Question about E-Machines T2200 PC Desktop

3 Answers

LOST POWER ON MY COMPUTER.

TURNED THE MACHINE OFF ONE NITE. TURNED IT BACK ON NEXT DAY AND THE MONITOR SAID IT WASN'T RECEIVING A SIGNAL. I THOUGHT THE MONITOR WAS BAD, SO REPLACED IT. TURNED THE COMPUTER ON AGAIN AFTER HOOKING UP NEW MONITOR AND ONLY THE FAN CAME ON. I WIGGLED THE POWER CORD TO SEE IF IT WAS LOOSE AND THE FAN WENT OFF AND THE POWER BUTTON WOULDN'T WORK ANYMORE OR THE LITTLE LIGHT AROUND IT. TOOK THE TOWER TO A REPAIR PLACE AND THEY SAID THEY THOUGHT IT WAS THE MOTHERBOARD. ALSO, FOR A COUPLE DAYS BEFORE THIS HAPPENED, THE MOUSE WOULD FREEZE UP OCCASIONALLY. THEY TOLD ME I NEED TO GET HE EXACT MOTHERBOARD TO FIX THIS AND IT'S AN E-MACHINE T2200 ABOUT 4-5 YEARS OLD. I DON'T WANT TO LOSE ALL THE STUFF ON MY HARD DRIVE. WHAT CAN I DO?

Here is a link to a motherboard that is on sale at Ebay:

You can replace the motherboard only if you dont want back up your computer and purchase a new one.

First thing to check if the computer will not power on is the power supply, but I'm betting they already checked that.

In order to keep the hard drive exactly the way it was you do need the exact same motherboard. If you put a different board in it's place Windows will have to be re-installed.

I recommend most people with machines several years old and have bad motherboard to replace the computer instead of fixing the old one. You could pay several hundred dollars getting that one fix or put that money towards a new computer which will generally be way better than what you had.

As far as your data it is fairly easy to remove the hard drive from your emachine and put it into a USB Hard drive enclosure . From there you can manually copy all your important info (photos, emails, documents) to the new computer.

One thing to beware - most new computers come with Windows Vista preinstalled on them. If this is the case some of your software may not work on it and you may also have to purchase an updated version of the software to get access to your files.

You can place your hard drive into an External Hard Drive Case and transfer your files on another system (this would be cheaper than having a repair shop do a ‘data-transfer’).

I have a dell studio 540 desktop, I need to restore to factory settings but my monitor will not stay open. It opens for a few seconds then immediately goes into power saver mode and turns off, how can


I see two things here, but need clarification;

1) Monitor goes to Power Saver Mode, then turns -> OFF?

Sure that monitor didn't go into Standby Mode?

2) Why are you performing a restore back to factory settings?
Pick up a virus?

Primer;
The monitor receives a signal. A video signal. The video signal comes from the computer.

If the monitor is NOT receiving a video signal, then the monitor will state No Signal.
This is for older monitors.

New monitors do not state No Signal anymore.
It's Power Saver Mode, or Sleep Mode.

If the monitor is truly OFF, the Power On button will Not be lit up.
Or the Power On LED light on the monitor.

Monitor power on LED is lit, or Power On button is lit?

Monitor is not receiving a video signal;

Use a monitor cable from a KNOWN to be working monitor, for a temporary test.
OR,
Use a Known to be working monitor, and it's monitor cable.

Need to find out if monitor cable is good.

Monitor cable checks out good?

Then problem is computer.

The two leading issues with desktop computer failure, is;

1) Computer is dirty inside
2) Power Supply inside computer is bad.

Please post back in a Comment.

Says no signal on monitor.


The monitor is telling you that it is functioning properly (it works). It is also saying that it isn't receiving and signal from a computer. This can happen when-
** computer is turned off but monitor is on (this can occur, for example, when the computer's power supply dies while turned on). That happened to me just a couple of days ago.)

** monitor cable to computer has come loose or totally disconnected

Screen shows message "no input signal" and monitor goes to sleep.


monitor show "no input singnal" error masage when not gating any type of video singnal ,
so if u realy check your monitor wires for correctty plugged in .
then:-

Two possibilities:

either the video/mainboard of the monitor is defective; or
the video card/ CPU is the faulty.

A way to verify is to try the PC with another monitor or to try the monitor in another PC.

thanks

Problem
1. turn on computer
2. monitor receives signal, it looks like its working
3. it goes through some steps and then the monitor says "no signal" and kind of stays in limbo with fans running, etc.

Solution
One possibility is that computer is looking for drivers for you video card. It could be hung up looking in the wrong places. Remove all peripheral hard drives and memory sticks. Try again.

Kds model 780 monitor no signal, power button does not work


My monitor does the same thing at times and sometimes shows "No Signal" and at other times the screen will maintain the images but the backgound color switches to mustard yellow. In each of these cases I have been able to solve the problem by unplugging the power cord from the electical outlet for about three seconds and plugging it back in. I have a KDS model 780 LCD.
GOOD LUCK

Signal lost usually means the cable is lose that connects the monitor to the back of your computer.
with the computer off and unplugged , disconnect the monitor cable from the video port on the back of the computer and physically inspect the pins to make sure they are not bent on the monitor end.
some monitors have the same plug on both ends , so it doesn't hurt to check the monitor side of the cable.
Once the cable has been checked, if the cover is off the computer, i would check all cables and add-in card to make sure they are fully in thier slots and ports.
check memory for the same issues.
If your monitor is a multi-function device , make sure you didnt forget to hit the source button on it , could be on the wrong input.

Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.


Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

* Off entirely.
* Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
* Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
* On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

Hope this helps.

Computer or Monitor problem?


Seems like you have a bad motherboard. Try a different keyboard, mouse, and VGA cable, and see if it works. I fnot then you deffinitely need a new motherboard.
