Hi, that machine uses a mainboard found in a few different brand computers. It's called a Seabreeze T3.

Computer power supply does not work

Need to know how old a computer it is as over the years the power supplies' use different methods of starting.

On newer computers the power supply is connected to the mother board by a 20 or 22 pin connector. The power button on the computer is just a momentary switch to start the computer. Make sure the large connector is firmly seated in the mother board. If you are comfortable with doing that have someone else check it. You do not want to damage the connector or mother board. You need to have some sort of anti static device conntected to your body to avoid any static discharge that could damage the mother board.

Will this isp 120s power supply work with a newer mother board which has the quad connection that looks like an 88 does it need (or does not need) to be plugged in?

Hello Eddie, Hi, the modern motherboard definitely needs the 88 or 12 volt quad connector, if the power supply is missing that connector, it will not work, except for the INTEL 510MO board which do not need the connector, so check this out. If you want to use this power supply on other boards, ask a local computer shop if they have a bad power supply or if you have one to salvage the quad connector and solder it on the PS unit. The connector should be soldered on the 12 volt yellow wire group and the black wires goes to the black wires group. Ive done this and it works.0

E Machine ATX 250 -12E replacement PS

With emachine MOBO's you have to make sure you plug in the 20 pin plug from the power supply to the mobo. Also make sure all hard drives, cd/dvd roms, floppy drives, etc are turned on. Make sure the red switch on the PS is set to 115. Make sure the PS is plugged into a known working outlet. Make sure MOBO is properly in place with all grounds/screws in place and nothing metal near or touching board which may short it out.

You can review the E Machines PS replacement guide here for further instruction.

Good Luck,

I have a T3626 emachine that I replaced the drive.

check all your ground screws on the motherboard. If that doesn't work try booting it up with out the hard drive. if that doesn't work, pop out the BIOS battery and unplug your computer, let it sit for about a min. and put the battery back in and restart.

E-machine wont power up

Your power supply is fried. I had the same problem with my Bestec ATX 250 power supply. I fixed the problem by installing the StatTech model: ATXPOWER250. It was easy to install and works well. It is almost identical to the original but more quiet. I got it for $29 at Also at online,,, June 20,2009

Thats a good thought. Replace them now before they decide to self-destruct.

Like I said, they aren't "bad" computers. They generally use Intel mainboards, although I've stumbled across some "odd" ones before.

One thing you will notice is the original power supplies don't have cooling fans (some do, and some don't). I think that is what the main problem is with them - heat.

Get yourself basic Antec power supplies (they can range from $30 and up) and you shouldn't have anymore issues.

Pc won't turn on

Hi, Are you able to test or repair some of this your self? is so use a multimeter and check the power supply,If you get no reading then remove the unit and open the cover, on the printed circut you will find a fuse either glass or ceramic. Replace this and also clean all dust from the unit replace the cover and reinstall in computer. If this fails you may need a new power supply unit. Regards mistyman
