Shut down the computer. Unplug machine Disconnect all peripherals from the computer. Remove the cover of the chassis and lay computer on its side if it is a tower. Remove the back panel, if necessary. Locate the existing sound card if there is one already installed. If it is screwed in on the side of the slot hole, unscrew it and pull the card out firmly. 8If the computer doesn't already have a sound card, find an open slot. 9Knock out or unscrew the metal plate on the card's slot holder on the back panel. Step10Insert the sound card gently but firmly into the slot. Rock it into position if necessary, but don't force it. Don't touch any connectors on the card. Step11Connect cables from the CD-ROM drive to the sound card. Step12Replace the back panel and any removed screws. Screw sound card into slot holder if it has a screw hole. Step13Reconnect monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Connect speakers to the sound card's ports. Step14Turn on the speakers and restart the computer. Step15If Windows detects the sound card upon startup, follow instructions to install the card's driver and additional software. If Windows doesn't detect sound card, manually complete the installation using the Add New Hardware control panel. Step16Play music CD to test sound card. Step17Shut down computer. Step18Replace cover of computer. Reboot computer.

I actually have the 512mb graphics card but my question is how do i install graphics drivers when the installation disc wont even do a complete install?


unplug power cod, open computer Cabinet panel, remove cmos for 2 min and reinsert cmos,
wipe graphics card socket, reinsert graphics card, TURN on computer, press f2 to load default setting
you do not need to disable onboard graphics. in bios, some bios default configure your graphics card to primary

hope will help you

I am currently using a wireless 'dongle' to connect to the internet but I feel that it would probably give me a more stable connection if I had a wireless card. Can anyone give me details of


Hi Lynda,
The best option for you would be to purchase a wireless PCI network card.
They are relatively inexpensive and should have a stronger signal over a longer distance than a wireless USB dongle.
Below is a typical wireless network card and it should be freely available from your local PC store


1_24_2012_10_00_56_pm.jpg
I have included a brief explanation for your convenience:

A PCI wireless adapter card connects to a desktop computer's PCI bus. Because the PCI bus is contained inside the computer, the unit must be opened and the wireless network adapter installed inside.
An example of a PCI wireless adapter card, the Linksys WMP54G is shown above. This unit is more than 8 inches (200 mm) long in order to accommodate the standard connection strip required to electrically join to the bus. The unit attaches and fits snugly inside the PCI, although the wireless adapter card antenna protrudes out the back of the computer

Best wishes,

Hey, um, I have a Dell Demension 3000 and I want to replace the sound card on it. I have a couple of questions: 1. Can I just get any sound card? 2. I know I install it in the PCI slot, but where is that...


1. Almost all sound cards are standardized, and there are drivers for all major operating systems (windows, mac, and linux). After installing the card, you will need to install the correct driver to make it work, (on a pc, it is likely the driver will be installed automatically.

2. PCI slots look like this - http://www.google.com/search?q=pci+slot&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1440&bih=802 - They are all on the motherboard, and a few of them will already be in use. Your monitor cable port is part of a card in a pci slot and your network ports are part of a card connected to a pci slot.

3. All your software settings are stored on your hard drive, if you don't swap out the harddrive, then none of your settings will be lost.

My sound card on my desktop PC is not working


If it is on board sound then first check in bios that sound audio device is enable. For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALt+F2 to enter in bios then go to pci configuration and make sure audio is enable then save settings and exit. If it was already enable then make sure audio driver is installed and working fine. You can check it in device manager. Right click on my computer icon then click on property then click on hardware->device manager then you can see all drivers list then make sure audio driver is installed. If still same issue then uninstall audio driver from start menu->control panel->add remove programs then reinstall driver from disk. If you haven't driver disk then download audio driver from desktop menufecturer web sites then install then it will work fine. If you have sound card installed in PCI slot of cpu then open cpu cabinet then reconnect sound card in another pci slot on motherboard then reinstall audio driver then it will work fine. Also make sure there is not any loose connection on sound jack and speaker cable.Make sure in control panel sound property there are not any mute sound. Play song file in window media player and make sure sound is not mute on it. Then check. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Need new vid card


The Compaq s3200nx comes with integrated video; Via KM266 graphics. It has:
Available slotsTwo PCI
AGP4x 1.5v
AGP is for Video but nothing else and it must be 4v. PCI is for all types of cards including Video.

You can get a PCI Video card with more memory on it than your current video.
You must verify your monitor connection. Is it VGA? or DVI? Make sure the card has the right type of connection.

Motherboard Sound card problems k8v-mx


I've produced the link for the download, but firstly remove the audio driver and reboot before trying to reinstall the drivers. Make sure you have very little applications running in the background before trying this.

Pci express slot


Hi dineshcs.
When adding a new graphics card (Your's being a PCI-Express), you must change a bios setting under the title " Advanced " section. Open you're M2N-MX manual & turn to page 2-21. You need to change the boot order for you're graphics to list,
[PEG/PCI]. Change Initiate Graphic Mode Select to [Disable].
These changes stop the onboard graphics card from loading & allow the PCI-Express card to load. The issue of possible motherboard overheating can be caused by many things. Here is a list of things to check.
1). Check the CPU heat-sink fan. Make sure the fan blades are
free from dust build up. Check fan speed in bios (Its RPM will be listed). It should be running a min of 2300 RPM.
2). Also in the bios is Hardware monitor. By booting into the bios go to this & watch the temp of CPU & motherboard. If either is getting too hot suggest you add a side case 3" fan to the system to help lower the CPU & motherboard temp.

Good Luck!
