Post Video Card

I just got a eMachines T5088 and I was adding RAM to it, and changing some stuff, but when i got to the point where i had to instert the video card, there alraedy was an intergrated one into the mobo, and the PCI slot was empty, i put it in, it wouldent detect it, i tried uninstaling the drivers for the int card, and disabling it in BIOS nothing seemed to please.

Thanks in advance

Did you put in a pci or pci-e card?


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

firstly, y did u take out the vid card?

forget that. put the vid card back, unplug the computer, and reset the bios using the pins on the motherboard. (google for: resetting bios tutorial pins, or something like that). Then, if you can get into the bios settings (hold delete while its booting), try to disable the onboard video.

and a little more info would be nice. like... what kind of video card?

try going into bios with the integrated chip. if there is a setting to use pci for video then you can change that. and save settings. then turn computer off cause you will loose video.

then put in the pci card and boot up.

if it doesnt work you can always pull the bios battery after shutting down and it will clear the bios settings back to default again.

btw .. what are the settings to pick for video ?
