Emachine EL18252 G-52W won't start when pushing power button


Disconnect the desktop computer from the electrical power.
Plug it in, while looking at the computer, and listening for any noises (spinning fans, or lamps that light up) as soon as it is plugged in. Then, press the ON/OFF switch, and watch any lamps, and listen for any fans. If nothing, then the power-supply is the problem.

My computer was downloading windows updates overnight and froze. Tried turning it off from the power button, but did not work so I unplugged the computer. Few hours later I plugged the computer back in and...


You will have to get your power button unstuck. I do not know what type of button you have but if you would like to at least get your PC on without it instantly turning off, you can remove the power switch connector from the motherboard. You will eventually need to have the switch unstuck, or replaced though.

Maybe the problem is a faulty power supply. Have you checked its internal circuitry to ensure that everything's connected? Or is it a different problem where it functionally shuts down?

I cannot boot up the computer. When I push the front power button, nothing happens. When I flip the switch on the back, or unplug it for 30 secs and plug it back in, the fan starts up and a yellow light...


I had this happen to my emachines T1842 about a year ago. I replaced the power supply and it worked fine. It was about 25 bucks but fixed my problem. Make sure the red switch on the back hasnt been messed with. it should be on 115. If you have moved it, it may have blown a fuse inside the power supply.

Emachine t5026 not power on. replaced psu.


I would test the memory. Also I think some computers will shut down if the fan on top of the CPU quits working. Or maybe one of the other fans or the Hard Drive quit and is drawing too much juice causing the PSU to shut down. It sounds like something may be grounding.

My Computer wont Start up


I got a new fan for my PC, but it was under warranty. Your PC does not know that the fan does not work until it overheats. So, you have some other problem. Try to start it without a battery, just plugged in, if it is a laptop. All anyone else will tell you is that if you get it on, you should reflash the bios. That always is what they tell you. I guess it can't hurt, but if it shuts off immediately, maybe you think you have full power but don't? That's what it is acting like, right? No power.
