Help! My emachine is dead. I mean really dead. It will not do anything! When I plug it in, I do see one green light on the MB, and an almost inaudible (decreasing)whine. That is all.
I emailed the emachines support, but they were little help. They kept telling me to do POST, which is impossible at this point. They told me to rekove and reseat all connections, and cards, which I did. I have tried restarting, replugging, changing cords, and still, nothing. Husband used his meter on a few points, and there is life there, but nothing is working, with exception of that little bitty light on the motherboard!
The emachines tech guys said it was probably either my motherboard or my power supply. I am not afraid to install either one myself, but I must be sure which one is bad. Help Me!!!!
It is a 2 year old emachines W2888, running XP, nothing fancy.The power supply is only a 250. If I put in a new one, the emachines site suggests a 350.
Also, I have read that if I do not get their parts, my recovery disks will not work. Anybody have any experience with this??
Thanks for any input!
