I realize I can't get my computer diagnosed without someone actually taking a look at it, but I'm just trying to figure out what my odds are here. My computer will not turn on. When I press the power button, there is no power. And yes, I checked the power strip, the outlet, etc.
I have an eMachine (yeah I know, I know) and I have heard they are notorious for mother board problems, which will cause this power issue. I have also been told it could simply be the power button has fried out. I haven't been able to find someone who provides free diagnosis, so I don't really want to blindly take it into the shop without having a good idea of what I'm looking at. In other words, if it's the mother board I guess it wouldn't be worth my while since I won't be able to dump more money into it.
How much do mother boards typically run, including installaton? Is this really the most likely problem? If anyone could shed some light on this for me, I'd be most appreciative.
