Try a different PCI slot unless it is a specific AGP board or specific video slot on the motherboard, maybe the slots blown.

You can try reseting the video ram incase the drivers have become corrupt, you would need to research how to do that on the net as its different per machine which keys to hold down on restart.

Failing this try a different video card !

Where is the video card located at in the box?

Some machines have the video built into the motherboard.
Best way to tell is look at the Video port on the back of the machine.
(Where the monitor cable plugs in)
If the Video connection point is in within a card slot it is easy to spot what position and where. If the Video connection port is in line with the motherboard. It is built into said motherboard. And yes if you have an available slot open you could upgrade the video should it be built into the motherboard.
Here is a link for slot types

Hope this helps.

Is there and sd card slot anywhere????

I believe SD card readers plug into the usb, the sd card then plugs into the reader to read.
A permanent sd card slot can be installed in the small floppy disc tray and plugged into the mobo.
But the sd usb option is bone cheap.

Why is my monitor black. when I turn on my computer my monitor light lights up green then turns back off to orange. I cant see anything.

Typically, this means that the monitor receives a momentary signal from the video card, then no further any output from the video card. First off, make sure that the system is powered off and unplugged before attempting any maintenance steps. Also, if opening the case, discharge any static electricity by touching the metal chassis of the system before working with any internal components.

1. Unplug the monitor cord from the video card (you'll need to unscrew the posts that hold it in the socket), and if possible, from the monitor (many monitors have built-in cords, so this may not be possible). Plug the cord back in, making sure the connection is snug, and screw the posts down snugly. Plug the system back in, and try to power it on.
2. If the above doesn't resolve the issue, and the card is in a slot as opposed to integrated into the motherboard: Make sure the system is off and unplugged. Open the case, remove and reinstall the video card. There is likely either a screw holding the card in the case, or there may be a plastic retainer that you need to remove. Depending on the socket type, there may also be a plastic retainer on the motherboard, at the inside end of the card, holding it in place. This will need to be pulled back gently, while removing the card. Plug the system back in, and try to power it on.
3. If there are both a video connection on the motherboard, and a video card in a slot, try swapping to the other connection. The one the monitor is not plugged into may be getting turned on by default instead of the other. If the alternate port works, you may need to consult the motherboard manual on how to change the BIOS setting that determines what card is active when the system is powered on.

The monitor will not get a connection. I need to know where the video card is located.

This is eMachines Support, T6420 desktop computer>Specifications, and downloads page for the User Guides,

The eMachines T6420 does not come with a graphics card from the factory.
It comes with Integrated Graphics.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard

The GPU is soldered to the motherboard.
(Graphics Processing Unit,

someone has installed a graphics card, into the PCI Express x16 slot on the motherboard.

You can determine real easily if your computer is using Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card.

If it is using Integrated Graphics, the monitor will be plugged into the I/O area, on the back of the computer, and into a VGA port,

(I/O area;

I/O = Input/Output

The I/O area, is the area that has the rectangular metal shield, and Input/Output devices are plugged into this area.

Devices such as a Keyboard, Mouse, Printer, and so on )

HOWEVER, with the motherboard used in an eMachines T6420, the I/O area could also have a white DVI port.

This was an option offered. The DVI port still connects to the Integrated Graphics on the motherboard.

The eMachines T6420 uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
(Micro Star International, Inc.)

The above link is to,
1) Show the motherboard
2) Provides a link to the Motherboard Manual

Looking at the photo of the motherboard, you will see two long White slots.
Above these two slots you will see a longer White slot.

The bottom two white slots are PCI expansion slots.
The top longer slot is a PCI Express x16, expansion slot.

This is where a PCI Express graphics card would go.

I would like you to scroll to the bottom of the page, to the Product Resources heading.

Under it is a link to the Motherboard Manual, for the MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as K8NGM2-L

Left-click on the blue - MSI K8NGM2 Series Manual.

You will be looking at a blank white page, as the PDF file downloads in the background.
Took 34 seconds with a medium speed DSL connection, for me to download it.

No Signal on the monitor, means the monitor is Not receiving a video signal.

1) Check the monitor cable if it is removable. Use it on another working computer to insure it is good.

2) If the monitor cable proves to be good, the next area to check would be the graphics.

If the computer is using Integrated Graphics, and no one has installed a graphics card, the test would be to install a graphics card, and plug the monitor into it.

Computer off, unplugged from power, Anti-Static precautions are observed before reaching inside the computer, and handling the graphics card.

I don't think the problem is the graphics. Could be wrong, but we'll see.
Let's carry the diagnosis past the graphics for now.

I think the problem could be due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak Voltage power rail.

Enough power to light lights, and spin fans (Perhaps), but not enough to turn the Processor on.
(Fans may be spinning, or may just spin a few times, and stop)

1) ALL the lights use Less than 1 Watt of power
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.

How do I locate the video card in HP Pavillion 15.4 6000

The video card is what your monitor is plugged into. If it's plugged into the motherboard then your video card is built in and can't be removed or replaced which is one of the drawbacks to proprietary systems like HP. You can plug another video card into one of the slots in the motherboard assuming you have the right video card to fit the slot in the motherboard. IE PCIE, PCI, AGP.

I get no video and the monitor is good. Need to

IT doesnt matter. If the Video Card is built into the Motherboard and has failed; you can get NEW Card that can plug into an Expansion Port on *********** board

Make sure your motherboard is compatible with the NEW video card. For example, PCI Express video cards won't work with motherboards designed only for AGP or PCI video cards, and vice versa. has a good selection. Call their Customer Service Tech; they have great prices, sales and knowlegable Customre Service Tech to Check if it is the right Type of Card. Its probably PCI but check anyway.

Simply shut down unplug and open the computer side panel and go to the back of the Machine. If there is a separate Card (it will be obvious as it has a VGA port) Remove it and just install your new card in its place and plug in your Monitor to the new VGA port. If not then just POP OUT A FREE SLOT in the back of your Computer next to the Plug In Port so the VGA port that the monitor plugs into stick out the back and plug in your Monitor.

Close , plug in and INSTALL THE SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH THE VIDEO CARD. Set all settings to DEFAULT or be creative :)

Cheers !

You're board does not use an integrated graphics card.
Monitor does not have video display. There can only be four reasons why.
1. The monitor's video cable is not connected correctly at each end (Video card & Monitor) or cable is bad.
2. The monitor’s power cord is not plugged into a good power source or cable is bad.
3. The monitor may be bad.
4. * The AGP graphics card is either not seated correctly in its AGP slot, (remove/clean copper contacts with alcohol/allow to dry & reseat snuggly), or graphic's card is bad.
Monitor’s power cord can be switched with the PC's power cord.
The video cable & monitor can be swapped by borrowing from a friend.
(Just make sure their stuff is working first).
Never open the PC case without unplugging the power cord first.
