    My power supply is 300 watt max, i'm just wanting a graphics card that will support 2 Samsung 2233BW , i'll need 2 VGA or 2 DVI on it.

  • wdodster Dec 27, 2008

    Thanks for your recomendation but i'm using xp

  • wdodster Dec 28, 2008

    Well, i'm still in need of options for a graphics card that will be compatible with this Emachine T5022. Geek Squad had me buy a

    BFG-NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR2 PCI Graphics Card-BFGR84512GSP

    and wasn't compatible, slid right in PCI slot and specs from card said that 300 watt power supply would work? Any suggestions?

  • wdodster Dec 28, 2008

    maybe this will help / specs on motherboard



    The T5022 mother board has 3 expansion slots that is one PCI express and two PCI

    Details:-
    PCI Express

    The motherboard provides one PCI Express ×1 connector supporting simultaneous transfer speeds up to 8 GBytes/sec. The PCI Express interface supports the PCI Conventional bus configuration mechanism so that the underlying PCI Express architecture is compatible with PCI Conventional compliant operating systems. Additional features of the PCI Express interface include:

    Support for the PCI Express enhanced configuration mechanism
    Automatic discovery, link training, and initialization
    Support for Active State Power Management (ASPM)
    SMBus 2.0 support
    Wake# signal supporting wake events from ACPI S1, S3, S4, or S5
    Software compatible with the PCI Power Management Event (PME) mechanism defined in the PCI Power Management Specification Rev. 1.1

    PCI:-

    This motherboard has two PCI Conventional (rev 2.2 compliant) bus add-in card connectors. The SMBus is routed to PCI Conventional bus connector 2 only (ATX expansion slot 6). PCI Conventional bus add-in cards with SMBus support can access sensor data and other information residing on the motherboard. Both of the PCI Conventional bus connectors are bus master capable.
    SMBus signals are routed to PCI Conventional bus connector 2. This enables PCI Conventional bus add-in boards with SMBus support to access sensor data on the boards. The specific SMBus signals are as follows:


    The SMBus clock line is connected to pin A40.
    The SMBus data line is connected to pin A41.

    Could you please tell me what
    graphics card you are getting and also, could you find out the model number of
    the PSU (power supply unit) you are using? (The psu is usually a big square box
    inside the computer normaly located at the top-back end of the computer with loads of wires coming out of it)



    Different graphics cards demand different amount of power and also they need
    different connections as well sometimes

You should be fine with the PSU that you have currently got but i would recommend upgrading it to something above 400W.

there is a graphics card i would recommend which is a Sapphire ATi Radeon HD 2600 PRO. you can look it up here.

it will support dual monitor at 1080p which uses two DVI.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop. It needs a monitor. I tried new ones from Best Buy and Office Max but they say no signal when I hook them up..I tried this computer with monitor in the following


Thank you for replying,
As per the diagnostic LED's, it is an issue with Video initialization failure. Your computer has onboard Graphics which is built into the Motherboard.
Video Initialization failure could happen if there is :
Unseated AGP card
Bad AGP card
Bad motherboard

As per your Svc Tag your system doesn't have AGP Graphics Card, Probable issue with MOBO.
This computer doesn't have a AGP Slot (Graphics Card Slot) to try connecting Graphics Card.
Need to repair/replace MOBO.

Thanks.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 that I am running dual monitors on. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 professional from Windows XP and now I can't get both monitors to run at the same time. I have a Nvdia...


You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:
http://www.microsoft.com/athome/organization/twomonitors.aspx
The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

What video card are compatable with SR1620NX ? The graphics card is not working right anymore and I need a compatable video card.


A PCI Express graphics card.

Doesn't matter if the PCI Express graphics card uses the PCI Express 2.0 technology, or the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

The PCI Express graphics card, will insert into the PCI Express x16 expansion slot on the motherboard.


Supporting data;

1) View of the motherboard in an illustration,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00378480&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1127351

Scroll down the page to view the motherboard illustration.

