Your power supply may have failed. Such failure is common, especially with the low quality supplies used in some machines these days. Sometimes this is due to the failure of the fan inside the supply, which causes overheating, and eventual component failure (especially of the electrolytic capacitors). If you have a voltmeter available, you can check for the presence of voltages on the cabling which connects to the computer motherboard, drives etc.

Google for the proper pinout specifications- the cabling has colored wiring.

Have the computer plugged in- first check for the standby voltage- a +5 volt line which powers a small circuit on the motherboard. If this is missing, your machine will not power up at all. If present, then press the ON button, and check for voltages on the red and yellow wires. On the red +5 volts, yellow +12. These should be very close to those exact readings. If more than a few tenths of a volt off (esp. the +5), then the supply is bad also.

I have a bit of an extrapolation on a similar problem. I've got a hercules 500w max power supply on my geforce 6100 sm-m mother board and it died suddenly during use. I went to power it back on and it powered up the fans, but not the hard drives or graphics card, so I shut it down from the swith on the supply, waited a minute, flipped it back on, and... now the blue light for the power switch on the tower doesnt light up, but the restart button light does and the fans power up in the case and on the processor and all, but not the hard drives and still no signal from graphics card either. I looked in the hercules and I dont see any clearly (by eye) popped caps. would you still go down the road of bad supply knowing the hercules is problematic, or would you think maybe cmos battery?
any help would be very much appreciated, thanks guys

Computer unplugged from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

1) Remove the Side Panel.
Viewing the computer from the Front; the Right Side Panel removes. Remove screw, pull Side Panel to the rear of the computer.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883113140

Click on the large main photo.
There are 9 smaller views shown. 3 across, and 3 rows.
Bottom row, click on the photo in the Middle.
Shows Rear view of computer.

Along the back edge of the Side Panel, is a finger pull handle formed out of the Side Panel. There also looks to be two screws. One above the pull handle, one down towards the bottom.

2) Remove the Front Bezel.
Click on the Middle row/middle photo.
Also look at Middle row, 3rd photo. (Photo all the way to right)

There are 3 Black tab locks, formed out of the plastic of the Front Bezel. One towards the Top, one in the Middle, and one towards the Bottom.

If memory serves these tabs are gently pulled to the outside, to release the Front Bezel. Ease the Top tab out a little, and Middle tab.

Start easing the Front Bezel away from the metal framework, of the computer case, a little. Then release the Bottom tab.
Front Bezel should swing, and then come off.

Not your Gateway model of computer case, but this Gateway model shows the plastic Tabs to release,

http://support.gateway.com/s/CASES/3501975/3501975faq6.shtml

The Power On Button is an assembly. The plastic housing of the Power On Button assembly, has a Power On switch inside.
I gently heat the plastic with a hair dryer, moving the hair dryer back, and forth at it.

Once the tabs of the plastic, of the Power On Button assembly, is softened; then I remove the Power On switch.

I have found this ATX power on switch, fits a LOT of desktop computers,

DX4822-01 will not power up


Time to diagnose Mike.

See if the problem is a Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

The procedure is to use a jumper wire, on the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

Photo of motherboard,

http://www.skyline-eng.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=7982

Click on the image of the motherboard to enlarge.
Look at the top/middle edge, and between it, and the ram memory slots.
There is an opaque white connector with 24 socket holes.

This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Look at the photo to the Right. Power cable plugged into motherboard. See the Green wire?
That is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON.

You are going to briefly jump it to ANY Black wire.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Does not involve cutting on any wire's insulation.
A straightened out paperclip bent into a U-shape, is the jumper wire.

The top is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This taped area is for your fingers to hold onto.
Turn the U upside down, and the 'legs' are what is used.

Power Supply plugged into power, power cable plugged into motherboard;
Where the wires go down into the power cable's connector, is the BACK of the connector.

One leg of the U-shaped jumper wire goes down into a socket hole, with the Green wire. Goes down into the Back of the connector, and right next to the insulation of the Green wire.

Has to past the insulation of the wire, and MUST touch a metal terminal that is connected to the end of the wire.
(About 3/8ths of an Inch)

[Every wire going down into that power cable, ends in a metal female terminal that resembles this example,

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

Looking at the photo in the middle of the Playtool link, you can barely make out the tip openings of these female metal terminals. Look like to be brass ]

The other leg of the U-shaped jumper wire goes down into ANY, socket hole that has a Black wire in it.

The contact time is to be no more than 2 seconds.
The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.

Power used in the Soft Power On circuit is 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC.

