Question about E-Machines T2862 PC Desktop
I have a buddy with the "no power" problem. He tried a new power supply, but still gets nothing, no lights, no fan etc. So, he purchased a new motherboard and memory. I don't know the model # for the new mobo, but I believe the original one was called "Seabreeze". Here's my question: Once we install the new motherboard and memory, how do we get it to boot off the original hard drive? Do we just go into the bios on power up and change some settings? Or do we have to reload XP? Any help would be appreciated.
Just plug the old hard drive into the new motherboard. 99% of the time the new mother board will automatically detect the hard drive that is connected. So there really isn't anything you have to do accept plug it in.

you probably won,t get it to boot off the original hard-drive. As that will be mated up to the old motherboard.
i,d suggest putting a new hard-drive in, then transfering any required data to the new drive, you should be able to transfer most of your files accross, but will have conflicts trying to copy some windows files. as they,ll be in use by the system.
