Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
I have a EMachine T6534 which won't start. I shut
\015 I have a EMachine T6534 which won't start. I shut down the computer one day and when I went to start it the cpu fan would spin then and then the computer would turn off. After hitting the button 3 times the cpu fan would start up and go full speed, I didn't hear the harddrive spinning all I heard was the cd-roms going. I unhooked the harddrive (thinking there was a problem with that) and tried starting it and I had the same results. I ordered a new motherboard thinking that would be the problem, I just wanted some other idea's of what it could be before the motherboard comes in the mail. If I figure it out i'll just return the new motherboard.\015\012\015\012This is what the computer does in order:\015\012(I press the power button)\015\012cpu fan starts up \015\012cd-rom drives start spinning\015\012computer turns off\015\012(I go through this 2 more times then)\015\012cpu fan starts up\015\012cpu fan goes to full speed\015\012cd-roms drives start up\015\012no video\015\012cpu fan stays at full speed until I turn the computer off\015\012(the harddrive is unplugged)\015
Most computer repair shops have a tester that they can hook up to your power supply. You can also purchase one for yourself, they usually run $25-50, it may be viable to purchase one if the shop will charge that much to test.
I agree...sounds like a power supply problem. Typically a bad power supply will not damage the motherboard. It should still be functional.
