    Sounds like the monitor is going bad on you. Can you reset the monitor back to factory defaults?

    If that doesn't work, do you have an extra known good working monitor that works that you can hook up to the computer to make sure its not a video card problem?

Actually, the monitor is fine. The problem is that the computer isn't booting. The power comes on and the fans spin, but the system board isn't starting. Try reseating the memory modules in their sockets and clearing the CMOS memory using the jumper on the system board. If the problem continues, try another power supply. Finally you may need to replace the system board.

There is something else wrong like bad RAM, or a failed CPU fan. Open it. Turn on and verify the CPU fan is running. If not fix the fan immediately before the CPU fry's.

Emachine - T6420 - Monitor on stand by, no picture, fan running non stop, hard drive power on, screen blank, monitor in yellow not green the programs would end after 10 seconds---if you opened...


Most likely your video card is broken. To check if the motherboard isnt broken either, I would suggest you test usb, sound, and other features of the motherboard.
 If your motherboard isnt broken then you have to buy a "pci-e graphics card" at your local store. Shouldnt cost much, about $40-70. Hope that helps.

My Emachines_w2888 will not boot up. I get a, (NO SIGNAL INPUT).


If all you have done is upgrade the memory, take out one stick of memory and see if the computer will start up. If it acts the same way it has been acting, take out the other stick of memory and put the first stick of memory back in. You could have a bad stick of memory. Does the computer make any beeping noises when you try to start it? Those beeps are the BIOS way of telling you there is a problem. One BIOS beep means the system is starting if you have more than one beep, there could be a problem, the number of beeps along with the brand of BIOS will give you a clue as to what the problem is. Once you know the number of beeps and the brand of BIOS you can search the Internet for what the problem might be. Your monitor showing "NO SIGNAL INPUT" is its way of saying "I'm ok but something else is wrong".

Good luck

Emachines model 780 monitor comes on for one second then goes blank


CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.
