Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have an Emachine T2542 with Windows Xp. I had it turned on yesterday and was in the middle of editing some photos, when it shut off. There was not a shutdown screen or anything. It just turned completely off and now it won't turn on. I checked the outlet on the power supply it's plugged into and it is getting power.
It looks like your computer's power supply unit is gone. This is common with the eMachine T2542 series. Unfortunately, sometimes this destroys your motherboard as well.
HERE is a thread I found on another forum relating to the same problem. I guess you'd be better off trying to invest in a better machine. Sorry I can't be of more help. But do go through the link I posted, you may find it helpful.
Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.
If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
