I have an emachines W2888, about 4 ½ years old. One day it shut off on it’s own, and I haven’t been able to get it back on since. I checked the power connection, the cord, replaced the power supply and the cpu fan, but it still will not go on. Neither of the fans go on and it doesn’t sound like there is power to the hard drive. When the power cord is plugged in, I do, however, see a very tiny green-colored LED light lit on the top of the motherboard, so there is obviously some sort of power getting through. What should I try next?

The main problem these days are that people are putting windows 7 on desktops and laptops that are 4 to 6 years old. They don't have the video card that is capable nor fast enough to care that OS. So go back to the system it came with and the problem will go away, or buy a newer computer.
Try to disconnect the cables connected to the mother board from your power supply then put it back in, then remove the CMOS battery and put it back in then try to turn the computer on..If it's still the same this means you need to purchase a new power supply.
If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.
THE LITTLE LIGHT ON THE MOTHERBOARD SHOULD ALWAY BE ON. THE FAN ON THE POWER SUPPLY RUNNING NORMAL OR FAST.
DID YOU ADD ANY NEW DEVICES TO YOUR COMPUTER LIKE UPGRADING THE RAM, VIDEO CARD, NEW INPUT DEVICE.
Most likely the system board has failed. If the power supply had blown it is not unusual for the subsequent spike to blow the system board. On the other hand it may have been the system board that failed and the PSU is ok. Emachine system boards are rubbish
Either way you will need a new board and most likely a reinstall of the OS
