Emachine t2984 - need to diagram to install power & hard drive

\015 I am reinstalling a new power supply and old hard drive in a t2984. I know the hard drive is good - had moved it to another machine when the power supply died. I can't get the new power supply to work so wanted to make sure I had it cabled properly. Does anyone have a diagram to show what cables are connected? I know 2 go into the motherboard. I've plugged the 2 in, but since it isn't working I wanted to double check the cabling.\015

Answers :

There is 2 main cables you have to worry about to feed power to the system. One looks like a big rectangle block with a mess of wires attached. Make sure he is hooked into the system. Then if its an newer unit you will find a plug that has square look to it with just 4 wires attached and should plug in nearby the processor. (only newer units us this) Also if your dealing with the cant turn it on issue make sure to remove all cards off the board like the NIC, Video Card, and Audio Card. I am unsure as to weather or not your system comes with everything onboard or if its stand alone cards. If you still cant power on theres a bigger issue at hand and that maybe that your motherboard has blown.
