  Hi, slot video card can handle a multitude of tasks. If you want, you can now buy one that'll handle the graphics processing for your computer. This is a fine and wise solution if you have modest graphical needs. After all, if a spot of word processing, watching the odd DVD and a little e-mailing is all you have in mind, then on-board graphics (VGA Port of motherboard) is fine.
  Therefore, on-board graphics is fine if your intended use is modest, not so if you're likely to even entertain the idea of playing a relatively modern 3D game with the settings on a decent level, or undertake any task that involves a degree of graphical work.

  • It depends on your motherboard. If what type of video card it supports. If you have an older motherboard then it's either AGP or PCI. New Motherboards supports PCI-Express graphics card. There's also an indication what it supports. There's a label on it if it's AGP or PCI.

MS-7207 K8NGM2-H MOTHERBOARD Model:K8NGM2 -H E machines T6528 no video will display tried PCI -express video card and still no display. Monitor tested on other pc and works fine


If you are using a PCI-e video card, you will need to install a driver. If you have onboard video on your motherboard and that isn't working, I would say that your motherboard is fried and you need a new one or a new machine.

T6528 has no video. Using a working monitor, tried differnet video cards but still no video.


1) So you tested the monitor on a working computer? Reason I ask, is that you will be testing the monitor cable also.

If it is a monitor with a detachable monitor cable, suggest you test the cable also.

2) Each graphics (Video) adapter card has it's own specific driver.
The driver should be installed Before, the graphics card is installed.

Otherwise Windows will 'break it's neck', to find a compatible driver, from it's thousands of generic drivers.
Won't do. You will get a driver conflict.

Windows: 'Which driver do I use? These or THESE?"

Kinda' hard to do, since you can't see graphics on the monitor.

I would like to suggest you diagnose the Power Supply to start with. (After checking the monitor cable)

It may seem that the Power Supply is okay, but it could have a weak Voltage power rail.

Enough power to light LED lights, and spin fan's, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL the LED's use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.
(Lower for older Processors)

The eMachines T6528 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 3500+, processor, that fits in a Socket 939 processor socket,

1) eMachines Support > T6528 > Specifications,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T6528

2) Information on the AMD Athlon 64 3500+,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_64_microprocessors#Athlon_64

Can use up to 67 Watts, or up to 89 Watts. Depends on what Core it is.
(Clawhammer Core, Newcastle Core, Winchester Core, Venice Core, Manchester Core, or San Diego Core)

(Also uses an MSI K8NGM-L motherboard. Below for specifications only,

http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130041 )

A) Not to down eMachines, (I have an old T1090 in my shop that works great), but they are budget computers, and use budget parts.
One being the generic Power Supply that is used.

B) The computer could be dirty inside, as well as inside the Power Supply.

The cooling components for the SMPS, (Switched-Mode Power Supply,) are it's Fan, and Heatsink's used inside.

Once a layer of 'Gunk' covers these cooling components, the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

Heat = Wasted Energy

The more heat, the more the Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power.
Eventually hardware components inside the Power Supply fail, and the Power Supply is toast.

You can test the Power Supply voltages.
You can use a multimeter if available, or an economical unit can be purchased for around $5 to $12, that will suffice for testing.

You can also use a power supply tester.
One example:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5250576&CatId=5471

Voltages produced by the SMPS used in a T6528 are,
A) 3.3 Volts (DC)
B) 5 Volts (DC)
C) 12 Volts (DC)

Testing should be done on the 12 Volt power rail.
11 to 13 Volts indicates a good Power Supply.
Less than 11 Volts means it's time to replace.

Orange wires are 3.3 Volts
Red wires are 5 Volts
Yellow wires are 12 Volts.

All the color coded Voltage wires, lead back to one individual power rail, for each Voltage produced by the Power Supply.

You can test any Yellow wire to test the 12 Volt power rail.

With a multimeter, the Positive (Red) probe lead connects to the power wire to be tested.

The Negative (Black) lead connects to ANY Ground wire.

ALL Black wires are Ground wires.
They all go back to one central Ground source inside the Power Supply.

[Power Supply unplugged from power before attaching probe leads. After connecting, the power supply is plugged back into power, and the Power On button is pushed ]

(Two C cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

Im trying to install a new video card on an emachine and i keep getting a no signal input on the monitor. thats what i started with.


Is the new video card compatible with your motherboard?If it is , can you try connecting your monitor VGA Cable from your video card properly?

And also if you are using a PCI Video Card you should try to install it to another slot if theres an instance that a PCI Slot doesnt work.

I would like to upgrade my emachines t6528 pc with geforce 6100 chipset, to someting like NVIDIA GeForce series 7800, 7900, 7950 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800 or better Can it be done? If so, is it just...


First you need to make sure that motherboard has a PCI-Express slot

If it has that then you will be able to upgrade to any card you want willing your power supply has enough wattage to fuel the card

Most higher end video cards need 450W power supply's to operate without problems

If you meet both of those requirements then your good to go :)

open up the side door before you do anything else. Look for a stick or RAM that looks like the one your going to be putting in. When you find the extra slot that the RAM is going in, your going to find two latches one on each side of the RAM slot. The memory itself is slotted meaning it can only go in one way. Put the memory in and line up the slot with the hold on the bottom of the RAM. It should snap into place and the latches will hold the memory into place.

As far as the video card is concerned, its going to go into a long white slot, it also can only go in one way, the metal part of the card will face the outside of the back of the computer and the card will snap into place. After you do this you might need to have to put a screw into the metal slot of the video card to keep it in place.

At this point you can hook up the monitor to the external video card and the thing you might have to do is install the drivers for the video card when you get into windows. It might not detect the video card properly which is why you might have to intstall the software for it.

Also do the memory first to make sure the computer sees it and boots up. If it does then turn the computer off and then do the video card. That way if there is a any problems it will be easy to figure out where the problem is right away.

Sorry to have to tell you this ,But if the onboard is shot then you need to replace the motherboard.
No way is more COST effective for the average person,For the above average person get someone to replace the onboardvideo you can order one from the manuf,if not check the chipset.

an easy way to check is if you happen to have a regular vga monitor, hook it up to the computer if you get same results then you'll need to get a new video card.

If you took the pc in to a repair shop and they diagnosed that as the problem. You will have to install the new vieo adapter in the computer. Then plug in the monitor to see something on the screen. You can go into the bios to disable the other. Now if you are going by hear say and an actual tech did not check your system it does not necessarily have to be the video adapter at fault. You will need to have it checked out to validate that. Now if you did install the card you will have to plug the monitor in the new adapter. If the problem is still there you have another issue with the pc. Please comment on what the case may be. I would be able to better help you.

Hope this helps you
