Yea, it dont have to be an emachines specific board, it can be an even better one that is overall cheaper as well.

Wow...why get a emachine motherboard when there are so many cheaper ones to get? You can get a $10-$20 motherboard, with a AMD Duron Processor for about $40, and about 2G of RAM for about $100...everything else in the machine should work with it and guess what...they've UPGRADED!!! :D:D Oh yeah, you can get all of these items from (I'd also look in the refurbished area as well as you'll get some good deals there too. Plus customer reviews are helpful when picking one out.)

What is the connection sequence for the on/off switch to intel motherboard D9545gccrg1? the red/white power sw plug and blue/white power led plugs were pulled off motherboard by mistake and do not know...

A big problem is that eMachines does not support this configuration any more.The t5088 is almost 6 years old now, so the only support will come from someone who actually owns one and who can look at the connections. There is still support on Intel's website for the MB (look for D945GCC). But, remember that they have no control how the computer assembler uses the motherboard. They have a downloadable technical guide which is slightly useful. I looked at two different tech guides for that motherboard, but I did not see anything about blue/white cables. The reason for that is that eMachines want to keep their configurations a secret to make sure that you buy another computer if you have any problems. Perhaps the best solution is to look to replacing the computer. (You would be surprised to see the advances since you bought that eMachine!) If you choose to do that, you can carefully remove the hard drive(s) from the old eMachine and install it(them) as an additional harddrive(s) on the new computer. That way you still have access to your old files. Keep in mind that when you do that, you will lose the ability to use the programs on the old hard drive. You will need to re-install the old programs, but your data (documents, etc) should still be intact.

This option is not for the weak-hearted: you can ruin the motherboard if you connect wrong. The other option, if you are brave, is to disconnect everything from the motherboard except for the power supply (this way if your experimentation does not work, then you "only" fry the motherboard and not the other items) and try one configuration. If it works fine. If not you will have to try other configurations. You run the risk of ruining the motherboard if you experiment.

The T4010 emachine does not recognize the keyboard, but does recognize the mouse, is the answer a new motherboard?

If replacing the keyboard (try a USB keyboard, instead of a PS/2 keyboard) does not help, and the old keyboard _does_ work when connected to some other computer, then a new motherboard is the next logical step.

Emachine locks on windows splash screen

Try flashing the Bios, if this does not work you may have a processor problem or a problem with the operations of the northbridge or southbridge not functioning correctly causing the freeze problem.The only repair for this type of problem is to replace the motherboard. If the computer is over three or four years old this may be the situation. You should check the condition of all the processors before giving up on the board.Try removing the heatsinks and reapplying the thermal paste. Make sure to clean all dust and debris form the processors. Make sure all the heatsinks are making good contact with their processors. Be sure to clean all dust and debris form the inside of the case and under the motherboard. Check all the screws and standoffs, Just or make sure you are not having shorting problems between the motherboard and case. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Need correct MOB location for power switch on emachine W3410.

what kind of motherboard did you change..?
try to search in the internet.. just type the name of the board and including the diagram.. sample.."ASUS MOTHERBOARD POWER DIAGRAM"...


you will need to get a m/b with the same dimensions as the old m/b .

sometimes when you replace the m/b the operating system will reconize it
If it doesn't then you will need to get a xp cd disk and errase the old operating system. then load the new o/s

There are a lot of things that can cause this kind of problem. You might try swapping out the cable connecting the monitor if you have an extra, or if you're lucky and own another computer, you can try to use another monitor, or connect another tower to the monitor in question to see if another computer works better with it.

If you've determined that it's not the monitor or the cable, it's most likely going to be an issue with your graphics adapter. If you are not comfortable messing around with the interior of your machine, a shop could help you do further testing to see what needs to be done. Most likely, a new motherboard will be the solution, since your particular computer's graphics chipset resides on the motherboard itself.

As a final hint, I've seen a lot of Emachines with motherboard issues at my primary place of work. You might try contacting Emachines if the machine is less than a year old, since it would fall under manufacturer's warranty and you can get the board replaced for free.
