Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

I have a emachine W4885 desktop that won't bootup.

\015 When I push the power button it sounds similar to a car that's trying to start but never turns over. This has been happening for serveral months now, usually after 50 -100 unplugging / plugging the power cord it starts but this time I'm over the 100 mark and its still now up. I'm trying to get back to the good ole' days of pushing the power button once!\015\012\015\012Thanks for your help...I got to get my taxes done.\015

Answers :

First unplug it and remove the case (usually two screws on the back) then plug it back in and start it while looking inside. Are any fans moving? are they clean and free of dirt?
\015\012If no fans are moving, i would presume it to be a weak power supply which can be replaced for about 35 bucks and installed fairly easily.
\015\012If the fans are running but incredibly dirty they will not protect things and could , if they haven't already damage the motherboard, power supply, etc.
\015\012Check the power supply first as these commonly get weak or go out, then post again here..
