I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Question about PCI-e slot below dual slot video card

My opinion ...

Yes, setting up like that will have an impact. The air flow to your GPU will be restricted so it will more than likely run hotter than it did. It may still stay withing recommended specs, but it will run hotter.

The motherboard has onboard sound (Realtek® ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC ), any particular reason why you don't use that? Onboard sound is perfectly good for gaming and the like now, its not like older machines where you needed a dedicated card for decent quality. In my opinion, you only need a dedicated card if you are doing a lot of detailed audio work (mixing, remastering and other specific audio work). This would totally remove the issue.

hi there,
i need to know which know which graphic card will fit for my computer. Ie i want to know which type: DDR ,DDR1 or ddr2 i bought my computer in 2007, but thats not enough to tell.
so please let me know how do i know which pci slot i have?
 

A:which graphic card slot do i require for my PCI slot

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

I have an AGP 2x slot. Can i put an AGP 8x video card into that slot. If so, will i see any performance gain. Or are there video cards that are compatible with all types, like 2x 4x and 8x.
 

A:Video card and Video card slot Question

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Agp1x/2x are 3.3 volts, whereas Agp4x/8x are 1.5 volts.

You should check carefully that whatever card you get is compatible with you 2x Agp slot.

A:Will a dual slot card fit?

The case looks ok, the psu is enough though some would say to go with a much stonger one.

Dual slot card means, that you can't use the slot below the 16x slot that you put the card in. I would say yes it fits, though you must do some calculations about the case to make sure that you have enough space.

I just purchased this pre-built machine:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7375900

Acer Aspire AM3970-UR14P DT.SJYAA.003 Desktop PC

I'm attempting to order a graphics card upgrade ( probably an affordable Nvida GT 650 ti . Obviously the card will consume some space due to the fan. I'm trying to figure out if the card ( or a similar dual slot PCIx card) will fit onto the motherboard. I know from past experience that a lot of non-custom built PCs have little to no room for expansion.

I've searched all over the net about this particular model number of Acer Aspire and can come up with no information about the motherboard to check for myself.

Would anyone happen to know where i can find info about the motherboard for this particular model of Acer Aspire desktop?

** Also, i do intend on removing the included radeon card.
 

A:Will a dual slot graphics card fit in my machine?

It is hard to tell if it would fit the case, but the specs state that your computer only has a 300W Power Supply and that definitely will not work with the card you list.

The problem is when the gtx 260 is in the first pci-express slot (top slot) and the 8800 GTS is in the second (bottom slot) the 8800 is not detected. However if the positions are reversed both cards are detected. Anyone have any solutions as to why this is happening?

Some pc builders recommend the video card(not AGP) be placed on the PCI slot nearest to the power supply. Anyone know the rationale for this?
 

A:PCI Slot/Video Card Placement

That seems to be the most popular slot for the highest priority devices during "bus arbitration". Since video or graphics require the most from system resources it's best to give them the highest priority when they are negotiating for control of the PCI bus. But, the specification doesn't require that, so a designer could assign any PCI slot to have the highest priority if he/she wanted to.

I am playing with the idea of getting a new Video Card just because the one I have is old. I was looking at my MB. I have two PCIE 16X slots. One of them is black and one is blue. My current card is in a blue one. 90% of the slots are blue so the black one leads me to believe it would be faster. There is nothing in my manual to give me any info and I saw nothing on the MB to indicate anything. Anyone have any idea why one is black and one is blue? Thanks

Hi! I just bought an nvidia geforce mx400 video card off of ebay for an old computer. It is a universal pci card and the computer has a 5v pci slot. When i tried to put the card into the slot it did not fit because the connector on the card is about 1mm too far off to the back of the card. I compared it with another pci card and it actually was a bit off. Does anybody know if that's a defect in the card or is there something I don't know. Thank you!

They're supposed to be backwards compatible, so the answer should be yes. I have seen some newer motherboards that only accept the 1.5v AGP cards, so they wouldn't function with older AGP cards, but that's not your situation.

Recently my computer monitor quit displaying my video feed. I first figured the card may have come loose as I never actually screwed it down. So I checked connections but the card fit and didn't seem to be obstructed. Next I checked the card in another computer, it worked. Then I checked the monitor on another computer, it worked. I checked the ram, seemed just fine. There are no beeps and everything seems to turn on without fail on start-up. I get absolutely no signal from the monitor though which leads me to believe that there may be no connection between the video card and motherboard. All help is appreciated, thanks.

