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.

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.

My PC Will Not Start


Hi wah4pay,

this white USB plug has nothing to do with the eMachine not starting up. My guess about the white USB is it might be for your printer (If you have one). USB cable supplies 5volts DC only which it not enough to power a desktop or laptop PC.
As far as why the PC will not start, check the back side of the tower. See if the main power cable is plugged into the power supply & it also is plugged into a working wall outlet. There is a small RED slide switch on the back of the power supply. Make sure you can see the numbers & letter, 115v.
If the switch is set to 230v move it to 115v. Try starting the PC.
See this mini video of the T3646, you'll notice there are two USB ports on the back side of the PC & two more on the front of the case:

If this is a new PC, it most likely came with a one year warranty. You should call eMachine for free support. Your documentation will provide a phone number for support.
If your eMachine is not new or no longer under warranty let me know by posting here & I'll give you some other possible suggestions that may help get the system to start. Please include the year bought & month
