Techguru2009: You need to reset the bios to defaults and make sure all devices are connected before you turn your computer on. Make sure in the bios setup that the setting for the keyboard is usb support. If this does not work then you might have a faulty video card. Or you might need to reinstall the monitor in the operating system. If you are running windows operating system click on start button, administrative tools folder, select computer management. Alternative, click on the run command on the start menu and type compmgmt.msc. When the program starts click on device manager. On the right side of pane click on monitors. Find all monitors right click on each one and unistall all of them. When you restart your computer the operating system should recognize plug and play monitor and intall it automatically. I hope this method works for you.

Your new moniter may not be compatible with your computer. I have an Emachines that won't take a flat screen. I have to use a big bulky moniter because it says not connected even thought the hookup fits the back of the tower. That might be your problem. Did your old moniter work correctly?

E machine wont recognize the moniter or keyboard


With the limited info that you provided, it seems like the motherboard is not functioning. When you turn the computer on, does anything happen in the box?

No power to moniter


Disassemble the monitor and check the power board for blown capacitors. To do this remove the 4 screws holding the back on, unclip the cover where the stand is fixed to the screen chassis and remove 4 further screws securing the stand. Carefully prize off the bezel (I found a mid sided flat blade screwdriver inserted and slid sideways with an occasional gentle twist worked well, I started at the bottom of the sreen so if I made a mark interting the blade it would not show). Unscrew but do not disconnect the wires to the keyboard board so it moved enough to allow the back cover to be slipped off. Remove two screws and slide off the EMI cover. You should now see the power board - the one the power cable plugs into. Check the capacitors - its likely you will see one or more have blown and are bulging. Replacements cost approx 50p / 1$ each you will need good de/soldering skills, soldering iron and solder ****** or desolder braid. This voids any warrantee - but then if you had warrantee you wouldn't fix it yourself anyway. Note that all the above is based on UK spec monitor.

Sounds like there may be more than one problem, so first let's make sure you shut the computer down completely:

1) Press and HOLD the power button on the computer tower until it goes completely dark. A single press often puts the computer in sleep mode, so holding the key for approximately 5 seconds usually forces a power off. After doing that, If you're still not sure if it powered off, unplug the AC power cord from the back of the computer tower for a few seconds and plug it back in. Now, make sure all other cables (monitor, keyboard, mouse) or wireless USB adapters for keyboard and mouse are securely plugged in where they are supposed to be.
2) Press the power button on the computer tower briefly to turn it back on.
3) Everything may be working now, but if not:
a) Monitor still dark? Make sure the monitor is on and plugged in, also, there is often an input source button on the bezel of the monitor to toggle between input sources (such as VGA, DVI and even HDMI). Press and wait a few seconds for a picture, repeat slowly at least 3 times.
b) Keyboard or mouse still not working? If wireless, make sure they have fresh batteries and that the wireless USB adapter is plugged into a USB port firmly. If wired, make sure the cables are plugged in firmly into the correct places on the back of the computer.

If all that fails, your new computer may be faulty and need to be returned to where you purchased it.

My Acer LCD AL1711 went off after seconds of turning on.


This monitor has "back lights" that are essentially like flourescent lights. These are high voltage lights and can easily fail. since you are getting some light initially, I would suspect a defective part that heats up a bit right away and then fails. I would try to replace the entire backlight board. This is the small board on the side (usually).
