Unfortunately, E-Machines are well known for their power supply problems. I have a room full of them.

Let me guess, you can hear something rattling around in the power supply, right?

When this happens, a component blows cleanly off of the board inside, and sends a voltage spike to the mainboard.

With any luck, the hard drive logic board wasn't damage, and you can recover your data with another PC.

How do you disable the onboard graphics on an emachines C2825? I am attempting to install a Sapphire Radeon HD 4650 AGP video card, but my computer will not boot when i plug in the new video card. I have...


First of all that motherboard is too weak to fully use that video card, you could get the same framerate in games using a video card 2 generations older. 
Proper way of installing a new card:
1. uninstall the driver of the old one and reboot in BIOS - in there put all settings to auto;
2. shutdown the pc and install the new card; connect the monitor to it;
3. boot into BIOS, disable the onboard video card and reboot;
4. boot normally and install the driver.

Power pack fan not booting but there is power on motherboard


Do you mean the power supply fan or the processor fan? Of the assemblies in a desktop, the power supply is the least reliable and the internal fan the most unreliable part. Since a failed fan can allow other parts of the supply to degrade, I recommend replacing the supply, not just the fan.
In eMachines, these are standard form factor (ATX) supplies so you would only need to order the same or higher power rating to have it compatible with your case.

Need picture of mother board for Emachine C2825


I've built a PC myself, each connector had text on it to say what it was and one arrow on it in relief, don't know wether that indicated plus or minus anymore.
Anyway, I recommend you just plug them in, and try to boot the PC. If it doesn't boot, switch the Power SW connector around, then it should boot. Do the same with the LED connectors, and it should work just fine!

Good luck,
Yannick.

I have an emachine T2984 that won't boot. No noise of any kind. I had another emachine T2625 that was working. I took the power supply out of the T2984 (that wouldn't boot) and put it in the T2625 and it...


Power supply sounds fine. If the pc won't power up it could be your motherboard. If the pc is powering up and you get a 'no signal' on your monitor it could be your gpu.

Won't boot up


Emachines are notorious for motherboards and power supplies frying after a power outage. Why? Even after 10 years of working on desktops from all manufacturers... this eludes me.

1)The power switching chip or chipset usually goes first. My best guess is be casue the power supplies in these desktops are VERY inexpensive. IT's amazing if they last longer than 1 year.

Replace power supply.. if doesn't boot still... replace motherboard.

2) If i'm waaay off and you get a boot screen or emachine logo.. but no windows logo... then hard drive crashed or file system got shot...

Replace hard disk and reinstall windows.. contact data recovery specialist. DYI data recovery .. causes more data loss... speaking from experience.

Emachine t2642 power supply


Apparently this model has a bad motherboard, which manifests as a power warning and eventually a refusal to boot up. You can replace the power supply (as far as I know, any generic one 250-watt or better will work) but it's unlikely to help. You can buy a new motherboard (and new power supply, if you want to) direct from eMachines, but it's also likely to fail pretty soon. Your best bet is to get a new computer (NOT an eMachines one) and put your hard drive in as a slave so you can get your data off.
