Dear cgb1981; A lot of times graphic cards do conflict if one of the drivers gets corrupted. Try this: Reinstall the driver for the 7600gt card from the CD it came with. Most CDs will Auto-run upon insertion into the drive. It will detect the 7600gt. Click to install driiver. If that doesn't work, check BIOS and choose DEFAULTS for all screens. But the driver is the first culprit. Good luck.

How can I get a geforce 7600 gt graphics card to work in a el1333g-01w emachine


1) Did you install the drivers off of the installation CD disk, FIRST?
THEN physically install the graphics card?

If not you get a Driver Conflict.

When a device is installed, (Such as a graphics card, for one example), Windows breaks it's neck to find matching Drivers.

If you install the graphics card first, THEN the drivers, Windows will have already looked for THE drivers, and not found them.

Windows will then go through it's THOUSANDS of generic one size fit's all drivers, and match drivers up to the GeForce 7600GT graphics card.

This = No

Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

Driver conflict.


IF, this is what has transpired you need to;

A) Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open. FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions. Unplug the monitor from the 7600GT. Remove the GeForce 7600GT.

B) Leave the case open.
Press, and hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this procedure 2 more times.

(IF,
1) You press the Power On button in, and the Power On LED light comes on, then after a few seconds goes out,...

2) And the same scenario happens again for the Second time, you press, and hold the Power On button in,....

3) See if it lights up again for the Third time. If so, hold the Power On button in again, until it goes out.

You are draining residual power. Don't worry about the CMOS Battery at present )

This action resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.
In otherwords back to the Nvidia GeForce 6100 integrated graphics on the motherboard.

It also clears CMOS Error Codes.

C) Plug the monitor into the VGA port, in the I/O area at the back of the computer.
Plug the computer into power.

WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Windows should load. After Windows is fully loaded, put the Installation CD Disk in the optical drive, and load ALL software.
(Drivers, Graphics User Interface, etc)

Let the computer run for a few minutes.
Now turn the computer off normally. Unplug from power. Observe Anti-Static Precautions, and reinstall that GeForce 7600GT.

Plug the monitor into the 7600GT. Plug the computer into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Should get in the taskbar at the bottom, "Found new hardware", and perhaps another one, "Found GeForce 7600GT device"

Immediately go to the Nvidia graphics user interface, and open it up.
Set the graphics card to it's optimum performance.

(Also make SURE the Screen Resolution is set to what the monitor uses.

Right-click on empty area of desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.
Move the Screen resolution slider to the appropriate screen resolution.
Left-click on Apply.
Then left-click on OK.

Also make sure in the box under Color quality, that it states
Highest (32 bit) Use the blue down arrow to the right of the box, if it isn't. Left-click on Highest (32 bit)

For additional questions post in a Comment.
Would appreciate it if you would reply back in a Comment, as to your findings.

Regards,
joecoolvette

{To add;
Sometimes a computer has to be shut all the way down, after all of the above, and wait 60 seconds.
Then turn the computer on.

Sometimes you have to do this twice. Then Windows and BIOS catch on }

It doesn't sound good. If you have an onboard adapter you could try that and see if it has the same problem.
You could also remove the software, get the newest driver for your card (visit nvidia.com) and reinstall it, but I really doubt that will take care of it.
PNY generally has a good warranty on their cards, (5 years I think) If you have a dated sales receipt it's worth investigating.but even if it's dead and there is no warranty new cards can be found at very reasonable prices. If your mainboard is more than a year old, make sure you get a PCIE version 2.0 card (which is backwards compatible with PCIE 1.0) The newest 2.1 cards won't work at all on many older mainboards, and might even cause damaged to the difference in voltage.

Capacitor Explosion/Replacement(?)


Try using the integrated display of the motherboard. If you get a display then as you mentioned that one of the the capacitors has overheated and cracked. Just replacing the capacitor does not guarantee repair because of the chain affect some other unots on that circuit might have conked out too........sodeep

Upgrading video card


Unless you are working with 3D models your gains in upgrading your VGA card is minimal as photoshop is knowns to be more dependent on the size of memory, speed of memory installed on your machines as well as the speed of the hard disk. The processing power of the CPU also can be an important factor than the graphic card.

However if you are set on going for a new graphic card, I would advise you that you get a new card such as the 8600GT or the ATI 3850 (Similar in price but faster than the 8600GT and 7600GT and uses the same or less amount of watts!, and also does not need a the 6pin connector for additional power).

Going back to your power issue, you have not stated your power supply's wattage or amperage, or if the power supply is generic or branded all which influence the decision to get a new power supply. However if you have a power supply that provides a true 300W you should be fine to run any of the cards stated above.

With regard to the bus issue, if you have a PCI-Express bus you should be fine in getting any of the new cards, but if you have AGP you will be more limited, though i know there are 7600GT (old stock) which are for the AGP slot, and only AMD (ATI) released there R2600 range for the AGP slot.

Hope the information is useful :)
