    I don't see how removing the battery would help but tried for the same problem and it did in fact do nothing.

    The fan races but the system never makes it to the Bios and never displays anything on the monitor. I suspect a chip is fried on the MoBo.



    Maxum52, please post the solution if you found one.

    Have exacty the same problem as Maxum's. I have changed the sleep delays, no help. Problem seems to be getting worse, takes more attempts before it finally boots.

Thanks raider, believe you and chris may be right. I was told that the power supply was the likely problem, but swapping out the old power supply did not fix it, so I changed the motherboard as well. Have to be careful when getting a mother board as need to be sure that the processor socket is correct as are the internal connections. Likely will need a new power supply to marry to the motherboard. Cost was under $100 for both and I don't have the problem any longer.

The motherboard looks to be sick.

you can try to take the cios battery out, wait 15 sec and then put it back again.

In my opinion you have a faulty power supply, replacing only the fan may not solve your problem. Try replacing the power supply.

I have a T3626 emachine that I replaced the drive.


check all your ground screws on the motherboard. If that doesn't work try booting it up with out the hard drive. if that doesn't work, pop out the BIOS battery and unplug your computer, let it sit for about a min. and put the battery back in and restart.

Emachine Will not boot


different beeping patterns are codes which indicate what part of the hardware has failed (ram, video card, cpu, ect). the fan failure would not cause beeps, and would not cause the cpu to fail unless already in windows. if you could find out the manufacturer of your motherboard you could check with them about what the paticular pattern of beeps which you are getting mean.
