    Yes it does have on board graphic, but how do you turn the on board graphic off in the BIOS? And how do you access BIOS? Is it the setup when you press the F1 button when you turn on the computer?

  • Thomas F. Schneider May 11, 2010

    Does the computer have on board graphics also? If so have you gone into the BIOS and turned off the "On board" graphics?

Yes, That could be the setup for the BIOS.They all use different keys to enter BIOS /setup. Just look around until you find it, the onboard graphics disconnect.

Why when turn on computer there is a sound signal from computer but the monitor has no picture but monitor is okey.


If the monitor works on a different PC, the problem may be your video graphics card. If it is a builtin graphics card, you can install a graphics card and disable the integrated one if there is an open slot on the motherboard.

I have an Emachines T6532. The screen keeps "glitching" out on me. Any idea what might be causing this, or how to fix it??


http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y47/beetle665/IMG_4829.jpg

DUDE! You can't post pictures like THAT!

Put sum clothes on that girl!






-> OH,....I'M JUST KIDDING! <-



1) Check the monitor cable.

If attached to the monitor, use the monitor, and cable on a WORKING computer. Same thing? Need a different monitor.

Use a KNOWN to be working monitor cable, if detachable; on your computer.

No? Monitor cable is good?
Go on.

2) We are dealing with a graphics problem.
Next in line is the graphics chipset.

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

Clicking on the photo shows a MUCH better view.

You have two white PCI slots at the Bottom, (PCI1 and PCI2), and a white longer PCI Express x16 slot above them.

[The shorter white slot above the long white PCI Express x16 slot, is a PCI Express x1 slot)

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
A term that seldom seems used anymore. Too bad because it explains better.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chipset is part of the motherboard chipset, which is Soldered TO the motherboard.

If the OnBoard Graphics of the motherboard is suspected to be bad, the tech will then use a graphics card; and bypass the Integrated/OnBoard graphics.

You have your choice of using one of the white PCI slots, if available; or the white PCI Express x16 slot.
Posting in case you have a graphics card sitting around.

Anti-Static Procedures are FOLLOWED, with your unplugged from power computer. The graphics card is physically installed.
Monitor attached to graphics card.

When you turn the computer on, the graphics won't be perfect. This is because THE graphics drivers for THAT graphics card; has not been installed yet.

Will sort of look 'Fred Flintstone-sih'
(Color quality will probably be set at 8 bit, instead of 16-bit; and Screen Resolution will be wrong)

That's OK. Right now you are just trying to get graphics.

I'll guide you through installing the drivers.

Emachine ET1850 model when turn on no display picture.


Check ALL monitor cables, reseat connections. Have you done any hardware or software updates? Graphics Updates? Do you get anything at boot? Just no signal? It sound like a hardware issue, Graphics. Support for your machine can be found here: http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?modelId=2064 You could buy a PCI e x16 Graphic Card . Better ,faster Graphics. First, check VGA connections, reseat, check for bent pins. Try another cable and monitor, to verify.

I have an VGA adapter on the cord b/c 15 pin male/9 pin female is almost impossible to find. Anyway when I connect to two monitors to the pc only on monitor comes on the other does nothing. comfirmed both...


http://www.amazon.com/Female-HD15-Male-Adaptor-Molded/dp/B000I97FGA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1352480644&sr=8-2&keywords=9+pin+female+connector

9-pin female to 15-pin male RS232 adapter

This = NO

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009371/1009371rv.shtml

You cannot run dual monitors off of the motherboard.
BIOS will assign only one IRQ.
(Interrupt ReQuest )

That 9-pin connector (C) is a Serial port. This = No

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009371/1009371rvr2.shtml

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_Port

You need a graphics card.

Don't be thinking of one monitor to motherboard, and one monitor to graphics card.
One IRQ, and it's assigned to either the -> motherboard graphics (Integrated), or a -> dedicated graphics card.

Two monitors to graphics card.

