How can i attach more usb hubs inmy mother board?


You can install an internal USB hub like in this picture >>>>>leecom72_8.jpg

They go in one of the expansion slot on the front of the computer and usually are powered by one of the white molex plugs that connect to the hard drives and optical drives.

Alternatively, you can get a wired USBhub like in this picture >>>>

I don't know what motherboard it is that i have to download the users manual can you please.....please help me

Turn off the PC. Remove the side panel from the case. Get a flashlight and inspect the mother board. You're looking for a number to identify the type of mother board. ASUS mother boards usually place this number just to the left of the memory slots. It's usually 5 or 6 digit long and made up of both letters and numbers. One of my computers with a ASUS mother board is a P5LD2. Once you know this number you can go to and download updated drivers for *********** board. You may need to identify what type of socket *********** has. If you have a fairly recent Intel microprocessor you probably have a socket 775 mother board. If it's an AMD microprocessor it's probably a SocketAM2 or AM3. You might have to do some searching if these choices don't work. I hope this advice helps you out.

What is the right memmory that would fit for ecs mother board p4 1.8ghz?

You need the model number to tell for sure, but...

Look for numbers at the very end of the memory sockets for numbers WIHTOUT a letter in front, 184 is DDR1, 240 is ddr2. About 1/2 the boards do not have these numbers.

You can also try the business card trick using a regular US size business card, or make a piece of paper exactly 2 inches (51mm) wide.

With good lighting, look into the memory sockets. You'll see a 'nub' close to the middle of the socket. UNPLUG the computer, don't just turn it off. Turn the business card so the shorter edge goes into the shorter side of the memory slot, with one end all the way against the end, like it was a piece of memory.
Count how many pins are left between the edge of the card and the nub.
4 pins left means DDR, 9 pins left means DDR2.

DDR-400 will work in almost any ddr board, and ddr2-800 (aka PC-6400) will work in almost any ddr2 board.

Strangely enough, those also tend to be the cheapest speeds as well as the highest standard speeds.

Expansion slota

eMachines Support > ET1331 desktop computer > Product Views > Rear View,

The metal covers that have the Plus sign ( + ) holes, are Expansion Slot Covers.

Insert a flat tipped screwdriver blade in the + sign hole.
Insert the screwdriver blade horizontally, in the + sign hole, on the right side. ( ---- , not vertical I )

Gently bring the back of the screwdriver down.
This will make the metal slot cover, bend the small metal tab that is holding it.

Go to the + sign hole on the Left side. Do the same on the Left side as the above.

Bring the back of the screwdriver up.

Keep working the metal expansion slot cover back, and forth, until the two small metal tabs that are holding it in, break.

Remove the metal expansion slot cover.

Before you begin, ensure that the expansion slot cover you wish to remove, lines up with the wireless adapter card.

Have any questions concerning this, post in a Comment.

3. the luminous tube or inverter ( internal ) has gone bad and need repair.
