Typically, the "white" is the "1" pin. The Power SW is the on/off. iT is what is called a momentary (when you hold it, the circuit happens) when you release, its over with. You need to simply, put the wire on there; and try the power button. If the computer turns on, great! If not, turn it around the other way.

Computer starts then shuts down

Most of the reasons for automatically shutdown are lack of cleaning or cooling. Clean your computer and put one (1) drop of thermal paste on the cpu core. Also your system files are corrupted or infected by viruses.

Does emachines have a parallel hookup for a printer

The eMachines W3507 uses an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard.

Yes it does. It's a DB-25 parallel port.

Look at the I/O area on the back of the desktop computer.
The Green PS/2 port is for the Mouse. To the right of it is a parallelogram shaped port.
Pink in color, 13 pins across the top, 12 pins across the bottom.

DB-25 parallel port example, (Not pink in color)

Emachine w3507 blue light only comes on fan runs nonstop, no signal or monitor, pressing the f8 did nothing

If you get nothing but a blue light and no video at all it sounds like you have a bad power supply. They are easy enough to check and replace but not for a first timer. If you know someone who knows more; get a volt meter and put it on the DC scale. Unplug a power plug to a drive or find one that is not used. Measure the Yellow to black and then the red to black wires. You should get 12 & 5 volts respectively.

Emachines w3507 DVD Rom Broken

There may be a hole but it will be under the lip of the door, kind of impossible to get to. You may have to remove the drive from the emachine and unscrew it and open it manually with a small screwdriver. I regularly buy and repair or use parts from used samsung drives which is what emachines uses almost exclusively. The only upside to this is that once open, you can swap the faceplates and doors onto newer drives. If the led light is not in the middle then you can swap out the little plug in circuit too.
