A: eMachine motherboard replacement HELP Please?

Emachines suck!!
I have an emachines and the motherboard died when the power supply went out. I can not buy the exact motherboard from emachines. There for I lost all my data on my hard drive since emachines has a license agreement with windows that wont allow the windows that came with the machine to run with any other mothboard then the one it came with. Best thing for me to do and what I would suggest to you is take the parts you have and build another computer and buy your own windows CD. These billion dollor companies love stickin it to us.........

Hello everyone,
Found this subject on the emachine motherboaerd on a search. Have a T2245 that the motherboard has gone bad. It's the imperail GL VE 20021218 mobo just wanting to know what would be the good replacement mobo would be for that. Any suggestions?

A:Emachine motherboard replacement

Remember that the board you use must accept the CPU of the one in your failed eMachine board.
The hard drive is likely good, but the Windows on it will detect that the motherboard has changed, and then it will shut down. Sometimes the eMachines recovery disk will work if you run it in repair mode, or if you run a full new install, but usually not on that T2245 model. It is designed to seek out the code on the eeprom on the motherboard to verify that it is allowed to run a repair or install on the new equipment. So you may have to buy a new copy of Windows XP. Your memory will be good, but the power supply will not be good, or in the rare case when it is good, it may not have enough power for the new motherboard.
So expect to buy a new motherboard, a new CPU heatsink and fan, thermal paste, and a windows disk.
Or just buy a decent rebuilt Dell or HP or Gateway, and an external USB enclosure so you can rescue the data on the old eMachines drive and move it to the new or used drive. It will cost you less than the replacement board, power supply, and Windows.

A handicapped friend of ours has an emachine W3503 with a bad motherboard. We are trying to help him get his computer back up and running as inexpensively as possible since he is living on a very low fixed income. Can this be replaced, and if so, what would I order?
Thank you

A:Emachine W3503 replacement motherboard?

Probably Not the Answer You Were Hoping For.......

The problem with replacing the motherboard in an Emachine is the extravagant price they will charge you. Also, the power supply is most probably also bad, either by virtue of it killing the board, or being killed by it. I absolutely do not recommend buying a board off Ebay, that's sort of asking to be ripped off.

Here's the specs on your machine Series&model=W3503

That's pretty much bad news as well, since the Emachine in question has DDR type memory, which would likely have to be replaced with any board you might find today.

The standard treatment for this is to buy a different aftermarket board, and a decent PSU. However, the copy of Windows that came with the machine dies with the board, and would have to be purchased also.

This is representative of a type of board that would fit your chassis; and allow you to use your CPU. These boards are about 50 bucks. A replacement Emachine board might be on the order of up to 200 dollars. The upgrade parts I mentioned can be had for about 300 dollars, including the copy of Windows. This is the OEM version, and you would need to order it with the parts.

As I said, you would also require new memory, a PSU, and a copy of Windows.

PS, The Celeron 356 in that machine is a "Cedar Mill" chip. These were the best single core Celerons (Pentium 4 type architecture) produced. (Until chips based in the new "Core 2 Duo" technology became available). They are however, less than pitiful by contemporary standards. Again, sorry if I ruined your day.

A:Replacement Motherboard for emachine TS2385

because emachines is an OEM build, there is no guarantee that standard parts will fit or work properly. you can always try, though. there are still plenty of socket 478 boards out there that will aork with your processor. i recommend one of the asus p4p800 series motherboards, you'll probably have to use a micro ATX board to fit your case.

My son has an emachines T4697. The power supply destroyed his motherboard. We replaced the power supply but now have to replace the motherboard. The problem is, he is a musician and has his music stored on the hard drive. He has not backed up for a long time so much of his music would be lost.

We need to replace the motherboard but not reformat the hard drive. The old motherboard is an FIC VG33 that uses intel 845GE chipset.

Emachines and Tiger Direct sell the replacement but it comes with a new power supply included and they want over $300.

Can I replace it with another motherboard as long as it uses the same chipset? Will we be able to reload windows using the disks that came with the emachines or will we have to buy a copy of XP?

A:Emachine T4697 motherboard replacement

The motherboard just failed... it was not destroyed by the power supply, but likely the other way round... the failed motherboard created a condition that destroyed the power supply.

