Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

My monitor goes to sleep mode at startup & can't access safe mode

\015 My old emachines T2542 has been acting up on me. When I turn the computer on the monitor (HP Pavilion f1903) says the monitor will go to sleep mode and the blue led turns amber and it is in the sleep mode. I hit F8 twice every 2 seconds but cannot access the boot menu. I tried booting it with the original restore cd's and an original XP OS CD and nothing happened. All the connections seems fine, nothing loose. I unpowered it still no luck. The monitor works with other computers just fine. I did not installed a new mobo or video card. \015\012Is it a bad sector? a bad v-drive? what could it be?? I cannot access to anything. I've been thinking to grab the slave hd (where my docs are) and connect to another pc to transfer the files and rebuild it. However don't know how I am going to re-install the drives and OS XP home SVP 3. I have only xp svp 1 and cannot even access the screens to format the hd. Could someone please explain step by step what to do? \015\012If needed I can provide more information as well.\015\012\015\012Thank you very much in advance. Your time is appreciated!\015\012Kerem\015

Answers :

Turn the computer off, open the case and remove the RAM. Does the computer beep when you turn it on with no RAM? If not, your motherboard is dead.

If your computer beeps, turn it off again and try putting one stick of RAM in. If the computer doesn't turn on normally, try the other stick of RAM.

Also, try taking out the video card and putting it back in.

Good luck,
Jason
