    ok i am sorry for the discomfort cause by my reply, your computer has two ram slot with each 512 MB of ram installed in it. Your ram specification are DDR2 ram 533MHZ. In order to update ram you will need to take out one of the ram and have to install ram in its place.

    You can buy two 1 gb ddr2 ram for laptop and install these by replacing both of your old RAM. This will make your system upto 2 GB and thats the maximum ram specified by your manufacturer.

    just loaded the new 1gb ram. Great performance and speed. Thanks

T5212 making fan grinding sound possibly from heatsink fan?

In My Humble Opinion, Heather, YOU can fix anything in your computer.

You have replaced a Power Supply, and added a graphics card.

1) The eMachines T5212 Desktop PC uses an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard,

The motherboard supports an LGA 775 processor socket,

Instead of the processor having the contact pins, as in the older Intel Pentium 4 processors (Socket 478), the LGA 775 processor socket has the contact pins.

After the page fully loads click on the third view down, and the left side.
This inside view shows the black rounded air duct, used on the processor fan.

Here is a replacement Heatsink/Fan combo,

It looks as though the unit comes apart. (unscrews)
If so you can just replace the fan itself.

IF not however, it means the finned aluminum Heatsink, AND fan remove.
In this case you have to THOROUGHLY clean the top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink, and apply Thermal Paste properly.
I can guide you.

[ I know you have been following the proper procedures, but I would hate to learn later that you haven't been, and I didn't post;

Follow Anti-Static Precautions
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on your computer, or before taking those parts out of their anti-static bags, or cartons.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return ]

Be sure to clean in-between the fins of the Heatsink, before installing the new fan.

Know you need to get a new computer?
Only if it fits your needs.

For myself it is internet, Youtube, Adobe Photoshop 7, and office programs.
My Pentium 4 HT, model 540j, (3.2GHz), 2GB's of ram memory, and an ATI Radeon 9250, does just fine.

If you are a gamer, and/or use 3D programs, and/or burn videos, then more 'power' is needed. IMHO.

Windows 7? Windows 8? Yeah, whatever.
I have Win7 on my new laptop.
Perhaps one day Windblows will catch up with Ubuntu and the Compiz windows manager, lol!

My T5212 computer doesn't see the 1gb of ram, why?

The RAM mybe be faulty or incompatible/wrong type for your computer.
Check the specification of the RAM that is required for your computer.
If you want to install 2 off 512 Mb RAM make sure the are the same make and model.

I need to know if the CPU speed can be increased to 1GHz or over and that I have put in 2 memory modules of 128MB onto it but only 128MB appears on the System Properties. Irvin.

You are confusing 2 things, CPU speed and Memory or Ram speed.

To keep things straight forward, cpu speed can only be increased by replacing it with a faster cpu.

Ram, as you can see, can be increased by adding faster ram modules.

Go to either of these websites:-

Enter *********** board details or request they scan your computer. Check all the information offered, they will tell you what type and how much ram your motherboard can use.

If you can't increase your ram speed to more that 1Gb, I would suggest it time to invest in a new motherboard/PC rather than spending more on RAM.

There can be a whole load of reason why your second stick of ram doesn't work.

1) it could be broken.
2) It could be the wrong type.
3) You may need to update your Bios to accommodate it. Though this is very unusual.

Put in new power supply. not sure of wiring diagram. now monitor says no input signal. what should it look like? did i miss something?

If my sources are correct, (Haven't worked on one in my shop yet), the eMachines T5212 desktop computer uses an Intel D101GGC2 motherboard.

The Intel D101GGC motherboard is Very similar,

Motherboard Manual - left-click on English Product Guide [PDF], in blue.

Give a few seconds for the first page to come up, (Took 6 seconds for me), and for the PDF file to fully download, before looking through it. (Took 24 seconds for me)

1) Did you make sure the 24 -pin ATX main power cable, is plugged in tight?
Lock on the side is snapped in place?
Page 42.

Closer look at a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector,

2) Did you plug in the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable?

Page 42
That's power for the Intel Pentium D model 805 processor.

Are the cables (Wires) from the Front Panel of the computer, plugged in correctly into the Front Panel header on the motherboard?
Page 37

Are you sure the DDR2 Sdram ram memory module/s (Stick/s) are plugged in tight?

The best method is to remove it, or them, and reinstall.
This way you are assured.

Most of the time a ram memory module, or more than one, will be bumped loose when installing a Power Supply.
