  1. Emachine T6410
    Athlon 3200+ 2.2ghz
    MSI RS-480 MObo
    Kingston 1.5gb ram pc2700
    Xpress 200 on-board graphics
    160 gb hard drive

    Went from on-board (disabled in Bios) to Sapphire X-800 GTO 128 mb ...install fine, worked fine for 8 months.....

    ..then upgraded to PNY 7900 256mb.(ran driver cleaner)...install went fine....no probs....then built new gamer rig,...so Uninstalled the Nvidia with driver cleaner.....installed old X-800 GTO, and rebooted to blank screen...."no video input".... put in 7900 and got basic vga screen.....rebooted to Bios, enabled on-boad Xpress 200...worked fine....dropped in the x800 and again had a blank screen.......I tried to download latest Catalyst driver and it wouldnt install...said " Hardware device for driver not found" .......

    tried X800 on new system with ASus mobo and again came up with a blank screen....

    so both systems did not recognize the ATI X800, even though its fan was spinning.........did I fry the card? any suggestions?

    I think from what you describe, the card itself is bad. Did you have a look around this site about this problem? Problems with eMachines? There are probably thousands of post about eMachines here.

    BTW....Welcom to Techspot!!!!

    Yeah it's easy to fry a card with static electricity or pulling it out improperly etc. If it doesn't work in both PCs, I think it's time to say goodbye :).
