If it's completely dead when you turn it on, you probably have a bad power supply. They're fairly easy to replace and not too expensive unless it's proprietary to your machine, some are. Most towers will take a universal type power supply.
Also make sure it's plugged into a good power source, power strips and things can be flaky at times.

SOURCE: Emachine w3650 recovery disks....

One option is to run virus removal software in windows safe mode which is started by pressing the F8 key when starting up the computer. I suggest running an online scan such as trend micro housecall at housecall.trendmicro.com/ . This will probably remove the virus. Also, is there important data on the hard drive that she will need? If that is the issue, there are other ways to copy files from the hard drive without actually copying the virus. Let me know exactly what you want to do? If you just want to run the recovery, but lose everything that was on the hard drive, use the F11 and it will completely refresh your computer to how it was when you got it. The discs aren't necessary as the recovery section is on the Hard Drive.

SOURCE: Compac Evo D300v and Emachine W3650-usb do not detect devices

One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
 
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
10. ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safly Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar.It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.
SPECIAL NOTES
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

Wont boot up properly looking to reformat


Check and see if there's a Disk in your CD/DVD ROM Drive. I assume there's on in there that has some bootable files and your computer see's it and is asking to boot from it. Usually it will say something like "Press any key to boot from CD" so if you don't want boot from that CD just don't press any keys.

Some emachines can be restored by pressing ALT+F10, but not sure on your model. Give it a try if you can't restore it to factory defaults using Emachine recovery management.
