    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

    If the chassis accepts a standard ATX or mini-ATX motherboard, there are lots of choices. OTOH, if it's a proprietary design, then you'd be better off simply buying a new chassis and MB.

    But if you choose a non e-machine replacement you will need to buy a new copy of Windows as well, the old copy will be "locked" to the old motherboard.

    OTOH, a real eMachine MB will cost more than the combined cost of Windows and the better MB. :D

    We don't have E-Machine PC's in NZ, but I would glean from postings that they are "low budget" PC's?

    We have a few similar run by major chain stores if that is the case, but the specs and componentry leave a lot to be desired.

    Therefore agreed a complete box replacement (or m/b provided its a standard box) maybe the best way to go, complete with an OEM copy of Windows.
