E-machine computer not displaying anything on screen

I have a e-machine desktop pc and a couple of weeks ago the screen was playing video and all the sudden just froze and kinda scrambled. My wife restarted and now we get no picture at all on the screen no lights on the keyboard. The tower itself has power it comes on and you can here it trying to load but I never get anything. I was told it was a video card. I do not have the model number now the computer is a t a friends but it came from wal-mart about 4 years ago.

Press F8 while booting and select Safe Mode to see if you can get video. If you do it could be a driver problem and you could uninstall the Display Driver in Device Manager and try to boot normally and look for an updated driver. Reboot into Safe Mode again and select Cancel if prompted to install drivers when restarting to avoid reinstalling the existing drivers if it fails to operate after doing so. If still having issues it could be a failing video card or motherboard if the video is integrated.

What would cause a Dell Inspiron 580 that powers on but display nothing on the screen?


Some types of memory will only work as matched pairs, try only using two sticks of the same type, Otherwise check your memory and graphics card are seated properly, remove the power cable to the monitor for a few minutes then plug in, check you haven't loosened the monitor cable. Do you get anything onscreen? if you get start up then check BIOS see what memory it reports & the graphics settings. Its most likely something loose or the memory.

What would cause a DELL Inspiron 580 that powers on fail to display anything on the monitor?


You were right that 4 beeps was RAM. Now though, if you're getting no display .. I'm wondering if something may have been bumped etc when you were having to get in the machine. You might want to reseat the video card (if not mainboard video). Note :: Before attaching or detaching monitor cables, be sure the monitor is off as well as the computer. Only usb is safe to manipulate with power on.

First step before doing anything is to make sure all power is off and disconnected from the computer .. and anything connected to it is off too. (not just in standby) .. ok, now that's done, continue..

I'd advise checking any other cables that could have been affected during opening / closing etc .. you may wish to pull & reseat any sata cables going to drives, remove and reseat the video card and generally make sure nothing is on crooked. Sometimes, even connections in a new computer can look fine but until reseated (disconnected & reconnected) they won't work quite right or intermittently.

Hope that helps get you up and going. If not, update here with any other info you may think of. Thanks.!

My desktop computer will display anything when turned on, and the fan and hardrive both make a loud constant noise.


Maybe you need a larger power supply depending on if you might have added more hardware such as a graphics card, or an extra monitor to your system. This sometimes results in an inefficient supply of power, making your fan to your power supply work harder, thus making noise.

I just bought a New E-machine about a week ago and plugged it up to my TV monitor, now my screen has some sort of green bluish tint to it . When i unplug the computer and hook it up to the DVD or...


You didn't indicate what type of connection you have between the TV and the PC. The basic color scheme is red-blue-green, so your tint sounds like it's missing the red. It could be a cable problem, can you try replacing it/them. Or it could be a problem with the computer. If you don't want to return it you could try a different video card. I'm assuming you are using the motherboard video drivers.

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

Dell Dimension boot problem


You could try uninstalling the Display Adapter driver from Device Manager while in Safe mode then see if you can reboot normally. The drivers may reinstall automatically and it might blue screen again. If prompted to install drivers when restarting you could cancel and attempt to find better drivers, but it may be a failing video adapter.

Computer wont stay started


most likely its an over heating problem

most of the time when the computer (CPU) is overheating the computer will shut down by itself to prevent the (CPU) from damaging.

so all you need to do either clean the fans (internal and external fans). or maybe you will need to replace them.
