  1. I have an emachine T2984 that won't boot up...no lights, no fans, no noise. I replaced the power supply (ATX-250-12E) and still the machine won't do anything. The unit is two years old and I am interested in fixing it myself. Does anyone know the fix for this machine?

    When your power supply blew it took the motherboard with it. You may be able to find an inexpensive replacement Emachines board on ebay. I looked and there isn't one at the moment. If you purchase a new (non Emachines) motherboard your Windows install CD will not work on it. Your current motherboard should be a SEABREEZE T3

    Thanks for the reply. I suspected the mobo and you confirmed this. I'll check on ebay.

    I believe it's fried. I'm going to buy a new PC
