SOURCE: GT4023E No video signal to monitor.

A different video card could very well solve this problem. Find a spare card or borrow a friends and see if that fixes the problem. Also, it couldn't hurt to clear the CMOS settings, normally there is a jumper in the computer that allows you to do this. If you are unable to find the jumper, remove the CMOS battery from the computer and unplug the computer.

SOURCE: Video Card question...

It can support the card although the bus speed of the board could limit video thru-put. Another issue to consider is the wattage of the power supply which is at the low end of what is required. I would recommend a 400W minimum.

SOURCE: mercury n1996.......AGP slot or PCI????

n1996 is NOT the model number. ALL MSI boards are labeled n1996 - it's their C-Tick number. You need to find the actual model number which should be listed on a sticker near the main CPU socket. Search for that on msi's website.
Let me know what the model # is..

If I could be of further assistance, let me know.
If this solves your issue, please be kind to rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Does GA-G41M-ES2L Motherboard support asus gtx 650 graphic crad?


http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3500#ov

Specification:
Motherboard chipset;
Intel G41 Northbridge; Intel ICH7 Southbridge,
(The Intel ICH7 is also Intel part number 82801GB)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

G41, scroll down towards the bottom of the chart.
(Past P45)
Introduced in the last quarter of 2009

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_2.0

The PCI Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007

Means your PCI-Express x16 slot is based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121725

The Asus GTX650 graphics card, (No matter which version), is based on the PCI Express 3.0 technology

PCI Express 3.0 technology is Backward Compatible, with PCI Express 2.0 technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#PCI_Express_3.0

"PCI Express 3.0 Base specification revision 3.0 was made available in November 2010, after multiple delays. In August 2007, PCI-SIG announced that PCI Express 3.0 would carry a bit rate of
8 GigaTransfers per Second, (8GT/s), and that it would be backward compatible with existing PCIe implementations."

PCIe =PCI Express

So yes it will work, AND will work at FULL capacity.
Also your motherboard chipset (Northbridge), will support Intel processors that utilize an LGA 775 processor socket, AND up to an Intel Core2 Quad CPU. (Processor)

DOES TAKE SOME POWER, though!
You need a Power Supply that will not only deliver the necessary Wattage, for the computer system; but also need Up To an additional 150 Watts JUST for the graphics card itself.

Know what happens when you try to under power, a powerful graphics card?

Things BURN,
Or
The computer doesn't work

A) The contact pins in the PCI-Express x16 slot, will burn
B) The gold plated contact pins on the bottom, of the graphics card will burn

C) The graphics card requires more power, than the PCI-Express x16 slot can deliver.
A PCI-Express x16 slot can only deliver Up To 75 Watts.

A 6-pin PCI Express power cable is required.
This power cable can deliver Up To 75 Watts.

If there isn't enough power the contact pins, in the 6-pin PCI Express power cable will burn.
So will the contact pins for the power cable, on the graphics card.

The motherboard by itself requires 120 to 150 Watts.
Depending on Processor, Up To 130 Watts.
For each stick of Ram Memory add 25 Watts
25 to 30 for each Optical Drive. (CD/DVD drive)
2 to 3 Watts for each fan; to include the Processor fan, and computer case fans.

Now add 150 Watts for the graphics card.........

Where do you plug in the adaptor on the e machine for wifi


Depends on what kind of Wireless Adapter you are using

There's the Wireless Adapter Card

Comes in three styles of connection,

1) PCI Wireless Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4389486&CatId=2701

2) And PCI-Express x1 Wireless Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1068811&CatId=2688

PCI-Express x4 style may be out there too.
(I've never bothered to look. I use the USB style)


A Wireless Adapter Card based on the PCI technology, goes in a PCI slot. Generally White in color, but NOT always,

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

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

A Wireless Adapter Card based on the PCI Express technology, is used in a PCI-Express x1 slot,

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

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCIExpress.jpg

Top example is a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Moving down, next is a PCI-E x16 slot
Next, PCI-E x1 slot
Next is a PCI-E x16 slot,
and the last one at the bottom is a PCI slot.

Notice they are all Yellow.
Color of connector does NOT matter.

What the expansion slot is, does........

Also there is a USB Wireless Adapter,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3970955&CatId=2704

This type of Wireless Adapter, plugs into any available USB port on the computer.

