I have an Emachines T6532. The screen keeps "glitching" out on me. Any idea what might be causing this, or how to fix it??


http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y47/beetle665/IMG_4829.jpg

DUDE! You can't post pictures like THAT!

Put sum clothes on that girl!






-> OH,....I'M JUST KIDDING! <-



1) Check the monitor cable.

If attached to the monitor, use the monitor, and cable on a WORKING computer. Same thing? Need a different monitor.

Use a KNOWN to be working monitor cable, if detachable; on your computer.

No? Monitor cable is good?
Go on.

2) We are dealing with a graphics problem.
Next in line is the graphics chipset.

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

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

Clicking on the photo shows a MUCH better view.

You have two white PCI slots at the Bottom, (PCI1 and PCI2), and a white longer PCI Express x16 slot above them.

[The shorter white slot above the long white PCI Express x16 slot, is a PCI Express x1 slot)

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
A term that seldom seems used anymore. Too bad because it explains better.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chipset is part of the motherboard chipset, which is Soldered TO the motherboard.

If the OnBoard Graphics of the motherboard is suspected to be bad, the tech will then use a graphics card; and bypass the Integrated/OnBoard graphics.

You have your choice of using one of the white PCI slots, if available; or the white PCI Express x16 slot.
Posting in case you have a graphics card sitting around.

Anti-Static Procedures are FOLLOWED, with your unplugged from power computer. The graphics card is physically installed.
Monitor attached to graphics card.

When you turn the computer on, the graphics won't be perfect. This is because THE graphics drivers for THAT graphics card; has not been installed yet.

Will sort of look 'Fred Flintstone-sih'
(Color quality will probably be set at 8 bit, instead of 16-bit; and Screen Resolution will be wrong)

That's OK. Right now you are just trying to get graphics.

I'll guide you through installing the drivers.

How can I install a PCIe video card to the riser on an IBM Thinkcentre A-52 computer?


John,

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/guides-and-manuals/default.page?

In the list under the bold red Guides and Manuals subheading,
click on Hardware maintenance manuals.

Click on the blue -> [+] Click for files

Now click on the blue -> Hardware Maintenance Manual
(Above - 41d4550.pdf / 8.53MB )

This is a PDF file. May take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

At the top of the PDF file is the PDF file page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
If you know the page you want you can go to it page, by page, using the Down Arrow, or you can do this;

1) Put your mouse cursor in the PDF file page number box.
Left-click once.
(Anything in page number box is now highlighted in Blue)

2) Type the page number.
3) Press the Enter key.

Also at the top is the Zoom In icon, ( + ), and the Zoom Out icon,
( - ).
Clicking on the Zoom In icon increases the view size.
Clicking on the Zoom Out icon decreases the view size.

Go to Page 263.

The Riser Card, or 'Daughter Card', is supposed to have
ONE -> PCI-Express x16 slot.
(Riser card is pointed out by the number 12 )

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-60400

Scroll the page down. Look under the bold subheading - Slots

"Slot 1: full length, x16 (16 Lane) PCI Express (graphics only)"

However it also states,

"Slot 2: half-length, x1 (1 Lane) PCI Express
Slot 3: half-length, PCI
Slot 4: half-length, PCI"

Hmmmm, okay, let's look at the 'Daughter Card',

http://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-Thinkcentre-S51-A52-PCI-PCI-e-x1-Riser-Card-/300562298930

Scroll the page down to the bottom to the photo.

The long white expansion slot on top is a PCI slot,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

The black 'slot' underneath, is a combo of PCI-Express type expansion slots.

Looking at the contact pins;
A PCI-Express x1 expansion card, would fit in the slot all the way to the right, in the photo.

See the details printed in-between the white PCI slot, and the black slot underneath?

"PCIe x1 - ADD2 - R SLOT"

PCI Express x1 card - Add to the Right Slot

Means to me the entire slot, is used for a PCI-Express x16 graphics card.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCIExpress.jpg

The top Yellow slot is an example of a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Next slot down is an example of a PCI-Express x16 slot.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x1 slot.
Next slot down is a PCI-Express x16 slot.
The last example is a PCI slot.

[Note* Color does not matter of the slots ]

From my perspective of looking at the photo for the Riser Card, I see the PCI-Express x16 slot, (Black), as being too wide in the middle.

Do not see that the gold plated contact pins of the PCI-Express graphics card, will make good contact with the contact pins, in that Black slot.

Haven't worked on a 'Pizza-Box' style of desktop computer in YEARS, so I am kinda' out of the loop.

IF, a PCI-Express graphics card does indeed make good contact, I suggest using a Low Profile one.

Just one example,

I am a gamer and p5vdc-mx has only agp slot and i want 1gb vga card but it is harder to find in agp slot i find only pci express x16 cards can i use riser card to convert agp to pci e x16


Hello
I dont think there are any agp to pci ex riser cards.As pci e x16 is part of the motherboard circutry.

There are pci to agp riser cards.If your going to be playing some of the latest games.Most games in the past 3 yrs require a pci x16 vid card.

I suggest geting another motherboard,chipset,and memory.Along with a Pci e x 16 card min 512mb.

Where is the video card?


