No video imput, Help Please

I have a E-machine model W6409.  I have 3 ghz processor, 1.5 ghz of RAM, 720 gb of hard drive.  It came with 128mb on board video card. I upgraded the sound card to go with my 7.1 surrond system.


Everything worked fine for along time,  One day I tried to turn it on and it would not work.   The monitor said that there was no imput.  I tried another monitor and  the same problem.  I tried another video card and the same problem.  Please help me find a solution for my puter.  I miss it.

Did you disable the onboard video card in bios?

JohnHawaiinGoodheartAuthor Commented:
I cannot get bios up because the monitor says there is no imput.  This is the whole problem.  I wonder if it some problem because its an e-machine.  Could it be the CPU?

2PiFLCommented:
Sorry about that.  eMachines are extremely proprietary, that's their biggest problem.  If it were the cpu you'd get a beep code.  Of course a bad video card should give you a beep code, so that tells me  that the video card is bad on the output side.  It seems our options are limited.

The 2nd video card won't work until the onboard card is disabled.

JohnHawaiinGoodheartAuthor Commented:
Ok.   Problem is fixed. It was the sound card.  Computer booted with the minumum.  Mobo +ram+cpu=video card.  I added others until the sound card.  Then the computer would not boot


This means the sound card is bad?  Should I throw it away?

I will wait for you to anwer this question (if you can) then I will award you the points.  Thanks for you help 2pifl and nobus.
