How to add usb ports to Dell 530


Suggest use a USB adapter card.

More specifically a PCI USB adapter card.

Dell Support > Inspiron 530 Series Desktop PC > Owner's Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/inspd530/en/OM/HTML/index.htm

In the list click on - Removing and Installing parts

1) Unplug the computer from power.
[Unplug FROM the surge protector, not the back of the computer. (Power Supply)
Unplugging from the back could lead to a power surge ]

2) Computer on a table open the computer case,
Click on - Removing the Computer Cover - in the list.

3) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware inside the computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

4) http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/inspd530/en/OM/HTML/parts.htm#wp1184332

Here you see an illustration of your motherboard. Oriented as it is in your computer case. (Just no hardware components, nor cables are attached)

At the bottom of the motherboard are 2 White long expansion slots.
In the illustration they are labeled by the numbers 21 and 22.
If one of these slots is open, and not being used, you can install a PCI USB adapter card.

This is one example of a PCI USB adapter card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5606148&Sku=S262-2744

At the back of the computer, located towards the bottom, are the Expansion Slots.
Four horizontal slots.

If there isn't some sort of add-on adapter card already installed, all of the expansion slots will be covered with an Expansion Slot Cover.

If there is an add-on adapter card installed of course, one of the expansion slot covers will be removed.

Line up the PCI USB adapter card with the open PCI slot, you have chosen.
Now look at the expansion slots at the rear of the computer.
Notice what expansion slot that the PCI USB card's bracket, lines up with.

Go to the back of the computer, and view the small metal bracket on the bottom right. Loosen the Thumbscrew, and swing the bracket out. (Thumbscrew is supposed to just loosen, not come out)

Remove the expansion slot cover for your PCI slot choice.
Install the PCI USB adapter card.
Note that there is a Locating Lug in the PCI slot, and a matching Locating Notch, on the PCI USB adapter card.

Line them up, then push the PCI USB card straight down into the PCI slot.
Also watch the metal bracket on the back of the PCI USB card.
The 'tang' at the Bottom, slides down in-between the framework.

The top of the bracket has a half-moon notch, that lines up with a small 'dowel' on the computer case framework.
Make sure it is aligned, and the bracket is aligned.

What I am referring to will become readily apparent, as you go to install the PCI USB card.
If there are any other add-on adapter cards, they may try to fall out, when you go to install the new add-on card.

You just have to line them up, so their bracket notches are all on the 'dowels', and hold them in place. Then swing the 'door' closed. Tighten the thumbscrew.

If you have an Add-on card in the way, and by moving it to the other PCI slot, will allow you to install the PCI USB card, go ahead, and move it.
Doesn't matter. BIOS will find it, and assign an Interrupt Request.


There are two other expansion slots above the 2 white PCI slots.
The expansion slot right above the top PCI slot, is a PCI-Express x1 slot.
If this slot is open, OR the only one available, you can use a PCI-Express USB adapter card.

Example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5606149&CatId=511


The last expansion slot you have is above the PCI-Express x1 slot.
This is a PCI-Express x16 slot, and is ONLY used for a graphics card.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

HP Pavilion d4000 (d4495.se-a) cant find or see the USB ports, have reinstalled XP home, new backupbattery, check with Pd-doctor 3.0 -result test 4 CPU processor test, CPU Number 2 (Apic ID 01H) CPU...


You could easily pick up an aftermarket USB PCI card, which will give you 2-4 USB ports that have their own logic chip. These are quite easy to install and very inexpensive.
Another option would be a front-mounted USB hub, which would attach to the USB header on your mainboard. They come in 3.5" size (to go in a floppy drive slot) or 5.25" for CD/DVD size slots.
Either of these should work fine as long as the rest of the PC is OK. If not, they are pretty much universal, so you could put in your next computer. (if it didn't work).
Good luck!

