If you have atx power supply, you can short the green wire with any of the black wires with a paper clip. if the power supply turns on, it is good.

Why wont the mouse,keyboard and monitor not work after cpu,pwer supply install...


If the motherboard used to work with the old cpu and power supply, but does not with the new cpu and power supply, then probably the cpu or power supply is bad.
Why did you change the cpu and power supply?
If the power supply went bad, it could have overloaded the mother board as well as the old cpu.
If you think the old cpu went bad, how do you know it was not actually the motherboard that went bad?
All I can suggest is that you double check all the connections.
If you have USB mouse and keyboard, try a DIN connected pair.
If you are using the onboard graphics, try a PCI express card instead.
Tell us if there is any front light activity from the power switch, drive, etc.?

Which power supply went bad? The 250watt or the 480watt? If a power-supply goes bad (dies), it generally takes some (if not all) hardware with it.

Will not power up


This is a common problem with Emachine motherboards, the problem is the power supply is a best tech and allows voltage surges to the motherboard which fries it too. If available you usually have to replace both the power supply and motherboard. I do not know what exactly goes bad on the motherboard but I have replaced many emachine power supplies and motherboards. The motherboard kit which used to be available from Emachines included a power supply and no warranty if you didn't change the power supply. They knew they had a problem.

Possible reasons are bad power switch, bad power supply, bad motherboard, bad memory , device card is not seated properly. Suggest replace power cord to see if still no power, also you may want to remove cover and make sure all your memory and device cards are seated corrrectly. If you get a amber light at the power button, bad motherboard is likely cause

Since you are looking inside, try this. Trace the wires that come from the power switch back to the Motherboard. The wires from the switch will connect to two pins on the motherboard. Carefully jump those two pins with a screwdriver and the machine should turn on. I would suggest doing this with all drives and cards unplugged first.

Dell 9400 Won't Start


sounds like bad motherboard/power supply. Just to be sure though have you upgraded the ram? If you have more then one memory chip try siwtching out each one and seeing if it's boot farther. It's possible a dimm went bad or the port it's in went bad. Otherwise motherboard/powersupply

How old is your computer? Did you recently have a power outage or anything? Most the time if a computer won't turn on, something in it went bad OR an outlet is bad. Try this:

1. Make sure that the power switch is on, the switch in the back (on the power supply itself) is turned on, and everything along those lines is functioning.
2. If that doesn't work, and it will not power on AT ALL, make sure the cords are plugged firmly in place, including the surge protector and/or the power cord itself.
3. Try resetting the surge suppressor and/or plug the computer into a different outlet in the surge suppressor. Try other items in that surge suppressor (or even in the wall outlet, if that's what you're plugged into) to make sure that the outlet itself is working.
4. If your computer is plugged directly into a working wall or surge suppressor outlet, try a different power cord.
5. If your surge suppressor works, your wall outlet has power to it, and you are using a known-good power cord in the computer, you will have to go into more in-depth investigation as something inside the computer likely went bad. It could be the video card, motherboard, CPU fan, power button, or the power supply itself. Start by testing the video card and the power supply by (one at a time) swapping out a known-good component for the one you suspect may be bad. If it won't turn on after that, try swapping out the next and try it again. If it still will not work, it could be something more serious such as the motherboard or power button.

Good luck!

it could be a bad power supply or a bad motherboard. Other problems might cause issues, such as a bad video card.
