Emachines T2824 Dead System

I've been trying to fix this computer and i cant think of anything else that is wrong with it but the motherboard. i've tested the PSU, i've checked the whole computer to make sure that there wasn't any short circuits in it, i've checked the RAM to make sure that was ok and i even checked the cards like Video, Ethernet, Modem, etc with no luck. when i plug the computer in, the light on the motherboard turns on but when i unplug it, it immediately goes off. i know that motherboards have capacitors that hold the voltage at least for a couple of seconds, could that mean that their is something wrong with the motherboard?

If it is powering off like that it usually means that the mobo is bad, look at the capacitors on the mobo. if any of the tops are raised or corroding, it needs replaced. also if you see any part of the motherboard that is darker or orange, it is from a lot of heat, which means that parts may have gotten too hot and melted.

usually for an emachine, the mobo's are usually more than the unit is worth. best solutiong would be to get ready to invest in another unit

No Nvram Found


NVRAM should be your BIOS, if that's not found you've got something wrong with your motherboard. I don't think it's a dead CMOS battery but you could try changing it, dead CMOS batteries usually say bad checksum.

edit: try removing any hardware you don't need for the computer to boot then if it works, add them back one by one __________________

My computer won't turn on. I cleaned the Air spinner thing, checked the mother board, and everything was fine. The computer is an Emachines T2824. Can i have some assistance on how to get it to turn on?


If the machine is doing nothing at all when you press the power button, chances are your Power Supply Unit (PSU) has failed. If this is the case, the only way to fix it, is to get a new PSU.

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.

I loaded window xp in my emachinest2824 coputbut the other device


If you have various devices showing yellow exclamtion marks, then you may need to update the drivers for them, or the drivers for the devices are not installed.

Write down the make and model numbers of the devices then do a google search for the relelvant drivers to download. If you have trouble finding the drivers, let me know and I will see what I can do

I hope this helps

EMachine T2824 does not turn on. Power cord/power supply seems O.K.


There are just too many eMachine models to be familiar with every one, however, as a preliminary inspection, remove the side panel, and turn the computer on to see if you see a green "Health" light. This will give you an initial clue as to how to pursue the problem. eMachines have historically had power supply problems. If you do not see a green health light on the motherboard, then your power supply is defective. A power supply supplies various voltages + - 5V, + - 12V ,etc. A power supply can be easily tested by a local shop with the proper test equipment. You might start there if you are a DIY! Short of that, you can purchase a power supply for under $65.00.

Dead mobo e-machine T2824


Hello leeinsc,

The T2824 uses a microATX motherboard, any manufacturer supporting a Celeron (Intel) CPU will be ok - therefore, I would think any motherboard of that size will fit the case. There seems to have been a lot of problems with this model and the mobos. Putting $280+ into an exact replacement wouldn't appeal to me. Especially when $60-80 will get the job done!
You will want to make sure that the rear plate on the case is of standard size to fit the new mobo however.
To cross-reference the current mobo, there should be some stamped markings on the board. Usually they are located (either) around the edge, or near the middle. Cross that using Google - you should easily find a replacement.

Regards,
ChancesR
