Repairing a emachine 2895 MOBO and Power

  1. Decided to try my hand at my emachine T2895 repair. Lost power supply and Best Buy Geeks told me it took the MOBO. I purchased a new computer but thought I would just try to fix the old one....Replaced both Power and new MOBO and I believe I put all the jumpers on correctly(also removed old CPU and put in new MOBO) Powered it up and CPU fan comes on...No power to the CD or DVD and no image on the monitor.

    Questions: Did the CPU go as well? How do I determine if I need to buy a new CPU?

    Does the CD and DVD power go through the CPU first or do I have some jumpers put on incorrectly?

    Thanks for assist

    Usually when the PS in an eMachine goes bad it sends too much voltage through the ATX power connector so there is a chance the CPU was damaged. Call around and see if any shops in your area can test CPUs. Also make sure your new mobo is compatible with the old CPU. Also try clearing the CMOS on the new mobo.
