When you say "switch some of them around" what exactly do you mean. I thought that the specific wires could only go in the specific spots. I found the power cable was the black one as it had "PWR" on it. But wouldn't wire have to go back into the same spot?

Here is the link to the mobo manual.

ftp://download.intel.com/support/mot...SR_English.pdf

On page 31-32 it gives the directions for hooking up the power wire. I have 1 and 3 hooked up. 2 and 4 hooked up. And then 6 and 8 should be the power. 5 and 7 and also 9 do not have anything hooked up to them and from what I can tell never did as I do not see a wire for them.

If its the actual power button thats damaged, then you could connect the reset button to it instead, it just means you would be pressing the reset button to turn the computer on. Not the best fix, but its a workaround.

I do not see a reset switch on the front of the PC. Just a power button. Here is a pic of the front of it.

If you definately shorted the correct 2 pins, and ya mobo was connected properly etc, and it never powered up at all, then it sounds like ya mobo is gone (providing you know for definate that its a working PSU aswell, test it on another machine if possible). Just another point aswell, this info is based on everything been correctly setup etc, as i cant see your pc, so i can only assume things.

I am going to work on it a little more this weekend. As far as I know everything is set up correctly as it was working for my sister in law a few days prior.

also, give new ram a try, its possable that this could have been fried as well. Look for buldging capacitors on the motherboard. These normally look like soup cans. if the top or the sides are buldging, your mother board is failing/has failed.

Very possibly blown capacitors on the motherboard as well, as that being a T2000 series model, there were all kinds of bad juju about motherboards purchased by eMachines before the Gateway buyout...."better" quality boards started to appear on eMachines PCs after that time!
