Could be a cmos battery, try changing it. Sometimes that works.

Re: emachines wont boot

Bad capacitor(s) on the motherboard can cause this problem, corrupted BIOS maybe... try flashing BIOS.
Probably the CPU if your not getting any error code beeps on startup.. NO Processor for the BIOS instructions thus no Beeps !

Trouble with install second video card HD 5450 to emachines t6532

Unclear of your statement. (More like run-on sentence)

Problem heading statement reads,
"trouble with install second video card HD5450 TO eMachines T6532"

Need clarification

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

(Click on photo for a better image)

Has one long white PCI Express x16 slot. (Expansion Slot)
Only uses one graphics card at a time, will Not use two.

[Graphics card / Video card. Same/same]

Therefore I surmise you are not referring to adding a Second graphics card, but are referring to;

A) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.


B) This is the second ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.
Had one before. Removed it, and are using a new one.


C) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.
It is not an ATI Radeon HD5450 like the old one is.

Know this;
1) You can ONLY use the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics,
OR the graphics card.
You CANNOT use both.

When using a graphics card the monitor is plugged into it.
You cannot plug into the onboard graphics of the motherboard, with it installed in the computer.

Said differently;
With the graphics card physically installed in the computer, you cannot just unplug the monitor from the graphics card; and plug it into the OnBoard graphics of the motherboard.

[Also; Computer on, you CANNOT unplug a monitor, and plug it back in.
This = NO ]

2) Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device is the graphics card.
The version of Windows operating system was not stated.

Did you install the software from the Installation Disk? (CD/DVD)
Has the drivers on it, and the user interface software.
User interface software for an ATI graphics card, is Catalyst Control Center.

(Just to note; I'm using a Powercolor Radeon HD5450 graphics card, right now.
I'm using dual monitors.

HP 2009M - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an RCA L26HD31 HDTV as the main monitor. (26 inch HDTV)
They work GREAT! ]

(It is an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card just like yours, IF yours has 1GB of graphics memory.

Doesn't matter what graphics card manufacturer, makes that HD5450, it is still an ATI (AMD) design.

Powercolor, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond Multimedia, Mickey Mouse, or Goofy. It is still an ATI graphics card )

The ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, has to have a MINIMUM power requirement of 350 Watts.
Does your power supply have 350 Watts or more?

If it is the original power supply, the answer is NO.

Back then power supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the true maximum rated wattage.

Sold more power supplies.

Power supply rated at 250 Watts?
More like 60 to 70 percent of that.

Divide 250 by 10.
= 25.
Take that times 6. = 150 Watts (60 percent)
Times 7 = 175 Watts (70 percent)

Would like your opening statements clarified.

Modem on and nothing on screen and fan runs loud

It sounds like one of three things. Two are pretty unlikely.1. RAM has gone bad. Really unlikely. Usually if this happens the computer will not boot but beep at you.2. Video Card has gone bad. Also unlikely. Usually the computer will sound like normal except you won't have any video.
3. Motherboard has gone bad. Most likely. The Motherboard has either suffered a voltage shock or has blown a component. The only real way to get this repaired to by going through Gateway / Emachines.

My emachine T6216 starts up with fan on high speed but that's it; no screen nothing. I have reseated RAM and cleaned. I swapped out the power supply and it was the same. I added a video card and still...

E-machines won't start
is there an orange light on the on/off button? if there is that means *********** board just went bad, check the capacitors. Capacitors are an inexpensive little component on a PC motherboard, but they can be a costly headache for manufacturers when a whole bunch of them go bad
you can not always detect them but check and see common in a few dell models but the high speed on the fan tells me that's what it is

Power pack fan not booting but there is power on motherboard

Do you mean the power supply fan or the processor fan? Of the assemblies in a desktop, the power supply is the least reliable and the internal fan the most unreliable part. Since a failed fan can allow other parts of the supply to degrade, I recommend replacing the supply, not just the fan.
In eMachines, these are standard form factor (ATX) supplies so you would only need to order the same or higher power rating to have it compatible with your case.

Sytem wont boot

This time your system is very ok... theres a possible reason why its automatically on without pressing the button and cannot see a device even hard disk...
Here is a tip:
1. Check the CMOS Battery maybe its weak, or try to change it a new one, and
2. Change also your power supply it might the current flow of electricity are not normal... i know its ridiculous but i experience just like yours...
