By the specs your machine doesn't support AGP so you'll have to go with a PCI card with S-Video out. This link will give you a list of ATI Radeon cards available on ebay to accomplish this task.

NOTE: That list will also bring up a list of PCI-E cards, your machine requires PCI, make sure you select the correct model.

Good luck!

Can video card be upgraded in emachine el1358g-51w


yes you can upgrade the graphics card, you have integrated graphics but you can purchase a PCI-E graphics card and bypass the on board graphics but keep in mind you'll have to buy a "low profile" graphics card as there's not much room in your case and a full size card will not fit.

Monitor not working with desktop T6410. been working fine but won't work today. it say no signal, R G B and monitor shuts off


Most likely you have an integrated video card. I would suggest taking out the ram and see if your machine beeps. We know it is not the monitor itself. Since its an integrated video card off the board try using a PCI spare video card if you have one or an AGP card and restart the computer and see if you have video. The bummer about these machines is that you have to replace the board to repair this or use an external video card that will work with your machine. AGP or a PCI slot has to be available and it has to work with your make and model computer. Contact support online and see what upgrades are available.
Personally integrated hardware is a pain to deal with. Factory hardware is something you cannot get over the counter often times if your lucky you may be able to get a PCI card to work. John

I just want to know if I can upgrade the processoer and if so to what GHz? Can the motherboard support a PCIe 2.0 video card? emachine ET1831-01


First, yes, you can upgrade to a dual core pentium 2.93 GHZ..model E6500
as for video, yes, you can use a 2.0 pci-e video card as long as it is a 1x or a 16x standard. Those are the only standards supported by your computer, so if it is a pci-e 4x then it won't work, at least not for long...incompatible bus architecture.
I hope this helps !

I don't so much have a problem. It's more of a question. I need to know what graphics cards are compatible with an emachine w3107, or atleast what makes one compatible so i know what to look for.


You currently have a NVIDIA GeForce 6100, if you have not upgraded already. You will need to be looking for any NVIDIA video card, and you can follow this link to see what you can get:
http://www.nvidia.com/content/HelpMeChoose/fx2/HelpMeChoose.asp?lang=en-us

unfortunately it does not say how many WATTS your power supply is on the emachine website so please make sure you see the requirements for the video card and see how many WATTS are require. You may need to upgrade your power supply.

Hope this helps, and I hope you find what you need and enjoy it! Please don't forget to rate, Thanks!

I want to install a video card on my e machine T3882. cpu currently runs on a onboard graphics controller/


First, look in your manual and find out what kind of Graphics connector you have. You have either AGP or, the more common PCIe. PCIe is very fast and very reliable. You will have no trouble installing it as long as you match up the connectors exactly. Same applies for AGP which is still a very viable video source, just a little older and would be the first to go with newer motherboards. Once you install your new board you may have to go into BIOS and let them know you are using an external card, but I doubt it.

I going to buy a emachine et116107 today and i


That particular model has PCI-Express slot for optional upgrades. So if you decide to upgrade the graphics look for anything with a PCI-E label or PCI-Ex16. If you do get a new card make sure to disable the onboard graphics in the system BIOS prior to installing new card. Instructions can be found via google search

EMachine Video Card upgrade


Ok so are you getting video from the card? Look in system information and see what graphics hardware the computers says is installed. Are you replacing a video card or did you add a card to the system? If you are adding a card make sure that you change the settings in the BIOS to boot first on AGP/PCI-E express slot. Make sure that fast write settings and bus speed settings are compatible with your card. For example if you purchased a 8X AGP card and your computer only does 4X the card may not work. Double check that you are trying to install the correct drivers for your card and operating system.
