Emachines w1500 video problems

I have a computer that I am trying to fix for a friend, his wife decided to clean it and well now I have it to fix, here is the problems that I am running across, it will power up just fine and it sounds like it is accessing the hard drive but I have no video output, I have replace the Ram with brand new, I have put in a new video card thinking that is what the problem still no luck, I have read a few posts on here about a reset button but never found on under the battery like it suggests, I am really new at this and dont know what a jumper is to try to do what someone mentioned on here, all I know is that it is not beeping like someone mentioned and other then that it sounds like it is running fine but can not find a reason as to why it is not displaying anything, when a monitor is connected it is stating that the monitor is going into a sleep mode, I have considered replacing the mother board but I cants say that i am a genious in that catagory either, I would not know how to make sure that it has the right bios and things of that nature, I am sure that I dont know even half enough to scratch the surface as to what you people on here know about this kind of problem so I really would appricate any help that I can get thanks for taking the time to read this post thanks again

Ok, First remove the memory you install in. Then take of cmos battery for a couple of minutes. Then replace it.memory too. Make sure you do not power cable on for computer.
Listen this: turn off monitor. turn off desktop and remove all power cables from outlet. First connected monitor cable to computer then plug it to outlet. then connected desktop and turn on. when computer powers on press and hold F8 see if you can see safe mode. Then as me again.

So I have a Emachine t2984 model... It was working perfectly till out of nowhere I heard two beeping sounds coming out the computer then CPU shut completely off. So I went to tried to turn it back on but...

you have done the right thing by cleaning the dust from your computers fans you should continue cleaning the dust from your computer as dust will cause static which can cause a computer lots of unforseen problems
the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive make sure the connections are secure including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your
((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps keep up the good work

3 beeps on boot no screen and boot stops

sounds like the motherboard trying to give you an error code. search beep codes for the type of motherboard you have and then you will get a possible cause of the interruption.

my friend once gave me an old ibm that had a beeping sound preventing it from booting. i googled ibm beep codes and learned that it was a video card error. i swapped the video card and problem solved

Have emachines W2060. Can't get screen to show

Hi Joe,

Could be one of several things:

1) Monitor cable connection loose.
2) Video card (if you have one) not seated, or bad.
3) RAM module not seated, bad, or wrong kind. (If you have not messed with the RAM, probably not one of these.)
4) If your video is integrated into the motherboard (no video card) your motherboard may be bad. Installing a separate card could correct this.
5) Bad monitor.

Have you made any changes to your system when this happened?

Try to connect another monitor/cable to your computer and try your monitor on a friend's computer to see if it works.

Comment back with any updates.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Emachine t3958/d845gvsr mobo

try resetting your bios.. reset it to system defaults.. check all connections properly.. pc to monitor..etc etc..
if you mean no error code by "no bios beeps" then it's okay..
if you mean even the regular single beep after post is not heard than chances are high that your video card has some problem.
