Question about E-Machines eMachines Refurbished EMA SYSTEM BOARD MODEL T2984 eMachines (102257) PC Desktop
If I install a new motherboard that costs about $80, will I be able to use the windows XP software that came with my emachine? O r do I have to also buy a windows XP home edition CD and install it? I have tried just about everything to this computer, unhooking peripherals, making a boot disk, trying my recovery disc CD, bought a new power supply, new CPU celeron 2.3, nothing makes it work so fwr. The monitor works with another computer, but no pic on the emachine computer. The emachine t2385 just lights the power on light, that's all.
If the problem is in the motherboard, where do I go from here?
Thanks in advance!.....................clint
Nothing happens at all except these:
1: The cooling fans come on in the correct manner.
2: The "Power Light" comes on and just stays lit. No blinking!
3: The CD Drive at the top does open and close, do not know if it reads anything or not.
That is all, not anything else happens! I has an imperial motherboard #20021218 with a 2.3 celeron cpu. What is a good swap for the motherboard? Is this motherboard possibly fixed? I don't see any "leaking' capacitors or any burnt spots on the board. Thanks!

I think there may be another issue.. It could be the power supply.. Have you tried a new one?
Have you installed any additional ram lately?
You can use the old XP software with a new motherboard, but it can be a pain in the **** to set-up if it is the OEM version of Windows, or a Recovery Disk that came with your machine..
What you could do, if you bought another motherboard, find someone with a Genuine Windows XP disk, and use your Product Key to install it..
