    I unplugged a T1840 eMachine - took off the access panel - added a 256MB PC2100 memory stick (leaving the original 128MB in too) - plugged it back in - hit the power button - and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING happened ! I took out the new memory - but got the same result. I pulled the power plug and let it sit a few minutes (I heard eMachines had a capacitive discharge requirement under certain power interruption conditons) - same result. I checked continuity for the power switch to the motherboard - just fine. This is a 2 year-old (very clean enviroment) machine - and I'm having trouble believing the only thing left in my head - that the power supply has failed - I just hate coincidence with computers ! Is there something(s) else I'm not considering here ? Help !!! Thanks. Bob.

    If the fan for the power supply doesn't start the the PS is most likely dead. As for being a 2 year old machine. You get what you pay for, e-machines is crap. I have the same model sitting 5 feet away that the harddrive died in.

    Sorry.
