You need to install the video driver for your computer- Usually there is a disk with drivers, however you can go to the Emachines support site- http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html and download your drivers
No your wallet can stay shut.First you need to identify your graphics or video device.
Go to control panel,personalization,display,advanced.your graphics device or video card should be listed there.
Write down the manufacturer.Go to there websight and find your device usually at the support section.
Download and save file in my documents,once done open file and install to pc.
E machine also has a update utility at there websight youll need the model and serial # of your pc to use it.This will update all devices on yur pc.
Emachines used to use a poor quality power supply made by Bestec, I believe the quality is supposed to have improved in the last few years but inconsidering the number of dead Emachines that wind up in my workshop I doubt it.
The problem you have is that being a poor quality power supply there is a very high risk that it damaged the motherboard when it went out.
If you can borrow a power supply just to test with all the beter BUT be carefull some Emachines are proprietary and the main motherboard plug is not always wired in the standard way.
Check here for a replacement power supply if you can prove your motherboard to be OK. http://www.affordablesurplus.com/
Have a look on this site for examples of standard and proprietary power supply wiring colours. http://pinouts.ru/pin_Power.shtml
Sounds like a bad video adapter. I'm assuming your emachines has an integrated video adapter. Put in a video card (with the power plug pulled out! Touch the bare metal frame of the computer with your hand before inserting the video card into the agp or pci slot Don't touch the motherboard). If you get video, you may or may not need to install drivers after that. XP has a lot of video drivers, but lacks quite a few of them, too.
