Are there any visable brand/model markings on the mainboard?
I can't seem to find anything at all on that model of emachines other than the basic users' manual.

Emachine Problem

by bsummers In reply to RE: Emachine problems

The name of the motherboard is a Intel Seabreeze D845GVSR. I'm just not sure what to do with this computer...I don't want to spend more than about $100 on this computer because new ones are so cheap now....I would like to fix it if I could though....Thanks for your reply

I've been working on one with the same problem. It may just need a new power supply, so I would try that first. They use a standard ATX supply. The probable cause is a bad motherboard, and probably the poser supply too. It's recommended that you change the P/S when you change the motherboard anyway because it's probably the P/S that killed the board. This is a known problem with several eMachines models.

Step by step...

First locate the wire(s) to the front panel.
(Mark them up). If there is a wire(s) connected to a small button, this will be the "reset" (reset button). Locate the other wire(s) to the big button this will be your "power" or "pwr" wire. The other will be "hdd led".
Locate on your motherboard the pins for "reset" or "res", "pwr" (power), "hdd led".
You will need to have the label(s) of the wire(s) facing you (facing away from the motherboard) when you place them on to the pins, you might need a magnifing glass to place these wires correctly on to the corresponding pins.

Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.

loose wires

by dwyone4 In reply to Emachine problems

if you take a good look at the motherboard the base of the prongs are acutally color coded.
all you have to do is match up the colors for example.
the red and white cord would go on the prong with the red and white base the alignment of the cord is red and white on white and solid red on red and ect.

hoped this helpd you out
