SOURCE: network adapter not showing up in device manager

The tech was incorrect - your network adapter is just not recognized by the system. If you install the correct drivers for your particular network adapter it should be recognized, which should then solve your problem. Search the Gateway website for network drivers for your particular desktop, and if the network adapter was added (not built into the computer) then determine the manufacturer and model of your network adapter, then search the manufacturer's website for the correct drivers.

Even easier, if you still have the original disks that came with your computer and/or network adapter, they should include the correct drivers.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: ATX Power Supply Question

Most new power supplies have a twenty pin Molex connector and a 4 pin Molex connector. If you look closely at the connectors you will see that they go together a certain way. It can be very hard to tell. Take a close look at the shapes of each terminal. Match them up exactly.

"Ethernet cable unplugged"


A few things to try. Plug the cable into a different port on the router to rule out a bad port on router. Try a different ethernet cable (they do go bad). If this is an older router it may not be able to do logic swap on the pins and you would need to use a cross-over cable and not a straight through. Also check in device manager and make sure the computer is not allowed to disable the lan adapter in power saving mode. Also if your really want you can test your ethernet port by buying or making your own loopback plug. Look up ethernet stander T568A. You basically would buy a empty ethernet jack and run a short wire from pin 1 to pin 3 and a wire from pin 2 to pin 6. This will simulate sending data to another device (the other device will simply be the receiving pins on your own ethernet jack.

Okay,..........

1) You can download a wireless Ethernet adapter driver all day, but if you Do Not have a wireless adapter card installed in your computer, the drivers do you no good.

Or if you do not have a wireless USB adapter plugged into a USB port.

Example of a wireless adapter card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4695358&CatId=2692

Example of a wireless USB device,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6367137&CatId=2692

Example of an Ethernet adapter card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

If you are just going to hardwire the computer, just buy an Ethernet adapter card, (PCI version), and install it in your computer, (On the motherboard), in any available white PCI slot.

IF it is the Mini Tower model.

The Desktop, Small Form Factor (SFF), and Ultra Small Form Factor (SFF) computers, are too small in width for a regular size Ethernet adapter card.

They need a Low-Profile Ethernet adapter card,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833114034

This is for a Dell Optiplex GX620 Mini-Tower computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx620/en/ug/A02/mtabout0.htm#wp1051997

Scroll the page down until you come to the bold blue heading - System Board Components
This is an illustration of a Top view of the Mini-Tower's motherboard.

16 and 17 point to two PCI slots.
This is where an Ethernet adapter card that is the PCI version, will plug into.

PCI slots are White in color.
An example of a basic PCI slot, ( 3 are shown),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

If you do decide to go wireless;

1) Wireless networking operates at half of the speed of wired networking.

A computer that is wired directly to an Ethernet adapter card, is twice as fast on the internet, as a computer that is connected wireless.

2) Make sure your Router is capable of wireless.
Make sure the wireless router has a built-in Modem, or that you have a separate Modem.

[ For DSL.
Phone line connects to Filter. Filter has a place for a telephone cable, and an Ethernet cable.
Ethernet cable connects to Filter, and other end connects to Modem.
Ethernet cable goes from Modem to Wireless router that does not have a built-in Modem.

OR,
Phone line connects to Filter. Ethernet cable from Filter goes directly to wireless router, that has a built-in Modem.

Computer has to have a USB wireless device, or a wireless adapter card, installed.

For additional questions, or to clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.

Cannot connect to web.


Follow this steps
1. Connect the provided power adapter from the gateway's POWER port to an electrical outlet. The POWER light on the front of the gateway should be green. 2. Connect the provided gray phone cable from the gateway's PHONE LINE port to the DSL filter jack labeled DSL/HPNA. 3. Connect the yellow Ethernet cable provided with the gateway from the LOCAL ETHERNET port on the gateway to your computer's Ethernet port
With your computer completely started, verify the POWER and ETHERNET indicator lights on the front of the 2Wire gateway are green. If they are not, see "Understanding the Indicator Lights" on page 15. The INTERNET indicator light will not turn green until the gateway software has been installed and an Internet connection has been established.

We have a desktop computer((Model: GATEWAY 838GM) misplace the ADAPTER for the CPU which one to get please thanks


sallyduby we may have some confusion here.

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

CPU does not refer to a Personal Computer. At least not since the 1960's, and not unless you wish to confuse someone with the wrong reference. ;)

This is Gateway Support > Gateway 838GM Desktop PC > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/5389/5389nv.shtml

In the list click on Components.

A) There is no adapter device for the CD drive, or DVD drive, unless this is a mistaken reference to the flat ribbon data cable

B) There is no adapter device for the Harddrive, unless this is a mistaken reference to the SATA data cable that connects the SATA harddrive to the motherboard.

