Having problems with your eMachines E620-5885 Notebook ?

I have an emachine lap top I got back in 2005. Everything was working when the other day my computer just shut off. I checked the power cord and there was a tiny hole, but appeared to have power going through as there were sparks. I tried electrical tape for the hole just to see if that was the problem before I go buy another cord, but still the lap top does't turn on. Could it be a more serious problem?


Answers :

EMachine Towers have a history of the power supplies blowing the chipset on the motherboard. This may be a similar problem check the mobo chipset if there appears to be a small hole or burn mark the mobo will be u/s as you can't change the chipset.

Hope this helps
