Do yourself a favor, DO NOT try to start that unit again.
Bestec power supplies are best known for failing & frying the motherboard in the process.
It appears that yours is showing that it is on the verge of failure.
You will push the power button sooner or later [sooner from the sound of it] & it simply won't syart again.
The fans will spin & it will look like the power supply is working but the motherboard will be burned.
If you hook a new motherboard to it that one will fry immediatly too.
I wouldn't even plug the computer in until I changed the PSU.
BTW, Bestec power supplies are what gave emachine a bad name.
