Having problems with your E-Machines T2862 PC Desktop ?

My t2862 powerlight will not come on but a green led comes on on the main board, nothing else happens. I also disconnected the pwr sw,hdd led and pwr led plugs and don't know which pins they go on. Thanks


Answers :

On the front panel header where the wires connect, there are two rows of 5 pins. The top row actually has 4 pins with the end one missing, and the bottom row has 5 pins. The first two pins on the top row are for the power LED. The next two pins are for the power switch. The first two pins on the bottom row are for the hard drive LED, and the next two pins are for the reset button (if your machine has one). The LED connections are polarized, so if you get the connector backwards the LED won't light but it won't be damaged. Just turn the plug around and put it back onto the pins if your power light or drive light don't work.

Now, as to the computer not starting. Assuming the problem isn't due to the power switch not being connected correctly, you might have a power supply problem, or the motherboard has failed. Both are common troubles.

Here's a picture (from helpwithpcs.com) of the plug on the cable from the computer power supply to the main board:

This is the view from the end looking at the front of the plug. If you connect the pin marked PS_ON (it's a green wire) to the black ground wire on either side (not directly across), the power supply will turn on and its fan start running if it's working properly. If it doesn't start up, replace the power supply.

If the supply starts normally, your motherboard is likely to blame. You can search online for a replacement if you want to use the exact part. Don't try to get one from e-Machines; there many other sources. You can also use any motherboard that will fit into the case (micro-ATX style) and uses the same processor and memory.
For future reference, use a piece of masking tape with something written on it so that as you remove things, they can be put back where they go. Either that or only remove one part at a time and put it back before disconnecting something else to prevent confusion.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
