    My son came home and said the power lights were blinking. He shut down the harddrive and haven't been able to start it since. Tried several power cables, thinking the cable went bad...still nothing. That's as much as I know.

    Can anyone offer advice or did it just die a lonely death?

    Power Supply is alway a good guess with this scenario. Is it completely dead?

    I definitely would start with a new Power Supply.

    In many cases, especially with eMachines, when the power supply fails it also takes out the motherboard.
