Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Not fully turning on

\015 I was on my e-machine computer last night, and out of no where it just turned off. After a while it powered back on, but only the little light on the computer and the fan would turn on, nothing else.\015\012Does anyone know what's wrong? or what i can do to fix it?\015

Answers :

Something "blew-up". Most likely:
\015\0121. power-supply is toast -- it must provide several different voltage-levels (5.5V, 12V) but it no longer is doing so. Thus, while the fans get power to spin, the motherboard is not getting the correct power.
\015\0122. CPU has overheated (the fan on the top of the CPU could have failed) and had a "melt-down". Turn the computer off, remove the power-cable, take the side-cover off, and see if that fan spins easily by hand, or if it is seized-up.
\015\0123. One of the capacitors (those black cylinders with silver-tops) on the motherboard has "blown". Open the case, and look for one capacitor that looks different from the rest (bulging on side, or bulging on the top, or brown "rust" leaking-out from the top).
\015\012Take it to a qualified technician.
\015\012The "good news" is that your data-files on your hard-drive probably are 100% OK. Your hard-drive can be extracted, temporarily connected to another computer, and files can be copied from your hard-drive.
