Hi foxy37, so what you mean is that you have no display on your monitor? I can only ask you to check a few basic things & than I'll need you to post the model number for your e-machine so I can suggest other information.
1. First check that the monitor cable is securely connected at both ends (monitor & PC), & that the monitor's power cord is plugged in & is turned on.
2. The last time you recall running the PC did you or anyone else install any software? Was any one inside the PC? Did the PC run correctly? Now I'll need to know what model your e-machine is, so I can go here & check what you may need to do to check the PC.

    Hello foxy37, thanks for the updated information. Concerning your monitor. You must turn on the monitor. The light on the monitor will turn green when first powered on & a few seconds after turning green if there is not a video single coming from the PC the light will change color to amber. (this is normal for all monitors). Still have your PC manual? Turn to pg. 2-2 & check the back of the power supply, there is a red slide switch. It should be set to read 115v.

    When you press the power button on the e-machine W2040, watch the front of the PC. See pg. 1-1. You should see the power button turn green (it's not very bright). You should also see a smaller (red) flashing led. This is your hard drive is working/running. Your monitor's light should go from amber to green. Can you borrow a monitor from a friend just to see if your monitor is bad? If you have checked everything from my last post & you also tried another monitor than it is possible your video adapter is bad. If you have never been inside a computer before than I strongly suggest you take your PC to a service center. I can not talk you through trouble shooting the internales with out you hurting yourself or the PC.

Plug the computer's power cable firmly into a working AC outlet. Press the computer's power button.

Check the LEDs on the front of the computer case to confirm that the computer receives power. Plug the eMachines monitor's power cable into a working AC outlet. Press the monitor's power button. Check the LEDs on the front bezel or power button of the eMachines monitor to confirm that the monitor receives power. Orange or blinking LEDs indicate low power or no signal. Green LEDs denote a working connection.. Perform a monitor self-test. Switch off the monitor. Unplug the video cable from the monitor. Press the eMachines monitor's power button. An eMachines logo, Windows logo or "no signal" message indicates that the monitor is working properly. Plug the eMachines monitor's video cable into the video port on the computer.

Press the eMachines monitor's input button to change the monitor's setting to match the computer port used. Set your monitor to DVI if connected to your computer's DVI port. Set your monitor to VGA if connected to your computer's VGA port. Connect the eMachines monitor to a known working computer with a known working video cable if the problem persists. Contact Gateway, eMachines manufacturer, if the monitor issue is not resolved. Hope this helps.
