Modem front panel

Please would you explain to me what the holes, (eg. SmartMedia/*D) is used for on my new PC. Dumb, I know, but I'm old and never grew up with PC's. Now if it was the subject of Chemical Engineering, I could give you a lesson or two. Thanks for your time. Bill

Hi Bill,
It,s a 15 in 1 Memory Card reader.
These are used to read SD/MMC et,c memory cards.
So that you can transfer Pictures et,c. From a digital Camera Or Similar. Directly to Your PC.
to view an inserted memory card. they usually appear as device letters, in my computer. If C:/ is the Hard-Disk. E:/ backup ( Partition Of Hard-disk ) F:/ DVD drive. Then G:/ H:/ I:/ would all be designated to the 15 in 1 card reader.

Hope this helps.

Mike @ compurepair.

I installed a new wireless network card....when removing the outer cover of my pavilion xe734 a black and red wire came loose...it has 3 pins holes a white solid blank then 5 pin holes...i cannot figure...


if the wire is coming from the front bezel of the computer it sounds like your front panel connections. They connect to the motherboard and control your power button and lights. That would explain why it won't power on too! Unfortunately all motherboard connect to the front in different places, but it will always be on the outer edge of the board usually near the bottom of the tower. Try seeing which pins on the board match up. Hope this helps!

Internet cable won't plug into phone jack on the back of the pc


on the rear of the pc you may have 2 plug slots, one for the nodem and one for the lan (ethernet cable)
modem port looks like this:e29bde8.jpg

lan (ethernet ports) look like this:ca0da14.jpg

you will notice that the modem is smaller that the ethernet port, look for port that the ethernet cable fits in because you have the right lead because your modem is cable not ADSL

hope this hepls

Unable to connect to internet through netgear modem. told to uninstall firewall, this I did but still no joy.


really need more information to make an educated guess, but if this netgear is recently added, try using the control panel - add/remove and remove all programs for the netgear. Then control panel - system - device manager and uninstall the modem. Keep modem connected to pc and reboot. After it detects the modem use the modem cd to load only the driver. Let windows manage the modem.

There are sometimes issues with the PPPOE. the DSL provider should be able to resolve this.
