emachines T6216 - adding a video card

Q: emachines T6216 - adding a video card

I have an emachines T6216 which has built in nvidia geforce 6100. I would like to install nvidia geforce gt 610 card which has onboard memory. How do I disable the built in graphics? The settings in BIOS do not appear to disable built in no matter how I configure. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated. This is a dual boot system with Windows XP and Ubuntu 12.04.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: emachines T6216 - adding a video card

inserting a card generally disables the onboard

your psu will need to be up here to run the card

boot from the onboard
in the device manager disable the onboard
if the card is listed uninstall it
turn the computer off
install the card
change the video cable from the onboard to the card
reboot into the bios
check to see if you can disable the onboard in there and set it to detect agp or pcie first
save and exit the bios tapping f8 and choose vga mode
when windows finishes booting
disable a/virus
install your drivers for the card
reboot the computer

Hi all,
I tried to upgrade my t6216 (3200+, MSI K8NGM2-L to an opteron 165-it should work see (www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_cpu_support_detail.php?UID=702&kind=1). My PSU is an ATX coolermaster rated at 29amps on the dual 12v rails and 430 watts with a BFG7950GT card and just the one internal hardrive. The opteron did not even POST though. I had my bios updated by emachines in July 2006. Emachines won't answer any questions about the bios and its been greyed out all over the place, I suspect this is the problem? Any ideas on how to get this processor working? I have a technician to help me. Otherwise I will just get a new motherboard and case as i cant see any microATX boards that are worthwhile buying if i get a new board. I will be using the opteron for statistical modelling using large datasets in R "not overclocking" although a little bit wouldnt hurt with a good board.

I accidentally removed three cables and need help replugging back into T6216 motherboard.

The three cables (two wires each) are identified as HDD LED, POWER LED, and POWER SW.

The connect pins on the motherboard are color coded.

Can someone identify the correct color code for these three plugs.

Thanks in advance.

My son uses an eMachines T5088 desktop PC. Of course it's a budget PC at best. I believe the power supply is 300 watts. It's currently using the onboard intel graphics. We were hoping to set up dual monitors for a new job he can do from home. There is a PCI-E x16 expansion slot I can use for a video card. I have a couple of issues I thought you guys might have some insight on. Are there Dual monitor capable video cards that this PC can power adequately. If they exist, are they very expensive. I assume the card just needs to have 2 different outputs that are compatible with the 2 monitors(digital and analogue). I also assume that two monitors fed from one PC can only display only one image, as opposed to two different images since there's only one video source.

At my sons place of work they're actually using a USB to monitor adapter to send a video signal to the second monitor. I saw one for $42. I guess that's just a shortcut for not installing the appropriate video card.

Sorry for all the questions but I obviously know nothing about setting up dual monitors properly. I don't want to buy a video card if it's not going to work out. Thanks

A:Video card upgrade for Emachines T3152

The key question on upgrading the video card is how powerful is the PSU. Please provide the make and model number of it and the total wattage and how many volts on the 12v leg. If you are not sure how to do this or what I am asking for, take a look at this page - about half way down.

http://www.upgradevideocards.com/criteria.html

The rest of the page - and webiste - also provide good info about upgrading a video card so you might want to browse it too. But don't expect to be able to put too strong a video card in it. You might find some helpful information on low power requirement video cards on this page of the above site:

http://www.upgradevideocards.com/nongaming.html

Although it is targeted at general purpose and HTPC systems, some of the faster cards on that page do allow some basic gaming.

My onboard video is not up to snuff - it may or may not be the IGP video on the motherboard, but I would like to put a VIdeo card in and see how things look with a new video card to replace the onboard video.

Can anyone tell me what video card would be good (doesn't have to be high end), and also, what wattage power supply should I get and is there a vendor who has both? Perhaps on ebay, a recommended eMachines upgrade or something?

Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for stuff on ebay. I guess it might be hard to find a PCI video card for such an old machine.

I realize that I will have to go into the Control Panel under Devices and disable the onboard chip before rebooting with the new card installed.

I guess I could use a PCI Express Graphics card or something like that?

The specs I saw on that machine read 3 PCI and 1 AGP so you should be set.

Please help, got my new video card in a box on a shelf doing nothing.
 

