Next to the plug in is an LED light. If it is not lit then the cord or the network card is bad. a fire wall should not give a cable disconnected message, maybe a limited connectivity message.

My emachine desktop monitor keeps cutting on and off by itself. What should I do?'s really aggravating.


There are three possible reasons for the issue:
1. Monitor power cable is loose
2. Video Adapter is faulty
3. Monitor capacitor is gone bad

Please try the below steps to diagnose the issue:
1. Check the power cable on the back on Monitor, if connected properly, like connect the power cord on a different Wall outlet
2. Unplug the signal cable from the video adapter and replug it. Also, check a different monitor (if any) on the Tower.
3. If the above steps fails, then the issue is with the monitor, it is going for repair.

Thanks and regards,

Possible solutions:-

I have a wireless g pci adapter and it is installed on a computer running windows 2000 server. It is supposed to receive the signal from the wireless router wrt54g. It does not find the signal but somehow...

Hi, did you run the CD before you connected the adapter? I know the box says 'easy, no set-up' but there usually is a CD that needs to be run BEFORE connecting the device. If thats done, try bringing up the 'connect to a network' interface, selecting your network and click connect. If you have set up a wireless security password, enter it and click connect. The network cable unplugged is normal when you are running a wireless setup. I hope this is of some help.
