Question about Gateway PC Desktops

1 Answer

Buest Buy geeks tell me my port that takes my camera memory card is missing a pin and they need to send computer away for 2-3 weeks. Is this not covered under my original warranty? Is there a gateway dealer/rep I can get it to to get this repaired more quickly?

Forget repairing it. Just get a external multi-card reader that plugs unto a open USB port. Hopefully you have a USB 2.0 port as the older v ports were slooooow.

I want to download pictures from a digital camera on to my compaq presario cq56 but cant find memory card slot


Hi samantha_hic,
Actually, the memory card slot that you have in your laptop is not for storage devices but for your computer RAM. If you would like to transfer pictures from your digital camera, you have 2 options.
  1. I assume that when you bought your digital camera, it comes with a USB connector. Use that USB connector to connect your camera to your laptop for your to be able to transfer pictures.
  2. Buy a memory card reader, take out the memory card from your digital camera and put in on the memory card reader then connect it to your computer via USB. Once connected, you can now transfer pictures from your camera's memory card to your computer.
Hope this helps.

I purchased a restart/restore disc for my emachine two weeks ago i recieved it some time last week and come to find out that it dosnt work, i took it to best buy geek squad and the put in a disc of their...


Was the Geek Squad's disc being detected? Or did you just take them your disc to see if they could get a computer to recognize it? If not, then you may just need to change some settings at Boot for your computer to start booting from your restore disc. I've never personally dealt with the Geek Squad, but I would not just take their word for something. I've had several people very unhappy with the outcome of letting them service their computers. I've talked to other people who were very happy with the Geek Squad service. Try taking your disc to a local computer shop and ask them if they can put the disc in their computer to see if it is a functioning Restore Disc. MADHATTER COMPUTERS

What is compatible with my emahcines w3050 in upgrading my video memory. What limits are on my machine?


HDMI? Oh, then you would be talking about a graphics card like this one,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5071689&CatId=318

HIS Radeon HD4670 IceQ

1) AGP 8X graphics card
2) Has a VGA, DVI, and HDMI port
3) 1GB of GDDR3 ram memory
4) 128bit interface
5) 320 Stream Processors
6) Core Clock is 750MHz at maximum capability
7) Memory Clock is 1746MHZ at maximum capability

It doesn't matter that your computer system ram memory is DDR Sdram. The GDDR3 graphics ram memory operates independent of the system ram memory.

How to install a sd card reader on a Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop? no 4 pin usb on motherboard?


I managed to install a card reader on my Dell Dimension 8200.

The main problem is that the Dell motherboard does not have the correct USB pin. This is a 9-pin MoBo USB header.

The quick answer is I installed a USB card with an internal port.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Unbranded-USB-2-0-PCI-Card/dp/B00066LPA2/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1264968643&sr=1-6

Secondly I reverse mounted a powered 4-port USB hub in the spare 3.5" bay.

Third, I purchased 2 USB 5 pin male to usb leads...

http://www.amazon.co.uk/v2-0-Male-Motherboard-Header-Connector/dp/B000QC7NKM/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

You cannot buy a USB card with 2 internals and do away with the 4 port powered USB hub because the card reader does need to be connected to a powered USB port.

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

I want to download my pictures from my sanyo 770 digial to my p.c


2 Options:

1. Your camera probably came with a USB cable. If so you need to connect that cable from your camera to your PC and turn on the camera. Your computer should automatically recognize that you've plugged it in and should run a "wizard" that will walk you through importing those photos.

2. Your PC may have a "multi-card reader" this is a series of slots that accept different sizes/types of memory cards from cameras etc. Your camera has a memory card that you can remove and place into one of these slots. Again once you've plugged in this memory card you should again get the wizard asking you'd like to do.

I have a 530s where do i insert my memory card


If you are referring to a thumb drive, you can connect it to any USB port, which there are two of on the front of your computer.

If you are referring to a memory card from a camera or other portable device, you will need a separate card reader. Most card readers will take a wide variety of memory cards, so it is unlikely that you will need to buy one specifically made for your type of card.

Got a new computer-old one crashed. Want to install SanDisk on new computer. How?


If you want to use the flash memory card Sandisk then you will need the appropriate port and just plug it in. if you have no memory card reader ports then you will need to go to a computer store to buy one, if you mean you wish to move the memory card reader from the old computer to the new one that will require opening the case and will void any warranty you might have I would take the memory card reader down t the service center and the new computer and let them install it .
