Try to boot in safe mode, if you still get nothing try a dirrent monitor, just to rule out the monitor then we can work on the computer.

Computer idles high then shuts down

When you say "idles high" do you mean you hear fans spinning faster or louder? If so, a fan spinning at higher than normal speeds is indicative of components/chips being run aggressively causing them to run at much higher temperatures. You may want to look into getting temperature monitoring software like CPU-Z to monitor the temperatures of your CPU and GPU. These components are the most common ones to be running at high temperatures. If any fan has failed on them the secondary fans (if there is one) will run at much higher speeds to compensate. Your PC may have a safety precaution to automatically shut down if certain temperatures are reached to prevent permanent damage to the components. Are you getting any blue screens before it shuts down?

My modem blinks off and on , when my pc is idle. Is that normal? and where could I buy a book on info on e-machines? When my monitor goes dark, then my modem starts blinking off and on. My computer is...

your modem is always talking to your service even when not connected to your pc it is just showing that it is working. Emachine manuals are a little hard to find, your best bet is to contact the store where you bought it, I know Best Buy used to sell the, they may have a manual, and you could try contacting emachines directly.

Hard starting after rebuild

My name is Dennis and I also have the model you are having difficulty with and I can only repeat the instructions from the owners manual (with personal comments) because they have always served me adequately I hope that will serve your needs.
There are three adjustment screws on the carburetor labeled
H (for High speed MIXTURE)
L (for low speed MIXTURE)
T (for idle SPEED SETTING)
They are located just above the primer bulb. If your saw floods so soon in the starting process the idle mixture setting can be set too rich and the speed may be set too slow. Remember the chain will not move when the idle speed is set correctly with a WARM ENGINE!
Adjust the idle speed to just below chain movement WITH A WARM ENGINE this is just below the activation RPM of the centrifugal clutch. Let the engine run at a higher speed than idle until it is warm -- 3 min -- you may have to keep goosing it until then.
Please don't exceed the limits of the plastic limiters when making adjustments.
If you haven't adjusted the mixture screws you may just have to adjust the idle speed and that can start my turning that screw all the way in to the stop and then back out 4-1/2 turns for a good place to start. FAST IDLE -- Adjust the speed until the engine runs with out the chain moving. Adjust clockwise to increase speed. C clockwise to decrease engine speed.
Accelerate the engine and if it stumbles and makes too much smoke it's too rich turn the
LOW SPEED MIXTURE (in) clockwise in 1/16 a turn increments NO MORE at a time because a two cycle needs to run at a setting for a short time to really prove the setting. don’t run it wide open to warm it up but it should be at a fast idle. Nothing you do will be proven correct until the engine is warm.
Good Luck
Glad to be of assistance - please rate the solution because I will learn from your rating. Thank you

T5082 keeps abruptly shutting down

Sounds like it may be overheating. If you get warning beeps on startup that sounds high, low, high low, it is overheating. you should inspect and clean the fan on the processor with a vacuum or compressed air ans also clean the power supply area with a vacuum to clear all the dust out. Inspect and wipe any other dust away from the motherboard and card inside. After restarting, it still goes off, check that the fan is running during startup. If not, the fan needs to be replaced at a nominal cost. This is an easy fix. If this all fails, let me know so we can troubleshoot everything together.
