    i have an EMACHINE T6420 and last week. when i would go into vnc (pc connecting software) the monitor would just go blank. i couldn't get it back either unless I unplugged the machine for a few mins and plugged it back in. Then it would run fine for awhile and sometimes turn off again but always seemed like when I was in vnc software. I uninstalled vnc software and re-installed. I ran adware, malwarebytes and our antivirus software and got nothing. I thought memory was faulty. I bought new memory and replaced. The pc came up once and went down again when i went into vnc software. shut machine off to reboot and it will not come up. The keyboard stopped working the mouse stopped working and i have no video. I also can not ping on network anymore. so I can't remote into it either.

Have you tried a different Monitor with the PC?

Sounds like a Video card problem. Try a different Monitor that you know works with it. If you have the same problem try removing the video card from the PC and then put it back in. Make sure it fully seats into its slot, if the slot has a flipcatch at the back of it make sure that swings up and locks into the notch on the video card. If there is a power connector on the video card make sure that it is plugged in.

If you try these and you still have a problem, please post a comment here, so I can further help you

Hope this helps

    Your Motherboard has an integrated Video adapter that I think may have inadvertently turn on. Do you have a seperate video card (One near the bottom of the PC in the slot ports) or do you just have the integrated Video (Up near the mouse/keyboard and USB connectors)

    If you have a seperate Video card move your monitor cable to the Other Video connector, If you then get a signal, let me know and I can advise you how to change your BIOS setting to use the seperate card.

    If you do not have a seperate card let me know and I can try to think of other causes for your problem.

    Looking forward to helping you

Acer Monitor V193W has no signal

There are 2 basic reasons for the "No Signal" message.
  1. Loose video card inside the machine- if you're machine didn't come with on board video or if you are using an independent video card instead of on board video, the card can unseat at times, either due to movement of the machine or pulling on the video cord
  2. Loose connection between the video cord and/or monitor and/or machine. Unless the plugs on both ends are secure (including tightening both screws to prevent loss of connection), the cord can dislodge just enough to interrupt your connection, causing a "No Signal".
If neither of these is the case, try hooking up a different monitor (if equipped, you can use an HDMI cable to your TV) to see if the "No Signal" message persists.If using a different monitor works, the issue is your Acer Monitor.

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 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 or

My emachine computer was working then just stopped, when I tried to turn it back on. the moniter is showing no signal received. I have tried checking the VGA connection, changing it out for another, no...

Try your monitor on another machine - if it is working you have operating system/hard drive/motherboard/memory/heating problems. You must work that out if the monitor is good.

When I turn on my pc I an see the hard drive light working and flashing, indicating that it is loading up, but my monitor does not receive any video signal,so I hooked my pc to my freinds monitor and I got...

Sounds like your video card is bad. You will need to purchase a new one. On some machines there is 2 video connectors -like 1 on the motherboard and 1 other mounted in a slot just verify that you have tried both connectors if you have them before buying a new card.

NOTE: Usually the slot mounted video card will over-ride the motherboard video by default.

Good Luck!

Computer not booting up

Could be one of two things:

1. Signal cable from monitor isn't hooked up. (either monitor end or computer case end)

2. Video card in the computer is damaged and not putting out signal. This is unlikely though as usually this will trip the motherboard into beeping when you turn the computer is turned on.

Pc powers up but nothing on the monitor

I have run into this a few times and it has turned out to be a bad motherboard.Also the power supply they put in the emachine is not very good.The power supply in them has caused the motherboard to blow.Im not saying it is your motherboard, that is just a good possibility.Goodluck
