It sounds like it may be the actual power supply inside the case. Especially if It happened after a power outage/surge. If you are familiar with the inside of your case you can purchase another power supply and just replace the damaged one. If you aren't comfortable doing that I would suggest contacting a repair shop in your area.

If you need assistance in locating a shop, you can consult your yellow pages or I can help your locate one if I have your zip code.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

How do you use wifi on an e-machines etower 500is?

I suggest use a Wireless USB Adapter, and make sure you have a wireless router.
(Also if the internet provider did not give you a separate Modem; make sure the wireless router you have has a Modem built-in)

Scroll down, read, watch video, read reviews.
(Not all 555 of course, lol!)

I forgot my login info

You will need to restart your computer in safe mode (when you restart your computer, you will have push something like "F10" or "F2" to get to boot options to choose safe mode), go to "user accounts" in your control panels and simply make yourself a new account!
