I moved my computer (an eMachines, not yet six years old) from one room to the other this morning (long story), and when I went to turn on the CPU, it wouldn't. It was working fine up through yesterday evening, no sign of any trouble at all. (This includes a total absence of any of the kind of grindy or whirry noises that suggest a fan going bad.) The monitor, together with a lamp and a small calculator, are plugged into the same power strip that I used for the CPU; all turn on. The tiny green light on the back of the CPU blinks on very quickly when I first stick the prongs of the plug into the strip, then blacks out again. I tried it in another socket and the same thing happens. I have a suspicion it's the power source that has died, but can anyone tell from this whether I'm right? And if I am, what can I do about it?
95% of the time when they do that the power supply is gone could be a weak component in it.but unless you are a technician i would just replace it with the same type or same wattage this can be located on the sticker on the Power supply unit...

Usually when you hear long beeps coming from your computer it telling you that there is hardware loose . You may have knocked something loose. Check cd roms , ports and cards , memory to make sure they are fitted in correctly . good luck
You may need to check to make sure Windows XP was installed properly, if the computer had crashed, you can do a repair, I am a computer technician, and I can tell you, that replacing the power supply will not do that.
Possible solution If this is an i/o problem then i would suggest that you clean the computer out. Go to the computer store and buy yourself one or two cans of compressed air. When you get them you are going to want to shut down your computer and disconnect the power from everything since the next step involves opening the computer case up. Remove the screws on thew back of the unit that hold the cover on, you will be able to see which screws do what. Open the cover up and take a look, the cpu cooler plugged with dust etc. Take the air can and styart blowing the dust and dirt out of the computer, also make sure that you clean out the poiwer supply as well. This will be the place where the plugin connects to the computer. There are fans and other things in the computer as well that you should blow out. If this problem is i/o this may just fix it for you. Hope this helps
Is your hard-drive out of room? Perhaps there is no room for your computer *to* install whatever it is. In your computer there should be a defragmentation option to make more room. Otherwise I'd recommend A: a seprate storage device or server to place everything in. B: A new computer. C: and if all else fails, I'd just try deleting useless software and old files you won't need.
You said, Amana Air Command 80, 20 years old. Electronic ignition. Furnace does not start. Good power to furnace. Thermostat properly set. Where do I start looking?
Sounds like you possibly have one or more bad jets if the unit is a gas furnace! Let me know how it goes. Huuum
WOW, listen to this story! I understand you are looking for the solution to fix your furnace your self. But I want to tell you my story about my smart wife and our furnace. When we moved into this house the furnace was 20 years old and she suggested that we put a new one that it will save us money. I laughed at her and replied if it's not broken why fix it! Six years later it finally broke down and I replaced the whole furnace and central air unit with a new one. Our utility bill went down $100 dollars a month! That's $7200. that I lost over 6 years due to not respecting my wife's power of reasoning! If you can afford it or can get financing replace any unit 20 years old and it will pay for it self. Can you imaging $1200. a year for 20 years is $24,000 dollars I'm saving with a new and efficient unit. Do the math!!!!!!!!!
Thank You, Huuum, Hope I gave you some good fatherly advice. Please remember to leave a rating
Same thing is happening with my emchine as well. Mine is a T6412 series machine. I boought this machine a year and a half ago. Suddenly one morning the monitor started flickering. At first I thought may be some problem with the cables. I tried with different cables. Same problem. then I thought maybe my monitor has gone bad. So I went and bought a new Samsung monitor. Even with this new monitor the problem remained. So, I am assumng now that the problem is with my computer and not the monitor. Can someone please help. I do not usually come to this site. Can you please email me your solutions and help directly to [email protected]. Thank you so much for your help.
