Question about eMachines Black ET1352G03w Desktop PC with AMD Athlon II X2 260u Processor Windows 7 Home Premium (884483537648)
THE TIP OF A 3.5 MM HEADPHONE PLUG BROKE OFF IN THE FRONT PLUG OF MY COMPUTER. I BOUGHT ANOTHER SOUND CARD & TRYING TO INSTALL IT BUT NOT SURE HOW IT FITS?
First, shut down the computer. Next, you will need to locate an unused expansion slot and then determine which type it is. Most newer PC's have "PCI" and "PCI express" slots (there are others). See the image below to help you identify the slots in your PC.
Choose a sound card that will fit one of these unused slots. Read the directions with the sound card. Some will have you install software first - others want the card installed first. Install the card into the slot and secure in slot with screw or clamp used by your PC and software in the order instructed.
You can also install a USB sound card instead of an internal type. This is required if you do not have an available slot or if you are not comfortable opening the PC. Most PCs with sound cards built into the motherboard will automatically be disabled when a second card is introduced to the computer - USB type or otherwise. If yours does not, you may have to disable it in the BIOS or physically remove to old sound card installed in one of the expansion slots.

Based on the computer you posted, you may have picked up a newer standard sound card (PCI Express x1) that will not fit in your PC. You'll need to pick up an old PCI sound card if any location nearby still carries those.
