Puddycat_196,

Did you just performed a clean installation to your system? Or maybe you just replace a new video card? The blank screen normally caused because of the resolution setting which is too high for the screen to support, or maybe the frequency setting, or you have incompatible video driver.

You can determine this problem by boot into your windows in VGA mode. What you have to do in order to boot into the VGA mode will be, press "F8" on your keyboard will you switch on your computer, you might need to press a few times, until you see the Boot Menu.
Choose "Boot with VGA Mode". More information about Advance Boot Menu will be available here

http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleid=1643&page=2

Once you successfully boot into windows in VGA mode, you can now adjust your display properties. Try to adjust from the lower range, like 800 x 600, and the frequency with the recommended one matched your Display Unit.

Good luck trying.

Wont boot/ says auto config over and over


Then use Recovery Console:
To boot from the Windows XP CD, insert it into the CD-ROMdrive on the problem system and press [Ctrl][Alt][Delete] to reboot thecomputer. Once the system begins booting from the CD, simply follow the promptsthat will allow the loading of the basic files needed to run Setup. When yousee the Welcome To Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.

You'll then see a Recovery Console menu. It displays the foldercontaining the operating system's files and prompts you to choose the operatingsystem you want to log on to. Just press the menu number on the keyboard, andyou'll be prompted to enter the Administrator's password. You'll then findyourself at the main Recovery Console prompt.

After restarting windows use a system utility software like RegInOut.

i have read some reviews on your monitor
So the ex-hubby calls me with his woes - his eMachines T3124 is having problems. Seems that when he cold boots in the morning it hits the "E" splash screen and then just goes to black screen. No bios boot screen, no boot to windows. Everything sounds ok though. After a few restarts it boots ok. So, first trouble shoot is to replace the 180w Bestec power supply with a salvaged 300w Hippro from my T6420 (which was replaced with a 500w) - the one I replaced the mobo on. Works great ... for one night. Next morning I get the frantic call - now he gets nothing after the "E" splash but white wavy lines, but the computer sounds like it's running fine. Ok - ok ... think, think. First thought was maybe the onboard graphics have gone, next thought maybe the mobo is going ....

What is the next thing we do after trying a known, good power supply? Try another working montior. I had him try using a trusty older CRT monitor and Wha-Lah! After less than 3 years the E17T4 LCD monitor had failed. Most recent crisis handled. This little incident has made him realize though that he needs to burn all his picture and videos to CD. Scared him to think he could have lost them. Today's reminder? BURN your pictures and videos now! You never known when something might happen. And eMachines monitors are ****.

hope this helps

The display screen got smaller.How can I bring it back to normal size?


You have to change the resolution of the screen.
Right click on the desktop, not on an icon- Properties- settings- at the "Screen Resolution" box increase the value.

The following is for Windows Vista:

Hi,

This sounds like a resolution problem.

Can you move the windows messenger out of the way so you are looking at the Desktop screen (usual screen which has icons on it which is the first thing which appears after it has gone past the welcome screen)

On the desktop screen right click on a clear bit of space and try and change the resolution.

Failing this if you have an alternate monitor or LCD TV with VGA monitor input try use your TV and by outputting to your TV you will probably have enough of the screen displayed to copy what you need.

If all of the above fails. Best thing to do is to take your laptop Hard Disk Drive out of the computer and slave it into another computer or laptop to copy your documents / pictures etc as you clearly stated your not interested in reparing it. If your not sure how to do this then please come back to me

Green display on boot up Please help


Check to see that there are no machine BIOS settings that could affect the monitor. Normally, the bios controls display until the OS takes over. If your XP screen after bootup looks fine, I don't see how you have a problem with your monitor setup under Windows.

Emachines model 780 monitor comes on for one second then goes blank


CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.
