Re: open box

If you have the user manual that came with the PC look for instructions on how to open the case. If that does not work, try contacting the tech support at the following link:

They may be able to provide instructions via email or free chat session.
If that does not work, try looking for screws on the back or some type of lever or slide that would open the case. Some cases are constructed so that both sides and the top are all one piece and it either slides backwards or frontwards. Some cases are constructed so that you only have to take off the side panels. You can usually tell the difference by looking for a separation between the top and the side panel.

Hope this helps!

How to remove exterior card cover so i can install a new card

Dear William,
Best practise: wear an anti-staic wrist-band! Leave machine plugged in to power but make sure that power is switched OFF at wall - (this will ensure that the machine is safely 'earthed'. . Open box cover - there are usually release button(s) to do this. Once computer box is open, connect anti-static wrist-band alligator clip to bare frame. The PCI-card covers are usually attached by one screw/nut: UNDO. Remove slot-cover. Insert new card into PCI-slot. Make sure it is home & replace locking screw. Remove anti-static clip. Close box. Power-up & let Windows find/install new device. I hope that this helps - 'b'ye - Bruce.

Computere not recognizing when an ethernet cord is plugged in

Check and make sure the Network Card isn't disabled in Windows.
XP - Vista/7
If there are no lights on the NIC when you plug the cable in, then it's either a bad connection or a bad cable. Test it to a different computer if you have one.

If this helps please give a positive rating.

I have a Dell XPS400 and can not connect to the internet because the machine does not have any installed network adapters. I have always had internet access...where do I find this adapter if I can't get...

This is onr example of a Network adapter, or also know as an Ethernet Adapter Card,

This is Dell Support >XPS 400 desktop computer > Service Manual,

1) Work on a table. Computer off, and unplugged from power, open the computer case.

(Removing the Computer Cover, in the list)

2) Follow Anti-Static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components, inside a computer.

To relieve your body of Static, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be sure to Touch the metal frame again ]

3) View the motherboard inside your computer.
(The motherboard is also referred to as the Mainboard, {Proper speak}, and System Board)

Technical Overview > System Board Components,

Viewing the illustration of the motherboard, the Ethernet Adapter Card example I gave above, would go in either one of the PCI expansion slots.

These are white in color, and in the illustration are labeled - PCI Card Connectors.

If there is already an adapter card installed in both PCI expansion slots, then see if the PCI Express x1 expansion slot is open.

In reality, PCI Express is a better technology than PCI.

Shown on the motherboard as PCI Express x1 Card Connector.

This is an example of an Ethernet Card, (Ethernet Adapter Card), that uses the PCI Express x1 expansion slot,

The reason I have suggested buying, and installing an Ethernet Adapter Card is threefold.

1) You may have your Ethernet cable plugged into the Ethernet port of the computer,

[Number 3 - Network Connector],

and the built-in Ethernet is no good.
Reinstalling drivers May help, but the above is a sure thing.

2) You have an Ethernet Adapter Card plugged into one of the PCI slots, or the PCI Express x1 slot, and the Ethernet adapter card is no good.
They do go bad, and are economical to replace.

3) There was an Ethernet Adapter Card installed previously, but taken out before you received the computer.

Time warndr says slow connection caused by faulty network card. OEM card part of motherboard. What do I need to buy?

Your motherboard in this PC has two PCI cards, and one PCI express card. You may have one of these free to install an Ethernet card. If the PCI express slot is open, it is your first choice. The ethernet cards are labeled PCIe. There are many brands to choose from. Your system is using an Intel based LAN card.
Tiger Direct sells a PCIe Ethernet card for $49 made by DLink and a Trendnet PCI card for as little as 7.99. I have used both brands and they work well. The PCIe is faster.

I have an old emachine it has a regular phone connection and i want to update it to ethernet connection can you help me?

This is a PCI Network Card. It plugs into a PCI expansion slot on your computer. You will need to install the drivers for this network card to work properly.

How to install a network card Some newer computers come with network interfaces built in - your machine carefully for a socket that looks like a large telephone socket with a network_symbol.jpg next to it. These are sometimes hidden behind a flap or on the corner of your laptop next to the modem socket.
If you haven't got a network interface already on your machine you will have to install a network interface card. These are available to buy from the IT Service Desk.
  • USB Adaptors simply plug into a USB port.
  • PCMCIA Cards for laptops slot in a free PCMCIA slot on the side of your machine.
  • PCI Cards are a bit more fiddly and require you to open up your machine.
  • We advise that you use a USB adaptor for ease of installation
Instructions on how to fit a PCI network interface card.
  1. Shut down Windows and then turn the computer off and unplug it. Never work in your computer's insides with the power on or the power cord plugged in!
  2. Remove the cover from your computer. There are normally a number of screws on the outside of the case to remove. Put the screws someplace where they won't wander off.
  3. Find an unused expansion slot inside the computer. The expansion slots are lined up in a neat row near the back of the computer. All new computers have at least three or four slots known as PCI slots.
  4. Many older computers also have several slots known as ISA slots. You can distinguish ISA slots from PCI slots by noting the size of the slots. PCI slots are smaller than ISA slots, so you can't accidentally insert a PCI card in an ISA slot or vice versa. Figure 2 shows the different types of slots. PCI slots are white, ISA slots are black
  5. When you find the right type of slot that doesn't have a card in it, remove the metal backplate from the back of the computer's chassis. A small retaining screw holds the backplate in place. Remove the screw, pull the backplate out, keep it in a safe place in case you ever want to remove the network card.
  6. Insert the network card into the slot. Line up the connectors on the bottom of the card with the connectors in the expansion slot, and then press the card straight down. Sometimes you have to press uncomfortably hard to get the card to slide into the slot.
  7. Ignored the little cable that came with the card, you can chuck this in the bin. It is a Wake-On-LAN connector and isn't required for your card to work.
  8. Secure the network card with the screw that you removed in Step 4.
  9. Put the computer's case back together. Watch out for the loose cables inside the computer; you don't want to pinch them with the case as you slide it back on. Secure the case with the screws that you removed in Step 2.
  10. Turn the computer back on.

Network card

Any PCI network card should work your machine. When you go to buy one, just look for PCI on the box and wireless if need be.
