Check CMOS is finding hard drive at POST (power on self test) if present then is the boot sequence set correctly. Is cpu fan running, is hdd and cd/dvd devices running? Is there a display on screen, if yes what does it say ?

Check ribbon cable to hdd from motherboard is good, replace with a known good one and try booting again. Come back with results, for more support.

T5020 emachine seems to have dead power supply- how can I confirm?


If the PSU fans only work for a short time usually this means that the PSU is shot

If you suspect your power supply has gone bad, there are a few basic things you can do to test it. First, plug the computer in and try to start up the computer. If the computer can start up or shows signs of having power (the hard drives spin up, or the fans turn on) the power supply might be fine, and you may have an issue with your motherboard or RAM. If the computer won't start at all, open the case and then turn the power supply on and attempt to start the computer. Observe the motherboard to see if any lights turn. If no lights turn on and there is no sign that power is being supplied to any of your devices, there's a decent chance that the power supply has burned out. If your computer experiences periodic crashing, feel the case near the power supply to see if it is hotter than normal, and smell the air. If the case is much hotter than normal or you smell burning, your power supply might be overheating, and may be damaged. http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/f/powersupplytest.htm hope this helps

Hi,
The problem is due loose memory sticks or mismatched memory sticks.
You need to open the computer tower and reseat the memory modules on the machine to fix the issue.

Sometime a sound come from my computer?


If the sound is happening right at power on, then it's coming from the motherboard's POST testing. Considering it stops, the most likely cause is a fan that is starting slower than normal (wearing out), and is falling below the speed threshold set in the BIOS configuration.

Casio TE-8500F won't start


On some cash machines there is a fuse that can burn out. Normally this fuse is located underneath where the cord go in.

Most cash machines when nothing happens means it is dead.

First place your recovery disk in the cd drive. Then hold down the power on/off button for 15 seconds. The machine will power down. Then restart normally and reinstall from the disk.
