Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

No power at all. Changed PSU and still no luck. MOBO light comes on but nothing else. I need to check the connections to the J9G1 jumper too.

\015 My organization was donated an emachine t2885 - I plugged it in and hit the on button. Nothing happened. The light on the MOBO is on, but nothing else comes on. I have tried another PSU and still no joy. I need to check the connections to the J9G1 jumper, and then to move on to more serious possibilities. How about a connection chart for the J9G1 jumper and some wisdom from the true Guru's out there.\015\012\015\012Regards\015\012\015\012Exafricanson\015

Answers :

If you changed out the power supply, and checked all the cables, checked and made sure the power switch was on, checked the switch for 110/220 on back of computer, confirmed it was plugged into a good socket, check the cable that connects the motherboard to the power supply with a voltmeter that may help in isolating the problem. The small motheboard light is on beause the CMOS battery is still supplying the board with some electricity.
\015\012On the jumpers, couldn't get you a diagram they are not avabilable; cover pins 1-2 is normal mode; cover pins 2-3 is to configure BIOS; none the BIOS will attempt to configure itself but you have to boot from a cd rom or diskette. Hope this helps. If none of those works then its the motherboard.
\015\012Pls rate this solution.
