    I hava an emachine w4620 laptop with xp that died a few months ago.
    manufactured by arima about 3 or 4 years old.

    I went to do a reboot,when it powered back on, had high speed fan and an error.I dont remember the error but it seems like it was asking for a file location as if going to install from a floppy or something.
    the top half of the screen was blue with the text-- and the bottom of the screen remained blank.

    i tried to wait out the error but nothing happened so i held down on the power button and nothing happened.I still had high speed fan and th error message and couldnt shut down machine.

    After about 5 minutes I unpluged the brick and then took out the battery.

    Pluged it back in,I got my status lights on for hard drive radio etc on 5 seconds as usual
    when i hit the power nothing happens,absolutely nothing

    I have put in differant known good ram
    Took out the coin cell battery for about 20 minutes ,put back in
    checked my brick it is good
    checked every ribbon i can all wires etc.

    i have a green led light on bottom of lcd panel that comes on whenever the power brick is pluged into the wall and the pc.
    It no longer lights,but the status lights will come on with the brick or battery is plugged in.

    I dont get any beeps- no fans- no screen--nothing
    just the status lights for 5 seconds when first plugging in the machine.

    I hate to say this but Emachines systems are not known for thier longevity. And yes that goes for the laptops marketed by them as well. Have you tried running it on just the charger with out the battery installed? 3 or 4 years is a good amount of time on an Emachines computer. Also removing the battery while the computer was still on may have also caused damage to the system
