Ok hi guys I will appreciate any help i can get, because i am lost. lol This is what's happening, i went to a friends place to fix his emachines. as soon as i heared emachines, i said "ohhhh crap" well at first they was no sign of life on this emachines, so i changed out the power supply . The motherboard lights up fine, like it is receiving power. I can tell that the mobo is ok but when i push the power button, nothing happens. I have also tried taking out the batery on the mobo for 30 seconds. I also took apart the computer and tried powering it on, by myself manually but still no results. lol is the mob dead or what in gods name is going on. Oh ya and through my quest to find answer, i also unpluged the power button pins and re-aranged them but yup, that didnt work. am not an expert, so obviously i must be doing something wrong. THANKS IN ADVANCE>>!!!
