Power Supply and motherboard maybe bad?
Posted on 2006-05-09
I have an emachine that was given to me because the original own said it was died. It would not power. I removed/unplugged RAM, AMD chip, Modem card, HD, CD-ROM, DVD player and floppy drive. I tried booting but I got nothing. I replaced the power supply with a spare. The computer powered up. I installed the hardware back on using this spare power supply. Eveything seems to power up but I get a black screen. No posting across the screen, nothing. It's an AMD MoBo #T2482. I reset/reseat all hardware again and used a graphocs card PCI instead of the on board graphics and still all I get is a black screen. I do hear one beep and everything booting up including the fans.
Maybe the motherboard must be replaced?
Any suggestions please?
