Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
It's hard to troubleshoot a power supply. They are very dangerous and contain electricity for some time after turned off. If your new one isn't solving your problem it makes me think it's not the power supply unless it's not powerful enough. Try this:
Open your case having your "CPU & HEATSINK" in sight. You can lay your case on its side if its easier to see this. Power up watching only the cpu fan located on or in the attached device over your processor (cpu). If it doesn't turn then that is likely your problem. CPU is overheating which automatically shuts down system. Pls. make sure both 20-24 pin and 4 pin plugs from power supply are tightly plugged in mother board before you start.
If it is working try another power outlet in your house. Sounds odd but is a known issue.
Could be a few more things but these are most common.
Let me know pls. your results.
