Try a Bios reset, this is done by removing the Coin type battery from the mainboard, with the mains unplugged, this should force the motherboard to revert to its factory settings, (IE using the on board video).

hope this helps

I AM REPLACEING THE VIDEO CARD NEED TO NO WITCH ONE TP DISABLE BEFORE I REMOVE THE VIDEO CARD TO INSTALL THE NEW ONE


Before disabling the video card, restart the computer and enter the BIOS settings. Often there is also a setting in BIOS on newer boards that allows the user to set either a PCI card or AGP card as the primary video device. Make sure this is set to your video card, which in your case would be PCI-E Automatic. Power down the computer, plug the VGI cable into the new graphics card and turn the computer on. You should be up and running in a matter of seconds. If you don't have video, turn the computer off by holding the power button in until the computer shuts down. Remove the new card and return VGI cable to original location. Restart the computer and use the driver installation disk that came with the new card. Install the drivers. Shut down the computer and try again with the new card.
NOTE: With the BIOS settings to PCI-E Automatic, the computer will check if a card is installed in the PCI-E slot before going to the integrated graphics. Do not remove the drivers for the integrated graphics, you may need to reuse it at a later time.

Hi drago,

You can find your drivers here:

http://www.evga.com/support/drivers/
Download the drivers you need, and install them manually in the Device Manager.

In Windows 7, goto the Device Manager (click on Start, right click on My Computer, left click on Properties, click on Device Manager) Look for your video cards, click on the + to see which ones are installed.

Once you have the new drivers installed, you may have to uninstall the integrated graphics drivers to force Window to use the new card.

Hope that helps

How do I replace a video card on the emachines T6420


The video on your computer is integrated into the motherboard, so there isn't a video card as such to replace. The motherboard has an available slot (PCI Express, also called PCI-E x16) so that you can install a separate video card, either to fix problems with the built-in video or as an upgrade.

Installing a new video card is just a matter of inserting it into the slot. When you turn the computer on after installation, the new card will be operating. Install the driver software which will be included on a CD so that Windows can work properly with the new card and you will be all set.

Many vendors sell PCI-E video cards in a wide range of features and prices. You may be able to find some locally if you are near a retailer like Best Buy, and online shopping is always available. TigerDirect and Newegg are two companies I frequently buy parts from.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

I am going to install a new graphics card, do i need to disable my integrated card firts and then shut down and install the new one?


In your BIOS it should be set so as to auto detect integrated graphics or AGP.
This is the default setting for HP and Compaq machines.
Install the card and see what happens, if you have no video, shut down the machine and either remove the new card and then set the BIOS to auto detect or if you saw the BIOS splash screen with the new card installed but got no graphics, then again go into the BIOS and set it to auto detect.

Upgrading graphics card


Connect the monitor to the onboard video connector first. then
you need to disable the on-board graphics in the BIOS save the setting and shutdown. Then connect the monitor to the GeForce video connector and boot up then you will get a video signal on the GeForce video card.

No display


In the BIOS, it would be under on board peripherals/devices if it's there at all. On board AGP or something...
If there's no BIOS setting to disable on board video, it should recognize the new card.
This may sound silly but is the card completely seated in the slot? Sometimes it may seem like it is. Something to check anyway...?

I can't get monitor to come on even though the power light is on


Since it's a new card and you know it's working, install it last. Take it out for now and use the integrated video. Start the computer, enter the BIOS setup and disable the integrated video. Save the new settings and shut off the computer. Then put in the new video card and restart.

Radeon 9600 (128mb) detected as sis315 vga (16mb)!!!


The SIS315 is an integrated video card which uses shared RAM in order to work. Most mainboards will automatically turn off the integrated card as soon as an AGP or PCI-e card is installed. Yours may not do this, or maybe the card just needs re-seating as it is not picking it up correctly.
First you need to double check to make sure the new card is firmly in the slot (this is a common problem that is often overlooked) re-seat card and push it firmly and evenly into the slot. Next, on start-up, go into BIOS and make sure all on-board video is disabled. Save and then restart as normal, hopefully it will see your new card and then be looking for the drivers.
It is possible that the BIOS has your on-board video set on auto, which would mean if no other card is present then the PC would automatically go back to on-board video. Which means it can't see your new card, which in turn means it is either not installed properly or it is faulty.
Just out of interest, it may seem a stupid question but you have plugged your monitor cable into your new card and not the on-board socket?
As always much more info is needed for more help
