Answers :

You may have a failed motherboard or a failing/failed power supply unit (PSU) then. Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything. The dead giveaway is the fact that you are not getting anything after the "splash" screen. There are a few companies that will repair broken capacitor issues. Also if you add a bunch of extra components (bigger video cards, more drives, etc) without upgrading the power supply you can suffer underpowered situations and that can cause internal parts to fail.
\015\012To eliminate some other stuff you could remove the memory and disconnect all the power plugs from the drives and then try to start it up. If it does not change the behavior at all (no beeps, no change in flashing lights or move past the e-machines display) then you probably have motherboard issues. If you have another PSU that has the same or greater output watts you can try replacing that first. Make sure when disconnecting the memory chips (sticks) that you touch the metal on the inside of the case first to discharge static electricity. If it does change the behavior add 1 component or item back at a time to see what you can find out. Post back with what you find. And remember a bad PSU does not mean no power, just not enough to run the computer. Let us know.

Emachine beeps Hey, we just got a new emachine and we have the same problem! We got it mid/end of April but were in the process of moving so it stayed in the box till about a week ago.
