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.

My computer will turn on but my monitor does not get a signal and I've tried this on two working monitors and two different power chords. The lights on the keyboards don't even work. Any solution?


I was just dealing with this last night. My pc would come on, but I kept getting a "No Signal" message on my monitor. I first plugged the machine into a known working monitor. It worked fine so that eliminated the video card issue. Then I plugged the monitor into a different computer...it too worked. So I knew that the monitor was good. I then switched the cord from the faulty monitor and still didn't get a signal. I proceeded investigating the issue. I found that if you boot the machine in safe mode, it actually caught a signal. So...I figured it must be something to do with the resolution. My solution: Boot the machine in safe mode, change the resolution in the control panel and reboot the machine. If it doesnt catch the signal booting in safe mode, I suspect it is a faulty video card. You are likely to find what you are looking for online at zipzoomfly.com or newegg.com

No screen


MOST likely the monitor is bad if you don't hear any beeps when booting up.

If you unplug the monitor the screen should say NO SIGNAL

This could be an issue of a video card gone bad. I have experienced the same issue firsthand. This could also mean that no RAM is installed. If you have been using this computer previously, the second option is probably not even an option.

If you have another computer available, please try plugging the monitor in to that machine to test. If it works, your Video Card is more than likely toast.

But not to worry, you should be able to find a new card for that machine. I believe it will be a PCI Video Card, which may run you anywhere from $20-$100 depending on what you purchase. Please consult with eMachines before ordering a new card. Some will not work with your machine.

I hope this helps you out. Have a great day and please don't hesitate to ask any further questions regarding this issue.

Says no signal on monitor.


The monitor is telling you that it is functioning properly (it works). It is also saying that it isn't receiving and signal from a computer. This can happen when-
** computer is turned off but monitor is on (this can occur, for example, when the computer's power supply dies while turned on). That happened to me just a couple of days ago.)

** monitor cable to computer has come loose or totally disconnected

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.
