Hi,

My name is ArmyMason this isn't a big issue and it can be fixed. If you have a screw driver open the case by removing the screws in the back. if the computer is running tell it to shut down if it wants to boot back up pull the plug. Now with the case off, the front panel has clips on the inside of the case all you have to do is pop off the front panel. Pop out the button, the switch to turn on the computer should be attached to the case where the button is suppose to line up with on the panel. If the button is broken just leave it out put the front panel back on and put the case back together. Now see if you can turn on the computer without the button. If you cant reach it try poking something small in there to push the button. If you want to replace the button, I would check ebay or craigslist for a replacement case, they should be cheap. Also you dont nessessary need the exact model as long as they look the same it should fit.

Hope this helps,
ArmyMason

Green light on my power supply stays lit after unplugging


Usually the light will time out after the capacitor has drained. Your machine is getting a bit old , your PSU may be the problem. If you plug it in and push the on/off button and it blinks, fans spin and shuts down, it's most likely the PSU. Look for a in-line fuse on the Motherboard, if blown, replace. Look at the motherboard closely for damaged components, capacitors, etc.

I put in the recovery desk. I pushede F11 as prompted. I then pushed "R" for recovery and the computer shuts back down before recovery.


Hello,

Some model of emachine will cycle through the recovery process. When your pc shuts down after pushing R, is it immediatly or does the pc perform a bit longer and then shut down? Also, when it shut down, do you push any buttons? (you should not have to.)

Thanks

My computer wont turn on


Remove the power cable and hold down the power button for about 30 to 60 seconds. plug the power back in and see what happens. If fail look at the back of your computer ans make sure that the fan for the power supply is on. Also make sure that the red switch is set to 115V and not 220V. This is also located in the power supply.


If al has failed your power supply is no longer working and will need to be replaced.

Acerpower SV PC will Not turn off


More information would help to resolve this issue.

Are you shutting down by selecting Start and shutdown or have you tried pushing the power button on push (not holding the power button)?

Try this:
Press and hold the power button in solidly for about 10 seconds. If it shuts down before you get to 10 just let off the power button. This should work, but may not solve the problem.

If you reboot it and still can not shut down from Windows, hold power button until it shuts down, unplug the power cord and disconnect everything from the computer other than the keyboard, mouse and monitor. With the power plug still unplugged, hold the power button in for about 15 seconds (this resets the power supply and can clear a corrupt BIOS).

Reconnect power and after booting, see if you can shut down from Windows.

If still no go, click Start, Programs, Accessories, System tools and select System Restore.

Follow the prompts and select a bold date back to a time before you had problems shutting down. That should do the trick.

Let me know if you get it fixed or if you need more advice.

If this is a wireless keyboard there should be some kind of software that comes with it. The software should alert you when you push like scroll lock, caps lock, or num lock.

Or you can use this nifty little program that costs about $25. It stays in the icon tray and will notify you when you push any of those buttons. Here is a link to that website http://www.programurl.com/clever-keyboard-indicator.htm

I hope I have helped you.
