PC Chips M789cg

Hi i have a the above mother board installed in my PC will do perfectly well for what i need, with the exception of the in built graphics adaptor which is poor.......There appears to be no "larger" slot (Its beeen a long time since i opened the cover of a PC ) for a graphics card to be installed in .

Are graphics cards able to be used with this board ?

If so what one would be compatible ( minimum fuss )

If not, is there a driver that can be installed for the whole board and graphics....bearing in mind my bios is working perfectly well ( ithink)


Thank for any help you may be able to offer

Regards

The manufacturer ( PCChips ) has all downloads including manuals that might be needed to identify your possibilities on that motherboard.
PCChips motherboards are on the low end of the spectrum when it comes to value but they do the job just as you indicated. I've have used several of them over the years. I see that it has an onboard CPU.
I don't see a picture of the motherboard so I can't say one way or the other if you can add a video card to the system, but I will say this. If you can't add a video card through an AGP slot ( best choice ) or through a PCI slot ( second choice ), I would be surprised.
Sorry I couldn't say more but without hands on, it would be difficult to add truthful information.

Emachine will not power up


By nothing else, from a technical standpoint this would mean literally nothing, the CPU fan, power supply fan, aux fan, disk drive not spinning up, etc. My experience with EMachines is their motherboards aint the best, have been known to take out hard drives and other peripherals to the mother board. If you are technically inclined the first thing to do is to bare out the system, Power Supply attached to the Mother Board w/ Cpu Monitor and Keyboard no Hard Drive and no Non esential boards installed, very carefully remove the memory and start it up all should be fine except it should give you a long beep from the PC Speaker indicating the Mother Board is aware there is no memory installed if it will not do this most basic of tests this is not good. If it does give you a health beep continue to install one item at a time, first the memory, the display should, if working, tell you there is a boot failure, of course, the hard drive is not connected, do so and keep on testing. Without knowing what type of mother board you have, most likely an AT with integrated peripherials the process to determine exactly what the problem is would take hands on trouble shooting. If you dont get the beep indicating the mother board cant determine if memory is installed and truley nothing else is on it is more likely the mother board. There are several good ones online that will fit your case if you want to go this route. Or is it time to upgrade ?

Dell Dimension 8300 wouldn't start


Sounds like a power supply. You are getting the standby voltage and not the switched. plug all your wires in except the big 20 or 24 pin motherboard connector, take a small wire and short the green (PSU_ON) to black (ground) wires. This will simulate the computers "ON" signal. The fans should all spin up and your plugged in accessories should work, which means bad motherboard, if not bad power supply.

I Have a gateway M1621 that I plug in a different power adaptor (output 48v). My laptop suposed to recieved 19v. What do I need to chage?


Hi jyasa,

More likely the mother board - because about all the modern laptop built today are integratedly built into a single board, where the power port is also integrated.

Hope this helps and good luck.
