EMachine T3958 Won't start - Please help

\015 When I push the ON button on this computer, nothing happens. I notice that there is a green led light that is ON on the motherboard. Because I am an idiot, i assumed it was the hard drive and bought and installed that. Still nothing. No fan movement. No clicks. There is an extremely light, barely audible humming sound. You have to lean in to hear it.My questions are - how do you know if this is the power supply? If it's the power supply, then why would the green led be on on the motherboard? Should I be looking at replacing the power supply AND the motherboard?If so, where do i find a motherboard for this computer? Any help would be appreciated. thanks.\015

Answers :

The green LED indicates that the standby voltage is present which is what provides the power so the front button can tell the unit to turn on fully.
\015\012At that point, there are 3 possibilities; the power supply has a fault and won't turn on, the systemboard has a fault and prevents the supply from turning on, and/or a connected device is causing a short.
\015\012Normal troubleshooting would consist of:
\015\0121) Trying another power supply (just set the system on its side and you only need to plug in the two connectors to the systemboard after unplugging all of the suspect supply's wires) If it then works (yeah!), hook the power back to the drives, see it boot, turn it off, then replace the supply inside the chassis.
\015\0122) Using the test supply hooked up to the systemboard, remove any add-on cards (modem, video, any USB devices, etc) and unplug the IDE (hard drive cables) from the systemboard. If it then works, put things back, one at a time, to find out which is fried.
\015\0123) Reseat the memory and CPU chip and try one last time.
\015\012If it is still no go, the systemboard is bad.
\015\012If you get to that point, this guy will need new video drivers; but, is a newer board which will let you upgrade further in the future: http://cgi.ebay.com/eMachines-Seabreeze-Motherboard-D845GVSR-103292-102240_W0QQitemZ260328632136QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3c9ccbaf48&_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116
You need a voltmeter to check the supplies
\015\0125vdc & 12vdc are the two easiest becasue they are are the ones which are on the connector which supplies the Hard Drive you have just replaced
\015\012Red is 12v Positive Yellow is 5v Positive and the black wire is Neutral
\015\012You can remove the main board connector from the power supply to the MB but you need a copy of the Motherboard installation manual to tell you what supplies are on that connector
