My emachine T6528 desktop PC will not boot up. It was bought around 2005. It worked fine up until the past 2 or 3 weeks. The first problem I was having was with the monitor. The flat screen it came with lost the red coloring in it, and the colors would flicker periodically. That wasn't really a big deal. I changed monitors and the flickering stopped, but still the red was completely gone from the screen showing black instead. That's not really a big concern for me. My problem now is the PC will not boot up. We had it plugged in and turned on connected to a surge protector. We had to unplug it to move some furniture that the wires were getting in the way of. Instead of shutting it down, my girlfriend just turned the power button off on the surge protector. Since then, when we try to boot it up, all we hear is the fan running. The blue light on the front is turned on. But nothing comes on any monitor we've hooked up to it. No light on the mouse or keyboards comes on either. Our primary concern is keeping the pictures and music that are saved on the hard drive but we would really like to salvage this computer if possible. This doesn't sound like anything that can be fixed over a discussion board, but what would be the best way to go about getting this taken care of? Any idea if this sounds typical, how much it would cost to get taken care of? Thanks for your help.
