Where is the video card located at in the box?


Some machines have the video built into the motherboard.
Best way to tell is look at the Video port on the back of the machine.
(Where the monitor cable plugs in)
If the Video connection point is in within a card slot it is easy to spot what position and where. If the Video connection port is in line with the motherboard. It is built into said motherboard. And yes if you have an available slot open you could upgrade the video should it be built into the motherboard.
Here is a link for slot types

Hope this helps.

I install new video card GT240 and the computer cannot detect the new hardware only blank screen can be seen but the harddrive is working and you can here it boot up


if you had an onboard graphics card, one that was built into the motherboard then connect the vga lead back to that and see if you get an image on the screen then. If you do you will need to go into your bios and under advanced options change the default vga to pci/agp

then when windows starts it will start from your new graphics card and not your old one

Hey, my computer screen doesn't work when my computer starts ?


If you have hooked up the computer to another monitor and you still have no display, then your video might be bad. If you have display with another monitor, then you know your monitor is bad or the connection is bad. Be sure to check the connection, sometimes the video cable loosens and if that is the case you won't have any display.
I haven't looked up the "specs" on this system, but if you don't have any display with another known good monitor that works, you will have to determine if you have a video card or onboard video. If you need to replace the video, and have onboard, you need to have an open slot on the motherboard, there should be an open PCI or VGA slot available for a video card. In any case, if there is onboard video, you need to disable it in the setup after you install the new video card. Good luck hope this helps.

Hi,

You may have a couple of problems here, with you saying it`s a gaming PC it most likely has a graphics card installed which will likely only have outputs for DVI or HDMI, VGA is not usually supported on newer cards. What you need to look for is on the back of the PC where you are plugging in your monitor are you inserting the plug vertically, i.e. straight up and down? if so this means you are connecting to the motherboards onboard graphics which will be disabled if you have a graphics card. If you are using a VGA monitor then most likely it is a blue plug on the board you are plugging into, if you have a graphics card then the most common outputs are what is called DVI which is a slightely bigger white plug. You need to look slightly lower down from the plug you are connecting to and see if there are one or two DVI sockets which will be mounted horizontally. If this is the case then the motherboard socket will be disabled, there are a couple of solutions to this though, you can remove the graphics card which will re enable the onboard graphics and allow you to use your monitor, you can buy a monitor with a DVI input or you can buy from most PC stores a DVI to VGA converter which lets you use your existing monitor with your graphics card although the frame rates and refresh may not be so good, the latter is the method I would recommend to get going.

Hope this helps and thanks for using fixya

Monitor will not come on


Try to remove the wire connecting from the monitor to motherboard if there was a display in the monitor then no problem with your monitor. Try to check the battery in motherboard.

Onboard VGA port disabled, in Vista


You should try to disable it in the hardware list.

E-machines have an odd bios where not all the functions of the motherboard are available to the user.

If you can find the make and model of your board there is a good chance you can find the PROPER bios for it.

Emachines use motherboards from a variety of regular motherboard suppliers

My older e-machine has a hacked bios so that I can alter ALL the settings.

Installing new Window xp and other devices didnt works


take the side of the computer off and look for the model number on your motherboard. you need to know if your using a network card or if its onboard Lan. if everything you need is onboard all you need to do is search your motherboard number on the internet and download the drivers. you need can select what you need, sound, lan etc. your goning to have to use a friends pc so you can download these files. when your Lan is installed go to the microsoft webpage and get the latest updates, that will solve the usb in your device manager
