Where is the video card on my emachines t6211?

The Video card is intergrated on the board if it has failed you will have to install a new video card there should be some open slots on the motherboard. Tiger direct is a good place to buy but you pick one up a best buy or office depot.

At power up no screen and no beep and no power on led. CD works(door opens) Came up once stayed on all day but when I shut down wont come back up. This is refurbished unit bought from Tiger Direct. Has not...

I would say no, the recovery disk won't help.
You may need the help of a computer savvy friend for what follows.
I would test the computer with a spare power block.
No good?
Power off the computer and unplugit, then
I would remove the processor, put it back and lock it down (Carefull! Reseat the heat sink and chip correctly!). I would remove each memory and put it back and lock it down.
I would go over the motherboard and press down on ANY circuit in a socket (Don't break the board!), reseat all the cards and then test it again.

After all this, if you have problems, it will be the motherboard. It will need to be replaced.

How can i get this new keyboard to operated normally

Try the keyboard on a different computer. If it works ok on the different computer then your computer may be set up for a different keyboard language. (Don't worry... you can set it back to USA in the control panel).

If you try keyboard on a different computer and you still have the same problem, then the keyboard may be defective.

I just got a refurbished laptop from tigerdirect and i cant start up the computer. I can get to the log in screen but it seems there a preset password and log in info. Is there anyway to by pass so I can...

There is but your best bet is to contact tiger direct or the manufacturer of the machine. there might be a simply restore utility. It sounds like you have an open box computer. This is where someone opened the box tried it out and returned it. Refurbished is there was an issue and it was repaired. In bothe cases all major manufactures add software to reset the computer just like it came from the factroy. This is what you should do.

Thanks PJ Please rate my servcies and anything then completely staisifed is not good enough for me. tell me how  Ican fully help you.

Power button on front bezel broke and 2 of the little spider legs broke off. cannot turn computer. need oem button or replacement button. wires are fine. emachines T2042

dude it's probably simpler to get a new case (with a working power botton) that you can use with the internal components than to get a replacement for your power bottom (for which the only feasible option would be emachines and chances are the product could discontinued)
you have a midtower (more than likely is an ATX Case) and you may be able to get one for less than 40 bucks at tiger direct.
putting everything onto the new case may take some time and may cost you extra (get a friend to do it for ya for a few bucks, it's not hard at all but it takes care and patience plus above average knowledge on computers)

E-Machines Desktop won't power on but all components do!

There are many places to buy a power supply. And place that sells computer hadware will have them (or online at places like Newegg, Buy, Tiger Direct etc)
They are not that expensive.
Changing it is pretty easy.
4 screws, and the unit will come out.
All the rest is modular plugs to the motherboard, and onboard devices (like hard drive, CD ROM, etc).

Just make sure you buy one that has the correct wattage (you can go higher then what you currently have).
Just make sure it is for the correct style (AT, ATX etc)
