I can't find any decent photos of your laptop online so I can't see what you're seeing, but it may be one of several things:

1) A PCMCIA or Express Card slot - this is a flat, long slot that usually has a dummy plastic "card" in it. You put wifi, network, sound, modem, video capture etc. cards in here

2) A smartcard reader - often located just under an express card slot - is a very thin slot where you put a business-card like ID card which can authenticate you, like a fingerprint. When you take it out your computer locks automatically. These are a defunct security standard usually on business laptops, not used much anymore but it's so small that a lot of laptops come with them anyway. In fact it's easy to not even realize it's there.

3) A proprietary expansion slot - HP in particular are known for putting special "expansion ports" just for HP devices. Perhaps this laptop is the same.



I'd bet it's probably #1.

    Actually, it may also be an HDMI port, for high definition video output (e.g. to a HD TV). If it looks like this, it's HDMI:

    If it looks like this, it's a firewire port, which is a data transfer format used for transferring info between certain high end camcorders, and a few kinds of external hard drives / dvd drive

    If it looks like this, it's an express card / pcmcia port:

How do i store pictures to memory card then upload to my acer laptop. Memory card is to small to fit any slot. This is on a sony ericcson vivaz


You have 2 options. You can connect the phone to your laptop using the micro usb cable. It has a narrow plug which fits into the phone and a wider one which fits into the usb port on the laptop and should have come with the phone. The other option is to buy a card reader for your laptop. These take lots of different types of cards and plug into the usb port on the laptop. The memory card with your phone is a Micro SD card so make sure the card reader you buy is reads these. The card readers are available for around 10 euros from places like Tesco or from computer shops.

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,

Dont know where the port is located on the computer.


Unless the PC has a memory card reader it will NOT have one.(Usually in the slot where the floppy drive would fit) If so you are best advised to buy and external card reader.

They are quite cheap.

Where do i insert a memory card into a gateway md2614 laptop


It depends what type of memory card you are referring to.

USB memory will plug into the USB ports on the left side of the laptop.

If you are using a Memory Sick, Memory Stick Pro, Mini Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, RS_MultiMediaCard, Secure Digital (SD), or xD-Picture card they will go into the memory card reader on the left side of the laptop about 2 inches from the front of the machine. ** NOTE: this is the bottom slot.

If you are using a Type 54 ExpressCard it will also go in on the lfetside but this slot will be above the Memory card reader slot mentioned above.

Good Luck! :-)

UBS port won't allow my memory stick to go in is there a lock on it???


Hello !

Be certain you are trying a USB port. It is rectangular in shape. The USB memory stick will only go in one way. Try flipping it over.

If still a problem ...

Either your USB memory stick is bad or your USB port on your notebook is bad.

Try another memory stick or try a different USB port on your notebook - should determine which is OK and which is bad.

Hope this helps.

Buest Buy geeks tell me my port that takes my camera memory card is missing a pin and they need to send computer away for 2-3 weeks. Is this not covered under my original warranty? Is there a gateway...


Forget repairing it. Just get a external multi-card reader that plugs unto a open USB port. Hopefully you have a USB 2.0 port as the older v ports were slooooow.
