hmm, hope this can help...

connect only the power to the mobo. please take out the ram, disconnect all drives. if you run only the cpu/mobo on power the mobo should give off beep codes to let you know there is no memory. just turn on the system and have a listen. check if your mobo has this possible diagnostic.

try to reseat the power cables. a simple loose connection you cannot see will stop the computer from powering up, while the flea light can still be on.

throw up a few specs of the pc in need, that will help greatly

its a emachine with a celeron, dont know the model. I will try the swapping the ram tommorow. I think the mobo might be messed up cause the computer stopped working and i figured it was the psu so i swapped in a brand new one with no difference. Im hopeing its just the ram.

Nope didnt work. No beeps, and the psu isnt seeming to power on. Idk if that means the mobo or ram is meesed up. Ill switch it out tomorow.

eMachines usually die fast. Do you smell any funny smell? Something that burns? I had an eMachine before and it died less than a year. It could be that something fried, but you will have to troubleshoot that for sure with another computer.

Yea I tried replacing the ram but that did nothing. Im trying the cmos jumper right now. I pretty sure the psu took the motherboard with it. Im not even gonna try replacing it. One last queston, could it mybe be the power button? Like is there anyway to start the computer otherwise?
