I just bought an SVA monitor i wanted to know if it is compatible with an Emachines CPU? The screen keeps saying "Unknown Mode" and :Entering Sleep Mode" what should I do?


Yes, if the plug fits into the video card port then it will work. Did the monitor you had before work? Sounds like a video card problem not a monitor problem.
Try hooking the monitor to another computer to test.
Let me know what happens.

How to connect emachine flat monitor to my computer?


Hello,

It sounds as if you are missing the power cord for the monitor. If the cord did not come with your monitor/PC, you can pick one up at any Radio Shack or electronics store. If you could forward me your eMachine model number as well as the monitor model number, I will see if I can better solve this for you without you having to spend anymore money.

Best Regards,
Franklin, C2Solutions

Has a cord that has the same type of connection on both ends


Look on the back of the emachine, there should be a blue connector with 15 holes in it. Thats the VGA connector and thats where the other end of that cable goes.

Emachine T3414 monitor


Turn off the computer and monitor. Disconnect the monitor. Turn on the monitor. You should get some indication the monitor is on, if not it is probably dead.

If the monitor seems to be on, try to enter the menu by using the buttons or knobs on the monitor. If the menu comes up, the monitor is probably good and you have a computer problem.

If you think the monitor is bad, hook it up to an operational computer. If it works, you definitely have a computer problem; if not the the monitor is definitely dead.

Either way try to have the problem resolved under the warranty.

Emachines model 780 monitor comes on for one second then goes blank


CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.
