Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have friends MSI MS-5169 v4 motherboard with ATi AGP video card (PN 109-49800-10). After attempting to access both sides of drive cage by loosening the clamp screws and easing out side panel (power off, although found ultimately wasn't necessary to do it this way) when put back together there is no output to monitor. Replaced AGP with another identical, and ran with different monitor, still the same.

    Thanks for trying. Resitting RAM did not have any effect. As I have no output to the monitor, I can not view the Bios settings. However, have lent my friend an old PC with his hard drive as a back-up disk, so ball is now back in his court as it were. Thanks again.

Gateway computer is stuck in power saving mode.


The Gateway 818GM is a few years old but if - hopefully - the motherboard auto-detects a video card, try removing the MSI MS-8936 video card & swapping over the monitor lead to the other VGA connector fed from the motherboard.

Failing that, if you think it's a faulty video card, they're cheaply available on eBay eg for US$6.70 here:
MSI NVIDIA GeForce MX 4000 MS 8936 64 MB DDR SDRAM AGP 4x 8x Graphics

Trouble with install second video card HD 5450 to emachines t6532


Unclear of your statement. (More like run-on sentence)

Problem heading statement reads,
"trouble with install second video card HD5450 TO eMachines T6532"

Need clarification

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

(Click on photo for a better image)


Has one long white PCI Express x16 slot. (Expansion Slot)
Only uses one graphics card at a time, will Not use two.

[Graphics card / Video card. Same/same]

Therefore I surmise you are not referring to adding a Second graphics card, but are referring to;

A) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.

Or,

B) This is the second ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.
Had one before. Removed it, and are using a new one.

Or,

C) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.
It is not an ATI Radeon HD5450 like the old one is.

Know this;
1) You can ONLY use the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics,
OR the graphics card.
You CANNOT use both.

When using a graphics card the monitor is plugged into it.
You cannot plug into the onboard graphics of the motherboard, with it installed in the computer.

Said differently;
With the graphics card physically installed in the computer, you cannot just unplug the monitor from the graphics card; and plug it into the OnBoard graphics of the motherboard.

[Also; Computer on, you CANNOT unplug a monitor, and plug it back in.
This = NO ]


2) Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device is the graphics card.
The version of Windows operating system was not stated.

Did you install the software from the Installation Disk? (CD/DVD)
Has the drivers on it, and the user interface software.
User interface software for an ATI graphics card, is Catalyst Control Center.

(Just to note; I'm using a Powercolor Radeon HD5450 graphics card, right now.
I'm using dual monitors.

HP 2009M - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an RCA L26HD31 HDTV as the main monitor. (26 inch HDTV)
They work GREAT! ]

(It is an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card just like yours, IF yours has 1GB of graphics memory.

Doesn't matter what graphics card manufacturer, makes that HD5450, it is still an ATI (AMD) design.

Powercolor, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond Multimedia, Mickey Mouse, or Goofy. It is still an ATI graphics card )

The ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, has to have a MINIMUM power requirement of 350 Watts.
Does your power supply have 350 Watts or more?

If it is the original power supply, the answer is NO.

Back then power supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the true maximum rated wattage.
Why?

Sold more power supplies.

Power supply rated at 250 Watts?
Nope.
More like 60 to 70 percent of that.

Divide 250 by 10.
= 25.
Take that times 6. = 150 Watts (60 percent)
Times 7 = 175 Watts (70 percent)

Would like your opening statements clarified.
Post back in a Comment.

What ati and nvidia video cards are compatible with presario s6300nx


The motherboard used has an AGP 8X/4X expansion slot for a video card. Any card for this type of slot will work, and your choice will probably be based on what applications you want to run, and how much you want to spend. Since this computer is an AMD Athlon system, some people believe you should use an ATI card. AMD owns ATI, and there is a belief that an ATI card will perform better. I've tried both (my current video card is an nVidia model, in an Athlon dual-core board), and at least for me it makes no difference.

We have an emachine w3400 and need and new video card but don't know if it is PCI standard or PCI express how do i find out?


The eMachines W3400 desktop computer has an MSI MS-7145 motherboard.
(MSI = Micro Star International, Inc)

This is the MSI MS-7145 motherboard,

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket754/msi7145.shtml

The MSI MS-7145 motherboard, has one PCI Express x16 expansion slot, which is used for a graphics card.

Viewing the bottom left of the photo, you will see three white PCI slots.

Right above them is a longer white slot.
This is a PCI Express x16, expansion slot.

Scrolling down to the subheading - Expansion Slots,
You will see - One PCI Express 16x slot, listed.

Should you require information in installing a PCI Express graphics card, or information on which PCI Express graphics card may fit your needs, state so in a Comment.

The two cards that were tested on this from Dell are

The maximum card you can connect to the system any PCI video card not more than 128 MB. As the motherboard and the power supply would not support it

ATI AGP card and Compaq Presario S3100NX with open AGP Slot


Hi,
This particular model of the system is basic home use system not built for games.
You can put in either a PCI graphics card or an AGP 4x graphics card that should not take more than 1.5v of power.
The max you can put is 128 MB , you can try the 256 MB, but i would suggest against it .

Thanks for using fIxya
