Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have an eMachines D2823... It's older, but reliable and isnt used for anything beyond internet use. When I push the power button, no lights or power. Checked power cord and outlets. Replaced power supply with comparable 250w supply and green light on MB stays light when plugged in and faint humming sound coming from the area near the 20-pin connector. To verify I didnt get a bad unit, I re-installed the old PS, and now noticed that it also lights the green light and makes the humming noise somewhere on the MB. Removed the front cover for access to power switch in case of bad switch and have "straight wired" the black/white wires together to eliminate switch failure, still no power-up. I'm out of options without electracuting myself to repair the machine! Help?
You may have updated windows to a point that this old machine cant handle the revamp. Kick back to an older ops system, although that poses security risks. Your motherboard may also have given up. Best advice - upgrade, and retire this machine to the recycle bin.
