What video adapter card is compatible with Seagate ST3400620AS HDD


There are many things you need to consider before purchasing a new graphics card.
First you need to know what type of graphic card is compatible with your motherboard and how much space you have inside of the PC tower.

Since newer cards use a lot of power, it is also important to check your PCs power supply.
The simplest way to find out what type of graphic card is compatible to your motherboard is by looking at the expansion slot and power specifications in the motherboards manual.

Locate your motherboard's manual.
If you don't have one then open up your web browser and enter your motherboard or PC's manufacturer's website.


Go to the support page on the manufacturer's website and enter your motherboard's model number.


Download the motherboard's manual from the support page.
Look for the "expansion slot" section in the manual to check the motherboards expansion slot specifications.

If your motherboard uses a AGP expansion slot then write down the version (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), and the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x).

If your motherboard uses a PCI Express expansion slot then write down the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16).


Look for the "Power Supply" specifications in the manual and write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V,5V or 12V).

to find out information on your motherboard. Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model."

Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website.
If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website.


Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model.
Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications.


Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express."
If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x).

If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16).
Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply."

Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A").
Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance.


Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot.
AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa.


Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot.

Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard.


A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU.

Where can i buy a onchip usb2?


FIC FR33E motherboard?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/FIC-FR33E-L-MOTHERBOARD-CPU-LOT-10-/170633274365

Reference: Photo


To the far left side of the motherboard, is actually the Bottom of the motherboard, when installed in your computer case.

The two White long expansion slots you see, are PCI expansion slots.
If one is available, (Open), you can use a PCI USB adapter card.
This is but one example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4143850&CatId=511

Seem cheap? Nope. Good quality also. (You can also check the reviews)

Need guidance in installing?
1) Follow Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside the computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.

[Note* Always unplug the power to a computer AT the surge protector. NOT at the back of the computer. (Power Supply)
You can cause a power surge ]

2) TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

3) Finding an open PCI slot look at the back of the computer. In the metal frame you will see slots going horizontally.
These are Expansion Slots.

You may have an add-on adapter card already installed, in one of the PCI slots.
The expansion slot cover for it is removed.

You should see expansion slot covers however, in the remaining expansion slots on the back of the computer metal framework.
Remove the one that corresponds with the PCI slot you wish to use.

Be aware that the PCI slot will not be directly in line, with the expansion slot.
When installing an add-on adapter card, you will see when the card is inserted in the PCI slot, the metal bracket on the add-on card, lines up with an adjacent expansion slot.

This will make more sense to you once you go to install the card.

[PCI USB adapter card is an add-on adapter card ]

Line the card up in the PCI slot. Note that there is a Locating Lug in the PCI slot, and a matching Locating Notch, on the PCI USB adapter card.

Also, at the same time line up the metal bracket of the PCI USB adapter card, with the metal framework of the computer case at the back.

Gently push the PCI USB adapter card down into the PCI slot.
Fasten the card's metal bracket to the computer's metal framework.

Post the computer manufacturer name, and model number, if you need guidance in opening the computer case. Post in a Comment.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Is there always a free slot for a video card on motherboards that have integrated video cards


Most motherboards have expansion slots, you need to identify the type of expansion slots that are installed eg. PCI. AGP etc.
If your motherboard has an AGP slot (this slot is for graphics card) then purchase an AGP graphics card.
You may need to disable the on-board graphics card in the BIOS setup.

Hello! my problem is that my two USB ports is blown. Now I want to connect more USB port on the motherboard via cable, but none matches the port that the USB or sb_link, jp1... Can you tell me which port...


You will need to get a usb expansion card. These can be found at Best Buy, Newegg.com, tigerdirect.com, pc-connection.com etc...

Some manufactures ship with newer motherboards a usb expansion slot using the motherboard jumper configuration but your motherboard must first be able to support this type of expansion.

I recommend the pci usb expansion. They plug into your PCI slot and give you 2-4 extra USB slots in the back of your computer.

Hi i have ms 6714 mother board how to know its 040 or 020


1) The Micro Star International MS-6714-020 motherboard uses an Intel 845GV motherboard chipset.

Underneath the Heatsink on the Northbridge chip is the part number Intel 82845GV.
On the Southbridge chip the part number is Intel 82801DB. (ICH4)


2) The MSI MS-6714-040 motherboard use an Intel 845GE motherboard chipset.

Underneath the aluminum ribbed Heatsink on the Northbridge chipset is the part number Intel 82845GE.
On the Southbridge chip the part number is Intel 82801DB. (ICH4)

List of Intel Chipsets, and specifically the one's for the Pentium 4's,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

How to know the difference without knowing what part number is on the Northbridge chip?
Easy.

The Intel 845GE supports Integrated Graphics, and AGP (AGP 4X)

There is an AGP expansion slot on the motherboard for using an AGP graphics card.

The Intel 845GV supports Integrated Graphics only.

There is No AGP expansion slot.
Just the three white PCI expansion slots.

Can you elaborate the functions of this product....


NOTE*
The following applies to motherboards such as an AsRock K7S41GX.
It does NOT apply to motherboards supporting the Intel Core i3, i5, i7, and i9 processors.

1) Motherboard diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

A) CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
The 'Brain' of the computer.

B) Front Side Bus. Also abbreviated as FSB.
The FSB is the 'Information Highway' between the Processor, and the Northbridge chip.

[Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit ]

C) The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
It is named NORTHbridge, because on the orientation of the motherboard, it is to the North of the motherboard.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.


D) The Northbridge handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.
AGP and PCI Express are high speed graphic technologies.

A graphics card used in a PCI expansion slot, and Integrated Graphics are NOT high speed graphics.


