Im having the same problem with mines, so im on my laptop now. I've done some research and it turns out that eMachines has a habbit of blowing out their motherboards, and that its being caused by the design of the case for which the board sits on. So right now im debating to replace my motherboard or not. Overall I think its best to just get a new computer as the board will go out again in less than a year.
Also try replacing the power supply and the video card if you can. If switching them out doesn't work then its your motherboard :-(

Whenyou plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, wherethe plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?
When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted,but the screen is not showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).
Maybe you have a Static ChargeBuildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit thepower button to see if it boots. Maybeyour memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Removethe Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set thechip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you knowthe memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and tryrebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put theother chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just toverify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the openmemory chip slot and try booting.
Give us more details on what happens when you hit the power button. Does it try to turn on? See any lights or hear any beeps? Hear any fans? If you really want help give details to get a solution.
Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the Memory Cover and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.
i can try to help you,
do you hear the boot beep sound?
if you are not able to hear the beep sound then i suggest you to open the machine and check with the cmos battery if it is working or no.
if your cmos battery is working then have a check with Power supply.
if the power supply working then there might be a problem with your motherboard or cpu.
now let me talk about checking the ram. if you are able to remove the ram module remove it and see if u can hear a long beep sound if you are able to hear it try to clean the ram contacts with eraser and then try installing it.
i think this might help you
try replacing your ram.if your ram is bad you wont get no picture on your monitor but your puter will start.2 if you have a video card turn off you puter for a few minutes and plug your monitor to your original display.
Yes, with that beeping sound that you're hearing from your hard drive is a sign of a bad hard drive , that's also the reason why the computer wont even boot because the hard drive is already bad, the best thing that you can do here is to get a new hard drive..
