Hi Rpbarnhart.
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.

Hi MIchael,

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.
Good Luck!

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

SOURCE: Emachine - T6420 - Monitor

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.

Hard drive doesn,t power up. does this mean that it's bad?


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

When I turn it on, only the fans run. I cannot hear the hard drive run and the hard drive light on the bezel is solid yellow


look on bios to see if detects the hard drive ...if does not boot to windows...the hard disk has no reason to go on ....and the issues could be many ....check the Ram memory if do not appear anything on screen at all ...and just runs the coolers and clicks without boot at all...in this case its the Ram memory ...so check it ...get it out ..put it back ...and remove the bios battery to force it see them again .....if it is booting until the operating system should appear ...and after that nothing ...reinstall ...
Also .....if there is anything written on the screen ..read carefully ..usually it will say whats wrong ...and advise in same issues..like replace hdd ...or files missing ...or blue screen error from memory issues..

I have a Emachine desktop T6216 computer, that when i turn it on the fan comes on for about 5 seconds shuts off and power-up. Now when i turn it on the fan just runs and it doesn't power-up orupload


It is possible that the hard drive has crashed. If the power supply starts up but nothing else then it is either the mother board or the hard drive. If you take off the case and the CPU fan is spinning, then it is likely the hard drive. Your best bet is to take it into a shop if you are not comfortable with swapping out the hard drive.

I agree...sounds like a power supply problem. Typically a bad power supply will not damage the motherboard. It should still be functional.

Tried to boot the computer in bios. Check if the harddrive is detected in bios. If not detected. Shut down the system,take out the power cable.open the tower and disconnected the hdd IDE cable and connect it to a differnet IDE port. Restart the system and boot in bios check if hdd detected. If still not detected possible issue with hdd. Try connecting on different computer if still issue persist replace Harddrive.
