If you do not get a screen with a LCD monitor its likely you have a inverter problem or BACKLIGHT problem. you might need to replace the LCD backlight or replace the monitor on the desktop.
check to see if the laptop can get a picture by plugging in a monitor to it, im sure theres a connection for external monitor.

theres also a FN (function key) command to switch from lcd to external monitor. always test before commiting to replacing a monitor.

The desktop, you might want to test another monitor on the desktop just to be sure the monitor is gone or dead. if you see on the monitor a OSD saying "No power or No Signal" or you can pull up the OSD(on screen display menu). then the monitor is not dead.

might be the computer even though the computer powers up doesnt always mean the computer is working.

i would check the motherboard for blown capacitors or funky smelling(burnt plastic)aroma. Make sure the computer is off before checking.

get back to us!

thanks

File 5391ada02 can't be found....monitor is black


Pick up a second hand monitor, test your system to see if a signal comes through i.e. you have image on screen. before you do a recovery, perform a back up and restore, to a previous date & time. You may just have a bad monitor.

eMachines flat-screen monitors offer high quality at low cost.

Plug the eMachines monitor's power cable into a working AC outlet.
Press the monitor's power button.

Green LEDs denote a working connection..

Perform a monitor self-test.
Switch off the monitor.
Unplug the video cable from the monitor.
Press the eMachines monitor's power button.
An eMachines logo, Windows logo or "no signal" message indicates that the monitor is working properly.

Plug the eMachines monitor's video cable into the video port on the computer.

Please check the cable that connects the monitor to the video card. Reseat the cable, the issue might be a loose connection. You can also try a known good monitor to isolate if it's the video card or monitor that is causing the problem. Something is preventing the monitor from receiving signals from the video card, hence the "no signal" message.

Flat screen monitor functioning strangely


Sounds like there maybe bad caps on the power board in the LCD. Try a different monitor on your computer and if the known working monitor comes on with the computer and behaves properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the known working monitor acts strange as well then you know its a problem with the video card. Let me know what happens.

Monitor does not display picture,only the mouse pointer


If you're seeing only the mouse pointer it means there is likely a problem with your hard drive. Perhaps windows has a bad file. Has anything changed recently? Any new programs? A short? a strange smell?

Emachines model 780 monitor comes on for one second then goes blank


CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.

My emachine won't work at all i don't even get the windows picture it keeps going to setup in the blue color then black


Is the monitor plugged in properly?
Can you get to the BIOS? --> Does it display the words on the screen during the boot process before the Windows Splash screen?
I'm not sure what setup in the blue color means. If it's the BSOD or Blue Screen of death then let it cool (power it off) and boot again later. Perhaps a heat issue. If you do actually get it to boot copy your most critical data off the hard drive quickly.
Could be a lot of things.
