Default No Show on Monitor


I have a emachines T2682. When I turn it on, the fan spins but nothing shows up on the monitor. I have tested the monitor and it is in working condition. The computer however, is not. Any ideas?

interpol....great band if thats what its from. but anyways i wont beat you up to much for having an emachine either.

First is it Onboard video or video card?

Second have you tried an AGP video card or PCi video card in the emachine and see fi the monitor responds to that.

it is most likely a video card problem.

Try clearing your BIOS CMOS by removing the lithium battery on the motherboard for a minute or two, then placing it back.

Also, if you have a graphics card, you could test it in another PC if you have one available.
