Monitor works in dos starup, but fails in Vista startup mode.

Kenmark, lcd 15" HDTV monitor does not work with newly purchased emachine el1210. LIve emachine support is a automated robot chat and is completely worthless. Finally ask the tech what planet we are on and the answer is "I am here to assist you". Duh, the correct answer is, earth. Don't buy emachine.

Sounds like windows resolution or refresh rate is too high for the 15" monitor. Try starting in safe mode and setting the resolution below 1024 X 768 and refresh at 60. Restart.

I need an Emachine monitor base piece. The piece that the monitor sits on got lost during our recent move.


I generally go to Ebay when I need to replace a part or find 'hard to find' items. You can find monitor stands on ebay for a reasonable price. You just have to make sure that the stand will work with your emachines monitor. All you have to do is look at the back to see how the stand attaches to the monitor and look for the same mount type. Below is a link to an ebay listing for 15 inch monitor stands.

http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=15+LCD+monitor+stands&_sacat=0&_odkw=emachines+E15+monitor&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313


You can also contact ebay by chat by following this link and ask if they have stands available for your monitor. There are none listed on the emachines site, but that does not mean that they are not available. The link to the Emachines contact page is:

http://www.emachines.com/corporate/contacts.html

These are two suggestions for finding a replacement monitor base or stand. I hope that you will be able to located the proper stand from these resources.

If I can be of further assistance to you, please let me know.

Monitor stuck in standby


Try tapping F8 when booting and then choose 'safe mode with networking'
if this works go to the lcd manufactures web site and look for a specific driver for your screen.

Benq 19" monitor not working every time when computer started


Check your connections and make sure they are tight, and there are no bent pins. If everything seems ok, you might want to try plugging this monitor into a different computer or plug a different
monitor into yours to determine whether it's the monitor, the video card, or maybe the driver (doubtful on this as you state it seems to be bad somethimes on boot).

15inches monitor troubleshooting


Hi Rachel,
The old monitor was set to a resoloution that is higher then you current monitor can handle. This is normally the case when changing from a CRT to an LCD

Try this:
Unplug the video cable from the back of your computer.
Start the computer and wait for about 2 minutes.
Press the power button on the front of the computer just once. This will **** it back down safely again.
Plug the video cable back in, then restart the computer with the monitor turned on.

If this dosn't work then try this:
  1. Turn the computer on (have the monitor already powered up)
  2. When the computers bios/splash page goes away begin to press F8
  3. You should get a Windows Startup options page.
  4. If you see the WIndows Logo you normally see when it loads, just hit the reset button and try again.
  5. In the Windows Startup page, select Safe Mode and press enter twice
  6. Windows will now load.
  7. On the desktop right click anywhere there is nothing.
  8. Select Display Properties, a new window will open
  9. Select the last tab at the top of the window (properties)
  10. You will see a slider on the left side, move it to 800x600, select apply, then close the box.
  11. Restart Windows.
If that fails, then please post back and we can try something else.

Weird blink problem...


That's definitely a hardware (incompatiblity) problem. Download the most updated driver for the graphics card. Also see if there is a monitor driver for the monitor.

I understand it worked seamlessly for the emachine but you should switch it back for a day or two to rule out the monitor just screwing up.

Emachine 15' lcd monitor


Hi,

Your query - "can the monitor work with an older HP computer?"

Normally yes, assuming that there is no hardware fault. The message is an indicator that somehow the settings of the display of the old HP computer does not match that of the Emachine 15' LCD monitor.

Perhaps what you can do is to run the old HP PC in Safe Mode (press F8 before Windows starts), using the arrow keys, select top mode setting in the Menu which is Safe Node, hit enter. Windows should then start and normally should be viewable no matter what settings the monitor can handle. On Safe Mode Windows, right click on any clear area of the desktop, click on properties, Settings tab, move the Screen resolution to the left most position, set the color quality to the lowest possible choice. Click on Advanced button, click on Monitor tab, set Screen Refresh Rate to lowest possibler, OK, OK, reboot.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back if things worked out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards

Monitor problem


It sounds as if you have a resolution set that the display does not support. Restart your machine in safe/VGA mode by holding down F8 while the machine boots. Once in safe mode, set the resolution (Right click--> properties--> Settings--> Screen Resolution) to one that your display supports.
