Sound card for emachines w3653

I have an emachines w3653 desktop. Emachines support page is **** for help. It says I have three pcie slots and integrated 5.1 audio yet I've only got one output for speaker connection. A headphone jack style. I have a surround system that has three headphone plugs on it and I'd like to get a sound card to connect to. Currently I have the three plugs running into a three-way splitter and I know I'm not getting the sound quality that I should be this way. I've tried several forums with this question and no one will give me an answer. Emachines won't reply unless I pay 29.95 per question. Can someone please give me some advice? I know next to nothing about computers. Thanks.

Compatible sound card for el1200


This model only has 1 PCI express 1x slot. So any sound card that uses a PCIe 1x slot. Just google "audio card pcie 1x". This computer has built-in sound so not sure why you want another card.

I want to swap my graphic card from a hp to a emachine


If you give me the model of the hp, the e-machine and the graphics card I could tell if it will work.
There are three types of cards ranked from slow/oldest to fast/new
  • PCI
  • AGP (dedicated graphics)
  • PCIe (16x slots are for graphics cards)


Almost everyone computer for the last 10 or so years will have PCI slots, usually only one no a days
AGP was a dedicated slot for graphics cards also outdated and anything newer than 2004-5 will probably not have one.
PCIe came out in 2004 and replaced AGP.

Trying to install a linksys wireless B ethernet card. When I installed the wireless network adapter it tells me I need to download a internet controller. Where can I find the internet controller download...


It's not a internet controller, it's the driver.
It's not the driver for an emachine w3653 (which is the pc) it's the driver of the Linksys wireless card. Go here
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/linksys
go to the page of your card and from there get the Vista driver.

We have an emachine w3400 and need and new video card but don't know if it is PCI standard or PCI express how do i find out?


The eMachines W3400 desktop computer has an MSI MS-7145 motherboard.
(MSI = Micro Star International, Inc)

This is the MSI MS-7145 motherboard,

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket754/msi7145.shtml

The MSI MS-7145 motherboard, has one PCI Express x16 expansion slot, which is used for a graphics card.

Viewing the bottom left of the photo, you will see three white PCI slots.

Right above them is a longer white slot.
This is a PCI Express x16, expansion slot.

Scrolling down to the subheading - Expansion Slots,
You will see - One PCI Express 16x slot, listed.

Should you require information in installing a PCI Express graphics card, or information on which PCI Express graphics card may fit your needs, state so in a Comment.

My pc name is el1333g-01w and i need help upgrading my graphic card can u purchase any graphic cards for desktop? it doesnt look like i have room to fit one in is there a certain place to get certain...


Google both "PCIe" and " AGP " in images to see what one best matches your old graphics card. After that you can go on newegg.com or another electronics store, even possibly a bestbuy and purchase a card with the same style of port. If you do not have a PCIe or a AGP slot on your machine then you may not be able to upgrade the graphics.

What are the slots on the front panel used for?


Those are card reader slots.

Various types of memory cards can be used.

A memory card, (Or can be stated as Flash Memory Card), takes the place of the old Floppy Disks, for one.

It is digital. There is no disk inside, just hardware electronic components.

Due to the size of trying to explain every type of memory card that is available, and the memory card itself, I would like to give you this link,

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

Here it explains the basic format of a memory card.
You can click on the titles of the memory card/s, (in blue), to get a deeper explanation, of that particular memory card.

The specifications for your eMachines ET1810 Desktop PC, state that you have the following card reader slots for,

1.Compact Flash (Type I and II)
2.CF Microdrive
3.MultiMedia Card (MMC)
4.MMCmobile
5.MMCmicro
6.Reduced-Size MultiMedia Card (RS-MMC)
7.Secure Digital Card (SD)
8.miniSD Card
9.xD-Picture Card
10.Memory Stick
11.Memory Stick PRO
12.Memory Stick PRO Duo
13.Memory Stick Micro (M2)

Look above each slot for an abbreviation.
For example on my computer,

I have one card reader slot that is approximately 1 inch wide.
It looks like a T that is stretched out.
It has SD/MMC/SM/MS/MS-PRO, above it.

This means that the card reader slot will support, (Use),
[In order as printed above],

1.SD Card - Secure Digital Card
2.MultiMedia Card.
3.Smart Media card
4.Memory Stick
5.Memory Stick Pro

I have one more card reader slot. It has CF-Microdrive above it. A wider slot than the above, and looks like a upside down stretched out T.

This means of course that it uses, (Supports), a Compact Flash Microdrive card

I've tried to explain the various card reader slots, on your computer's front panel, without being too technical, or being offensive in nature.

If you want, I can explain as technical as you wish, or simplify my solution more.

This is the Specifications page for your eMachines ET1810,

http://support.gateway.com/emachines/desktop/2009/emachines/et/et1810/ET1810sp2.shtml

Scroll down, and look to the right of the heading - Card Reader.
These are the cards your computer supports, (Uses)

Looking at the main support page for your eMachines, it looks as though you have four card reader slots.
Three grouped together on the left side, and two in the middle.

The two slots to the far right are USB ports, with probably a headphone jack port, and a microphone port to the right of them.

This page gives a little more detail, as to what your card reader slots support,

Ok, i have two things to ask 1: Where is the video card on a emachines W3503? 2: Could a video card swap be done between a W3503 and a W3052? Thank you for viewing :)


1. The emachines W3503 has an integrated ATI Radeon™ X300 based graphics card. It has also a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available.

2. The emachines W3052 has a NVIDIA® GeForce®4™ MX graphics card. I'm not sure whether it is integrated or not, but I'm sure that if it is not, it will be an AGP graphics card. Since The emachines W3503 has a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available for installing a graphics card, the swapping of graphics cards between the 2 machines is not possible since they support different types of graphics cards.

Can I upgrade my graphics card?


You could tell us you model number or look it up yourself on the e-machine website(Link provided below).  I do know that the PCIe x1 slot is only about an inch long. Maybe that is why you didn't see it?

Emachines single beep


It may be necessary to enter the BIOS setup to disable the integrated video and/or turn on the PCI slot(s).
It varies but entering the BIOS setup uses one or more keys (sometimes Esc, sometimes F1) that are pressed right after power on. Check your user guide to see which key give you access.
Most systems aren't smart enough to do that on their own and you may have the system looking at two video processors at the same time and is unable to resolve the conflict.
