Question about Graphics Cards

1 Answer

No video output

I am putting together a new computer...nothing fancy. When everything is assembled (whether in or out of the case) I get no video display at all. The fans spin up, the leds on the motherboard power on, and the leds in the RAM come on.

It is:
ASUS M3A motherboard
AMD 5400+ processor
2 GB Crucial DDR2 PC6400
ASUS EAH3650 512MB Radeon PCI Express 2.0 x16 video card
WD 500GB hard drive

    Since it didn't work as advertised, I followed ASUS technical instructions and moved it from the chassis to a smooth non-conductive desktop. I setup the basic computer there (without a speaker) and got the same results.



    I talked to an ASUS representative this morning and he told me either the motherboard or processor is defective. I have requested an RMA from newegg.com.



    Thanks for your help.

Do you get a single beep from the POST at start-up? That signifies that the internal check is OK.

USB PORT IS SHOWING RED AND KEEPS BLINKING . THE VIDEO PORTS ARE BLUE


This probably means there is a connection problem to your USB device you are connecting to the output. I would first try another cable, and if that still doesn't work then I would open the case (if not under warranty) and look around the USB connector on the board. Look for any cold joints in the solder and I would actually resolder those pins to the board. You can remove solder with desoldering braid (Radio Shack) and then apply new solder with lead-free rosin core electrical solder.

My video shuts down during boot, then a few minutes later the pc shuts down. It does this in all modes of boot. I have tried installing win xp again, it does this during the install. It also does this with...


Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)

Be careful about how much you put on

Here are
some basic instructions

Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

I have assemble a new PC with VGA Card (PCI-E) but doesn't work


Yes , you need the extra power adaptor to your video card.
I would contact the seller or go to your local computer store taking the video card to make sure you get the correct adaptor.

How do I replace the video card on my emachine T6528


To replace the video card:

  1. Make sure everything is unplugged and computer is on a table. (Static is a bad thing)
  2. Remove the left side panel (should be 3 screws on the back)
  3. Panel usually slides back then pops off.
  4. Video card should be about halfway down.
  5. With the computer on it's side, remove the screw holding the old video card in.
  6. Pull the old card out. (might be a tab at the base of card)
  7. Put new card in. (Careful not to push too hard)
  8. Make sure all screws are put back in there proper place.
  9. Reconnect all cables. (Power cable should be last)
  10. Boot up the computer and install the drivers for the new card.
Now where's my $150???? LOL Kind of ridiculous what they charge for simple tasks. I'm not sure, but I think this voids the warranty on emachines?

Installing RAM and a new graphics card..


Heres what ya do to replace it yourself:

1. Unplug everything
2. Remove and jewwrely, watches, etc..
3. Set computer on a level table
4. Before opening the case, touch metal on the case for 15 seconds.
5. remove the screws, Take out old videocard and be carefull to lift up on the latch if it has one.
6. Take out old RAM by removing each latch on both sides of the RAM.
7. Store videocard & RAM in an antistatic bag if you have one. A cardboard box works too.
8. put in new videocard vertically where old one was and place back screws.
9. Put in the RAM. (May go in hard) Put in the RAM vertically and make sure the latches are secure.
10. Put back on case cover.
11. Turn on computer after plugging everything back in.
12. Done and hopefully it works.

It will cost about $20 - $50 for best buy to do this and will take about 30mins either way.

Having someone at best buy do it is a better choice if you have never done it before but its your call.
