At last think I have found the solution. Like many I have spent days trying to resolve the issue of this machine shutting down at any point it pleases. I have tried changing the power supply, cmos battry, hard drive. I have reseated the heatsink, flashed the Bios all to no avail. After searching numerous sites about the Emachine E4252 desktop, and reading the only thing that seemed to resolve this issue was actually replacing the whole motherboard. Well the reason for this is the built in graphic card which is a NVDIA Geforce 6100 nforce 405 is a faulty chip. Find a replacement PCI Express graphic card install it. Boot up the machine probably takes a million attempts but eventually got there, ensure the new card installs the driver, then disable the NVDIA Geforce 6100 nforce 405 and bingo - working unit :)

The issue lies with the faulty graphic card chip built into the motherboard - NVDIA Geforce 6100 nforce 405.

Install a compatible PCI Express graphic card, boot the machine up - ensure the driver is installed for the new card. Disable the NVDIA Geforce 6100 driver.

My issue was exactly has you describe. I also tried changing power unit, harddrive, cmos battry. Reseating the heatsink, flashing the BIOS nothing worked - then found out about batch of dodgy NVDIA Geforce 6100 chips. Changed the graphic card and bingo - PC working.
