Question

eMachine Video card or Monitor?

My son's eMachine, Model EL-1360G, has an issue, either the monitor, which I doubt or the on board video card. When first turning on the computer, monitor worked and then "no signal" and now black and blinking power light on monitor. ALSO, I don't hear any fans working! Power supply or any others,
thanks,
Rich

Have you tried it on another PC?

The no fans is a pretty good clue.

This looks to be 2 or 3 years old but without fans that points to the main box has failed. You may want to try the computer (no monitor required) in another power outlet.

(NT) sounds like PSU failure

eMachine Video card or monitor?

Thanks everyone, yes, I tried it on my desktop and the monitor worked fine, so it's something on the mother board/video card I guess. The video stuff is ALL included in the Motherboard, so it looks like a new motherboard,

Is this an OEM machine?

If so, changing the mobo will result in the "Windows is not genuine" message. Probably cost nearly as much as a new machine.

Edited typo.

Hmm

if you didn't have such a small PSU , I'd say try another GPU
