Video Card Upgrade Problems

I have a Emachine T6534 and a BFG 550w power supplyand an integraded GeForce 6100. When i try and install the video card it says that the drivers are not compatable with my current hardware and as well when i try and plug my monitor to my new card it shows nothing but when I put it back into the regular plug the monitor will turn on. This is my third new video card that I have tried and I am at my wits end about how or when I'm ever going to have a working new video card. If you could help that would help me out so much. Thanks.

Does this computer have an onboard video card?

If so you will need to disable this feature in the system BIOS.
It should be under onboard devices.
You will need to use the onboard card to enter the system bios and then turn off the onboard card. install the new card and then connect the monitor to it then power on the machine

    What video card are you installing and what is the power requirements for that card?

    Additionally what bus type is it?

    Nvidia cards usually want a higher power supply rating then 550w it may not be getting enough power

Hi! I have a Acer E946GZ Board and I'm wondering if I can put a newer graphic card in my computer or if I will need a new board. I also need a stronger PowerSupply for the newer graphic card I think (450W)


You can put any PCI-e Video card in there as long as you look at the power it needs AND SUPPLY IT, make sure it fits!!! I have a BFG GS-550w and a 8800GTX 1gb in mine and the very end is touching my Hard Drive!!! I have the Core2Duo E4700, which is the quickest CPU u can have, i tried a E5200 and it failed POST!!!!

I don't so much have a problem. It's more of a question. I need to know what graphics cards are compatible with an emachine w3107, or atleast what makes one compatible so i know what to look for.


You currently have a NVIDIA GeForce 6100, if you have not upgraded already. You will need to be looking for any NVIDIA video card, and you can follow this link to see what you can get:
http://www.nvidia.com/content/HelpMeChoose/fx2/HelpMeChoose.asp?lang=en-us

unfortunately it does not say how many WATTS your power supply is on the emachine website so please make sure you see the requirements for the video card and see how many WATTS are require. You may need to upgrade your power supply.

Hope this helps, and I hope you find what you need and enjoy it! Please don't forget to rate, Thanks!

Computer wont turn on with video card


Hi, the problem may lie in the temperatures of the card and power supply. If the system exceeds a certain temperature the system will shut down, this is easily achievable if you are over clocking your cards or CPU. You might find that installing extra cooling power with for example, a water cooled unit, fixes the problem but it is an expensive way of finding out there may be another underlying problem. Just a thought, maybe you could get one, try it, if that doesn't solve the problem, send it back? Hope this helps in some way, happy gaming ;)

I would like to upgrade my emachines t6528 pc with geforce 6100 chipset, to someting like NVIDIA GeForce series 7800, 7900, 7950 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800 or better Can it be done? If so, is it just...


First you need to make sure that motherboard has a PCI-Express slot

If it has that then you will be able to upgrade to any card you want willing your power supply has enough wattage to fuel the card

Most higher end video cards need 450W power supply's to operate without problems

If you meet both of those requirements then your good to go :)

EMachine Video Card upgrade


Ok so are you getting video from the card? Look in system information and see what graphics hardware the computers says is installed. Are you replacing a video card or did you add a card to the system? If you are adding a card make sure that you change the settings in the BIOS to boot first on AGP/PCI-E express slot. Make sure that fast write settings and bus speed settings are compatible with your card. For example if you purchased a 8X AGP card and your computer only does 4X the card may not work. Double check that you are trying to install the correct drivers for your card and operating system.

Want to upgrade the video card in computer


Yes you can upgrade the video card on your computer. The ones that the computer comes with are built in. There should be enough of a variety of Plug and Play video cards available that will work. You did not say what kind of computer you have but when you go to buy the video card you want to install be sure that the person selling it to you guarantees that it will work for your system. Circuit City, Best Buy and other computer software and hardware companies will do at least that so you do not get stuck with something that is not compatible. The installation disc that comes with the card should be straight forward enough and you should not have to answer too many prompts in the pop up window wizard. It should tell you in the end how much video memory you have total after installation and also on power up during the diagnostics and in the setup of the cmos bios. You should not run into any problems. Look for a reputable dealer and good luck.

Pb not seeing my new video card


The 9600 video card, I am fairly sure, has a connection on the card itself for power. Have you maybe fogotten to connect the power supply to the video card? If not , try reseating the video card.  A third possibality.. Some MB, if they have on board video, require you to turn off the "on board video" in order for it to use (see) the New PCI video card. Hope this helps.

What the best 250watt video card for my acer m1640?


Dirtdog,

I'm sorry to tell you, but if you want a high end Videocard in your system, you will likely need to replace your power supply.

Any person who knows much about computer Modding/Gaming will tell you if you want a PC with a modern Videocard, you will need at least a 400W Power Supply Unit,

I like you bought an ACER desktop that had onboard video in my case it was Geforce 6100. Then I bought a BFG 9600GT. Only to find my PC freezing on boot up.

The problem went away son as I upgraded to a 465W PSU. But now my System is running awesome graphics and gets a 4.8 out of 5 on Vistas 3D card performance.

Hope this helps you
Dave

Disable the existing video card in device manager and try again. The onboard video will always try to take first spot, so disable it ...your video will still work until you can install the new video card :)

Hope this helps :)
