E-Machine T6216 PSU fan runs, computer will not boot

When I press the power button, the fan runs super-fast constantly, nothing on monitor (as if no connection, tried different monitors), CD-ROM and HDD lights stay on steady. [here's a little history] A few months ago, machine would have same problem randomly while in use. It seemed that if you let it sit for 10-15 minutes, everything would be back to normal and problem wouldn't occur for days or weeks. Problem got more severe, thought it was a temperature or temperature sensor problem. Opened case and blew out dust and reseated processor and RAM, problem disappeared for about 6 months. Mother-in-law blew circuit breaker with space heater, blow dryer, TV and other random things, that's when the computer starting to refuse to start with fan running high.

Giving the fact that your fan is constantly running and you had an electrical spike you should take it in to be looked at. If it overheats then the motherboard will go and it will cost more to fix it than to buy a new one.

It is the power supply. EMachines have a long history of using cheap power supplies. I have replaced over a dozen EMachine power supplies with a 100% success rate. They are easy to replace and can be had for less than $20. Just write down the model number and take that to a computer parts store or remove the power supply and take that with you. Steve

Computer monitor don't work at all.


So basically your monitor's power supply system died.
Nothing much a non-technician could do about it.
Get it repaired, if under warranty, get a replacement before the coverage duration expires.

Nothing will display on the monitor. Power button


More likely to be bad capacitors (bulging top/seal) in the power supply, that will be the first palce to start, post back what you see inside so we can guide you further (it can also be bad inverter circuits, main power supply, etc), see example of failed Samsung monitors due to bad caps: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Pc wont boot


Have you recently experienced a power surge or had an electrical (thunder) storm in your area? Potentially your motherboard and/or processor could be toast since the fan running and CD Rom drive opening will continue to function because they receive power separately from the motherboard via the power supply. If you have access to a different compatible processor, you could try to install it in the motherboard to rule out a motherboard failure, otherwise you're looking for a new motherboard.
