When the computer on/off button is pressed , the CPU fan and tower exhaust fans start running, the blue light around the power button does not light and the boot up process goes no further. Fans continue...


A) When you hold a Power On button, (Switch actually), in for a count of 10 seconds, it turns the computer off.

(There is a Power On switch, located behind the plastic Power On button. Usually, the Power On switch snaps into the housing of the plastic Power On button.

Example of a typical ATX Power On switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The Power On switch turns the Power Supply on.

Old computers had a metal rod, that when the Power On button was depressed, the button pushed against the metal rod, which in turn pressed against a power switch located inside the Power Supply.

The design after that, was a power switch located in the Front Panel. (Plastic front of the computer) A large cable, (Wire) ran from the switch to the Power Supply.

Now there is the Soft Power On feature. (PS_ON)

The Power On switch is a small Momentary Contact Switch. Pressing it closes a circuit. The Soft Power On circuit.

When a power supply is plugged into power, there is a constant 5 Volts (DC) present.
This is the 5 Volt Standby.

Closing the Soft Power On circuit, redirects the 5 Volt Standby power to a circuit within the Power Supply.
This in turn 'excites' the Power Supply, and turns the Power Supply on.

Sorry to be windy, but I wanted you to know how the Soft Power On feature works )

eMachines are a budget computer. As such they save the consumer money.
However in order to do this, the manufacturer will install low quality parts, in some areas of the computer.

One such part is the Power Supply.

1) ALL the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.
(Had you stated the Model Number I could have told you)

Enough power to spin fans, but not enough to spin fans, AND turn the Processor on.

Do you have access to another computer that is unused, but has a Known to be good, Compatible power supply?
It could be used for a test unit.

Tell me the Series, and Model Number of your eMachines, and I'll tell you what Wattage it should have, and what power cables, for the Power Supply.

(Some examples of Series, and Model Numbers, T1090, E4264, W2925, and so on. The T, E, and W are a few examples of the Series letter.
The numbers following the Series letter, is the Model Number)

If you wish I can direct you in removing the Power Supply, and installing the test unit. (And/Or a new Power Supply)

Replaced power supply, now it wont boot


The windows file system has nothing to do with the new power supply. Possibly yes however that the windows registry was damaged before you replaced the power supply due to an abrupt switching off operation which may have damaged the boot sector within your HDD. The solution is as recommended by windows. You can use the windows setup CD to get this fixed. I suggest you run a chkdsk /r at some point during the repair when you get the command prompt C>. Check the following for further info.

Power supply sounds fine. If the pc won't power up it could be your motherboard. If the pc is powering up and you get a 'no signal' on your monitor it could be your gpu.

Computer won't come on


I had the same problem, I unplugged my computer to move it before it had fully powered down. It wouldn’t start and all I got was the flashing lights.

I asked a friend who suggested I remove the power to the motherboard then reinsert it while it’s hot. Here’s what I did. Unplug the computer. Touch something metal so you’re grounded and don’t create a static shock on the motherboard. Now GENTLY pull the 16pin wire harness off the motherboard. Now plug the computer power cord back in. Then GENTLY plug the motherboard back in. With any luck the fan will start up and the computer will begin booting up. It seems to be some type of problem where the power supply doesn’t recognize the motherboard so it doesn’t do anything until it “sees it”? Probably some type of a safety to prevent motherboard burnout?

4600C no power, flashing amber light


FLASHING AMBER LIGHT FIX. This maybe in fact a motherboard issue, but actually its a bit more. You can and should replace the power supply with a more powerfull one as it will help overall, but the issue is Really the front USB ports and 2 issues concerning them, 1 some devices pluged into them have boot sequences of their own, (remember your boot seq goesfrom,USB,CD,ARRAY)etc.
So if the device isnt design with its own OS, the mis-boot will get stuck Hence the Flashing light. and 2. the front USB ports dont supply alot of power upon bootup. and the devices pluged into them will again cause a mis-boot. Simply unplug everything from the FRONT usb ports. You may have to shut the computer off and unplug the machine for about *15* minutes.
Enough to get the motherboard to downpower completely.
with the front usb ports clear, and the power cord unpluged, hold down the power button and plug in the machine. should boot no problem. So to sum things up. The motherboard is fine, it just not happy with so many usb ports (power wise). A larger power supply is a good idea but wont entirly fix the issue, Unplug front usb devices as they may have some form of bootup.
