Is it plugged in ?
Is the wall switch turned on ?
Is your power supply functional ?
If no lights or fans look at the power supply.
Oh Yes, a small switch near the power cord at the back of the computer, is it on ?
Do you have a reset switch, turn off all power and press the reset switch then try again ?
For some strange reason the reset function gets mucked up.
Like a bleeder resister or pullup resister is not doing its job.

Imed 1402 wont boot up


Your computer is not completely booting (it's failing the POST).
You need to identify the problem by disconnecting everything but the CPU, video, and memory. See if you get something displayed on the screen. If not, there is a good chance the problem is in the video card. Just to be sure, if you have 2 sticks of memory, take one out and try a boot. Then swap sticks.
The monitor is blinking yellow because it's not getting a video signal.

Computer turn on, but when it does it won't POST


It seems like a motherboard issue. It heats up, thus is not able to turn on continuously. You may need to check internal parts embeded on the motherboard llike the fan and processor before you could know what needs replacement.

On back of the computer is a on off switch for the power supply, or unplug the computer for one minute. Turn the switch back on, or plug the computer back in and try to turn it on.

But really something is happening to your computer so continue.

Continue this pulling out pci cards one at a time until you find out what the problem might be.
Try different keyboards and mice too.

Red light flashing on power button


Sounds like the hard drive has had a failure, you need to get a replacement one, and reinstall it, along with the opperating system, and any other programs that were on the old one.

Flashing green light


Could be a power Supply fail. It is well known in the trade that Emachine power supplies are very poor. A new power supply is easy to fit and cheap.
