Question about E-Machines eMachines W2686 PC Desktop
Okay here goes i try and bootup computer , all tht happens is sd/multimedia light stays on but nothing in it and computer like starts to come on ucan hear it but the monitor just stays off and its not on and fan on computer is on then harddrive goes off .
Emachines have had a lot of problems with their power supplies going bad and destroying the motherboard in the process. If you can, start looking for a replacement motherboard (on eBay) and a larger wattage power supply (any local computer store) especially if you have experienced the computer shutting off or rebooting for no apparent reason. If you're lucky, you can try booting into safe mode by pressing the "F8" key on you keyboard during the boot process and select safe mode from the menu. If your computer boots up, then there exist the possibility of a corrupt video driver and/or corrupted file system. If you still can't boot and experience the same thing, then you may have a physical hdd problem or again, power supply, motherboard, or both. Also, do not over look the possibility of an internal fan on the video chip not turning. I hope this helps and good luck.
