Check the mouse settings in control panel. I believe there is a setting to disable the click noise.

Click the "Start" button, then choose "Control Panel," "Network and Internet" then finally "Setup a Bluetooth enabled device."

Power on the Bluetooth Hardware you want to connect to the computer. You must have some sort of hardware to connect to the computer, in order to enable the Bluetooth connection.

Click "Add" and the computer searches for any Bluetooth hardware in the area. Once it detects the hardware, select it and click "Next."

Type in the passkey for the Bluetooth hardware (found in the device's user manual) and click "Next."

Install any drivers now that came with the Bluetooth hardware. (Insert the driver installation CD that comes with the Bluetooth hardware, wait for the the installation wizard to load onto the screen, accept the license agreement, then click "Next" for the installation name and location and select "Install" to install the drivers.)
Choose "Locate and install driver software" if there are provided drivers. If not, click "Don't show this message again for this device" and click "OK."

hope this helps

if you rebooted your computer and all the connections and volume settings are right, no mute set. You can check your operating system by using the following link.
http://support.microsoft.com/mats/no_sound

You can also check the speaker on other computers or sound devices to see whether they are working properly.

Sometimes the sound card connection is not connected properly, you can open the box and replug it and press it tight towards the slot on the mother board. If you have a spare sound card, you can check whether the sound card is working by replacing it. If you are playing CD from your CDROM, the cable connection from your CDROM for sound playback to the mother board may not connect properly, you can check to see that two wires are actually connected.

Perform a clean boot if possible to see whether there are software conflicts for the sound. Also you can use the sound card embeded on *********** board to see whether they are working so there might be some configuration issue in BIOS or configuration issue.

You didn't mention up to where is the display. There are cases that this is cause by corrupted operating system (reistall OS) and defective memory modules. You can remove your memory module and reinstall again (one at a time if you have more than one module).
Good luck

Open cpu cabinet then you can motherboard pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 seconds then put it back reconnect RAM memory reconnect both connection to harddrive .Make sure motherboard is not ground with cabinet. Then check. Also when you power up the computer press F8 key 5 to 6 times then if you are able to see safe mode and other menu enter in "Enable vga mode" then go to display property and change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Pulled the wires off of just the Power On switch? http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html

(Goes inside the Power On button)

Or did you pull ALL the wires off of the Front Panel? (Also known as Front Bezel)

The eMachines W2686 uses a NexGen computer case.

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/ecase/support/ecase_identification.shtml

Is this NexGen Front Bezel like yours?

Any PC that uses a motherboard with onboard video will either have a BIOS setting to disable the onboard video or it will automatically be disabled when you insert an external video card (AGP or ePCI).

Hmm, well that probably isn't correct. If it would need a new fuse it would probably need a new power supply.

Remove hard drive, find out make and model of hard drive. Go to hard drive manufacturer's website and download testing software (if you have another computer with internet access). Should be a bootable ISO file. Burn the boot cd and run it on the host computer after reinstalling the hard drive. Sounds like a bad hard drive in my opinion.
