check it youself..
check if there is a VGA (Blue color 9 pin) connector on the back side of your motherboad, then it has a builtin VGA,
you dont have to purchase a new one. if that installed one is less capacity then u can buy a new one and then u have to disable the existing one through CMOS setup.
the setup at the starting of the PC

Need more power from video card for gaming

The HD3200 on-board (integrated on the motherboard) graphics on this older machine will not support many games. You need to add a separate graphics card to this unit and disable the on-board graphics. Decide on how much you can afford for a new card and check out VGA charts to see the best performing video card in your price range. You might also consider a newer machine as this is probably about 5 years old. Whatever machine you get, make sure you do not depend on on-board graphics if you want to do gaming.

Graphic card location inside an E520

The Dell 520's manual can be downloaded here. The PC's motherboard optionally has a VGA Video Connector (integrated) as shown on Page 1 of the manual. If yours is equipped with this option, there is no graphics card installed - it is built into the motherboard itself. It can not be removed or separated from the PC.

Your PC may have a a separate video card installed into one of the expansion slots on the motherboard. Page 1 also shows this installed below the USB 2.0 connectors as the PCI Express graphics card.

Here's an internal view:

The video card in the picture is driving two standard analog VGA monitors (blue cable connectors) through a DVI -> VGA adapter (white and clear devices) this is connected to the video output connectors. If you look closely at the edge of the PC in the picture (directly above the USB & network cables) you should be able to see an unused VGA Video Connector (integrated). Most computer BIOS systems will automatically disable any built in video capabilities of the motherboard when a separate video card is detected. Check the manual for additional info about these BIOS settings.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Is there always a free slot for a video card on motherboards that have integrated video cards

Most motherboards have expansion slots, you need to identify the type of expansion slots that are installed eg. PCI. AGP etc.
If your motherboard has an AGP slot (this slot is for graphics card) then purchase an AGP graphics card.
You may need to disable the on-board graphics card in the BIOS setup.

I have a dell dimension 3000. I want to add a 2nd monitor. I believe the video is integrated, Does the unit have a slot to add a video card. What kind of card should be added?

The Dimension 3000 Springdale G chipset supports AGP 8X cards, integrated video, integrated audio, ICH5, 533/800 MHz FSB, dual channel DDR 333/400 memory, integrated Serial ATA, and the Intel Pentium 4 Prescott.
The AGP 8X slot refers to Advanced Graphics Port. You can add a AGP video card if you motherboard has that slot. Usually that slot is encased by a green plastic enclosure .

Is the video-card a separate add-in card, or is it integrated into the motherboard?

If separate, what manufacturer and model-number of video-card?

If integrated, what manufacturer and model-number of motherboard?

What Operating System?

Have you tried: and doing a "custom" search,
and then clicking "Optional hardware updates", to see if Microsoft offers a driver?

How do I replace a video card on the emachines T6420

The video on your computer is integrated into the motherboard, so there isn't a video card as such to replace. The motherboard has an available slot (PCI Express, also called PCI-E x16) so that you can install a separate video card, either to fix problems with the built-in video or as an upgrade.

Installing a new video card is just a matter of inserting it into the slot. When you turn the computer on after installation, the new card will be operating. Install the driver software which will be included on a CD so that Windows can work properly with the new card and you will be all set.

Many vendors sell PCI-E video cards in a wide range of features and prices. You may be able to find some locally if you are near a retailer like Best Buy, and online shopping is always available. TigerDirect and Newegg are two companies I frequently buy parts from.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

I'm looking for a mother board or whatever the thing is called in the back of the computer where the screen plugs in. It's been ripped off and i need a new one where can i buy one?

I believe you are talking about the video graphics card that is integrated into the motherboard. There is no way to replace an integrated motherboard without replacing the entire motherboard, which can be expensive.

An alternative solution is to purchase a PCI video graphics card at your local electronics store. The price varies fro $20.00 (basic) to $250.00 (gamers). The basic will get you back up and running.

They are simple to install, just make sure that the computer is off and unplugged. Open the side of the case to the computer and slip the graphics card into an available slot, near the bottom. The instructions with pictures comes with the graphics card.

I have a Gateway GT5056, no monitor will work.

The video card you have is integrated into the motherboard. You would have to buy a whole new motherboard to fix the problem. It would almost be cheaper to buy a new computer though.

PC has died !! I've disconnected all the HDDs, ROM, RAM, Video Cards and still dead. Power light comes on, CPU fan starts up, NO LIGHTS anywhere on the motherboard, two short beeps, followed by third beep....

based on your information the two beeps is an indication that you motherboard is alive and looking for a memory. is the video integrated or you use a separate video card? i think this has something to do with your video. if your video is integrated try putting in a video card
