Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

Trying to install a video card for my nephew. Nothing fancy. He has an emachines w3650 and has an EVGA geforce9600gt card. The card is pci-e 2.0 512ddr3. When we put the card in his case and start up the screen is just black nothing shows up. Downloaded drivers but when we go to install it just says there is no compatible device. Not sure what to try?


Answers :

Where do you plug the monitor ? To the onboard video card or the new card? Go to the BIOS and disable the onboard Video card, and plug the cable to the new card only, then install the drivers.
\015\012Good luck
The reason may be the card is not in the correct slot. PCI-E means PCI Express which is the fastest card availble. Its the smallest white slot on the motherboard. If it is not working or there is no "2 inch long slot" then the motherboard is not setup to handle that type of card architecture. The next brand you would look for is one that says only PCI or AGP.

Network Adapter not working. Thought it might be a bad driver issue and downloaded a new driver but can not get the device manager to show anything. Tried System restore to a date when things were fine, however still nothing showed in device manager. Dose this mean the network adapter is shot ? Also was wondering if the adapter is part of the Motherboard ? It looked to me like it was attached to it. Any suggestions or feedback would be appreciated. For now running internet through USB.


If nothing is showing in device manager it will be the card it self and most times they are part of motherboard it self. Easy way to see would be is too look and see is it metal square peace on motherboard or is it like a card that plugs in the board ...
