Why do you need to use another firewire card? The firewire port located on the right of the machine between the card reader and USB ports should work fine with most devices. I use mine frequently with a Sony Firewire camcorder and have never had a problem.

Hi John,

The Acer Aspire 3502WLCi does not has the ability to use any PCI which can be compatible with Firewire IEEE 1394.

The model was designed not to support such type.

Suhail

I need a firewire card for my Aspire 4315. How do I know which one to get and how do I install it?


You have 2 options, A usb firewire card, or an Express card firewire card.
You have an express card 54 slot (there are 54 and 34 types)
The express card is a good option as most of the card is pushed into your laptop, and therefore is less prone to getting knocked. Here are a couple of examples http://www.usbnow.co.uk/p383/2_Port_Firewire_(i.Link)_Express_Card/product_info.html

Solution for HP dv6000 wireless problem. Fix it yourself.
Hi...
I am from Costa Rica and my hp dv6000 had a wireless problem just like everybody.
Because I am in Costa Rica, the HP FEDEX service for repair, does not apply for me.

This is the solution that worked for me.
Difficulty: easy for skilled people, medium for inexperienced people.
It is not risky but be common-sense careful.
1- Unplug the Power cable and take off the battery.
2- Unscrew the memory cover. It is the one placed in the middle (2 screws).
3- You will see the memory, the bios backup battery and the wireless card (the one that has 2 cables plugged: one white and the other black, those are the wireless antenna).
4- Carefully unplug the backup battery. Small coin-like battery with a white plug.
5- Carefully unscrew the wireless card and remove it from the card slot.
6- Unplug the antenna cables.
7- Wait 5 minutes.
8- Plug the power cable and turn on the computer. Then wait for the screen to ask you something and choose the F1 option by pressing it.
9- Wait for windows to load and shut down the computer. Unplug the power cable.
10- Now plug back the battery and the wireless card. No need to explain how.
11- Put covers back and screw, of course.
12- Turn on your computer and verify the wireless switch is on the on position, otherwise turn it on when Windows is already loaded. The blue light should be on. If not, go to Control Panel, Device manager and check that your wireless adaptor is present and drivers are properly installed.
13- Your wireless must be alive and functioning.
14- If wireless not present, then it did not work, if it is present but have some problems, reinstall wireless card drivers and do what it should be done when updating drivers. That is a different problem.

That’s it. However if you want to know some important details, read the following.

-I tested my HP dv6000 wireless card on an Acer pc that is compatible with the wireless card.
-I try to test back the HP dv6000 pc using the Acer PC wireless card and the HP system said WIRELESS CARD NO COMPATIBLE CHANGE IT.
-The only one way to reset BIOS is by unplugging the backup (BIOS) battery as explained above.
-People generally try to fix it by recovering the original pre installed system, but it would fail must of the times.
-It is possible that the Wireless adaptor is defective; in that case none of the steps above will work.

Hope it worked for you...

I want to connect my HP pavilion notebook dv1000 by firewire


You should be able to get a firewire card to fit you computer. A standard pc card should fit a HP. There are two separate kinds of PC cards. There are the standard and the express versions. Make sure you get the standard version, because express is mostly for Dell. You may want to go to HP and confirm this by looking at the support section for your computer. As far as what type of firewire card, get what you think you will need. There isn't much difference between different brands.

There is option in BIOS called something about automated SATA recognition or similar - disable it. It is under System configuration. And if you are putting new drive in then run full test from BIOS (Hard drive selftest - takes about 79min.)
I tried to reinstall Windows Media center on my HP dv6000 because my previous hdd crashed - When I put in installation cd - it said that it can't find hdd. I spent week to figuring that out. The thing is - as far as you haven't disabled that SATA thing in BIOS - PC doesn't recognize hdd. But only with Windows media center edition. With all other windows xp - there is no such problems. Strange.
