It is probably just your monitor telling you that everything is connected, Those emachines are pretty User Friendly, I can almost guarantee there is nothing wrong. Congrats on your new buy :)

I replaced my ram and now my monitor won't work. I took out the new ram, put the old back in and still no monitor. Everything I read mentions video card...where is that?


Being eMachines it is probably on board VGA. You can check by looking to see if the VGA lead to the monitor plugs into a VGA card or the motherboard.
Unfortunately it may be caused by static discharge when the RAM was replaced if you didn't observe anti static precautions.
Hope its a VGA board fault but if you install a VGA card and turn off the on board VGA that will work.
Hope that helps.

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.


Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..

My emachine will turn on and run without doing anything. The monitor states no signal.


Either the VGA cable (cable from your monitor to computer) or VGA port on your computer is faulty. Try connecting another monitor to your computer to determine the problem. If the other monitor works, then your VGA cable is faulty. If the other monitor doesn't work, the VGA port is faulty. Hope that helps.
