    This sounds like a bad power Supply. The "loud noise" you claim the CPU is making is actually the CPU fan running wild. This tells you that the 12 volts is still present in the PSU, but nothing more. There are other voltages that have to be present for the board and CPU to function, if they're not available, then a blank screen is usually the result.The power supply should be substituted for a know good unit, you really can't get a fix on the problem until this is done anyway.

    Emachine computers have trouble with bad motherboards, by judging by the number, yours is a fairly new one, so that probably isn't a factor here.

    Grow a pair, flirt with destiny, court disaster, get thee to a Best Buy and plunk down some cash for the crappiest Emachine you can find. Uncertainty is the path to true happiness, my son!:;):p:haha:

    Come to the dark side?


    Hey, my hand!

    Naw, I'm running this T3958 into the ground. Eventually I'll switch out all her guts, and she'll become better-stronger-faster! I can rebuild her!

    Wow, I watch alot of crappy movies.

    That's not the scary part, It's the way you retain them in fragments, them recycle them. Now that's scary!

    Although, technically "Bionic Woman" was a TV series, not an actual movie. This could I suppose, be confused with even more clever adaptive skills, as it draws upon a wider scope of source materials.:rolleyes:
