Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Graphics card clarification.


A month or so ago you assisted me with a previous question I had. The thread is at the bottom of this message. I thought my problem was solved but I have one lasting question. I do not know what kind of slots my Computer actually has. I am not sure if it has the PCI-Express slot needed by High-end graphics cards. My computer works at a speed of 2.8 GHz, and it is a stock T3830, minus added RAM and CD-Drives.

If you could tell me what slots are in this machine, that would be fantastic. I have no idea how to find out myself!

Thanks, Ikou14

This pic will explain the various types of slots. You will have to access your motherboard first, of course :)

My card is the r6970-2pm2d2gd5, When plugged into the motherboard (MSI 870a - g54) and powered on, no video displays on the screen. When a separate card was tested, video worked perfectly normal. Also, the...

Hi there,
1. Just clarifying things what does this mean ""When a separate card was tested"" does you HD6970 on crossfire?. or just a single card and the separate card means spare card. Am I right?

2. From your statement ""the fan began to rotate at an incredible speed"" does the 2x 8pin power connector plugged? reference images below.


6/8 Pin power connector


3. The main reason fans speed up and no display, you did not plugged the 2x 8 Pin power. if your Power Supply do not have such cables you better purchase one having 2-4 PCIE 6/8 Pin if you have plans on doing a crossfire setup.

Hopefully this information helps.
Just leave a message for clarification.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have seen this problem before, its likely that your computer is going into power save mode to protect your graphics card from overheating.

If this is the case you need to replace the fan on the graphics card plain and simple. Ebay and a quick search on yahoo will allow you to find a replacement in no time. It should be pretty straight forward as far as switching them out.

Post back if you have any further questions or comments and Id be glad to assist you further.

9400Gt won't work anymore

Hello tainted feat,

Please download DriverSweeper:
Reboot into SafeMode and select the Nvidia drivers and PhysX. Select only those. Do not delete the chipset drivers. Reboot into normal mode and then go here to download drivers.

This should work. Good luck

A line appears across my screen on my medion laptop

Perhaps your monitor is faulty. You should check it out at a repair store. Also, if you have a VGA connector for an external monitor, try with that. If the lines are gone, that means your monitor is faulty.
