Are you hearing the fan running or seeing any lights on the system box or keyboard?
If it is not showing any signs of life, the main power supply has failed; these are built as poorly as anything in your PC and one of the most frequent failures. The fact that it was taking longer each time was an indication that the supply was dying. If your find this to be true, you can buy a replacement supply on eBay for < $20 US and DIY. The supply you need will likely be an ATX standard and before you buy one, you should have yours in hand to compare the connector complement since there can be differences.
On opening the case of the system box, touch some bare metal of the chassis to discharge any static charge you may have from carpeting or clothing.
Removing the supply should be easy; there are four screws holding the supply to the back of the system box (this is where the rear fan is located which is part of it) and a dozen or so connectors going to the drives and main board. Remove the connectors first. Be careful removing the main board plugs as you don't want to stress the board too much; they have hundreds of fine traces on them that can be broken if stressed the wrong way.
When reinstalling the replacement, note that there are a number of identical plugs and they are totally interchangeable and you will likely have several left over that are not needed unless you add a number of drives or other add-on cards.

This monitor worked great for exactly one year from the purchase date. The day the one year warranty expired, this monitor completely went blank, and will not even turn on. An uncanny coincidence or a...


I vote for both. It's an uncanny coincidence if eMachines last more than a year and they may be programmed to be obsolete shortly after that.

eMachines are not a fav of mine, and I certainly feel your anguish. Maybe your dealer can do something. It's worth a call.

Screen shows message "no input signal" and monitor goes to sleep.


monitor show "no input singnal" error masage when not gating any type of video singnal ,
so if u realy check your monitor wires for correctty plugged in .
then:-

Two possibilities:

either the video/mainboard of the monitor is defective; or
the video card/ CPU is the faulty.

A way to verify is to try the PC with another monitor or to try the monitor in another PC.

thanks

Gateway FPD1760TFT LCD monitor


Problem
1. turn on computer
2. monitor receives signal, it looks like its working
3. it goes through some steps and then the monitor says "no signal" and kind of stays in limbo with fans running, etc.

Solution
One possibility is that computer is looking for drivers for you video card. It could be hung up looking in the wrong places. Remove all peripheral hard drives and memory sticks. Try again.

My monitor says no signal


You'll need to check the cable connections and the computer that it is attached to. The monitor may be going into standby mode because the computer went into Suspended/Hibernate mode. Try restarting the computer. If you're unable to do this, try a hard power off and then try to turn it back on.

Weird blink problem...


That's definitely a hardware (incompatiblity) problem. Download the most updated driver for the graphics card. Also see if there is a monitor driver for the monitor.

I understand it worked seamlessly for the emachine but you should switch it back for a day or two to rule out the monitor just screwing up.
