Don't know if anyone knows or not, but what would be the best way too upgrade the video on this computer?? Some say it has pci express 16 and some say it doesn't. If it only has a pci slot...are there any DX 9 upgrade options in a pci video card? Also I was wanting too find out where too find a bios upgrade for this thing so that I'd be able too also upgrade the video bios too. Any help would be appreciated...


Thanks,
Data98 :tazz:

Hi and welcome go Geeks to Go. I would suggest you start at EMachine's web page. They should have your answers there.

Although I would normally agree with Austin_o that the manufacturers website is the best place to start, I also know that emachines online product support is about as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike.

I have been able to find the basic specs for your system but not the exact motherboard model, only the chipset which is the Intel 915GV.
This means that the board has Intel GMA 900 grahics accelerator built in to it but whether the board also provides a PCI-Express slot as well, I'm not sure.

I suspect you may have to open up the case & look inside in order to determine exactly what empty slots you have.

Check to see the make and model of the motherboard, E-Machines uses a lot of common boards and you may have better luck at the mobo mfrs. site.
