Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

The machine starts and stops in about 2 seconds


Answers :

This could be an indication of a bad power supply. I would suspect that first.
If you wish to try something else, open the case and disconnect all devices but the CPU and memory (you can leave the video connected, also). If it starts up and keeps on running, then the problem is one of your devices. Also, after this, you could consider that memory might be bad.
