Hello,
As mentioned that when you turn on the system the lights on the system turns on and the monitor goes off, unplug the VGA cable from the system tower and turn on the monitor and check if you get signals on the screen if it shows you some color bar or a massage, that means your monitor is good. IF not then there is problem with the monitor . get it repaired or replace it. If that is not the case you would need to unplug all the external devices connected to the tower and try, IF not then you need to open the tower and check for the green light on the motherboard if it comes on or you can try reseting the memory card or if you have an video card, then you will have to remove the card and try the build in one .

Without knowing what yo have for a BIOS, it is difficult to diagnose. The below link is a list of beep error codes for different BIOS types. Check your BIOS to see if it is one on the list and see what it means:

6 long beeps indicates that there is a problem with the memory, take them out, clean the contacts and the DIMM slots and reseat them.
Hopefully this will resolve the problem, if not new memory may be required

SOURCE: I have an emachines E4214. When I turned it on, it

With the power turned off, take out all your memory sticks and with one of the sticks try to reinsert it into a slot and then turn the machine one, if you get no beeps and you get video then you know that all you need to to is to reinsert the rest of the memory sticks. Keep in mind that you may have to do this with each memory stick reinserting them into each slot one stick at a time until either you find a bad memory stick or a bad memory slot. If your lucky it will be neither and you will have only needed to reinsert the memory.

Hi shyguy,

Before I address your issue, I figured you ought to know:

Buying an emachine is one of the worst moves a consumer can make. Why? because despite the fact that they are cheap, they frequently have problems, which can take money out of your pocket. Not only that, but they can be a pain in the *** in general. The old saying "You get what you pay for" should certainly be followed to some degree when purchasing a computer.

Now that I got that out of the way, on to your problem. I have a feeling that your motherboard might be shot. Before I have you think that, I want you to see if you can open it up and check to make sure your RAM is seated in the slot properly. If that doesn't work, then I think your motherboard is most likely gone.

If you need any more assistance, I'd be glad to try and lend a hand. You can e-mail me at perdue1202@yahoo.com

Good Luck.

If its a flat screen monitor ?

eMachines flat-screen monitors offer high quality at low cost. eMachines flat-screen monitors are compatible with most brands of PCs. Issues with eMachines flat-screen monitors can arise from faulty power sources, cable problems and incompatible settings. These issues can be resolved by testing step-by-step each possible cause.

Plug the computer's power cable firmly into a working AC outlet. Press the computer's power button.

Check the LEDs on the front of the computer case to confirm that the computer receives power. Plug the eMachines monitor's power cable into a working AC outlet. Press the monitor's power button. Check the LEDs on the front bezel or power button of the eMachines monitor to confirm that the monitor receives power. Orange or blinking LEDs indicate low power or no signal. Green LEDs denote a working connection.. Perform a monitor self-test. Switch off the monitor. Unplug the video cable from the monitor. Press the eMachines monitor's power button. An eMachines logo, Windows logo or "no signal" message indicates that the monitor is working properly. Plug the eMachines monitor's video cable into the video port on the computer. Attach the monitor's included DVI-to-VGA adapter to the monitor's VGA cable if your computer has a DVI port (15 or 25 pin-slots with 1 side slot) in place of a VGA port (15 pin-slots, no side slot). Press the eMachines monitor's input button to change the monitor's setting to match the computer port used. Set your monitor to DVI if connected to your computer's DVI port. Set your monitor to VGA if connected to your computer's VGA port. Connect the eMachines monitor to a known working computer with a known working video cable if the problem persists. Contact Gateway, eMachines manufacturer, if the monitor issue is not resolved. Hope this helps.

Whenyou plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, wherethe plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted,but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static ChargeBuildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit thepower button to see if it boots. Maybeyour memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Removethe Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set thechip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you knowthe memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and tryrebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put theother chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just toverify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the openmemory chip slot and try booting.

When i turn on computer, monitor is on, but the on button is just blinking and won't turn on or off


Inspect the power supply first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My Samsung Syncmaster 240T stopped working today. I tried turning it on, and it starter emitting a constant short beep once every 2 seconds or so, along with the green Video light blinking every time it...


Hello,

Your Back light inverter power board has died. The beeping and blinking are caused by the power board repeatedly trying to start up and failing. This is a common failure point of LCD monitors2.gif after a few years of use. The heat build up in the monitor case causes parts called capacitors to blow leading to the power supply short. If you can solder you should be able to do the repair. Go to our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm We have pictures of what to look for. Now take the back off of your monitor and replace all of the caps that look like the pictures and you should be back going again. Be sure to use high temp parts, they will be marked 105c. The values you will need to get will be marked on the sides of the bad ones such as 220uf, 470uf or 1000uf. When you insert the new ones be sure to put the polarity stripe going the same direction as the old one comes out. If you have any questions just let me know. If you don't want to do the repair yourself we do offer a repair service for $30 + return shipping2.gif.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Display doesn't turn on, emits short beeps and blinks lights


Sounds like a low power problem, Check the power supply with a good ohm meter set to DC voltage if voltage is less than 14 v. Replace the supply. DWW
