Disable intergerated video card to allow for pci card to function
You need to access the BIOS to disable the on-board video. Do you have Windows 7 installed or have you upgraded to Windows 8?
For Windows 7, turn off the computer and then turn it back on. After pressing your on switch press Delete repeatedly to access the BIOS. (Some computers use Tab or another key, you should see a screen indicating the correct key.) If Windows starts to load, try again. (I usually have to try 3-4 times to press the key at the correct time following the POST.)
For Windows 8, the boot sequence can be too fast to hit the key. Use the Advanced Restart option. Access the Charms menu and choose Settings > General > Advanced Startup. Alternatively, Charms > Settings > Power > press Shift and then select Restart. This should give you a Boot options menu and you'll be able to access the BIOS from that.
On my machine, I need the Advanced BIOS and then the System Agent Configuration. Then I select Initiate Graphics Adapter. Your BIOS may be slightly different. Go through your VGA graphics for disabling the on-board graphics and enabling the correct PCI/PCI-e graphics option.
I hope this helps.
(make sure that your power supply will support the graphics card.)

I turn my emachines EL1200-07w and it has black screen that says starting in safe mode but then just goes black and does nothing else.
hello and good morning.
emachines are old and now owned by acer.com (gateway,etc)
they OWN many old names.
you are running XP right? the last man on earth to do so?
XP is a virus magnet and doomed, it is time to upgrade.
this PC is 2007 made. so is 12 years old, today..
the RTC coin cell battery will be no good now, replace it for $2
then reset BIOS inside BIOS screen " set default"
then test the HDD, to be sure it is ok, if not? then reloading any OS of any kinds is not going to work with any bad HDD.
Last, reload a new OS.
there are the steps. and can be expensive, spent on any PC this old with zero street value. ($0 if broken a it is)
