USB 3.0 upgrade


You might need to upgrade you graphics card.

USB 3.0 is the newest connection port upgrade, arriving on the market in 2010.
The cable port connection is far superior to the USB 2.0 port, as it is able to transport up to 5 gbps (gigabits per second), instead of the previous version's max speed of 480 mbps (megabits per second).

However, most computers do not yet have this connection port installed, in which case you are left to upgrade your own computer system to the newer, faster connection method.

Turn off your computer, then disconnect all of the cables running into the computer.
Remove the Phillips screws from the back side of the computer.

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.

This unlocks the case, allowing you access to the interior of the system.
Slide open the computer case.

Inside the middle is a longer circuit board.
This is the motherboard of the computer.

On the back side of the motherboard, facing the rear of the computer, are PCI card slots.
These allow you to install additional hardware onto the computer.

Slide the USB 3.0 connection port into one of the open PCI card slots, then push down the plastic levers along each side of the slot to lock the card into place.

Close the computer cover, then tighten the Phillips screws and reattach the cables.
Power on the computer, then insert the driver installation CD into the disc drive of the computer.

Once the installation wizard loads, follow the prompts of the wizard to install the drivers.
Restart the computer once finished and the USB 3.0 connection ports are ready for use.

Compatible graphics cards for Gateway Computers

Just as a processor handles data and a sound card outputs sound, your computer's video card is responsible for processing graphics and displaying them on your monitor.

The video cards manufacturers build into computers typically have enough power for the average user, but it may be necessary to upgrade your video card for better performance in games or graphics heavy applications.

Understand which types of video cards are compatible with your Gateway computer and learn about all your options.
PCI Express Graphics Cards

Many newer Gateway computers have a Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Express slot in which you can add any PCI Express compatible video card.

These devices range from budget cards suitable for everyday tasks to high end models for gaming that cost hundreds of dollars.

AGP Graphics Cards

Older Gateway computers likely have an Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) slot for AGP compatible cards.

The AGP bus provides sufficient bandwidth for high performance graphics cards, but the technology is no longer in use and AGP cards are difficult to find.

PCI Video Cards

Nearly all Gateway computers should have at least one PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) slot regardless of age.

This slot has enough bandwidth to support a wide range of peripherals like sound cards and modems, but is not suitable for high end video cards.

You can find a number of low and mid-range cards for PCI slot computers, however.

USB Video Cards

USB video cards are also compatible with Gateway computers sporting USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports.

These external cards sit outside the computer and allow you to connect additional monitors to your system.

They are a good option for people who feel uncomfortable working inside computers.

Upgrade My Video Card on My Gateway Desktop

Gateway desktops are affordable computers, but they often do not come with top-of-the-line video cards.
Computer games may run slowly or not at all on your Gateway desktop.

One way to solve this problem is to upgrade the video card.
Video cards come in PCI, PCI-E and AGP interfaces, so you should be able to find a video card upgrade no matter what Gateway desktop model you have.

Click "Start" and right-click "My Computer."
Select "Properties" from the menu that appears.

Go to the "Hardware" tab.
Choose "Device Manager."

Click the plus sign next to the Device Manager entry listed "Display Adapters."
Find your graphics card in this list.

Double-click it.
Go to the "Drivers" tab and click "Uninstall Drivers."

Click "OK" to confirm the uninstallation process.
Shut your Gateway desktop down.

Pull the power cable out of the back.
Look at the back of the Gateway computer tower for screws on the right side panel or on top of the case for a cover release handle.

My dell dimension 4600 is not recognizing my ipod shuffle


Does it recognize any other usb device you stick in the port?

Try a different USB Port, maybe the one you are using is bad.

Do you get a message saying your device will run faster if it was connected to a 2.0 USB device?

If so you could try updating to a 2.0 usb device which goes into one of the PCI slots inside the computer for less than $15.

Click the link below to purchase a 2.0 PCI USB adapter. when the site opens just type: PCI to USB Adapter in the white search box at the top of the webpage and hit GO. Sort the results by Prices Low to High.

I use the one in the link below for computer repairs. It costs $9.99

My usb ports stopped working . i can;t download music to my ipod. i've tried all 6 of the usb ports with same resukts


Have you tried a different cable? If the cable is custom, sorry you will need to buy a new one to try it.
Plug in another USB device. Is this OK?
Do you use a USB Mouse? Try all the ports.
iPod cables are easily damaged. Ipod docks can be broken by force, twisting or dropping. Insert the iPod into the dock at the correct angle, gently.
Take care to insert the iPod cable straight, right side up. Do not drop the iPod with the cable inserted.
A foreign object like lint, dirt, paper or hair may be stuck in the connector. NEVER clean the connector with a metal object. Use a toothpick, carefully.

Damaged USB Port


Ok I think the best method to "Fix" this would be to get your self a 4 - 5 port USB card, they are, real cheap, insert it into a spare slot, inside your PC, and install the drivers, if any, and use that one. And simply ignore the other one all together.

Where is the port to hookup a epson stylus color 880


Generic comments:

Does your Epson use a parallel cable (25 or so pins - fat cable) or does it use a USB cable?

Does your Gateway have a Parallel port (very large "D" connecctor)? It certainly has a USB port, doesn't it?

You may have both. Which to use? Well a parallel cable will cost you about $25.00 and a USB cable (special for printers) will be about $10.00 - Price aside, I would be inclined to use the USB.

If you need drivers, visit WWW.epson.com/support search your printer and find your drivers.

May I recommend you visit www.pcpitstop.com and have them do a complete computer scan? I believe you will be pleased with the report they provide you on the status of your computer. Did I mention it is a free service?

You dont say what OS you are using.

USB Troubles


How To Refresh and reinstall USB Ports Of Your Computer Hello there, the other day i tried refreshing and reinstalling the USB ports on my PC, as some of my connecting devices are not recognized. I present the detailed procedure on refreshing the USB ports.
Let’s go!!

Here are the steps to refresh/reinstall/uninstalling the USB ports on the computer.

The USB port needs to be refreshed to make sure that no other device has captured the USB port of the computer. The Mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk; what ever it may be.

Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager Button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk...USB hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main USB devices at the rear end USB port. As they require more power to initiate.


The above steps are for XP operating system. When coming to the matter of Vista, please note the changes below:
===========================
1) Right-click Computer icon from the desktop , and then click Properties to open the System Properties window, and then select the Device Manager tab.

2) Click the Plus (+) sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers/Root hub.

3) Click the USB Composite Device entry to highlight it, and then click Remove. If a screen appears to confirm the deletion, confirm the deletion.

4) Disconnect the USB cable to the all-in-one, wait a couple seconds, and then reconnect the cable. This should restart Windows device detection (Plug and Play).

5) A New Hardware found screen may appear, click next through all of the screens that appear for the Wizard to install the USB Composite Device. Click Finish once the wizard completes.

Computer just quit reconizing my Canon Pixma IP 6600 Printer. Have tried new cable, reloading drivers, different USB Ports...Nothing seems to work


First impression is try to do an install on another computer.
uninstall unit from computer, delete completely all drivers and its printer software from computer. if VISTA OS make sure a VISTA driver is loaded for that unit.

if a fairly new unit, return too store, possible short.