Also, video card is AGP if that helps. Its old stuff I know. haha

I do believe those are specific to that make and model card and not generic or interchangeable. At best all you will find on line are blanks to fill empty slots. If you are handy with a drill and a file you could make one from a blank. You might be able to get one from the original manufacturer, but the cost may not be worth it, even if you can get it.

Provided that slot you have is agp x8 and not a slower slot then it should work fine.
Only thing, there was no mention of minimum psu spec in your link. You need to have a look at the label on the side of your psu for its wattage and its amperage on the 12volt rail.


You might want to blank out your windows serial so than no-one else can use it.

The user manual says the board van not run a single card in the second slot, however I have booted my pc and ran it with no problems for a few days but it takes a few tries resetting it before it will boot. It gets stuck looking at the first slot most of the time.

Hi: If your onboard video adapter doesn't work, and resetting the CMOS doesn't work, you can try putting the PCI express x16 video card you have now into the white PCIe x4 slot (the white video card slot next to the black PCIe x16 slot), and see if you can get into the BIOS to change the PCI x 16 setting.  It might work in the x4 slot. If that doesn't work either, then you will have to install a PCI video card (one that goes into one of the white PCI slots) and use that to get into the BIOS so you can change the settings to enable the PCIe x16 slot. So, see if you can find a cheap, used, PCI video card on eBay, and that should allow you to have video again. You also need to make sure you have removed all connections from the PC when you reset the CMOS (all cables, power cord, mouse, monitor, etc).

I would like to move my sound card above the GPU. Right now it's under it, because I thought it wouldn't fit up there with my new water cooler. But there seems to be more than enough room. So my question is, once I move the sound card from one slot to another, do I have to reinstall the drivers or change any of the settings? Thanks in advance

A:Question regarding moving sound card from 1 pcie slot to another

You do not need to change settings or re-install anything if you move the card.

Hello,
I just got a Asus A8N-SLI mother board and a pny 7800gt video card. The card only works in the bottom pci express slot though, when i try to plug into the top the monitor light keeps blinking like nothings going through. Everything seems to work fine when in the bottom slot but i am worried about the heat. I have my sound card close to that so theres not much flow between like their would be in the top slot. (also the top slot is blue, bottom is black, if that makes a difference) I left the default set at single card mode on the motherboard. Also being in that slot is the card running at full capacity? 16x?
My other specs are:
1gb Corsair value select ram
Antec 450Watt SmartPower 2.0 PSU
AMD 64 3700

thanks
 

A:Video card wont work in top PCI Express slot on sli board

mmm... Check out the BIOS option for the SLI cause it could be that just one slot is enabled (the bottom on)...
about the heat issue... can you move the sound card to another slot?...

A:USB mouse only works in first USB slot, but won't work in any other USB slot

Hi NukesGoBoom,

I have seen a similar problem, but it was all USB ports that weren't working.

First, check the BIOS to make sure all USB ports are enabled, which they probably are.

Are all drivers installed and up to date? Do any yellow question marks or exclamation points show up in Device Manager?

That's known as integrated graphics, now do you have a PCI video card and an APG video card or an Integrated video card and an AGP card?

Also what are they Radeon xxxx? or Nvidia xxxx? we need to know the model numbers to tell you which is the better on to use.

A:can I add a AGP slot or PCI slot to a comp that doesnt have one?

You can't add a slot to a motherboard.

How old is this computer that it doesn't have a PCI slot? Those have been around for quite a while. Are you sure it doesn't have one? Even AGP is not new technology.

EDIT: After seeing your other thread, are you asking if you can purchase an AGP or PCI video card? That's a totally different question, and the answer would be yes depending on which slot your motherboard has. How much it costs depends on what you plan to use the computer for. A simple one is cheap, and high-end gaming cards can get expensive.

No. it takes up the room of two slots. (I hope) The fan and cooler cover what would be a usable socket, but the card only requires one PCI-E socket

I was surprised to find that I can't fit the new card won't fit, i.e. the PCIe expansion slot lines up with the top opening on the case, but the GPU connection is on the lower slot, so it lines up with the lower opening.Is that correct? Is there no way to install a dual slot GPU in the DC5750?

1. There is a slot slightly offset from the modem and video card slots. It appears to be an AGP slot but is green. A couple of friends have brown AGP slots on their motherboards. Do I have AGP?