Motherboard diagram


A Computer Motherboard Diagram motherboard-diagram-01.jpg Once you know what you are looking at, you can recognize the components on any motherboard layout. A computer motherboard diagram is very useful for when you need to replace motherboard, do motherboard upgrades, troubleshoot motherboard, or build your own computer.
  1. PCI Slot - This board has 2 PCI slots. These can be used for components such as Ethernet cards, sound cards, and modems.
  2. PCI-E 16x Slot - There are 2 of them on this motherboard diagram, both are blue. These are used for your graphics card. With two of them onboard, you can run 2 graphics cards in SLI. You would only need this if you are a gamer, or working with high end video / graphics editing. These are the 16x speed versions, which are currently the fastest.
  3. PCI-E 1x Slot - Single slot - In the PCIe 1.x generation, each lane (1x) carries 250 MB/s compared to 133 MB/s for the PCI slots. These can be used for expansion cards such as Sound Cards, or Ethernet Cards.
  4. Northbridge - This is the Northbridge for this motherboard. This allows communication between the CPU and the system memory and PCI-E slots.
  5. ATX 12V 2X and 4 Pin Power Connection Power Connection - This is one of two power connections that supply power to the motherboard. This connection will come from your Power Supply.
  6. CPU-Fan Connection - This is where your CPU fan will connect. Using this connection over one from your power supply will allow the motherboard to control the speed of your fan, based on the CPU temperature.
  7. Socket - This is where your CPU will plug in. The orange bracket that is surrounding it is used for high end heat sinks. It helps to support the weight of the heat sink.
  8. Memory Slots - These are the slots for your RAM. Most boards will have 4 slots, but some will only have 2. The color coding you see on the motherboard diagram is used to match up RAM for Dual-Channel. Using them this way will give your memory a speed boost.
  9. ATX Power Connector - This is the second of two power connections. This is the main power connection for the motherboard, and comes from the Power Supply.
  10. IDE Connection - The IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) is the connection for your hard drive or CD / DVD drive. Most drives today come with SATA connections, so you may not use this.
  11. Southbridge - This is the controller for components such as the PCI slots, onboard audio, and USB connections.
  12. SATA Connections - These are 4 of the 6 SATA connections on the motherboard. These will be used for hard drives, and CD / DVD drives.
  13. Front Panel Connections - this is where you will hook in the connections from your case. These are mostly the different lights on your case, such as power on, hard drive activity etc.
  14. FDD Connection - The FDD is the Floppy Disk controller. If you have a floppy disk drive in your computer, this is where you will hook it up.
  15. External USB Connections - This is where you will plug in external USB connections for your case or USB bracket.
  16. CMOS battery - This is the motherboard's battery. This is used to allow the CMOS to keep its settings.

How can i tell the difference between pci slots and pcie slots


The Peripheral Component Interconnect or more commonly known as PCI is a standard for connecting a lot of devices inside your computer to extend its capabilities. Devices like sound cards, modems, NIC, TV Tuners, and some video cards have at some point or another have used the PCI port.
PCI express ( PCI-E ) is a much improved version in terms of speed. PCIe uses a serial interface instead of the old parallel interface used by PCI. It also utilizes individual buses for each of the devices connected to it instead of a shared one like what PCI uses. The difference in speed is quite huge when comparing the standard PCI slot which runs at 133MB/s to a 16 slot PCIe that can send or receive up to 16GB/s.

The most common use for PCIe nowadays is with graphics cards which benefits hugely from the huge bandwidth provided by the interface.
1. PCIe is much faster compared to PCI.
2. PCIe uses a serial interface while PCI uses a parallel interface.
3. PCIe speed is classified into lanes, each capable of delivering up to 1GB/s data transfer.
4. PCI slots are standardized while PCIe slots vary depending on the number of lanes the slot is intended for.
5. Despite PCIe superiority, most manufacturers still use the PCI standard for their devices.

Unlike PCI slots which are the same size for all devices, PCIe slots can differ depending on which form factor it accepts. The longest would be the 16 lane slot and understandably, the shortest is for the x1 devices.

