Emachine T2958 will not turn on - has no power

It worked fine yesterday. I never had a problem in 31/2 yrs. today it is dead. it is as though it is not plugged in, but it is and I've checked all power issues (the breaker, the plug to wall/outlet work) other things work for this power source, even changed the power cord (e-machines' suggestion). No fan, no light, no nothing. How do I know if I should replace the power supply or if the motherboard is the problem? Any suggestions, or should I just go buy a new one? If the motherboard is out, have I lost all data, photos, etc? any help is much appreciated!

    Same problem, and when I jump it the DVD rom will open and the main fan will come on but none of the others. Is this still the mother board?

Dear asksforhelp,

As u have told that u have change the power cord then the second thing u can try that check the SMPS is it working or not to check this u have to know that where is the SMPS where u pluged in the power cord in the cpu that thing is SMPS check wether the SMPS fan moving or not if no then u have to replace the SMPS if it is working then u have check wether the mother Board get the power supply or not check the 12 pin power connector insert it in mother Board if still it not working then it is definatly problem with u r Mother Board. So it is better for u that to go for New One.

With the power off on the power supply, you can reach inside the case and find the 20/24 pin main power cable to the mainboard. Disconnect that, and find the green wire, which should be the fourth down on one side. Turn the main power switch on on the power supply, then use a paperclip to short the pin on the green signal wire to one of the black wires next to it. If the power supply fans come on, the problem is the main board or processor. If it does nothing, the power supply is the fault.

Make sure you get the right wire, there should be only one green one, and all of the black wires are the same, so any one of them will work.

If the motherboard is the problem and you replace the PC, you can install your old hard drive in the new computer and access your files.

I want to to return my emachine to factory settings..Have the T2958 ver 1.1 restore dvd. Won't auto run- I click on the icon and its just text. Is that a command prompt?


you will need to restart the computer and boot off the restore dvd.
This is done outside of the operating system.

When computer is first turned on keep hitting f10 untill you get the boot menu up, choose the dvd drive and it should work for you.

Loose wires inside my t2958 emachine , need a schematic website


Most of the extra wire are for expansion purposes and since most computers have different accessories,a wiring schematic may not help at all.
If you are just talking about the wire from the power supply box,I can help.

I CAN NOT CONNECT TO THE INTERNET ..using Linksy wireless remote


the wireless card installed to your computer is working..as you said you can view all wireless networks...your computer is good too...the only issue is you cant connect to the wireless router...

turn off and unplug the power cable of the Modem
turn off and unplug the power cable the router

wait for 30 seconds
plug in and turn on the modem, wait for all the light turn to solid green ( no blinking lights )

then power on the router

if you saw the wireless icon light turn solid...

go to your computer...right click the wireless icon...select repair

if this doesnt work....reset your internet router by press and hold the reset button behind the router near the power plug (atleast 15 sec)

then connect your PC..the wireless network dont have the WEP key anymore because of the reset..you can reconfigure and put back the WEP key when you get connected.

Emachine t2742 I also have a wiring problem!


gtater,
It's ironic that you ask me this question today-- i am just now carrying in another eMachine computer to fix. Anyway, unfortunately I do not have one that is the same model as yours (T2742). However, I did some quick research and found that yours has the same exact motherboard as the T2898 which I made the diagram 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

For further reference, I would like to share this diagram for the eMachines T6544 in case someone else may need this model. This is the computer I just carried in... might as well share.

By the way, the power switch doesn't need to be oriented any particular way (positive and negative), which is why the switches are not labeled as + or -. Switches can be wired either way and they will work the same.

Hope this helps.

EMachine T2958 - No power


You are right about checking PSU first. Check PSU by using a PSU tester. If you don't have a PSU tester you can go to any computer reapir shop and have them check out the PSU for you.In case PSU, is fine there is a possibility that motherboard may be shot.
