Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
About a month ago the power saver would shut off the computer. I cleaned vents and worked good until now, it just shut off. I removed cover and cleaned the dust but now I noticed the fans aren't working. It does power up. I have an emachine T2484 and it's about 4 years old. It's a business computer with all data on it and with the end of the year approaching, I'm desperate. Thanks for any help.
It is very possible that the power supply has gone out. If you hear the drives spinning up then its not. check the power supply thats what I'd do first

Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.
Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.
If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.
Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.
The fan speed on a laptop can determine how it operates consistently and reliably.
You can slow it down or speed it up, based on the circumstances.
For instance, slowing down the fan speed may be useful in reserving processes or during a prolonged slow time.
Speeding it up is beneficial in keeping the laptop cool during ongoing use or high-traffic times. For the long term, find a happy medium for regular use, so you won't "psyche" out your computer by constantly adjusting the settings.
Click on the Start menu and select "Control Panel." Next, choose "Performance and Maintenance."
Select "Power Saver."
To slow the fan speed, locate the slider next to "CPU Processing Speed" and slide it down by moving across to the left.
To speed up the fan, move the slider to the right.
Press "Apply" and then "OK," if prompted.
Hope this helps
