Question about eMachines E620-5885 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an emachine lap top I got back in 2005. Everything was working when the other day my computer just shut off. I checked the power cord and there was a tiny hole, but appeared to have power going through as there were sparks. I tried electrical tape for the hole just to see if that was the problem before I go buy another cord, but still the lap top does't turn on. Could it be a more serious problem?

EMachine Towers have a history of the power supplies blowing the chipset on the motherboard. This may be a similar problem check the mobo chipset if there appears to be a small hole or burn mark the mobo will be u/s as you can't change the chipset.

Hope this helps

First I would replace the connection cord to the computer that is not working. Try switching the cords to test them. The router may have a reset button. Turn the router off for at least three minutes, and try again.

Emachine t5026 not power on. replaced psu.


I would test the memory. Also I think some computers will shut down if the fan on top of the CPU quits working. Or maybe one of the other fans or the Hard Drive quit and is drawing too much juice causing the PSU to shut down. It sounds like something may be grounding.

Hello,

You might have a stuck key on your keyboard. I emphasize might.

Try this though:
Remove the power cord from the back of your PC. Leave it out for a minute or so. While it is unplugged turn your keyboard over and strike the top of the keyboard against your work area top a couple of times. Some debris may come out, could unstick any key that may be stuck. Reattach the power cord and if it doesn't power up immediately turn the power on and see if everything is okay or not.

If not, let me know by commenting back so I can talk you through another troubleshooting technique. Okay?

Regards,
Worldvet

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
