My E machines 5260 won't start up! It appears to start then comes up with no video input! It used to be OK if left for a few hours but recently it won't start at all, just the "No video input" on screen. Any ideas? The PC is approx 5 years old.

Techguru2009: You might have a static electricity charge on your motherboard. First you need to ground yourself before you open the case. Remove the memory cards from the motherboard. Turn your computer on without the memory installed, you should hear several beeps. The system is letting you know that you have no memory. Turn computer off reinstall the memory cards, close case and boot up. You might also want to reset the bios while you are at it, you can do this by removing the cmos battery for ten minutes. Warning: do not open the case while the plug is still on. Safety first. I hope this helps.

Your machine was difficult to track down. As far as I can tell, the 5260 is the Intel motherboard. Below is a link to a page where you can individually download the drivers you require. Best of luck! Greg
No input usually indicates the machine is having trouble getting a video signal from the monitor. Check and make sure the monitor cable is connected properly. If you have another monitor also test the machine with another monitor.
Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--
Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
