  1. i have a emachine desktop about 4 years old with a dell monitor
    it recently got a new motherboard due to the problem that we are still having
    it has a 2.8ghz processor
    80gb hard drive
    and the BIG probelm is that the monitor wont turn on...
    the computer turns on like normal but the monitor stays in stanby..
    the keyboard light wont turn on either...
    \i tried plugging the pc into another monitor but it didnt work...
    any suggestions would be good.
    thanks

    Sounds more like your video card then if you have tried a working monitor with poor results. Replace your current video card with a known working one, and see if it solves your problem.

    No problem...

    If you post your computer's model number and/or system specifications we will be able to help you a little bit better.
