Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Do you hear the system POST (Power On Self Test). In layman's terms that's when the system beeps and does a systems check. If you don't here this, the motherboard is usually dead. It could be another component though.
So, if you disconnect everything externally and internally down to the CPU and a few RAM chips (only what's required to do a POST) and a keyboard, to then see if it POSTs.
If it doesn't POST, then, if possible, try a new CPU, RAM, and Keyboard, other than this, you would replace the motherboard.
If it POSTs, you need to let us know how far it gets in the boot process and what error messages appear. If the boot is short of successful, you can still do the same things listed above to see which component is failing. The replace it. A process of elimination.

i have been to fic's web site, i cannot find any mb labeled au31.
do you have anymore information about the board, how old, which processor, what socket, which north bridge, south bridge, which model system, etc?
however the pins are usually marked "pwr sw" or "pwr" and are usually with all the other front panel connector pins.
