The PCI card (Adaptec 29160N RAID) is 32-bit but the expansion slot on the motherboard (Super Micro P4DPR-6GM+) is 64-bit 66MHz PCI (3.3V). The card's POST doesn't show up during boot. Is this because it's 32-bit and the slot is 64-bit?https://forums.techguy.org/threads/32-bit-card-on-a-64-bit-expansion-slot.860644/

@Dr_Saiful?, welcome to the forum. Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the computer. Beginning on Page 26 you will find the Workstation Specifications. In the specs it says that two video cards can be used as long as the required wattage is no more than 150W. I suspect that you may be exceeding the wattage of your power supply unit (PSU).

I have a shared PCI/ISA slot on my MB. What (or better how) can I use this slot? I want to add a NIC for DSL but all my PCI's are in use by Firewire, SCSI, and sound cards? Can I use this shared slot for the NIC or swap out one of my others and use them in the shared??
Thanks for any help!
well, most PCI cards sohuld play nice nice with the shared slot. But i'm not to sure abuot that. I'm not sure if the sound card would like it though. You can probably just put the NIC in there
Just remember, i could be wrong.
I have an expansion slot, and I was wondering what goes in there? I know it's a stupid question, but I never hear much about it.

Do you guy knew if Dell E7250 is able to install ADDITIONAL ssd in M.2 Expansion Slots?
In the specification it's show there are free M.2 slot for WWAN or SSD.
If it's support what SSD M.2 model should i but 2242?
The additional slot referenced is in the E-dock expansion adapter - NOT the system. The system takes only one internal M.2 drive.
If you have (or purchase) the E-dock port adapter, you'll have the additional M.2 slot.
There's a small expansion slot labelled PCIE1x1 next to the longer slot in which I've installed a graphics card. What can the smaller one be used for? Can it for example hold an SSD? Thanks,Tom
Go to Solution.
OK, Yes that is the one that I was Refering to... There was some boards that could connect to that slot I don't see any ATM but they were non Controller systems Plug in and some would be found. Some wouldn't So I think they have done away with them... One with a Controller like the one in my picture here.... Can be used for SDD and also an extra HDD off it as well. They have others that are just SSD and some that have 2 spaces for SSD on the card but may not work for your space as they are longer cards. There are also some that offer SSD, SATA and exta ESata out the back... It is all up to what you want and how much you like to spend.http://community.acer.com/t5/Aspire-Desktops/TC-705-EB53-expansion-slot-question/td-p/411193/jump-to/first-unread-message
1. Expansion SlotWhat is the expansion slot specification for this model as we would like to add a dedicated graphics card with DisplayPort ? 2. MemoryHow many memory slots does it have on the motherboard ?What type of memory is required ?What is the maximum memory supported on the motherboard ?
Go to Solution.
Ok, Sorry looking up the model at Kingston and a couple other sites didn't show your computer and seeing I hadn't seen any I was confused. Based on what I have found maybe a Model from other country. With that said it looks like it comes with 2gig DDR3L Ram and is Upgradable to 8Gig Also looks like yours comes With 1 PCI Express x16 Slot. I am not sure with the PSU and with that slot if you would be able to upgrade to a different Graphics Card. GPU and size of case would put a huge limit on what could be able to fit...

Usually,newer motherboards have extra headers for connecting
the front panel connections.
Afraid graphics and network usually don't have header extensions,
but something like this can get audio/usb firewire up front.
You need to find one to match the headers.
USB is standard but audio can be standard or HD.
Ok so, I fried my motherboard a while back and am just now getting an Abit barebone kit with a brand new motherboard and was wondering whether my DDR RDIMM will work in the new DDR2 RIMM memory expansion slots?

Here is a link to the barebone kit at Tigerdirect.com:
No. You need ddr2 memory.
I want to add an expansion card to a new Tower 3620. I can get the box open to access to chassis just fine, but how does this black plastic cover on the expansion slots work. Looks like it's designed to make it easy to pop open all the slots at once, but it's way to clever for me to figure out. Hand me the big pliers!
When all else fails, read the manual (page 18-19).http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19984217

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 (RealtekŪ 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.
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?
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?
Wanting to add USB 3.0 to my existing AMD system and am seeking input from those that may have already been down this path. The LaCie LaCie USB 3.0 PCI Express Card looks pretty interesting but I have no experience with their products ... any feedback would be appreciated.
There's not much magic in USB expansion cards. The card you mention will work fine as long as your motherboard has an accessible PCI-e X1 slot
Bought a USB2 4 port -pci expansion card from Dabs.com, put it in pc and the thing sat there dead ,no beeps,,not a glimmer of life.
Mailed the company,swopped it,put new one in,,still dead,tried alternative pci slots,took out other cards,no joy.
tried it in another machine,,whoopee do,worked fine.
Any suggestions? shouldnt all standard cards work in all machines? Am I missin somethin here?

