Emachine 180 Thanks for that. There are no sounds/bleeps coming from the machine. The power supply was plugged into a surge protector but its also been tried without. Still no joy :O(

No sounds or beeps rules out the hard drive, at this point it's either the power supply, motherboard, or cpu. Have you tried the power supply in a different machine? Also, eyeball the motherboard, specifically the capacitors, look for any that have bulges on the top.

Had power surge. Tv was on surge protector. Now no power will come on and just makes a buzzing sound.


Have you tried plugging it in without the surge protector? I would wager that either a) the surge protector needs to be reset/turned on and off depending on the model or b) either your TV and/or surge protector have been damaged by the power surge.

Try plugging the TV straight into the outlet and see if that helps.

I suspect you have a loose power plug inside on the circuitboard. Take it to the dealership. Or risk static shock to the circuitboard by not grounding yourself when taking the one screw out the back, popping off the board and checking the plugs.

My desktop dont come on


1) Check THE receptacle in the surge protector the computer is plugged into.

I have found more than once that One bad receptacle in the surge protector is bad.

"Hmmm, surge protector power on light is lit." "Monitor has power, amp for the speakers has power, and the router has power."
All plugged in to the same surge protector.

Tried a table lamp into the receptacle the computer was plugged into, Nothing.
Replace surge protector.

2) Bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.

If you bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and the Power Supply comes on, the problem is a bad Power On switch.

If you bypass the Soft Power On of the Power Supply, and the Power Supply does Not come on, the problem is the Power Supply.

If you wish to know how to perform this simple test, just state so in a Comment.

It sounds like a power supply failure. Do you plug it straight into the walll or into a surge protector. If you are close to a best buy, go to geek squad they will diagnose the issue for free but the fix is real simple. Let's just put it this way there are a few things that protect the motherboard from getting fried. If it is the PSU u are looking at roughly 40-60 dollars and it is a matter of 6 connections.

Power issue


Sounds like your power supply may be shot on your computer. You can get a power supply tester and check it. Not sure what to do about the printer. If you had a surge protector in between your computer and ac. Plug the computer and printer back in to the AC outlet directly and see if that helps. Hopefully only your surge protector is damaged.

Please rate, Thanks.

Emachine 180 (bought 2004)


I have this type of computer (just sitting around , not for my main computer) and I had a smilar problem. I took it to a guy I know (who owns a computer repiar shop) an he said the motherboards on this model go haywire about four years after initial power-up. On mine, it caused the power supply to blow-up (literally) and blew out most components. (Floppy drive, Sound card, USB ports, Keyboar/mouse plugs)

I really don't know if What he said is true, but I replaced the power supply, and now it works fine.

Emachine with XP home edition doesn't start


Hi hearalso, down to the basic's. Replace power cord.
No help there than, remove the case's side panel to expose the motherboard. (Normally it is the left side panel while facing the front of the PC.)
Look closely for a small (green in color) led light. The power cord must be connected to the PC & connected to you're power strip but do not press the power on button on the PC.
The green led tell's you the board is receiving 5volts. Check all connections. Un-plug & reconnect every data & power connector in your PC. (Double check). There is a fuse inside your power supply that may have blown. Check you're manual page, Approva Statements B-1. Fuse Warning Instruction Caution.
Check fuse in power supply. (Unplug power cord before opening).
If you can not power up the PC after all of the above than if possible, swap out the power supply.
Replacing the power supply is the last step.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask.
Good Luck!

Emachines shuts down by itself all the time


There are a lot of problems with Emachines as far as motherboards go. Since you've already replaced the power supply, it's safe to say that it's not causing your issue.

Since you seem comfortable with the inside of your machine, go ahead and take out all unnecessary components. If you've left your machine the way it was since you've bought it, start with the modem card that's in the bottom PCI slot. Often, those can cause issues with the computer not starting up, staying on, etc.

Also ensure that the machine is free of dust, and that all cables and connections are secure. Try not to let things float freely, and make sure you're plugging the machine into a surge protector, and not directly into the wall.
