My compaq presario sr2010nx desktop won't turn on. I tried fooling with the off/on switch wiring and it came on for a short time. All was well. I hadn't used it for a week and tried to turn it...


Hi.

Sounds more like a power supply problem. First test the on/off switch by tracing the wires to where it connects to the mother board. The plug is usually marked "pwr sw" . Unplug the wire from the board & short out the 2 pins where the switch was plugged in using a small screw driver or any other conductive material. If the pc still fails to turn on, try replacing the power supply.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

short power switch pins on mother board, reset bios, short green wire to black wire on ATX connector with all drives etc.. power cables disconnected to test power supply. i suspect you have a dead motherboard.

EMachines T2958 Destktop Computer Power Problems


There are several things to think about here. First off, you have *six* wires ... 3 pairs ;-)

1. Your computer only *NEEDS* to have the power switch wires (the black/white pair) connected, so if you can figure out where to hook these up, the computer will work. The "LED"'s are just lights so that *you* can tell it's on and when the hard disk is being used.

2. I can't say for sure, but most manufacturers put these wires into some sort of arrangement that plugs into a one-way connector ... in other words, the wires are all ganged together in one "plug" and there is a tab or projection or slot that keeps you from putting the wires in the wrong way. If your wire sets are connected in one plug, it's should be fairly simple. From the sound of it, though, they're separate, so keep reading.

3. Make sure your computer is plugged into power. Take a pair of needle-nose pliers with rubber handles and place the point between each set of two prongs, so it is "bridging" between them. You will be completing a circuit with the nose of the pliers (it's fairly low power, but use the rubber handled pliers anyway for safety). When the computer starts, you'll have found the two prongs that the black/white pair should be attached to. It doesn't matter whether the black goes to one and the white to the other; it's just a switch.

After this, you've only got 2 wire pairs and 4 prongs left, so trial and error should allow you to connect the other wires. I'd start with the Green/White pairs first. When the computer is ON, the LED for power should also be ON.

Good luck with your troubleshooting!

Need to re-attach power button cable, hard drive


The manual for your computer is available from emachines, p.168 shows the info you need (replacing the front I/O panel)
http://downloads.emachines.com/userguides/8511279_eM_NG3_chassis_HW_ref_en.pdf

The good news is that you can't harm the computer by connecting the wires wrong and the bad news is they just won't work the way they are supposed too if not connected properly. The LED's must have the correct polarity to work.
In general, if you look real close (as in magnifying glass and flash light) you will see the ID for each set of pins is printed on the motherboard (pwr,rst,HDD,pwr sw,speaker) Just match what it says on the motherboard to what it says on the wires. Don't worry if you get the polarity wrong. If a light doesn't work just swap the two wires. The colored wires should be positve (+), though. The reset (rst) and power switch (pwr sw) wires don't require polarity.
These instructions are for most computers in general, YMMV.

E-Machine T2862 Will Not Power UP


I've the same problem, unfortunately, I disconnected the 3-plug connectors to the on/off switch, thinking they were a single plug. Now I don't know quite how to re-plug them.

The three color codes are black-white blue-white and red-white. I have the motherboard guide, but I would appreciate anyone's help reconnecting the 3-plug set correctly.
