E-machine HD Monitor Blue Flashing light on/off Bottom Screen Black, But other Monitor works

No monitor model told no PC model told no OS told also PCs with wrong drivers, the sleep mode fails. so turn off sleep fully in the control panel + power settings go to performance mode.;the blow flashing light means I AM sleeping but THERE ARE ONLY 3 WAYS TO END SLEEP ON A DESKTOP(NO NOT FIDDLING A MONITOR) wiggle the mouse or click it but of USB ports are allowed sleep that fails. hard. so never allow usb to sleep. then way 2, hammer the space bar ,keyhboard or the ESC key see PC exit sleep, if USB is allowed to sleep (ports)it too fails and last the power button pushed in for 10second and released forces a sick PC, (bad drivers that kill sleep features) this act resets the PC and reboots. why not just turn off all sleep modes. and just allow the monitor to sleep and or power it off. not used. also page in your manual states (see resume) and never allow Hibernate at all it is super buggy or any deeper state. "Press this button to turn the power on or off. You can also configure the power button to operate in Standby/Resume mode or Hibernate mode. The power indicator lights when the computer is turned on." why not test the PC with newer monitor 2011 newer LED back lighted monitor to be sure your older monitor is not bad as seen here in this flash light test. flash-glow-magic2-undefined-undefined-0_3.jpg rCAP learn to disable all forms of sleep modes, ALL no exceptions. then see if this works if it does you just learned your drivers are bad. or test the PC with a newer monitor 2012 is LED for sure) learn that bad drivers most times make sleep fail no oS told at all, not even a tiny clue is this XP the versus magnet from H3LL>? or worse upgraded to vista and drivers are all no good for vista. never up grade any os lacking oem support for all drivers. newer. vast PCs have no upgrade path at and guess what emachine is infamous for that fact. they stink this way but sure wins the dirt chip cost war, sure. the fast resume is on the power button to set right] the fast press is resume from sleep, the but is programable. if drivers are wrong all this fails hard,

Emachine had an alarm, left it off for awhile and now no alarm but monitor won't stay on. Another monitor says override

that was wrong typed wrong is not overide but over-range. no monitor told or PC at all. but if you set the pC to resolution over what the monitor can do the monitor , shows overange and goes to sleep, black screened VGA???????? OLD monitors used on newer PCs do that, also if Microsoft OS, is it, not told but newer OS has higher default resolutions making all monitors old fail hard. the quick cure is put your PC into SAFEmod. w7 down is F8 hotkey goes to 800x600 resolution most old monitors can do. some mon can only do 1024x768 max. frankly read the monitors manual first. it sets upper limits> !!!! RTM read the manual on your unstated monitor vast , 1998 to now. set the PC to the highest resolution your monitor allows. or call a tech to your home have them fix this easy. it is a simple problem. next time post model of PC and monitor and we can go DIRECTY to the problem. even post photos of errors to get them correct,.'

Mediashield rom bios 6.33 detecting array on the my screen

NO monitor told at all. nor any PC at all model told some kind of desktop sure, in photo above, but what/? NO TOLD NO OS told ether and newer OS does not run on N_force chipsets. that error is pure NVIDIA software for GPU same. my wild guess is COIN cell battery dead and bios now lost 128bits of config data out of NVRAM CMOS> and goes berserk as all do like that. and the bits that control BIOS RAID ARRAY are gone ,lost so it lies to you now (expected). thinking RAID is lost but was never ever used or enabled by you ever. BINGO CHAOS , BINGO FOR COIN easy no? easy peasy lemon squeezy (new coin day) MediaShield Rom BIOS 9.83 Copyright © 2007 nvidia corp detecting arrays..(means RAID drive system a HW option in this chip set) it's a feature on vast PC and for sure business workstations and real servers. hw. NO PC told so i fact I can know how old the PC is. nor that dead coin cell at 5 to 7 years old and ignored that long.
  1. a new coin fitted first.
  2. reset bios inside bios
  3. turn off RAID (yeah)
  4. set time and date
  5. set boot order to HDD0 first.
  6. save key bios.
  7. exit bios
cold boot now cured/ fixed. my wild guess a super old desktop, with DOA/EOL Nforce chip set that has no support at all now, and coin cell is dead. and for sure is Nforce there (AMD chip set , now fully EOL) the raid hot key is f10 , given to emachine bios makers for Nvidia Nforce relic RAID chip. next time tell what PC this is and get faster, shorter and 10x more accurate answers. The other answer is no hackers it is you not knowing what RAID means and not servicing the COIN cell before it fails. RAID if enabled has 2 purposes makes 2 drives or more, run super fast,than just 1. or my RAID 6 mode to run 8 drives and 2 can fail and no data loss at all and runs perfectly (tad slower) "called production mode by geeks" production means never goes down like servers use so well.. that is it lacking PC model. now the reverse of all that Say it was raid the rules are so raid common, he bios or raid F10 setups must show a RAID array there. or you make one now. the set setup a RAID now, There. say RAID 1 or ? then save and cold boot and install the OS to the virtual drive raid0 if before the raid was working F10 into raid and enable it again after new coin cell and safe exit F10 and now set boot order to RAID ARRAY 0 OR AS IT WAS BEFORE THE LOSS. (COMMON POST ON TOPIC) You do not have the bios set correctly for the installer to sense it is available for use. Enable raid mode in bios setup. nForce Drivers WILL install the MediaSheild software!!!!!!!!!! The sata hdd's must also be configured into a NVidia Stripe at least using the bios sata/raid config. tool(F10 on my board) then nForce driver install should offer it up. I have no problems installing or removing EVEN ON MediaSheild from Dualboot XP-SP2 X86 or Vista x86.

I have a e system desktop the clock keeps running late

Computers have an internal battery on the motherboard that helpd the board retain certain data when the computer is off. If the battery is low or dead it will cause this problem. The easiest way to replace the battery is to open the side of the computer when it is off and remove the battery from the battery holder on the motherboard. The battery looks just like a watch battery. Replace it with the same kind of battery (available at most drug stores) once you have replaced it turn on your computer and reset your clock.

Why does my mouse automatically scrolls up or down on my screeen

Your mouse might be bad or you could have a virus or infection that has hijacked your mouse. Boot up into safe mode and see if the mouse is ok. Then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. When it boots up, open your internet browser and download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine. If the above steps does not fix the problem: Try another mouse and see if it scrolls.

When i play online games why is it so slow

You are right when you say it's really slow when you play games online, 1. The Game server is accessing by you through wires and network devices, so this makes the games slow. If the game is installed in your pc, there's should be no speed problem, 2. Network bandwidth will be accumulated by the game when you run the program, so don't take tension,... we are facing the same problem and it's just normal. There's nothing different. Good luck
