Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I turn on my computer and everyting looks fine and my monitor just flicks off, followed by the no signal pop up; power light is amber, CPU stays on. Have UPS backup, no alarm goes off that power is lost. Very random problem, sometimes I can work for days and no problem. I have switched monitors (first had View Sonic VA 1930 WM, now using emachines monitor), then switched power cords. Problem still occurs
If you have switched monitors and the problem persists, I would first look at your cabling, if you did not use the same cable on both monitors then the drivers would be suspect. Go to your video cards site and update the drivers after checking all your cables and connections, also check that the video card is properly seated on the motherboard (if its not integrated onto the motherboard). An easy way to check the monitors, is to plug them into another computer (EG: laptop) and they should have the same problem there, i doubt they will from the symptoms you are having. also try bypassing the UPS and plug the monitor straight into an extension cord or wall.
Remeber, try this in steps, not all at once, so you can tell what works..
Hope this Helps!
