Having problems with your E-Machines T1742 PC Desktop ?

My son's Emachines T1742 Desktop was left on overnight and when try wake it from sleep mode but it was completely turned off, tried starting it up and I only get a nonstop blinking of the orange and green light. Won't turn off unless i unplug it. What could it be?

Answers :

Well maybe a power surge happened last night.

Is the computer plugged into a power protector? If not maybe something got fried.

Check for the smell of burnt components. It smells like burning plastic kind of. If everything looks fine make sure everything is plugged in tightly like the power cord and hard drives etc.

Hope this helped.
