Solid amber light, fan attempts to starts, but fails. I think it's a bad motherboard. How can I be absolutely certain?


I would suspect the power supply over the System Board.
You will need a large antistatic bag or antistatic mat plus a ground strap and a power supply checker.
Check the power supply using a power supply checker (about $10.00). Unplug the power connector on the mother board and plug the connector into the power supply tester. If you do not have a power supply tester let me know how many pins are on the connector and I will tell you how to test it with a volt meter. If any voltage is not present, replace the power supply. If you do not have -5 volts it was used for ISA slots and was completely removed from the ATX standard in 2004.
Do you have an onboard video card? If you do is that the video output you intend to use or a external video card? If you have onboard video connect the monitor to the onboard video output. Disconnect the AC power supply cord from the computer and attach a ground strap from your wrist to the bare metal of the power supply. The down side of static damage to components is you do not always see the damage immediately since static can weaken components causing future failure. Remove all cards from the slots except the video card if you do not have the onboard video. Be careful to touch only the edges of the boards not the connecters and place them on the antistatic mat or in the antistatic bag. Plug the power supply back in and see if the Power On Self Test (POST) displays the boot process on screen or beeps are audible. The error beep codes can change from the BIOS types but these are a few generic ones. It would be best to check your motherboard manual for a complete listing of error codes.
1 short beep – System is OK
No beeps – Bad power supply or system board
Continues beep – Memory error
1 long two short beeps - display adaptor

If no video is displayed and no beeps can be heard, turn the system off by holding down the power button for 5 seconds then unplug the unit. Verify the ground strap connection on your wrist and the bare metal of the power supply. Carefully remove the memory sticks handling only by the edges noting which slots they go in and which module was taken from which slot and place them on the antistatic mat or in the antistatic bag. Plug the power supply back in and see if a continues beep is audible. If yes, power off the unit and unplug the power cord. Put only one memory module in the first slot but do not put the same module in the same slot (swap them) if you have more than one module. Restore power to the system and see if the continues beep is no longer heard and you see video. If you see video and no continues beep than power the unit down and unplug the unit. Do the same for any other memory module which will help you determine if any modules are bad. This test is not a complete test but if any modules are dead you can identify them. If no video and no beeps the motherboard is the suspected problem.
If you have video and one short beep upon power on and all memory checks good. Power down the unit and unplug the power to the power supply inset one of the removed boards and try to boot the system to see if you still have video. If you do power the system down and repeat the same procedure for each card. If you do not have video suspect that card is bad.
Good luck and be careful to always touch the bare metal of the power supply with it unplugged before reaching inside the computer and touching any boards.

Computer powers on, no beep, monitor is blank


open the tower, on the mother board you will find the RAM card approx 6 inches long, take out the card and restart the comp, you should get the beeping sound and the mother board is fine, if no beep that indicates the motherboard has gone bad.
place the ram card properly into the same slot and then restart the computer. NOTE while putting your hand into the comp components always make sure that the pwr cord is pulled out or else you will get shock.
also check the cord at the back of the harddrive should be fixed properly. take it out and refix it at both ends . probable cause is there is some loose connection of the cord or the RAM.

On boot up the e-pc 42 mak es a series of high/low


If you have the manual that came with *********** board it will explain what those beeps mean. If you don't have it you should be able to download it from the manufactures web site.

You may find the trouble is with a piece you can easily replace.

What makes you think it is the on board vga?
If it is you might be able to add an external graphics card and then disable the onboard one in the bios.

There are a million and one places you can buy a new mother board.

If you are looking for a second hand one identical to the one you have then ebay may be a good a place as any to start.

Re seat your RAM and any other cards that plug into the Mother Board such as PCI cards then try starting the computer again. If that doesn't fix it, then you can uninstall devices and try to boot until you find the culprit, as those beeps you hear sound like hardware error beeps that can be caused by faulty hardware (even keyboards or mice) that plug into your computer. Eliminating all removable hardware should help you determine whether it's an add on component or if the Mother Board itself is bad.
Good luck

EMachine T3406 wont boot


is there a post beep when the pc is switched on. check the memory if it is a beep beep beep sound , also disconect the hard drive, dvd drive, floppy, and any usb devices and see if it boots up. if that fails it does seem like the mother board, also check the cpu fan has it stoped. also find out the power switch conector on the mother board, from the base unit switch to the mother board. also chech the power connector from the power supply to the mother board , on newer boards there are two that go to the mother board its self , a big one and a very small one .