A:Problems with new video card in emachines T6520

Usually it's a sign of the drivers not installed, but you said that you did this already.

I haven't checked if that card suits your computer, ie multiplier (8X ?)
Other than that DOA Video card

No they both are 16X PCI-E, actually the video card should automatically select

So I say faulty card (or PCI-E slot) or mounting (you need to press hard (but not too hard!)

Hello all. Perhaps you can help me.

A while ago, a few friends of mine got new computers, and gave me their old ones. So I've cobbled together a fairly decent little computer using an eMachines T1220 (Celeron @ 1.6GHz or so) as a base. My only issue with it was that it was seriously lacking in the video department, so I jumped on Tiger Direct earlier this week and got a Diablotek ATi Radeon 9000 PCI 64MB video card. It came last night, so I tore into the computer and popped it in.

At first, things went as I thought they should. Windows (2000) screamed for new drivers, I told it to keep its pants on, then ran the driver install from the accompanying CD. Install finished fine, then I clicked the reboot button, and... darkness. It's been doing the same thing since then - I start it up, the thing beeps a morse code "d" at me (-..), and nothing shows up, regardless of whether I plug the monitor into the video card or the onboard video port.

To get anything to show up, I have to take the new card out, so when I go to the bios to disable the onboard video, it doesn't give me the option to do so. Same story no matter which of the 3 PCI slots I put the thing in. The power supply is 250W, though I'm not sure if that even matters, since I don't need to plug any extra power into the card.

I know I can do much better than an eMachine, but I'm not looking to have a beast of a gaming PC - I just want something I can do some homework (digit... Read more

I switched back to the old card, and still no graphics. I had to keyboard control my way through and went into properties to enable the card, still nothing. I unplugged the card. I popped the system battery out for a little bit for the motherboard to reset and system came back to normal I think. Can anyone help me replace the card? Thanks in advance!

i would first check the BIOS menu of your motherboard to see if the onboard video can be turned off there. If so, then you're all set.

I'm trying to add a ATI Rage Pro Turbo PCI video card and I am probably doing things in the wrong order and i am nervous i'll end up without any display. I have on-board graphics on my motherboard (Gigabyte K8VM800MAE) and in the manual it says that on-board graphics is automatically disabled when you add a graphics card. So in Device Manager I uninstalled the on-board graphics, shut down, and installed the ATI card in PCI 1. I connected my monitor to the new card and restarted. Monitor says no signal. I hooked the monitor back to the old output and i have display but with lower resolution than I had before (i was able to change back to proper resolution) . I went back to Device Manager and the on-board graphics was still there and the new ATI card was recognized too. In Properties it says: Device cannot start (Code 10).

What am I doing wrong?

I am upgrading a Dell. I just successfully installed an additional 128MB Ram. However the problem is with the Video Card. It already has onboard video with a pathetic 8MB of Video Ram. I got a nvidia e-TNT 2 M64 PCI video card and installed it. The neat little installer program first removed all the old drivers, then installed the new ones. Everything was going good untill I realized that I couldn't get a signal through the new PCI card until I reinstalled the drivers on the onboard display adapter and set up the TNT card as a SECONDARY monitor. But that's not what I want to do.

-->I want to stop using the onboard adapter (with 8MB) and use the new TNT card (with 32MB) as my primary (and ONLY) display.

I can go into Display Properties, enable monitor 2 (the TNT), move the position of the two monitors around, but I can't disable monitor 1 (the onboard) and I can't set 2 as the primary. The option to set 2 as primary is greyed out and the option to unset 1 from being primary is also greyed out. The only option I have is A: use the onboard only or B: use both moniters and stretch the display across both. If I try to uncheck the "display screen across both monitors, it disables monitor 2.

btw, when this Dell boots up, all that is displayed is the Dell splash screen with no options, it doesn't display the POST, it goes directly from the Dell logo to the Windows 98 logo.

