Emachine with XP home edition doesn't start

Emachine was purchased new 3 years ago last Oct. I turned it off one night, next morning when turned on it acted as though were not plugged in. I checked back of pc as well as surge protector plugs, all were fine. Purchased new surge protector, still no power to pc. Had no problems when using prior to turning off. Ideas on what would cause this?
This is a T2824.

    Hi, I have a simular problem. My Emachine just stopped one day. I have taken the computer apart, cleaned the entire case and all components with a vacuum. I replaced the power supply today. All I see is the little green LED on the motherboard. Nothing else? My new power supply was not a direct replacement, it was a 350 watt as opposed to the original 250 watt. I'm just about ready for the GEEKS!

    Any Help?

Hi hearalso, down to the basic's. Replace power cord.
No help there than, remove the case's side panel to expose the motherboard. (Normally it is the left side panel while facing the front of the PC.)
Look closely for a small (green in color) led light. The power cord must be connected to the PC & connected to you're power strip but do not press the power on button on the PC.
The green led tell's you the board is receiving 5volts. Check all connections. Un-plug & reconnect every data & power connector in your PC. (Double check). There is a fuse inside your power supply that may have blown. Check you're manual page, Approva Statements B-1. Fuse Warning Instruction Caution.
Check fuse in power supply. (Unplug power cord before opening).
If you can not power up the PC after all of the above than if possible, swap out the power supply.
Replacing the power supply is the last step.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask.
Good Luck!

Mike

Chances are its a spark plug or coil. You should have a trouble code in the computer for the cylinder in question. The flashing light means the problem was serious at the time.

My Bose Lifestyle 38 starts automatically


I experienced same problem about a year ago. Learned that a neighbor (3 houses away) purchased a 38 system and was having same problem - went to the owner's guide (troubleshooting) - then changed the house code and that fixed it (for both).
