PCI video slot changed to AGP video slot

I have an old T205 machine that is in need of a video driver.I can't see anything at all when the unit is turned on but would like to replace the video card with a new one.It has a agp slot and I would very much like to use it but can't see anything.. With out being able to see what is going on can you instruct me,or provide me with the correct keystrokes to get into the bios and change the settings from the pci slot for video to using the agp slot and have it to work when its done?

First, install the AGP card in the AGP slot. Plug the monitor into the new video card.
Second, power up and press the F2 key to enter Bios.
The system should default to VGA but through the new and only video card available. If this works you will be able to save the settings and exit. It will reboot as normal. When prompted use the cd for that card to load the drivers.
AGP was a short lived concept and aren't that many to chose from.
If you don't get any video at all, the problem may lie in the motherboard and not really repairable.
Good luck.

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 have an emachine t2984 with a factory video card. I want to upgrade my video card but read that there are no expansion slots (PCI-e) to do this. Does this mean i need to buy a new computer to play video...


A video card can use AGP, PCI, and PCI-E slots. If it is a older model it should have either AGP or PCI ( Mainly AGP ). Many video cards are still available for these slots.
If you want to play the top games of these day though, most of the time these slots will not work games like this. They COULD work, but the best cards of today is PCI-E. Good luck and do not forget to rate :)

there is a possibilty that the pci slot isnt working on your motherboard. try a different pci slot with the new video card.If all are occupied then swap one to test. if your using agp, well you only have one agp slot so go to pci. just use generic first dont get anything expensive when your testing.

AGP slot has a problem. is there a diagnostic program for this


Some motherboards have an area in the Setup (BIOS) where you can select AGP/PCI/Onboard
go into your setup and see how the option is set.

Verify that the PSU is supplying sufficient amount of power required.

Check that DirectX, video and chipset drivers used, are compatible/current...
other than that see if one of your friends has one to lend to you and test it with that...
hope this helped please leave a rating...thank you...

Video Card


Okay this model is rather hard to find the specs for lol. I need to know what type of slots you have on the inside. You should have some PCI slots which look like this. I need to know if next to them you have an AGP slot which looks like this. (Note, the AGP is usually brown and above the PCI slots).

Based on this information, then you can purchase either a PCI video card or an AGP video card which will work in your system.

PCI Video

AGP Video.

Thanks and please rate as fixya.

Usually "on board graphic card" reffers to an internal video graphics circuit intergrated into the motherboard. If your monitor's video cable plugs into a separate card, then you can replace the card. If there is no video card, then only option is to replace motherboard. Might be cheaper to buy new computer.

Adding anothe rmonitor


You probably are not going to do it with the E-Machine at all.
E-machines like Dell and a few others are specially designed integrated units which will do the job they are designed to do but have little or no 'upgradability'
Spending money on new components is inevitably a lost cause.
Save your pennies and buy a new general purpose machine.
