You don't give us much to go on. But maybe if you go to the manufactures site here and get some system specs and any additional information possible. We might be able to point you in a direction to begin to assist. From what you have posted so for, I would wonder if it was even plugged in or turned on. Trust me, that has been a cause more than once, with a 'black screen'.

EMachines have been known to have faulty power supplies that also take the motherboard with it when they fail

eMachines are lower end pcs. Sold by the likes of Walmart and some office supply stores. Good for simple surfing, or other home uses, the end user usually gets what they paid for - a cheap computer. eMachines often fail before other higher quality (and more expensive) machines do.

garmanma is correct, that the power supplies often go bad. I have replaced many power supplies and motherboards, sometimes cpu, on eMachines. Often the cost of repairs prompts the owner to purchase a new computer, because they are used to purchasing a computer for such a low cost. But once again, they will end up with a low end machine.

If the power supply and motherboard are replaced using good parts, then these machines can last quite a while, for simple computing and surfing chores.
