Once in a blue moon if I turn my computer on it work's but it hasnt for about 3 or 4 days now. I do have my computer plugged into a surge protector so I'm not sure what happened or what to do about it! please help!

    I forgot to add that I can turn my CPU on anytime. That part will power up but the monitor, mouse and keyboard will not.

    That is very strange. Have you tried unplugging everything, turning on the computer, letting it run about 20 minutes, pressing the power button once to shut it down, plugging everything back in, then powering on the computer?

    It's possible that it will, "unlock" the system. A CMOS reset might also be helpful.

Well, when my emachine did this, I was informed the "power toggle" was "gone" and that basically it would cost more to fix than to replace. I suggest you have this looked at as I suspect you will be given similar information.
Wish I had better news. Good Luck!

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

No power light when on but can hear running, no screen image


First make sure the monitor is on and connected to the PC.
If the power light is not on you could have a bad power supply, it could also be that the onboard video went bad.
If your PC has four trouble lights in the back, let us know which ones are lit, this can pinpoint the problem.
The noise you hear is the drive spinning up and the CPU fan.
Good Luck.

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went gray or stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,
