One thing I may have not mentioned earlier (may not matter but I want to make sure we have all the details here), when I plug it in and the fan comes on and turns off I have to unplug and replug in order for the fan to turn on again.
Yes you mentioned that before I think that - this is an Anomaly associated with this Brand/make of PC The Original Power Supply did not have a [Main Power ON/OFF Switch] The Motherboard has a [Circuit that uses Standby Power to control PC Turn ON Then it needs a [Hard Reset] By Unplugging AC Cord to reset this circuit [??] after a [Failure Induced Shutdown] [??]
Maybe you should ask [Grandmother] or look at PC Manual What is proper way to Turn this PC [ON] & [OFF] and Failure recovery info Never know [Grandmothers know a lot more than you think]
I need to do some research on this maybe [Computerwiz] can answer these questions on this before we Declare the [Motherboard] Dead [??] He mentioned that he has this brand of PC that had same problem
I had to replace my own Emachine's power supply, it was only 3 years old! And someone else I know had to do the same thing. I wouldn't be surprised if that is the same problem with your grandmother's computer.

There was another person I knew whose e-machine computer's power supply went out too, but they did not replace it immediately. When I looked at it, the power supply started crackling when the computer was turned on. Replacing the power supply did not fix it. I believe that because they waited too long, the power supply actually became dangerous and fried some of the internal parts.
I suspect it is the same with your computer. Replacing the motherboard may fix it, but who knows how much got fried...
Let me know what you want to do.

>>>I am having a very similar problem. I am working on a Emachine T2895 and I have tried a new and old power supply >>>and get the same results. Once I plug in the power cable to the power supply the supply continues to run alonfg with >>>the cpu fan and I have a solid amber light on the front panel of the box. The power button lights up green but it will not >>>shut down or do nothing when pushed..
>>>Any ideas???? Thanks
- I am also seeing the exact same symptoms (and Yes, it is an Emachines T2895) I have replaced the power supply, but nothing changed. The only way to 'power up' is with the O I switch on the Power supply. This still does not get the machine to boot up. Any help (other than the radiator cap solution - drive a new car under the old radiator cap to fix a problem car) would greatly be approciated.
