When a power supply goes bad they are generally not worth repairing given the low replacement costs these days.
I have bought a lot of replacement Dell power supplies from this place over the years.

Remember a lot of Dell power supplies and motherboards are proprietary so you cannot use generic parts.

As long as you're not talking about hooking it up to anything else, as in a hobby project, then the best thing to do is go out and get yourself a power supply tester. Office Depot still sells Antec ones in my city for under $20, and I recently bought one or two over eBay, direct from China, for under $4--shipping incl--each!
You just plug the tester up to the PS, plug the PS into the wall outlet, turn it on, and ...there you go!
Just one word of warning--be careful with Bestec power supplies--nothing personal against the company itself, but they should all be replaced before they damage your computer. I never worked on any eMachine with one of these power supplies, which had a hardware-related problem, where there wasn't damage to the motherboard due to their Bestec power supplies. They are not properly 'fused' to protect your computer against spikes, surges, etc.

When I turn on my computer it runs for a couple of seconds and then stops.


Unplug everything inside the computer, except the motherboard and the front panel power on switch. Power up the computer. If the PS fan continues to run, (power supply doesn't shut down)and the CPU fan runs, then power off the unit and reinstall each device, one at a time, turn the power supply on after each device is installed (and off, before installing the next device).
You can not easily start the power supply if it is not connected to the cpu motherboard.
If the power supply shuts down with only the motherboard attached, then you will need either another power supply, to test the MB, or another MB to test the power supply.

How can you tell if a Dell power supply for a PowerEdge 2900 is good? Should the lights at least indicate when power is connected even with the PS is removed from the machine? How do you best determine if...


You cannot test the power supply on the bench just by connecting it to the mains power. You need to know which pins on the connector to activate the power supply and you need to connect a load to the power leads.
The best way to test the power supply is to leave the power unit connected to the computer power up the computer and test a spare 4 wire power connector with a multi-meter. Leave the other power leads connected to the various drivers.
If computer's power LED should light up then test the voltages.
The Red and black wire should read 5 volts.
The Yellow and black wire should read 12 volts.
If the power LED does not light up, check the mains lead in another appliance to see if the mains lead is OK.
If the mains lead is OK then most likely the switch mode power supply has died.

Emachines w3507 power


detarch all accessories or hardware connected to the system , then bring out the power pack itself out completely look for a soldering led to test the functionality of the power pack itself if it rotates the fan of its pack by looping the first hole to the third hole cable in the power pack connector that will head into the motherboard. therefore, check the mother board if there is any damage on it like some component if all this is false . then plug the power pack to the outlet and fix the connector of the power pack to the motherboard after detaching both cd drive , floopy disk drive leaving the hard disk and the memory . then change the memory card and press on the system there should be a solution from all this . the problem should be from the Memory not to be able to start up the system but go through those process i have given you before concluding it was the memory ok....

Power supply has several voltages. Just because the 5v power is active doesn't mean all the voltages are OK. You need to have the power supply tested for 12v and 3.3v. A quick test is to unplug all the wires from the power supply. There is a single green wire on the motherboard main plug. Connect (use a bent paper clip) that green switch wire and any black wire. Plug in the power supply and it should run (fan starts)

Hello there martinsjak.

Here's your GEEK-steer ...

First, I'll presume you have of course "lamp-tested" the wall power outlet, as well as the power strip outlet you using, and that also the power cord is in good repair.

With that out of the way, kudos are in order, because your suspicion of the Power Supply Unit (PSU) is very well founded. It is THE most common PC component to fail. Although it could also be the case power button/switch itself, it's likeliest to be the PSU. But regardless of which, the easiest way to find out is to test the PSU.

You have three options:
  1. Manually test it using a multimeter ... Yuk! Only a guy with a plastic pocket-protector (and thinks it's impressive) would pick this one.
  2. Install the suspect PSU into a KNOWN GOOD working PC. If the PC powers up, you know the PSU works. If not ... well you get the picture.
  3. Test it using a PSU Tester. This is a surprisingly desirable option. Why? Because PSU testers are not very expensive, and if you're like most everyone else in this modern era, you'll be in need of testing more than just this one over the course of time. Check out this very solid choice for a Coolmax PS-224 ATX Power Supply Tester.
Which of the above three is your call. Easy-peasy, yeah?

Good luck to you, and thanks for posting back ...

Your power supply is fried. I had the same problem with my Bestec ATX 250 power supply. I fixed the problem by installing the StatTech model: ATXPOWER250. It was easy to install and works well. It is almost identical to the original but more quiet. I got it for $29 at MicroCenter.com. Also at online Newegg.com, Radioshack.com, Provantage.com, June 20,2009

E-machine Model D2246 does not power up


E-machines are notorious for having weak power supplies. Although not impossible, it is unlikely the motherboards are damaged.

You may also look online for rebuilt power supplies that are beefed up from the originals.

Be sure you have a good surge suppressor and surge suppression on your phoneline if you use dialup. I also recommend surge suppression on your ethernet connection as well.
