The graphics card might be in properly, or you need to replace card. Try and see what happens. If you have on-board screen adapter try using that and unplug the AGP or PCI one first and see if screen appears. Also if your using a Digital monitor check if the monitor is in Digital or Analog mode, dependnig on how you plugged in.


If all else fails, try taking out the battery on mother board and restarting computer.

sounds like your windows installation took a hit, try booting from the windows cd into the repair console and do a chkdsk /F /R; a fixboot and an fixmbr command. if ths doesn't work, try the repair option. You can also try to boot from a hirens boot disk and try the tools that come with that.

Hi, I had the same inital problem as you, except I didn't put a new video card as I was please with the Onboard card performance that even has an HDMI port. Not sure if your problem is solved already, but in my working process, I first suspected the Power Supply, and I had everything out of the case but the Mother Board. When I tried to fire it up I was always getting "No signal" on the screen, not even a blink from the BIOS. I then put everything back in place, then after the HD started spinning of and Windows booting, the screen started coming on. I felt it was like if I needed Windows to have a clean booth to replace the video drivers and switch to the InBoard card. Hoping this of any help.

Has anything changed since it was working last? check that first
Next -- the Beep codes indicate a hardware problem --the PC was unable to POST(Power On Self Test-)-but DELL's beep codes closest to what you described is either 1-2-video card not detected or 1-3-1-1 which is Memory (RAM) error adn the PHEONIX beep code of 1-3-2 is Memory error also-- so be sure all cards and chips are seated properly--I dont think its the hardrive --a PC can still boot and POST without a hardrive.

I think you really need to boot from a boot disk (windows xp - vista - 7) for your operating system - and attempt a repair from there. Your computers have different motherboards and parts.. windows installed drivers for them are not close enough.

I have had success in xp by doing this: before removing drive from old computer - you go into device manager and remove everything - drives, video card, mother board last and leave keyboard and mouse .. so you can shut it down .. then install into new machine and it finds most everything and then you install your drivers there.

Good luck,
Bill

EMACHINE T6534 COMP. WANT BOOT . TRYING TO CHANGE V-CARDS


This could be a few things though if you have already checked the memory and HD. The next thing I would tell you is that you should check the cpu. Also make sure that everything in the BIOS is set to the default settings when you start it.
