Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

When i turn the computer on, the monitor does not turn on. If i turn the monitor, off and on again, it tells me it has no signal. I have checked the cables, and they are fitted in correctly and screwed in. Also I have tried using another monitor (which was my last one and it worked) and the same thing happened, so im thinking it hasn't got anything to do with the monitor. Any clues?

My gateway computer power light blinks and moniter says no signal.turn it off held then power button on for 30 seconds.then turned it back on.same as before.


Hello,
I don't think this has anything to do with the monitor since it is showing "no signal". this is an indication that the monitor is working.
Problem is from the connection between the computer and the monitor or from the computer itself.
Check the VGA cable and make sure it is firmly fixed into the computer and monitor.
Open the computer case, disconnect the keyboard, mouse, and every other thing apart from the VGA cord, then try again.
If there is still no signal, turn computer off again, remove it's power cord, then remove the system Ram, clean it and fix it back in. Then make sure the VGA card is well fixed into the mother board. After that, connect only he VGA cord and try again.
If non of the above seems to work, connect the computer to another monitor, and connect the monitor to another computer in other to confirm which is having a fault so that we can focus on it.
Keep me posted.
Good luck.

My monitor suddenly went black when I awoke it from standby and it only states "video input 1 D - SUB NO SIGNAL" each time I turn the moniitor off an on again. I checked all connectivity to the...


My suggestion is going to be if you have another computer that you can hook up to the monitor and see if it works for it then the problem would be not the monitor but your computer. As it is telling you that it is not recieving a signal. If it still doesn't work then it will be something wrong with the monitor or the cable connecting it.

When turned off for the night, it takes forever for monitor to turn on, the lights on the power button constantly change colors before the screen will work. Is this computer or monitor related?


Hi,
Maybe your monitor's having trouble getting power. Try plugging it out, and then in again. If that's not working, call you're monitor's manufacturer (if you don't know the number, try searching on the internet). Or maybe that's not the case. Maybe your PC takes time sending the signal to monitor. Call the computer's manufacturer (if you don't know the number, try searching on the internet). Hope that helps,
Daniel

Check signal cable


There is no problem. The monitor is telling you that it's not receiving a signal. The reason there is no signal is because your computer is turned off, so it's telling the truth. :D
The monitor should go into idle mode on its own, so you won't see that message for very long. It's annoying, but doesn't cause any real problems. You can save even more energy by shutting off your monitor entirely after you shut down your computer. This will make the message go away and also save money on your electricity bill!

Says No Signal but I clearly just pluggd it in and turned it on, and yes my computer is on


The "no signal" message is telling you there is no output from the computer. The output signal switches on the monitor, so if not there, check your cables and connections. If you have another monitor, try connecting it instead, and see if it works.This is an unusual problem, so keep trying. Connect the monitor to another computer, such as a laptop, and see if it works. If the monitor on another computer works, obviously it the first computer. If the first computer works with the second monitor, it's the first monitor.

Data is not sent to the monitor


The first thing to do is to pay attention for "beep" when your press the power button (or the reset button) to turn the computer on or reboot it. The beeps that a PC makes tells you a lot about the state of your computer. I couldn't quote for you the exact beeps to listen for, but your manual for your motherboard may tell you. Different beep pattersn tell you what is wrong with a computer.

I think for many common motherboards it is something like 4 beeps to tell you the graphics card has failed. Don't quote me, but that is at least along the lines of how it works if not the exact number.

If you're getting no display after starting your computer make sure you hear one beep. Then, listen for other activity. If you're computer has a floppy drive, listen for the 'floppy seek'. Otherwise, listen for hard drive activity. If it sounds as though there's activity along those lines but still no signal/display on the monitor perhaps check the cable between your PC and the monitor. Never hurts to just make sure the monitor is turned on of course.

If your monitor is on, and the cables are connected securely I wold restart the computer again and check for the beeps. I would be certain to count them and check the manual. Your graphics card may have failed if you hear abnormal beeps (more than one as one is usually the healthy indicator). If you hear no beeps then the PC is not even getting in as far as testing it's devices and could quite possibly be a motherboard failure.

Monitor shows ''NO SIGNAL''


This is normal. The monitor is telling you it is not getting a signal from the computer, which is true because you've turned off the computer. The monitor power is still on, however. The monitor power is not controlled by the computer power switch. Just turn it off with its power switch after you shut off the computer.
