Sounds like a bad video adapter. I'm assuming your emachines has an integrated video adapter. Put in a video card (with the power plug pulled out! Touch the bare metal frame of the computer with your hand before inserting the video card into the agp or pci slot Don't touch the motherboard). If you get video, you may or may not need to install drivers after that. XP has a lot of video drivers, but lacks quite a few of them, too.

What's your problem?i have a dell optiplex 755 (tower).. it was working fine.. but one day when switched it on,, it doesnt behave normal.. and no screen was showing on the monitor.. the pc was sho


Welcome to the world of Windows 7. Don't you miss Windows XP? LOL, Windows 7 is a nightmare just like Vista.

Anyway I think it's your Memory. You mentioned moving the memory chips around, but you didn't mention trying one at a time. I think one of them is bad.

Memory ChipRemove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.Try just working with one of them in Slot 1 and swap them out in just Slot 1.

Oh, I just thought of something else, Maybe you have bad Capacitors on the motherboard. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case. Take a flash light and look inside the computer at the capacitors. They look like little Battery Towers. If any of them are spewing corrosion out of them, they can cause the computer to go crazy just like yours is doing.

I have a problem with my computer emachines j4501 desktop pc windows vista home premium..after the windows logo the monitor turn blank...but the cpu is still on.... what will i do...


If you can see the windows logo screen both your computer and monitor is working, possible problem could be that the display settings are set to high that your monitor is unable to handle it. Restart computer and keep tapping F8 key. This will take you to the advanced options menu In the list of options here choose enable low resolution mode and hit enter (you can only use your keyboard to choose - use the up / down arrow key) once you enter windows low res mode change it to 800 X 600 and restart the computer Once you are in the right mode now change the display settings accordingly.

Pc has power but no response


Connect the video monitor to another working system to see if your monitor is the cause for your dilema.

If the computer logo appears when you first boot up, but it blanks out after the windows logo, then it would be an issue with your installation of windows and may be in need of a reload.

But again, if the monitor is completely black, I would test out the monitor on another machine.

Good Luck

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.

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.

Still having trouble with EMachines T3882


I feel your pain. I finally moved my pc to a room with no windows! But seriously, try a different monitor first. See if you can borrow someone's to just try it before you do anything else. If that borrowed monitor works fine, then you know what the problem is. (Which I believe is the problem.) By the way, what started all of your problems?

The monitor setting in windows maybe incorrect. When booting up before you get the windows logo start hitting F8 and then choose safe mode. If your monitor works in windows there then check the monitors settings. You may have a driver issue or a settings issue when in normal windows mode.
