Question about Computers & Internet
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
