EMachine ET1161-01 power up problem

I just installed a brand new eMmachine desk top and connected it to an existing flat screen monitor, Every once in a while when the system is powered up, the monitor light goes very bright on the screen and can not see any characters on screen nor can I use the mouse.

Unless I turn off the breaker and power back up the system the problem will not go away. The system runs Vista software

Your new moniter may not be compatible with your computer. I have an Emachines that won't take a flat screen. I have to use a big bulky moniter because it says not connected even thought the hookup fits the back of the tower. That might be your problem. Did your old moniter work correctly?

New monitor purchased with a package with compaq desk top, but trying to use with a Acer desk top, screen comes on , but then goes completely dark after about two seconds. If switched off then on, again...


Could be a faulty monitor, or could be missing the driver information for the monitor. Usually when you first connect it will use a generic driver to start but then should automatically download and install the correct driver information for the monitor. Could also just be a faulty cable, power or VGA, HDMI, which ever you are using. Try using different cables first, then you can google search for the correct driver and manually install it.

Emachine t3092, no video, can't find certain desktop files


If they're not on the drive, they're not on the drive. Your only other option is to search the free disk space for the remainder of those files. For that you can use the free trial of O&O Unerase Personal. I hope you get those files, never fun to lose memories over a peculiar computer issue.

HP Monitor comes on with bright white screen since changing PC


Try using a different wall outlet to plug in your monitor. Believe it or not this actually may help.
What ever breakers you are talking about to get the monitor going doesn't really have anything to do with the drivers. Monitors are "plug and play" meaning the drivers are installed for you when you plug it in. It"s possible you don't have the connections on securely or maybe one of the pins are bent. Does it say "restore active desktop" anywhere on your screen?
Also possible the power supply isn't strong enough for your lcd.

Hi I live in Australia and have brought D-link dir-300 Wireless G router 1st off I have on screen D-link Quick router setup Quick router set has discovered that you are already connected to a router...


Dlink routers are fairly easy to set up most of the time, I've used several of them over the years. What the heck is this tower you keep speaking of? Is it a second computer or is it THE computer for your desktop monitor. Your explanation leaves a lot to be desired. I've never seen a commercial router that stands up like a tower computer and if you have one, it is probably a pretty expensive unit, so we must clarify and completely understand what you are talking about. You indicate that removing power and cables from the tower would disable your monitor and that makes it sound like the tower IS your computer. Does that make sense to you, it does to me.
