You have what sounds like a RAM problem. Try known good RAM as a test. If it still fails, remove add on cards except video. Make sure that video card works. If it still fails to boot. Replace motherboard.

All computers need three things to boot. All the rest can be disconnected and it will boot. Need a keyboard, system ram and video card. I don't know the beep codes for an emachine but it doesn't sound like your problem is good. If I remember right your video card is built into the motherboard and those systems are a quite a few years old.

Check all your cables in your computer and make sure they are all hooked up properly and hooked up tight or if the ram is out of the holders this sometimes happens when you dont have something hooked up right or something isnt right internally or it could be something else, thats some solutions you could try

Hi,
Bios usually has to be entered initially at system bootup, sometimes within seconds of it starting.
There are usually three possible bios entry settings, depending on the systems bios manufacturer.
Try tapping repeatadly, either F2 Esc or Delete at system startup.
