Dead mobo e-machine T2824

I am trying to fix up an E-machine for some kids to use for games. I have an E-machine T2824 with a dead mobo. Do you know what kind of mobo I could get for a replacement? This machine was barely used and I hate to just trash it....

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

When my MIM2330 is switched on, some lights flash, and intermittent whirring noise, which stops after a few minutes, but screen completely black. Suggestions please!


could be your hard drive thats dead. You might want to go buy a new one. Depending on if you have a warranty on it you should pop open the case and try turning it on if its coming from the hard drive your hard drive died. It also could be a fan hitting something slowing the cooling process and overheat your processor.

T2893 e machines wont turn on


Since you are looking inside, try this. Trace the wires that come from the power switch back to the Motherboard. The wires from the switch will connect to two pins on the motherboard. Carefully jump those two pins with a screwdriver and the machine should turn on. I would suggest doing this with all drives and cards unplugged first.

Emachines T2824 Dead System


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

Mobo problems


Assuming the power supply is ok, and the pc is a few years old, it could be a flat cmos battery so check for the disc shaped 3V battery and see if it's flat. Whilst you have done that look for the JBAT1 terminal and put jumper on pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to 1-2. Look at the capacitors (tube shaped things) for the tops and sides swelling, if so mobo needs replacing. You need also to check the power supply leads to the motherboard and check its connected to mobo ok. Start up pc if it will and set the time and date in standard bios settings.
