>Unplug computer from wall outlet.
>Open side panel on case.
>Unplug all cables from your hard drive(s), DVD drive(s), and cooling fans. Also, the main motherboard power cable plugged into the motherboard; it's a wide plug with numerous cables coming out of it and will be a bit hard to unplug. Do not pull on the cables themselves, grasp the plastic plug and work it off the motherboard socket. There may also be a snap catch that you have to press while pulling.
>There are 4 screws on the rear of the computer that hold the power supply in place. back those out. Make sure the power supply doesn't just fall. Usually there is a small ledge that it rests on but no guarantee on that.
>Remove the PS. Usually they just slide out, but sometimes it is a bit tricky to free it from the case if the PS hits the rear of the DVD drive; you just have to work with it.
>Slide in the new PS, mount it with the screws and replug all the cables. If you arent't sure, label the cable plugs and where they go with bits of masking tape, it will help you remember which cable goes to which socket. Check on the rear of the new PS, there may be an on/off switch. If there is, turn it on. Do not get confused with the 120/240 USA/European converter switch! Leave it on 120v for American power.

Ive tried 3 diff hd's all say no os found when i inow there is a os there its a e-machine any suggestions

A hard drive is where your operating system is located, so did you install the operating system onto each of the three hard drives. And if they were already installed prior to you installing them into your system it still wont work, it will need to be configured for your hardware setup. Put in a hard-drive and install the os from scratch this will get you up and running.
