    Are you talking about memory card or video card?

    IF it is memory card these are the cards used and the slot to insert

    Card Type Slot Insert

    Secure Digital™ left Label facing up

    MultiMediaCard™ left Label facing up

    SM (SmartMedia™) left Label facing down (gold contact area facing up)

    Memory Stick® left Label facing up

    Memory Stick PRO™ left Label facing up

    CompactFlash® right Label facing up

    IBM Microdrive™ right Label facing up

    Each slot is assigned a different drive letter (for example, the E: and F: drives) so data can be transferred from one media type to another.

    Inserting a memory card

    To avoid memory card damage or errors while using a media card,

    insert only one media card in a slot at a time.

    To use a memory card:

    1 Insert the memory card into the memory card slot as indicated in the previous table.

    2 To access a file on the memory card, click Start, then click My Computer. Double-click

    the drive letter (for example, the E: drive), then double-click the file name

    To remove a memory card:

    Wait for the media reader access indicator to stop blinking, then pull the media out of the slot.


    Do not remove the memory card or turn off the computer while the

    card reader access indicator is blinking. You could lose data. Also,

    remove the card from the reader before you turn off the computer.

    Do not use the remove hardware icon in the taskbar to remove

    the memory card. If you use the remove hardware icon, your

    computer will not recognize your memory card reader until you restart

    your computer

This particular model have AGP expansion slot located on motherboard, as this is rather obsolete computer, I am not sure if this is financially viable solution.

You will need phillips screwdriver.

To proceed with upgrade:

1. Switch off computer,
2. Remove power cord and monitor cord, if you want, you can disconect all remaining cords as well, but only if you are moving computer elsewhere.
3. Remove two thumbscrews holding left side (grill) panel, then slide it back and lift off
4. AGP slot is located below processor, just above white PCI slots, it is offset slightly towards front of the computer. If there is little screen mounted in first hole, remove it, depending how it is mounted by either, removing of the screw, or breaking it from the case.
5. Orient your card and insert it firmly in AGP slot, card should fit snuggly without bending or excessive force. Use screw to mount it to the back of the case frame.
6. Connect all cables, monitor cable to new installed video card, start your computer and check if there is display, if you have BIOS display, switch off computer, you installed your video card correctly.
7. Replace side moving it in reverse to removal, hung it first on the top and then slide forward, secure it back with thumbscrews.
8. Start back your computer
9. Install video drivers and setup your display to desired resolution.


If you need manuals and settings for this model, these are availbale at this acer site:

How to upgrade emachine t3302 for 2014 gaming

The cost of upgrading this machine for that purpose would be more than the cost of a new machine, and the results would be less than satisfactory. Also, if it is running XP, you need to move on to a supported (safer) machine.

What video card is compatible with a emachine t3302

It looks like any AGP card should work. Open the case and there should be 2-4 white expansion slots (PCI) and 1 brown one (AGP)

Since this is an outdated format you will likely have to find a used one. Any computer geek will have a drawer full. I know I do : )

I have an emachine T3302 and the screen is black help.

Emachines are not very reliable machines. Are you sure that the monitor settings are correct and that the chords arn't loose, otherwise you may have to get it repaired (good luck with their customer support) or replaced. Sorry.

Emachine model t3302 ethernet card

This is how the wireless world works. You buy a wireless router with a four port switch. Your DSL or cable connects to that. A cable called a Rj45 connects the DSL or cable to the back of the wireless router. You also buy a wireless network card for your PC. After running the software for the router & the wireless nic card including setting up a home network through windows your daughter will be able to connect that computer to your network from any room in the house. Below is a link to a wireless router:
You can connect up to four computers to the wirless router. A computer that does not connect to the router by a Rj45 must use a wireless network card. Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter Retail:
As you will see there is a big differance between a NIC card & a wireless card.