My budget's awful right now, so all I can think of is getting one of those cheap x8 AGP Radeons and a 256 CL2 133MHz RAM chip until I can get a whole new system. The RAM and card should be under or around $100. ... Read more

After I added 2x4GB DDR2 800 mhz ram to my PC and this beastly video card (Nvidia GTX 960 4GB), i started getting BSOD with messages IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, an attempt was made to write to read only memory BSOD and probably others.
I found that 1 of the ram's was corrupted, so I replaced both of the ones i had with 2 others, which were tested in memtest and by windows - all fine. So Ram is not the case anymore. I'm guessing either my PSU cannot feed the GPU (I'm said I have a 450 W PSU, but I believe it to be 500, still not sure), mainly because 1 of the fans for the PSU is broken since like 3 years, and I think the new GPU is making the PSU overheat too much. Other cause would be the hard drive, but I ran window's disk error checking thingy, with a tick on to fix bad sectors - still experiencing issues.
Please give me an insight on what the problem might be - overheating issue (PSU related) or Wattage issue (again PSU related) or something entirely different?

I'm getting the BSOD only when playing video games. Normal PC activity does not cause BSOD.

Thank you!

Hi SpiritBob,

What memtest did you use?

Please upload the chkdsk logs Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

Please run the DM Log Collector again and upload a new zip, the current uploaded one misses several logs.
You could check if there are 18 .txt,
1 .nfo,
1 or more .dmp,
files present, if this is the case then all logs are present
If there are a few missing, no problem as we can get them manually if required

Hi: The only way you can upgrade the graphics would be to replace the entire motherboard with one listed in the service manual that has the amd/Intel switchable graphics. That would be a very costly and labor intensive project.

Looking for some help. I recently purchased an HP Pavilion 500-314.  Specs are as follows: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04293928 The unit includes integrated Radeon R7 graphics, and comes with a 300w power supply I purchased this unit in large part because it explicitly states that "Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards".  I run a quad-monitor setup for my work, and have traditionally done this using an ATI Firepro 2450 card. I have now tried three different external graphics cards, and can get none of them to work: First attempt was with a VisionTec Radeon HD 5570 (item #900345).  This card supports quad monitor setup, and requires a minimum 250w power supply.  When I installed the card, the HP Pavilion repeatedly beeped a series of 4 or 5 (can't remember which) beeps, but refused to send an image to any video output (either onboard or the new card). Next attempt was with an EVGA GeForce GT 610.  This is a dual monitor setup, and requires a minimum 300w power supply.  Got the same exact response as with the VisionTec (i.e. series of beeps...computer would not fire any monitors up). So with both of these (new) cards, I basically gave up immediately as I couldn't even get into BIOS (b/c no monitors would work) to see what was going on.  My understanding is that the series of 4-5 beeps usually means that there is a graphics card issue, or that the card that has been added doesn't have sufficie...

A:HP Pavilion 500-314: big problems adding external video card

Big_Dave, Thanks so much for your quick reply. The first time I spoke with HP Support, they had me disable secure boot.  Unfortunately my problems persisted (i.e. the cards wouldn't install properly).  However, after reading the link you provided I was inspired to try things one last time with a fresh start.  I uninstalled all drivers, removed all cards, re-engaged secure boot, rebooted, shut down, disabled secure boot, reinstalled the cards, and rebooted.  Lo and behold, this time the system accepted the GeForce GT 610 card. Hard for me to express how thankful I am to you.  I've spent two weeks and countless hours trying to get this fixed.  Just wish that I'd found these forums sooner. WallMonkey02

Start by updating your system specifications so we would have a better understanding
of the hardware involved.
System Info - See Your System Specs
What I can pick from the .zip file you uploaded is as such:

Code:
VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116)
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa800e2991c0, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).

Arg4: 0000000000000004, Optional internal context dependent data.
This bugcheck is usually associated with driver failure but can be attributed to hardware under the right circumstances.
DXDIAG reports HD graphics as your GPU, which is another reason to why I asked you
to fill-out your system specifications.

I have an e-machines T3104 with onboard video. Bought an nVidia FX5200 AGP card with 256M memory. I cant get it to work. E-machines said to install the driver first: no go - it said no hardware compatible with the driver. I popped in the card and tried to reboot -- nothing. Monitor just black. So doesnt matter which I try to install first, Im screwed. Seems E-machines have something of a reputation regarding this issue.

Help?

