You can use an aftermarket board. Just find one that will accept your processor and memory type.

That machine should have a Intel Celeron D 2.93GHz
with PC2700 RAM

There are a number of boards that you can use that will be a lot cheaper then ordering from Gateway.

    The CPU socket is an LGA775, the PC2700 RAM is 184 pin.

    Might make searching a little easier.

I'm trying to "rebuild" an old desktop computer of mine just to play and learn new things. It's an Emachines T2625 . Everything is in working order, but the integrated video seems to have went bad... I...


just start over and buy a motherboard and processor and memory and plug your stuff into it. you will need an operating system because the emachines operating system only workes with an emachines motherboard. emachines is the cheap brand from gateway and i have had nothing but trouble with those machines. Hope this helps and good luck

Emachines t3958 wont power on


The green light means there is standby power to the motherboard.
Power button may be broken, does it 'click'?
With the case open, do any of the fans start, then stop?
If yes to the above, you may have a bad power supply. Can you borrow one to try?
Last test before it's the chip or mother board:
Remove the connectors for power from drives, video card, all but the motherboard (Do NOT disconnect small connectors on the motherboard, just POWER from the drives and video card)
Remove any expansion cards except video. Note where they go.
Try again. If it starts and fans run ok (video may not work but fans go normally.), shut it off, reconnect the video card. Try again, power off, connect or install one thing at a time until it stops running again. The last item plugged in is the culprit.
Always one item, power on, try it, then power off, try the next one.

Your power supply has gone out. This could have been caused by a surege, dust or bad power outlet.

You can purchase a replacement off eBay for under $25.00.

Upgrade mother board t3958


to upgrade a motherboard... you would need to replace it with another one, on a motherboard you can upgrade memory, cpu, video card, hard drive, parts that are connected to it, but you don't really upgrade the motherboard itself..

Computer will not power up


I attempted to find this information for you and was unable to. Usually the type/model of the motherboard in a prebuilt PC is determined by printed information located by the CPU/Memory slots.

The downside to most prebuilt PCs you buy in the store, is these motherboards are generic motherboards. Gateway orders them from a company that makes them in bulk specifically for their needs. You would be better off trying to buy a new motherboard that matches the specifications of your current one. Here is the specification page for this Gateway PC. You would need to find a new motherboard that matched most, if not all of these features. However, worst case scenario, you may consider contacting Gateway to find out if they still have this board and how much it would cost to buy or have them replace it.

Emachine front panel power switch


Here's the Support Link for your desktop. Look under User Guides, Hardware Reference. Also look on the motherboard for markings such as PW or PS and an indicator to where the wire goes.

Sounds like a new power supply needed...could be motherboard, but a power supply is $29 and a new motherboard could be up to $250 from GW. Good luck.
