Being eMachines it is probably on board VGA. You can check by looking to see if the VGA lead to the monitor plugs into a VGA card or the motherboard.
Unfortunately it may be caused by static discharge when the RAM was replaced if you didn't observe anti static precautions.
Hope its a VGA board fault but if you install a VGA card and turn off the on board VGA that will work.
Hope that helps.

Not getting any video from a msi 880gma-e55 integrated video motherboard


This may sound simple, but make sure the monitor is set to correct input. Many are auto detect, but you never really know.

You could also check BIOS for onboard video. Disable if you have an add-on video card. Enable if you don't

Reseat the video card if it an add-on.

I put new ram in my emachine 5210 why won't it work


If it was working before you put the ram in, then the ram you put in is the problem. Maybe you put in a ram that is not compatible or is bad.

Put the old ram back in to see if it works.

Go to 4 All Memory to make sure you get the memory that is for your computer.

I made some mods/upgrades for Gateway 835 GM (Started with RAM -2GB Sticks- , Video Cards, & Finally CPU because of the sudden not wanting to display anything on my screen! PLEASE READ & REVIE


Here is what I would do, depending on your board go to what the brand is and download the BIOS again flash it if you do not see the BIOS at the startup. If you do see the BIOS then you will need to install the drivers for these components you replaced. Depending on which operating system you are using. Win XP you will have to load drivers from the driver disks that came with the product replacement or search for one online. If you have Win 7 it should pick the drivers up through Windows Updates load them without them or a running BIOS your shot in the dark. Your computer has to have a BIOS and drivers to run the hardware you replaced. Just because you had them before does not mean it will operate. correctly. Make sure your components are the correct ones for your machine. Just because ram fits does not mean it is the correct ram. So get BIOS up again from there boot from C: reload Windows then re install the whole operating system and be sure to load drivers and updates. That is how I would proceed with this issue. John

Have you tried putting the Graphics card in a Different slot? If you have and it is still not working most-likely it means that your video card has gone bad and needs replacing.

YES. The slots are for different kinds of memory. ONLY use the 2 new cards and insert them into the SAME colour slots. You should NOT mix memory types. Forget the old modules.

try this,
1.) unplug the system

3.) remove the mainboard battery(cmos battery)
4.) press the power button 5 times
5.) replace the battery
6.) replace the rams
7.) boot it up
8.) enter setup
9.) load defaults then save and exit

if that works then try putting back in the graphics cardm you may need to repeat steps 1 - 9 after installing the graphics card. and pls insure the monitor is connected to the graphics card.

I put in some more ram now???


I've had this happen before, the RAM module you just put in is defective. Put the old one back in and see if it works. If so, take the RAM back and get a new one.
