Emachines have had a lot of problems with their power supplies going bad and destroying the motherboard in the process. If you can, start looking for a replacement motherboard (on eBay) and a larger wattage power supply (any local computer store) especially if you have experienced the computer shutting off or rebooting for no apparent reason. If you're lucky, you can try booting into safe mode by pressing the "F8" key on you keyboard during the boot process and select safe mode from the menu. If your computer boots up, then there exist the possibility of a corrupt video driver and/or corrupted file system. If you still can't boot and experience the same thing, then you may have a physical hdd problem or again, power supply, motherboard, or both. Also, do not over look the possibility of an internal fan on the video chip not turning. I hope this helps and good luck.

i think bios is not booting up....this problem may be solved by removing the power cable and battery from computer, wait for 3 minutes and put the battery back.... now turn on only with battery power.... if it got booted, it will ask you to configure the bios.... once you are done with that your computer will work as a normal one....
if it doesnt bootup, then take it to an authorized service center and check it out....

Toshiba Satellite L355D-S7901 will not bootup. Hard drive light, lights and just stays on.

pull the ram individually and see if that allows the computer to boot. If that does nothing then you would need a new motherboard.

Tomtom One 3rd Edition will show green light but will not turn on

If you have an SD card in then remove it and try to boot it up.

It is possible that the SD card is corrupt or faulty.

If it does not power up with no SD card then it may well need to go in for repair.

Should you get it to boot without the SD card then back it up straight away.

Reformat your card (preferably in a card reader) and then restore to the card . You should then be able to put the card back in

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Wireless Function Light Will Not Allow Computer To Boot

My guess is that you may have gotten a serious virus. Try running your Antivirus aoftware and, if a virus is detected, use your Antivirus software to clean it. If not, then you can either try a System Restore; or backup your files and reformat the hard drive and reinstall a fresh new copy of your Windows Operating System.