2. How do I tell what kind of AGP slot I have (2x/4x/8x).

3. If I purchase an 8x, like the Radeon, will it work okay in the 2x/4x AGP slot?

Most of the better online sites will tell you what the AGP cards they sell will require... as will the AGP manufacturers if you dig deeply enough.

Quick question, can a single PCI slot fail and the rest work? I have a modem that started acting up and I pulled it out and put it back in and reinstalled it and it worked for two seconds and quit working. I then put a different modem in and it worked sometimes while sometimes it didn't. I am using a USB external modem and as you can see, I am connected. Is it a coincidence that I had two bad modems back to back or is the PCI slot bad? I haven't tried using a differnet slot yet because I wanted to see if one PCI slot can fail and the others work.

Thanks, Adam
 

A:PCI slot question

Yes it certainly can. You could have a electrical issue with the slot, it could also be dust build upl. You may also want to check the modems in a differnt PC as well in the rare cause you had two bad ones.

Maybe is there a ISA to PCI slot convertor or something out there?

A:SD card slot

Is a light coming on when you put the card in? If not, the reader may not be connected, or it may have failed. Make sure you are inserting the card into the correct slot and make sure it is facing the correct direction. Usually the label is up. If the light does not come on you may open the case and see if the reader is connected to the motherboard.

Nothing is neccessarily going to happen when you insert the card - you have to go to My Computer, then find the SD drive (it's going to be E:\ or F:\ or something similar) and view its contents.

A:agp slot or card?

Check the capacitors on the motherboard. Around that era of ePox motherboards, there was a big capacitor scandal overseas, and many motherboard manufacturers mistakenly used inferior capacitors, which were prone to failure. I had to replace the caps on my 8rda+ and a few others as well. They're the little 'towers' on the motherboard, and if the tops of them are bulging, then they're no good. Here's a good picture to show the difference. Check all the capacitors on the board, they're probably scattered about in different places.

Other than that, if you really think it's the slot, then there's no real way to fix it, unless you can see a faulty connection somewhere. Socket A motherboards should be pretty cheap by now, or you might want to consider upgrading the whole thing.

Am I getting the full potential out of my vid card? Or is my PCIe slot restricting some of it's potential due to the signal x1 thing as I'm not sure what that means.

Would it be worth it to upgrade my mother board? I am also running 3gb ddr2 667 if it makes a difference.

most newer motherboards will allow you to install them in any slot. Some older motherboards wanted them installed in certain configurations. Check the motherboard manual and see if it lists configuration options for memory

Generally I try to put the biggest chip in the first dimm slot

So I damaged 2 of the 3 USB 2.0 ports on my laptop (very stupid i know )

My laptop supports ExpressCard/34 and ExpressCard/54, so I plan to buy one with extra uSB 2.0 ports.

However, before I get my expectations up, I wanted to ask two questions (which may end up being one)

Will the card be able to charge an iPod when plugged in? From what I've been told its no, but if thats the case, it will still do a sync, correct?

The other question is: If I have an external hard drive that runs off of an AC adapter, will it work in the card slot as well?

BONUS QUESTION: Will I run into any of these problems if I buy a USB Hub?
 

A:Express Slot question

Hello,
Regarding your ipod, it will charge normally, and thus sync normally. But, regarding your external hard drive, normally, it won't work without the AC Adapter, you should have mentioned what kind of external hdd ( 2.5' or 3.5" ). However, concerning the hub, you should make sure that the usb hub should be a powered hub in order to make the ipod (for example) charge while connected.

Lately, My laptop is very slow in recognizing my usb stick, or my Hard drive (usb 3.0) or my sxs cards through my express card slot. It 's also slow in recognizing my sd-cards through my card reader. I have a very fast laptop. A lenovo W530.

I just started a while ago, and I can't get it to recognize faster . Everything else works just fine and fast.... but it takes up to 4 minutes to recognize these things.

Can somebody help?

A:Laptop slowly recognizes usb stick/sd card/xpress card slot

Hey tidri. 2 things come to mind if it previously worked. One is a reinstall of all the drivers for the mobo, and the other is a full AV/Malware/Rootkit scan. If everything checks out, a full format and an OS reinstall would be my third move.

Hello,My only question here is, what's the SIM card slot in my laptop for? My laptop is an HP Elitebook 6930p and it has Windows 7 32-bit. I used the SIM card that's in my phone, but that didn't do anything. Do I need any new drivers?  Or do I need to purchase something in order for my SIM card to work?  Thanks in advance for any answers. 

A:SIM Card slot in my laptop - what's it for?

