  1. I just bought this re-conditioned emachine from tigerdirect.com and it has worked great...till about a week or so ago the monitor will not come on. i tried another monitor and nothing happened, and i put both monitors on older computer and worked just fine. i figured it is the onboard graphics card but i do not know what graphics card to buy that will fit and work properly. i have found some on ebay but do not know if they are compatible. I dont need anything super fast just want it to work same as the old one. It says it has NVIDIA GeForce 7050 Integrated. Thank you

    Looking at the newegg page for that item ( Emachines ET1831-01 ) it seems it has a PCI-Express x16 slot open.

    So, any PCI-Express card would work, such as:
    HD3450

    Which is a decent card for regular stuff the 7050 would've taken care of, plus it'll do a decent job on video.
