Most likely a bad psu (power supply) but it could also be a case switch or motherboard.
Do you know what psu is in it?
If this is a brand computer like dell,compaq or other please list the name and model.
If its a custom build please list its full specs.

The reason why I ask for this is because at this point the easiest thing would be to try another psu in it but if its a brand computer thats not always easy, but there is a test we can try if you are comfortable with taking parts out of the computer

Glad you mentioned its a emachine they are notorious for bad psu's and motherboards, I see so many of them on various forums and some in the shop.

Since you replaces the psu I'll bet the motherboard is bad,sorry
