Katstu, Are any fans, hard drive or LEDs coming on at all, even briefly? If nothing try the following: -Check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. -Check the 110/220 voltage slide switch to ensure its on 110 (US). If the power supply has a rocker on/off switch make sure its in the on (1) position. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. -Verify the computer case power switch is working correctly. -Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove and add in cards (except primary video card), remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. If you get this far your processor or motherboard may be defective, it happens on occasion. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

I want to install a PCI-E graphics card. Do I have to uninstall the integrated graphics processor? How?


No. As long as you have a PCI-E slot on your motherboard, you just have to power off your computer, install the card, plug in your monitor ONLY to the new card, and power on. It should boot right up using the new video card. Then just install the drivers that came with the CD (or download new ones).
The only other issue it could be is a BIOS issue. If you have the new card installed but you are still getting video only on the onboard video, try going into the BIOS (it may be called Setup) and looking to see if there is a way to tell the motherboard to look first at the PCI-E slot for video instead of onboard.
If you need more help just let me know.

I have a dell optiplex and the hard drive has been removed how do i get new hard driveto run tried to install windowsxp disk failed on restart would not find hard drive HELP


Did you replace the old hard drive with a new one?
Check the connections on the drive itself. When you plugged the new one in, there should have been two cables you plugged into it. 1 small one that goes to the motherboard (called the SATA cable), and one wider one which comes right out of the power supply. If either of these is not plugged into the hard drive, you would get a message that says "could not find drive".

Check your connections and try again. If they're ok, then write back with as much detail as you can provide.

Good luck!

Installing a new pci-e video


For one, what you can do is put in your old card. Install the NEW drivers for your 9500GT and shutdown. Install new Graphics card. (I would double check for an "ATX" power input on the card.)(, im sure it needs one) and that should hopefully help, Also consult your motherboard booklet and your graphics card booklet to see if the card is compatible. Hope this helps!

Power supply


Not sure what you requesting as information but to install a power supply is easy (make sure it's not plugged in obviously). Take off the case...it's right there. Unscrew from the outside to remove and install new. One word of caution...I am not a big fan of E-Machines "past"....motherboards and power supplies were (are?) major failure items with these machines. If you wish to know what supply to use check what you have and then go to pricewatch.com to find one....note, it need not be the same brand (preferable probably) but it does need to have the same dimensions and wattage. Trust this helps...Tango

Beep: 6 seconds on, 3 seconds off


Pull all the cards out. Put in the CPU and fan, just one memory chip, the video card and the hard drive. Plug in just the power supply and the powerbutton switch to motherboard. Don't connect anything but the monitor, mouse and keyboard. If you still get beeps, try another memory chip (just one). I don't know the beep codes for your motherboard so we have to do this one step at a time.
