by ajhatinbox / January 24, 2008 12:05 AM PST

i have an emachines t6536 and just bought an evga geforce 7300gt i followed the manual perfectly, (even disabled onboard video adapter), and when i plug the moniter into the new card, and start up my computer, i can hear it logging in (all the normal windows music and stuff) but the screan is blank! if i plug the moniter into the onboard, it still works for some reason, and the screan has been loaded! this is not the first time this has happened, (other video cards too, all nvidia) i just want to play the games that i bought this computer for.

send tips to bizsystm@inbox.com or post here

Reverify that the bios video port was disabled. Check the Nvidia setting pgm. for any selection of video ports or displays, swap if need be. Boot into safe mode and goto the device mgr. and delete all reference of video ports/cards, exit out and shut down. Attach cable to new video card, reboot and enter the bios, reverify video port disabled, if correct OK, no, correct it, save and exit out. Allow it to continue booting, hopefully it sees new h/w and you proceed with install then or its a plain video connection, now start the install after finish of boot. This all becomes a "catch-22 situation" if it keeps defaulting to build-in port, that a bios glitch, see if eMachines has any new bios patches that may address this.

Are you sure any extra video power plugs are attached on the video acrd itself(if required)?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
