New power supply, replace as soon as possible, the current one is literally frying the board inside the computer. Replace the power supply now you may just about be able to prevent enough damage occurring before the board packs up altogether.

Mainboard is nearly dead. Replace it. Even a cheap budget board from Asrock or whoever will be better than the eMachines board.
