Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

T3256 The problem that I'm having is, when I turn on my computer, it starts to boot up, then I hear a click & my monitor goes blank & displays a "no signal" message. The power is still on in the tower, but nothing else. Do I need a new motherboard, processor, or what? Thank You for your time, Gena

    I bought a new power supply & installed it. Unfortunately, it didn't fix the problem. The monitor still went blank within a few seconds of turning it on. If you can think of anything else that might help, let me know. Thanks for your time, Tolegirl

    I have exactly the same problem. Tried with another monitor - no luck.

    Mine sometime crashes straight after the big e display, other times after selecting safe mode etc. Sometimes it even gets to the windows xp startup screen and either goes black"no signal" or just freezes.

Sounds like you may need a new power supply for your computer.

Here's a link for reference

If you are not comfortable taking your pc apart you should take it to a repair shop.

That sounds like a software problem like a virus or a damaged driver or bios. if any hardware is to blame it would be your video card(the peice that you plug your monitor into) if this is sodered directly into your motherboard take it to a repar shop or if your feeling abitious replace it yourself. it shouldnt cost anymore than 50 dollars for the repair. 100 if the video card is removable(but on the upside that means that your getting something 3times or more powerful than the one your computer origonally came with and will maximize your capibility).

I have a Samsung SuncMaster 940BW 19'' LCD Monitor. It's a geat Monitor in my humble opinion in everything, except that since i got it i have one problem with it, and it wasnt possible for me...


This is a common problem with monitors when changing resolution. What probably happened is you may have tried to change the resolution, or an application changed the resolution, to an incompatible resolution.

For example, if you have a tiny little screen it can't display that huge resolution that a 32 inch monitor has. So, your monitor is stuck in that wrong resolution.

To fix this problem, you need to boot into Safe Mode. Restart your computer, and as it is booting up tap F8 a bunch of times, and then select Boot into Safe Mode.

When it boots up, right click on the desktop, click Properties (Windows XP) or Screen Resolution (Windows 7). When the window pops up, click Settings (if on Windows XP, if on Windows 7 skip to next step). From this window, change the resolution back to the basic 800 x 600 screen resolution.

Now, reboot your computer normally. You should be able to see the desktop. Now, you can do the same thing that you did in safe mode and turn up your resolution. BUT, when you change it, if the screen goes BLANK again, DO NOT press anything. After 15 seconds it should go back, and you can try a lower resolution.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using FixYa.

You may try the following steps:

Boot the computer in safe mode.
While booting press the F8 key and on the Windows Advance boot screen, select safe mode and press enter.
Once you are on the logon screen, select Administrator account.
Click on Start and rightl click on My computer, then click properties
Go to hardware tab and click on Device manager.
In the device manager look for Display adapter, Click on the + sign, right click on the listed devices and uninstall.
Now you should be able to boot the computer in normal mode.

If the power light does not turn color and stay's green on startup, it is not a power problem. It is most likely the inverter. If the unit is in warranty, send it out ASAP. Contact HP customer care by email and have the issue logged in.
If in warranty, they will send you a box by FedX second day and have repaired.
This is a 19" monitor and will not be worth paying for repairs if not in warranty.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

LCD monitor goes blank


It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
