Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
This just started yesterday. It was working fine, then suddenly, it would shut off. The lights would be on, but no fans running, nothing showing on the monitor. The screen would go black, and the light on the monitor would blink, as if the tower is off and just the monitor is on. HELP!!!
Emachines are notorious for having 'buggy' power supplies. It sounds like it is dropping off different output 'legs' intermittently.

Sounds like it may be overheating. If you get warning beeps on startup that sounds high, low, high low, it is overheating. you should inspect and clean the fan on the processor with a vacuum or compressed air ans also clean the power supply area with a vacuum to clear all the dust out. Inspect and wipe any other dust away from the motherboard and card inside. After restarting, it still goes off, check that the fan is running during startup. If not, the fan needs to be replaced at a nominal cost. This is an easy fix. If this all fails, let me know so we can troubleshoot everything together.