The problem you will have is that although the hard drive is good, Windows will detect the change in hardware and will not load.
The 845GE is a good board, but the EEPROM is not tattooed to allow the eMachines recovery disc to work.

The best thing to do is get a decent WXPP system, then use the current eMachines drive as a slave to rescue the data.
If you wish to know more, I can send more details.
Otherwise, if eMachines still has the motherboard, that replacement will cost you $159.95 and will enable all to be restored. A decent power supply will cost significantly less. Measure your current failed power supply in millimeters, then find a new one the same size. Antec makes one that fits, as does Sparkle... both are excellent. There many be many others.
There are other ways to save a few dollars.

Any motherboard you get will be compatible because you might have to start fresh using only the computer's case. You will have to obtain a copy of XP or Vista because any eMachines discs will be useless. You will need to replace the power supply... If by chance, you find a board that will take your old processor and memory you will save some money there

2: is the existing board failing? If you replace it with a different make, type or model your restore CD will not work properly.
3: more rpm means faster drive access = better performance. 10000 rpm is about 30% faster than a 7200 rpm.

A:Emachine T3092 Mother Board Replacement

You will most likely end up replacing everything except the case. Any ATX or mini-ATX board should fit. How many PCI slots do you have now? 3? The power supply should be changed while your at it... Just deside what processor and memory you want to use, and select a motherboard that will run it.

Will I need to upgrade my power supply...and I did by one of those....but....its large and mounts differantly (wont fit inside)...can I hook it up as an external power supply with no problems?

A:T2240 emachine video card replacement

Sounds like you dont have either a AGP slot or a PCI-E slot which means your stuck with a PCI card. and there are not a wide range of cards to choose from in PCI. Hooking up a PSU externally is both dangerous and impractical.

A:Unknowing victim of emachine, board replacement, socket 754/478

Dude, get a grip. I know less about computers now than before I read your post.

I thought that socket 478 was Intel (Pentium Celeron), now I come to find out that it's AMD.

An AMD Sempron 3000 only comes in one speed, if it's another speed, then it has a different number.

All of the s*** you mention is beyond obsolete, so maybe it's time for a whole 'nuther computer. Please, I heartily suggest that you avoid attempting to build a machine, at least in your current state of mind.

I don't think that any of us here are really equipped to deal with the anxiety, angst, or incoherent and rambling thought patterns you have exhibited thus far, let alone what you're trying to pass off as sentence structure.

BTW, my Emachines T-5026 just reached its 5th birthday. If you'd like to check in and wish it many happy returns, (pun not intended), here's the link;

I would argue that it is not really possible to be an "unknowing victim" of Emachines.

You bought it because it was cheap, cheap s*** breaks. So where's the surprise, the mystery, or the unpredictability?

Thanks in advance

A:Emachine motherboard

Well, just by what info you provided, it's 'probably' a socket 478, but that's just an educated guess. To find out for sure, go here:

download, and run. Then post the detailed specs of your machine. Then we'll be able to tell you exactly what you can use, and what you can't.

When you change your motherboard, you have to make sure that both your processor AND your RAM are compatible with the board. There are numerous types, and most motherboards will support only one specific type, and no others. Just be careful that all the specs match.

A:Emachine - Bad Motherboard?

As to accessing the files, you may however if the drive in the failed system is ntfs, win9x does not "see" ntfs file systems.

Emachines use some pretty low end boards and they do fail.

Since you have already installed a new pw supply, the next item to suspect would be the board.

As for whether or not to invest money in the system, I would not. With the price of basic systems so cheap today, it does not make sense to invest a lot of money into a 5yr old emachine.

My wife's T6528 desktop began shutting down after several hours operation -- the screen goes back, When powering back on, the screen shows "No Input Signal" before going black. After awhile it would be operational again. I thought it might be the power supply and replaced it but no change in its shutting down. Since it is using the MB internal video, no separate video card, I assume it must be the MB. I found a site 'CPUtopia' that advertises a new direct replacement MB including CPU and fan for a reasonable price. The reviews on this site are predominately very positive. Does anyone have first hand experience with them? They are located in Nevada. Also, any comments on steps I might have missed? By the way, the machine now doesn't come up at all but all fans are working. Thank you!

