Did you check to make sure the card is seated correctly? Try removing and reseating and make sure the card is level and firmly inserted in the slot and repeat the driver installation.

Can't get the metal tab off the back to install a firewire port

I'm going to assume you are trying to install a Firewire adapter card.

They make Firewire adapter cards that fit a long white PCI slot, on the motherboard,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3264905&CatId=511

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

,and a Firewire adapter card that fits a PCI-Express x1 slot,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4624358&CatId=510

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

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

[NOTE* Color of connector does NOT matter. Blue, Black, Pink with Yellow polka dots............doesn't matter ]

Do I assume you have the PCI-Express x1 version, and there is no PCI-Express x1 slot on the motherboard?

You are also having problems opening the cover, that keeps the brackets of add-on expansion cards in place.

How about posting the Model Number of the Gateway Desktop PC?
This is found on the back of the desktop computer, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

Post back in a Comment.

I will look to see how to open that cover, and what expansion slots you have on your motherboard. Then post back in a Comment.

Replace wireless card


Computer components have become more reliable than ever. Although many parts are now integrated onto the motherboard, it may become necessary to add or replace a sound, video, or network card due to component failure or the need for improvement. Integrated components can be left in place, and the problem solved by installing a second card into an available PCI slot. If a component such as a network card fails it can be replaced easily and inexpensively.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source. Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards Turn off the computer and inspect the case. Remove the screws that hold on the removable side access panel. Remove the panel and lay the computer on the other side. Locate the network card. Inspect the rear of the computer to locate the network port. If it is a PCI-style card it will be the card with the single connection port on the rear face of the card. If it is a fixed part of the motherboard it will be located near the connectors for the mouse, keyboard, and USB ports. If it's a PCI card, remove the retaining screw and remove the card. Remove the PCI network card if present. Leave the case open and stand the computer back upright. Connect a keyboard, mouse, and monitor and restart it. Open the new network card and remove the installation CD. Insert the CD in the computer and follow the installation instructions. Shut the computer down again after the installation is finished. Lay the computer back down. Install the new network card in any available PCI slot. Replace the case and stand the computer back up. Hook up the keyboard, mouse, monitor, and a network connection. Restart the computer. Accept the default installation settings when the Windows Found New Hardware Wizard launches. Select No on the screen asking you to check for drivers online if it appears. The wizard should continue and find the newly installed drivers. Complete the Found New Hardware Wizard. Reboot the computer even if it does not ask you to. Open Internet Explorer, Firefox, or your favorite browser once the computer is running again. Ensure connectivity by trying several different websites. Hope this helps.

How can I add firewire to my HP s5730f slimline when the pci express slots are blocked? Is there a pci card I can use to add firewire?


Hi, yes, you should be able to add a firewire card that goes into a spare PCI slot inside your computer. I have provided some links for you to have a look at.

http://www.ebuyer.com/store/Peripherals/cat/USB-----Firewire-----I---O-&-HBA/subcat/Firewire-IEEE--1394-Cards

When you say your pci express slots are blocked, do you mean that you have a card, likely a video card, already installed in your pci express slot? You should have available pci slots anyway and you can purchase a fireward card and install it yourself. If you are unsure about this then you can do a search on youtube as there are lots of how to videos on there regarding this type of installation. Good luck. Andrew

Firewire PCI card not recognized


Hello,

Sometimes, when one is inserting a card, one does not push it firmly in place. If some contacts are not well established, the card may not be recognized.

Hope it helps.

Jvc problem


I think you can by using the firewire cable, connect it to the the slot indicated by i (for iLink) DV on the camcorder and connect it ot the computer firwire port. A firewire slot is available if a Firewire card is isntalled on your computer. I am in the process of installing a Firewire Card (starting from $15.00 and upwards) hopefully everything works out.
