Anything atapi is usually dvd or cd rom based.
it appears you have both the dvd and hard drive on the same ide cable. as this isn't a continuation of the original message i'll have to ask if that is a laptop.
legacy at least with operating systems would be win 95 98 etc. unless you are using those particular o/s leave it disabled.

I presume you are in the bios at the moment ?

Dark blue ink splodge on my computer screen

Check the warranty - I recently got an acer lcd from a friend (purchased as package deal like a eMachine), he bought a new one, and found it was still under warranty.
Try "Auto Reset" on the monitor setup panel, on monitor - not on computer.
I forgot the proper name but one of the light emitting diodes might have gone bad which causes lines, streaks and blobs (same as on laptop screens).

How to connect emachine flat monitor to my computer?


It sounds as if you are missing the power cord for the monitor. If the cord did not come with your monitor/PC, you can pick one up at any Radio Shack or electronics store. If you could forward me your eMachine model number as well as the monitor model number, I will see if I can better solve this for you without you having to spend anymore money.
