Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Emachine was purchased new 3 years ago last Oct. I turned it off one night, next morning when turned on it acted as though were not plugged in. I checked back of pc as well as surge protector plugs, all were fine. Purchased new surge protector, still no power to pc. Had no problems when using prior to turning off. Ideas on what would cause this?
This is a T2824.
Hi hearalso, down to the basic's. Replace power cord.
No help there than, remove the case's side panel to expose the motherboard. (Normally it is the left side panel while facing the front of the PC.)
Look closely for a small (green in color) led light. The power cord must be connected to the PC & connected to you're power strip but do not press the power on button on the PC.
The green led tell's you the board is receiving 5volts. Check all connections. Un-plug & reconnect every data & power connector in your PC. (Double check). There is a fuse inside your power supply that may have blown. Check you're manual page, Approva Statements B-1. Fuse Warning Instruction Caution.
Check fuse in power supply. (Unplug power cord before opening).
If you can not power up the PC after all of the above than if possible, swap out the power supply.
Replacing the power supply is the last step.
If you have more questions, feel free to ask.
