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

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.

Dual monitors t3516


Is it just like this with NO graphics card installed?

http://products.pacificgeek.com/emachines_t3516_celeron_d_3_20ghz_512mb_120gb_cdrw_dvd_xp_1013070674.php

If so, Not happening.

The I/O area is to the left side. (Input/Output area)
In this rectangular area you see;
1) PS/2 mouse port, and PS/2 keyboard port, at the top.
2) Orange port below them.
3) Black port below it.
4) Down below all of the above is the blue VGA port.

If you do not have a graphics card, your monitor is plugged into this blue VGA port.
If so you are using Integrated Graphics. Another term used is OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD.

Do Not try to use a splitter cable, and run two monitors off of this VGA port. Ain't happening.

See the four long slots at the bottom of the computer? The bottom one has the Ethernet adapter card in it?
A graphics card, (Video card. Same/same), is installed on the motherboard, and the end of it sticks out one of those 3 unoccupied slots.

Each of those slots are known as Expansion Bay Slots.
When you choose what slot you want, you remove the Expansion Slot cover, for that slot.

My sources indicate the motherboard is an Intel D101GGC motherboard,

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket775/D101GGC.shtml

There are 2 white PCI slots at the bottom.
There is 1 black PCI-Express x1 slot above them.
There is a longer black PCI-Express x16 slot above it.

The PCI-Express x16 slot is for a graphics card. It is the best graphics card slot on your motherboard.
(The white PCI slots are lame. The PCI-Express x1 slot, is NOT used for a graphics card)

Suggest you use a PCI Express graphics card for your computer, and run two monitors at the same time.

From here it depends on what the two monitors are. Do you have two monitors that use a VGA cable?
Example of a VGA cable, and a VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Or do you have a monitor that uses a VGA cable, and a monitor that uses a DVI cable?
Example of DVI connectors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

Or do you have one monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor that has a DVI cable?

Post in a Comment as to the monitor manufacturer name, and model number.
[ For example I am using an HP 2009m (20 inch widescreen), and a 26 inch RCA EN-V HDTV, as dual monitors ]

This is an example of a very economical PCI Express graphics card, that will run dual monitors,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130755

You can use a monitor with a VGA cable (Blue port), and a monitor with a DVI cable.

You can use two VGA monitors, with using a VGA to DVI adapter, for one of the monitors.
You can use two DVI monitors, with using a DVI to VGA adapter, for one of the monitors.

Already have a graphics card, and two monitors connected to it?

1) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
2) At the bottom of the list left-click on Properties.
3) In the Display Properties window, left-click on the Settings tab.

4) Left-click on the rectangular monitor icon, that has the 2 in it.
5) Go below to the left, and left-click on the empty square next to-
Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor
6) Go below to the right, and left-click on Apply.
7) Go below to the left, and left-click on OK.

Your desktop screen is on your second monitor.

Need guidance past this post in a Comment.

The monitor will not get a connection. I need to know where the video card is located.


This is eMachines Support, T6420 desktop computer>Specifications, and downloads page for the User Guides,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T6420

The eMachines T6420 does not come with a graphics card from the factory.
It comes with Integrated Graphics.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard

The GPU is soldered to the motherboard.
(Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

OR,
someone has installed a graphics card, into the PCI Express x16 slot on the motherboard.

You can determine real easily if your computer is using Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card.

If it is using Integrated Graphics, the monitor will be plugged into the I/O area, on the back of the computer, and into a VGA port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

(I/O area;

I/O = Input/Output

The I/O area, is the area that has the rectangular metal shield, and Input/Output devices are plugged into this area.

Devices such as a Keyboard, Mouse, Printer, and so on )

HOWEVER, with the motherboard used in an eMachines T6420, the I/O area could also have a white DVI port.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

This was an option offered. The DVI port still connects to the Integrated Graphics on the motherboard.

The eMachines T6420 uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
(Micro Star International, Inc.)

