Assuming you have purchased a new sound card, it should have come with the driver disk.
First remove the side panel of the computer. Should be one or two screws in the rear of the PC.
Next, unplug the Power cable. (the thick black cable that goes to the power on the wall.)
You will need an open slot in which to insert the card.
The sound card will most likely have a PCI bus interface (meaning it plugs into a White PCI slot on the mainboard. The silver part with the jacks on it will be facing the back of the computer. Slide it into the white slot and secure with a screw or bracket. It should slide all the way into the slot; you have to apply mild pressure, but do not force it.
Once it is plugged in, connect the speakers (usually a green plug) and connect power, then start the computer.
Install drivers using the driver disk that came with the sound card. Then test sound using speakers.

W3502 emachine SM Bus Controller driver


Looks promising. It's an INF fie which are driver files. Download, extract, and direct Device Manager where to install driver from. The worst that can happen is it won't install, or you have uninstall / delete. Better than those fake drivers you mentioned.

My dimension 3100 is not detecting a modem


Sir,
Respectfully please first check if there is a modem in the desktop PC since the dimension 3100 is not pre-equipped with a modem. you have to attach an internal modem manually on one or more PCI slots on the mother board.
the process is given here....

1
  • Turn off the computer. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. Disconnect the power cord, attached peripheral devices and any other cables.

  • 2 Locate the cover release latch on top of the computer, near the back. Place the computer on its side, with the removable cover facing upwards. Slide the cover release latch back and lift the removable cover off of the computer. Set the removable cover aside.

  • Locate the PCI and PCI Express slots near the bottom of the system board. Select a slot that corresponds with your internal modem card. Open the card retention door on the back of the computer and remove the filler bracket for the card slot you will be using.

  • 4 Place the internal modem card into the appropriate card slot and press it firmly into place. Close the card retention door. Replace the removable cover and return the computer to an upright position.
  • 5 Connect one end of the telephone cord into the LINE port on your internal modem card; plug the remaining end into a telephone jack. If desired, connect a telephone to the internal modem card via the PHONE port.
  • 6 Reconnect the power cord and all previously disconnected cables. Plug the power cord into an available electrical outlet. Turn on the computer. If any installation software came packaged with the internal modem card, run the program and follow the onscreen directions. Your internal modem is now ready for use.

    You need to install the video driver for your computer- Usually there is a disk with drivers, however you can go to the Emachines support site- http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html and download your drivers

    Where does the video card go in a t3302 model emachine?


    This particular model have AGP expansion slot located on motherboard, as this is rather obsolete computer, I am not sure if this is financially viable solution.

    You will need phillips screwdriver.

    To proceed with upgrade:

    1. Switch off computer,
    2. Remove power cord and monitor cord, if you want, you can disconect all remaining cords as well, but only if you are moving computer elsewhere.
    3. Remove two thumbscrews holding left side (grill) panel, then slide it back and lift off
    4. AGP slot is located below processor, just above white PCI slots, it is offset slightly towards front of the computer. If there is little screen mounted in first hole, remove it, depending how it is mounted by either, removing of the screw, or breaking it from the case.
    5. Orient your card and insert it firmly in AGP slot, card should fit snuggly without bending or excessive force. Use screw to mount it to the back of the case frame.
    6. Connect all cables, monitor cable to new installed video card, start your computer and check if there is display, if you have BIOS display, switch off computer, you installed your video card correctly.
    7. Replace side moving it in reverse to removal, hung it first on the top and then slide forward, secure it back with thumbscrews.
    8. Start back your computer
    9. Install video drivers and setup your display to desired resolution.

    Enjoy!

    EMachine Video Card upgrade


    Ok so are you getting video from the card? Look in system information and see what graphics hardware the computers says is installed. Are you replacing a video card or did you add a card to the system? If you are adding a card make sure that you change the settings in the BIOS to boot first on AGP/PCI-E express slot. Make sure that fast write settings and bus speed settings are compatible with your card. For example if you purchased a 8X AGP card and your computer only does 4X the card may not work. Double check that you are trying to install the correct drivers for your card and operating system.

    How to connect emachine flat monitor to my computer?


    Hello,

    It sounds as if you are missing the power cord for the monitor. If the cord did not come with your monitor/PC, you can pick one up at any Radio Shack or electronics store. If you could forward me your eMachine model number as well as the monitor model number, I will see if I can better solve this for you without you having to spend anymore money.

    Best Regards,
    Franklin, C2Solutions

    Problems with computer booting into monitor


    Install the driver for the monitor on your emachine? If you have a driver already installed, try reinstalling it or check that you have the latest version.
    If you do not have the cd-rom with the driver, go to the monitor manufacturer's website and download the driver.
    This should solve the problem :-)
