  1. emachine t2862 video not working

    MY grandmother has a emachine t2862 and the only thing that comes on is the fans in the pc. The monitor acts like it wants to but then a messege comes on the screen saying monitor is fine check your pc. I thought this might be the video card so I bought one to install. After putting it in and turning the pc back on nothing happened. I tried going in to BIOS by tapping delete but nothing happened. If I can't get into BIOS to disable onboard video whats next step. Help.

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

    I suggest checking everything inside,then do a bare bones setup.
    Having only the cpu, ram and onboard video,(keyboard too) just to see
    if you get to bios.
    To install a new vid card ,w/o new vid card installed.
    Go into bios and disable on board video, reboot and turn off the machine
    right away. Install new card and boot normally.
    post back to let us know