A:Emachines not recognizing AGP Video

Try this:

-Take out the new card and then boot into safe mode
-In your device manager, find the onboard graphics and delete the drivers for it.
-Shut off computer, and install 5200. Plug the monitor cable into the 5200.
-Boot up into your bios and look for the settings to change from onboard to AGP. All bios are different so I can't tell you exactly what to look for, but something like "init boot display" is common.
-Save changes and boot into windows. You system should recognize new hardware and ask you for the drivers. Install the drivers for the 5200.

Hello everyone...hope somebody can recommend a solution:

Not too long ago I added a 3D video card to my E-Machine (T-2482). Installed the driver, card, went into the BIOS and disabled the emachines integrated video card. It worked, I played my games...everything was hunky dory.

After recently moving, I reconnected my computer only to find that I'm not getting a video signal from the emachines to the monitor. Nothing. Blank. I got another (working) monitor to make sure the problem wasn't my monitor (it wasn't).

My next theory is that somehow the 3D video card went bad. I've removed the 3d card and I'm trying to re-enable the integrated video card but I can't enable it because I'm not getting any kind of display. The computer boots like normal but there's nothing on the screen.

Does anyone know a way to get bios to REVERT back to the integrated video card (keeping in mind that I can't see a darned thing on the screen)? I would try a reboot but it's not an auto-cd...I have to explore the cd and click on a program which I can't do because I have no display!

HELP!!!!!!!! (and thanks!)

A:Emachines Video Help - In The Dark!

You could try clearing the cmos by using a jumper(if you have one), or removing the battery for a minute or so. If the integrated is "default", it will set the display back to the integrated, good luck.

Does your graphics card have 2 monitor ports, most do. If you do, try the other port if you can.

You might not need to update the bios. Some newer motherboards can automatically disable the onboard if they detect an add in video card. Try it and see if it works.

Hello all willing to help me out.
Recently, my computer's power supply died out and took the motherboard with it. Unfortunately I didn't see the warning posted here in time.
I replaced the power supply and found a cheap replacement motherboard kit type of thing on ebay that was compatible with my model. I plugged everything in and tried to boot it up, but when I press the power button I get nothing on the monitor. I hear the machine boot up like it normally would including the fans but yet nothing is on the monitor. The monitor just stays on the self test screen and shows nothing else.
I'll answer any questions I can about the system specs, motherboard, or anything.
Any ideas on what the problem could be?
 

A:eMachines T2596 no video display

Hi

You have a fail to POST issue, likely causes are faulty/incorrect memory, CPU gone bad, Faulty IDE device or bad cable, Add on card shorting out or incompatible, or Board shorting out to earth through a badly placed locating peg, or worse case is the new motherboard is faulty, usually though if its a faulty part you should get beeps from the onboard speaker (assuming its fitted) these can be used to indicate what is faulty.


To start though I would remove all items from the board so you have just the video card (is it compatible with the board) and one stick of memory,( check the specs of the memory and ensure it is compatible with the board in regards to brand,speed and size.) NO IDE devices and then see if it boots.

Last time I saw this it was the board, another time it was the CPU, and another it was a video card incompatibility on the AGP speed.

These kind of faults can be hard to pin down without the access to spare parts for test purpose.

I would suggest taking the PC to a local PC shop and have them check it out for you, unless you have a friend with a similar machine you can use to test the various components.
Regards

Ok, I have this emachine computer and don't feel like buying a new one, I just want to be able to have dual display.

I've heard way too many horror stories with emachines and video upgrades. So should I just keep the onboard and just get a single 24'' or something?

I don't want to fry my mother board and I'm not hardware savy at all.

Or if there is a good tutorial for video upgrades for this exact machine somewhere that would be awesome, but doubt it.

Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I own an E-machines t2885 computer which currently has 512MB DDR SDRAM currently installed. The max supported RAM is 1GB and so I decided to add more memory. I looked around and asked for the right type of RAM and bought 256MB PC2700 DDR RAM. I installed the RAM and turned on my PC. However, I got 3 long beeps and no picture. I checked and my computer has Phoenix BIOS, but I do not find a diagnosis for 3 beeps. I tried removing the 256MB RAM and still I get the same result. After that, I also tried moving the 512MB RAM to the open spot, but still no results. Please help. Thank you in advance.
