is it a sound idea to replace a bad integrated adapter? I am thinking about trying this, but am afraid that the rest of the motherboard will just go bad soon, if it hasnt already. thanks all

Let me guess, the unit seems to work, fans spin, but no display.

It sounds to me like another emacine that is a victim of the Bestec power supply that comes in them, goes bad, & fries the motherboard.

Not to be a crepe hanger but I doubt a video card will do any g9ood,

You'll need a power supply & motherboard.

BTW, DON'T hook that power supply to another motherboard or it will fry it too.

Thanks for the advice. Mine is actually not an e-machines, its an hp with an already replaced power supply. But it makes sense that the power supply could ruin the motherboard and therefore the video adapter.

I was answering the person [OP] that started the thread.

"I have an e-Machines T1440 with an LM810E motherboard. I think the integrated or on-board VGA adapter has gone bad "


When a second poster jumps in a thread asking for help the thread & advice become confusing.

I have split this topic into it's own thread. Like, fairjoeblue says, taking over another topic confuses matters. Please continue the discussion of your problem here bigddy263 :thumbsup:
