    To find a slolution for a problem you always need go through few questions. If there is no sign of live at all the problem can be related to a power supply. It can be foulty or not powerfull enough (the power can benot sufficient when you add new extansion card or a drive).

Try this, go to control panel, select Power Options, make sure the section that says "When I press the power button" it says shut down the computer.
You may also want to check in the BIOS where it says what do you want to do when you press the power button, you want both to say to shut off the PC.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck and have a pleasent day.

I am unable to start up my emachine em250 netbook.


The most common problem occurs when there is an incompatible device installed or a device that interferes the boot up of Windows.
If you have recently installed a new device in your computer please remove it and also remember to remove all of the USBs attached to the computer. Basically nothing except the Power source should be connected while you are booting up your computer. You can install the USB devices once your computer has loaded up.

When I shut down the computer, power is still opperating USB ports and front button light illuminated,.


In that case you aren't actually shutting it down, you are putting it in sleep mode.
In Start > Turn Off Computer window make sure you always click on the Turn Off button but if you're in Vista or 7 pressing Start > Power sends the pc to Sleep by default. To change that to normal behaviour - the Stop button actually stops the pc - follow this:
1 - Open Power Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Power Options. 
2 - Under the currently selected power plan, click Change plan settings.
3 - In the Edit Plan Settings dialog box, click Change advanced power settings.
4 - In the Power Options dialog box, click the plus sign (+) next to Power buttons and lid to expand the list.
6 - Click the plus sign (+) next to Start menu power button to expand the list; in the Setting list select Shutdown for the Power button. Click OK.

CD drive not working


Based on your indication the CD drive is clean, and you know the cables are attached to it, inside the computer. (Flat ribbon IDE interface cable, and 4-pin Molex connector power cable)

1.Go to Device Manager

Left-click on Start. Right-click on My Computer. Go down, and Left-click on Properties. Left-click on the Hardware tab. Go down, and Left-click on Device Manager.

Left-click on the + sign to the left of, DVD/CD-ROM drives.
Right-click right on the name of the CD drive.

(Example: Lite On DVDRW LH-20A1P.
eMachines Support indicates the T5212 has a DVD burner drive, and a CD drive. Right-click on the CD drive name))

In the drop down list, Left-click on Properties.
Left-click on the Driver tab
Go below, and Left-click on the Update Driver 'button'. Now go below, and Left-click on OK.

Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

Do Not Restart. We need a 'Hard Shut Down'.
Wait 1 minute, turn your computer on.

Still doesn't work?
Let's play hard ball.

2.Go back to Device Manager. Left-click on the + sign to the left of DVD/CD-ROM drives. Right-click on the name of the CD drive. Left-click on Properties. Left-click on the Driver tab.
This time go down, and Left-click on the Uninstall 'button'. Go below, and Left-click on OK

There will be a Microsoft 'squawk box' that comes up. "Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
Left-click on OK. (It IS okay!)

Close all windows. Shut down your computer normally. (Again, we need a 'Hard Shut Down'. To Restart a computer is known as a 'Soft Shut Down')

Wait 1 minute. Turn your computer on.
After Windows loads all the way, and all of your Start Menu programs have loaded, you should see a pop-up out of your system tray. (Bottom of Windows desktop screen)

"Found New Hardware", and perhaps another one, "Found XYZ CD drive". (XYZ = the CD drive name)

No still?

The driver for your CD drive, is located within the Windows XP operating system on your computer.
If your CD drive does not work now, I suggest it has failed.

Drives such as Optical drives, and Harddrives, are mechanical devices. Their 'Lifespan', is rated in so many hours of usage. Your CD drive may be at the end of it's 'Lifespan'.

What is 2.2 frame?
Do you mean .Net framwork 2.2 update from microsoft?
Press & hold the power on button on the E-Machine. That will shut down the PC. Unplug the power cord from the power supply. Wait a minute. Re-connect the power cord to you're PC & press the power button on you're PC. Windows should start & may run check disk before loading windows. Continue updating windows through windows update service. There are more
.Net framwork updates. If you're system continues to run restarting shut it down as before. This time when you start up the PC start pressing the F5 key every two seconds. Windows Advanced Option Menu will load. Choose Safe mode. Open control panel, open add/remove programs. At the top of the window & slightly to the right of the Add or Remove Programs windows is a box next to Show Updates. Left click in the box. Scroll down & find .Net framwork 2.2 & uninstall it. Close all opened windows & restart the PC.
Continue to update you're windows.

Please let me know if this has helped.
Good Luck!

Click start, right click my computer, click properties, click hardware, click device manager, open network adapters by clicking the + right click the network card and click uninstall. Reboot the machine and windows should find the card and reinstall on it's own but you should try to have the cd that came with the card or download the driver from a differant computer before you start in case windows cannot load the driver and you can browse to the file to load the drivers.

Want shut down


Click Start, then turn off computer, and make sure that your computer is not set to standby or hibernate. This works if you are running Windows XP or Windows 2000. Hope this helps!
