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)

My battery became dead in hot climate ,how can i choose new battery suitable for my car ?


If you want some information on batteries, the Consumer Reports have done tests and the magazines are usually in the local Library. Just look up in the Periodicals under Battery Tests and the Issue should be listed.

There are some newer type "Gel" batteries that do not use water or an acid bath so it will not evaporate in heat. These cost about 3 times the normal price. There are also some acid bath batteries listed for Hot climates in the Consumer Reports article.

I like the "MAX" series sold at Walmart. You can get Warranty service anywhere in the Nation (through Walmart) and a longer Free Replacement. I believe the Consumer Reports liked the NAPA and NASCAR brands.

Batteries are sold in sizes, then by Power. Your battery will have a case number like 27F and then have Power ratings like 650, 750, 875, and so on. The bigger Power numbers can do more and have more Reserve to drain or run down before failure.

There are a lot of opinions about brands, that is why I suggested reading the Consumer Reports tests. You will find that at idle a more Powerful battery will raise the power windows quicker and the fan will run a little stronger.

MY PC HAS BOOTING PROBLEM


Hi bridey28, when you replaced the cmos battery & the bios did not maintain the correct time than the cmos is not at fault. More likely its your power supply. The cmos receives its power (Recharge) from the power supply. An average cmos battery should last for 5 years. The fact that you attempt to power up the PC & you have to wait, points to a power supply problem. Not a bios problem.
Bios corruption is rare, unless you have tried to flash the bios & it failed. Replace the power supply before attempting flashing the bios. Every manufacture warns against flashing the bios. Only flash the bios if your 100% sure that it will correct a bios malfunction. If the issue presist after replacing the power supply, Intel has instructions of (How to flash the bios) on their site.
Here are the instruction from Intel for your MB model number.
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/5519/ENG/BIOS%20Update%20Readme.pdf

You'll need this link to download the bios file;

Good luck bridey28!
