Emachine shut down

I recently purchased the T3646 Emachine and when I shut it down it appears to shut down (the light on the front goes off) but my cable modem stays lit, also my MP player continues to charge. When I shut down my Compaq computer my cable modem PC activity light and MP charge light went off. It seems that the computer is still being powered. Is there a way to shut it off completely without unplugging it? Thanks for your assistance.

No, it's just the USB ports that are still being powered.
Totally normal in most new computers. Same thing with the PS2 ports.
There are jumpers on the motherboard that can change this if you really want. It's designed like that to keep things like you have powered for when you do turn it on and need them.

El1210-09 won't shutdown


Step 1:
Most people who own an eMachine computer will find that they will need to reset the computer at some point. It is a fact that PCs are more prone to viruses and malware than Macintosh computers. Sometimes the only way to restore an eMachine is to simply reset it. Fortunately, it is not a difficult process to reset an eMachine computer.

Turn off the computer. If the computer is in a state that it can be properly shut down, follow the normal shutdown process. On the other hand, if the computer is not reacting to anything, simply pull the cord from the wall. Restart the computer. Plug the computer back into the wall and press the Power button. Wait for the eMachine to reach the screen that reads "Press F11 to start recovery." Once this screen appears, press the F11 key on the keyboard multiple times to make sure that it registers. If the recovery screen does not come up, you will need to turn the computer off and back on again and attempt to press the F11 button again when the prompt appears. Select the proper option. After the recovery screen appears, there will be a list of recovery options. Scroll to the option that says "Full System Restore (with Backup)." Choosing this option will copy all of the contents of the hard disk to the c:\\My Backup directory. This will ensure that important files that have been created on the computer will not be deleted. However, the applications on the computer will need to be reinstalled. Allow the system restore to run its course. Depending on the age and effectiveness of the eMachine computer, it is possible this process could take up to 45 minutes. When the system restore is complete, the computer will restart itself. Reinstall applications. Any of the files created on the computer should be saved. However, the applications that created them need to be reinstalled.

Dark blue ink splodge on my computer screen


Check the warranty - I recently got an acer lcd from a friend (purchased as package deal like a eMachine), he bought a new one, and found it was still under warranty.
Try "Auto Reset" on the monitor setup panel, on monitor - not on computer.
I forgot the proper name but one of the light emitting diodes might have gone bad which causes lines, streaks and blobs (same as on laptop screens).

My emachine won't shut down locks up


Do a hard reboot, hold the powerr button for 13 seconds and it should power down.  You might have to unplug if this doesn't work.  It could have hung up during windows updates (this happens alot), let me know if this works and update me.