I have a friend with an eMachine and it needs a new motherboard. The one from eMachine, FIC AM37, is $140 but I can get an MSI board with the same chipset for $45. But I dont know if the restore disks will still work with a different brand board. I know some disks are keyed to a file on the hard drive and some to the motherboard.

A:Replacing a motherboard eMachine


If the motherboard will work for 45, then get it. I know some computers have problems like you said when replacing the mobo, but even if It doesn't work, you can get oem xp for $92 and the mobo for $45 and you're still less than the "correct" mobo, and then you have the "real" version of xp, not the limited manufacturer's edition. Be sure to backup BEFORE you begin anything (reinstalling windows erases everything). If your going to replace the mobo, you should consider getting a more upgradeable motherboard than what you have. I think this motherboard would work with your existing components, while upgrading to dual channel memory availability, agp8x, etc. About $50
Note that this motherboard requires an agp card to run a monitor(no built in graphics).
Basically your decision depends on your level of experience. If you want this to be easy, get the 140 mobo, if you want to try to save money get the 45 mobo, see if it works with your windows, and if it doesn't then buy and install the oem full version. Or you can buy the mobo I suggested and have some better features than your original motherboard to ease future upgradeability. This would be the same procedure as the 45 mobo. You try it, if it doesn't work buy oem xp and install it.

I bought a emachine two years ago. Mother board fried. Luckily it was under guarantee and was replaced free of charge. Here we are two years later and all of a sudden i keep gettin a message(shut down due to cpu overheating). I bring the computer back to future shop where i bought it. They tell me once again mother board is finished. Guess what? guarantee is finished. So there goes at least a thousand bucks. My arguement is that they had changed this part already once. Shouldn't the guarantee be from the day they changed my mother board? for all i know, they could of replaced this with a used part or faulty part. Now i'm getting told by friends to just scrap the emachine and buy something new and better. Any advice out there on this problem?

The most expensive Emachine on the planet can be had for about 700 bucks, why would you even consider spending a thousand to fix one.

Any help on replacing my motherboard & psu would be greatly appreciated. I read a few threads on here about checking out but, I don't know what to get. Here's the specifications on my computer.....please help!

CPU: Intel Celeron Processor 1.80GHz (w/128KB L2 cache & 400 MHz FSB)

Any suggestions on the kind of motherboard I need? Thank you so much ahead TechSpot Members!!!!!

A:I need a motherboard & PSU for a t1840 eMachine


Are you sure you need both a MB and PSU? I had a PSU go on my eMachine T3985. Bought a PSU tester and found it was bad.
PSU Tester from
COOLMAX PS-224 LCD Power Supply Tester $24

Next I bought the following PSU. It also fits in your Micro ATX case:
FSP Group (Fortron Source) ATX350-PA, 350W Power Supply $30

Once I installed the PSU, everything started working perfectly. If you do need a new MB, you also have to buy a new Operating System (Win XP). Your emachine OS will not work with a new MB.

I purchased an EMachine D6419 as a bundle package from Office Depot approxiamtely 18 months ago, the motherboard went on the machine. The machine will start up to the point of that the fan is working but nothing appears on the monitor. Also the computer will not power down when you try to turn it off, you have to pull the power cord from the rear of the machine. I know from searching EMachine website that the part no. is MBEM105551MS. I am looking for a compartable motherboard or one for less money ($160.00) that EMachine will charge. Any ideals. Also the vendor should be reputable. Please advise. Thank you

Okay first off I m guessing that my PSU is bad on my eMachine T since PSU take it EMachine Issue: motherboard?

A:EMachine PSU Issue: Does it always take motherboard?

OH... and either way I think I have plenty of parts to salvage into something new.

The eMachine T3958 Specs:

Operates at 2.93GHz
256KB L2 cache and 533MHz FSB
Chipset: Intel® 845GV chipset
Memory: 512MB DDR 333
Expandable to 2GB
Hard Drive: 80GB 7200rpm, 2MB cache
Optical Drive: DVD±RW, 16x Multi-Format double layer

AND it came with an added DLink wireless ethernet card, so THAT is cool, too.

