Question about Computers & Internet
this could be a few things wrong here.
the first thing i would get checked is the power supply.
Most likely either Motherboard or the CPU. Does this have a graphics card or built-in.
Standard procedure is to:
Clear the CMOS - chk manual for procedure.
Disconnect all cables from all drives and test.
Pull RAM and try with one module at a time in slot 1. Then try 1 in what might be slot 3, the 1st slot of second pair of slots.
Before giving up, I'd pull all the drive cables at once. Even carefully mark the front case wiring and pull everything but power switch if you can. You really want to remove all complications that might be an issue. Take it down to PSU, motherboard power, cpu fan and RAM.
Ok, there is Good news, and bad news. FIRST the bad news. You are not getting any power to the CPU. Fans and lights indicate motherboard power, BUT, power supplies ALSO provide power straight to the CPU, and if the CPU is not getting powered properly, it will not function.
or you could check these links out if the above does not work for you.

Before I start replacing hardware, I would boot to safemode, and let it run that way to see of the problem repeats. In Safemode, a lot of drivers and software that may be causing the problem won't start up.
As soon as your start your machine, tap the F8 key about twice a second. This should bring up a screen with several options. Select Safemode. You will get some warning, so just click yes on those. Your screen will look really strange, since your video drivers won't install. Let it run like that for a few hours. BTW, you won't have internet.
If that still reboots, or shuts down, chance are good it a hardware issue. Might be your Heatsink on the cpu is too dirty to cool, but the techs you took it to should have cleaned that.
Get back with us, and post how that works please.
You can also right click on My Computer>Manage>Event Viewer and look thru the different catagories. Look for issues with red marks on them. To read them, just click on them. This may give you idea what is failing.
A issues that is random is hard to troubleshoot.

Power off the computer, remove the power cable, and remove the Ram sticks from your computer, then power the PC back on
if it beeps, that is a good sign, since it is detecting that their is no ram present (which the PC needs to load Windows)
if it doesnt beep, try removing all of your PCI devices and try again
if it isnt putting out video, however, and you have tried different combinations with the Ram, try another power supply, otherwise it may be a bad motherboard
signs of a bad motherboard include high fan speed (and not slowing down), the LED on the front is either off or brighter than normal, instead of flickering, and no video
hopefully that helps

All the E-machine computers I've worked on had the video as part of the motherboard. You might try borrowing a pci video card from someone and intalling it just to test. My solution is to buy a new computer if it won't work anymore, Walmart sells them for $300 to $400 with a monitor now days.
