Question about Computers & Internet

Using my emachine T6542. Went to get a cup of coffee. Took me 15 minutes. When I return, no more signal in my monitor. All I hear are fans of the CPU and power supply. Opened the PC box. No loose parts. What could be the problem with that?

    Thanks for the solution you have given. But, that was not the case. I do that all the time. This last time, i used it, when I came back, can't use it anymore. This happened more than a week ago. Tried turning my computer on many times. No monitor signal, usb led lights are off, even the keyboard light is off. All I could see and hear are fans of the power supply and the CPU. Could it be my motherboard? that gave up. I need all the help I could get. This emachine is less than 2 years since I bought it. No more warranty. Not ready to buy a new one. I go online using my friends' connections to get help. THANKS

    I have this same emachine and it just started doing the same thing when I try to start it up - the fans run at high speed and the DVD drive seems to function (light blinks & tray functions), but nothing else works and the monitor has no signal. I cleaned out all the dust, removed the memory card and power supply to check for loose connections, but that didn't have any effect. After trying multiple times, I managed to power it up once, ran a full virus scan and got all my files onto a CD-ROM.Then it wouldn't restart, even when I tried a Windows "soft" restart.

    I noticed on another forum, that one user commented on how hot this model was running internally and claimed that it would probably fry the motherboard at that temperature. Could that be what is happening? There was a lot of dust in my vents, which could have exacerbated this condition.

This could be a power saving issue. The computer may be set to go into power saving. When you come back and find your computer in this state, shake your mouse and see if it brings it back. If it doesn't, then press the power button of the CPU once and it should come on right where you left it.

If none of this helps, then your computer may be having another problem. Let me know

If its a flat screen monitor ?

eMachines flat-screen monitors offer high quality at low cost. eMachines flat-screen monitors are compatible with most brands of PCs. Issues with eMachines flat-screen monitors can arise from faulty power sources, cable problems and incompatible settings. These issues can be resolved by testing step-by-step each possible cause.

Plug the computer's power cable firmly into a working AC outlet. Press the computer's power button.

Check the LEDs on the front of the computer case to confirm that the computer receives power. Plug the eMachines monitor's power cable into a working AC outlet. Press the monitor's power button. Check the LEDs on the front bezel or power button of the eMachines monitor to confirm that the monitor receives power. Orange or blinking LEDs indicate low power or no signal. 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. Attach the monitor's included DVI-to-VGA adapter to the monitor's VGA cable if your computer has a DVI port (15 or 25 pin-slots with 1 side slot) in place of a VGA port (15 pin-slots, no side slot). Press the eMachines monitor's input button to change the monitor's setting to match the computer port used. Set your monitor to DVI if connected to your computer's DVI port. Set your monitor to VGA if connected to your computer's VGA port. Connect the eMachines monitor to a known working computer with a known working video cable if the problem persists. Contact Gateway, eMachines manufacturer, if the monitor issue is not resolved. Hope this helps.

We have an FTX41 12 cup mr coffee maker. Suddenly all the water we pour in comes out the bottom all over the counter. What do we do?

Ours (FTX41) did this, made a pot of coffee in the morning just fine then a few hours later we went to make another and the water just poured out the bottom. I took out the 6 screws (4 philips and 2 torx under the rubber feet). When I took off the bottom one of the hoses to the heating element had come off. I put it back on and everything worked fine. It took about 15 min. to fix and put back together. Poor design on the hose connection, no clamps of any kind.

No screen

MOST likely the monitor is bad if you don't hear any beeps when booting up.

If you unplug the monitor the screen should say NO SIGNAL

My monitor suddenly lost signal and hasn't returned

do you mean the processor fan that is located near on the left top corner on the motherboard? if that stopped working then turn of your pc immediately. probably the cpu overheated. if that fan does not work replace it immediately as it will burn the cpu.

My dads e-machine 3630 is only a year old and has been used very little. Yesterday when he turned it on you could hear the fan running really loud and the monitor briefly flashed "no signal" but then went...

Are you sure it was the fan? Was there any type of clicking noise present? If so it points to your HDD... Also check to see if your video card is fully seated in its slot.
