    You always need to include model numbers of the device causing problems, not only the brand.
    Some eMachines systems use a board with integrated video, and this can even be disabled to allow the use of an add-on PCI video card.
    Before you proceed, I recommend borrowing a friend's monitor and try your system with it or bring your monitor to another computer and plug it into a different PC.
    Right now, you don't know which has failed; the PC or the monitor.
    Most monitors disconnected from the computer will flash a warning box on the screen when power is supplied that will tell you the monitor is working but that there is no input signal.
    If you are not getting such a message, the monitor is likely dead.

Turn on
press Ctrl+Alt+Delete (Task Manager)
click applications tab
click "New Task"
type in > explorer.exe
click okay
If boots download, install, update, and run malwarebytes free version. Delete anything it catches. If log shows registry infection problem should be solved. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.
Hope it helps

As the computer boots. The screen goes black. Nothing happens


When you mention boots, Is the computer able to POST a message to the screen or do you mean switching the computer on and there nothing POST to the screen. If your computer is able to post and then you get a black screen after that with possibly a flashing underscore symbol, then you are missing a O.s or your harddrive is currupted. If nothing is POST to the screen once the computer is turned on, then there could be couple of culprit that is causing this defect to RAM memory error, VGA, CPU, or the Motherboard itself..... The only way to test what is actually wrong is to have other hardware compatiable to test the computer itself.... would reccommend you taking it in to a computer shop since they have diagnositc tools, unless you have other computer hardware to test this with.

Sounds like a software error. When the screen has been blaxk for a minute or two try hitting control+alt+del and use the task manager to start the process explorer.exe if so then there is a registry or windows error and needs to be repaired.

IMAC SCREEN FREEZES OR GOES BLACK.


same thing happens to me - most of the time it will just randomly freeze; occasionally i get an unresponsive black screen. this 24' aluminum imac usually has startup problems also - sometimes it will "gong" and nothing else; sometimes the apple logo will come up and then nothing else; sometimes it will load the logo and then spin for a few seconds and then freeze - the only option is to manually shut down. there is no rhyme or reason to it

Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only


During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

Problem restarting, "press r"


  1. Start the laptop
  2. when the logo screen turns black start pressing F8 a few times.
  3. A Windows Boot Options screen should show on the screen
  4. If you see the Windows Logo (the normal thing when Windows loads, then press reset and try again
  5. At the Windows Boot Options screen select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter twice
It "should" now load normally, if not then..
  1. Replace step 5 above with "Safe Mode" and see if that loads all the way through. If so, then restart and see if its OK now.
If not, then post back with any error messages and we can look at something else.
