Question about Intel CELERON 2.66Ghz CPU AND MOTHER BOARD (CPU4266CEL) Motherboard
I have an emachine T3828 with an intel C79792-103 motherboard. I just stopped powering on. I know the botherboard is getting power but no beeps and powersupply fan does not come on. I do get a little green light on the board when I plug the power cord in.
Geeze, after working on hardware for 27 years i love the short circut dummie. Anyway yes, it's the motherboard / yes the green light will still come on on that model and quite a few other models. Dont worry about repairing / i.e. removing components on the motherboard, it's a fruitless endevor but a great way to waste time. A motherboard for that model will cost about 100-150 bucks / easy replacement. It's actually rare for both the power supply and mother board to go out on a tower/mini tower type system. Older laptops had that type of prob. Those emachines were **** for the mostet part. On the other hand Gateway has really gone up in quality and i have been quite impressed with them in the last few years...

If the red light comes on and stays on on your mobo it is probably done; the green light just means the mobo is receiving power.

Your Mboard has become short circuit and need to be reset all parts by removing and clearing the CMOS.
Reset your Mboard, remove the all pheriperals like the processors and other plug in cards, remove the power cable from the powersuuply to the Mboard and then reset the CMOS. put in the again the hardware parts to the motherboard and your done.

I've got this same machine with the same problem. Changing the power supply did nothing. The motherboard still gets power, but the power button does nothing. Changed the power button, no good. Tried shorting the power switch pins, no good. The motherboard is bad... but then again, it's a $300 computer, what did you expect?

The board is fried. i have the same problem. that light means absolutely nothing, it is not uncommon for the power supply to go and take the mother board along with it. . .
