This is probably hardware related but try the following.

 

Remove the battery and power adapter. Hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Attach the power adapter but do not replace the main battery. Try to boot. Another thing to look at is replacing your CMOS battery. A dead CMOS battery can cause a computer to not boot.

I tried the battery trick and it didn't work. Somebody told me that it may be the hard disk or a hardware problem. If someone know something to help I'll appreciate it. Otherwise I think I'll go to the tech over here..

You said in the post I have just locked that you had changed the hard drive. Where did this hard drive come from ?  Just because it has the same O/S as the one you took out does not mean it will run in the emachine computer. You need the specific chipset drivers and the rest of the hardware drivers.

 

Some more information would be useful - make and model, operating system and version at a mininum.

 

One thing you could try, is see if it will boot from a 'live' - ie self-booting - CD such as a Windows install disc or Puppy Linux. If it doesn't have a CD drive you can install Puppy on a memory stick and try booting from that. If you need such a disc, you can get 'Puppy' - and instructions on how to use it - from here :
