Hi i have an emachine that is about 2 years old. I have been having some technical problems with it lately, and now when i try to turn it on, i hear the fan go but it does not stop and nothing comes on. Its sounds like the computer is frozen when i turn it on, as the fan noise usually resolves once the computer turns on... but now nothing is happening!
I also must apoligize, i am a novice when it comes to computers, so i do not know all of the tech language! Hopefully this all makes sense. Thanks!

Re: trouble starting up computer
First thing to do is remove as much as you can from the motherboard, cdrom,some memory(if possible) floppy drives ect... any slot cards then try it and plug each item in and reboot each time till you find whats causing it. or could be a week power supply

Flashes & beeps indicate a start up failure on the motherboard. You'd need to google the trouble codes for your particular make & model to determine which mother board system is the problem. It might be simple like a mother board battery failure or something more complex like unreadable bios. If the computer is a few years old, it's not good. If you are curious, bring it to a repair shop but I can tell you 95% of the time you end up buying a new computer after you pay the shop fee. Why? Because you find out the repair costs almost as much as a better replacement on Amazon. Do yourself a favor. Get the replacement and have the computer shop recover your files from the old unit or pay $23 and get the DIY kit on EBAY. Good luck.
