Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Emachines , shutting off on it's own?

\015 My eMachines computer was shutting down on it's own after anywhere from 15 seconds to 3 minutes after turning it on. I replaced the fan tonight and it was doing great. It stayed on for over an hour. Then it shut off at 9:05. I turned it back on and it stayed on until 9:40. I turned it back on and it stayed on until 10:10. But this time it shut off and immediately restarted itself.What the heck is going on with this thing? Do you think it could be the power cord?Thanks for any help.\015

Answers :

While it is possible the power supply could be going bad, usually it would not work intermittently like this.

\015\012Most likely the motherboard is starting to go bad, I would do a quick visual inspection for any buldging or leaking capacitors, if you see any that is definatly what is causing the problem.
\015\012
\015\012If you dont see any damage to the motherboard you can try replacing the power supply, if it still behaves this way then your motherboard is the problem (sometimes there are no visible signs of damage on e-machine motherboards even when they have completly fried)
