I have an emachine W3400. When you turn the power

I have an emachine W3400. When you turn the power on, it comes on, fans run, for about 3 seconds. Then it cuts off, but the blue E blinks. I have tried to make sure I'm running proper electrical unit, made sure everything was seated properly....any other suggestions before I scrap it? Also, I removed the hard drive and used a tether to try and remove my files. There were pictures on there that are not on there anymore....any suggestions on what might have happened to them?

    Ok, so somehow it magically started working. BUT....it doesn't show anything on the monitor. It's running, and the CD drive will eject, but I can't get anything to come up on the monitor.

W3400 service manual


A service manual for any eMachine will not be available. The best you will be able to get is a "user manual" which is next to useless for actually servicing a problem. eMachines are notorious for poor and non existent documentation.

Hey my emachine fan was running and the monitor was not coming on so i off it and spary the board with crc cleaner and now my pc fan comes on but the power signal is off and the monitor is still off


The full motherboard breakdown will be evident if the pc will not come out of the yellow standby light on the screen. The other symptoms here will be the pc may sound as though it is running. This is assuming the power supply has not partially blown. The CPU fan will be seen to be running, the hard drive and cd rom lights will be glowing, and the hard drive can be heard running. The obvious point will be that in these circumstances the pc will show no signs of a display on screen.

What will have happened here is that the motherboard processor socket will have become inoperable. This is a non repairable item, but means the motherboard must be replaced for an effective and full repair.

The cost of this may sound worse that it actually is. The High Street stores will quote you inflated repair figures, when in truth the repair can be carried out by you with my instructions in under and hour and with full effect.

How to hook up the face plate of a emachine w3400 Wich includes 3 wires 1 power butten and 2 led lights


Look at the pinout of the Front Panel header, of the eMachine W3400's motherboard.

The plastic front of the computer is the Front Panel.
The area of pins on the motherboard, that the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel connect to,
is the Front Panel header.

The motherboard for an eMachines W3400 desktop computer is an MSI ms-7145
(Micro Star International)

Orient the motherboard in your view so that we are both looking at it the same way.
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, white PCI slots (3) to the Bottom.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
(Junction Front Panel 1)

JFP1 is on the Bottom Right corner. There are two columns of pins arranged vertically.
(The JFP1 header runs parallel to the Right side of the motherboard)

The Left side column of the JFP1 header is numbered Odd.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered;
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

The Right side column is numbered Even.
Starting at the Top and going Down, the pins are numbered:
2, 4, 6, and 8.
There is NO Pin 10

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light. (HDD)
If the LED light is dim will operating switch the wires around

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for the Reset switch. (Reset button)
> IF Used

C) Pin 9 is Not used. (NC. No Connection)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light (If dim switch the wires around)

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)

Trace the wires back to the Power On switch. Even if it means temporarily removing part of the Front Panel to see.

Same with the LED lights.
See which wires go to the Power On LED, and HDD Activity LED. (Harddrive Activity LED)

Follow the 3 wires, and tell me where they go to on the Front Panel.
USB port?
Memory Card Reader?
Firewire port? (a1394)

Computer won't boot or shut off


Yep--you put it together incorrectly.
I don't know why you took it apart. Don't do that again. Just open the case and blow it out--especially the power supply. There is nothing to be gained by taking all the stuff out of it.

I would say you have the little plugs from the front panel in the wrong place. You don't have the power switch on the correct contacts. Your memory might not be seated fully. If you have a video card, it's not seated correctly.

The way to check where those little connectors it to look on the motherboard itself and printed near the little posts where you hook up the plugs. The posts should be labeled as to pwr sw, pwr led, rst, ide led, spkr.
Try that--and good luck. If you need further help, just post it here.

How do i get the setup disc or dvds?


Found other question....
The setup dvd is usually made when U turn the pc on for the first time. The system will want U to make them them called Recovery disks (dvd's).
Must be used machine and needs some TLC.
After shutdown, unplugged, open case and vacuum or blow out dirt. Clean fans and gently push connections to insure good connections. Power up to make sure all fans are working. Unplug and reassemble.
Boot up and run Disk Cleanup, then Defrag. Run MSconfig - startup tab and uncheck everything. Reboot.
The only thing that will shut down pc is overheating. If confussed, go to control panel to power options and read options, set accordingly.
U can create recovery disk by following directions in the Help and Support section.

Good Luck
