Attemping to install a PCI card for a remote receiver for a wireless system. I have the side cover off and just can't get PCI slot cover off. Can't find a screw or anything like that to release the slot cover. It appears that the four slot covers are attached to each other and one side of the cover is attached to entire frame.

Yes that is correct, find the one that is for the slot you need and remove the cover by bending it to and fro. It will then come away from the chassis. Be sure to remove any screws that may be holding it in place.
Then insert your PCI card in the slot and use a screw to secure it to the chassis.

Thanking you

How to install


Shut down the PC. Open the case: On the back there is a button that releases a panel at the rear of the top. When that is raised, the side comes off. Once inside, there are some connector slots on the motherboard. If you have dual video cards, you may not have any free slots! Remove the cover on the case for the slot you will use. Plug in the card. If there was a screw holding the cover for the slot, use it to lock in the card.
If you don't have any open slots, you can use a USB wireless adapter, and return the card.

Does the dell studio 540 pc come with a built in wireless card


The wireless card was optional for that particular computer. You can see if you have one by clicking the start button (lower left corner) right click on computer and select "manage". When the window opens click device manager in the left window and find "network adapters" in the larger center window. If you see a wireless card listed in that then you have one and it should be activated already (there's no on/off switch for wireless on a desktop). If you don't, any PCI wireless card can be purchased for 15-30 bucks. To install it, turn off and unplug your computer, take off the side panel of your machine, remove the i/o cover adjacent to the PCI slot you plan to use and insert the card into the pci slot and secure it with the screw that held the cover on. Power on your computer and run the driver installation software that came with the card you purchased.

The numbers 24 and 26 point to a PCI-Express x1 slot.

You can buy a Wireless N adapter card to fit either a PCI slot, or a PCI-Express x1 slot.

{NOTE* Number 27 points to a PCI-Express x16 slot.
This = NO.
This expansion slot is used for a graphics card, ONLY }

Dell optiplex 780 wirless card (2.4/5 GHz Wireless 1505 PCI Express) I want to install it. Does it need any parts extra to install on it? & what I should connect to its socket?


Hi moh f2007...

The pci wireless card will work in your computer, just plug it in..and turn it on...
If it came with a cd install it first before plugging the card into the alloted slot.
After installation of the CD then you will:
Shut the computer off.
Install the card:
Open up the machine, look towards the back of the machine and you will see metal covers that can be removed and replace with different cards, pick the right slot that the PCI card will go into and remove that blank cover and install the wireless card into that slot.
Turn the computer on and clear any boxes or windows that might open
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Wireless card


Typically it is the side of the PC cover that slides off. If you are facing the PC from the fron it should be on the left hand side. Once you get the side cover off then i9t will expose your Motherboard. Please ensure that you have the PC turned off. You should see some empty slots if you PC has any available these are called PCI slots. They will be a very specific shape for the device that you are attaching to the PC.

Then you will need to remove one of the device slot plates from the rear of the PC and you should be able to get you Wireless card to slide into on of the PCI slots.

Onece the hardware is installed you will need to boot your PC then install the drivers that came with your Wireless card.

Good Luck

I am trying to install a wireless pci card onto my acer m1100 desktop. I've installed the software first (as suggested) and am now trying to install the actual pci in the slot, but am not sure which slot...


On the back of your computer, there should be a bunch of covered slots. When you take off the cover of your computer, you should be able to unscrew these slot covers and remove them. Taking one off will give you a slot to install your wireless card. You will want the main plug part of the card to fit into one of the three large slots on your motherboard, and the side with the antenna will screw into the slot that you removed the cover for.

System do not reconize the PCI card


Does it ask for a driver to be installed? Or have you got the wireless version of the mobo that needs an ASUS WiFi-b add-on card with an omni-directional antenna?

Like on the previous version of the mainboard, the PCB contains five PCI slots and an exclusive WiFi slot, in its left part. By the way, when you install the original WLAN card from ASUS into this slot, the last PCI becomes unavailable. Now let’s examine the card, too.
wifi-s.jpg
The card supports the wireless networking protocol IEEE 802.11b, describing data-transfer rates up to 11Mb/s. Using the software that accompanies the card, you can use it in the Ad Hoc as well as in the Infrastructure mode, and the card can perform the functions of a programmable access point, providing connections to 31 clients. Thus, the owner of the WiFi-b kit can easily deploy wireless networks and connect to existing ones.
