Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have an old Emachine T6520 Media Center that I am trying to get up and running again. I am not a hardware expert, but I was told my motherboard was bad so I bought a new one & replace it. I hooked everything up (I took a photo of my old set up so I could put it all back in the right spots) but now no signal to my monitor, and I can't power down unless I unplug it. What wires do I have crossed?
This new Motherboad has an On board video card that is likely set to be the default one to use. Try switching your monitor cable to the onboard SVGA plug. then boot up your PC.
If you now have a signal, this was likely your cause. Next determine which is the better GPU. If the On board ATI is better than your existing card (Not likely) then your in good shape. If not the Manual that came with your MSI board should tell you how to enter the BIOS. There you can change the onboard video to disabled and save your changes and exit then move your Monitor cable back to your PCIE card and finish setting up your system.
Hope this helps

Check the jumpers on the back of the hard drive and the cd/dvdrom. If the cd/dvd rom is set to slave and the hard drive is set to master then change the cd/rom to master and the harddrive to slave or vice versa.
I had a similar problem and this fixed it.
If this does not work then change them back and post again for additional support.
