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

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)

My eMachines w3503 won't work anymore.


Does it say to go to 'setup' during first part of new start? If so, go there when it gives you that option and, if the first page looks ok except for the current time setting, select 'save and exit', then select 'y' and 'enter' (all entries from the keyboard as the machine is in DOS mode and the mouse does not work at this point). Retry a new start. Make sure that the operating system brings up the desktop (windows). Set the clock then shut down. wait a few minutes, restart again. If the time is off or completely wrong, You probably have a dead CMOS coin cell battery on the motherboard. After replacing it, you will have to do the 'setup' screen again.

Procedure for total pc restore on emachines T5085


Did you receive a restore CD along with your eMachines computer when you purchased it? If you have such a disk, that is the easiest way to do a full system restore. If you do not have this disk, you can obtain one via emachines support. This is the most recommended method for a full restore. If your machine boots up fine, you can check to see if you have a restore point in the Windows System restore. If you ever had to turn the system restore off (for virus removal or something), you will not be able to to a complete restore this way.

Good luck

P.S. If this information was helpful, please rate this solution. Thanks!

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