The video card is either on a riser card from your motherboard or integrated into your motherboard.
you can easily find out as it is the place your monitor plugs into your computer usualy with a blue 15pin D shaped plug.
or a larger white plug.

O.k..so heres my problem...i just upgraded to a better video card on my gaming computer...and i wanted to put my old video card on my other desktop...its a compaq evo d51c...but i doesnt fit...i found out...


Hi,

PCI-Express videocards will not work in standard, older PCI slots. They are very different interfaces.

You can find older video cards that are PCI, but they are not very fast and have not been popular for ~10 years.

I was just wondering where to put my Graphics card in my computer :S In one of these white slots? The only number i could find on it was E210882


I depends upon the type of graphics card you have purchased. The white slots are PCI expansion slots
and if the there is a longer slot in the middle of the motherboard next to the PCI slots, then it will be a AGP expansion slot.
APG graphics card are better graphics cards and these slots are designed for these graphics cards.

Hi, I have a IBM ThinkCentre M52 and i am wanting to put a graphics card in it but i am unsure where in the machine to put it?


leathalsnipe, a graphics card will plug into an available PCI slot on the Daughter Board.

IF, a PCI expansion slot IS available.

The Daughter Board is an adapter board that plugs into the Motherboard.
It's also referred to as a PCI Riser Assembly.

The Daughter Board, or PCI Riser Assembly plugs into the Riser Slot on the motherboard.
You may have an Ethernet Adapter Card plugged into one of the PCI slots on the PCI Riser Assembly right now.

To avoid confusion download the Hardware replacement guide, so I can show you what I'm referring to;


This is the download page for the Hardware replacement guide, for your ThinkCentre M52 8215 Desktop PC,

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?subcategoryind=0&familyind=241562&brandind=11&doccategoryind=0&modelind=0&doctypeind=8&validate=true&partnumberind=0&sitestyle=lenovo&template=%2Fproductpage%2Flandingpages%2FproductPageLandingPage.vm&operatingsystemind=49980&machineind=241623

On this page click on the blue >

Hardware replacement guide - ThinkCentre A52 (type 8155, 8156, 8157, 8158, 8159, 8160) / M52 (type 8099, 8116, 8215, 9210, 9211) {2006-09-20}

On the next page click on the blue >

39j8231.pdf


This is a PDF file. After you click on the above file name it will take a few seconds before you see the first page come up.
It will also take additional time to fully download the file.
Suggest you let the file download all the way before looking through it.

Go to Page 13. Scroll the page down a little. {Note* Page number in the page number box}

In the top header of the PDF file is a Page Number Box. It is to the Right of the blue Down Arrow.
You can use the blue Down Arrow to go page by page to get to the page you want, or you can use a faster method.

Put your mouse cursor in the page number box
Left-click once
Type the page number
Press the Enter key.

This shows you how to open the computer case cover.
(Computer unplugged from power. Observe Anti-Static Precautions)

Now go to Page 27.
Scroll the page down a little.
Number 2 shows the PCI Riser Assembly removed.

Remove the PCI Riser Assembly to install the graphics card, then reinstall the PCI Riser Assembly back into the Riser Slot on the motherboard.

The graphics card has to be a PCI graphics card.
It also has to be a Low Profile graphics card.
Low in height.
Also cannot be very long in Length.

This is one example of a Low Profile PCI graphics card that should fit inside the computer,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5692361&CatId=3670

Your Power Supply should have enough power for the above graphics card.

Another example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4842979&CatId=3669



I would like you to also download the Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM) for the ThinkCentre M52 8215 desktop computer, (Same link as above)

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?subcategoryind=0&familyind=241562&brandind=11&doccategoryind=0&modelind=0&doctypeind=8&validate=true&partnumberind=0&sitestyle=lenovo&template=%2Fproductpage%2Flandingpages%2FproductPageLandingPage.vm&operatingsystemind=49980&machineind=241623

On this page click on the top file listed,

Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM) (May 2009) - ThinkCentre A52/M52

On the next page go to the heading > File link, and click on the blue >
39j8289.pdf


This HMM will come in handy for you in the future. You can save a copy of this PDF file to your computer.
If you are not aware of how to do this, and wish to know how, please post in a Comment. (Upper right of your page - Comment)

Nvidia graphics card won't fit in asus ncch-dl motherboard


The NCCH-DL has the following slots:

1 - AGP-Pro 8x
(you can use regular AGP cards in here as well as long as you have the little plastic thing that comes with the mobo... you may even be able to without it)

2 - PCI-X

This is NOT PCI-E.

You CAN use regular PCI cards in a PCI-X slot IF the company that manufactured the card left the space between the little metal contacts... unfortunately, many PCI cards are made with the space filled in with useless plastic... I've heard you can cut the little space yourself and it'll work fine... I don't know why it wouldn't but be careful, and of course do at your own risk.

I currently use a regular PCI network card in this slot because the onboard LAN port only has Win64 bit drivers on the web site and it works just fine.

A PCI-E card will NOT work in this slot.

Generally speaking the PCI-X cards you are going to find are riser cards, network cards, firewire cards, and controler cards.

2 - Regular PCI Slots.

I think you know what PCI is.
