You are probably right the fan or the power supply. Most likely the CPU fan. Emachines have always had problems with noisey fans. The fan noise has nothing to do with the software on the computer. Deleting software doesn't help the problem. I'd have the fan and the power supply checked. Hope this helps

Very likely it is the power supply fan. I also had a noisy fan and replacing it was a solution. try to get the measurement for the screw mounting dimensions and the height (thickness) and also the driving voltage then search ebay's site. it can be cleaned and lubricated however...

Your machine was difficult to track down. As far as I can tell, the 5260 is the Intel motherboard. Below is a link to a page where you can individually download the drivers you require. Best of luck!

I have a emachine W4885 desktop that won't bootup.

First unplug it and remove the case (usually two screws on the back) then plug it back in and start it while looking inside. Are any fans moving? are they clean and free of dirt?
If no fans are moving, i would presume it to be a weak power supply which can be replaced for about 35 bucks and installed fairly easily.
If the fans are running but incredibly dirty they will not protect things and could , if they haven't already damage the motherboard, power supply, etc.
Check the power supply first as these commonly get weak or go out, then post again here..
