Question about IBM Aptiva E 240 (2158240) PC Desktop
I just recently removed my IBM Aptiva E series 21U from storage hoping I could just plus it in and use it. The computer seems to be working fine however when I plus the monitor (C51) into the computer the screen goes totally black - no words, nothing. Also, when I plug the keyboard into the computer that doesn't work either. I am a novice for sure and have no idea what to do. I don't think I am submitting this question in the right area. Please help me!!! Thanks Debbie
When you say the pc is working fine, it's hard to tell if there is no visual from the monitor. Are you getting the 2 usual spaced beeps when your pc boots up, is your keyboard ps2(normal pin type plug or USB)check you have keyboard and mouse in their correct connectors (mouse-green plug, keyboard-purple plug) I'ts more than likely had a bit of banging about in storage and especially if it's been in a cool area, then placed in your house, there may well be condensation points inside which may take a few days to dry out. Try your monitor in a friends pc to eliminate that first.
