Gateway IR emitter / reciever card cable ?

I purchased this card: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009586/1009586rvr6.shtml but did not include cable to hook up to motherboard. card has 8 pin connector on it, trying to figure out how I would connect those to the motherboard (CIR transmitter on board preferably) the card is part of gateway models: GM5485E, GM5485H, GM5632E, GM5638E, GM5639E, GT4220m, GM5643E, GT4222m, GM5664, FX7020, GT3248m, GT4224m, FX7029E, DX440X, DX441X so was hoping owner of said machines could send me photos which show how card is connected in one of those machines (internal, color coded cables, etc..) so that I could build such a cable... or if you have/don't use IR functionality, could just send me the cable or point me in direction of where to purchase said cable or information. Thanks

SOURCE: i just bought a new motherboard and managed to swap everything....except the power switch cable

whew..that's not as simple as it looks. You'll need a pin out configuration guide, if one exists, or you'll need to make one. The power interface from front panel, is usually unique to each Dell, so its' not likely to swap over.

got backup for that Dell?

SOURCE: Dell Optiplex GX620 PC is failing to power up

You may have a failed motherboard then. Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything. Make sure you look at all of them, on DELL's especially look under the cooling fan shroud as well. The dead giveaway is the fact that you are not getting anything after you changed the PSU. There are a few companies that will repair broken capacitor issues. Also if you add a bunch of extra components without upgrading the power supply you can suffer underpowered situations and that can cause internal parts to fail.
To eliminate some other stuff you could remove the memory and disconnect all the power plugs from the drives and then try to start it up. If it does not change the behavior at all (no beeps, no change in flashing lights) then you probably have motherboard issues. Make sure when disconnecting the memory chips (sticks) that you touch the metal on the inside of the case first to discharge static electricity. If it does change the behavior add 1 component or item back at a time to see what you can find out. Post back with what you find. And remember a bad PSU does not mean no power, just not enough to run the computer. Is the PSU that you replaced the same or greater output watts?

SOURCE: I have a VPR Matrix

No, VPR Matrix doesn't show information.

http://www.vprmatrix.com/products_desktop_2250.asp

That's okay though. I would like you to take a flashlight, and view the motherboard closely. I need to know who made the motherboard, and what the model number is.

FIRST!
With all Due Respect, I would like you to STOP, (Not shouting), using a vacuum to clean the inside of your computer out.

The vacuum creates Static electricity. Static will FRY OUT the hardware components inside your computer. POOF! No computer!

You may have already done this repeatedly, and have had no problems. All it takes is once.

For a test. Put the wand attachment above your head. Bring it to about 1 inch above your hair, parallel to the floor, and the nozzle end beyond the front of your face.

Have someone turn the vacuum on. Your hair lifts up. This is caused by Static.
Thank you for letting me say that.

It is Much better to use a can of compressed air for computers. Yes, I know it costs more, but it's cheaper than buying another computer.
(About $6 to $8 USD)

BEFORE you reach inside your computer, unplug it from power. ALSO, touch the metal frame of the computer case. This will relieve Static from your body.
Now you are safe, and your computer is safe.
(Work on a table. A Bed, Couch, or directly on a carpet floor are High areas of Static)

You may have to move cables to the side, and accidentally touch components inside your PC.

Look in the center of the motherboard. Also look near the edges. One more common place is in-between the expansion slots.

Expansion slots examples are, PCI slot {White in color},
AGP slot, {Usually Brown}
Due to the hardware components listed above in the VPR Matrix link, I don't think you have a PCI-Express slot.

This gives more detail about the PCI expansion slot, and AGP slot, for identification,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motherboard

Look at the photo on the upper right of the page. You can click on the photo to enlarge. The long white slots at the top of the motherboard, are PCI slots. The long Brown slot is an AGP slot. All are Expansion Slots.

On the motherboard you will notice ASUS. It is upside down in the photo, and in-between the brown AGP slot, and the third white PCI slot.

That is the motherboard manufacturer's name. Asus
To the left over by the blue ram memory slot is the Model Number.
It's on a white strip.
A8N-VM CSM Revision 1.10

If I have this information I may be able to find the Motherboard Manual.
I will give you the link to it, and also detail out where the Power On switch, (Button) wires go.

They will go to a Front Panel header on the motherboard. We just don't know where yet. (Connector on a motherboard is called a Header)

Don't worry, we'll find out where those wires go.

My sansung pn50a460s4dxza says it is 3d ready. how can i use this feature on my tv.


Your tv is a 2008 model, legacy 3d tv and requires a lot more than a current 3d HDTV does to view 3d. Today with a current 3d HDTV, Normally you only need a 3d source like a 3d Bluray movie and 3d glasses from Samsung and a HDMI cable connection from bluray player to HDTV. See below for your TV. You need a PC and IR emitter and Samsung 3d glasses plus user selected options on the tv.
Samsung 3-D Ready HDTV How do Samsung 3-D Ready HDTVs work?
Samsung 3-D Ready HDTVs are enabled by Digital Light Processing (DLP(R)) or Plasma Display Panel (PDP) engines that are capable of very fast refresh rates (120Hz). The inherent speed of these display technologies enables high quality stereoscopic 3-D by alternatively displaying left and right eye images. The display is synchronised with 3-D shutter glasses to provide the observer with a vivid perception of depth.
How do I connect my PC to a Samsung 3-D Ready HDTV?
The DVI output from the PC's graphics card must be connected to the TV's 3-D compatible HDMI port using a DVI-to-HDMI cable (or a HDMI cable plus a DVI to HDMI adaptor).
Alternatively, some newer graphics cards have a HDMI port instead of a DVI port. In this case, simply use a HDMI cable to connect the PC directly to the TV.
On all models, the 3-D compatible HDMI port is identified by the letters "DVI". (eg, "HDMI 3/DVI IN" or "HDMI 1/DVI IN")
What other equipment do I need to enjoy 3-D on my 3-D Ready HDTV?
  • Windows PC with DVI output
  • Compatible 3-D Shutter glasses and IR emitter with VESA compatible sync connector
How do I connect the IR emitter to the 3-D TV to support wireless 3-D shutter glasses?
The IR emitter should be connected to the "3D SYNC OUT" socket. The emitter should be placed on top of the TV with the LEDs facing towards the room. How do I turn the TV into 3-D mode?
Ensure that the TV source is set to "HDMI 3/DVI" (or "HDMI 1/DVI" for 720p models).
Plasma HDTVs Press the Tools button and select 3D Effect. Update from Off to Mode1.

Screen goes off showing VGA with cable on the screen


This looks like a bad cable connection. Try using a new cable for the connection between the computer and monitor. If that does not work test you computer on another monitor to make sure you are getting signal output from the video card.Also check the monitor on another computer.This is to check and make sure the monitor is working properly.You can also try using a add on video card in the computer to see if you can use the monitor this way.If you still are having problems. You can use this web address to get customer from Gateway. http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1013953/1013953nv.shtml. I hope this helps you with your problem.
