Your getting power to your PSU, via the green light on your mobo.
verify the PSU has a green light(most emachines do)
it sort of sounds stupid but, check the connection of the cable coming from the front of the case(the wires that connect to the mobo to the power button on the outside of the case.

if all else fails, take the pc out of the case.. put all components on a static free bag and start to rebuild your PC(without a case)
...this will rule out a short on the PC case, and faulty wiring from the case...

pretty much sounds like you've been through almost every step except replacing the PSU(you just said you tested/but your getting power to the PSU)

hope some of this helped

Emachine d2880 power on switch is bad. How do I work around? Is there a way to short the pins on mother board to turn on my PC? In words do you have connection details for power on switch wires to mother...


In your computer you have a power switch located on the PC chassis, you will find two wires coming off of it. At the end these two wires you should find a black 2 pin push plug. This should be connected to your mainboard. On your mainboard, the header for LEDs, hdd, power etc, you should see two pins labled power. Switch push plug goes over these two pins or these two pins labeled power can be shorted with a screwdriver, however this can be risky as it is very easy to touch other pins in the process and kill the mainboard. Rather use a push plug!
You can also read my guide as your computer my not be POSTing, my published guide is entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

All the best!

Emachine D2880-No Power


Probably yes, the poiwer-source may be delivering "dirty" power (happens also when using a back-up generator, as in the power in the building goes out, or when used in an old RV, and the back-up kicks in) <--- is a safety feature to protect the CPU. Try also a different powerstrip, or head off to the neighbors and try their plug before swapping out the power supply.

In the end, you may wish purchase an inexpensive clone-tower, swap out the HD and processor (if you are spending too much time and money trying to band-aid the old one)

Hope this helps!

Computer will not turn on


Best way to check is to open your case. Near the power supply plug to the motherboard should be a little led light. If it is getting power to the board this light should be green. If it's unlit then most likely your power supply has gone bad. Hope this helps.

EMachine T2824 does not turn on. Power cord/power supply seems O.K.


There are just too many eMachine models to be familiar with every one, however, as a preliminary inspection, remove the side panel, and turn the computer on to see if you see a green "Health" light. This will give you an initial clue as to how to pursue the problem. eMachines have historically had power supply problems. If you do not see a green health light on the motherboard, then your power supply is defective. A power supply supplies various voltages + - 5V, + - 12V ,etc. A power supply can be easily tested by a local shop with the proper test equipment. You might start there if you are a DIY! Short of that, you can purchase a power supply for under $65.00.

Emachine with XP home edition doesn't start


Hi hearalso, down to the basic's. Replace power cord.
No help there than, remove the case's side panel to expose the motherboard. (Normally it is the left side panel while facing the front of the PC.)
Look closely for a small (green in color) led light. The power cord must be connected to the PC & connected to you're power strip but do not press the power on button on the PC.
The green led tell's you the board is receiving 5volts. Check all connections. Un-plug & reconnect every data & power connector in your PC. (Double check). There is a fuse inside your power supply that may have blown. Check you're manual page, Approva Statements B-1. Fuse Warning Instruction Caution.
Check fuse in power supply. (Unplug power cord before opening).
If you can not power up the PC after all of the above than if possible, swap out the power supply.
Replacing the power supply is the last step.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask.
Good Luck!
