Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Sounds like a bad motherboard. It's getting power and turning on the fans and everything, except booting it up. Yeah, sure sounds like a bad MB. How old is the pc? You have to be careful with Emachines. They are built cheap and break often.

1st thing, disconnect everything but keyboard mouse and monitor, see if anything changes.
If the issue persists, ensure that all power and card connections for the motherboard are tight and secure. If you've added RAM or other parts, remove them. Reseat the RAM in the motherboard that came from Dell.
If none of those ideas have any effect on the issue, replace the motherboard.

Check to see if there are any loose connections to the memory cards on the memory board. Make sure the data cable to the drives are connected properly. Is the fan in the power supply on?

Your Monitor is not connected properly
Connecting Your Monitor
1. Turn off your computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Connect the white connector end of the DVI cable attached on the monitor to the connectors on the computer.
3. Connect the USB cable that was included with your monitor to the computer and the upstream USB connector on the monitor. Once this cable is connected to the computer and the monitor, you can use the USB downstream on the monitor.
4. Connect any USB devices.
5. Connect the power cord.
6. Turn on your monitor and computer. If you do not see an image, see Troubleshooting Your Monitor.
NOTE: The Monitor will display full screen in White, Black, Red, Green and Blue color rolling pattern on screen if the DVI cable is not connected. This self test pattern will be displayed continually when Monitor detects that DVI cable from Monitor to PC is not connected.
* Check connection integrity at both ends of the video cable.
* Ensure the monitor and computer are plugged in to a working electrical outlet.
* Ensure power button is depressed fully.

Remove the memory chips again and reseat them in thier slots. This typically happens when you dont get the ram all the way in it's slot. Computer wont boot.
