Question about Computers & Internet
I have a emachines et1831-07 and its shutting down about 3 or 4 seconds into the boot process. I was told it was the power supply. So I bought a 550 watt rocketfish power supply and its still doing it. Any suggestions?

In addition to that, check also the heatsink on the processor if it needs dusting, it may be filled with dust that it doesn't allow air to pass through to cool off the processor.
Please keep us posted.

This happens because your CPU is overheating, open your PC and blow any dust off the openings and CPU/Power supply fans, if you think one of the fans is not working... replace it.

There are a lot of problems with Emachines as far as motherboards go. Since you've already replaced the power supply, it's safe to say that it's not causing your issue.
Since you seem comfortable with the inside of your machine, go ahead and take out all unnecessary components. If you've left your machine the way it was since you've bought it, start with the modem card that's in the bottom PCI slot. Often, those can cause issues with the computer not starting up, staying on, etc.
Also ensure that the machine is free of dust, and that all cables and connections are secure. Try not to let things float freely, and make sure you're plugging the machine into a surge protector, and not directly into the wall.

Power supply sounds fine. If the pc won't power up it could be your motherboard. If the pc is powering up and you get a 'no signal' on your monitor it could be your gpu.

I recommend checking your power settings in the control panel, it should actually be under display settings. It may under those settings somehow be set to shutdown in 10 minutes. You can find the power settings, sleep mode, UPS, and hibernation under the "screensaver" settings of display. Look for a tab on the screensaver settings that says"power settings".
