Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

The "menu," accessed on bottom of emachine computer monitor will not stop flashing on screen, even though it is not manually turned on. The "exit," button will not always turn it off. Sometimes it will remain on for seconds/minutes at a time, sometimes it will repeatedly flash on and off the screen. I do not believe the buttons to turn on are stuck, as they dont appear that way and sometimes I can work for half an hour on my computer without seeing it flash. This has been an ongoing problem with my computer for the past two weeks or so.

    The main menu for my monitor keeps flashing every ten seconds on the bottom right of my screen. It's the menu that appears when you hold down the 'menu' button for three seconds on the monitor, except i never held it down. The keys aren't stuck on mine either.

    have you tried unplugging monitor then resetting everything

    I think this person is describing a monitor issue, so a screen shot won't show anything. Sounds like the monitor's menu screen is intermittently coming up. This can be caused by the front panel switches becoming flaky or corrosion developing on the circuit board. These problems sometimes occur if spray cleaner is used on the monitor and it runs down onto the switches and board. Sometimes the switches themselves fail. But the trouble is not in the computer.

    I am having trouble picturing your problem. Is it possible for you to take a screen capture? You can do this by pressing the PrtSc button on your keyboard and then pasting into paint and saving the file. You can then insert the image into a post here by using the little picture of a tree. This will help me get a a better idea of what is going on.

Brightness/contrast locked


All computer monitors, whether they are LCD or CRT style, have a built-in feature called the on-screen display (OSD) lockout that prevents users from viewing any images on the monitor. If your computer screen has accidentally been set to the OSD lockout setting, there are several ways you can remove the lockout.

Power off your computer and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back side of the computer case. Reattach the cable and make sure the pins are correctly screwed in. Power the computer back on and check to see if the OSD lockout message is still being displayed. Check the manual that came with your computer or monitor and locate the troubleshooting section if you are still receiving the OSD lockout message. Find the OSD lockout heading and read the method that your particular model uses to remove the lockout. Attempt generic lockout removal procedures if you no longer have the manual that came with your monitor. Press and hold the "Menu" button located at the bottom of your monitor for 15 seconds and wait to see if the OSD lockout message disappears. Press the "Menu" button again if the lockout message remains on the screen. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options. Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings. Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lockout.

Default boot order for emachine laptop 732


Step 1:
All computer systems go through a set of instructions called the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) when they are turned on. The BIOS checks all of the hardware and software installed on the computer to make sure they are working properly before loading the operating system. You may need to access the BIOS menu periodically to find out the current version of the BIOS you have if there are upgrades available. The command you use to access the BIOS settings on an Emachines computer will vary depending on the specific model you have.

Access the Start menu and click "Shut Down." Select the "Restart" option. Wait for the Emachines logo to appear on the screen as the computer begins booting up again. Press the "Tab" key when the logo appears and see if the computer switches to the BIOS menu. Press the "Escape," "Delete," or "F2" keys if the "Tab" key doesn't take you to the BIOS menu screen. Use the right arrow key to highlight the "Main" entry and press Enter. Scroll down to the heading labeled "BIOS version." Check the long string of numbers and letters under the "BIOS version" heading to locate the current BIOS version your Emachines is using. Press the "F10" key to exit the BIOS menu screen and finish booting up the computer's operating system.

My HP 1730 monitor is showing "OSD Lock Out" message. How can I remove this msg?


The following site has step by step instructions on steps you can try: http://www.ehow.com/how_5008634_fix-lockout-display-computer-monitor.html
I'll paste them below: All computer monitors, whether they are LCD or CRT style, have a built-in feature called the on screen display (OSD) lock out that prevents users from viewing any images on the monitor. If your computer screen has accidentally been set to the OSD lock out setting, there are several different ways you can remove the lock out, depending on the make and model of your particular computer monitor.
1 Power your computer completely off and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back side of the computer case. Reattach the cable and make sure the pins are correctly screwed in all of the way. Power the computer back on and check to see if the OSD lock out message is still being displayed.
2 Check the manual that came with your computer or monitor and locate the troubleshooting section if you are still receiving the OSD lock out message. Find the OSD lock out heading and read the method that your particular model of monitor uses to remove the lock out. Follow the instructions to remove the lock out.
3 Attempt generic lock out removal procedures if you no longer have the manual that came with your monitor. Press and hold the "Menu" button located at the bottom end of your monitor for 15 seconds and wait to see if the OSD lock out message disappears.
4 Press the "Menu" button again if the lock out message remains on the screen. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options. Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings.
5 Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll over to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lock out.

I want to take a picture of an old photograph, how do I stop the flash coming on?


Hi there LisaMarie,

To turn off the Flash, you need to go to Menu, then go to Flash mode.
Select or highlight the icon with the flash with "slash". Exit menu. Flash mode shown by icon at bottom of monitor.

Menu box keeps popping up on screen


Same problem here. I've had this monitor almost two years with no problem until this morning when it started flashing the menu screen and nothing I do will make it stop. Oh well, it was only a hundred dollars. I guess this is emachine's way of saying, "you got your money's worth, now throw this piece of junk away and get another", lol. And therein lies the solution! :)

EMachines monitor keeps flashing the On Screen Display menu.


if it is the button. you would have to open the monitor and fix it that way, and i dont suggest doing that yourself, unless you are familiar with electronic components. take it to a repair shop. call around and get an idea of who would do the best job for the best price.

Let me know :)
