    eMachines computer power supply part numbers to the appropriate replacement or upgrade. It is a PS failure. Maybe the mother board fail at the same time. While the hard drive, cpu, cpu fan, memory module and power supply remain good on most of them.

    I had the same problem. This is a serious issue involving thousands of machines. It is the motherboard that fails, due to having some bad capacitors. Many models of eMachines computers use standard ATX or ATX-12V (Pentium 4) power supplies.

    I had a similar problem with my eMachine T4080, it turned out to be the power button itself that was at fault. The problem occurs after the 1 year warrant expires, and sometimes the eMachine will make it to years. In some models the failure rate must be above 50 percent. I took it to the shop, they replaced it for an exorbitant amount of money, cautioned me to press the button V-E-R-Y G-E-N-T-L-Y from now on (apparently this is a known problem with these machines) and it's worked fine for over a year now with no recurrence of the problem.
