Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Had trouble booting the computer over time. Sometimes power light would come on and nothing else. By unplugging, waiting 15sec it would power up. Over time this stopped working. Eventually power light would come on but fan would not nor would drives. Switched power supply and same problem. Power light on, nothing else.

\015\012I've got an HP desktop with similar problems. It turned on one day just fine. The next day not. I don't even get the boot up screens. Disconnecting Hard Drive and CD/DVD components do not help. I should at least get some BIOS POST beeps and a Hard Drive Not Found or such. I do not. On occassion it will boot to a blank screen with white cursor in upper left. Most the time no screen at all. On rare occassion it comes right on and boots Windows. I guess it could be the power switch ... but I doubt that.

I own a hp pavilion slimline s3100n computer. Yesterday I turned it on and it kept freezing on me, so I did a system recovery and that helped nothing. Now when I turn it on the blue power light comes on indicating there is power going to it but nothing will boot up. Any assistance with this issue would be much appreciated. Also the yellow light that shows whether its loading is not lighting up.
