Because your computer is an All-in-one you may have problems finding one on the secondhand or retail market. The best thing I can suggest is to remove the old one( or at least get a really good look at it and) check the size in mm. Then buy a compatible board and CPU. For the heat from a failed fan to have fried the board it would need to have been forced to stay on. There is a thermal cutout and a fan cutout built in to the board. Try just replacing the fan first and see if that helps.It could be the power supply unit that has failed and that is why it doesn't start up now.

SOURCE: Graphics Card Compatibility with Asus M2A-MX motherboard

Hi Anli!

Well, any GPU with pci expess will be compatible thit that mobo of your.

Its not easy to recomend any specific, it all depends of what you needs are.

Just make sure that the card you upgrade with is for an pci express slot.
A verry good GPU coast around 150-200 euros, a top GPU card cost 400-600 euros
There are ATI cards and there are Nvidia cards, both will suit with your MoBo as long as they are for pci express.

Good luck with your new card M8!

please take a moment and rate my answer

SOURCE: Replacing the motherboard and/or cpu on an Emachine T2958

Your motherboard can handle a P4 2.8Ghz chip with 1MB cache or you could go to the P4 3.06Ghz chip with 512KB cache. And either one would give you a bit of a performance improvement. I think the bigger question would be: is there any place locally where you could get a screamin' deal on a motherboard/CPU package that would still support the memory your currently have?

A motherboard replacement would not require you go purchase a new retail MS OS. It would require re-activation of your current product though which could entail a toll-free phone call to Microsoft and your existing product key.

SOURCE: graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series

Your board has an AGP 8x inteface slot, the ATI Radeon 9550 graphics card has a RAMDAC Clock Speed of 400 MHz and 256 mb of DDR SDRAM memory onboard, would be a good upgrade, for about 60 bucks. Your board has 4 memory slots and will support up to 4 gigs of ram.(you will need a 450 watt power supply )
For best performance, memory should be installed in pairs.
CRUCIAL 2 X 1mb Part #: CT2KIT12864Z40B • DDR PC3200
would be a good choice.

Hope this helps...and answers your queastion.

Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?

The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

2) PCI-Express:

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

Can i buy a fan for my g4mx440 graphics card,i broke fins when cleaning it

if that fan comes off, that is, if it has screws to remove it then yes. just buy the same size fan. most likely any computer repair shop will have a "junk" vid card they would likely let you have. or maybe charge you a dollar or 2 for it. then take it home and switch fans. but make sure to get the same fan. or you could just bring your card there and ask repair shop for a fan like that. brand new i don't think it will be over $5. for a small fee they will likely even replace it for you right then and there. i know i would likely charge you less than $10 to place a new fan in there. for a used one it would be about $5 or less. hey gotta get a little for replacing it.

1 Answer

The monitor will not get a connection. I need to know where the video card is located.

This is eMachines Support, T6420 desktop computer>Specifications, and downloads page for the User Guides,

The eMachines T6420 does not come with a graphics card from the factory.
It comes with Integrated Graphics.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard

The GPU is soldered to the motherboard.
(Graphics Processing Unit,

someone has installed a graphics card, into the PCI Express x16 slot on the motherboard.

You can determine real easily if your computer is using Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card.

If it is using Integrated Graphics, the monitor will be plugged into the I/O area, on the back of the computer, and into a VGA port,

(I/O area;

I/O = Input/Output

The I/O area, is the area that has the rectangular metal shield, and Input/Output devices are plugged into this area.

Devices such as a Keyboard, Mouse, Printer, and so on )

HOWEVER, with the motherboard used in an eMachines T6420, the I/O area could also have a white DVI port.

This was an option offered. The DVI port still connects to the Integrated Graphics on the motherboard.

The eMachines T6420 uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
(Micro Star International, Inc.)

The above link is to,
1) Show the motherboard
2) Provides a link to the Motherboard Manual

Looking at the photo of the motherboard, you will see two long White slots.
Above these two slots you will see a longer White slot.

The bottom two white slots are PCI expansion slots.
The top longer slot is a PCI Express x16, expansion slot.

This is where a PCI Express graphics card would go.

I would like you to scroll to the bottom of the page, to the Product Resources heading.

Under it is a link to the Motherboard Manual, for the MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as K8NGM2-L

Left-click on the blue - MSI K8NGM2 Series Manual.

You will be looking at a blank white page, as the PDF file downloads in the background.
Took 34 seconds with a medium speed DSL connection, for me to download it.

No Signal on the monitor, means the monitor is Not receiving a video signal.

1) Check the monitor cable if it is removable. Use it on another working computer to insure it is good.

2) If the monitor cable proves to be good, the next area to check would be the graphics.

If the computer is using Integrated Graphics, and no one has installed a graphics card, the test would be to install a graphics card, and plug the monitor into it.

Computer off, unplugged from power, Anti-Static precautions are observed before reaching inside the computer, and handling the graphics card.

I don't think the problem is the graphics. Could be wrong, but we'll see.
Let's carry the diagnosis past the graphics for now.

I think the problem could be due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak Voltage power rail.

Enough power to light lights, and spin fans (Perhaps), but not enough to turn the Processor on.
(Fans may be spinning, or may just spin a few times, and stop)

1) ALL the lights use Less than 1 Watt of power
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.

Continued in an additional Comment.

Hello my friend,you need to know that your motherboard supports card in a PCI Express X16 v1.0a that means that you can buy any card you want but the new cards are v2.0-2.1 so maybe will work on your motherboard but your motherboard will limit their bandwidth and probably if you want a new card for gaming you will need and power supply if you have less that 450W.So you understand that changing a graphic card and have good perfomance have a lot of factors(motherboard,powersupply,a good cpu) but if you want just to upgrade your card to a little better without the need change anything else (or if you have a good power supply) i recommend you Radeon HD 4850 For ~$110 or if you looking for something cheaper Radeon HD 4670 For ~$65

Remove everything except CPU and 1 stick of RAM. Attach monitor to onboard graphics and under Integrated Peripherals in BIOS there SHOULD be option for display, it needs to be set to PEG so it looks for a PCIe graphics card first. If you still get no picture, DOA motherboard.

Graphic card problem

Hi BIOS21, I know this much. I know you're motherboard can not use a PCI-Express video card. You're board can not support SLI. I know from looking & reading the manual for the MSI KM4-L you're board supports an AGP video card. I also know some AGP video cards need extra power for them to function. This varies from card to card. You did find an open power port on you're AGP NVIDA 6600 256MG 128bit card. So plug in the power cord. Every AGP card receives power from the AGP port. Enough to run the fan. Depending on the card it may also need more power provided by the system to function. This is you're case. The power connector would not be on the card if it was not needed. Other AGP cards use the same power cord as a floppy drive. (Just so you know).

This appears to be what you are looking for, however there seems to be three different models of that motherboard so be sure that you are looking at the correct model board.
