One of the newest drivers is http://tim.id.au/static/WN4201B.zip
If that is not new enough, there is a newer one in a damaged install package. I can point you to it if this driver is not new enough.

Im looking to upgrade my dc5000 sff graphic card and I wanted to know what kind of video card i need etc; pci, pci-express..... And if you have a product that could be used in this computer that would be...


Hi W Matt - Unfortunately your PC has only PCI slots available, no dedicated video slots like AGP or PCI-e.

You can get a PCI card with better/faster graphics than you have but the difference won't be dramatic.

If you want something to run Windows 7 in full graphics (Aero) mode and some games at medium settings I would recommend a card using the Nvidia 8400gs chipset. It's a fairly inexpensive card made by many manufacturers and won't put a strain on your systems small power supply.

You must remember that you need a PCI card that is also a low profile version.

I've created a search for what you need at Newegg (an online seller) and you can view the kind of card you need HERE.

Happy Computing!

Hi, I took an Accton wn4201b wifi pci card from a hp-z545 to use it on another desctop. The card was not recognized until I connected the fixing wholes to the ground. Then I was asked for the drivers which...


The WN4201B, for whatever reason, has few drivers available. It is a very old card, based on the ISL/PRISM chipset. A number of the drivers do not work correctly with WPA2, for example.
The most popular driver is at: http://tim.id.au/static/WN4201B.zip
You have to unzip it ans install it the "old fashioned" way.
Unzip to a directory, say c:\wn4201B
Open Drive Manager
Find the device.
Right click on it and say "Properties"
Select the DRIVER tab
Select UPDATE driver
Skip using Windows Update, the driver is not there.
Select "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install"
Click the Hove Disk button
Browse to where you have the downloaded driver.
Click OK
Then it should install.
Longer form instruction at http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ht/updatedriverxp.htm
There is also a newer driver I found which has a damaged INF but newer firmware and driver. I can provide that on request but it is trickier to install.

My wireless connection is not working on my inspiron,what should i do?


Cheapest steps first, getting more progressively expensive as the list progresses:

1) Upgrade the BIOS for the system, available at support.dell.com
2) Upgrade the chipset drivers to the latest version, same website.
3) Upgrade the wireless card drivers to the latest version, same website.
4) Re-set the wireless antennas. Usually you can access the WLAN mini-PCI card at the bottom of the systems. It will have two small wires connected to it, one white and one black wire.
5) Re-seat the wireless card. It's like a large RAM SO-DIMM chip, snap-in and out.
6) Perform a system restore (hopefully it doesn't come to that)
7) Re-install windows

More expensive:
8) Replace the WLAN card.
9) Replace the system board.

There is no Windows 7 driver for this card. The latest WIndows XP driver is from 2003, you can try that.

Upgrading graphics card


This is eMachines Support, and the specifications page for the eMachines C6535 desktop computer,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=C%20Series&model=C6535

Scroll down the list until you come to the Video heading.

You'll see - PCI Express (PCI-E x16) slot available

This means you have a PCI Express x16 graphics slot on the motherboard, and it is open, and available.

You can use a PCI Express graphics card.

Two things I would like to note.

1) You need to check the System Requirements of the PCI Express graphics card you're going to buy, and see if your System Resources are able to support it.

The main thing you need to look for here, is what power is required for the graphics card.

Does your Power Supply have the necessary Wattage?

Not only does your Power Supply have to be able to deliver the necessary power for the computer system resources (Processor, Ram Memory, etc), it also has to be able to deliver enough power for THAT graphics card.

Since eMachines Support doesn't list the power of the Power Supply, I searched online for a Power Supply replacement for the C6535.

Seems the C6535 comes with a 300 Watt power supply.
Problem is, back in the day the C6535 was made, power supply manufacturers were 'Fudging' the true maximum Wattage, that their power supply's were truly able to deliver.

A more realistic figure, is 70 percent of the maximum rated Wattage stated.
This would be 210 Watts.

Therefore, you're going to need a better power supply, to support any of the really decent PCI Express graphics cards out there.

2) PCI Express came out in 2004.
PCI Express is a technology.

The PCI Express technology has gone through three major changes, or upgrades, since it came out.

A) PCI Express 1.0 version
B) PCI Express 1.1 version
C) PCI Express 2.0 version

PCI Express graphics cards now, are made in the PCI Express 2.0 version.

You can use a PCI Express 2.0 graphics card in a computer with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Your computer uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

If you use a PCI Express 2.0 graphics card in a computer with PCI Express 1.1 technology, you won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.

Will you notice?
NO
We haven't begun to fully use all the bandwidth of the PCI Express 1.1 technology yet, much less PCI Express 2.0

(PCI Express 3.0 technology is just around the corner, and getting ready to be used on newer graphic cards. Marketing strategy)

Have any further questions concerning this, please post in a Comment.

Im out of video card, i got low memory, i dont know if video card are missing or graphics card.. im out of graphics everytime i played games..


You most likely need to upgrade your Video Card to a Card that has more RAM... Find out if *********** Board has AGP or PCI-Express slot, hopefully you don't just have PCI slots, but chances are if you are on a Desktop you can upgrade your Video Card.
