Need to disable internal video that isn't working

My mother in law's emachines t6216 has an internal video card that is not working and I need to disable it in order to let the new pcie video card to work. Unfortunately, without a monitor view, I can't make any changes. There don't appear to be any switches on the motherboard. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll have to check the memory. Popping the new card in and hooking everything up didn't work. I also upgraded the power supply as I was told that when new, it was borderline for the video card that I purchased. Still didn't work. The guy from emachines said that I should be able to view the bios settings, but it didn't come up with the monitor plugged into either video card. I'm glad that I can return the video card and power supply.

With internal video cards they normally automatically switch to PCI video cards that you put in without the need for switches or settings on the board. Just plug in the card and plug in the monitor on the card and you should be good. now if your board is one of the select few that require a change in the BIOS then you are out of luck. BUT, take note that 90% of the time that internal video cards do not work because of the memory. Take note that the memory that the internal video cards use is the memory on the board so you might want to check if your memory is working.

How to disable an onboard video card and install another video card


There should be a jumper on the motherboard OR a setting in the motherboard bios. Try looking through the bios menus first... If there isn't a way to disable, get the model of the main board and look at the jumper diagrams online.

Even if those things power up doesn't mean your PSU is still good.
In particular the PSU in eMachines are known to be cheap/bad and one of the first things to go out.

If you have access to one try another ATX power supply.
You don't have to remove the old one just to test.

1) Unplug the existing PSU power cable from the back.
2) Remove all it's connections (MB, drives, etc).
3) Plug the other PSU in with just the two MB connections (the main, and 12v one), skipping any drives for now.
It's probably ok if the test one is not touching, but I like to put the PC on the side with the test PSU setting on top where the original one is making sure it has good contact with the case to make sure it's grounded.
4) Now plug the AC into the test PSU and power it up.

If it still dosn't power up it's probably MB, or CPU.
You could also unplug it again (you always want to unplug the PSU when doing anything, the power is always on), and try removing any add on cards (like your wireless card), and try again.

If it does power up (you get a POST screen), unplug PSU again, now plug-in drives, then AC back and see if it will boot up.

Emachine T6216 onboard video is shot (nothing on known good monitor) Have installed new PCI-Ex16 graphics care. Need to disable onboard video. Is there a jumper on motherboard?


Have you tried entering BIOS? I beliveve that you have to press and hold F1 during boot to enter BIOS. Once in there you should be able to disable onboard video card.

E-Machine T6216 PSU fan runs, computer will not boot


It is the power supply. EMachines have a long history of using cheap power supplies. I have replaced over a dozen EMachine power supplies with a 100% success rate. They are easy to replace and can be had for less than $20. Just write down the model number and take that to a computer parts store or remove the power supply and take that with you. Steve
