Try this, unplug everything from the other board except the main hard drive, power connections, and monitor. if it does not come up, remove ram cards, leaving one stick. try again, if it is still bad swap ram sticks. If after all of this it still does not work you have a bad motherboard or processor

My computer seems to boot up fine but my monitor says no signal and my keyboard doesnt work


You can try tighten up the cable behind the monitor or disconnect the cables and reconnect. You can try another monitor to see whether the mother board and the cable works. Some settings in BIOS may be changed to use on-board video card (the one embeded on the mother board, which is connected on the ports out of the card slots) on your computer so make sure it is using the graphic card that is connected to the monitor. For keyboard, if may be mechanic issue on port or keys or cables if you will not see anything wrong about the keyboard. You can try to use another USB port if it is an USB keyboard or use a USB/PS2 converter if the PS2 keyboard port is not working. If it is a PS2 keyboard, you can check whether the pins are bent and reconnect it. Sometimes that helps. If it is a wireless keyboard, then you will need to fix the monitor and then maybe fix the driver and stuff. You can remove all objects beneath the keys by putting it upside down and shake it or use a blower.

MY PC display is totaly grabled.ido not have a mother board disc.so i need to install display driver for my pc.How can i do that?


First, you should test your system with another monitor. This will let you know if it is your monitor, or a software issue.

If the second monitor works, your monitor may need to be replaced. If it is also garbled, your video card/on board video may be the problem.

It looks like issue with either mother board or processor.
open the box and remove all memey and power it on. if it makes a beep sound, there is no issue with processor, else we suscpect processor. If it make beep sound, it might be mother board issue. And for checking monitor working condition, remove monitor data cable and see no cable connected messages comes in monitor or not

Emachine will not power up


By nothing else, from a technical standpoint this would mean literally nothing, the CPU fan, power supply fan, aux fan, disk drive not spinning up, etc. My experience with EMachines is their motherboards aint the best, have been known to take out hard drives and other peripherals to the mother board. If you are technically inclined the first thing to do is to bare out the system, Power Supply attached to the Mother Board w/ Cpu Monitor and Keyboard no Hard Drive and no Non esential boards installed, very carefully remove the memory and start it up all should be fine except it should give you a long beep from the PC Speaker indicating the Mother Board is aware there is no memory installed if it will not do this most basic of tests this is not good. If it does give you a health beep continue to install one item at a time, first the memory, the display should, if working, tell you there is a boot failure, of course, the hard drive is not connected, do so and keep on testing. Without knowing what type of mother board you have, most likely an AT with integrated peripherials the process to determine exactly what the problem is would take hands on trouble shooting. If you dont get the beep indicating the mother board cant determine if memory is installed and truley nothing else is on it is more likely the mother board. There are several good ones online that will fit your case if you want to go this route. Or is it time to upgrade ?

THE SCREEN SMEARS NAD SHUTS DOWN


Hi eakesj:
A number of things here should be checked.
First shut down and remove all cards, and power connections to all the drives such as cdroms, hard drives.
The power supply should also be looked at and tested for correct voltages on each wire. This can be done with a voltage meter.
Turn on the power and see if you can get the machine to start to the bios screen. (this will work if you have a video processor on board, if you have a video card, you will need it to use the monitor).
If that will not work, then you have more problems than you thought at the beginning.
If the mother board will not work at this point, then you have problems with either the mother board or the cpu processor. There is a possibility that there are problems with the memory modules.
So, if you have only one memory module, then I would remove the memory, carefully clean the contacts, (a clean pencil eraser can work, if you are careful, and do not press very hard) and then plug the memory back in and try again. Also if you have extra modules of the same type, try one for testing.
If you are still having the same problems, then the mother board or the cpu is the problem. At this point you should consider if you want to continue and repair or buy another mother board of the same size. If you buy another kind of mother board, remember you will have to re-install your operating system over the original one to get the complete setup and the bios to work correctly with it. Many times this can be done, but you risk losing data (you will lose all data in MY DOCUMENTS), and may have to completely re-install the OS. You may want to install the drive in another computer as a slave and back up any data you want to save before you proceed.
If you decide to continue with your original mother board, and still have problems, then the cpu or the mother board is suspect. To test the cpu, either test your board with another cpu which is compatible, or check the mother board with another mother board of the same exact model.
Hope you find the problem.

Hi Colour on my Acer monitor has gone ? Initially everything went green' I've reset monitor settings and some improvement resulted - now the reds are palest yellow Any suggestions tom


most of such cases are not due to problem in monitors... they are problems caused by mother board's or the externally attached graphics/video cards... So in order to make sure which causes problem.. you can try to connect another monitor to your system.. or perhaps your monitor to another system...

If the monitor is faulty colored everywhere.. then the monitor has to be given for repair.. (you cant do it by yourself)
if the other way... any monitor connected to your sys is faultly solored.. then you have to change your video card attached to mother board...

hope this helps your situation..

White lines going across the screen


THere are two possibilities
1. problem in mother board
2. problem in monitor

To make sure if possible connect your CPU to another monitor and see if all is fine. If the other monitor works fine, then your monitor has th problem
if the other monitor also has lines, then the mother board's video card has prob.

Also check the connection wire between the CPU and monitor that there is no loose contact or any cuts or damages in the wire