Before you replace any mobo, replace the PSU. For all that, you might as well get a quality computer and salvage your hard drives. Of course you'll need to reformat them.

Does anyone know the wiring positions for the three sets of wires coming from the front cover of the tower to the motherboard. They are marked as Power Led , Power sw and I believe an HDD led. At the lower right corner are two sets of prongs, the set closes to the corner are for the usb in the front cover. When I removed from the board I thought the three were all in one plug, but they were seperate. The area of the pins are five sets of pins, with the last only has one pin on the bottom of the set. ::::.

Hi All

I hoping someone can help me, I have a 2.6ghz celeron emachine, but it won't powerup.

everytime you press the power switch the cpu fan spins for 1 second and then stops there is no beeping from the machine and no reaction on my monitor.

I have remove all the ide cables and memory but still no joy.
the machine has a p4I65g prescot 800 ASRock motherboard, could the onboard battery be the problem?

Hope you can help me


A:emachine Askock motherboard power up?

Hi Zapster,

If you were refering to the CMOS battery when you wrote "onboard battery". I don't believe that is the problem. If the CMOS was bad your BIOS settings would not be saved, but it should still boot. Even though the fan spins, you may have a power supply problem. I would make sure all the connections in the computer are secure, make sure the memory is seated correctly and in the correct slots, then try booting again. If you are not able to boot then I would try another power supply or systemboard. I hope this helps.

There should be a setting in the bios to change that. To get to the bios, hit f2, del, or some other key(should say in the manual) while the computer is booting. Under one of the categories you should see a setting about the onboard video. It may have options like onboard or auto, or onboard, auto, or pci. Auto should make it detect and use the new pci card.

I checked all the volume controls to make sure volume was high enough and not muted. Also, checked the DirectX with the dxdiag cmd, with no problems, 2 set of speakers, and reinstalled the audio driver . Then I went to Realtek and updated the AC' 97 audio driver...Tried 2 different CD's. I reinstalled the chipset drivers too.

I am told the Processor fitted is "Socket Type", and the Power Supply that goes on the motherboard has "10 pins".
Could anyone help identify the type of MotherBoard, which replacement type should I be looking for, and if anyone can point me in the direction of a source of supply for this,

A:Motherboard replacement help !

It is a faster configuration compared to your current Pentium 4 PC and the graphics support is light years ahead compared to your old Intel 845 graphics controller. You can use the stock heatsink/cooler that comes with the APU which is sufficient. But one thing you should keep in mind that the configuration is pretty basic and wont perform great on demanding applications and can be used best for light load usage like word processing, Internet browsing etc. Since the AMD APU had good graphics hardware you can enjoy HD videos too without issues. For such a low price it is a worthy replacement if you cant go with a more capable hardware like Core i3 platform which costs close to 3 times than the Combo you said. Also add 8 GB of DDR3 RAM to make sure every thing perform maximum possible.

A:Motherboard replacement?

Most likely no. Big box systems like dell, hp, etc use proprietary parts. That is they are made to the system builders specs NOT standard atx type specs.

While a standard atx type board might "work" it may also have problems lining up with the existing case.

FWIW socket 939 is pretty old technology and IMO NOT worth putting any money into. In addition ebay is about the last place to buy parts.

The Motherboard in my Gateway is burned, according to BestBuy Geek Squad. It is the KTBC51G-LF. I would like to replace it myself and have found a replacement on-line for over $200. That seems too expensive.

My question is; do they make replacements for the original manufactored part? that would be cheaper. Or maybe used, refurbished parts? Does anyone know where I can find such parts?


A:Motherboard Replacement

You need to look at the motherboard you have and find out the manufacturer and model number. It should be silk screened on the motherboard. It is very possibly an ECS or PcChips motherboard, as Gateway and Emachines (same company) are famous for using. And see if you can find one new at New Egg or some place like that.

Taking a computer to the Geek Squad is not a recommended thing. Often they do inferior work and frequently talk people into letting them make repairs that are not necessary and sometimes do not work.

Basically any socket 775 micro Atx board will fit but will it boot? You have to see if the front jumpers (power, reset, hard drive led etc are one plug or a series of loose wires to attach because if it is one plug, you will never get it to start.

A:Which replacement motherboard?

