    Hi, how old of a computer are we talking? Are you familiar with computer hardware in general? Generally speaking, a given card will only fit in it's corresponding slot in the correct direction, and most cords and other items are the same way.

I want a graphics card for 81845GVM-RZ motherboard......please help me


Hi,
Your motherboard is old one.
For adding the new graphics card you need to have the PCI Express x16 slot in motherboard
Your motherboard is not having this slot.
Buy a new motherboard.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I hook up my DSL modem to my old computer? I have an old PC (from the year 2000). I previously connected to the internet by using a laptop hooked up to the DSL; but the laptop died. Now I...


Since you indicate that the system is from 2000, if this is a desktop computer, you will probably want an Ethernet adapter card with a PCI interface. This is an example: http://www.microcenter.com/product/243519/32-bit_10-100-1000Mbps_Copper_Gigabit_PCI_Adapter?ob=1 .

Before you purchase any card, you need to check if the system has available slots for add-on cards. Make sure to open the case and look at the motherboard. If your desktop has one or more lines that are perpendicular to the back of the case and have some sort of removable cover on the case, then those are the slots you will need to identify. Some of the slot covers break off; others are secured by a screw. The screw will help hold the card in place.

Note: some systems have an adapter that positions some slots perpendicular to the motherboard. Most have these slots on the motherboard. Some of the smallest case formats use motherboards with only 1-2 slots for add-on devices. The slot may be occupied with another I/O device card (serial port, parallel port or video card). A video card slot from this era could be a PCI or AGP slot.

If you check and add a comment with the model number of the computer or the motherboard itself, I may be able to provide a list of the the available slots. It's even possible that I could find a diagram of the motherboard layout.

There are also USB ethernet adapters. However, these will run at the speed of your USB adapter. This is an example: http://www.microcenter.com/product/209572/Hi-Speed_USB_20_10-100Mbps_Fast_Ethernet_Adapter?ob=1 .

I hope this helps.

(I have added ethernet adapters to desktops. One was an older system that had no internet capabilities when new. The other was a system with a faulty network adapter on the motherboard. The hardest part was adding drivers for a system with a non-working optical disc drive. Not all cards come with driver disks, the systems couldn't reach the network until the driver was loaded. You may need to use another system to download the appropriate driver (library/friend's computer) or chose an adapter that comes with the driver disc in the packaging.)

the mother board is 17 years old and will not run the later ad on or plug in cards
The power supply problems can be corrected with a new power supply
discuss the matter with a computer repair shop as the unit can be upgrade for less than 1/2 the price of a new unit , be faster more reliable with a bigger ram capability
there are sshd hard drives that have no spinning disc so it never wears out and crashes
it never costs to just talk and get ideas and once you have the ideas you can always install it all your self

Looking for a manual and motherboard layout for a compaq presario 4090us 4000 seirs 900MHz duron processor


According to my sources a Compaq Presario 4090us is supposed to use an FIC AZ31 motherboard.
FIC = First International Computer, Inc.)

I don't have a motherboard manual available, but MAY have a motherboard layout.

Supporting Data:

Specifications from HP Support: (HP bought out Compaq)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00009310&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=92635

1) Processor:
AMD Duron 900
Maximum Frequency Rate: 900MegaHertz
Front Side Bus: (FSB) 200MHz
Voltage: 1.6 Volts (DC)
Wattage used at maximum capability: 36.5 Watts
Part Number: (Top of Processor case. Heatsink, and thermal paste removed)
D900AUT1B

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Duron_microprocessors#Duron_.22Spitfire.22_.28Model_3.2C_180_nm.29

2) Ram Memory:
Maximum Total Amount: 768MB
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot: 256MB
SDR Sdram at 100MHz (PC100)

[Note* SDR Sdram is Single Data Rate Sdram, ram memory. Misnomer of just naming it Sdram is incorrect. All ram memory from SDR up to DDR3, IS Sdram]

3) Harddrive: 30B IDE harddrive. Should be a Quantum Fireball LCT20. (Part Number: QM30000-LD-A)

4) Motherboard Chipset: Sources state that it's a VIA KT133 chipset.
[Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C., or Integrated Circuit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

As you can see in the chart reading across from KT133, this chipset supports AP graphics cards that are 4X. Same thing is stated in the specifications from HP Support.

5) The HP Support specifications also state that the mobo (MOtherBOard) has one Primary IDE header for an IDE harddrive, one Secondary IDE header for an IDE optical drive, and one IDE header for a Floppy Disk drive.

Motherboard layout for an FICAZ34 mobo, which I believe is the same, in an additional comment to follow.

It sounds like Windows might be loading a bad driver for your main PCI (assuming it's PCI) slot. Try plugging your monitor into the motherboard instead of the video card. Try re-installing your graphics card driver to the latest version, you can download these drivers through the company's website and looking for your video card's model. After re-installing the drivers, shut down your computer. Put your videocard in it's main slot and plug the monitor to it. This should do the trick.

Pinning layout for Micro Star WS 6330 motherboard


Hi Hunter45,
Download the manual from MSI, click on the link below.
MSI K7T Pro MS-6330
You'll need winrar or winzip to uncompress the manual & you'll find there are 5, *.pdf files rather than just one for the hole manual.
http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=K7T+Pro&table=download
File name: 6330-1.PDF will show the MB layout. Page 1-4.
You ca see the 2 USB pins to the left of JMDM1.

Open file 6330-2.pdf, page 2-22 for the pin layout for the MB USB's.

Good luck Hunter45!

Need user manual for E139761 intel motherboard.


Hello ganeshfulare;
I have your answer(I hope:). Using j10d10, place wires accordingly;
red goes to 1, black goes to 3(for power led)
green goes to 2, orange goes to 4, black goes to 13(for HDD led)
blue goes to 6, white goes to 5(for power switch).
I guess the colors may differ slightly, but thats how it is on mine and it works properly. I was wondering if you(or anyone out there knows what the other IDE port is for(next to the dimm slot)? I am in the process of putting this old thing back together and was just curious.

I don't know the parts of the motherboard.


What motherboard would you like to know the layout of? Although, many motherboards are different, most of them have the same basic parts. From back to front, you have the communication ports; (usually from top to bottom, varies by manufacturer)mouse/keyboard, usb 1.0/1.1/2.0(make and model dependant) serial, paralell, vga/monitor, then sound: midi, headphone/speaker out, line out, microphone in.
then on the board, processor, somewhere near it, cache, i/o chip, north bride chip, wich is responsable for memory(ram) access, ide(cd rom/ hard drive access) ports and power connector/s,
memory slots
then the south bridge chip witch controls isa port(old), pci slot, agp/pci-e slot (video card) along with the cmos battery, bios, and various other slots/connectors (such as fan, power button and so on) and chips, wich vary by manufacturer and model.
