    My monitor picture is "out of focus" - almost waving. I can read it but it gives me a headache. The print out of a screen is still great. I checked connections and bought a new monitor cable but the problem is still there.

I had an older mac Mini that would do that and could not use it with that monitor. it worked fine with my G5 powerpc, was probably a video card issue. I got it to work also by connecting with a VGA connection rather than a DVI

  1. If it is possible, connect a different monitor to the computer. If the flickering disappears, it is a fair indication that the monitor is defective, otherwise go to the next step.
  2. Set up the computer and the monitor on a different place in your house. If the flickering disappears now, it is most likely an interference caused by something in the original location. Check for devices which can cause interference.
  3. If the flickering persists, check the setup of your system. If available in the setup, make sure that the option Monitor Type is configured as Colour Non-Interlaced.
If the above steps do not resolve the situation, please contact the Packard Bell Help line for further assistance.

I had this problem. i opened the monitor up and every single one of the capacitors was blown (bulged and leaky). went to frys electronics, bought new ones for 12 bucks. some soldering later and the thing works perfectly.

look into this solution before spending ANY money anywhere else. there are truly MILLIONS of bad capacitors floating around the world. google 'bad capacitors' for instructions or to find someone to do this for you.

You need to try that monitor on another "working" system. If the same problems happens, then it's the monitor. If it doesn't happen, then it's probably your video card.

I dont know how to hookup my monitor to the tower


You will have two plugs coming from your monitor
One will have a blue plug that looks a little different, the other one will have a regular plug which can be plugged into your power surge or into a wall outlet.
The blue one will match up with a port on your tower. If you look on the back of the tower where all of the plugs go you will see one that looks similar but is opposite to the one coming from the monitor. Make sure you turn it to fit then screw it in and you should be good to go

Open the monitor, examine the circuit boards. Look for small components that look like small cans, these are capacitors. If you see any that look bulged on top, then your problem can probably be solved by replacing these. Check out the following sites;

My emachine T1742 desktop will not turn on. When plugged in the power supply's fan turns on, cpu fan doesnt start, both hdd/power led's flicker and pressing power button doesnt power on/off system.


Disconnect all the devices from the computer(tower) including keyboard, mouse, monitor(everything)..even the power cable

Now keep on holding down the power button on the computer tower for 15-30 seconds..

Now release the power button, plug in the power cable, monitor, keyboard, mouse and turn on the computer...

If it works, great!!!

Otherwise, take it for repair..
