Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines T3830 PC Desktop ?

T2893 desktop did not power on when I hit the power button

\015 Looks like I need a new motherboard? How can I ensure that I am getting a replacement that fits with the eMachine T2893 Case; present HardDrive; and CD? Will my OS still work at bootup?Thank you,\015

Answers :

If you can find someone that has the same model, that is the best way to make sure it fits. Some other motherboards will fit, but you may have to do some work to get them to fit. The best way would be to try to do some research on your particular motherboard (mobo) on the internet. Sometimes it will have a manufacture’s name and model on it, try googling it and see what type it says it is (ATX, mini-ATX, AT, etc). One problem you may have is the power button connectors may not be compatible with your new motherboard if you get something besides an emachine mobo. If you are good at electronics it will not be much of a problem for you.

\015\012Unless you get an exact e-machines mobo, your OS will most likely not work at startup. Windows XP does not like wholesale changes like a mobo. When it sees that a major configuration change has happened it sometimes freaks out. Sometimes it will just ask you to re-activate windows other times it gets stuck in a reboot loop. Hard rive and CD rom should still work, provide you do not get too new of a mobo. Older HDD and CD drives were IDE connectors, newer ones have SATA connectors. Unless your mobo and power supply unit (PSU) have the correct connectors you will not be able to use them.

\015\012To the poster who asked if it could be anything else besides bad mobo. Yes it can occasionally be a bad power supply unit (PSU). A bad PSU does not necessarily mean no power, just not enough power to run the computer. You can try swapping it out with another one of equal or greater output watts. You can try removing the power connectors from the drives and then remove the memory and see if it changes the boot up procedure of your machine. More beeps, different beeps, no beeps, etc. Add one component back at a time to test. Make sure you get the same results and not just a one-time fluke start up. If a memory stick is bad, it usually is bad. A power supply or mobo can be flaky and fail some times and not others.
