EMachine Video Card upgrade

Trying to install new video card into my pc and system will not recognize it. I have an eMachine W3502 and purchased an nVidia GeForce 8400 GS to upgrade from the integrated graphics card (an ATI RADEON EXPRESS 200 Series). I have updated the BIOS from the manufacturers website succesfully, but I'm still not seeing the video card. When I try to install video card software from disk, I get a "can not find any drivers that are compatible with my hardware" message. Suspect it is unable to see video card causing this issue, but unsure. Any help/advice would be appreciated.

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.

You need to install the video driver for your computer- Usually there is a disk with drivers, however you can go to the Emachines support site- http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html and download your drivers

Since you can't upgrade memory on a video card especially if its built on to the motherboard your best bet is to purchase a new PCI video with the proper amount of memory you need and install into your dell PC. you may have to go into the BIOS and disable the on board video card and tell the system to use the new one. Just make sure the new card you purchase has drivers for whatever operating system you are running.

Upgrading an Emachines Me725 Video card


Given that this is a laptop, the video card is probably hardwired to the m-board and, as a result, not a part which is easily removed and replaced with a new card.

You would be better served by contacting the manufacturer, where you will be given a much wider set of options for replacing the video card.

Hopefully, you will get a more robust set of options from which to choose a replacement.

Hi,

You can purchase a new graphics card and install no problem. Dont use S-Video tho, as the quality is not good. HDMI graphics cards are much cheaper these days.

Stay with Nvidia, as the onboard chip for your PC would support this better.

did you already check your BIOS settings? find and go to peripherals, check the settings of your video card maybe it is set to your ON-BOARD vga.change it to [auto] for automatic detect but this information may vary because all BIOS settings are not the same in each every computer.

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

Ok, i have two things to ask 1: Where is the video card on a emachines W3503? 2: Could a video card swap be done between a W3503 and a W3052? Thank you for viewing :)


1. The emachines W3503 has an integrated ATI Radeon™ X300 based graphics card. It has also a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available.

2. The emachines W3052 has a NVIDIA® GeForce®4™ MX graphics card. I'm not sure whether it is integrated or not, but I'm sure that if it is not, it will be an AGP graphics card. Since The emachines W3503 has a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available for installing a graphics card, the swapping of graphics cards between the 2 machines is not possible since they support different types of graphics cards.

Video Card Upgrade Problems


Does this computer have an onboard video card?

If so you will need to disable this feature in the system BIOS.
It should be under onboard devices.
You will need to use the onboard card to enter the system bios and then turn off the onboard card. install the new card and then connect the monitor to it then power on the machine
