OK enough info to get started.
Now with the symptons you describe I am inclined to say you have one of three possible issues.
  • Bad motherboard
  • Bad CPU
  • Bad Power supply


Out of the above I am inclined to think it is the first or last one.
Below is the review of your system will is why I have indicated the above possible reasons.

The eMachines EL1200-05w is a Wal-Mart exclusive desktop that scrapes together a series of low-quality components in a cramped slim-tower chassis. Although it might look like a home theater PC at first glance, the interior reveals a barren landscape with very little room for expansion. This $298 desktop is one of the cheapest systems that eMachines offers, but we're dissatisfied with the outdated operating system and lackluster performance scores. We recommend saving $100 for a system that will allow you the freedom to multitask and run more robust applications.

How old is the system?
Is there any warranty still in affect for the system?
