When you look at the mother board the little can looking things on it should be flat on top. Do you see any that are bulged or leaking fluid top or bottom of can (Capacitor)
If none of the Capacitors are bulged or leaking you can try re seating the processor. This is accomplished in different ways depending on how the heat sync is mounted etc. You will usually be able to see some screws on the heat sync or a clip of some type. Be careful because when inside of a computer static electricity is deadly to the pc. Touch the metal casing as as often as possible. to discharge the static electricity.(ground strap and static surface are reccommended)

1.) Re seat Processor and make sure ram is seated properly. Make sure you lift the release lift the processor up and then reclip the release for the proccesor.

Could be a bad video card, easiest way to test is check the monitor with another computer, if nothing comes up on the screen again you know it is the monitor.. If something comes up you know it is the computers video card.

sounds like an issue with your motherboard or something like that...try resetting the motherboard by unplugging the power, taking out the battery of the motherboard inside the computer and pressing the power button several times to drain the power. then put the battery back in, plug in the power cord and try to start it up. if it doesnt work then ur gonna have to contact emachines because ur mobo is either defective or broken...

E-machine 5220 power up

Emachines have notoriously cheap power supplies. Often, while the power supply itself doesn't fail, it causes the failure of motherboard components, essentially trashing the computer.

Try the following:

First check and make absolutely certain that the power switch connector is properly connected to the motherboard. (Take standard grounding/safety precautions: wear a properly-grounded grounding strap, for example, when working with any internal components.)

Obtain a known-good power supply of equal or greater capacity to your eMachines PS and switch 'em out. 

If either of these fixes your problem, well and good. If not, the problem may be, as is all too common with eMachines power issues, a motherboard issue caused by the power supply.
