Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

I cannot boot up the computer. When I push the front power button, nothing happens. When I flip the switch on the back, or unplug it for 30 secs and plug it back in, the fan starts up and a yellow light flickers on the front of the tower. This occurs for about 4 seconds, then it shuts off again.

I had this happen to my emachines T1842 about a year ago. I replaced the power supply and it worked fine. It was about 25 bucks but fixed my problem. Make sure the red switch on the back hasnt been messed with. it should be on 115. If you have moved it, it may have blown a fuse inside the power supply.

I have 5 biz hub 654s. There is no "utility" hardware button. Instead, open the front cover (marked "biz hub 654") - switch off the main power - white switch in an orange rectangle. Wait 30 secs. Flip back on- then QUICKLY close the door while holding down the yellow RESET button. "Trouble reset" appears - tap it - OK appears below it. Use main power to power down. Wait 30 seconds. Power back up. Works every time.

No power to my desktop computer HP A1330N and no green light in the back of the power supply


You replaced power supply and your made sure you plugged everything back into the motherboard snuggly and in it's proper place? If so it might be your motherboard is bad.

Make sure you have the new power supply turned on. Sometimes there's a O/I switch on the back of the power supply. Flip it and try to boot and see what happens. You might have another bad power supply.
If so your motherboard might be burning them out.

Try removing the power cord for 30 seconds and press and hold the power button. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in and press the power button to see what happens.

Do your fans work when you press the power button? Do you hear any fans running?

I am wanting to reset my username on my linksys wrt54g wireless router and am not sure how to do it. I understand that I need to push a paperclip in the back of the router but what do I need to do with...


If you are resetting because you forgot the username and want to reset the router to factory defaults(you would have to reconfigure your router completely), you should use a 30-30-30 reset. This is done buy holding the reset button for 30 seconds, while still holding the reset button unplug the power cord for 30 sec, while still holding the reset button plug the power back and keep holding for another 30 sec. In short you hold the reset button for a total of 90 sec and have the unit unplugged in the middle of that time for 30 secs. Or you can simply try holding the reset button for 30 sec and see if the defaults (admin) are now working or not. As for the computer, it does not have to be off, I actually prefer keeping it on because you can test the router connection right away.

Hi. Were you able to see the the DELL post screen when you turn on the computer? Take out the battery and unplugged the power adapter from your computer and to the wall socket. Press and hold the power button for 30 secs. Put everything back in then turn on the computer.
