Can you give us any other known history on this box. When is the last time it was known to be working?
Posted 27 May 2005 - 11:49 PM
is there any way that i can tell if perhaps the mother board is fried or if its just some dumb thing like the button to turn on the comp is busted or something? cause it's wires are plugged into the mother board so thats not it

What PSU's did you test it with? Specs please.
if you read the orrigional post it said i changed it with several working tested powers suppies
And would you be kind enough to tell me how you went about clearing CMOS?

Based upon your description this is where I would start your troubleshooting. You can argue all you want and if someone else wants to take another approach, thats their perogative. I'm not going to waste your time going through instructions on clearing CMOS and resetting your machine until the PSU issue can be put to bed.
If you are in doubt re: what I've said - why don't you try that power supply in a known good working machine and share your experiences with us.
edit: "that" power supply being the one that was/is in the eMachine. ie: the original micro ATX

my biggest susspicion is that his mom told me it made a horrid noise when it failed could it be the central prossesing unit?is there a way to tell which is the culprit?
and sorry if i appeared to combating you i was trying to say that i had already run the working pc well off of the pcus i was useing to try and run the broken computer. also like i said i can't get far enough to work with the cmos like i said the last noise it ever made was thatannoying buzz or beep what ever it is im tring to be as much help as i can
oh and you keep mentioning cmos is there a way to clear that with no power? like i said ive never had to deal with anything major on a mother board before
