Emachine t5026 on and right off
Hi maybe you could try these steps I'm always doing when I experience the same problem as yours. This is only according to my experience fixing desktop computers.
1. Try to disconnect all the connection at the back of your computer tower then press the power button of your computer for 15 seconds to drain the remaining power.
2. Reconnect only the power button and the monitor cable then turn it back on. (If the same thing happened go to step 4 if not go to step 3)
3. ( From step 2 ) If it turned back on, most probably the problem is one of the devices that you just disconnected is causing the problem. Try to reconnect then one-by-one and each time you connect them turn on your computer, let's check if it's gonna turn on or not, just proceed until you finish connecting all of the device or until you pin point the root cause of the issue.
4. (From step 2 ) If it didn't turn on, Open up your computer tower and reseat the video card, then turn on the computer
5. If still the same problem, remove your hard drive and turn on your computer, if it turned on, meaning that the hard drive might be the problem, if not, just put it back in
6. If still the same problem, remove the memories from your computer, if you have more than one memory installed remove them all, test the first memory to the 1st slot and to other slots one-by-one, see if it turned on. Test the second memory and so on, to the 1st slot and so on. Do it only with one memory testing each memory.
7. Reseat the power cord coming from the power supply, the 21 pin and also the small one that is plugged into your motherboard,
8. Reseat the CPU
9. If all of those things failed, most probably that the power supply is causing the problem. it's also possible that the motherboard is affected, I hope not.
