I think the problem  may be that your operating system  may have gone corrupt

try  to enter the Safe mode  (if you can )
and see if you can  revert back to old settings and whether it helps or not
else   you would have to
  reinstall the whole operating system

    Well you can certainly Install Windows Xp on  your system  .

    I am also using Xp it in not Mandatory to Upgrade to Vista
    and You can easily get windows Xp cd's to install the OS.

    You are reinstalling the Operating system

    now as  I say the reinstallation of the operating system  soles all the problems in one  go

    But just curious  and I hope you have 

    All  the drivers required  for your computer.

My Desktop E-machine EL1331G-01w turned itsself off during an update and now it will not come back on, it powers on then goes back off after a matter 2-5 seconds. What causes this?


Have someone check the cooling fan for CPU and power supply. If the unit have a blown cooling fan on the CPU it will do as you described. Will also do the same if power supply is no good. Boot into safe mode and see if it still shuts down.

Keeps powering off by it self


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

My E machine 5220 keeps shutting down leaving just the amber light on the front of the tower lit.


eMachines are known to have cheap/bad power supplies.
If you have access to an extra good working supply you can disconnect the power supply from the computer with out removing it (unpluged of course), and connect your good one as a test.
Power supplies are very inexpensive off of sites like Newegg, Pricewatch, etc.

Do this right away.
You don't want a bad power supply to burn out your motherboard, and, or, CPU and end up costing you more to replace.

Also It could be possible something is overheating too and causing the machine to shut down.
Open the side panel and make sure the CPU fan is spinning freely when the power is on.
Some times what happens too is a machine can get so full of dust, dirt, and, or pet hair that the whole CPU fan and heat-sink get blocked so air can flow through and around them.

Monitor cuts off


This could be the result of a few different things. If you haven't checked, click start, control panel, performance and maintenance, and power options. In this box, there should be numerous setting possibly pertaining to your specific problem. Also, ensure your cpu fan is running. A failed cpu fan will make your monitor turn off. Additionally you will have to make sure your power supply isn't bad. The easy fix is the first of the issues though.

In my opinion you have a faulty power supply, replacing only the fan may not solve your problem. Try replacing the power supply.

Emachine heating issues


Hi rebecca_fran,
Well the system is shutting down for a reason but before you run off & buy a new CPU fan I want you to try something.
Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open your case & ground your self by simply touching any bare metal. (The bottom of the case will do).
Please remove the memory currently in your system. If you have never done this before please check within the manual for your eMachine. (There should be a section on how to install memory).
You can also click on this uTube link, it’s a bit long but you can skip through the video.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsXNT6fnHmM&feature=related
If you have some canned air blow out the memory slots.
(Do not place your fingers on the memory contacts at any time).
Re-seat the memory, firmly but gently. Leave the case opened & plug in the power cord. Turn on the PC. See if the fan runs & the system doe’s not shut down. If it still does replace the CPU fan.

Your PC uses an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ / 2.3 GHz CPU.
Here is a replacement AMD CPU fan & assembly.
http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/std/sku=dual_core_cpu_fan.html

The CPU will come with thermal tap on its underside. (No need to buy thermal grease).
(Make sure you remove the old thermal grease from the top of the CPU). Use a clean rag with a little alcohol on it. (Not dripping). Allow time for drying. Do not scratch the CPU surface.

Good luck rebecca_fran!
Mike

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot


Buy a dianostics card, and find out if its the RAM, CPU, OR Motherboard. (sounds like a ram or CPU problem though) if you have more than one stick of ram in the system, take one out, and power it up, if still not response, to the other stick out, and put the stick you took out the first time, and put it back in.
