I recently received an Emachines T2895 that won't power up. I replaced the power supply(tested the old and it was dead) with one that is tested and works. The computer still won't turn on, not even the fans run with the new power supply. The power switch on the back of the power supply is on. I pulled the 20 pin connector off the Mobo and plugged in the power supply. The CPU fan does run that way. Is the mobo fried or is there something else I'm missing. Maybe the power switch in the front?

Check all those power connections. If all else fails, I would say that maybe the motherboard went :whistling:

Just because the fans run doesn't mean the powersuply is good. eMachines have notoriously bad PSUs and I have replaced many. If you don't have a PSU tester you will need a known good PSU to test with. Powersuplies are generally cheaper than mainboards. For good eMachine help checkout emachineupgraders.

I used a known good PSU and still nothing. Oh well. I don't want to spend the money on a Motherboard(I don't have the experience to replace it anyway) so I'll probably just part it out.
