    I agree--your computer is not starting up. You'll need to do some further troubleshooting.
    How good are you at taking the computer apart so we can solve it?

You may have a failed motherboard or a failing/failed power supply unit (PSU) then. Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything. The dead giveaway is the fact that you are not getting anything after the "splash" screen. There are a few companies that will repair broken capacitor issues. Also if you add a bunch of extra components (bigger video cards, more drives, etc) without upgrading the power supply you can suffer underpowered situations and that can cause internal parts to fail.
To eliminate some other stuff you could remove the memory and disconnect all the power plugs from the drives and then try to start it up. If it does not change the behavior at all (no beeps, no change in flashing lights or move past the e-machines display) then you probably have motherboard issues. If you have another PSU that has the same or greater output watts you can try replacing that first. Make sure when disconnecting the memory chips (sticks) that you touch the metal on the inside of the case first to discharge static electricity. If it does change the behavior add 1 component or item back at a time to see what you can find out. Post back with what you find. And remember a bad PSU does not mean no power, just not enough to run the computer. Let us know.

Your video card in your computer is better than your monitor. That is good though as we can just set the video resolution lower to accommodate your poorer monitor. Do you need help doing that? If so please supply Operating system type, such as Win XP Pro, Win 7 Pro....

Try using a different monitor or use that monitor on a different computer to see if the monitor is bad. It shouldn't have anything to do with your CMOS battery. I'd check to make sure the monitor itself is good before I go tearing my computer apart. Let me know how it goes and maybe we can get it figured out.

Color on monitor


First, have you degaussed the unit to stop any magnetic interference?

Do you use software to change monitor settings or do you use the on screen display menu on the monitor?

Most lcd's have a button for menu on the lcd. This can be used to adjust color, contrast, brightness, degauss, as well as screen position and size.

Most Monitors. Have A Seperate Power Cord.
They vary in shape and size. 2 pin 3pin et,c.
Have a good look at the back, and check. you should have a power connector socket inlet. And a cable out socket, to connect Monitor To Sound Card On The Back of the Desktop.
These can be located on the back underside of the monitor.
if in doubt search for your monitor make and model on the net, and try to get some instructions.
hope this helps Mike.
