Well u know, not ALL of us are puter genius' and shouldn't have to be! One should be able to trust a company to NOT rip you off! How much do u have to pay for a "long lasting computer" and which brand? I've read so much online and consumer reports, and just ended up more confused! Seems everyone has a different opinion and think the generic, self made puters are the best? I got a shock unplugging a vacuum at Staples the other day so I dont' think I should try building one:)
And I still submitted my complaint about emachines to the BBB and I'm not the ONLY one.
PS I thought I just read that Acer bought Gateway in 2007??
 
What to do?

I have an emachine t2984 that died a few months after the best buy warranty expired (basicly worthless anyway).
PS died & apparently took the mb with it. New ps & green light comes on but that is it.

I see a lot of conflicting opinions on replacing the mb with a close facsimile & being able to use the existing hd with current data.
I have an intel d845gvsr board;

1. if I replace it with another 845gv series board will I be able to use the existing hd with data in place & reactivate windows?
2. be able to re-install the oem xp home?
3. have best results from buying another d845gvsr?

If there is no chance of using the existing oem windows xp that I have I will most likely get a much stronger board & processor.

Thanks in advance.
 
Yes i would have to agree the are junk. Now i have the same problem with my T2245. I need a mobo that i can drop right in and go with it? With the mobo use suggested can i use the same in mine. Here on the spec on the board that was in there.
Thanks
Tony

I INSTALLED IT, AND THE SYSTEM WORKS BETTER THAT EVER. MY SYSTEM IS NOW FASTER THAN BEFORE. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY THE SAME MOTHERBOARD. ANY MOTHER THAT HAS A 478 SOCKET WITH A FSB OF 400MHZ OR HIGHER WILL WORK PERFECTLY. IF YOU DONT BELEIVE ME. PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS. I WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP YOU. SO NOW MY COMPUTER IS NO LONGER A T2682 E-MACHINES, BUT A COMPUTER THAT I CREATED BUT WITH A NEW MOTHERBOARD AND IT WORKS GREAT. SO DONT GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!!! AND AGAIN YES YOU CAN PUT A NEW MOTHERBOARD ON ANY E-MACHINES AN MAKE IT BETTER THAN EVER. ALSO ONE MORE THING THE MOTHERBOARD IS AN ASUS MOTHERBOARD AND IT ONLY COST ME $45.
