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

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!

I have an Emachine with Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6100 (graphics up to 128 MB of shared video memory)Video card, was wondering what video card should i get to upgrade for either a s-video out or HDMI to...


Hi,

You can purchase a new graphics card and install no problem. Dont use S-Video tho, as the quality is not good. HDMI graphics cards are much cheaper these days.

Stay with Nvidia, as the onboard chip for your PC would support this better.

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.

Check the connections and the cabling if it is secure. To ensure that the card is not the problem, you may want to try on a different monitor and different cable.
