I have replaced memory from 1gb to 2gb, replaced my DVD RW, changed my graphic card from original GeForce 7300 to GeForce 8500 GT and now my computer will not start. Tried to revert back all but no success. Before changing graphic card I disabled old one (as I don't have physically the driver) but not deleted it. Computer fan is working, power ok, keyboard not responding and nothing on screen. No idea where is the problem ? Thanks in advance

i have a 7300gt nvidea in mine right now... ok, but not the best. runs dx9. and it helps to get the bios update from the emachines site to help with nvidea compatibility. To run most games now, you might need more ram, and for the price, a barebones with your old parts thrown in might be a better deal. The 7300gt is pretty cheap if you are just looking for a quick cheap upgrade for now. It works with the original 300 watt psu and works ok for me with 2.5 gb ram (2-4 gb extra ram realllly helps!). I think tiger direct has some nice deals on barebones and cards, it kinda changes daily.
Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?
Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).
hello, that sounds right because the system you are reffering to is an "Everex IMPACT GA3400" by default this 512mb of RAM but 128mb of it is shared for your video card hence leaving you with 384mb.

i would recommend that you visit crucial.com or newegg.com for memory upgrade which will improve your new PC's experince.
your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.
your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)
DUE you're going to work with graphics files you need a good HDD (capacity) 500 GB will be great Memory at least 1GB and above Processor 3.0 Ghhz and above DVD Drive (any double layer) Sound card (on board is enough), however you can improve later adding a new one, but you don't need that) Good Graphics card (At least 256 MB)
