I have a e machine xp machine that has all of a sudden kind of stopped working. I can hear it start up when I press the power and the fans start up but thats all that happens. The screen stays blank and fans sound really loud like when it used to load, but then the fans would settle down, now they dont; they just keep running and running really loud. I know its not the monitor, because I have it hooked to another pc now and its working fine. Also the xp has on board video, I am thinking its the motherboard but I wanted to see if any one else has had this problem, and how they fixed it. :)

I had the same problem with an Emachine. The motherboard for my computer was no longer produced so
the the most cost effective option for me was to buy another computer and add my old hard drive to it.

can you get into the bios...tap the delete key once per second as soon as you turn the power on
can you get into safe mode...tap the F8 key once per second as soon as you turn the power on..
if you can't do either of these...try a different power supply...

Catch-all eMachines solutions:

Buy yourself a new power supply and a new motherboard. I reckon your machine is about three years old and your power supply has cooked the main board.

Ya it is about three years old I did put in a naother mother board just a a cheapy off of newegg seems to be fine now. The power source is 300 watt, but i have been thinking of getting a new power source for it and some new fans to help keep it all cooler in side the case. I also found memory module fans for only 99 cent its on sale on www.ewiz.com if any one wants to check them out too. They got a lot of good reviews. :)
