I had the eMachines T2692 and mine did the same as the others. The CPU light would be on, but nothing else happened. I wanted to upgrade to a better mobo and cpu so I did it at that time. I gave my uncle the original PS from the emachines in question last year when the original mobo went poof and he hasn't had any problems out of the PS yet. The original setup I had in my emachines T2692 lasted me almost 2 years. It lasted longer than I thought it would.
