Let's start troubleshooting. First your monitor has the power thats for sure. Tka your monitor and hook it up to another computer, just to see if the monitor is gonna work. If it doesn't it could be your monitor. If it does then it could be your video card. Don't forget to try a new cable as well, it might be it, too.

E machine model T3626 turns on display doesnt work and doesnt power off???


Sounds like either the Monitor is bad or the Video Card is bad. Try plugging another monitor on the computer and if it can't show a display then more than likely the Video Card is bad. If it shows on the monitor you just plugged in, then the original monitor is bad.

It states cpu fan not on


Hope you can open the CPU and check the CPU fan. Try unplugging the fan power cable on motherboard and inseting again.
If it doesnt solve it, take out the fan (attached to the top of heat sink. Dont take out heat sink) and try with a battery of some 6 volt. Red +ve Black -ve. If it doesnt run, you need to replace that fan.

My monitor is not responding to anything. what can i do aside from rebooting?


do you see the light blinking in the monitor? I mean the POWER led light up? If so, then the monitor is ok and is working good. It is your CPU which has a problem and not sending digital signal for the monitor to display.
Try to turn off your computer. After 3 minutes turn it back on. then notice if you will hear a short beep from the CPU. That signals a successful video initialization. If you went through that process, then your computer will get back to life.
However, if you dont hear a short beep from the CPU, then definitely your CPU is frozen therefore there is nothing to display to the monitor.
You need to open the CPU case, pull out memory modules then plug them back in. Then try booting.
If not successful, try to open case and pull out the processor. Put it back in after 30 seconds. Try booting again.
Do ALL THESE while your PC is UNPLUGGED.
Good luck.

Have you tried another video card? Or even another monitor? If not, could be the motherboard especially if the video card is integrated into the motherboard.

My comp does not show anything on the moniter??


If you have another monitor try it, if it works then you have a bad monitor. If a different monitor doesn't work in it then it could be the motherboard or CPU. If they are bad there is not test for that, the only real way to test them is to buy one piece at a time and see which one works. Also if your monitor has a power adapter check it. Sometimes those do die and not the monitor.

I boot my cpu but the monitor doesnt show anything


Hi again.
The beep codes you describe are memory issues or failure, take the system memory out, clean the contacts and the slots with a clean, soft, dry paintbrush. Re-seat the memory firmly and try boot the PC again.
please post back with the results

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
