Every socket and connector has a unique fit. your IDE(seatbelt hehe) will connect to your HDD or if its a SATA still it will connect to your HDD.

Emachine w3609 will not turn on green light is on the motherboard nothing works i did the power drain and still does not work could the ps be bad or the motherboard or both


Yes to both of your questions.
When nothing works, I first unhook everything from the motherboard except for the CPU, video, and memory. Then turn it on. If you get the fan starting up and video, then hook up the hard drive and keyboard and mouse to see if it works. Lastly, hook up the CD--this is the part that fails most often.

I need help connecting the power on cable and led cable as well as the hard drive light cable. for my emachine w3644


These cables are attached in the lower right corner of the motherboard. There are two rows of pins there. Probably 10 pins in all. They should be marked with letters something like hdled (hard drive LED), pwr (power light) pwr sw (power switch) spk (speaker) etc. Anyway, if you can't find markings, hooking the little plugs up to sets of the pins one plug at a time will tell you which works.You can't hurt anything by trying various combinations

I recently unhooked all cords to my pc and plugged them back in and the tower is not staying on


Sounds like one of the cards may have been fried or not completely reinstalled during the process. Did you wear an ESD wrist strap while you worked on it? Number one killer of hardware is static shock. Remove all of the cards while wearing a wrist strap and see if it will stay on. Did you ADD a new card?? Then your power supply probably needs an upgrade.

Emachine t2824 board diagram


Here is the diagram that shows you how to hook up the wires:

http://www.fixya.com/uploads/images/284ECAC.png

If you still have no video then reseat the memory one stick at a time in one slot at a time.

If you still have no video then reseat the cpu into its slot.

If still no luck try a different stick of RAM by trying it one slot a time.

Last step, unhook the power connectors from your device so the only power connectors that are connected are the power to the motherboard and the p4 connector to the motheboard. Also make sure your power supply is set to 115v. Its the red switch on the back of the power supply.

If none of this works, then the motherboard is bad. Hope this information helps.

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.

Computer worked fine, unhooked it to hook up a new one, decided to hook the emachine back up to play games on, got it hooked up but it won't come on now. everything is hooked up right, i opened it up and...


make sure you hook everything with a little force especially the memory until it snaps back into place. same goes for all the cards. care should be give to the cpu, nice and easy. make sure your power supply is potential enough or has not gone bad. The MB can give a green light but there could be too little energy for the whole system.

Need to look in the manual to find where they go. Don't just try at random or something will fry.
