Re: EMachine Help

If you took the pc in to a repair shop and they diagnosed that as the problem. You will have to install the new vieo adapter in the computer. Then plug in the monitor to see something on the screen. You can go into the bios to disable the other. Now if you are going by hear say and an actual tech did not check your system it does not necessarily have to be the video adapter at fault. You will need to have it checked out to validate that. Now if you did install the card you will have to plug the monitor in the new adapter. If the problem is still there you have another issue with the pc. Please comment on what the case may be. I would be able to better help you.

Hope this helps you

When turning on my emachine desktop the monitor states no signal someone suggested that I need a fuse, Where would that fuse be located?

hello if the monitor wanted a fuse .. then it wont turn on.. which means its getting power !!!
you problem is the pc ,or monitor cable fell out at the back of pc, or you may have a defective memory stick ,that if the pc is getting power and you are seeing light on the pc.. if the pc is dead nothing lighting.. no beeps, not even the optical not opening then you have a power supply problem,
if u had a surge be it went dead try this, unplug system for 5 mins, the plug it back in, try powering on.. if still nothing , most likely , memory,video card or power supply is defective, but i think. its your memory if getting power

MS-7207 K8NGM2-H MOTHERBOARD Model:K8NGM2 -H E machines T6528 no video will display tried PCI -express video card and still no display. Monitor tested on other pc and works fine

If you are using a PCI-e video card, you will need to install a driver. If you have onboard video on your motherboard and that isn't working, I would say that your motherboard is fried and you need a new one or a new machine.

T6528 has no video. Using a working monitor, tried differnet video cards but still no video.

1) So you tested the monitor on a working computer? Reason I ask, is that you will be testing the monitor cable also.

If it is a monitor with a detachable monitor cable, suggest you test the cable also.

2) Each graphics (Video) adapter card has it's own specific driver.
The driver should be installed Before, the graphics card is installed.

Otherwise Windows will 'break it's neck', to find a compatible driver, from it's thousands of generic drivers.
Won't do. You will get a driver conflict.

Windows: 'Which driver do I use? These or THESE?"

Kinda' hard to do, since you can't see graphics on the monitor.

I would like to suggest you diagnose the Power Supply to start with. (After checking the monitor cable)

It may seem that the Power Supply is okay, but it could have a weak Voltage power rail.

Enough power to light LED lights, and spin fan's, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) ALL the LED's use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.
(Lower for older Processors)

The eMachines T6528 comes with an AMD Athlon 64 3500+, processor, that fits in a Socket 939 processor socket,

1) eMachines Support > T6528 > Specifications,

2) Information on the AMD Athlon 64 3500+,

Can use up to 67 Watts, or up to 89 Watts. Depends on what Core it is.
(Clawhammer Core, Newcastle Core, Winchester Core, Venice Core, Manchester Core, or San Diego Core)

(Also uses an MSI K8NGM-L motherboard. Below for specifications only, )

A) Not to down eMachines, (I have an old T1090 in my shop that works great), but they are budget computers, and use budget parts.
One being the generic Power Supply that is used.

B) The computer could be dirty inside, as well as inside the Power Supply.

The cooling components for the SMPS, (Switched-Mode Power Supply,) are it's Fan, and Heatsink's used inside.

Once a layer of 'Gunk' covers these cooling components, the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

Heat = Wasted Energy

The more heat, the more the Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power.
Eventually hardware components inside the Power Supply fail, and the Power Supply is toast.

You can test the Power Supply voltages.
You can use a multimeter if available, or an economical unit can be purchased for around $5 to $12, that will suffice for testing.

You can also use a power supply tester.
One example:

Voltages produced by the SMPS used in a T6528 are,
A) 3.3 Volts (DC)
B) 5 Volts (DC)
C) 12 Volts (DC)

Testing should be done on the 12 Volt power rail.
11 to 13 Volts indicates a good Power Supply.
Less than 11 Volts means it's time to replace.

Orange wires are 3.3 Volts
Red wires are 5 Volts
Yellow wires are 12 Volts.

All the color coded Voltage wires, lead back to one individual power rail, for each Voltage produced by the Power Supply.

You can test any Yellow wire to test the 12 Volt power rail.

With a multimeter, the Positive (Red) probe lead connects to the power wire to be tested.

The Negative (Black) lead connects to ANY Ground wire.

ALL Black wires are Ground wires.
They all go back to one central Ground source inside the Power Supply.

[Power Supply unplugged from power before attaching probe leads. After connecting, the power supply is plugged back into power, and the Power On button is pushed ]

(Two C cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

Im trying to install a new video card on an emachine and i keep getting a no signal input on the monitor. thats what i started with.

Is the new video card compatible with your motherboard?If it is , can you try connecting your monitor VGA Cable from your video card properly?

And also if you are using a PCI Video Card you should try to install it to another slot if theres an instance that a PCI Slot doesnt work.

Not likely, if it powers up and the LED blinks indicating that the hard drive is working then its most likely the video card or the motherboard.

If you press power and you hear the fan and hard drive power up the power supply is working if none of that happens then you know that the power supply is done they are cheap $40 at newegg.

If you get a picture at first but then it goes black it could be a driver that is not compatible. If so you will have to go into "safe mode" and see what isn't loading correctly.

Had a similar issue with a computer swapped out the video card and the power supply, wasn't worth putting money into a new motherboard.

Just for fun make sure none of the pins are bent on the connectors

I would like to upgrade my emachines t6528 pc with geforce 6100 chipset, to someting like NVIDIA GeForce series 7800, 7900, 7950 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800 or better Can it be done? If so, is it just...

First you need to make sure that motherboard has a PCI-Express slot

If it has that then you will be able to upgrade to any card you want willing your power supply has enough wattage to fuel the card

Most higher end video cards need 450W power supply's to operate without problems

If you meet both of those requirements then your good to go :)

Replaced power supply on T2240 emachine now cant get onboard video" or any video,also tried PCI video card with no results. Need video to see if machine can boot

the fact that your not getting any video is that your computer is not booting or it can't boot right now.

might be best if you found someone to test and help you with it or if you took it to someone.

E machines t6528 video card

  Hi, slot video card can handle a multitude of tasks. If you want, you can now buy one that'll handle the graphics processing for your computer. This is a fine and wise solution if you have modest graphical needs. After all, if a spot of word processing, watching the odd DVD and a little e-mailing is all you have in mind, then on-board graphics (VGA Port of motherboard) is fine.
  Therefore, on-board graphics is fine if your intended use is modest, not so if you're likely to even entertain the idea of playing a relatively modern 3D game with the settings on a decent level, or undertake any task that involves a degree of graphical work.

  • It depends on your motherboard. If what type of video card it supports. If you have an older motherboard then it's either AGP or PCI. New Motherboards supports PCI-Express graphics card. There's also an indication what it supports. There's a label on it if it's AGP or PCI.

Sorry, it doesn't seem like it is a problem that can be solved here. Sounds like time to go to the repair shop.
