my son's e-machine suddenly "died" (well, it was never really alive...). When I push the on-off button I get absolutely nothing- no lights, fans, etc. I checked the power cord, I opened up the front and bypassed the on-off switch, looked around inside for loose connectors, found nothing obviously burned looking. I even opened up the power supply, but everything looked OK. It sounds to me like the power supply burned out. Any other possibilities? A new power supply is around $50, I'm not sure it's worth spending any money on such an old computer. Any ideas?
