Have brought a wireless card to go inside the laptop. Just not sure where it goes inside! There is a power supply cable and a long slot, but this is a tiny card and is far smaller than the slot, can it still go in there? Medion MIM2080

Must admit I am not familiar with this brand and a bit of googling suggests that this model already has built in wireless. However, some forum postings suggested that it in fact doesn't and that the required mini wireless card (which may be what you have bought) connects to the mainboard via a removable cover on the underside of the laptop.

Never come across that before - I have always had PCMCIA wireless cards which are about the size of a fat credit card, and fit in the slot I think you are describing. Sorry, not much to go on. I suggest that you ask Medion Support:

How to put a video card in hp p6142p ?


You need to make sure the video card you are putting in meets the requirements of the power supply other wise you will burn the power supply out. If you are upgrading to a better one, then you will have to change the power supply out because that computer comes with a low end 300 watt power supply. Also this computer has a PCI express x16 slot so you will want to make sure this card fits this slot, however, this is a common slot. This video should help you as well.

What is the sqare chuck , wires two black and two white wires on the motherboard ?


Boy, ya got me.

If it was a small square opaque white socket on the motherboard, that a power cable from the Power Supply; had two YELLOW wires, and two Black wires, and plugged into it, I would know what it is,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

As technology for personal computers advanced, hardware components needed more power.
The motherboard wasn't able to deliver the power needed, so the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, was brought out.

More power was needed later.
Hardware components demanded more power, than a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable could deliver.

So the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable was brought out,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps8

It CONNECTS to the motherboard. (For motherboards that use one)
NOT to be confused with the 8-pin PCI Express power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

This power cable plugs into a GRAPHICS CARD, not the motherboard. Note the color code of the wires.

For a PCI Express expansion slot on the motherboard, for a graphics card; the best the PCI Express slot can deliver is 75 Watts.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable was brought out next,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

It is plugged into the graphics card too, and can deliver up to an additional 75 Watts.
Now there is 150 Watts available for the graphics card.

Computer technology advanced, and the 6-pin PCI Express power cable, couldn't deliver the power needed.

Now comes the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.

The 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable by itself, can deliver up to an additional 150 Watts.

Now there is 225 Watts available for a graphics card.
75 Watts from the motherboard, 150 Watts from the 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable.

Color code of wires;
1) Orange = 3.3 Volts
2) Red = 5 Volts
3) Yellow = 12 Volts
ALL are DC Voltage

(Two flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

4) Black wires are Ground wires. Also are known as Negative wires.


This motherboard happen to have a manufacturer name, and Model Number?

Can't find it?
How about the computer manufacturer name, and model number, it came out of?

The model number for a desktop computer, is on the back of the computer, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.

(The plastic front of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
Some older computers had a Door in the Front Panel.
The door is opened, and you look inside -> Down, for the model number)

Post back in a Comment.

Wireless antenna or wireless router


Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.

You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem.
If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router.
If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.

Suddenly network card stopped work. can't connect internet


Try This: Unplug the power to the DSL Router for 20 seconds then plug it back up. Remove the power cord and battery from the laptop, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Turn the laptop over and look for the screw on the Wireless Card Cover. Remove the screw and the cover (it may be a number of screws depending you your system) then unplug the antenna cables to the wireless card (normally a black and white or black and gray cable). Remember which cable goes where before you remove them. Remove the screw that holds the wireless card in the slot, then remove it. Put the Wireless card back in the slot and secure it with a screw. Put the antennas back on the wireless card and then the cover. Put the battery back in, plug in the power cord and reboot.

If the system still does not find your wifi card, the card might be bad.

*** Sometimes the wireless card will be under the keyboard or palmrest instead of the bottom of the computer.

I dont know where the too cables from sreen connects with the motherboard


The Screen for your laptop brings one cable which connects the video and another which connects the wireless antenna for your wireless card, the wireless goes around and underneath the motherboard. The Screen cable goes either on the left or right on the top corner of the motherboard. Be careful and make sure no power is going to the motherboard as you're doing this, or not you could cause serious problems to your screen or motherboard, and always make sure you don't have static which could also damage your motherboard. Hope this helps, best of luck

Remove the card and install again making sure it goes all the way in..( and/or installing on another slot.. Make sure theres no hair or dust goes in the slot.. If problem persist, 1. You probably need to access bios n configure/enable the pci ports.. 2. The power supply is insufficient.

Hmmm.... mainly you have:
-20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components)
-4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU
-the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)
