Usually e-machine and other pc's have a factory restore setting set up in case of an error. You can; according to emachine tap the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time when the eMachines logo appears. Press "Enter" and follow the directions on the screen to recover the operating system back to factory condition. I hope that helps, if those keys don't work try F11 at the emachine logo. Good luck.
If you can see the windows logo screen both your computer and monitor is working, possible problem could be that the display settings are set to high that your monitor is unable to handle it.
Restart computer and keep tapping F8 key.
This will take you to the advanced options menu
In the list of options here choose enable low resolution mode and hit enter (you can only use your keyboard to choose - use the up / down arrow key)
once you enter windows low res mode change it to 800 X 600 and restart the computer
Once you are in the right mode now change the display settings accordingly.
It sounds like you may be trying to load a lot of temp files.
Go to CNet.com download Advanced Systems Care "Free Edition"
Follow the directions to clean up your system.
If that does not fix the problem Download a copy of Glary Registry Repair (also free) and run that.
These are two of the best software packages to have.
I have been useing them both for a long time,and have tried others, but these two are far and away the best I have found- and they are free!
Try a different monitor. Most likely your having operating system issues that cause the monitor to do this. Also - try this - As you turn the machine on tap the DELETE key - this will take you to the DOS platform of the computer. If the screen changes to anything you have operating system issues. Try a repair with the original disk or the operating system disk that was last installed.
You might try turnin yer PC off & unplug. Then open the case & carefully remove the battery. Let sit for 5 min. Re-install the battery & put it back together. Plug in & turn on. IF you get a screen givin you the option "last known good configuration" take it
pull the power plug as soon as the emacines logo comes on
and if that doesn't work pull out the power as soon as the first windows logo screen comes on. it should then come on and give you the option to start in safe mode or regular mode, choose safe mode then after it comes on in safe mode restart the cpu
then it should come on in regular mode i don't know why it works for my emachines cpu but it does . i'm looking at downloading a error fixing program because i'm doing this almost when ever i turn off my cpu hope this helps if not reformat your hard drive andput windows on again it worked last time i had this problem.
