Can you specify make and model of your notebook, and the make/model of your firewire card. It sounds like you might have gotten a PMCIA card and your laptop doesn't have that slot but I can not say for sure til I have all the information.
Thanks,
Lee

Describe your Nintendo Probleml logitech wireless keyboard lx310 does not link to wii system?


Wireless keyboards will only work with Wii of it has a 'USB Wireless Receiver' (also called a dongle) which plugs into the back of the Wii. So make sure that is plugged into the Wii USB port at the back.
Although the Wii uses bluetooth for the Wii Remotes, you cannot use bluetooth for keyboards.

ALSO... the Wii USB ports are only USB1 (Not USB2). Therefore some fancier keyboards may not work if they require USB2.

I insalled the software, but I can't get the videos from my camera onto my computer. When I put in the usb, it tells me it could perform faster in a different port but I've tried all my ports. I just want...


I think your PC is drawing attention to the difference between USB 1.1 and USB 2 ports, USB2 being much faster.

It wouldn't do this if you had USB2 ports on your PC.

Now working on the premise that your copying video tape to your PC rather than copying video files to your PC.

Other than rebuilding your PC or buying a new one will USB2 ports, you could

1) If its a laptop, use the firewire port. Just buy a firewire cable.
2) If its deskstop, buy a firewire PCI card (Not much, try ebay). You'll also need a firewire cable.
3) Carry on using the kit that you've already got, its just going to take a lot longer.

A final thought comes to mind, especially if the process is to copy tape to dvd.

I've have friends have no end of problems using these Dazzle and similar products in conjunction with a PC to make a DVD copy. The big issue being lip sync problems.

The way I prefer, and much more reliable is to daisy chain a

Camcorder/VHS recorder to a DVD recorder with a hard drive and finally a TV for monitoring.

Press play on the camcorder/VHS and record on the DVD player.

Once complete, edit on the DVD player and then write to DVD.

I installed the ATI x1650 but the monitor is blank when I turn on


Yes the card does support the screen. If you have blank screen right from turn on, chack that you have not plugged the monitor into the onboard graphics port instead of your Radeon. If you have plugged it into the right port then you have hardware problems. Could be any of the following:
1. Monitior
2. Video Card
3. System memory
4. Motherboard
5. Powersupply
6. CPU

Try a different monitor and get back to me if you want troubleshooting tips.

Screen not starting after installing graphics card


Hi rohit1987,

The XFX NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express card uses two DVI ports on the back of the card. Display is most likely coming from the second port. Try moving your monitor cable to the next DVI port. You can do this while your system is running.
If you still do not receive display, post that here & we'll go over some other possibilities.

Good luck rohit1987!
Thank you for using fixya.

Installing GeForce 5200 on Dell Dimension 2400


I suggest that better check that graphic card in another machine and make sure it is working.

Also find out the data transfer speed of your mother board through the AGP slot is compatible with your graphic card. (e.g. 4X, 8X, etc.)

If you are sure that your system really has an 8X AGP port (A choclate colored slot) then you could deffinitely install the card and work with it.

With the information I received the Dell Dimension 2400 deos not features an AGP 8X port, in that case it is not possible to install the card.

Then you should buy a new motherboard with AGP 8X Port to be able to install the Ge force FX 5200.
