PCI socket on 4 yr old emachine

I'm trying to find out what graphics card will work on my emachine D2685. The sockets have a long bank, gap, short bank, working from the external side in. I've looked at GeForce cards the they have a short bank, long, then short. What kind of card should I be looking for?

Here are the specs to your machine:
http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=D-Series&model=D2685
click the specs tab. It seems you have only PCI slots in thos machine, so you cannot use an AGP card (the other type you may have seen). Video cards are clearly marked PCI or AGP.
Does this machine not have a built in video port already? Or do you just want to upgrade?

How to connect external power to graphic card


Your Graphics card should have 2-6 Pin Power connections located on the Top Rear of the card. You would need to use an 8 pin to Dual 6-pin adapter cable for the Graphics Card.

Radeon 4770 beeping error


Always check Power and connectors first. Are they properly fitted and is there power? Your seems to be working correctly, so there must be a problem with your computer. Remove the graphics card and check the graphics output by plugging the monitor in to the motherboard graphics socket.

Switch on computer and message on monitor says no signal input. think it might be the graphics card but can't test because not compatible with old computer mother board


This is more likely to be a problem with the connection between the graphics card & the monitor. The connection might be loose at one of the ends. Another possibility is that the cable connecting the graphics card & the monitor is damaged & needs to be replaced. Also, it might be because of a damaged VGA socket. Check the VGA socket for broken or bent pins.

HELP FINDING A CARD TO FIT MY PCI SLOT


It is easy to get the PCI & PCIE stuff mixed up. PCI slots are all white doesn't matter who makes the board. PCIE however is all together different from a PCI slot. The PCIE slot sits fauther away from the back of the computer & so does a AGP. PCIE is a very long card. A PCI is not. The short slot you saw is also a PCIE slots. Not for video but more likely for network card. Most people never use them. Most likely the long slot above the short slot is a PCIE. So you want a card that is like what I'm going to list in this link.
