Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

My e-machine desk top does not power up.

\015 I believe that the problem is with the switch. is there an easy way to fix this problem?\015\012thanks\015

Answers :

There is a way to bypass the switch and start the computer, just to verify that the switch is the actual problem....the only thing is it requires you to open up the computer case. If you are not comfortable doing this, I would take it to a computer shop. I don't want to see you damage your computer!

Here are the directions:
  1. Open up the computer case
  2. \015\012
  3. Find the wire that is connected to the front switch
  4. \015\012
  5. Follow the wire to the motherboard and disconnect it from the 2 pins it is connected to
  6. \015\012
  7. Take a screw driver and touch both pins at the same time (Picture Below). This will create a connection, as if you pushed in the switch and should start the computer.

Now if the computer doesn't start , then you know the problem is not the switch and will have to further troubleshoot it. If it does start, try going to e-bay and searching for a replacement switch
