires go where. ie. (hdd led,reset, pwr. etc) if you reverse the wires.. just switch them back. its just for indicators.. also u could google the mainboard model number or search acer site for led pinout on mainboard.

Unit will not turn on

Our experience with that model has been defective motherboards. You can replace the board with a generic board if you cannot find the emachine board. You might have to reload Windows if you do.
