LED lights are on? Fans spin? I suggest you have a bad Power Supply.

1) eMachines are noted to have low quality Power Supply's.
Saves eMachines money so they can sell budget computers.

2) A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure. I have, (Had actually), a shop half full of computers with this 'ailment'.

Some caused by the owners never cleaned out the inside of their computer, nor the inside of the Power Supply, with a can of compressed air for computers on a regular basis as needed.

3 to 5 years without cleaning the inside of their computer.
Mice could have made nests inside easily, with the 'Gunk' that was there. A bald eagle could have too. Rant off.

Others, caused by the computer manufacturer used a low quality Power Supply.
Low quality components used inside.
One of the major components that fails, is caused by a particular Electrolytic Capacitor that is used.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

3) Power Supply's used in PC's are a type of SMPS.
(Personal Computer. Statement holds true no matter what type of personal computer it is)

[ SMPS = Switched-Mode Power Supply
PSU = Power Supply Unit
All terms relate to a Power Supply used in a PC ]

A bad Power Supply will have a weak voltage power rail.
There are three major power rails used in the ATX form factor Power Supply, for an eMachines T6420 desktop computer.

A) The 3.3 Volt power rail (DC)
B) The 5 Volt power rail (DC)
C) The 12 Volt power rail (DC)

(Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

A Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail, may have enough power to light LED lights, and spin fans, (or spin a few times, ans stop), but won't have enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.
Depends on what Processor it is.

eMachines T6420?
Uses an AMD Athlon 64 3400+, processor.
(Socket 939)

[The motherboard used is an MSI ms-7207
Also known as K8NGM2-L ]

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T6420

This Processor can use Up To 89 Watts.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_amd_athlon_64_processors#.22Newcastle.22_.28CG.2C_130_nm.29

No Processor running, No computer.
No computer = No Video Signal

Suggest using a KNOWN to be Good, Compatible power supply, for a test unit, if available.

Should be the ATX form factor.

Approximately 6 inches Long, (15.24cm), 6 inches Wide, (15.24cm), and 3-1/2 inches Tall. (8.89cm)

250 Watts.
Correct amount of power cables, and the correct type.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

My emachine t1090 is making extremely loud whineing noises( like my bathroom fan when it is dirty). I took the casing off of the machine and cleaned it with compressed air, alos took casing off of the fan...


you have a ball bearing fan, after awhile, the fans ball bearing move around, thats were you are hearing the whining noises. All you have to do is replace the fan with the high piched sound.

My Emachine Fan Way to Loud


... this may be worth a try; it worked for my noisy emachine fan.
First open the box and vacuum out any dust on the fan. I also opened my power supply and did the same; there was quite a bit of dust, so you can imagine the heat never got the chance to be removed. Also, on my machine, underneath the CPU fan, there's a metal baffle; get the dust out of this as well ... same problem re. removing the heat. Last... and I'm not sure this matters or is true, but, for my fan, the power supply plug on the motherboard seemed to accept the plug oriented 180 degrees different from the way it was plugged in from the factory ... could this change the direction the fan blows? It certainly explains the bizarre build-up of dust in my CPU baffle. Once I did this, the fan goes up to 100 percent for about 3 seconds on boot, then it has never 'noised-up' like it used to! ... it's totally quiet now and the computer works great...
good luck

Emachine xp 2000


An overheated video card will do this when it is under high load, among other problems, like artifacts, lines, delayed and choppy video, etc. Cool your system somehow. Put a small fan by your PC.

Lost remote to ceiling fan


Go to any hardware store and buy a replacement kit. You'll have to take down the fan (turn off the power first) and remove the black remote box from inside the cup covering all the wiring. Replace that with the new black box that came with the new remote. Make sure that the remote control and black box pins are set the same and reinstall your fan. Total time, probably 30-45 minutes plus a trip to the hardware store. Level of difficulty, moderately easy. Cost, probably $15 min to $40 max. Anything above $40 and you may as well replace the fan altogether. Note: Before you remove the original black box, check the pin settings and set the new hand remote to those settings. Turn on the power and try to turn on the light with the remote control (don't turn the fan on unless you totally reinstalled it) - if it works, you may not need to replace the black box.
