Question about E-Machines eMachines Refurbished EMA SYSTEM BOARD MODEL T2984 eMachines (102257) PC Desktop
I'm trying to fix my 'mum in laws' (MIL) PC (see above). In basics it will not start when powered up. That said I did get a response when I turned it on and tipped it up onto one side..bingo! Unfortunatly that doesnt work anymore. So far I have tested the HD in a different machine and all is okay. I've changed the cable from the HD to MoBo (tested as working in another machine). Now, 14 months ago my MIL had the same problem and took it to a computer shop. They told her it was the MoBo BUT changed the PSU, 512 RAM and the MoBo. It now has a ATX400 PSU, a AsRockP4V M890 and 512 of Kingston RAM. I cant believe the MoBo is fried again nor that the power supply has given up the ghost. When I do turn the machine on I get its amber light at the front but nothing else. The fan on the Celeron chip works probally meaning there is power coming from the PSU but getting to the MoBo...??? Any help you lovely people can offer I would happily except..I dont have much hair at the best of times :O)
I have this type of computer (just sitting around , not for my main computer) and I had a smilar problem. I took it to a guy I know (who owns a computer repiar shop) an he said the motherboards on this model go haywire about four years after initial power-up. On mine, it caused the power supply to blow-up (literally) and blew out most components. (Floppy drive, Sound card, USB ports, Keyboar/mouse plugs)
I really don't know if What he said is true, but I replaced the power supply, and now it works fine.

If your power supply is not plugged into a surge protector, you may be having issues with your line causing your power supply to fail. Do you get any beeps? The bios typically will beep to give you an indication of what is going on?
