I recently moved my desktop and when i plugged it in the computer wont start up. When plugged in i get a blinking light in the back of the modem but the computer still doesnt start. I have tried removing the battery and replacing it and also messing around with the cables that connect from the start button to the mother board (http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Intel2/102007/102007mvr20.shtml) and the best i got was the G to blink blue and the battery sign under to blink yellow

Try a Power Supply Unit (PSU) Reset: Unplug the electrical cable from the wall and the PSU (Back of Computer)
Move the red voltage selector to the opposite position it is in and then slide it back. If you live in the USA 120Vac to 220Vac back to 120Vac
After you have done this you can plug the power cable back into the PSU. Connect the power cable to the wall power. If the PSU is still serviceable it will no longer be blinking.
the blinking lights means power issue. If you already plugged the computers power cable directly to the wall and stll get the blinking power light then your probably looking at a bad power supply in the computer. Just for measures go into the system and if you have a video card remove it and start the system up. Also take out the memory stick and put them back in just incase during the move some components got loose. Put on your detective hat and check all connects. if problem still persist replace the power supply. In Computers terms thats called the PSU (power supply unit) Your friend Joel
A lot of those E-Machines used a small power supply (150 to 180 watts) and were known to have a failure rate. There is a way to check them by jumping across a two connector wires on the end that plugs into the Motherboard. Let me know if you want try this.
I've had that happen twice to my Vaio desktop and there was a very easy fix. I'm not a techie, but I found a recommended solution online when this first happened six months ago. I couldn't find the solution again, but I fortunately remembered the steps.
Remove the side pane to access your motherboard cables, etc. Locate the connector on your motherboard that contains the wires going from your power supply to your motherboard. It will be a large, rectangular connector with a lot of individual wires It is not a ribbon cable but should be located next to a ribbon cable connector andnext to a geen blnking light on your motherboard (when the power supply is plugged into the wall). Note: This green blinking light is in addition to the green blinking light on the back of the PC.
This next step is important: You have to disconnect the connector noted above from the motherboard WHILE the power suply is plugged into the wall. Wait a few seconds and plug it back in. The blinking reen light on the motherboard should now be a solid green light. The PC should now power up.
If you turn on the computer and it will beep once and the red light blinks means the computer is starting will.. but if the computer beep once and the red light blinks once means there are something missing or something bothering the computer.. try this Check the connection cable of your computer, the power source, the hardware interface, and if you installed a new hardware, try taking that hardware out and turn on again the computer. if the problem still exist try to disassemble and assemble the hardware of the computer. You must have someone with you know how to assemble and disassemble the computer hardware for safety method TY.
I had the same exact problem for the same exact reason. Plug the power cable into the back. Open up the side of the case and unplug all the wires that the power supply plugs into. The motherboard, harddrive, cd & dvd drives, everything. wait about 10 minutes and plug them back in, plugging the BIG cable that connects to the motherboard back in LAST. This will make the light go from blinking to solid. I think it is a safety? to protect the motherboard from damage.
