I have a buddy that has a emachine model W2646 pc and he asked me to help him find a replacement motherboard.
emachine model W2646
emachine original MB Intel Socket 478 MicroATX Motherboard w/ onboard Video / Sound / Ethernet (Does not have AGP Video, its on board)
Celeron 2.6 Ghz. CPU
I found a nice new motherboard for $49 at tigerdirect but the motherboard doesn't match up with the emachines original motherboard and to the back of the emachine case back.
I am worried the new motherboard wouldn't fit or match up with the emachine back of case. Will it fit or not?
He doesn't want to buy another case nor spend to much money or he would buy the great deal Dell has -- NEW Dell ---- PC / Monitor / Keyboard / mouse / speakers / printer all for ----> $299 .... CLICK URL take a peek http://www1.us.dell....s=19&l=en&s=dhs
He will fix or replace the motherboard in his emachine if its not too $$$ costly see?
I am not for 100% sure his CPU is still good either.
I checked the emachines power supply with a digi multimeter and it shows 11.98 DC volts on the power cord from it.
How do ya check to see if the CPU is still good?
Here is the link to the nice new $49 motherboard Item #: G452-2406
