Hello, another newbie here.
I have an older Emachines (Acer) EL 1850G-42W ( Windows 7) that I was successfully using a 32" HD monitor that has a VGA input port. I wanted at first to use the HDMI input port on the monitor. I purchased an adapter that plugs into the VGA port and electronically converts VGA to HDMI output. It didn't work and now I can't get the VGA output to work at all. I then purchased an MSI GeForce GT 710 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card and installed it. That does not work on any of it's ports either. I have been dealing with this for over a month and can't get it resolved. I am hoping someone else has had some success installing a new graphics into an older PC like mine.
