Installing graphics card

I have an Emachine W3502. I am looking to install a Nvidia 8600GT. I found out that will need a psu bigger then the 300W stock in the tower. I ordered a 480W psu. Problem I am having is that I can not find any information on how to install the Nvidia graphics card. What information I can find is very general and stats to refer back to the manual for the motherboard. I did not get any manual for anything on the computer. Pretty much just want to know how to go about install the new graphics card.

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.

8800gt black screen


Hi Juan016, you have done everything right. I'd say the 8800GT is bad & return it for a refund. Run the 8600GT & the NVIDIA 6100 at the same time. If you check the middle of page 9 in your manual. NOTE: It states; if a PCI-E is inserted the bios will automatically run the PCI-E card. (No need to make a bios setting change).
It also says if you change the setting in the bios to, OnChip and PCIe VGA, the motherboard should run both. Depending what amount of memory you set the NVIDIA to run with. Once in windows check the amount of total memory the NVIDIA or 8600GT reports.
Example: You set the NVIDIA to use 64MB & the 8600GT has 512MB than the NVIDIA or the 8600GT should show 576MB. Its not that uncommon one buys a bad video card.
Reading the manual & windows not seeing the 8800GT tells me the bios did not see the 8800GT card. The card is bad. You’re doing just fine.

Leadtek GeForce 8600 GT Extreme Video Card - 256MB GDDR3, PCI Express, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, Video Card


Usually the power quoted is for the entire system, not for the graphic card. The 8600GT systems (even yours with the overclocked GPU) would run fine with any PSU which comes true 300W (Single Rail PSU).

A key thing it seems in the amperage of your 12V, if its less than 18 or 20 (some say it should be even higher), it might not be enough for your graphic card as it does not come with an extra power socket (only the 8600GTS and above have this).
