Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

USB error? When I turn my computer on, the blue light that usually surrounds the power button starts flashing. When I finally reach my desktop, my mouse becomes unusable (it's a USB wireless mouse). Thinking that it broke down or something, I grabbed a USB wired mouse, and connected it into the same USB slot. The USB wired mouse glows, but then it will not move. I got one of the older mouses that used the y-slot (I think that's what it's called) and tried out my other USB drivers and none of them appeared to be working. Is there any way to fix this?

Gateway computer power light flashes before booting up.


Hmm. I wouldn't have thought it had anything to do with pressing the button. It sounds more like a failing power supply or lack of current for startup. Did you make sure you plugged the power into the video card power connector (if it has one)? I know it worked ok at first but a heavier load can cause older or under-rated power supplies to fail soon after. Just a thought.

When I push the start button on my old Compaq Presario 7000 Desktop PC the power light above the button goes on and the file access light to the left of the button goes on and both stay on. I don't hear...


Try doing a power flee.. that is..

remove the power cable from the computer and all the usb devices if connected and the then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and then try rebooting the computer.

Another possibility is that.. computer is not able to find the boot sector on the harddisk due to which its not able to turn on completely.

Another possibility is that the device boot order of the computer might have changed too in the BIOS. To resolve it easily we need to chat with each other, so reach us at hnetworking.com

HP had blue screen and said it would shut down. Problem is that it does turn off, so that it can be re-booted. Have tried to shut off PC, but continues to come on and not start.


Hold the power button in for 10 to 15 seconds for hard shut down if that doesn't work unplug power for about 5 minutes then plug power back in and see what happens

Broken USB jack, no power.


1) Unplug the computer from power. Open the computer case.

2) TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case. (Not shouting)
This will relieve your body of Static electricity.

3) Unplug the front panel USB cable from the motherboard. (If there are two cables coming from the front panel, unplug them both)

4) Close the computer case.
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of Five seconds. Let go of the button.
Do this procedure two more times. (Total of three times)

What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and setting BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

5) Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.
If the computer still doesn't start, the motherboard is fried.
(I believe the computer will work okay)

There is no Service Manual available. If you follow the cable/s from the front panel to the motherboard, you'll see where it/they connect.

Wont turn on i get a flashing lite in the power on button


A flashing power light usually indicates a hardware failure. Try unplugging the computer for 30 second then turn it back on and see if it starts. If you plug it back in and it starts flashing again it is a bad piece of hardware (probably motherboard but no way to know for sure without testing)

Pover up trouble


sounds like something is drawing down on your 12 volt supply drives or on board regulators. Try it without the drives connectged, and see if you can get the system to boot up(you'll just get a notice that your drives are unavailable, but you'll already know that, right?

got backup for your Dell?
