Try refreshing all the connections on the motherboard first like ATX power supply, SATA cables, RAM, etc. Then turn the computer on again, touch the HDD and feel if there's vibration, this means that your hard drive is active. Also, try resetting the CMOS, by removing the battery, but before doing this, make sure to turn off the PC and remove the power cable connected to the power supply. After approx. 10 secs attach the battery again, and turn on the computer, you may need to input the correct time and date. Hope this helps.

My sister had the same issue with hers. She said one day it died. I replaced the power supply, the little lights on the mobo came on, but the computer did not power up. Come to find out, when the "best-tec" power supply fried, it surged the motherboard and fried that as well. I replaced the motherboard and it works like a charm.

Can not find heat sink switches on motherboard emachine t2862


Heat sink switches? I have to assume that you're talking about a dead mother board but the fans and the LED on the mother board are OK? This is a classic eMachines problem. Their power supplies glitch and take out the mother board sometimes the power supply goes bad too.

No boot, New PS, Green light on MB lights, No Fans running


Bottom line: Either your power supply or (hopefully not) the mother board has gone bad.
Replace power supply (remove old one), take to local independent computer shop, ask them for new unit. Should be around $50.00. - no more. After reinstall, if still no fans, boot, etc. Replace motherboard or buy a new machine. MB's installed probably will run you around $250.00-ish.
Good luck.

First check to see if a drive died. Unplug all the drive Floppy, hard and dvd or burns. I have come across many time that a drive will die and keep motherboard from booting. Being that you say you get a green light on the motherboard shows that the power suppy is providing some power. But for some reason the internal self test is faulting the power suppy. I have not come cross any bad power supplies killing a motherboard. But I have come across power supplies killing drives. The power switch is a normal open switch so the only time you be able test continuity on it is if you hold the switch in, or the closed position.

I understand that your cpu is not turning on and the repairer confirmed that it is the issue with the mother board. I suggest you to please check the smps fan spinning or not. If its spinning then then the issue could be with the mother board. If not try changing the power cables.

Next check whether your cd rom light is glowing. Even if there is an issue with the mother board, as the power is supplied by the smps the light  should glow if the light is not glowing its clear that something must be wrong with smps.

Please provide us the result of the above steps so that I could assist you further.

There might be a problem with your mother board, or processor, or both of them.
