I decided to check out our old family computer, an emachine ET1331G-03w and when i went to plug it in to my monitor, it showed no signal. I changed the cord multiple times, changed from my monitor to my TV and still no signal. I've used this cord before so I know it works. Not sure what to do now
-The PC powers on with the LED light and the fans spin

Since this system has been sitting for a while, do the following;
1 System OFF and pw cord removed
2 Open the case and reseat ie remove and replace both the atx and aux pw connectors. Be sure they are fully seated
3 Remove ram and blow out slot or slots with a can of air. Replace ram and be sure the ram is fully seated
4 While the side cover is OFF, get a bright light and give the motherboard a VERY close inspection. See if you find and capacitors that look like the pics below

Now replace the pw cord and attempt to pw ON. If it still does not work, the first thing I would suspect is the pw supply. Emachines came with bestec pw supplies which are euphemistically known as very low quality ie junk.
