Whenever you remove the heatsink fan, you need to apply a fresh coat of thermal compound to the cpu before you reapply the fan. If you don't it will overheat and shut down quickly to prevent the cpu from burning out. Read the instructions for your processor.

Well, I have the same problem except I did not do anything> I shut it down and the nextday it would not boot up. The fan runs. The led on the front does not light up. I have the same emachine. I am thinking maybe it's the board or the cpu
