Soundcard/video card advise for emachines pc.

My Emachines pc has an Intel motherboard with integraded graphics and sound. I'm not a big gamer but I am an avid guitarist and would like to run my rig through my pc. The motherboard is a D945GCL. I've upped my ram to 2gb and my speakers are Logitechs Z-2300s. I could use some guidance in deciding which graphic and sound cards are compatable with the motherboard and a Vista Home Premium opsystem. Thanks!

    I want to install a PCIe Video card on my D945GCL mother board. Any recommendations i.e. video ram and/ or brand? I have set the video setup to auto so new video card should be recognized.

You can install a PCI vedio card to enhance video quality. a 128mb will do the thing. The integrated sound card you have is good enough, to maximise the sound install good quality speakers with subwooper or boosters

What type of graphic card are compatable with emachines T3624 Pc's


Hello here are the homepage:

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?modelId=1581

This mainboard has the PCI-e graphic card socket, and a AGP graphic card will not fit and run on it.

A PCI-E graphic card, can be bought in a computer store or online.

Does the pc boot at all ???

If not try to renew the power supply.

Good luck

My emachien1810-01 does nit show any video. Replacing the video graphic card didnot solve the problem


Richard,

Only two things drive video. The graphics card and the motherboard. Sounds like m'board is eligible for a serious tech session.

I want vga&sound drivers for 3260


The eMachines 3260 is a UK model. I don't see driver download support at the UK site.

However the eMachines 3260 uses an Intel D845GVSR motherboard. Let's go to Intel Support, and see if the graphics, and audio drivers are available;

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=%22Intel+Desktop+Board+D845GVSR%22


On this page select the Operating System you are using. I am going to use Windows XP, as an example. (Home Edition or Pro Edition, doesn't matter)

Shows 7 drivers.
Among them are;
1) Intel Extreme Graphics Driver for 845 Chipset-Based Intel Desktop Boards

2) Audio: Realtek* AC97 Audio Driver

Download AND install these two drivers.

Post back in a Comment.

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.

MY SOUND CARD


Hi, you should have the driver CD for soundcard as it is shipped with the new sound card - if not you must download the driver for the soundcard not for the Chipset of the computer. Look at the soundcard - normal the driver manufacturer and model is shown on the "biggest" chip fixed on the soundcard - donwload the driver as shown on the chip of the soundcard from the manufacturer and install. (ensure you select driver for you operating system)

Hope this help.
