Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I need to install a sound card and connect the power cord
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.
