    I have emachine m5105. when plugged in the light indicating external power comes on and when i put battery in the battery light comes on and will charge but when i press power button the machine won't start and the power light will not come on. I removed the keyboard and noticed that the cpu was heating up and so was the video chip and every now and then the cooling fan would run to cool the processor. It would seem that the processor and video chip are getting power but the rest of the motherboard is not. could be something like the aldl or maxim chip on ibm's that get voltage signal to sd pin and start motherboard and processor? anybody know which chip(s) it is on the m5105 and what they are labeled or numbered? any help would be greatly appreciated.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Lenovo ThinkPad X61 got "thermal sensing error" when it boot up


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith 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 surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

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.

Cannot shut off & no display


The eMachines M5105 is notorious for failing to boot if left unplugged and powered off long enough for the battery to become mostly discharged. Plugging it in to AC power will cause the battery to start charging; and the hard disk drive to spin while the CPU cooling fan cycles on and off vigorously. THE UNIT WILL NOT BOOT UNTIL THE BATTERY IS NEAR FULLY CHARGED; then THE AC DISCONNECTED; and then THE (charged) BATTERY REMOVED AND RE-INSTALLED! Most units will boot after following the foregoing procedure.
