    Suddenly, no display with monitor on; no No Input Signal message with it disconnected or computer turned off. But sometimes it works!
    I have connected the eMachines monitor to another computer, and it works every time. I have connected another monitor to eMachines computer, and it works every time!
    An eMachines tech suggested I reseat the memory cards, so I did, but it didn't help. Another suggested a complete system restore is the only remaining option.

    Thank you for your quick response! Having read it, I have jusst reconnected the eMachines monitor to another computer, and for the first time there is no display! I have also connected another monitor to the eMachines computer, and it is working perfectly! I had also (while awaiting responses to my post) tried for the first time connecting the eMachines monitor to my notebook, but it didn't work that way either. It is now looking more clearly like the monitor is at fault.

    Sorry... I deleted my reply, so now you sound like you're insane ;)

    I missed that you said you had already tried another monitor and it worked fine.

    try resetting you display settings to default, then take it from there.

    your conclusion is correct insane or not (and I thought it was me), it is the monitor and repairing a monitor is too costly I'm afraid.

    Guess what, guys--this afternoon I plugged the monitor in again and it works! I am using it even now! All it did was disconnect the other monitor and reconnect the eMachines monitor to the eMachines computer.
    I appreciate the suggestions (and the fun), but (seriously) what am I to make of this now?

    my guess would be to enjoy it whie it lasts.

    suspect the problem will reoccur but who knows.

    Yeah if nothing else, something somewhere is at least loose enough to have caused this.
