The ticking sounds like it could be your hard drive failed. The computer is not making any beeps or anything? just the ticking? If the pc is under warranty I would definetly handle it that way. If this is not the answer you are looking for please disregard.
Good luck,
Lee

My emachine keeps making a "rev-ing up noise when


That is the cpu cooling fan speeding up and slowing down. There is only one thing to do, switch the unit off and save some power.

It seems that the power supply unit has gone. If you power it on and nothing happens then obviously the psu has gone. The heat that you felt was the psu overheating because of no fan and hence no ventilation. The noise was of the faulty psu fan that got stuck or did not work and the psu got overheated and got burnt eventually. Please replace it with a new one as a repaired psu may work but you cant rely on it.

My W3410 eMachine desktop won't Boot at all!!!!!!


Sounds like a harddisk failure unfortunately. You might want to boot your original OS disc and perform a repair (non-destructive), this may either confirm an HD crash or fix the problem.

Hi, when I press the on button, the machine springs into action but immediately starts a ticking noise as if something is stuck. The blue light on the switch flashes in time with the ticking. It doesn't...


hi this is an odd problem. just keep the side off the computer start it up and listen in the side. you should be able to find where its coming from. if it is the power unit, i have never seen one yet that you cant open. sounds to me like the unit or cpu fan is clogged with dust n grime. you need to clean it out. let me know if this helps. you could also take everything out of the comp that doesnt have to be there, just leaving a cd-rom, floppy, hard drive and graphics card, then reboot......

Hello,

You might have a stuck key on your keyboard. I emphasize might.

Try this though:
Remove the power cord from the back of your PC. Leave it out for a minute or so. While it is unplugged turn your keyboard over and strike the top of the keyboard against your work area top a couple of times. Some debris may come out, could unstick any key that may be stuck. Reattach the power cord and if it doesn't power up immediately turn the power on and see if everything is okay or not.

If not, let me know by commenting back so I can talk you through another troubleshooting technique. Okay?

Regards,
Worldvet

Emachine shut down


No, it's just the USB ports that are still being powered.
Totally normal in most new computers. Same thing with the PS2 ports.
There are jumpers on the motherboard that can change this if you really want. It's designed like that to keep things like you have powered for when you do turn it on and need them.

Assuming you didnt leave a floppy disc in the drive causing windows to boot from floppy, if you have disconnected the drive you have to tell the bios not to look for the drive. Press F2 or Del while the pc is booting up and in the first window may be the option Halt on all errors, dissable this if it is enabled and also there should be a section to check for the floppy drive on boot up (this can stop the boot sequence if not found), dissable this also, this part could be in the main window where it shows the date and time or in the advanced cmos settings. If you have changed anything save settings and exit. Any pc will boot without the floppy drive, so there must be something stopping it from booting and at the moment it points to the floppy.