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-detailsInactive.asp?EdpNo=2665522

The above link is to,
1) Show the motherboard
2) Provides a link to the Motherboard Manual

Looking at the photo of the motherboard, you will see two long White slots.
Above these two slots you will see a longer White slot.

The bottom two white slots are PCI expansion slots.
The top longer slot is a PCI Express x16, expansion slot.

This is where a PCI Express graphics card would go.

I would like you to scroll to the bottom of the page, to the Product Resources heading.

Under it is a link to the Motherboard Manual, for the MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as K8NGM2-L

Left-click on the blue - MSI K8NGM2 Series Manual.

You will be looking at a blank white page, as the PDF file downloads in the background.
Took 34 seconds with a medium speed DSL connection, for me to download it.

NOW,
No Signal on the monitor, means the monitor is Not receiving a video signal.

1) Check the monitor cable if it is removable. Use it on another working computer to insure it is good.

2) If the monitor cable proves to be good, the next area to check would be the graphics.

If the computer is using Integrated Graphics, and no one has installed a graphics card, the test would be to install a graphics card, and plug the monitor into it.

Computer off, unplugged from power, Anti-Static precautions are observed before reaching inside the computer, and handling the graphics card.

I don't think the problem is the graphics. Could be wrong, but we'll see.
Let's carry the diagnosis past the graphics for now.

I think the problem could be due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak Voltage power rail.

Enough power to light lights, and spin fans (Perhaps), but not enough to turn the Processor on.
(Fans may be spinning, or may just spin a few times, and stop)

1) ALL the lights use Less than 1 Watt of power
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.

Where can I find a manual for a trigem alaska3 motherboard? I need to know if it's AGP or PCIe for a graphics card upgrade.


If u have a separate graphic card it will be on the AGP slot(brown or black in color) and if it is on the PCI slot(white colored), thus set it accordingly, not that it matters too much if you are using single display......sodeep

Monitor screen stays blank


HP desktop computer? Change the monitor cable. The cable from the monitor to the computer, may be bad.
Happens.

If this doesn't solve it then I suggest the GPU is bad. Graphics Processing Unit. If you have Integrated Graphics, (Also referred to as 'On-Board'), then I suggest buying an average, inexpensive graphics card, and installing it.
You'll have to see what expansion slot, your computer uses for graphics. It may be a PCI slot, or an AGP slot, or a PCI Express x16 slot.

Clear as mud on that last one? Let me give you some links, that might help clear up what an Expansion slot is, and the three types of expansion slots used for a graphics card.
1.Expansion slot:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expansion_slot
2.PCI (local bus):http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_(bus)
3.AGP:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP
4.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express
5.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Asus_a8n_VMCSM02.jpg
The link above (No.5) shows a photo of an average motherboard. At the top right you will see two White slots. Those are PCI expansion slots.
Below the PCI slots is a PCI Express x16 slot. It is Black in color.

Initially disk boot failure now White screen but runs in oter mon


Try checking inside the computer for loose wiring near where the power supply box plugs into the motherboard, make sure that you turn the computer off and remove it from the outlet before opening it. While the computer is open, check all of the leads going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. Remove the RAM clean it with a soft paintbrush and then return them to there slots ensuring that they are seated correctly. Do the same with the graphics card and sound card if you have them in PCI slots or AGP slot returning them correctly into thier slots.
Put everything back together and before powering back on make sure that the power leads going into your PC and into your monitor have not been damaged in any way. Reboot your computer and try again. If you still get a shock or your computer does not boot properly then you may need to change the power supply box.

I hope this helps

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.

Graphics Card


helenak,
  • First you should check your connection from your monitor to your computer, generally it will be at the back of CPU (Computer Cabinet).
See the image: 7fe1438.jpg This will be connected to your PC Video out port:351cada.jpg
  • After connecting again try out. If no luck then you shoud buy a PCI VGA card, its easy to installed in your PC, just remove the cover and you will see a slot with white color, try to insert gentlly it will be fixed.
  • Regarding rate there are too many products, you can search at net for your need.

Thanks & Good Luck
