Emachines T6524 won't reboot after automatic update. I get the windows screen when I turn it on, and everything seems fine, then the screen goes black and I get the no signal message.


You should try to boot in safe mode without the card removed..If this got on after an update it is possible (almost sure) it messed up with your graphic card driver and now it needs to be reinstalled > To do so ..try to boot in safe mode...To do that press the key indicated on screen for boot menu and choose safe mode ...usually it is f8 key or f12 ..depend on the model .If it seams not to be able to find the safe mode boot ..try to stop the computer by unplugging it ..This will force it to stop improper way ..and will show the screen for safe mode and other ways to boot-up .select the first safe mode ..and let it start ..This mode will not load any drivers and work just with the minimum needed for to start .Go to control panel ...remove programs ..and remove the graphic card driver from the list ..after that if you have the disk insert it and run the driver again in original ..If you do not have it look for it on the manufacturer's site ..and download it ..
If you need help with the driver ..let me know exact model of the computer ..and if it is not an on board card I need to know the exact model of the video card ..

I have a dell precision 450, i play games on my computer, i run most games fine but games like call of duty 4 and guild wars crash for no reason my computer has all the recommended specifications and my...


Theoretically, your computer should have no problem running these programs. However, after researching the Dell Precision 450 specs, I found that it is a business machine with a quadro graphics card. This card is not targeted at gaming applications such as an Nvidia GeForce. This link will explain the differences. The graphics card itself may be causing the problem if the graphics drivers are crashing. This manifests as everything going black and no keys working. Also, if it is the stock card, it barely has enough graphics memory to run guild wars. You could try updating the graphics drivers from Nvidia. You could also get a new graphics card that is designed for gaming.

Another solution that you could try is updating the games by downloading patches for your games.

I have nvidia 9400gt 1gb.i have problem with graphics when i played any game , game graphics was poor.i can't see any thing,plz tell me what i'll do.


9400gt is a low-medium end model and is not capable of playing new games that demand high graphic capabilities properly

try lowering all the graphic settings of your games
and update your driver to the latest possible

Games.


Mike,
Good holidays
This particular problem, need a particular atention, some games show this problem, when the Video Card is not supported, or video driver, is not updated. you should see if your version of drivers, are updated, and Direct X to 9c. according with recomendation on the game programming. (time to change to a good video card) or download any update for this game sometimes should fix problems.
