Try the parts outside of the case, it's possible there's a short somewhere.

The board is dead, either the northbridge or south bridge is cooked, its a common problem with earlier Emachines, I've seen a ton of them come through the shop with same problem, the unit turns on and the HDD led stays on. It usually happens right out of manufacturers warranty too. Check for burn marks on the chipset if you are able. Its the cheap psu's they put in those things that usually causes it.

When you turn it on, are you still getting the leds to stay on at the front of the case?

yep, LEDs are on but unlike in the Emachines before the fan wasnt powering or the hard drives were moving, with this now the fans are moving and i can hear the hard drives powering up. the other motherboard was dead but this motherboard is fine but not working.

Are you sure the mobo supports the proc you are using? Are you sure the proc is seated properly?

Are you using a DVI link to a flat panel? Sometimes they don't detect the signal until it is past posting.

The only thing I can suggest is to unplug everything from the board except the ram, cpu and PSU and see if it posts. I have seen the occaisional Gateway (which use the same parts as Emachines since gateway owns emachines) optical drive stop boards from posting. If it doesn't post with just ram and the board then either the board or ram or psu is dead. At least it will narrow it down to 3 parts.

all seated properly, its VGA to flatpanel through the onboard,


i will take out the CD drives and see how it goes from there.

EDIT:

tried that the monitor is still in standby mode tells me no signal and check my VGA cable, but it works fine on both my computers so i know it isnt that.
