Where do you plug in the adaptor on the e machine for wifi


Depends on what kind of Wireless Adapter you are using

There's the Wireless Adapter Card

Comes in three styles of connection,

1) PCI Wireless Adapter Card,

2) And PCI-Express x1 Wireless Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1068811&CatId=2688

PCI-Express x4 style may be out there too.
(I've never bothered to look. I use the USB style)


A Wireless Adapter Card based on the PCI technology, goes in a PCI slot. Generally White in color, but NOT always,

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

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

A Wireless Adapter Card based on the PCI Express technology, is used in a PCI-Express x1 slot,

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

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCIExpress.jpg

Top example is a PCI-Express x4 slot.
Moving down, next is a PCI-E x16 slot
Next, PCI-E x1 slot
Next is a PCI-E x16 slot,
and the last one at the bottom is a PCI slot.

Notice they are all Yellow.
Color of connector does NOT matter.

What the expansion slot is, does........

Also there is a USB Wireless Adapter,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3970955&CatId=2704

This type of Wireless Adapter, plugs into any available USB port on the computer.

Front or back of an eMachines desktop computer, in any available USB port.

Any available open USB port, on an eMachines laptop.

(Or any computer manufacturer)

What is the model number of the eMachines Desktop PC?
Examples, T1090, T2460, W4685, D2246, etc.

I should be able to tell you what motherboard is used inside, and may have access to a link, to the Motherboard Manual.

Post back in a Comment.

Hit start Alienware computer goest to alien head on screen then straight to sleep mode. Please read


When you say computer clock do you mean the LED read out on the mother board? if so the numbers you are seeing are error codes you will need the mother board manual to know what those codes mean. If you don't have the manual it's possible you can go to the mother board manufacturers web site and download one then you can look up the codes to see what the problems are. Hope this helps

Dell optiplex GX620 desktop has an ethernet port on it, that is not an adapter, I cannot connect to the internet, I downloaded and installed a driver for a wireless ethernet adapter, but that has not...


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.

Check all of your adapter cards (PCI or AGP or PCIE) to ensure they are seated into the MB properly. As the problem seems video related double check the graphics adapter if it is a stand alone card. AGP cards can be tricky to seat properly on some mb's

Compaq Presario stuck in sleep mode


Connect the monitor to some other computer, e.g., a notebook, and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then the monitor is the problem.
If it does not, then your computer is not putting-out any "video" signal, and so the monitor goes to "sleep".

If you have MORE than one VGA-output port on your computer, connect your monitor to the "other" VGA port.

Or, press-and-hold the ON/OFF button on your computer, to force it to completely shutdown.

if the power light on the computer comes on, but you get no video or the monitor is powered on but goes into sleep mode then your video adapter on the computer is bad. this is a frequent occurance to the default onboard video adapters connected to the motherboard. you must purchase a pci or agp video card and install into the computer and this will solve your problem. hope this helps, please rate me thanks.

Monitor goes to sleep when booting up


Boot into your BIOS usually del or the f2 key, check what your setting is for your video output, it is more than likely outputting the video through the onboard video and not to your video card.

No connection from cpu to screen.


by working fine, I assume you mean the monitor goes into its test/diagnostic displays. If that is the case, most likely your roommate has hit upon more or less the correct deduction.
Two possibilites should be attempted before assuming to much more tho, one being the connector from the monitor to the computer, check for bent pins on the connector that goes into the computer. Do not worry about what appears to be a missing pin, that is normal for a SVGA connector, only look for bent pins. If you have one of those, it will have to straightened out CAREFULLY with a small metal tube as exists in some ball point pens or a small tweezer, but please be careful as they are very sensitive to over-pressure.
If a bent pin is not the cause then try reseating the video adapter card in the computer, meaning open the case ( with power off and computer unplugged ), take the screw out that holds the video card in place, pull out the video card and immediately place the card back into its slot on the motherboard. Do not try placing the card in another slot until you see if this works. put the adapter holding screw back into its former position and screw it back into place. Be careful that the adapter is properly seated in its slot, not doing so will result in NO VIDEO or even much worse conditions, such as a possible short on the motherboard, resulting in a fried motherboard. I don't think you want that. If this doesn't fix your situation then chances are as your roommate suggested the video adapter card may be bad, but there is one more possible suggestion that might just work, and that is if the video adapter is a PCI card, you may be able to place the video adapter into another PCI slot on the motherboard, above or below its present location. In a few cases that might help you ( assuming you are dealing with a PCI adapter as there is only one AGP slot on a motherboard. ). Never remove or replace components with power applied or even with the power plug still plugged into the wall socket. Newer motherboard built since 2000 will often still have some voltage applied to them from the power supply if the unit is still plugged into the wall socket.
Come back to me and let me know how it goes. Would appreciate it.

Monitor doesn't work


Sounds like a bad video adapter. I'm assuming your emachines has an integrated video adapter. Put in a video card (with the power plug pulled out! Touch the bare metal frame of the computer with your hand before inserting the video card into the agp or pci slot Don't touch the motherboard). If you get video, you may or may not need to install drivers after that. XP has a lot of video drivers, but lacks quite a few of them, too.
