    The eMachines power supply (and possibly the motherboard) is bad. Just because you have a green light, doesn't mean that the power supply or motherboard is good. It takes many separate voltages to operate a computer. The geen LED means only that you have +5volts to the motherboard

    I recently went to put new RAM in a friends emachines PC, which resluted in everything whizzing but no signal to the monitor, whether its a RAM thing or the graphics integrated connection I don't know but I do know I wouldn't buy or tinker with one now. This machine is a similar one by the sound of it. Motherboards are very cheap on ebay in the UK, even board ram and pcu bundles.
