    My computer beeps when I turn it on. I tried unplugging and plugging everything back on, but nothing seems to help. My monitor has power but nothing comes on the screen. When I unplug the cord leading into the cpu, I get a message on my monitor that it's looking for the video. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem with a T2891. I just installed a new power supply (Ever Power HPS-300-202). The old one was definitely fried.

    I push the button and get nothing. No power whatsoever.

Also in addition to the above, try reseating the ram chips..take them out individually and plug them back into their respective slots..might be the miracle cure..If the motherboard fan turns on, it might just be bad memory..replace RAM chips

Have you all seen how many e machine have the same problem or very similar problems !?!?

Surely if somehow we could all get together and complain to e~machines together, they would have to do something, right?? It looks to me as though the problems are a manufacturing fault or sloppiness, and that they should do something about it!!!

Emachines have famously bad power supplies, so I would suspect that first. It's also much easier (and cheaper) to replace the power supply than the motherboard, so I'd recommend starting there. I can refer you to a sub-$50 power supply that would work for you if you like.

The mother board has a battery if thats the one you took out you reset the bios, Try pressing the delete simutanuosanly after turning on the computer then in the bios goto boot device priority and select your hard drive press f10 which is the save and exit. Try turning on your pc again and see if it boots off the hard drive make sure you give the computer time to re-boot itself after you change the setting in the bios.

There may be many causes.

First, if you get any Beeps, recommend you to remove and reinsert the Memory(RAM) sticks.

Do try booting after removing the CMOS Battery(The one like a coin on the motherboard). Check the manual for instructions to remove the CMOS Battery.

Dead motherboard on emachines t2984

I hope that you took it back to them.
Have them check the power supply, too. Besides, a bad power switch and connections that would be the only thing that would be keep it from starting.
