Check your BIOS options. There might be a bad video setting somewhere. Also, there's no such thing as a Dell eMachine. They're two separate companies.

Default Monitor Problem

Were the video cards that you tried using AGP or were they PCI? If they were PCI, its possible there is some sort of a conflict. Also, were all of the video cards the same brand? Its possible that the particular brand have a certain problem with the brand of motherboard. Any bios updates could be helpful. Hope this helps. Josh
