Re: motherboard

I doubt you can replace it with the same on unless you bought another motherboard from emachine. You can buy a new motherboard just make sure it will accept your cpu and memory. Also make sure it will fit in the case and it has the same connections as your old motherboard ex. hard drive, printer ports, power supply....

Well a friend of mine bought a replacement motherboard an E310 for his computer and now the it turns on but isnt working. the powerlight is staying amber and not turning green

Make sure The P4 Power connector cable is Plugged into The motherboard (pictured)flooganbarg.jpg

If that is not your problem you should look to make sure there's stand offs holding the motherboard in the case and it's not just screwed in and touching the metal case, this would cause a short and prevent the motherboard from Posting.

You may also want to check if the power button is correctly hooked up to the motherboard.

Hi wjbrummel,

I see that you are experiencing issue with your HP desktop.

I saw on your post that you mentioned you tried troubleshooting the issues and see that you basically did everything possibl;e to see if the machine still works, yes it has power but the main thing is it show that the Motherboard is not responding at all in you case.

I would suggest removing the CMOS battery from inside the machine hold it in between your fingers then touch the side of the battery onto a Metal thing for only 2 seconds then place it back in the motherboard. then try powering the machine back in again to see if this does not help then most probably the motherboard just gave way and may need replacing.

I hope this clears the issue.

Have a nice day,

Someone gave me this pc and i cleaned it like a new hard drive.i lost sound,what sound card do i use and where do i download it from.thanks

my advise would be to try the update device driver, from the control panel.
Strip machine and get teh make and model number from the MotherBoard - then google for the drivers. is a good place to start for the drivers.

Samsung hd161hj problem

If his hard drive responds in safe mode then the bios is detecting his hard drive right and nothing you can do will make it any different. It doesn't matter what the bios is set like on his computer and how it installed.

The problem is you have two different machines. When windows installed on his computer it detected his motherboard chipset, the motherboard add on, the ide and psi ports and installed the drivers for his board. Now you're installing it on your computer with a different motherboard, different chipset, ports etc.. Windows doesn't autodetect and install motherboard drivers like it does other peripherls. Unless the motherboards are amost identical, when you put a hard drive with Windows installed on another system into a different system Windows will 99% of the time fail to run. Most the time you'll get a blue screen of death with a driver name on it that failed. You can configure that drive as a slave and put both drives in and boot off yours and see his.

No power what so ever!!

power supply could be dead in which case buy a new power supply, unless the motherboard is dead.

T2893 e machines wont turn on

Since you are looking inside, try this. Trace the wires that come from the power switch back to the Motherboard. The wires from the switch will connect to two pins on the motherboard. Carefully jump those two pins with a screwdriver and the machine should turn on. I would suggest doing this with all drives and cards unplugged first.

you will need to get a m/b with the same dimensions as the old m/b .

sometimes when you replace the m/b the operating system will reconize it
If it doesn't then you will need to get a xp cd disk and errase the old operating system. then load the new o/s
