You will need to get a m/b with the same dimensions as the old m/b .

sometimes when you replace the m/b the operating system will reconize it
If it doesn't then you will need to get a xp cd disk and errase the old operating system. then load the new o/s

Samsung hd161hj problem


If his hard drive responds in safe mode then the bios is detecting his hard drive right and nothing you can do will make it any different. It doesn't matter what the bios is set like on his computer and how it installed.

The problem is you have two different machines. When windows installed on his computer it detected his motherboard chipset, the motherboard add on, the ide and psi ports and installed the drivers for his board. Now you're installing it on your computer with a different motherboard, different chipset, ports etc.. Windows doesn't autodetect and install motherboard drivers like it does other peripherls. Unless the motherboards are amost identical, when you put a hard drive with Windows installed on another system into a different system Windows will 99% of the time fail to run. Most the time you'll get a blue screen of death with a driver name on it that failed. You can configure that drive as a slave and put both drives in and boot off yours and see his.

EMachines T2824. Does nothing but light on mainboard coming on...


This is a motherboard problem. You'll need to replace it. Although, it may be cheaper just to buy a new PC (eMachines are never very expensive, or well-made for that matter)

Have emachines W2060. Can't get screen to show


Hi Joe,

Could be one of several things:

1) Monitor cable connection loose.
2) Video card (if you have one) not seated, or bad.
3) RAM module not seated, bad, or wrong kind. (If you have not messed with the RAM, probably not one of these.)
4) If your video is integrated into the motherboard (no video card) your motherboard may be bad. Installing a separate card could correct this.
5) Bad monitor.

Have you made any changes to your system when this happened?

Try to connect another monitor/cable to your computer and try your monitor on a friend's computer to see if it works.

Comment back with any updates.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Emachine t2742 I also have a wiring problem!


gtater,
It's ironic that you ask me this question today-- i am just now carrying in another eMachine computer to fix. Anyway, unfortunately I do not have one that is the same model as yours (T2742). However, I did some quick research and found that yours has the same exact motherboard as the T2898 which I made the diagram for!

The following eMachine models share the same motherboard (and thus the same front panel layout):
T2742 T2796 T2798 T2824 T2885 D2823 T2862 T2896 T2898 T2958

For further reference, I would like to share this diagram for the eMachines T6544 in case someone else may need this model. This is the computer I just carried in... might as well share.

By the way, the power switch doesn't need to be oriented any particular way (positive and negative), which is why the switches are not labeled as + or -. Switches can be wired either way and they will work the same.

Hope this helps.

One problem, followed by another, followed by another


it seams that the motherboard has some power problems. Check on the motherboard for burned or blackened components, or for capacitors that are looking like they are going to blow (inflated on the top), u can do the same to the power supply.
If so change it !
Also maybe the power of the house has problems that the computers power supply cant handle (that can ruin the motherboard or other components )
U can also try to isolate the motherboard from the case (there might be a short between the motherboard and the power supply through the case metal ... )
