Welcome to Mac-Forums, beartrap.

Is this eMac running on 10.4.x?

A cold boot runs POST as it starts up. A restart does not, so you could have a bad but still functional ram chip. In other words the ram chip might fail the POST but still function enough to allow the eMac to restart. When you say you shutdown following the system failure, do you mean a cold, dead boot? Or are you forcing a restart?