The SIM card from a phone probably wouldn't work in the SIM slot. The SIM slot is for WWAN (mobile broadband) such as you used to see for USB 3G modems. Phones are typically provisioned differently with different options on the provider side which could prevent a phone SIM card from working properly in the SIM slot.The following document discussing the WWAN function of the notebook. You will need to contact a provider and activate the service to get a SIM card for it. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?prodSeriesId=3688868&objectID=c0108652...

Not a compatibility question, I'm fairly certain that wouldn't be an issue. The question is about overall performance gain. Looking at a Radeon R9 270, currently have a 5670. Here's a benchmark comparison from hwcompare.com - now I'm not a heavy gamer but I am running a mod on a particular favorite that could use a boost. Thing is, the m/b (being 2.0) can't take full advantage of the card otherwise it might be something of a no brainer. Card has excellent reviews and happens to be on sale.
So there's got to be some people here that have been in a similar situation, wondering spend the coin or not. Lets say the $ isn't an issue, just wondering about what to expect in actual gain.
Thanx.

A:PCI Express 3.0 card in 2.0 slot

Using a PCI-e 3.0 card in a PCI-e 2.0 slot will give less performance but not as much as one would think—maybe no more than 10% less—over what it would have done in a PCI-e slot. However, the newer PCI-e 3.0 card very well may give far better performance than an older PCI-e 2.0 card, even when running on only PCI-2.0.

Well, im an ***. I went ahead and bought a GeForce2 MX 64MB 4X AGP card and forgot that I didn't have an AGP slot on my motherboard. I was wondering if there is anyway to use some sort of adapter so I can still use the board, instead of going through the process of having to sell it.
 

A:AGP Card but no slot on board

Hi Setan

I doubt that there is any way of using an AGP card on your motherboard. No one would bother to make an adaptor when they can just make a PCI version of the card.

Im trying to install a ATI Radeon X1300 Pro 256 MB AGP 8x, into my old Dell Dimension 4600, replacing a Nvidia GeForce 5600, when i tried to boot up the PC with the ATI Card in i got no signal to the monitor from either DVI/VGA plugs, the card was working im thinking because the Fan on the card itself was working.

My video controller/slot is: AGP8X and i was told this card "ATI Radeon X1300 Pro 256 MB AGP 8x" was compatible, was i lied too?

- Uninstall Device, Reinstall Device
- Tried updating driver, nothing exists per Microsoft
- Found nothing on Dell support

Message in Device Manager - "Device Status: This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

The cards were verifed on other hardware and I can connect to this PC and read cards using card reader with USB cable. This just started happening within the past 2 months. Hard to pinpoint time because I haven't used slot for a while.

Which is it, PCI-X or PCI-e? Matrox Odyssey XG is the only PCI-X card made that I know of and is serious overkill unless you are also doing video capture.

A:T520 How to use SIM card slot ?

Your T520 must have the appropriate WWAN hardware (radio card and antenna) in order to function. Otherwise the SIM slot is just a dummy slot. Do you know if you have this hardware installed? 
 
What is the model number of your T520, something like 4239-46U

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone here has tried this, I have a spare monitor and wondering what you think about doing this. I have an OLD ATI Graphics card (fits PCIE of course) and I know it will work but wondering if it's worth the effort. My 560ti has only a 2 monitor capability and just 1 other PCIE x1 slot is free just above the card.

So anyone here tried this? (I know this works if you do it right.)

(N.B. I have read the websites about how to do this, I am looking for personal, first hand experience.)

A:PCI-E x16 Graphics Card to Fit a PCI-E slot.

Haven't tried it.

I'm confused, though. Are you trying to fit a PCI-E X16 card in an X1 slot? I don't think it's possible.

You can certainly try an X1 card in an X16 slot. I've never seen an X1 graphics card, although I know that they exist.

(I've got an X1 soundcard running in a slot that is X16 mechanical, X4 electrically.)

Hi everyone.

I recently bought an AGP 8x nVidia 7600gt. However, it doesn't fit into my AGP slot. It is loose and I am scared of putting too much force on it that it will dmaage it.

I'm also not aware of what that tag on the end does?

The smaller of the two slots is facing the front of the computer. I'm also thinking that it isn't aligned properly.

Any help?
 

A:AGP card doesn't fit into slot

Sometimes, certain cards just don't fit on certain boards. I've had to return a couple because they hit against something. A couple other times, I managed to make them fit by shaving off an edge, but this is risky work and no circuit traces can get damaged in the process.
