    sounds like a lock up on boot. I would certainly try a some different memory.



    However, its no big secret Emachines has the worst motherboard issue of all PC's, so having it tested by a repair professional, may be in order.

Most probably the keyboard has konked out. Simply try the same with a working keyboard & mouse, 'cos it seems to get stuck during POST(power on self test) due to one or more components malfunctioning. If you had removed the PS2 jacks recently, check for bent pins too.................sodeep

How do I reset bios on emachine d3415


When you say reset...do you mean that you want to restore the bios back to their original factory settings?  
That can usually be done from the bios (reboot, press either F2 or F10...the screen that displays upon boot will let you know what to press) ...there should be an option to re-set the bios back to the factory settings.....
But if that is not wat you are trying to do, let me know.
