Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Emachines used to use a poor quality power supply made by Bestec, I believe the quality is supposed to have improved in the last few years but inconsidering the number of dead Emachines that wind up in my workshop I doubt it.
The problem you have is that being a poor quality power supply there is a very high risk that it damaged the motherboard when it went out.
If you can borrow a power supply just to test with all the beter BUT be carefull some Emachines are proprietary and the main motherboard plug is not always wired in the standard way.
Check here for a replacement power supply if you can prove your motherboard to be OK.
Have a look on this site for examples of standard and proprietary power supply wiring colours.
