I had an emachine that just one day died. When I tried to turn it on the fan would spin then stop, then finally it would do anything at all. I replaced the power supply but its still dead. Any suggestions, I really like that computer

Not only has Emachines had alot of power supply problems, they also have about much problems with the motherboards.

If you are sure the power supply is the correct one, I would suspect a motherboard problem.

Post more details and we can help you decide what to do next.

Well the hibernate light on the motherboard is still on and the motherboard's intel and the CPU is celeron m. Could it be possible that the CPU burned out because I took the heat sink off once and didn't put on a new layer of glue and used the CPU. After consulting the manuals it said the the power switch was not placed in the right order and after puting them the right way it still didn't work

I doubt the cpu is defective / the cpu has thermal protections and happens to be the toughest component in the computer system / the only cpu's I have ever seen bad were held in the hands of wreckless overclockers and a few crazy power distribution problems!
