Does the keyboard initialize?
If it does, (the caps lock/num lock lights flas, then the system seems to be working. In thet case, check the connection to the monitor then check the VGA board. If it doesn't initialize, you probably have a mother board fault.
Hope this helps.

Tower powers on but my monitor, keyboard and mouse don't work


Your system is failing the POST, I think. You'll need to troubleshoot it by opening the case and unplugging everything but the CPU and memory and video. Now power it on. If there still is a problem, try removing one of the sticks of memory.
Once you isolate the problem, you can replace the part that has gone bad.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Okay im having a probblem with my lcd monitor and when i press the button on the tower to turn everything on and then press the on button on the lcd monitor it says minitor is going to sleeep and ive tried...


Sounds like the monitor is not getting a signal from the tower.
Do you have another monitor/LCD screen that you plug into your tower? That will tell you if the LCD is the issue or the tower.
If it is the tower that is at fault, then you need to try and figure out if your video is separate from your motherboard. Hopefully it is separate, that way you can get that replaced. If not, then it means that your video card is integrated onto your motherboard which is much expensive to get fixed.
Hope this helps.

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..

Took cover off my tower and blew out the dust and when I hooked it all back up my monitor said no signal and light on my mouse just flashes


Lets tackle the monitor first: A no signal message indicates one of two things;
  • The video card isn't properly seated; (if the video card is on board skip to next step) just moving the video cable on the monitor to unplug it is enough to unseat the video card. Open the tower again and make sure the card is firmly in place.
  • If the video is onboard, the plug may not be firmly in place. Check the screws that hold the plug in place and see if they are turned as far as they will go; there's a chance the plug is only partially making contact giving you the no signal message
As far as the mouse goes, the only reason the machine won't recognize the mouse would be a faulty connection in the USB port. Assuming no damage was done while blowing the dust out, double check the USB port, maybe even changing ports to see if the mouse comes back. If your machine is anything like mine, space behind the tower can get kinda cramped and just putting it back into place and reconnecting the power cord can pull just enough on the lines to pull a line just enough to disrupt your connection.

Hope this answers your questions. Best of luck.

Montiors shut off


if the monitor goes into standbye when you plug it into the computer , it generally means there is NO signal coming from your video adaptor.
Plug the old monitor in , if it works, ide suspect the new monitor(s) are not working correctly.
if it doesnt work , you need to restart the computer in safe mode by repettitively tapping the f8 button as the computer starts, before it says "starting windows".
If you have a signal on your monitor in safe mode, then most likely you have a bad or corrupted video driver and it will need to be updated.
if you have no video in safe mode , you will need to remove the cover and physiclly check that all add-in card power cables and memory chips are squarly seatied in there slots. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE COMPUTER AND DISCHARGE ANY STAIC BUILDUP IN YOURSELF BY GROUNDING (TOUCHING) SOMETHING METAL BEFORE YOU TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE THE COMPUTER.

AFTER YOU CHECK THESE THINGS AND TRECONNECT THE POWER AND TRY TO START......POST AGAIN HERE
