    if it is USB, you should have 2 ports in the front and 4 at teh back of the machine. the white USB is what???

    picture would help to see what it is and where it should go.

    I guest, it should be at the back of the machine.

Hi wah4pay,

this white USB plug has nothing to do with the eMachine not starting up. My guess about the white USB is it might be for your printer (If you have one). USB cable supplies 5volts DC only which it not enough to power a desktop or laptop PC.
As far as why the PC will not start, check the back side of the tower. See if the main power cable is plugged into the power supply & it also is plugged into a working wall outlet. There is a small RED slide switch on the back of the power supply. Make sure you can see the numbers & letter, 115v.
If the switch is set to 230v move it to 115v. Try starting the PC.
See this mini video of the T3646, you'll notice there are two USB ports on the back side of the PC & two more on the front of the case:

If this is a new PC, it most likely came with a one year warranty. You should call eMachine for free support. Your documentation will provide a phone number for support.
If your eMachine is not new or no longer under warranty let me know by posting here & I'll give you some other possible suggestions that may help get the system to start. Please include the year bought & month

Wont start emachine t3646


The hard drive may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. You could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a USB Hard Drive Adapter to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.

Got awhole lot of someone else stuff on partion c in recovery d


Partition C usually has the operating system. You may not want to remove much from this partition. However if you do, then the place you'd go to remove things would be in My Documents. This is the folder that data would be stored. If you are logged in as an administrator then you can navigate to C:\ , Document and Settings, and see if theres a user profile that is listed that you don't recognize. Do not remove the administrator profile, your profile or the all users profile. If the data is in the administrator profile then I would look through the My Documents folder and see what you don't want to keep and what you want to keep. I recommend that this is the only place to remove any information.

I have a eMachine model T3646 OS windows Vista my ''C'' an ''D'' drives reversed them self's how do I change them back? xxbethel


Try this.

Go to start - control panel - administrative tools - computer management - disk management - then right click on the drive letter you want to change, this will be a multi step process, due to you cannot assign a drive letter that is already in use. You will have to assign drive "D" to "Z" Then Change drive "C" to "D" then change drive "Z" to "C"

I hope this helps you out.

Emachine shut down


No, it's just the USB ports that are still being powered.
Totally normal in most new computers. Same thing with the PS2 ports.
There are jumpers on the motherboard that can change this if you really want. It's designed like that to keep things like you have powered for when you do turn it on and need them.
