Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Blinking on and off

\015 My emachine t2042 is hooked up right but, when i out the power cable in it the computer and keyboard blink on and off. It also makes this annoying sound and the cpu fan doesnt rotate. Can someone help me with this?\015

Answers :

No offense, Tyson, but would you mind explaining your question a bit better? You wrote "when i out the power cable in it"and that really confuses me. Did you unplug the power cable or did you plug it in?

Also, how long ago did this happen? Was there anything you can think of that may have caused this problem?

If the CPU fan is not rotating, you may have a problem with your power supply.

I am guessing your system is powering on, but not showing anything on the monitor.

Try removing every thing from the computer, starting with the power cable. Then add back only the monitor and turn it back on. If it works, one of the items you left unplugged is causing a problem.

If that does not work, again remove the power cable and open the case. Remove all expansion cards other than video, disconnect all of the drive power and data cables (CD, DVD, hard drive, etc.) then plug in only power and monitor to see if you get anything.

If still no go, unplug power cable, carefully remove the RAM and put it exactly back where it came from. At this point, if you still get nothing you are down to 4 components:
motherboard
power supply
CPU
video card

If the CPU fan is still not spinning, I would suspect it is the motherboard or power supply. Get a can of air and blow out the CPU fan to make sure it rotates easily.

Let me know if you need more help.
