Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Have an "old" emachine, a simple 2200-series. It is a bit slow but works fine for it's purpose.
Now, when I turned it on I see the blue power button is flashing and the mouse and keyboard is dead when I use the ps2 ports. If I pull out the keybort plug and insert it again, all lamps blink green but the nothing else.
The mouse (a laser mouse) is also dead. I move the mouse to a USB-port and then it get's power and I can atleast click around. I will test a USB keyboard and see if that works.
But I see some ppl have a flashing power button and it seems to indicate a buggy power unit. Could it be just that? Some kind of glitch in the power`? The weird thing is that everything looks like it should, but the dead keyboard and flashing blue power button.
Yes, it may be that the +5v supply from the PSU is faulty, as the PS/2 ports run on 5v and USB runs on 9-12v. Replace the PSU with another of the same form factor and same power rating or better (>=230W). They come at ~£30, so not too expensive. For a little more. Try this:

Does the light flash in a particular pattern? eMachines may have diagnostic codes to let you know what is wrong. eMachines website suggests unplugging the power for 10mins then trying again. Not sure what your exact model number is, but this might help:
