Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

EMachine not powering up.

Hello. My sister owns an eMachine w3644.For the last couple of months it has worked more than well to fit the basic functions and all with ease.However, today she tried to turn it on, but the PC wouldn't power up.I took a look into it, but found nothing out of place. I'm no savvy, so I didn't mess around with the power supply or mother board (been reading it's a common issue).What happens with the PC is that even when it is plugged in correctly, after pressing the power button nothing happens at all.The only reaction there is is when I plug it in the leds on the keyboard flash, but nothing more.Hope anyone can give any insight on this, thanks beforehand.

Most likely the power supply has failed. You will need to replace the power supply.

When computer is turned on it makes beeping sound wont go out unless unpluged

The beeping sound is the POST, pre-operating system test trying to tell you what is wrong.

Unfortunately there is no manual available for this motherboard.

The chipset has a manual, but not a list of the POST beeps.

Laptop wont come on

Look at the label on the back of the charger for this Gateway 3701. You should see something like this:
  • Input: 100-240V, 50/60Hz
  • Output: 19V 3.42A
If the one you have is not the correct one, you can buy one online (E Bay) for less than $15.

I have a emachine that has been put awa for a couple of years and i can't remember how to connect all of the wires..


You can plugin all the wires according to color codes and to it's designated ports.

Please remember that all wires/plugs will not fit on to another port. There's only one port for each wire except for the power cable of your monitor. The power cable of your monitor can be connected on the power supply of your CPU(which is at the back & upper part) but other than the power cable of your monitor, all the other wires only have one port available for them at the back of your tower.

Hope you understand what I am trying to say.... Regards...

I need help connecting the power on cable and led cable as well as the hard drive light cable. for my emachine w3644

These cables are attached in the lower right corner of the motherboard. There are two rows of pins there. Probably 10 pins in all. They should be marked with letters something like hdled (hard drive LED), pwr (power light) pwr sw (power switch) spk (speaker) etc. Anyway, if you can't find markings, hooking the little plugs up to sets of the pins one plug at a time will tell you which works.You can't hurt anything by trying various combinations

My emachines ran fine last nite-tonight I get a 2-3 second beep with 2 flashes of the power button no power to monitor to see any messages or ability to get into anything. Fan is running. I believe it is...

Memory problem
Try reseating the Ram modules on the motherboard, if 2 inserted, replace one at a time and test in each slot. Check both modules are running at the same speed (eg: PC3200 / DDR 400)
Not uncommon for memory modules to fail. If you get it back running again, download memtest and run it for an hour to see if it flags up Ram issues

Does power on

if the machine is not yet a year old you can call the back to basics company and they will send out a replacement. This has happened on a couple of mine. If its older than that you can try, but will more than likely have to buy a new one
