I had the same problem. The processor is overheating during start up. At first, it would quit while I was watching a DVD, but it got worse until it wouldn't even boot. I thought it was software but I stuck in a fresh hard disk and tried to install the recovery CD's, but it would do the same thing. I disassembled the laptop, blew out the cooling fins, and applied new heat-sink grease to the processor. That got it to boot on the old HDD, but while I was transferring files it would do the same thing. I finally removed the bottom cover and set it upright in the deep freezer. It worked long enough that I could recover my files. I ended up replacing the processor and RAM, used the recovery CD, and installed the XP-SP3 package. I kind-of eased into using it and it worked great until I tried to install HP printer software. After I did, I noticed a system slow-down and that the cooling fan would kick on more often at idle. I uninstalled the printer and now it works fine for surfing, photos, etc. I just print through a networked printer and don't install anything I don't need.

When i push the power button on my emachine the e screen flashes and it wont turn on what do i do to fix this?

If you just did a memory upgrade then the new chip is either not seated properly or the wrong type or even bad. Since it won't boot the problem is the ram in memory slot one. You need to rock it a bit to make sure it is seated before snapping it in. If it is the wrong speed or type you need to exchange it. It can also be bad but that usually means a counterfeit these days or you gave it a static shock and burned it out..

If you put your old ram back in you should be able to work again until you get the ram replaced.

Hi Welcome to FixYa!
You could follow the steps on the manual for your E-Machine for you to be able to restore your computer back to defaults. But just to remind you, it will delete everything on the computer and restore it back to factory defaults.
The manual can be found on this link:
refer to page 63 for the instructions on the recovery process.

Hope this could help you a lot!

Emachines m5309 won't boot

If you have a Install Cd for your version of windows, run it and select repair. If you are running vista, press F8 when the computer is booting and select System Restore (first one on list). If all else fails, re-install windows. You may or may not loose data based on the severity of the error.
good luck
