Does the power supply have its own power switch?

It is located next to where the power wire plugs into the back of the PC.

    If it does have one, it may have been accidentally turned off when you moved it. It will be a small black square switch. Just click it to the other position.

    If it doesn't...

    Emachines are notorious for 'buggy' power supplies, and it (the power supply) may require replacement.

    Without knowing the exact model of your PC, it's hard to tell if it has the switch or not.

    Aside from the usual troubleshooting (disconnected cables, etc), the only other thing can be a bad power supply.

  • Anonymous Jan 11, 2008

    OK, that's a start. However, I've seen weird situations where the fans would work, but no video, etc.

    Was the PC "bumped" or dropped when it was moved?

  • Anonymous Jan 11, 2008

    There's a SLIM chance that the power switch connector has fallen off the mainboard.

    If you post the exact model number, I will try to find a wiring diagram for you.

    While I look for the diagram, read this forum regarding Emachines power supplies...

Moving internet to another room

As long as you have an active DSL connection in the new room, yes you should be fine. All settings are saved in the router's flash memory and won't be lost by disconnecting the power. Make careful note of where everything is plugged in (a digital photo is great!) and in the worst case, you can move it all back until you figure out what is wrong.

No Sound

carefully plug back the minijack for the speaker at the out or spk,
normally the sound card has three ports 1. for MIC 2. LINE IN 3.OUT (SPK) - SPEAKER.
carefully plug the minijack for the speaker into the third one - OUT (SPK) - SPEAKER.
in pluging it in, first put on a media clip on the windows media player and carefully plug in the minijack for the speaker and surely you will hear sound.
