My emachine T-1440 Desktop will not boot on. I unplugged it for a week while on vacation with no previous problems until coming back from vacation and replugging it. No reboot disc available. What are my options?
There is a battery inside the pc, remove it and replace it with a new one. Leaving it unplugged for that long taxes the battery too much. This should help and also plug everything in and reset the power switch on the back.

if you have a recovery option you can try that. that option allows you to reload the previously known good start up operating system before you added any new updates. you should have an option to choose a previous date.
Luckily, eMachine uses a generic system board. You can purchase a case from any computer store. The only thing to watch for is the plate in the rear of the motherboard, make sure it matches your ports. Again I believe you can use the one from your eMachine.
Unless you have data on your HD you really want, i would chalk this up to a loss. If you cant boot up, and you cant get into setting while booting up then you probably need to take it somewhere. Being as its so old, i would consider a new PC. There cheap enough now that a few hundred dollars gets you a nice new one, and i would steer clear of E-machines if you can, there very problematic machines.
The power supply is probably faulty. You'll need to replace it, and go from there. Keep in mind to make sure you UNPLUG everything and let it drain for at least a full minute before you touch it..unless you want the shock of your life.
