Hi all,
Just like to start off by saying i am a relative noob when it comes to computers. I know a little bit about software but not much about hardware.
I am attempting to fix an Emachines T2895. When powered up the green power button light comes on, both the power supply fan and the mother board fan start, and the machine emits one long beep takes a puase and then continues beeping. Their is no signal sent to the monitor. I contacted emachines support and they simply told me it was a hardware problem. From reading other forums i have heard emachines are notorious for bad PSUs could this be the problem even when both fans start and the light comes on? Is it likely the motherboard is also gone? Anything i could try would be appreciated thanks in advance

Carefully count how many times the computer beeps. I think Emachines use award bios but this website also has AMI and other bios beep codes if you need them.

Most likely you have a memory problem. Reseat the memory and try again. Replace the memory with known good memory next.
