Re: my e machine computer

Check the VGA cable - it's usually a blue head, and connects to your PC. Sometimes one or more pins can get bent out of position and cause the monitor to not function.

To fix this problem, simply grab a set of needlenose pliers and reset the pin to its proper upright position. This will take some muscle energy, but does not need to be perfect, as the pin will straighten out fully once re-plugged in.

My emachine computer was working then just stopped, when I tried to turn it back on. the moniter is showing no signal received. I have tried checking the VGA connection, changing it out for another, no...

Try your monitor on another machine - if it is working you have operating system/hard drive/motherboard/memory/heating problems. You must work that out if the monitor is good.

Not reading monitor

please isolate the monitor. try using other good monitor and plug it into your desktop. if the monitor you use doesn't display it means the video card adapter is defective. you have to replace that one. otherwise vice versa.

My emachine moniter keeps on displaying self check , check your pc and signal cable , moniter is working.

There is a problem with your video card / and or motherboard usually when you experience a problem like this.

Open the case, remove the video card from the motherboard, re-install it.

Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

First please check whether the Monitor powering ON or not
the see the colour of light of the monitor i.e, its green or orange or not glowing next see that all the lights showing but constantly flickering or else just see u r VGA or DVI Cable which is connected properly to the CPU if it is ok then remove the cable connect only the monitor to different machine in case still not comming then finally it is a monitor problem or else just check all the connections inside the CPU

In case its monitor problem either it will not power ON or else all the lights will blink constantly that means the refresh rate or the Resolution of the monitor has been changed in case if it is done just connect a different monitor boot in the safe mode by pressing F8 button after entering there change the resolution which will be in the display properties apply and reboot the machine or else turn off u r PC and connect u r Old Monitor and Boot the Machine
