Security ?lot? slot...

Do you mean security lock slot? There is a hole at the back of the computer which takes a device called a Kingston lock which is used to secure a laptop to a desk to prevent theft.

It looks like this

The spin cycle does not work

It may be your lid switch is broken. Can you see a slot where your top lid has a 3/4 in shaft that goes into the slot when closed? If there is no slot - then it is under the top at the back of the lid, there is a rod that actuates the lid switch. Maybe it just came apart. The housing of the lid switch mountings break a lot too -- It is plastic. You can get some wire bread twisties and close it up again for temporary fix. but you need to call a service guy to fix it right. You can tell if you switch is working by depressing the button on the micro switch. If it clicks, it works. See if you can secure it in the clicked position and it will spin. DO NOT put your hands in the spinning unit. The lid is the safety -and you just eliminated the safety

I need a wireless adapter for SX2110G-UW308

Search for "SX2110G-UW308 specifications" and found this link:

It shows there are 2 expansion slots and 6 USB 2.0 ports available on this desktop PC (2 on the front, 4 in the back), it also shows that the Operating System is Windows 8. This desktop does not have wireless, so you are correct, you have to add wireless to this system.

Option 1:

If you have never opened up a PC then I recommend a USB wireless adapter that has a plug and play compatible with Windows 8 feature. They are inexpensive and you plug it in to any USB port and it will automatically install. You don't even have to shut down the computer. Click here for a list of USB wireless adapters. Read the reviews and select one that has a mainly positive reviews: Lots of choices. Choose one that supports WPA2 security, has a good range. Antennas will give you a better range, and stronger signal.

Option 2:

  • One (1) PCI Express x16 slot
  • One (1) PCI Express x1 slot
If you are comfortable opening up the case, then go ahead, before you buy a card, shut down, turn off the power, unplug the system, open the case and look for the PCI slots. There should be two of them. Make sure they are empty and available. See if there is an opening in the case next to the expansion slot for the wireless antennae to protrude out the back of the case. There are lots of PCI express wireless choices. Pick a card with WPA2 security, it should say plug and play with windows 8 as one of its features, pick one with good reviews and a good range:

Before you touch anything inside the case, double check that it is unplugged, touch the the case a few times to discharge any static, or wear a static discharge wrist strap. Plug in the PCI card firmly but gently, make sure it seats, make sure all the pins line up. Don't bend or break anything. Remove the metal or plastic slot cover on the case, close the case, plug it in, power on. It will also automatically install.

Where do i install the camera memory card into my laptop

According to the manufacture web site that model has a - • 4-in-1 Bridge Media Adapter,with Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Memory Stick™, Memory Stick PRO™, Multi Media Card™ [shared slots]
So basically you need to look for just one slot, and you have to use one of those memory formats, If your using something else then it wouldn't work, You'll need a USB adapter that will read your type of media, The slot looks like its on the front edge of the laptop. It'll be a pretty small slot across the front, about where your left thumb would be. Its possible you have a model that didnt have one. The Bridge Media Adapter slot (available on certain models) supports the use of Memory Stick,, Memory Stick™ PRO, Secure Digital™ (SD™), MMC™ (MultiMediaCard™), or xD-Picture Card™ media. These media can be used with a variety of digital products: digital music players, cellular phones, PDAs, digital cameras, digital video camcorders, etc.
Lots of good info and owners manual at.
hopefully you can just click on all that,,,,,,

Port with rectangle symbol?

I think that you mean the "PC card slot". It's a slot for using with some kind of external accesories. For example some could use it for a firewire card slot, so that can connect a firewire on the laptop. Here is the left side of your laptop

In case you want here is the link for your laptop from Toshiba.

No problem

I can't find any decent photos of your laptop online so I can't see what you're seeing, but it may be one of several things:

1) A PCMCIA or Express Card slot - this is a flat, long slot that usually has a dummy plastic "card" in it. You put wifi, network, sound, modem, video capture etc. cards in here

2) A smartcard reader - often located just under an express card slot - is a very thin slot where you put a business-card like ID card which can authenticate you, like a fingerprint. When you take it out your computer locks automatically. These are a defunct security standard usually on business laptops, not used much anymore but it's so small that a lot of laptops come with them anyway. In fact it's easy to not even realize it's there.

3) A proprietary expansion slot - HP in particular are known for putting special "expansion ports" just for HP devices. Perhaps this laptop is the same.

I'd bet it's probably #1.


get memmory card reader that have the port of your memmory card. and the card reader adapter most be the usb port one so when you insact your memmory card in the card reader you can then slot the card reader in to the usb port.

PCI slot / TV tuner error

i am not an expert, but have lots of experience with my own media center. by moving the tuner card you changed the address of it which if the os does not recognize new hardware, it will not install the drivers for it. i believe you will have to use the device manager to reinstall the drivers for the tuner card. also will have to redo the setup for the tuner in media center. another problem with the softare change is you have to update the security components to be able to view certain channels.

you can find the best information for all these subjects at your computer manufacturers support website and of course microsoft for the security components. good luck, it should not be too difficult to solve your delemna with a little research and searching there.

Where is the firewire port?

Confirm that the laptop has a PCMCIA card slot. If so, you can get a Firewire PCMCIA card and communicate at near bus speeds on the laptop. That will be a lot faster than the USB port. Almost any Firewire PCMCIA will work. Just make sure that slot is in your chassis.
