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.

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.

Emachines t5212 overheat message then shuts down


Three causes of ovheating:
1) Dust. Dust inside the computer, Dust around the vents, fans, cpu and heat sink. Take a can of compressed air and clean the dust out of the computer.

2) A Fan not working. Make sure the fan inside the Power Supply where you plug the power cord in works. Also there is a fan that sits on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. Make sure it works. Normally the system will give you an error message if the fan is not working.

3) Thermal Paste - The Thermal Paste around the cpu and heat sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink.

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.

I have a EMachine T6534 which won't start. I shut


I agree...sounds like a power supply problem. Typically a bad power supply will not damage the motherboard. It should still be functional.

Come on, boots up, then shuts down 5 - 10 minutes later.


check your power options make sure you don't have hibernation enabled, its in the system control panel. try booting from a linux live cd like Ubuntu which you can download for free. If it runs fine under linux, its a windows problem, if it keeps shutting down its a hardware problem. Could be bad ram, or CPU overheating.

The CPU fan is working?
The power button is working?
Did you connect the cables right?

No start up , button lites up - cd-rom wont open , noticed no fans on for 3d card or big one on mother board


If the cpu/heatsink fan isn't turning then most pc's will shut down to avoid further damage to cpu & board. I would first replace the fan if it's the one over your cpu. Try replacing power supply. If your board has the 4 pin plug, you must have that plugged in. But keep in mind if that fan isn't running a new power supply isn't going to make it start working. You have to have that fan working. Then go from there. If once it is working & other devices like video and/or roms aren't, check your memory. The best way to troubleshoot devices are to plug one at a time in and power up until the problem starts. Hopefully you won't have to go to that step.

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.
