This is a common problem with Emachine motherboards, the problem is the power supply is a best tech and allows voltage surges to the motherboard which fries it too. If available you usually have to replace both the power supply and motherboard. I do not know what exactly goes bad on the motherboard but I have replaced many emachine power supplies and motherboards. The motherboard kit which used to be available from Emachines included a power supply and no warranty if you didn't change the power supply. They knew they had a problem.
If everything else was working fine (until today) and just the cd-drawer would not open, a damaged systemboard (or motherboard) is highly unlikely.
1) What does "not turn off"? The Laptop or the CD drive?
2) To check what is exactly damaged you could power down the laptop and remove the CD drive entirely. Then power on the laptop. If everything works fine only your cd drive was damaged.
Just open ur P.C cabinate and look when the Power supply is on in ur mother board then there is a green light in ur Mother board ; is it on ?? If the LED is on then I hope ur mother board is ok yet. Then I think there is some connection prob on the pushing button on the cabinate. Check it if it is not then u have to replace ur mother board.
When you buy a new motherboard, make sure and get one that accepts the same processor and memory, and video card that you have now. It is not terribly complicated to replace the motherboard but if you have never done it before be prepared to spend a few hours reinstalling your operating system and all the correct drivers for the new motherboard components. Also make sure you get a board that will fit in your computer case, not all boards are the same size.
Question are you getting any display from your monitor - if you are there is hope - if not the same thing that took out the power suply has probably fried the motherboard.
The only other thing I would sugest is to flash the BIOS - either locate JP1 or remove the battery (looks like a whatch battery) and cross the terminals with a screwdriver - re-install the battery and see how it goes.
Point: No display = no motherboard.
Good news is that the RAM, Procesor and other components are probably good.
You're not missing any step at all, because with SATA hard drive if its really working your computer should automatically detect it and since this hard drive suddenly stop working there's a possibility that its already fried but if you want you can try this hard drive again to a different computer and if still not detected by second computer its already dead.........
If you took the pc in to a repair shop and they diagnosed that as the problem. You will have to install the new vieo adapter in the computer. Then plug in the monitor to see something on the screen. You can go into the bios to disable the other. Now if you are going by hear say and an actual tech did not check your system it does not necessarily have to be the video adapter at fault. You will need to have it checked out to validate that. Now if you did install the card you will have to plug the monitor in the new adapter. If the problem is still there you have another issue with the pc. Please comment on what the case may be. I would be able to better help you.
