Emachines e4026 non-responsive

\015 After purchasing a 500gb hard drive and 2gig kit for upgrade on my e4026, i formatted my secondry drive and installed all emachines drivers and operating system, this worked fine and all was well, i then powered down and installed my new 500gb drive as the secondry, after doing this, while the machine was still open i thought it a good idea to remove the cpu fan and heatsynk and give it a good clean as it had alot of dirt inside, after doing so i replaced everything and powered up but to find that the blue power light on the front of the model is the only thing that works!!!, the fans kick into life for a split second but then die and absolutely nothing else happens!!! i have since taken off the fan and heatsynk and cleaned off all existing paste with isopropyl alchol and reapplied new thermal paste thinking that it could be that the cpu had overheated and just shut down, this still has not worked, can you please advise? please, please, please!!!\015

Answers :

I don't think it's an overheating CPU. It would stay on for a bit longer if it was that.\015\012\015\012My best guess is a power supply issue. Either your power supply is bad, or more likely something is pulling too much power from it. Emachines are notorious for using the bare minimum hardware... possibly the extra hard drive is pulling more juice than the power supply can handle, so it shuts down. Try disconnecting power to the new hard drive and see if the machine comes up. If it does, you need a new, higher wattage power supply.