I am using a lesser model;
ATI Radeon 9250, and it's a PCI graphics card.
Goes in a white PCI slot.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5247980&CatId=1603

My PCI-Express graphics card gave up the ghost. (8 years old. It's cool)
I replaced it with the Radeon 9250 so could run dual monitors again.
Does fine for on here, Adobe Photoshop 7, YouTube, etc. Not a gamer.
(I have a Powercolor HD5450 PCI-Express graphics card I'm going to use, when I get off my duff, lol! Requires a 400 Watt power supply)

I use an HP 2009m 20-inch widescreen, as my Primary monitor, (Left side of computer desk), and a Philips 26-inch HDTV as my Secondary monitor. (Right side of desk)

Do you have two VGA (CRT) type monitors, or is one a flat LCD screen digital monitor?
Some flat LCD screen monitors have dual hookups.
One for a VGA cable, and one for a DVI cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

If you have two VGA monitors that are the CRT type, (Looks like a small TV), and your graphics card has 1 VGA port, and 1 DVI port, they make a VGA to DVI adapter. Just make sure you get the correct one.

VGA port on graphics card is Female.
DVI cable connector is Male.
This is the usual standard.
This is the type of VGA to DVI adapter that is required,

http://www.directron.com/dviadapter.html

ALWAYS, install the software off of the Installation disk that comes with the graphics card -> FIRST
Install the drivers, and the user control panel.

(Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.
The graphics card is the device, do not know what version of Windows you are using.
User control panel = ATI - Catalyst Control Panel. Nvidia - Nvidia Control Panel )

Do Not worry that you will loose graphics, after installing the graphics card software. Windows will Not use the software until THAT graphics card is installed.

Then after finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen, and turn the computer off.
Unplug from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions, and physically install graphics card.
(Need to know about Anti-Static Precautions please post back in a Comment)

Set your main, or Primary monitor on the left side, Secondary monitor on the right; of your computer desk.
Turn the monitors on. If a CRT type allow them to warm up.

Turn the computer on. Once Windows has loaded your desktop screen will be on the Primary monitor.

1) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen
2) Left-click on Properties
3) Left-click on the Settings tab

The blue No.1 monitor icon is the Primary monitor
The blue No.2 monitor icon is the Secondary monitor.

4) Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon.
5) Left-click in the empty square box to the left of -
Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

6) Left-click on Apply at the bottom right
7) Left-click on OK at the bottom left.

Your desktop screen will now be on both monitors.
(Advisory comes up asking if you wish to keep settings? Yes)

Open your internet browser.
Move your mouse cursor to the Right side of the blue frame/border.
WHEN your mouse cursor turns into a Double-Headed Arrow, hold the Left mouse button down.

It is a little tricky to keep the mouse cursor as a Double-Headed Arrow. Must be that, and then hold the left mouse button down.

Holding the left mouse button down move your mouse to the Right, and drag the blue border of the internet browser to the Right.
Keep dragging until it is all the way to the right side, of the Secondary monitor.

Now you have your internet browser on both monitors.

I run the internet browser on my Secondary monitor, (26-inch HDTV), and use the Primary monitor to look at computer functions, motherboard manuals, etc.
Or I move the internet browser to the Primary monitor, play music videos from YouTube, and use the Secondary monitor for Photoshop.

The world is your oyster.

So there you have it. You need a graphics card, and it has to have dual monitor inputs. (Ports)
Splitter cable thing? I wouldn't bother.

IRQ - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interrupt_Request

Buying a graphics card:
Depends on what you want to do with it for one.
You can see the simple stuff I do, doesn't require much graphics power.
(More than Integrated Graphics, though, and can't use dual monitors on Integrated Graphics)

The next concerns are what type of graphics expansion slot/s do you have, and how much Wattage (Power) the Power Supply has.

You have a 300 Watt power supply, unless it has been replaced,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009371/1009371cl4.shtml

(Scroll down; Power Supplies)

Your motherboard has 2 white PCI slots. If one is available it can be used for a graphics card -> Not recommended

Your motherboard has one Black PCI-Express x16 expansion slot, that is used for a graphics card, also.
It is right above No.1 white PCI slot.
Highly recommended.

(Gently Pull UP on the PCI-Express x16 slot -> Lock
It looks as though you press down on it, when installing, or removing a graphics card )

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/INTEL/4006158R/4006158Rnv.shtml

So when looking for a graphics card, look for PCI-Express graphics card, and system requirements / minimum power requirement; states 300 Watt power supply, or greater.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
I know that is a lot to take in all at once. I can clarify anything you need clarified.

No input signal


Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya!

Since you had it repaired and transported it home this fault may be due to a loose connection. Or like you say it could be a simple task of placing the graphics cable in the correct graphics output port.

Install the monitor graphics cable into a horizontal graphics output port if possible. Doing this would therefore connect to the Graphics card if one is installed.