You are not going to find any new socket A type boards any longer. If you want to stay with that cpu, then you would need to buy one used. You might find a deal on an old board from a local shop OR you can try ebay. One big problem is that boards from that era, almost all used the same bad caps. If you do find one, you may have the same problem down the road.

FWIW I would just get a modern motherboard, cpu, ram, and pw supply and be done with the issue. Note unless you buy a board with onboard video, you will need a new video card as well.

Im not sure if this is the right place to post this, so if any of you can redirect this for me id appreciate it. Recently my HP Pavilion Media Center m8000e had its motherboard died... ASUS: M2N68-LA. I do not know enough the subject, but i would like to know what i can replace this board with, since i can not find another one of the same type. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please post back.

A:Motherboard Replacement

It's a trap. You can probably use almost any Am2 motherboard but if you don't buy it from HP where it will be at least 4 times what it is worth, then you will wind up buying a new copy of Windows because your restore disks will only work with an HP supplied motherboard. So you can see what they have but most likely you will be better off using the components, buying a new case, motherboard and copy of Windows.

Where can I buy a replacement Joshua H61 motherboard and I7 cpu. The board was manufactured by Foxcomm

A:Replacement motherboard and cpu

Hi, The Joshua H61 that is supplied in HP PCs is an OEM model made to HP's specifications. You can try the HP Parts Store or Ebay for the exact motherboard. Even if you buy the exact motherboard, I would suggest that you that it to an authorized HP repair shop and have the motherboard prep'd. This is a list of the HP approved processors for the Joshua motherboard. The UEFI BIOS for the Joshua can be found here.

Hi I currently have an HP 255 G1 with an AMD E2 - 1800 APU and I know that this can't be upgraded without replacing the motherboard, so I was hoping I could get some possible motherboard replacements as I wish to upgrade to at least an i5 or the AMD equivalent.  Thanks

A:Possible motherboard replacement

Here's the Manual: Service Manual If you try to go Intel you will need to buy a motherboard, and a processor and a heatsink/fan.  If you go AMD all you need is the motherboard since your cooling fan/heatsink can be ported over, and the processor is soldered to the board.  This is the motherboard you want: System board (includes replacement thermal materials): For use only with models with an AMD A6-5200 processor ? Models with Windows 8 Standard 730670-501 ? Models with Windows 8 Professional 730670-601 I am going to assume you have Windows standard.  HP does not have the A6 AMD board in the store....they only have the A4 board and it is stupid expensive: Since you do not have one to exchange, it is going to cost close to $500. I can find you a good used Intel 250 G1 for that price.  You can find the board for $67 on eBay: I know you wanted something a bit more powerful but the A4 will be a major improvement over what you have. The seller laptopaid, is one of the best on eBay for this kind of thing. I can't count how much stuff I have purchased from them.  Post back if you need any more help. The Manual shows just how to replace the motherboard. Port your fan, memory, wireless card over. You will have to reinstall original Windows but the motherboard has a Key Code embedded in the BIOS and will just activate. If your hard drive still has the original HP install it should activate itself when first connected to the internet but be prepared if necessary to do a system restore. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi all.

I need to replace my current Asus P5ND2-SLI Motherboard which died recently. I have already spent what seems like endless money on other components recently, so need a reasonably priced replacement to get up and running again.

My CPU is a Intel 3Ghz Dual Core (D) and the RAM is DDR2 6400. Board is LGA775 socket for Intel® Pentium 4/Celeron CPU
Compatible with Intel® 6XX, 5XX and 3XX processors.

It needs to be PCI-E as well. Now, I am clueless with most PC hardware, and there seems to be a ton of options on somewhere like, so some advice would be really helpful!

Hello. I have a custom-built computer with a Gigabyte GA-KN8SC-939 motherboard with a Athlon64 3500+ processor. The motherboard had been having problems starting about a few years ago with random crashes occurring whenever devices were plugged in to now crashing and freezing up on a regular basis. I suspected it was the motherboard (no other devices were having problems, and the memory wasn't faulty), so I believe I need to replace the motherboard. However, knowing the age of this computer, I don't know if it's possible. Do you guys know of a motherboard that would have performance similar to this one and also work with a Socket 939 Athlon64 3500+ processor?

