I haven't been able to reboot my emachines W3503. I keep getting flashing screens that say the monitor is sleeping, a screen of the emachines logo with Bios settings and Boot menu F2 and F10, and a screen that apologizes for the inconvenience and offers options like reboot in safe mode, safe mode with networking, and so on. All options I've tried have resulted in the previous screens.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Sorry, but it appears that the EMachines model W3503 does not have a floppy disk drive installed. See this link: http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/emachines-w3503/1707-3118_7-32178774.html
Floppy disks are obsolete at this point. If you have data on a floppy disk that you wish to retrieve, see about getting help from someone you know who might have one on their computer system, or visit a public library (you might be able to offload the floppy disk contents and e-mail them to yourself).
Most people use USB flash drives now. They are far more reliable and have enormous capacity. Definitely get one if you don't have it. The W3503 computer has several USB ports on it.
disconnect all the cables except the power cable and then turn the monitor on you would see a test screen if it still happens your monitor is faulty and better buy a new one as repairing is usually expensive .
I stoped the monitor from sleeping by going into the montitor's menu, management, then sleep. Turn on the never allow to sleep mode. We were having some of your mentioned issues with the icons and with the monitor not waking up. This fixed that. Now the computer will go to sleep and when started the monitor comes on instantly.
The amber power light indicates that your computer has been "sleeping" or "hibernating" and usually all it takes to restart the computer is tapping a key on the keyboard. If this is not the case, try holding the Power switch down for 6-10 seconds to force the system off. Restart in Safe Mode and try to find the settings for Sleep/hibernate, open the control panel and open the Screen Saver. Select "Change Power Settings" and set it for "Never" on sleep and hybernate.
You can google search for an app called NOSLEEP.EXE
It was written by a Symantec employee to keep your screen active regardless of pic settings.
Install and run it. That will verify the issue is with of or monitor
Software is free
if it is the button. you would have to open the monitor and fix it that way, and i dont suggest doing that yourself, unless you are familiar with electronic components. take it to a repair shop. call around and get an idea of who would do the best job for the best price.
