    What video card did you get? I think you might just have gotten an AGP 4x/8x and it won't work with your mother board. But to disable the onboard graphics you need to enter your BIOS. I usually just push F8 when I start up. When you go in there just find your onboard video setting and switch it to off.

    And for the future. please just click edit and add on so you don't stack up posts like that :)

    ok heres what you do. first if your vpu(video card) is plugged in right now take it out. then boot up your system. then go to the my computer icon right click on then go down to properties. a new window should open up. then click on the hardware tab then click on device manager. a new window should open up. then on device manager look for display adapter an disable it an shut down your pc then plug in your vpu an hook it up to your monitor and you should be good to go.

    ok you can try this. insert your video and plug your monitor to your onboard vpu. start up your pc. then go to my computer right click go down to properties. click on hardware tab then go to device manager. then go to display adapter and tell me what you see under it.

    @James,

    1) If you got into your BIOS with DEL, then you don't need to try it with F8.
    2) In your BIOS, aside from having the option to switch between AGP and PCI; was there an option to disable onboard video?

    It won't help to disable the onboard video in the Windows properties if your BIOS hasn't activated your computer's ability to use the PCI slot for your video card.

    Surely if you can select AGP/PCI in BIOS then your motherboard has an AGP slot otherwise why would they include the option

    There's no need to uninstall the original i would've thought,i've just installed a new AGP graph card and it was detected immeadiatley on startup and i have'nt disabled the onboard,there's no conflicts


    your new card should automatically be detected if it's not are you sure it's installed properly i.e is card fitted all the way in to slot or perhaps the card is faulty

    emachine is tempermental with pci videocards as had to work on 2 of them for 2 different customers who were playing games that the onboard video couldn't handle. installed the ati 9250 pci cards & had to play with the bios to get them to post with new videocard.

    i set the memory share in the bios for the onboard down to 1 meg or 512k. power wise i think you are alright as it is just playing around in the bios that you need to do. also make certain the new card works 1st as is possible it is a doa(dead on arrival). try 1 adjustment at a time to see if works or not. just checked emachine site for the 633 series etower, they suggest nVidia FX5200 PCI 128MB DDR TV-Out Graphic Card so is possible the herc might not work with emachine but not certain.