Plugging the monitor graphics cable into the vertical graphics output port would mean that you are connecting your monitor to your computer's onboard graphics output. Which will not work if there is a graphics card installed, in which case one must use the horizonal port, found on the graphics card.

If you have checked that the monitor cable is correctly plugged in and your problem continues then one checks the following:
NB: Turn off your Computer before doing the following:
Make sure the graphics card is secure in it's slot, push down on it lightly when the PC is off.
Check that the power connector to the graphics card is inserted: if applicable.
Ensure that the power supply connectors going to the mainboard are seated.

Check the Memory modules, one may need to be seated or cleaned. Clean the gold fingered connectors with tissue paper.

You may also find it of benifit to look at on eof my published works, entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Take care!

There is no display in monitor. I replace ram even no display, sometime its gives beep sound.Plz is there any solution of this promblem


when the computer is beeping when started, and you get no picture on the monitor, it is usually because your graphics card has stopped working. you can check and see if the card has become loose, first shut down your computer, unplug it, and please wait about 5 seconds before touching anything inside. your graphics card in the computer is the one that the monitor plugs into. check to make sure it is pushed tightly into the mother board. if the card is pushed all of the way in, and it is still a problem after plugging in your computer, and turning it back on, then the card is probably defective. Some computers have the graphics built into the mother board, and therefore do not have a graphics card, if this is your case, you can purchase a new graphics card and carefully install it into your computer and plug your monitor into it.Now you will not be using the built in graphics any more, and this should solve your problems. when doing any work on your computer, please make sure it has been shut down and unplugged. Most peeple who work on computers will have a spare graphics card kicking around somewhere, ask someone if they have one you could try in your computer, or go online to a local classifieds site and see if anyone will sell you a used one if you do not want to purchase a new one. You should have no problem at all finding a used graphics card/ video card. If problem still ocurs, or if it is easier for you, borrow a monitor from someone and try a different monitor first, this may be the problem, but not very likely.
Hope this helped !

I added a new video card and the monitor wont come on


1) Did you plug the monitor into the graphics card?

(Hey, happens! Sometimes in our zealousness to see what that baby will do, we mess up a little)

2) Did you install the Drivers? First?

These will be on the installation disk that comes with the graphics card.
Recommend installing the software from the disk FIRST, then turn the computer off, unplug from power, install the graphics card.

3) Does the graphics card require additional power?

Some graphics cards will not receive enough power, from the graphics expansion slot they are inserted into.

[Gateway GM5084 uses a PCI Express x16 slot, for best graphics.

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009054/1009054nv.shtml

(Left-click on Specifications]

Some powerful graphics cards require additional power cables from the Power Supply.

Want to improve the graphics card to watch DVD's. no card to remove must be internal will this cause a problem?


1Disable the onboard graphics (assuming that you are running Windows). Turn your computer on and log on using Safe Mode. You can do this by pressing F8 repeatedly during boot up. You should come to a list of options; highlight Safe Mode using the up and down buttons, and press 'Enter' to select.
  • 2Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
  • 3Select the Hardware tab, and click on Device Manager.
  • 4Click on the '+' by the picture of a monitor. It should pull up your graphics device (something like Intel Integrated Graphics).
  • 5Right click on the device for your onboard graphics.Disable it, don't uninstall it; otherwise, this will cause you a world of trouble.
  • 6Log off, and power your computer off.
  • 7Remove the case cover and insert the new card in an empty slot.
  • 8Plug your monitor cable into the new card, and when you log on, it should run on low resolution until the driver is installed. It should find the new hardware, and from here, follow the graphics card installation manual. Sometimes it has programs that install the driver and not the Found New Hardware Wizard.

    Monitors wont work


    It appears that you have a faulty graphics card.
    If the graphics card is integrated with the motherboard then it cannot be repaired. Just purchase a new AGP graphics card, insert it into the AGP slot and connect your monitor to this card.
    You may need to go to the BIOS setup to disable the on-board graphics card.
    If you don't have an integrated graphics card, then buy a replacement graphics card.
    You will need to install the new graphics drivers after installing the graphics card.

    LCD monitor trouble


    Hi

    It could be an issue with the monitor or the software or the drivers for the graphics card.

    Pls uninstall the display drivers, restart the drivers and reinstall the display drivers and then restart the computer once again and check the display.

    Also pls install the monitor software that came with the monitor.

    Also you may try downloading the original display drivers and any driver updates from the graphics card manufacturer website and check the display.

    If the above steps doesnt work, then the monitor has to be serviced or replaced.
