Yeah. But you don't have a problem with USB; your problem is being too lazy to check a computer store (or Amazon, even) for USB products that fit open adaptors like PCI slots on your PC. Your PC model is poorly described too, nevermind the wrong classification of genericity to Compaq PC Desktops. Go get a machine new enough to not plow through kilowatts while effectively slowing you down, and it will have more USB ports. You can read books on current PCs, at the shelf, at the bookstore, until you take delivery.

How to get hdmi on emachines model w3611 without buying anything, is there a plugin inside?


No. The W3611 only has a VGA output on the motherboard. To add an HDMI port, you will need a video card. If you choose an internal card, the machine will probably need a better power supply (400W or higher). You will also need to remove the card that is currently in the PCI-e x16 slot (probably the Fax modem).

There are some external video adapters that connect to the USB port. Some have HDMI out. However, if you want to play games or moves, these are often not a good option. They are limited by the USB 2.0 port.

CNET gives the specifications for the W3611 here: http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/emachines-w3611/4507-3118_7-32329686.html .

I hope this helps.

I just upgraded my Windows program from Windows 98 to Windows xp. I am trying to install WiFi but the usb ports are 1.0 and I need 2.0. I also do not have the dsl plug-in. I just have 2 phone plug-ins....


i assume that the pc is quite old since it used to have win98 on it, right? if it is, then it indeed have limited ports. you can buy and install additional usb ports anyway but the thing is, it needs to match the specs of your motherboard too.

if you can post the specs here we can probably check wether that pc can still use extra ports or if you have to buy a new tower (cpu) already.

Icannot download anything in my pc like songs like movie


Do you mean from web sites?
Or do you mean from a handheld device such as an I-POD?

Web downloading may be limited to how good your internet connection is. EG DSL; CABLE; DIAL-UP
If this is a problem how do pages like google.com load up?

If the issues are potable devices aka I-POD then most likly the USB port in the pc is not functioning
The presario dates back to win2000 / w98 days were drivers for the usb ports were never installed by the pc manufacturer. The harware may be there ports ect but do not work. Win
xp started the true intigration of usb hardware when installed. You did not mention what operating platform ur using so im speculating here...

Can i add another 500gb hard drive in my compaq 5450f desktop?identical hard drive.if so will it just recognize it when installed?thanks*


if you have unused usb ports, you can get a usb-hub device so you can connect more usb-devices.

as for usb-hd, you are only limited by the number of open ports. size doesnt matter :)

Wireless adapter


Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

USB ports


When you computer boots up you need to enter the cmos mode. Normallly it's the F-8 fuction key, but sometimes it can vary from pc to co. When you get inside the CMOS screen look for the usb ports, they should have a Enable/Disable. I am pretty sure that for some reason, the default is Disable.

Try this and let me know if this fixes the issue.

2.0 USB External Interface Compatible w Compaq USB Ports????


USB 2.0 is just faster.
If you have USB 1.0 ports on the computer the new drive will revert to that speed.

USB port


Have you confirmed that none of them work? Do the USB ports show up in device manager (look for USB Root Hub entries).

If all else fails, you could always buy an internal PCI card that has USB ports on the backplane.

Does your digital camera have an SD card or other memory slot that you could simply plug into your desktop to transfer your pictures?
