Unplug the Monitor, and attempt to reconnect a seperate monitor to test. If that monitor works properly, then the problem is your regular monitor. If you do not have another monitor, Try unplugging the power from the wall jack to the tower. Then plug into another port, the reason the computer doesn't turn on is because the power outlet may be running but at a lower voltage then what is required for the computer to run at its full potential. If theese both fail, Try opening your computer and check if anything is blown out.

the sound you are hearing or heard could have been power surging through a powersupply unit that just blew.. hopfully it did not effect any of the other hardware..to trouble shoot this you can do one of two things..1 disconnect the 20/24 pin powerconnector from the motherboard 2 disconnect the cpu power connector 3 disconnect the 6pin power connector from the graphics card if there is one some machines have onboard video chipsets if thats the case then no worries 4 disconnect the Harddrive power 5 jump the power supply to see if you get any power from it any questions on that go to youtube and type in how to jump a power supply... or option 2 is buy a new power supply make sure its 80plus certified and replace it...i know its a lot of work but i hope this has helped you
try replacing your ram.if your ram is bad you wont get no picture on your monitor but your puter will start.2 if you have a video card turn off you puter for a few minutes and plug your monitor to your original display.
You just need to get a video with dual monitor support , so that you can connect two monitor on that emachine tower , because basically emachine only came with a video card that you can only connect 1 monitor...
Install the driver for the monitor on your emachine? If you have a driver already installed, try reinstalling it or check that you have the latest version.
If you do not have the cd-rom with the driver, go to the monitor manufacturer's website and download the driver.
This should solve the problem :-)
I've owned nothing but e-machines towers for probably 9yrs. I've had this exact problem with two of them already. E-machines are notoriously known for power supply problems (which is usually about a $50 fix), but oddly enough the two problems I've ever had with the tower not powering up, resulted in being a problem with the motherboard. You can order another one, but it's VERY costly. Odds are that your info is still perfectly intact on your harddrive. When I experienced this problem, I removed the harddrive and installed it as a backup drive within a new tower. (I know you probably ask 'why keep buying them', but in my opinion, Gateway does a REALLY good job of keeping their "e-machines line" with up-to-date features and it's definitely hard to beat the low price!)
If you still have a perfectly functioning monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, etc, you may want to consider buying just a new tower (approx $250-$400 depending on brands)