There MAY be a spark. Advising you ahead of time.
You may wish to use a glove on the hand that holds the jumper wire.

IF, the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.
IF, the Power Supply does Not come on you have a bad Power Supply.

You can lay the computer on it's side, opening of computer case up, so that it is easier to work on.

You SHOULD follow Anti-Static Precautions, once you have opened the computer case.

Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static before working on your computer.

Computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame, of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

Also clean out the inside of the computer. Use a can, or two of compressed air for computers. (Computer UNPLUGGED from power)

The Power On Button is an assembly. The Power On switch is a separate unit, and contained within the Power On Button assembly.
MOST of the time this ATX power on switch is used,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

The plastic of the Power On Button assembly is probably pretty brittle. Heat and age over time has made it so.
I use two methods to soften the plastic enough, so that tabs do not break when trying to remove/replace the Power On switch;

1) The Power On switch has been deemed to be bad. No need to worry about it's condition now, it's going in the trash.
So I fill a bowl with as hot a water as I can stand, and dip the Power On Button assembly in it, holding onto the wires.

Plastic softens then begin.

2) Use a hair dryer, and constantly keep the nozzle moving back, and forth across the Power On Button assembly.

My emachines et1300-02 won't turn on how to fix it


See if the problem is the Power On switch, or Power Supply, Kimberly.

Bypass the Power On switch.
The test does Not involve the Power On switch, or it's wires.

1) First follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE, reaching inside your unplugged from power computer.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

2) Open the computer case:
Viewing the computer from the Front, the Left Side Panel removes.
There is a Thumbscrew, or Philips screws along the edge of the left Side Panel.
Loosen the Thumbscrew/s all the way, or remove the Philips screws.

Use the fingerpull molded out of the back of the left Side Panel, and pull the Side Panel to the rear of the computer.
May only pull back about 1 inch, then is brought straight out to the side.

You also may wish to remove all cables, and lay the computer on it's side, opening up. Easier to work on, will not affect the computer.
(You could turn the computer upside down, and it will work just fine.
Not the optical drive though! Disk would fall out, lol!)

There is a main power cable going to the motherboard.
It is a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

Here it is shown in the ET1300-02,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883114079


Look at the main view. Has four smaller views underneath it, and three dots after the four views.
Click on the 3 dots.
This takes you to a small screen that shows many views of the ET1300-02.

Left-click on the middle photo in the second row.
Shows the left Side Panel removed.

The 24-pin ATX main power cable is in the middle, and next to the red SATA cable that goes up to the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, a jumper wire is used on the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

The preferred jumper wire is a straightened out paperclip, bent into a U-shape.
The top of the U, is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

Turn the U-shaped jumper wire upside down. The 'legs' are what is used.

Looking back at the Playtool link above, look at the view to the far right.
See the Green wire?
The green wire is the Soft Power On wire. If it is jumped with a wire that is a Ground wire, the Power Supply is supposed to turn on.

Note where the wires go into the connector, of the 24-pin ATX main power cable. This is the Back of the connector. This is also where the 'legs' of the jumper wire goes.

The 'legs' of the jumper wire goes down into the squarish socket holes, RIGHT NEXT TO the existing wire that is in the socket hole.

One leg goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
Slides past the insulation of the wire, and touches a metal terminal down at the bottom of the wire.

All wires going into that 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, end in a metal terminal.
The metal terminal looks like this, (Only smaller),

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

Looking at the photo in the middle on the Playtool link, you can see the rounded tips of those metal terminals. (They go over contact pins on the motherboard's connector)

The jumper wire MUST touch that metal terminal.

The other 'leg' of the jumper wire goes down into ANY socket hole, that has a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Voltage used? 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC.
Not saying there may be a spark. For this reason you may feel safer wearing a glove on the 'jumper wire hand'.

The contact period is no more than 2 seconds. The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.

IF, the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

IF, the Power Supply does Not come on you have a bad Power Supply.
Replace.

There is circuit problem inside. For safety reasons power might get shut down! Unless the fault is rectified, this problem will continue. Do not attempt switching ON again & again. Get authorised service center assistance.

Hit power button and nothing other than lights flicker once


Remove everything from the board except the front panel hookups.Make sure you remove memory, video card, hard drive and cdrom cables, hard drive and cdrom power, anything plugged into the back except the power. If it will power up this way start plugging things back in between power cycles. Start with memory then power down. Then add video then power down. Continue with Cdrom, then hard drives. When it stopps wanting to power on you know where the issue lies. If it wont power on with nothing on it then the motherboard is probably bad. Hope this helps.
