I had my computer shut off all night and plugged into a surge protector. The power went out a few times over the night. First its an Emachines T2615, AMD processor, Nvidia Graphics card, windows XP and when i woke up the power light on the front of it was on, but the computer was not on. Also all 3 lights on the keyboard were light up and flashing. Neither of those are normal. I tried turing it on and the monitor just said check signal monitor is ok. I tried unplugging it, using different plugs, everything. The computer sounds like it starts up fine but nothing happens. I tried it without the nvidia card, using the built in one and same deal. I took out the hard drive and tried to boot, same thing. No BIOS or anything. Any idea what this could be? I need help asap. Thanks a lot.

Can you substitute a PSU, that would be the first thing to try. E-machines tend to be a little weak in the power department anyway. If that doesn't do it, remove everything but the hard drive and video adapter and see if it boots. If you have another graphics card, of any kind, try subbing that next. It should at least give you the default video.
