More than likely, your power supply has gone out. Especially since it is an eMachines Desktop, they are notorious for their power supplies. A new power supply costs between $30 and $80. To replace it you usually just have to remove the 4 screws on the back that hold it in place, and unplug all of the components that it is connected to (make note of these as you will need to connect the new one to each of these components again). Plug the new power supply connections into all of the same components as the old one (don't worry if you have leftover plugs, its for expansion purposes), slide the main housing back into place and secure it with the 4 screws you removed before.

05 pt cruiser wont start after battery was replaced

That is because when you changed the battery, you upset the anti-theft alarm and immobilizer.

Disconnect the battery for at least 2 hours. Hold the battery leads together for 5 minutes to fully dissipate the power in the ECM and BCM computers. Connect the negative lead. PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION, but not turned on. Connect the positive lead in one swift movement. Wait 15 minutes for the ECM to pair the chip in the key, to the chip in the ignition switch. Start the vehicle.

number one tip, when you change a battery, maintain power to the vehicle using jump leads or a couple of lengths of wire.

Hi. If the PC wont switch on, try this simple trick - remove the power cord from the pc. Press and hold the power button on the pc unit for 20 seconds (this will totally discharge the power supply). Try reconnecting the power lead and switching on. If this works - happy days, if not then it could be either a bad Power supply or even a dead Motherboard.

1988 honda shadow vt1100, wont start, put new battery, new starter solenoid, new brushes in starter, solenoid clicks when I go to start it but nothing happens, fuses are fine. What is happening?

Hi, sounds like you are getting insuficiant power getting to the starter, assuming you have checked the engine turns over freely and is not seized, the switch circuit you have proved is working (as the clicking noise at the solenoide indicates this) as the solenoide switches the battery power to the starter motor, i ask myself if either the battery is suffiantly charged, or the leads from the battery to the solenoide/starter motor and earth leads are making good contact,
At the solenoide join together the both leads bypassing the solenoide using a pair of insulated pliers and the engine should turn over if the battery contains 12-14 volts, this can be done either with the ignition switch in the on/off position when ignition is off the engine will turn but will not start

My car wont start. It makes no noise at all, no clicking or anything! All the lights come on though. My husband tried the relay fuses and it didn't help.

If fuses and relays are all ok, then you might have a bad starter. You can test your starter on your own, but you have to locate the power terminals to the starter and apply voltage to them directly via jumper cables. if you put the red lead to the Pos terminal of your battery, and then place the other end of the cable across the power lead to the starter and nothing happens, then your starter needs to be replaced. If you are not comfortable trying this, then don't. Remove the starter and take it to advance auto and have them test it. If it works there, then you are not getting power to the relay, or you are not getting the relay to close in when you turn the key. I've pulled the cover off the relay, turn the switch to "on" and manually shoved the relay over to start cars before. When I had to do it that way, I found out by further troubleshooting, that the transmission Neutral switch had failed. If you have an automatic transmission, there is a little box attached to the mechanical linkage that has wires coming out of it. This is the switch. If the switch does not see that the vehicle is in neutral, then the start circuit will not complete.

Your wiring to the remote start system is not correctly installed or your starter wouldn't ever try to work with the engine running. disable the system by pulling the fuses to it, or removing the power line-damage can occur with a starter trying to start while the car is running.

The wiring needs to be investigated, someone has connected the wrong wire, to the wrong thing or left out a relay that would protect your car.

Also, it sounds as if the auto programming, for the remote start is turned on to a preset time, causing the engine to continue running. Read the owners manual and turn it off.

If you didn't get the system installed and don't have the manual-scrap this system and have one properly installed. It's not worth the potential danger to your car. What else was left off? Was it securely and safely wired? Not worth the risk.

Good Luck. (I love remote start systems, but I solder every wire, test using nothing but digital voltmeters and led test probes to prevent damage to the cars electrical system-hire a pro.)

Sounds to me the like soft on/off power switching in power supply itself is not working. Try another supply or if u have a tester try that. Wont be the motherboard or nothing at all would be happening.
Hope this helps

The Cause of Problem:

The Power Buttons electrical circle sometimes just braked it by one of sensors and the result is the 2 beeps and Power Supply is in protected mode error.

The whole computer is turn off but the power button is turn on and this is the nub of the matter. Because if you want turn on the computer you can't because already turn on but just the Power button and you can't do anything.

The solution:
You need just change the Power Supply and don't do anything just the power cable put into the Power Supply after turn off computer.
Finaly change back the Power Supply.
