Hi , i turned on my desktop & left it so after a while the screen saver started as usuall but withing secs the monitor went blank and blinking as if there is no signal so i checked the signal cable...


your pc probably freezed up for some reason, you can turn it off by keep pressing the power button. After a few seconds it should power down. reboot the computer, he wil probably start a checkdisk and afterwards your computer should be fine. backup your pc asap, and try to find the reason for the freeze (recently installed new drivers/software?)

Plugged up came on about 20 minutes later shut down and went to a yellow blinking mode monitor stays yellow i unplug monitor from cpu and works good do you have any suggestions


Could be getting too hot. Make sure all fans, cooling fins, heat sinks, HDD vents and weep holes are unobstructed and clean. Many computers have a BIOS screen at startup that will display system temp. Start it up and enter the BIOS, check CPU temp. Most PC's will shutdowm or reboot if temp exceeds 140 (this can be adjusted).

If not overheating, could be fault in a memory module, HDD failure, or CPU itself. But that's not that common in the scenario you're talkin about

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..

Possible reasons are bad power switch, bad power supply, bad motherboard, bad memory , device card is not seated properly. Suggest replace power cord to see if still no power, also you may want to remove cover and make sure all your memory and device cards are seated corrrectly. If you get a amber light at the power button, bad motherboard is likely cause

Menu/screen resolution/contrast box keeps popping up on screen.


By what your describing, the board in the monitor that allows you to make changes to the display is going bad (sounds like the settings button). If it were a notebook you might be able to get a board replacement (just an example I know notbooks dont have this feature in the lid). Since it seems that your display is for a desktop, I dont think it would be easy or inexpensive to get a replacement board. You will probably have to get a new monitor. If you want to fix it yourself, pull the monitor apart and get the board out. Try an electronics cleaner and put it back together. If it works, great. If it doesnt, take the board back out and take the board to an electronics (tv) repair shop and see if they can solder in a new button. If that doesnt work your back to buying a new monitor. Hope this helps...

I understand that your cpu is not turning on and the repairer confirmed that it is the issue with the mother board. I suggest you to please check the smps fan spinning or not. If its spinning then then the issue could be with the mother board. If not try changing the power cables.

Next check whether your cd rom light is glowing. Even if there is an issue with the mother board, as the power is supplied by the smps the light  should glow if the light is not glowing its clear that something must be wrong with smps.

Please provide us the result of the above steps so that I could assist you further.
