I have emachine t seris t2862 desktop and I donnot know how to connect power swich in mother board please help me

On the motherboard there will be a small set of connectors marked FPANEL, next to each of these will be a set of letters (usually PW, RES, HDD, MSG) and an earth pin, From the power switch you will see a two wire set normally black and white ending in a connector, this connects to the PW pins on the FPANEL

I disconnected the wiring from the face cover to the motherboard on a emachine model T2984. how do the wires reconnect? three plugs red-white black- white bluu -white

you will need to down load the mother board connection chart if you connect them the wrong way round there is a chance that you may damage the board but mores to the point if the wires are usb support if you get this wrong you will destroy most usb items as current will flow up the data lines (bad times) wait untill you get it right (good times)

I am trouble shooting an emachine T2898.

Well I can't exactly get you the layout of the motherboard because I don't know what motherboard you have. Find out what model the emachine is and Google it. You'll find everything you need out there. Or you can e-mail the model name to me and I'll help you out:

Power supply for Emachine

WhoDoctorK9 is right. You'll need the model number of the pc to pull up any schematics of the board. This is, however, how you solve this problem. Just google your model number and try to find a schematic of the board.

If you can't find the schematic, the board should be marked with some sort of 'pwr' blah blah white lettering. It's hit & miss, but you can find the connection without visual aid by dimensions of the plugs and the obscure little identifiers on the board itself.

Good luck and may the force be with you. :P

Hi dallasblue08,

Here's a diagram of what your looking for:

The following eMachine models share the same motherboard (and thus the same front panel layout):
T2742 T2796 T2798 T2824 T2885 D2823 T2862 T2896 T2898 T2958


Hope this helps!

If you look closely, you would see written: power, reset, hdd led, power led(normally at the left bottom corner of the motherboard). If you look at the mapping well, you will see where how each double pins represents one of these. Simple slot the power button wiring into the one that maps with the power position.

You can also test this by touching the two pins together with with a metal say, a screw driver. If its the power, the machine will turn on.
