If you feel comfortable working inside the computer, after taking electrostatic precautions and ensuring the power is off and disconnected, look for a group of colored wires which plug on to a set of pins near one corner of your motherboard. The power wires should be marked "PWR" (or something similar) on the end of the wire, and the appropriate place for it on the motherboard should have the same marking.

If in doubt, take it back to who/where you got if from, and ask them to do it for you, or give us the eMachines model number and we can give more specific info on how to proceed.

Safety first. If you're the slightest bit unsure about what you're doing...DON'T DO IT!!!

The power button connects onto the motherboard with a jumper. One end of those cables probably go to the button the other end should connect to the motherboard where it says pwr with a few little pins.

Ok, test the power button pins. First disconnect any power source to the computer. Then, find the power pins on your motherboard (the one that your case's power button connects to. Usually two wires, one red and the other black). Grab a jumper a connect it to those two pins, they usually have the letters "pwr" or "power" printed next to them. Then, once you've done this, with the jumper connected, connect the power cord to your power supply. It should turn on by it self. If it does, then the problem is the power button. If it does not do it, then the problem is the motherboard. Good luck.

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.

Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

Dsl wire disconnected

If the wire is blue, or yellow in color , and it connector appears like a telephone jack , but a little bigger than the same..
One end of this cable would connect to the nextwork jack at the back of your computer , and the other end would connect to the DSL modem box that you have.

Umm... computers don't have wiring manuals. Could you be a little more specific about what you're trying to do or need to know?

When you say out, do you mean they are broken, or just disconnected? Most of these computers have a plug on the end of the wires to the front panel and it just plugs into the system board. If you look at the board you'll see where the front panel wires go. Sometimes it's hard to read the small type, but there are labels on the board that tell you what connector does what.