C) There IS possibly an adapter for the Keyboard, if you are using a Keyboard with a USB connector on the end of the cable, and are not using the original Keyboard that has a PS/2 connector.

Example;

http://www.directron.com/freeusbps2.html

D) There is no adapter for the Media Card Reader, unless this is a mistaken reference to the data cable that connects the Media Card Reader to the motherboard.

E) There are no adapters for the Ram Memory module/s.

F) There are no adapters for the Modem. The Modem plugs straight into the motherboard.

G) There are no adapters for the Motherboard, unless a USB mouse, or again a USB keyboard, is being used.
The same style of adapter for the USB Keyboard will also work for a USB mouse.

H) There is no adapter for the Power Supply, unless this is a reference to a power cable adapter that could go to a computer case fan, from a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

(The 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, and it's connector, are shown in the middle photo.
The Harddrive example/s shown is an IDE {PATA} harddrive. This style of Harddrive uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable)

I) There is no adapter for the Intel Pentium 4 CPU {Processor} (3.0GHz, 800MHz FSB)

The motherboard has an LGA 775 processor socket.
The Processor has the socket holes, while the processor socket has the pins.
775 socket holes, 775 pins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Unless this is a mistaken reference to the Fan/Heatsink combo that sits on top of the CPU.

Typical Fan/Heatsink combo example of Processors (CPU's) using an LGA 775 processor socket,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2943299&CatId=493

(Except the Gateway version is square)

J) No adapter for the Speakers unless I am mistaken.

Post back in a Comment, and give at least a general description of the adapter you are referencing to.

Laptop won't power on with ac adapter or battery


Could be a combination of things.

1) Battery is low. Not enough power to turn the laptop on.
Caused by;

2) AC adapter has a plug on the end of the cable. The plug plugs into a DC Power Jack on the laptop.

The DC Power Jack is bad.

2a) The DC Power Jack has a bad connection to the motherboard, (Cracked solder joints), and/or the jack itself is bad.

2b) Center Pin is loose in the jack's mount.
The back of the Center Pin where it mounts has become loose.

2c) The plastic body of the jack, which composes the jack's case, is cracked. This allows movement of the Center Pin.

2b, and 2c cause a bad connection with the AC adapter plug.

No charge to the Battery, no power to the laptop.

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/For-Gateway-MX6920-DC-Power-Jack-GW51425.html

[ If this is the case the DC Power Jack needs to be resoldered to the motherboard. The cracked solder joints need to be re-melted, (Reflowed)
Entire laptop needs to be disassembled down to the bare motherboard in your hand.
(No Processor, Ram Memory, or any adapter cards mounted to the motherboard. Nada)

OR,
The DC Power jack needs to be replaced.
This entails disassembling the entire laptop, down to just the motherboard in your hand. (Same as above)

The old DC Power Jack is de-soldered, and a new one soldered in place.

Very FEW computer repair shops have the necessary skill level.
They just want to replace the entire motherboard.
IF one is available.
More Ka-Ching for them also. ]

3) The AC adapter is bad.
Not providing power to the laptop, to charge the Battery, nor give power to the laptop without the Battery.

AC adapter cord from adapter to plug, which plugs into the laptop, (DC Power Jack), may have a break in it.

May be an intermittent contact provided by wiggling the cord.
If this is the case the wires have stretched, and broken.
Wiggling causes the wires to briefly touch, and make contact.

Where this cord meets the plug itself. A lot of times there is a break in the wires in this area.

Solution is to replace the AC adapter. There are universal AC adapters you can buy, or perhaps Gateway still has some for sale.

I think my network card is bad. My internet / email isn't working on my desktop (although it works fine on my laptop). And the computer is not recognizing anything when I type ipconfig. So, i think i need...


since the network card is built onto the motherboard reinstalling the driver would be the best first option.

HERE is the link to the driver.
Broadcom827.exe - Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver Version: 8.27.1.0
Supports: Windows XP
Note: This is the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver for use with the Big Lake, Cortez, and Putton Bay motherboards in Windows XP.

I would try that first.

Problems with IP address


Hi,

Possible three (3) solutions:
1. Purchase and install a PCI LAN card (NIC) inside your "old tower". Should not be that difficult using any available PCI slot. Most would be auto detect/install by Windows (XP) or should come with a driver CD;
2. Use a USB to Ethernet adapter/converter; and/or
3. Use static IP address for the tower Same IP add (+1 on the last digit, same Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS (if any). Should you need additional information on this method you need to post back details of your modem (brand/model, normally in a sticker underneath) so we can determine if it will allow simultaneous connection on USB & LAN.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Wake on Lan


There is a nice tool - it works fine with me - called FUSION WOL. You need to get first the MAC address and then just "wake" any machine.
