    My problem sounds like yours. However, I plug my machine into a surge

    protector and sometimes by alternately trying the switch on the surge

    protector and the switch on the front, I can get it started. Once I get it to

    run, I don't turn it off. I know that doesn't sound like good technical

    advice, and I have no idea what causes the strange condition, but I think

    if you keep playing with it, you can get it to start.

    How long have you had the computer? Is it still under warranty? I would call Gateway and see if maybe they could help.

As a pro computer repair tech I would think or look at two places the first is the power supply which it probally is if it's under warranty contact the manufacter if not there very easy to replace and you can buy one at or many other online places or ebay but buy new.the power supply doesn't have to be a emachine or HP just the same wattage or higher;unplug the powerthen just open the case you'll see the powersupply box unplug all the cables that attach to the box if you have a digital camera take a couple of good(easy to see) pics first so you can look back when replaeing the cables,or with the new power supply set it next to the old one and as you remove a cable replace the cable with one from the new one at a time then after replacing all the cables undo the 3-4 screws holding the power supply from the back of the case remove the old one and replace with the new one.the other thing I would check is the swicth on the front behind the front cover mostly doesn't break but it has happened.

IF it's a serial mouse (meaning green round connector) it's probably not plugged in correctly. Now these are not plug and play so you need to reboot your system in order for it to work. Try that.

Make sure you don't have two video cards on your machine and have plugged into the wrong one.
Failing that, open the case and make sure the card is plugged firmly in its slot (do this with the power off).

GE washer model WBSE3120B2WW has electronic control assembly replaced. Unit will not start, all lights on panel are green and blinking.

I have a very simular problem. It started by running a cycle without me even being in the room. The only way I could stop it from filling and running through a cycle was to unplug it. I left it unplugged for about week & 1/2 - 2 weeks and when I plugged it back in, it worked just fine. It has started running by itself again but now I push the start button and nothing happens. Any solutions?