I hope this much information is enough for you to understand the difference between both of them. If you need any more help let me know.. !

What high speed graphic cards are compatible with my mother board. NVIDIA / READON, pci or pci express ? HP Pavilion 524g


You need to check your board for this info, or download the software to give you details of what is installed on your system. Go to www.download.com and have a look in the system utilities section. You can also go to hp.com and in the support section, check the manual for your machine.. PCI slots look completely different to PCIE slots, PCIE slots are longer so that can be an indication of which slot the board has..

My 2gb ram stick died, so I tried upgrade to 4gb


Most appreciated naturalgal66.
Perhaps you would like more information, to put together some of the information I stated in the Clarifications.

This is a motherboard block diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

This relates to the motherboard model you have. Motherboards used for the Intel Core i7 are of a different design, and technology.

CPU as you know stands for Central Processing Unit, or for short - Processor.

The Processor 'communicates' through the Front Side Bus, (FSB), to the Northbridge chip. (Think of the FSB as a 'Data Highway'. Communication goes back, and forth)

The Northbridge chip handles the Ram Memory, and the high speed graphics card slot. (If used on a particular motherboard) Since it handles a high speed graphics card slot, it only handles PCI-Express or AGP.
Not PCI.

The Northbridge chip communicates through the Internal Bus to the Southbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the motherboard.
Some examples are:
1) PCI, and PCIe.
(PCIe is PCI Express. It is PCI Express, but relates to the slower PCI Express x1. Not the faster PCI Express x16 used for graphics)

2) Onboard Audio

3) SATA, LAN, and USB ports

4) Ethernet
And other devices.

As you can see the Southbridge chip controls the Onboard graphics, (Integrated graphics) through a PCI bus.
It also controls anything that is installed in a PCI slot.

If you have time someday, you may want to look up some of the hardware, and technology used in a personal computer.
A lot of information can be found on Wikipedia.
You may want to type in Wikipedia's search box,

1) Northbridge (computing)
2) Southbridge (computing)
3) Front Side Bus
4) Sdram, (This page will start you with SDR Sdram. Single Data Rate Sdram. Links are also listed in blue for info on DDR Sdram, DDR2 Sdram, DDR3 Sdram, and includes the new technology coming, DDR4 Sdram)
5) Harddrive
6) Integrated Drive Electronics, (IDE)
7) SATA
8) RAID
9) Comparison of Nvidia chipsets (Also Comparison of Nvidia graphics processing units
10) Comparison of AMD chipsets (Also Comparison of AMD graphics processing units, and also to include Comparison of ATI graphics processing units.
11) GPU
12) Clock generator (Did you know that a quartz crystal, is used as an oscillator for a Processor?)

Anything you see in blue is a link to more information about it.

{Interested in knowing what's inside a Harddrive, or do you already know?

No video


ok fine i think there exists some problem in the cable connecting from the CPU to the monitor just try removing that & inserting it again ....

if the same problem persists then there may be some problem in the port of the video card just take tester & test is there power supply or not ....

if there is no power supply then some of the capacitor on the video card might have burned out due to this ports will not be working ....

if there is power supply then there will be one IC(integrated circuit ) on the motherboard just near by the AGP or PCI express slot (i think in your motherboard there are 3 IC s near there)
in those 3 IC s if some IC goes means also you will not get the display ...

(the video must be inserted to the PCI express slot or AGP slot only) you must not insert it on PCI slots ...
you make a difference of PCI or AGP slot as this will be only 1 or 2 on every motherboard & it will be smaller in size than the PCI slots & there will be colour difference(may be the PCI slots will be white colour & AGP or PCI express slot in black or brown colour it depends on the motherboard)
check on which slot you have inserted it & insert it correctly if you inserted in some other slots ...

remove the video & insert it again & try check the cables the cable may be loose contact ...

any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
