If the light on the motherboard is lit then the power supply is sending power to the may be fine. Is there any sign of life when you power on the PC? If yes then remove the RAM DIMMS and reinsert and reboot. Remove the HDD from both ends and reconnect and reboot. Reconnect the main power connector to the motherboard and reboot. If the answer to my question is no, the you may be correct in assuming that the PSU is faulty. It may need repair or replacement. A repaired PSU may not be very dependeble hence I would recommend a new PSU.

The only thing i know that the power supply shows 300w max. computer is about 3 years old & will no longer turn on. there is no noise to indicate that it is working or getting power


These use a standard Power Supply that you can get from almost any computer shop

Better to get one slight higher rated so maybe a 350 or 400w PSU

you can replace these yourself as the connections are pretty easy to follow and only four screws around the supply hold it in

It is a common e-machine issu so long as it has not taken out anything on the motherboard you should be fine.
I have seen the emachines pwer supply take out the main board on occasion although it is quite rare

Unless you have problems, your power-supply is totally adequate.
Probably, even a 300W power-supply would be sufficient
(one DVD-ROM, one disk-drive, one video-card).

sounds like an issue with your motherboard or something like that...try resetting the motherboard by unplugging the power, taking out the battery of the motherboard inside the computer and pressing the power button several times to drain the power. then put the battery back in, plug in the power cord and try to start it up. if it doesnt work then ur gonna have to contact emachines because ur mobo is either defective or broken...

Nothing on my Emachines computer will turn on.


I would recommend rechecking your connection to the motherboard. All wires from the power supply to board and making sure the front panel switch connection are correct. Also, make sure the power supply is compatible to the motherboare. even though a 20-Pin ps will connect to a 24-Pin board, it still does not work. Good Luck

Emachines used to use a poor quality power supply made by Bestec, I believe the quality is supposed to have improved in the last few years but inconsidering the number of dead Emachines that wind up in my workshop I doubt it.
The problem you have is that being a poor quality power supply there is a very high risk that it damaged the motherboard when it went out.
If you can borrow a power supply just to test with all the beter BUT be carefull some Emachines are proprietary and the main motherboard plug is not always wired in the standard way.
Check here for a replacement power supply if you can prove your motherboard to be OK.

Have a look on this site for examples of standard and proprietary power supply wiring colours.
