Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Emachines 790 the front of the machine came off and the attached leads that run from the front cover (the on switch) to the main unit were disconnected. The 3 leads are for the Power switch; power LED; HDD LED. I am just wondering where to reconnect them (they have very small plugs at the end. Many thanks.

    Thanks,

    Having just looked on the motherboard its definately imperial G - I'm not sure where to look for the rest of the reference.

    Actually I think ive found the correct pins now - they were bent because of the way the leads must have been pulled out so didn't look like normal pins. It all seems to be powering up now - i just need to connect everything else now like the monitor to make sure it all works after the blow it suffered. There is a dent in the outer casing - im hoping its all safe still. Many thanks!

    i have just aquired an emachine 790 from a friend which he believed only to have a defective power supply. I changed power the power supply with a spare i had rated at 350watt origonal 250watt does this matter?
    After fitting 350watt PS nothing powered up at all only the fan on CPC turning, i then noticed the leads from the on off switch were disconnected, where do they go? do they need connecting?
    Thanks for any advice
    Chris

I'm still looking the pin outs aren't listed even in the manual.
I believe your board is a TRIGEM IMPERIAL G (intel845G)

    are the pin outs all in one row or is it 2 rows of 9 pins.

    To info how Trigem references the boards...it is by the chip set.
    If you have 845G it is Imperial G, if it is 845GV Imperial GV, 845GL etc.

My emachine will not boot in safe mode or otherwise, I get only a black screen what do I do to fix this?


Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) make sure they have dust free secure connections or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive)) if its a 40 pin IDE this will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs continue its cycle power and data to travel through every working device and have an end point so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps you

I haved a Emachine EL 1300G-01W that has crashed


Power it down, pull the power lead out, remove the cover from the base and check that all the leads (to the hard drive and the motherboard) are seated correctly - by physically pushing them in. Then push and hold the power button on the front for 10 seconds. Then replace the cover and power lead and try starting it up.

Trying restore emachine need full back up discs model 590/790


You can order a set of recovery disks here:

They are about $20 plus shipping, and you need to input your machine's serial number to insure you obtain the correct disks.

Hope this helps.

Unit will not power on, replaced power unit with 400 watt unit but push on button still will not power up.


Start Simple...!

I know this may sound too simple, but if you are replacing the Power Unit due to and old one blowing, it may well have blown fuses. Check them! in all mains plugs related to PC.

Also, are ALL you connections made. I.e. take off the front cover and check that the power button connector is attached to both button and board.

what are you running?
do you have NVidia Cards Running in Dual sli mode? - this is power hungry, you'll need 500w plus, i have a 600watt unit for this (i run 2 x 9600's in sli mode - i know 400w would never cope with the power demands of CPU's -quad- and GPU's - Dual - plus the 3 or 4 fans you will have on-board.

A little more info on the machine you are building/running would help.

a common old circuit tester would help out here also, to find out if power -when switched on at the main rear switch - is reaching the board, Are there any leds etc on at all?

I hope this is some help, .... Double check all connections...

otherwise post back with system spec and i will find a more precise and definite answer for you..

EMachines not powering up


You may have updated windows to a point that this old machine cant handle the revamp. Kick back to an older ops system, although that poses security risks. Your motherboard may also have given up. Best advice - upgrade, and retire this machine to the recycle bin.
