Emachine not responding

I'm trying to fix a broken computer that my dad gave me. When I first plugged it in and turned it on it worked normally so I couldn't work out why my dad said that it was not working. A few minutes late I noticed that the power light was no longer on, after that it will not switch on at all.

I have tried playing around with disconnecting different parts and I have tried leaving it overnight without the power or battery but I had no luck. Why would it suddenly work again the first time I try it and then magically break again?

Anyone got any ideas on what I can try?

    Ok, I have played around with it and I have made progress....ish!

    I now have power, the fan on the power supply is working and the main fan is working...ish. The main fan jutters and requires you to blow in it to get it started. Nothing else is responding.

    The power button is flashing rappidly and there are no other LEDs on.

    OK, I have to say fixya....ish here.

    I have bought a new powerfully and a cook little doodad that checks if the power supply is working. I discovered that the old power supply was faulty and have replaced it. The fan now works properly not.... HOWEVER...

    The main power light around the button is still flashing. The disk drives are not working and when I plug in a monitor I hear an odd ticking but nothing else happens.

    Is this the motherboard? There are no beeps, same as before.

    Oh and I forgot to mention, I have tried plugging in a usb light, the light seems to flash compared to it on my working computer.

    This problem was the same before I got the new power supply.

Sounds like intermittent power supply. Power supply not putting out required voltages.

Hello my name is steven my dad gave me his hp pavilion a62n computer. I then plugged it in with my old computer wires and pressed the on button but after the lights came on and the fan started to spin...

I am assuming that it was working before he gave it to you.
Unplug the pc and open the case and touch the case to ground yourself before trying the next steps. Blow any dust out and away from all the fans, check that all the wires are plugged in tight, check the memory sticks and make sure they are pushed in. Try plugging it in with the cover open but do not touch anything inside with the power on and try it and make sure all the fans are turning. Let me know how this worked. Thanks for using FixYa

Emachine - no signal

This isnt a one step fix. Power off unit then while powering on tap F8 key to get menu with option to boot to safe mode. If this works could be a driver or malware issue which can sometimes cause windows to come up in safe mode but not normal mode. This is only a start not a solution.

1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
2. Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal.
3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.
