Re: disconnected wires

If you feel comfortable working inside the computer, after taking electrostatic precautions and ensuring the power is off and disconnected, look for a group of colored wires which plug on to a set of pins near one corner of your motherboard. The power wires should be marked "PWR" (or something similar) on the end of the wire, and the appropriate place for it on the motherboard should have the same marking.

If in doubt, take it back to who/where you got if from, and ask them to do it for you, or give us the eMachines model number and we can give more specific info on how to proceed.

Safety first. If you're the slightest bit unsure about what you're doing...DON'T DO IT!!!

Flashing light on front panel will not boot

Unplug the unit from the power at the wall socket. Wait one minute, Reconnect. Retry. Beyond that you'll have to check the hardware: memory, motherboard, internal power supply control, CPU, oh, and the microswitch behind the On button

Keyboard wont print screen

Try unplugging your keyboard, restarting your computer and then plugging the keyboard back in.
If there is no change, try updating the keyboard driver by going to "Start" and searching for "Device Manager". Find your keyboard on the list of devices under the "Keyboards" section.
Right click on it and click "Properties" then "Driver" and then "Update Driver"

Emachine e627 won't bootup

You're probably going to have to get someone to physically look at this for you. eMachines are notorious for having trouble sometimes. However, since you haven't described exactly what it DOES and DOES NOT do, it's hard to tell. Good luck! :)

I'm unable to get the start menu to come up on my Emachine?

if you do not see the welcome window of the bios, check if you have power, if power LED lights? if so, disconnect the power cord, and open the case, carefully disassemble the memory card ram, and blow the socket, 90% of cases like yours is dirty or bad connection in the RAM, you can also reset the bios, the easiest way is by disconnecting the battery 3v, for a few seconds, must return to the factory settings, it helps if you have any problem with video, I hope it may have helped

Connection between emachines case and motherboard

Most likely the wires are for power, reset, and hard disk light. Touch one pair together momentarily, if your compter comes on then connect those wires to the power button. After the computer is on, connect the other two pair to the hard disk light one pair at a time until you see the light activate when the hard disk is running. Then connect the remaining pair to your reset button.

Hooking my emachine monitor with compac tower

Make sure that you are connecting to the video output on your Compaq that is configured (such as a PCI video card versus the integrated Graphics on your MoBo) and when reconnecting monitors, make sure the machine is powered down before connecting or disconnecting.
Since you say that "the only thing that show up is the arrow button", I assume you are referring to your cursor, and if that is correct? You're PC would be attempting to boot to windows and there may be a hardware conflict that may be stalling it. There could also be corruption in the windows installation. But the monitor should be simple "Plug and Play".
More details about your Graphics Card and any recent hardware software changes/occurrences that have taken place would help.
Good luck.
