Hello and thanks for the welcome. The answer to the warranty is no , unfortunately in is no longer under it ( expired 3 months ago...go figure!). On the front of my computer I have 4 slots to place a SD , memory stick, and 2 different memory cards that I am not sure are, but they each have lights that indicate if a card is in a partictular slot. On my very old PC I did have a small reset button but on this one there is none. I am positive that I installed the power supply correctly, I pulled one cable and replaced it with the new one before moving on to the next one. The CPU fan works great as does the power supply fan. I do not see any lights on the motherboard that are on. I also noticed that in addition to the SD card slot light , my caps lock , number lock , and scroll lock lights on the keyboard are very faint and flash about 2 times per second when I turn the power on. Another thing is when I turn the power on it really looks like it wants to go on and I even see the amber light go on for the hard drive. I really appreciate you trying to help, I will not be able to get back to a PC until tuesday or wednesday, so I will also try to contact Emachines tech support again but I am not sure I trust their judgement and I would rather take advise from you all ! I also wanted to say that I am more concerned with getting files off my hard drive and just buying a new computer if needed. I have heard that Emachines are not the best computers to get anyway. Thanks again.
