I have tried upgrading the memory on my eMachine W3118 with 2gb patriot memory. When the new memory was put in place, the power button when pressed will not boot the computer. I tried putting in the old memory and it does the same thing. Then I unplugged everything from the motherboard before plugging it back in and retrying with the old memory. It still just runs the fan and the hard drive doesn't boot at all.

I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.
Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.
maybe the memory upgrade is not supported by the system.
check the specification of the computer first and verify if it can support the memory you put into your computer.
remove the new memory and put back the old memory, (try if it works now)
if it works with the old memory, then definitely, the problem is with the new memory. make sure that the memory is compatible with the system and it supports the capacity of the new memory you have in it.
Your emachines eMachines T1100
only supports modules made with a specific type of chip. Should you
find what seems to be the exact same memory elsewhere for a lower
price, it is very possible that the cheaper memory will not work in
your computer. From what I see you should use straight PC-133 Try a site like Kahlon.com-they make sure it works with your computer as would kingston or corsair... Your maximum amount of ram is only 256mb total. hope this helps...good luck- please leave a rating...thank you kindly

Not knowing what model of computer you are talking about, I'd suggest you try various combination's with your memory modules as some computers are picky and accept certain size memory chips in certain slots only. Furthermore, it could be there is a bad connection on the sockets or if you have not been ESD safe, you could have zapped the memory chips and or the main board.
