Try pulling the CMOS battery for a minute, then put it back in. If that dont work, then remove ram, clean with ruber and blow slots clean. try that, before you work with the cpu. If that fixes it, then remove all fans, and replace or clean.

Re: emachines e3415 problem
I would guess that the CPU overheated if the fans are noisy. I would remove the CPU heatsink clean and reinstall the CPU with the proper contact paste,reinstall the Heatsink along with a new heat sink fan, if that is the one is making noise also. Then see if it will then boot up. If not I am guessing that the CPU was damaged for the fans not workingwell enough.

It sounds like one of three things. Two are pretty unlikely.1. RAM has gone bad. Really unlikely. Usually if this happens the computer will not boot but beep at you.2. Video Card has gone bad. Also unlikely. Usually the computer will sound like normal except you won't have any video. 3. Motherboard has gone bad. Most likely. The Motherboard has either suffered a voltage shock or has blown a component. The only real way to get this repaired to by going through Gateway / Emachines.
This sounds like either a power supply issue or a CPU fan issue to me. You say you hear a fan spinning loudly. Try and determine which fan it is. Take the left side panel off your case and start your game. When the fan gets loud identify which one it is. It's possible that the heatsink on your CPU is clogged up (pet dander, dust, smoke, etc.) and needs to be blown out. Get a can of compressed air and try blowing out the inside of your PC. It's possible your CPU/video card/power supply is just getting too hot.
Your problem is the motherboard, it has blown. See my emachine support pages at:

Well there is no fan on the actual Harddive Fans, Unless you mean the PC Case fans, in which dust built up on it wouldn't make a loud whirring noise. If it is, it's because the fan's ballbearings are bad and you need to replace it. The harddrive is a Small rectangular silver or black box on the inside of the case towards the front. If the loud noises have started coming from there then the Harddrive is going bad, and you might want to back up your data immediatly.
Post any comments for further help, hope this answers your question. Feel free to leave positive feedback, and thank you for stopping by Fixya!
Bad capacitor(s) on the motherboard can cause this problem, corrupted BIOS maybe... try flashing BIOS.
Probably the CPU if your not getting any error code beeps on startup.. NO Processor for the BIOS instructions thus no Beeps !