E) The Southbridge handles Integrated Graphics, (OnBoard graphics. Same/same), and the PCI bus.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI expansion slot is one example of Southbridge support.

Any add-in card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, is in the PCI bus.
Therefore handled by the Southbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip also handles IDE (PATA), and SATA harddrives.
Handles USB ports, Ethernet port/s, audio, and the CMOS memory.

F) The Internal Bus is the 'Information Highway' between the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

G) The LPC Bus is the 'Information Highway' between the Southbridge chip, and the Super I/O chipset.
The LPC Bus is also the 'Information Highway' between the Southbridge chip, and the BIOS chipset.

H) The Super I/O chipset handles,
Serial port
Parallel port
Floppy Disk Drive
Keyboard
Mouse


2) http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=K7S41GX

The AsRock K7S41GX has;

A) Socket A processor socket. Also known as Socket 462

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

Can use AMD processors that fit in a Socket A processor socket, and have either a 200MegaHertz, 266MHz, or 333MHz FSB.

Here is the CPU Support List,

http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=K7S41GX

Do you have a manual for a canada ices class b mother board


Canada ICES (Industry Canada Interference Causing Equipment Standard), is as the full name for the ICES abbreviation shows, a standard in Canada. What is not stated by the abbreviated title, is that it's a standard for EMC, and the unwanted interference of radio communications, that can be caused by EMC. ElectroMagnetic Compatibility..

Article entailing EMC on Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_compatibility

From the Wikipedia article; "Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the branch of electrical sciences which studies the unintentional generation, propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy with reference to the unwanted
effects (Electromagnetic interference, or EMI) that such energy may induce. " Some electronic equipment produces EMI. ElectroMagnetic Inteference. Personal computers, are a digital electronic device, which Does produce EMI. However due to standards set by regulatory agencies, the EMI is kept down to an acceptable level. (FCC for United States. Federal Communications Commission)

Here you can see the different classifications set by Canada ICES, and the Class A, and B designation, http://www.i-spec.com/EMC/canada.html For a motherboard made in the USA, the classification N1996, is a Radio Frequency Interference classification, quite like the ICES-003 standard.

Point? The classification has nothing to do with identifying what motherboard manufacturer made your motherboard. Let me give you some information I have gleaned over the years from experience, and what others have gleaned, and stated on the internet.

1st) Look in-between the Expansion slots for a manufacturer code. Generally a Model Number. To wit; A) ISA expansion slot (Generally Black in color) B) PCI expansion slot (White in color) C) AGP expansion slot D) PCI Express expansion slot.

More information on Expansion Slot, and information leading to the above stated types of expansion slots, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expansion_card I invite you to scroll down to the heading - Expansion Slot Standards, and left-click on each type stated.

This photo of a typical motherboard, shows a PCI expansion slot, (2 each. White in color), and a PCI Express expansion slot (1 each, and in this case a PCI Express x16. Black in color ) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Asus_a8n_VMCSM02.jpg (You can left-click on the photo to enlarge it)

Looking in-between the black PCI Express x16 expansion slot, and the white PCI expansion slot, you will see ASUS. It is upside down in the photo. Motherboard manufacturer of this motherboard is Asus. Looking to the right of the blue Ram Memory slot 1, you will see Asus's motherboard manufacturer Model Number, for this motherboard, A8N -VM CSM REV 1.10G stands for Revision 1.10G Asus's code for how many times the motherboard design, has been revised.

Sometimes, the motherboard manufacturer model number, is printed on the motherboard right out in the middle. Sometimes along one edge. Sometimes NOT at all. Older motherboards made by certain motherboard manufacturers, were not proud to state their name on the motherboard, nor a Model Number. Reasoning is rumored, that these particular motherboard manufacturers, stole certain designs implemented by other motherboard manufacturers, (Usually top of the line manufacturers),. and used it on their motherboards. Most of those motherboard manufacturers are not in business today.

Here is more information on identifying your motherboard, http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/How-to-Find-Out-Your-Motherboard-Manufacturer-and-Model/236 IF, the motherboard is installed in a working computer, you may be able to use CPU-Z from CPUID.com, (Free, but they do accept donations), and find out who is the motherboard manufacturer. I state MAY, because there is a possibility that not all motherboard manufactures may be on record for CPU-Z. There ARE a LOT of motherboard manufacturers who are, However. Some of the main information that CPU-Z states, is the Motherboard Chipset. Armed with this info you can find out what, A) Processors can be used B) Ram Memory C) Graphics Cards Information on CPU-Z on Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z (You can left-click on the CPU-Z GUI at the upper right, to enlarge it. GUI = Graphics User Interface) IF, the motherboard is Not installed in a working computer, working together, and looking for the motherboard chipset used, together we can derive needed information. [Motherboard Chipset; For one, Chip, and Chipset are slang terms used to denote I.C. Integrated Circuit. The Motherboard 'Chipset' is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip. (Unless, it is the new technology used on motherboards for the Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors)

The eMachines W3400 desktop computer has an MSI MS-7145 motherboard.
(MSI = Micro Star International, Inc)

This is the MSI MS-7145 motherboard,

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket754/msi7145.shtml

The MSI MS-7145 motherboard, has one PCI Express x16 expansion slot, which is used for a graphics card.

Viewing the bottom left of the photo, you will see three white PCI slots.

Right above them is a longer white slot.
This is a PCI Express x16, expansion slot.

Scrolling down to the subheading - Expansion Slots,
You will see - One PCI Express 16x slot, listed.

Should you require information in installing a PCI Express graphics card, or information on which PCI Express graphics card may fit your needs, state so in a Comment.
