Mom's e-machine p/supply started smoking. So she started pulling the cables out to unhook it. In doing so she pulled the jack off the M/board. A friend came me a graphics card to use but it to long for the slot. Can I put it back in or do i need a new one?

Hi JMLSCOOP...

You might shop around a bit and see if you can find a PCI video card. That should fit in the slots you have. I'm afraid the alternative is to buy a new motherboard from eMachines.

Added a pci/video card but nothing happened. I've got power to the hd,cd,dvd, and floppy drives. The fans comes on the p/s and m/b. but nothing comes on the the screen. Put the software in and nothing. Also the computer comes on when the power is plugged up??????????????????????????? I'm thinking Motherboar

I would be inclined to agree with you...that the motherboard has been damaged. You did replace the smoked power supply, right?

Sure did! Apparently they are bad for taking m/b out when the p/s goes bad.