A:Need help a replacement motherboard

About the only place you will find a 939 board these days is ebay or at a computer shop that deals in used hardware. For less than $150 you can get an AM3 board Athlon II X2 and 4GB DDR3 If you want to go that route.
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz
Motherboard: ASRock M3A770DE AM3
RAM:Crucial 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

A setup such as this while not exceptionally powerful by todays standards, would run circles around that old socket 930 Athlon64 3500+ processor.

I have Windows XP and the Motherboard is described as Eveshamvale - no other model number or info given I am getting an intermittent dual tone beep and I think this is caused by the fan failing to run full Motherboard Replacement Fan speed Motherboard Fan Replacement Is this a correct assumption first of all Do the beeps appear when perhaps the temperature rises because of the slowing down on the fan blades I have undone the four screws that keep the fan blades attached to the rest of the fan housing and have oiled it sparingly Although the beep will often go away for hours at a time they do return I am not conversant with motherboards at all although I have installed DVD Drives etc How difficult is it to replace the fan with a new one and how would I go about getting one My system is getting on in age years old but I want to keep it going until next year if poss when Windows will have been out for some time Any advice would be greatly appreciated you tech guys Wen nbsp

Hello friends, love your very informative forum. I have an issue i believe you can help me with, i am setting up my old desktop computer for a family member, but its motherboard is not working. The motherboard was Gigabyte Ga-m68m-S2P and they are long out of the market. Since a DDR2 motherboard is very expensive in my country (about 110 euros) could i just buy a new motherboard and new rams and swap them? It would save me half the money but i am not sure what happens about compatibility. The cpu is an old athlon II and the gpu was an old geforce i dont remember the right model. Can you inform me about the subject and answer me if this is doable?

Hey guys, I'm gonna replace my motherboard in the near future and I was wondering if anybody knew a way of not needing to reinstall windows from scratch.

A:Motherboard Replacement

Unfortunately you will probably need to. If you replace your motherboard XP will reconize this as a new piece of hardware and you may even be required to purchase a new license. Microsoft may see this as a new computer. You will probably not even be able to boot with the current o.s. installed on the drive.

To make a long story short, I have a Gateway computer in which I found to have a bad motherboard. I have purchased a used Asus P4 motherboard/2.4 mhz CPU combo to breathe life back into her. The hard drive already has Windows XP Home installed on it and I would like to continue using everything currently installed on the hard drive, as well as the operating system already in place, as is. Realizing that Windows XP Home is going to find LOTS of new hardware installed when I finally boot this thing up, what is the best approach to this upgrade? I do have the driver disk for the board on hand. Should I simply boot it up and let it search for the drivers on the CD, or is this going to be a much more difficult upgrade? Does anyone have any suggestions outside this approach? Thanks, a bunch, in advance!

A:HP motherboard replacement

Yes HP will do paid out of warranty service but it is very expensive. Your best bet is to procure the motherboard and either do it yourself, which I understand most people do not want to do or take it to a local independent service shop. Expect the whole thing to cost perhaps $200-300. HP would charge at the top end if that range or perhaps slightly more. I do not speck for them however so you should call. They will quote you a price for motherboard replacement. If you want to try self-help post back and we can locate you a motherboard but we will also need to know the country you live in,

Hi all,
I have recently had hardware failure in my DIY PC (most likely the motherboard).
I have taken it to a repair shop to have it diagnosed and was wondering if I could get some suggestions for a new motherboard if it turns out to be that.
I use my PC for heavy gaming as well as geometric map design and need a reliable (relatively cheap) board that is capable of supporting the hardware I am currently using (9800gt asus overclocked) pentium 2 2.8ghz processor.
asus Xonar D2x Audio (pcie).
It should also be noted that my old motherboard was a socket 775. (and the new one should be the same).
Can you reccomend one without an nforce chipset as well as these seem to be useless.
Thanks for your responses

You will have to do a lot of research on that current motherboard in order to make sure you get one that is compatible.

I would call back DELL and ask them if the one they are offerening you is a refurb or is it brand new? Dell has a habit of selling refurb parts.

Also ask them for the make/model number of the motherboard and I can help you do some research if you like?