A) Looking at the illustration, view the BATT. (CMOS Battery)

To the left of the CMOS Battery (BATT) are three white PCI slots.
Above them is a longer expansion slot. This is the PCI Express x16 slot.

Above it is marked > PCIX16X1 (PCI x16 times 1 slot)


NOTE* When installing the PCI Express graphics card, lift up gently on the Lock 'handle'.
It looks as though you should push down on it, but you need to lift up on it instead.


Also go above the motherboard illustration, and read to the right of the heading > Internal Connectors

In the list you will see > One PCI Express x16 graphics slot.


WHEN installing a graphics card, ALWAYS install the software from the CD disk provided, First!

Computer on, and Windows running, insert the graphics card's Installation disk, (CD) into the optical drive tray.
Install the software by following the directions.

THEN shut the computer down normally, and unplug the computer from power.
OBSERVE Anti-Static Precautions.
Install the graphics card.
Close the computer case, and plug the monitor into the graphics card.

Turn the computer on.

When you install a device (Such as a graphics card for example), Windows will try to find compatible drivers.
IF, THE driver is not installed First, Windows will match up one of it's thousands of generic drivers.

This = No.

You want THE driver installed first, so that Windows will find it, and Not try to match on of it's generic drivers.

NOTE 2*
It DOESN'T MATTER what graphics ram memory the graphics card has.
The graphics card's Processor and Ram Memory operates independent of the system resources.

Example:
The computer uses DDR Sdram ram memory.
The graphics card uses GDDR5 graphics ram memory.

It will work just fine.

NOTE 3*
It does NOT matter if your computer uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology, and the graphics card uses the PCI Express 2.0, or 2.1 technology.

PCI Express 2.0, and 2.1 technology is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Will you get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0, or 2.1 graphics card?
NO

Will you notice?
NO


What you need to look at it, is how much power will the graphics card use. Look at the system requirements for the graphics card, and be sure your Power Supply has enough power for that graphics card.

Also, IF, the graphics card requires additional power cables from the Power Supply, make sure your Power Supply has the required power cable, or power cables.
IF the Power Supply does not, use a power adapter cable.


NOTE 4*
Graphics card manufacturer's base the power needed for the graphics card, Not just on the graphics card itself, but on an entire computer system, AND the graphics card.

The graphics card manufacturers use a test computer system, that is a powerful computer system.
Gamer motherboard, Dual Core, or Quad Core processor, 4GB of ram memory, and at least two harddrives, and two optical drives, PLUS the graphics card in question.

This complete computer system uses a LOT more power than just the graphics card by itself.

There isn't a single graphics card out there, that uses more than 150 Watts by itself.

Recommendations for a graphics card that is compatible, with a Compaq Presario SR1620nx desktop computer?

Budget to medium:
Good enough to watch videos, older games, and some newer games.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4675217&CatId=3670

Medium:
Higher level games, and large screen monitors,

Need to connect 3 monitors. Want to use either a Nvidia 290 or ATI Radeon 9250 plus the VGA port. Installing the dual-video card disables the VGA port, cannot get it back. Help!!!


Use your AGP dual-video card for two and using a PCI VGA card for the third. It is best if the same manufacturer video driver is used for both cards, as two different ones could be problematic.

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.

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.

Installing radeon s9259 graphics card on a emachine t5010


Did you try to after you install the card to go into the control panel and install new hardware in the add new hardware. If I understand you, when you plug the monitor into the new video card it does not turn the monitor on, Even after you install the card and reboot your pc with the monitor plugged into the new device it don't come on, Make sure the old one is disabed in the device manager and it should work, If Not I need somemore information, You should not have to have changed it in the bios, you may want to change that back to the way it was, the radeon is compatible with the emachine and should work just by installing and plugging into it,Try that see what happens.Hope it helps Happy Holidays Just write back here if that don't work and I 'll figure it out for you,
