I have Wolfdale 1333-D667 motherboard which Supports Dual Channel DDR2 667/533 memory. Can i upgrade it with a DDR3 Graphics card?


atlantisshak, you can use a graphics card with ANY graphics ram memory.

A graphics card has it's own Processor, and graphics memory.

Doesn't depend on the system resources, ( Processor and Ram Memory)

GPU = Graphics Processing Unit, the graphics card's processor,

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

Doesn't matter if you use a graphics card, that has GDDR3, or GDDR4, or GDDR5, graphics ram memory.

I do however, recommend using a PCI Express graphics card based on the 2.0 technology. (PCI Express 2.0), and NOT the PCI Express 2.1 technology.

Could have problems.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

{ ALSO;
Make SURE you,
1) Windows running on the computer, install the graphics card's Installation Disk. (CD disk)

AFTER loading the graphics card's 'Control Panel', and drivers,
DO NOT RESTART.

Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen. Shut the computer down normally.

THEN unplug from power, AND follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Physically install the graphics card. Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Close the computer case.

Plug the computer into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

IF you do not, you stand the chance of driver conflict.
To explain;

When a device (Such as this graphics card), is installed on a computer, Windows 'break it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up one of it's
THOUSANDS of generic, one size fits all, drivers.

This = NO.
Could cause a driver conflict.

Windows: " Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?"

[ If you install the graphics card FIRST, THE drivers are NOT there.
Then you go back, and do install the drivers, there may be a driver conflict ]

Drivers:
Small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Some O/S examples are Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
The graphics card is an example of a device.

[ When you put the Installation Disk in the optical drive's tray, and close it, the graphics card's software will come up. Go for the option with the 'Control Panel', AND drivers.

Example; For an ATI Radeon graphics card, the 'Control Panel' is ATI Cataylst Control Center ]

L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

Lost install cd


The reason your computer doesn't recognize the adapter is because you don't have the drivers that come with the CD.

So, in order for you to get this working, click HERE

Then, download the driver by saving it to your disk. If you don't have internet access on that computer, you can download those files to a flash drive, or burn them to a CD. Whichever you prefer.

Good Luck :)

Acer 5710g . no pci flash memory installation driver


Go to the acer drivers and download page via their website. Choose your make and model p.c with the OS thats installed (XP, Vista, etc). Download the cardbus driver. Unzip the file to a folder on your p.c. Choose the driver from that folder to update for each of the 3 PCI flash slots. This will fix your issue.

Resored my computer lost all my acer drivers


you'll need the drivers cd that came with your acer, or another computer and a flash drive.

run the drivers cd or:

go to acer.com on other computer and look in the downloads and support for your computer.

download the ethernet and/or wireless drivers onto the flash drive. put the flash drive in your comp and install those drivers.

restart your comp and you should have internet capabilities.

go to acer.com and download the remaining drivers.

if acer doesn't seem to have the drivers anymore, then search google for "Acer (your computer's model number) drivers"

Hope this helps.

Trouble with installing software for PCI FLASH Memory Dell All-in-one


Put the cd in the computer, and see if there is a setup.exe file, or something of the sort on the CD itself.

Also, you can download the drivers from dells website. Your install cd may be bad. Your computer may also need to be updated, sometimes you need to log into http://www.update.microsoft.com/
and there may be drivers for it there on the bottom of a custom update.

If you tell the wizard to find the drivers automatically, it sometimes only looks for it on the hard drive of your pc. Tell it to install the drivers from a specific location, then select "from a removable medium". You can also try installing it from a specific location, click browse, and try to find the location of the drivers on the Dell installation cd.
