Stays on for less than 60 seconds

My eMachine t5212 stays on for less than 60 seconds and shuts down. It also makes a sound like a fire truck but not as load of course. It shut down sometime during the night and that was it. Thanks

    The fire truck sound is an alarm telling you something is wrong. Could you give a little more info as it looks like your posting was cut off. At this point it could be anything: motherboard, processor, memory, or power supply.

Blow out the computer with canned air. If the heatsink is full of dust then its overheating. Dont leave it on over night either.

Very sorry about your son.

If you can't find the real problem, you can always put that hard drive into another PC to get the files. If so, be sure to looking to a potential "jumper" setting on that drive for it to be recognized.

Emachine T5212 will not boot up unless operating system disc in used. Get direction to enter boot disc.

Restart, press DEL to enter BIOS and change the boot priority/sequence to boot from your HDD, second choice will be from CD-ROM and last from floppy. Next after saving the changes allow it to boot normally....sodeep.
