    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.

    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.

The fan keeps running on my emachine pc


to cure this increased fan speed and overheating issue, i strongly suggest you get a few cans of 3m or whatever brand duster cans are available to you. remove the side case cover with the system shut down and power supply unplugged and blow the dust off the fan blades and heat sink fins located behing the fan that covers the boards processor. some dust may be stubborn and can be remove with a gentle assistance from a tooth brush. be sure the air inlets at the front of your pc case a free and clear of blockages too. this should prevent your fans from running at such a high speed as needed to cool your system.

My emachine won't work at all i don't even get the windows picture it keeps going to setup in the blue color then black


Is the monitor plugged in properly?
Can you get to the BIOS? --> Does it display the words on the screen during the boot process before the Windows Splash screen?
I'm not sure what setup in the blue color means. If it's the BSOD or Blue Screen of death then let it cool (power it off) and boot again later. Perhaps a heat issue. If you do actually get it to boot copy your most critical data off the hard drive quickly.
Could be a lot of things.

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.
