Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I was attempting to add a video card to an emachines T5246. Now the system will not boot up. There is no beep and the monitor does not display anything. The monitor's power light is on, however.
Here is what i did to bring th PC, while it was working correctly, to its current state:
Disabled the video driver. ****probably should have waited until I had the new card driver installed, then I should have disabled the onboard graphics driver.****
Turned off PC.
Physically installed vid card 8800gt 512.I have installed numerous graphics cards in the past few years and that card had woked in that system a few months prior. I recently got a new gaming pc with a better card so I was putting the 8800gt 512 back into the emachine T5246.
Attempted to reboot PC.
PC condition is now as described previously.
Attempted to undo....removed graphics card and attempted to boot up.
I checked and resecured all connections attached to mobo.
PC is still inoperative. The PSU unit fan comes on as well as the hard drive.
Any assistance would be appreciated. I do not have a boot disc for it.
To reset bios with jumper settings: there is jumper on the board that has to be moved to the other adjoining pins, and then back. Hopefully it is marked. For sure check your owners manual, or google your mobo for the location of the jumper and exact instructions.
