Simply replace it with a motherboard of micro ATX form factor. that should fit most system chasis. Most mother boards these days come in that size

I AM INSTALLING A NEW POWER BUTTON... I NEED TO KNOW WHAT PLUGS WHERE...


If it's the power button that is on the case, it plugs into the motherboard. Most likely, in the lower right hand side as you are looking into the case with the front of the case to your right.
The little row of pins is labeled. You are looking for the label pwr sw or something similar. If you can't see any labels, short each pair of pins with a small screwdriver--two at a time. When the machine turns on, you've found the correct two pins.

Emachines t3958 wont power on


The green light means there is standby power to the motherboard.
Power button may be broken, does it 'click'?
With the case open, do any of the fans start, then stop?
If yes to the above, you may have a bad power supply. Can you borrow one to try?
Last test before it's the chip or mother board:
Remove the connectors for power from drives, video card, all but the motherboard (Do NOT disconnect small connectors on the motherboard, just POWER from the drives and video card)
Remove any expansion cards except video. Note where they go.
Try again. If it starts and fans run ok (video may not work but fans go normally.), shut it off, reconnect the video card. Try again, power off, connect or install one thing at a time until it stops running again. The last item plugged in is the culprit.
Always one item, power on, try it, then power off, try the next one.

I have a emachine t3958 it will not turn on


Your power supply has gone out. This could have been caused by a surege, dust or bad power outlet.

You can purchase a replacement off eBay for under $25.00.

I have an emachines t3958 w/ intel d845epi/d845gvsr, it will not turn on. i have replaced the power supply, and i believe everything is plugged in correctly. help!


Hi there,
Do any fans or lights come on?

Here's things I'd check:
-Replace Power supply (You already did this)
-Try a different AC outlet, remove any surge protector
-Remove the Power Button Cable from the MB and short those pins
with a screw driver just for a second.. (to eliminate a bad power button)
-Verify that the Power button is connected to the correct place.
-Verify the voltage selector on the Power supply is set to 115V (if that's what you have)
-Verify the Power supply's additional switch is set to on (if it has one on the back)
-Verify the CPU is seated correctly and securely.
-Verify there is no metal screws or anything like that sitting on the motherboard.
-Verify that the extra 4 Pin 12V connector is connected (if present on
this MB)
If none of this works, the motherboard might be dead.
Good luck!

Where exactly is the fuse on a emachine t3958


The fuse on the power supply would be on the primary side (before the transformer). It's usually either under the cover, or it's in the red voltage selector switch.

But...if you have some lights on the motherboard, it's not the fuse. The power supply has to send out a couple different voltages (usually +/- 5V, and +/- 12V). If parts of the computer have power, then you probably are missing one of the voltages. You could get a voltmeter and check each one, but chances are you will just need to replace the power supply.

Upgrade mother board t3958


to upgrade a motherboard... you would need to replace it with another one, on a motherboard you can upgrade memory, cpu, video card, hard drive, parts that are connected to it, but you don't really upgrade the motherboard itself..

Here's the Support Link for your desktop. Look under User Guides, Hardware Reference. Also look on the motherboard for markings such as PW or PS and an indicator to where the wire goes.

Surge Protector


Surge Protectors are devices that usually you plug your equipment to.. and it protects it from Voltage Spikes that would otherwise destroy the device without it.. saddly not all Surge Protectors are the sam.. some are completely useless..

If you are really serious about protecting your PC not just the hardware but also the data and your work.. might as well invest on a UPS(Uninterrupted Power Supply) unit.. it has everything a surge protector can offer and more..
