Hi Computer Master.....My computer froze, so I unplugged the cord from the back of the CPU, and plugged it back in. I went to press the button in the front of the CPU to turn it back on and nothing happens. I took the cover off, and when plugged in, I see a little green light inside that comes on, so it must not be the power cord. Do you have any ideas? Thanks Jim

Re: E Machine CPU
I have seen systems where when they get an unexpected shutdown such as a power failure, then the power supply will not supply full power when you try and start back up. I would suggest that you turn off the power switch to the power supply (if you have one), what a few seconds and power it back on.

It's possible that your computer froze during sleep. First, unplug the power cord, (with the cord removed) press the power button for 10-20 seconds. PS: You will lose any unsaved data prior to sleep mode. Let me know if this doesn't resolve your problem, might be something major.
You need to plug in your CPU fan. The CPU fan is VERY important in that it constantly cools your processor, making sure your computer doesn't over heat. If the computer runs and the fan isn't running, the CPU will over heat and cost you hundreds of dollars.
Turn off the power
Unplug your computer
Open up the case of your computer
Find your CPU fan
Find the cord coming from it
Find the plug on your motherboard labeled CPU fan
Plug it in there
Plug your computer back in
Turn it on

1. Remove all the connection at the back of your computer 2. Power cycle your computer tower by pressing the power button for 15 seconds 3.
Plug the power cord back in and monitor cable at the back of your
computer tower (if it turned on, meaning that one of the device plugged
at the back of your computer is the one's causing the problem, for you
to pin point the problem, try plugging it one-by-one and turn on the
computer each time you plug a device) 4. If it keeps on doing that,
open up your computer tower (be careful to unplug the power cord and
power cycle it to avoid static electricity) 5. Reseat the video card, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring 6.
Reseat the IDE/Sata cable of your hard drive and try to make sure it's
properly plugged in, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring 7. Reseat the memory, turn on the computer and test it again if the same thing 8.
If you have 2 memory chip inserted in your computer tower memory slot,
remove the other one and turn on the computer, do the same thing to
other memory and each slot 9. Reseat the CPU and start the computer.
Refresh all the connection on your motherboard like ATX power supply, HDD and CD/DVD ROM cables, and specially the RAM. You may have to clean the RAM as shown in the image below. then hopefully your computer will return to normal. Hope this helps.
Could be power supply, unplug every thing from the board, remove all drives, cards everything but the mem. turn it on, if you get some beeps, add your Hard drive. The power supply may not have the guts it take to run all the peripherals it used to, this test will tell you if its the board or power supply.
sounds like the cpu is dead, if your fan was full of dust theres a high chance it wasnt working properly for a while which would of caused the cpu to fry from lack of proper cooling and also the dust in the vents would have prevented heat from escapeing so its highly probable that the cpu is dead try replaceing it, i cannot gaurentee that anything else internally got fried from the heat tho, i had a similar problem a week ago
Turn power off and unplug power from computer.
Unplug printers,backup drives and speakers.
Open case and unplug power supply from the board.

If nothing happens unplug power cord again.
pull out your memory sticks and plug cord back in and press power button.
Of course not much will happen.
But really something is happening to your computer so continue.
Pull power cord and replace memory sticks.
replace power cord and press power switch.
Continue this pulling out pci cards one at a time until you find out what the problem might be.
Try different keyboards and mice too.
