Re: Emachine help

Hi. could be a few things
1st thing if theres no power going to the base unit, the power supply is gone will cost about £20 for a new one.
2nd thing it could be graphics card, memory needs refitting. ie take them out and refitting them usually fixes it.
theres a few other things it could be but less likely. i suggest trying the above..

have a great new year

Try a different monitor. Most likely your having operating system issues that cause the monitor to do this.
Also - try this - As you turn the machine on tap the DELETE key - this will take you to the DOS platform of the computer. If the screen changes to anything you have operating system issues. Try a repair with the original disk or the operating system disk that was last installed.

Sounds like a video error. It may be caused also by a bad memory, but I suspect problems with video.

My emachine will turn on and run without doing anything. The monitor states no signal.

Either the VGA cable (cable from your monitor to computer) or VGA port on your computer is faulty. Try connecting another monitor to your computer to determine the problem. If the other monitor works, then your VGA cable is faulty. If the other monitor doesn't work, the VGA port is faulty. Hope that helps.

When you say out, do you mean they are broken, or just disconnected? Most of these computers have a plug on the end of the wires to the front panel and it just plugs into the system board. If you look at the board you'll see where the front panel wires go. Sometimes it's hard to read the small type, but there are labels on the board that tell you what connector does what.
