When a computer starts up it runs Power On Self Tests (POST). When it finds a problem and can not continue it beeps out a code of long and/or short beeps. Run a web search for beep error code or POST beep errors. Most likly issues are memory or a video card that is not fully seated / making contact.

one of your ports is not working or your ram is not seated. thus beeping. On mine once I seated my ram the beeping stopped and I could continue.. If you say there is no signal to the monitor maybe the video card is bad. do you have a spare to throw in and try. Then hook it to the internet, either with an ethernet or wireless adapter and have it find your driver and maybe that will work.

No signal to monitor


Check ALL cables, connections, try another monitor/cable. You didn't provide the Model of eMachine? Does it have a PCI Graphics Card? Reseat Card.

Please check the cable that connects the monitor to the video card. Reseat the cable, the issue might be a loose connection. You can also try a known good monitor to isolate if it's the video card or monitor that is causing the problem. Something is preventing the monitor from receiving signals from the video card, hence the "no signal" message.

My emachine desktop monitor keeps cutting on and off by itself. What should I do?...it's really aggravating.


Hi,

There are three possible reasons for the issue:
1. Monitor power cable is loose
2. Video Adapter is faulty
3. Monitor capacitor is gone bad

Please try the below steps to diagnose the issue:
1. Check the power cable on the back on Monitor, if connected properly, like connect the power cord on a different Wall outlet
2. Unplug the signal cable from the video adapter and replug it. Also, check a different monitor (if any) on the Tower.
3. If the above steps fails, then the issue is with the monitor, it is going for repair.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

No signal to monitor. No beeps at start up. Fans running. New video card installed (after issue began) monitor & cord are working fine (have checked both with other computer)


There might be a problem with your RAM you may check your RAM and clean it with a cotton cloth and fix it again or change your RAM and see
Or the problem can also be with your moniter
thanks

When I start my computer, the monitor shows the message "No Signal R G B" The colors are off. I get Blue, no red and a distorted green. Sometimes the colors are perfect. It's a 15" TFT LCD monitor


If all connections are tight. See if someone has a laptop or another PC to hookup to the monitor to pinpoint if its a video card issue or a monitor related issue.
