1) Try the monitor on another PC, is it good? If yes 2) Try removing and re-seating the graphics card. 3) If on board graphics and so no graphics card, try a PCI graphics card in one of the spare slots
If the fans come on and BIOS does not post (initial screen upon power up), you likely have a mainboard or CPU issue. If a chip fan failed, or your box overheated, your CPU could be fried. Or possibly something on your motherboard got taken out due to lightning, a faulty power supply, etc. If this is the case, you're in bad shape as you're probably dead in the water and need a new MB/CPU.
If you are hearing any beeps upon power up, another hardware device such as memory or a video card (even a defective drive) could be the culprit. If you can try swapping out components to find the one that's causing the failure, and replace that component.
in my opinion e-machines are the bottom of the barrel and if they were giving them away I would have to pass, because they use the absolute lowest cost per unit parts = lowest quality parts in most cases... that is my opinion and not fact, sell it to someone and always buy the best quality you afford it almost always gives you more enjoyment for a longer period of time. Cheers!
Thanks for the idea, we took everything out and started the computer after adding each piece back we found that one of the new ram cards caused a lot of problems. I have taken it out and am going to call tiger direct to see about a replacement. We also have a couple of error messages now and I was wondering if anyone knows what theyt are, One is pcst.Tray.EXE is missing and the Second is BigFix has caused a runtime error, both are saying that they need to be reinstalled. Do you have any advice on these.
