I am having some problems with my emachine because it won't turn on. My father and I have both tried fixing thing. Both of us do not have much experience with fixing computers but we wanted to getthis fixed as cheaply as possible. Anyway, like many have mentioned before, it was thought that the PSU was burnt out so that was changed but it still won't come on! Also, I have another computer, an older Compaq so Itried to see if I could still atthe least keep the hard drive but the drive brings up the "disk read error" when connected. The Compaq is REALLY old and only had 7GB for memory space while the emachine has about 40GB. The original Compaq HD still works but I was wondering if there was a way I can get the emachine to work again andfix my hard drive. I thought HDs were replaceable and it seemsto fit in the Compaq but still won't work. I really don't have any experience and I also haven't tried to renew my motherboard yet but I fear something may also be wrong with the HD. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas? Thanks!
