Wrong Card Slot

I recently bought this card, when i got it home, i opened my computer and the slot wasn't the same as the one on the card, so i opened my more recent computer and a different slot again. how do i install the right slot, because when i realised it was the longer one, my older computer doesn't have an actual slot, so is there any way i can put a slot in there?

Trotter, since this card is a 6600, most likely it is either PCI or AGP. You must have these slots in order to utilize the card. PCI slots are usually white and AGP are green or brown. ISA slots are black. And no, you cannot put in a slot. The slots are there from time of manufacturing. You would have to upgrade your motherboard or downgrade your video card.

First, shut down the computer. Next, you will need to locate an unused expansion slot and then determine which type it is. Most newer PC's have "PCI" and "PCI express" slots (there are others). See the image below to help you identify the slots in your PC.


Choose a sound card that will fit one of these unused slots. Read the directions with the sound card. Some will have you install software first - others want the card installed first. Install the card into the slot and secure in slot with screw or clamp used by your PC and software in the order instructed.

You can also install a USB sound card instead of an internal type. This is required if you do not have an available slot or if you are not comfortable opening the PC. Most PCs with sound cards built into the motherboard will automatically be disabled when a second card is introduced to the computer - USB type or otherwise. If yours does not, you may have to disable it in the BIOS or physically remove to old sound card installed in one of the expansion slots.

Good luck!

Why aark24 audio card does not fit into PCI slot of Lenovo i3 processor ( windows 8 ) ?

If it does not fit in the slot, it's the wrong slot! It may be a PCI-e slot you are trying to insert the audio card into. It is very similar, but will only accept PCI-e cards. If your computer has a PCI-e slot, it should at least have one PCI slot as well (but, not all do).

How to install video card?

Hello Ruel

I have step by step procedure about installing video card.
1. Turn off your PC, unplug it, and remove your computer's case. "Your computer should have either a PCI-Express 16x or AGP slot for your card. The card won't fit into the wrong slot, so you can't go wrong. But don't confuse your computer's thin memory slots for its video card slot."
2. With a small screwdriver, remove the screw holding in the old card or the metal cover. "Don't lose that screw! You need it to secure the new card in place."
3. If you're replacing an old card, pull it up and out of the slot (left). "If you're not replacing an old card, remove the metal cover from the back of your computer (right)."
4. Hold the card by its edges and position it over the correct slot. "The edge with the shiny metal bracket should face toward the back of your computer. (That shiny bracket replaces the cover, if you removed one.)"
5. Line up the tabs and notches on the card's bottom with the notches in the slot. Push the card slowly into the slot. "You may need to rock the card back and forth gently. When the card pops in, you can feel it come to rest. Don't force it!"
6. If the video slot has it, bend out the flexible plastic retaining clip that fits over a tab on the end of the video card. "When the card fits into the slot, release the clip, letting it hold the card in place."
7. Secure the card in the slot with the screw you removed in Step 3, then plug the computer back in, turn it on, and see whether Windows recognizes and installs the card. "Windows usually recognizes newly installed cards and sets them up to work correctly."
8. If everything's working, put your PC's cover back on. "If something goes wrong, turn off your computer, unplug it, and make sure you've seated the card correctly."

Be careful not to touch any chips. Touch as little as possible on the video card or inside your machine.
If possible, do the installation in an non-carpeted area to avoid static.
If possible, use the slot with the most open space around it.
If you do not understand these instructions or you lack good manual dexterity, have a qualified technician install the video card for you.

Best Regards

I have Acer m5641 desktop,& I bought Encore Gigabit pci lan card.When I install it to the Pci slot my computer is not working what should I do?? pls. help me!!

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and make sure you have the LAN Card pushed down in the pci slot all the way. If it is not in the slot all the way, the computer will have problems.

I'm assuming you replaced your old network card with this Encore card because the old one which is built onto the motherboard stopped working, right? If not, remove the Encore Card and reboot to see if your system boots up. If it does, and when you put the Encore card back in all the way it still does not boot, then maybe you bought a card that is not compatible with your system. Maybe you bought a VGA type card and you might need a AGP type or vice versa.

Canon SD1300 memory card locked

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. But, if you've checked the slide switch, the internal switch in the card slot may be jammed by a grain of sand or gunk. Here are troubleshooting steps for this problem. Recommend the toothpick fix for your particular problem.

Depending on what model you bought (I am assuming one of the newer ones) it doesn't have a PCMCIA socket.

Graphics card problem

Hi rovin,
So you bought an XFX GeForce 256MB video card. You're board has 1 free AGP 8x video slot & 3 PCI (White opened slots).
You mention there is not slot for the new card. (What type of video card did you buy)? PCI-E, AGP or PCI?
The only slot you're board does not have is a PCI-Express.
Look in you're manual on page 1-7 for the location of the AGP video card slot.
94565e6.jpg If you bought the wrong card, exchange it for an AGP 8x or PCI.
The ASUS P5PE-VM uses a integrated Intel® 865G chipset with integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2 Technology, which uses you're system memory to function.
If you need a manual you can download it from Asus. Click on the link to open to the P5PE-VM download site.

I hope you find this helpful.

It is easy to get the PCI & PCIE stuff mixed up. PCI slots are all white doesn't matter who makes the board. PCIE however is all together different from a PCI slot. The PCIE slot sits fauther away from the back of the computer & so does a AGP. PCIE is a very long card. A PCI is not. The short slot you saw is also a PCIE slots. Not for video but more likely for network card. Most people never use them. Most likely the long slot above the short slot is a PCIE. So you want a card that is like what I'm going to list in this link.|c:1558|&Sort=0&Recs=10
Please list the model number of your Dell & I can tell you exactly what video card you need.
please vote... I'll check back in an hour or two.
