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....
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.

first of all go to google and type adobe flash player and download it from there...then install it and here you go..your problem is fixed...bt remember one thing it's better to see videos on google chrome or any other browser except internet explorer...
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.
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.
Try updating your direct x
if that don't work you can try a system restore
set it to a date when you know your games worked
then restart if that did'nt solve it then maybe you need an updated version of internet explorer
if taht don't do the trick then you can download mozilla foxfire
after each instruction you try make sure you restart before you try a game again
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
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.