Front or back of an eMachines desktop computer, in any available USB port.

Any available open USB port, on an eMachines laptop.

(Or any computer manufacturer)

What is the model number of the eMachines Desktop PC?
Examples, T1090, T2460, W4685, D2246, etc.

I should be able to tell you what motherboard is used inside, and may have access to a link, to the Motherboard Manual.

Post back in a Comment.

Which gpu's are compatible with this motherboard


Nvidia and AMD (formally ATI) are chip makers for video cards. Your slot is PCI-e x16, which is good because it may allow physically smaller cards to be inserted. Don't think about the size since your's is x16, but rather the version of PCI-e.

So, if your slot is PCI-e x16 version 1. Don't purchase a version 2 card. It is not compatible. On the other, hand if you have a PCI-e x16 version 2 you can add ver 1 or ver 2 card. The slot is backward compatible.

Hope this make sense and is not too confusing.

Use of PCI-e x16 slot for non-video card


...........................................!O_O!...........................................................

WHY would you want to do that?

There is a PCI-Express x1 slot on the motherboard.
Black in color, and in-between the black PCI-Express x16 slot, and a white PCI slot.

Use the PCI-E x1 RAID adapter card in the PCI-E x1 slot, and a PCI-Express graphics card in the PCI-E x16 slot. Sheesh!

A PCI-Express slot is not an evolved PCI slot.
Completely different technologies.

PCI uses a shared Parallel bus architecture, while PCI-Express is based on Serial point-to-point.

So your idea of how to 'fix' your problem, is to use a PCI-E x1 card in a PCI-Express x16 slot, and a PCI graphics card in a PCI slot?

Completely backwards.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

PCI-Express x16 slot uses the same lanes from the Northbridge, as the OnBoard video?

UTTER NONSENSE!

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-SPEED Graphics.

HIGH-SPEED graphics is the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) technology, and the PCI-Express technology.

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

The PCI bus is one of those slower capabilities handled by the Southbridge chip.

The PCI bus is also a shared bus. This slows data down.
The AGP bus, and PCI-Express bus are Not shared. They also have a direct link to the Northbridge chip.

The PCI Bus has to go through the Southbridge chip, which has to go through the Internal Bus, THEN to the Northbridge chip.

OnBoard video, or Integrated Graphics, uses the PCI bus.
When you inserted the PCI-E x1 RAID card in the PCI-Express x16 slot, and a PCI graphics card in the PCI slot, BIOS just assigned another IRQ for the PCI-Express x16 slot.
(Interrupt Request)

No fancy technology going on there.

Backwards technology going on with a PCI-Express x1 card in a PCI-Express x16 slot, though.

I do not concur, and do not think that is a good solution, Kevin.

I have the Board ASUS P5VDC-MX. And I wonder that there is no pci-e slot, but in the information there is written:"this board is pci-e (16x) ready".... is it right ? Can i use a pci-e (16x) video...


No, you can't use a PCIe x16 card in any of the slots on the P5VDC-MX board. A PCIe x16 card can't fit into the PCIe x1 slot. Attempting to force a PCIe x16 card into the PCIe X1 slot will break the card or bend the pins. A PCIe x1 card will work in a PCIe x4, x8 or x16 slot, though. Similarly, the AGP and PCI slots are not compatible with the PCIe x16 card design.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Type of video card


The Compaq Presario SR1630NX desktop computer, has a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard, for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The Presario SR1630NX came out in 2005.
PCI-Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007.

The Presario SR1630NX uses the PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, however.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just won't get the full capability, of a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

Will you notice?

NO

Intel 945 gccr has pci x16 slot for graphic card or not


The Intel 945GC Express Chipset contains two separate, mutually exclusive graphics
options. Either the integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics controller is used or a PCI
Express x16 add-in card can be used. When a PCI Express x16 add-in card is
installed, the Intel GMA 950 graphics controller is disabled.
The 9500 should work even though it is pci-e 2.0..i would go with a brand like BFG as they offer a lifetime warrantee..

Can I My motherboard support a PCI video card?


Hi there.
Your motherboard will support both kinds of Video card.
PCI is quite old and is only supported up to 128MB of video memory.
PCI Express is new technology and is by far the best card that you can buy giving you the best graphics experience and can support up to 1GB of graphics memory making it good for gaming.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