I upgraded the memory in a computer, booted up the computer and new memory was accepted. I shut down the computer and installed an SMC network card in a computer. I went to boot the computer up and I got three high pitched beeps, followed by a pause, then a low tone noise. Everything boots up except the monitor will not come on. I have taken out the additional memory I put in, have taken this computer completely apart and reassembled it and when I boot it up I still get the beeps and the monitor will not respond. I have double checked all the jumpers. Any clue to what this could be?
From that pattern, it sounds like a video problem.
Might be the Video Cards is loose in the socket. Take it out and try reinstalling it again. Also, check to see if there is any dirt/etc. on the contacts. An old trick is to use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts. Likewise, blow out any dust/etc. in system.
Also, does it work without the SMC network card installed?
Another possibility is that it got a static charge when you were installing the network card.If that happened, the only thing that you can do is replace it.
Hope this helps

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread. I've created a new thread for your issue here. Thanks for your cooperation.

Okay so I have the Corsair Force GT Series 120GB SSD. Its port's are Sata 3 and well my motherboard is a MSI Pro-E long story short it does not have a sata 3 port. So my question is there anything out there I can buy that does have a sata 3 port like something that will hook on the PCI slot's or something. I basically dont wanna have to buy a new mother board but I still wanna get the amazing speeds because right now im getting half its peformance anyways please write back soon. If you give me a link to a product I prefer www.newegg.com and my max budget is $50.
You will need a free PCI-E slot. But this should get the job done.
I do not know much about the brand. But it does have 5 Eggs on Newegg.
I am working on an older MB, a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3. I want to use Sata 3 for connecting my SSD and hard drive. The only onboard SATA 3 connections are GSATA using a Marvell controller. I have read these are not very good and not as fast as Intel ICH10.
Do I need to buy an expansion card? If so, can anyone recommend one?

Ah... you've transported us all back to the bad old days of the IRQ error (Interrupt ReQuest).
At that time there were only 15 IRQs and it was quite common to need to manually change a new device's IRQ position so that it did not conflict with another device, freezing the system.
Modern PCs use the APIC system which greatly expands the number of IRQs and reduces the possibility of conflicts.
But this system relies on Plug-and-Play devices to automatically configure the IRQs. That is why the vast majority of people reading this will have never heard of it.
Can you get into your BIOS settings with this card installed?
You could try the card in a different PCI slot if you have one. That would sometimes change the IRQ in older systems.
You might also try doing a ClearCMOS procedure with the card plugged in. That may force the system to reassign IRQs for all the P&P devices and free up whatever IRQ that old card insists it has to have.

High guys, i have this PC model, which is great for me as its small and allows me to hook up my TV box to it, so i can watch tv through my PC.
However, I would love to be able to play some of the high end games which require a good graphics card, so I am looking for a slimline model with a single expansion plate (I have no idea what that means!)

Probably a simple one but im stumped.
Have a SSDIII drive with OS installed via a USB3 4 port PCIe expansion card with SATAIII ports.
Master OS drive is installed and working fine on the drive however is not showing up in BIOS for autoboot, so I have to manually press ESC to enter boot menu and select the SSD drive to boot which works fine.
Have checked all the BIOS advanced boot up devices can see all hard drives, USB drives, CDROMs and external USB drives but not the relevant SATAIII drive. I am presuming its due to the fact its on an expansion card and have not found a solution please help.
Card installed : PCI Express Card USB 3.0 4-port VIA (Transcend Information TS-PDC3 Combo PCI-e Interface Card 2 x USB 3.0 2 x SATA III ) Transcend Information TS-PDC3 Combo PCI-e Interface Card 2 x USB 3.0 2 x SATA III: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Plug the SSD into the first SATA port if you have one. Win7 is not meant to be installed on a USB drive.http://www.sevenforums.com/installation-setup/277960-windows7-ssdiii-pcie-expansion-card-not-showing-up-bios-boot.html
Hi. I have recently aquired a very old computer (8-9 years old). I am looking at replacing the old agp graphics card because it is not working properly and then sell the computer for quite a low price. Any way.
I have looked in the case and took the card out and I belive that the graphics card slot is agp 2x. The card has two slots in it leading me to belive that it is a universal 1.5v 3.3v card. I am just wondering what cards my computer would accept and whether a 4x card would work ok in a 2x card slot.
Any help apreciated.
just received my new stream 11. have barely unpacked it yet! quesition: I know that there's a slot for a memory card - I almost never use a camera, so I'm not totally familiar with that technology. Can anyone tell me what kind of card goes with that slot? What's the maximum capacity? thanks! w
Yes, that will work. -weshttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/which-card-should-I-buy-for-the-memory-card-slot-on-HP/td-p/4834450

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.
I seem to be a bit confused on something. Will a 4x AGP Ti4600 work in an 8x slot on a new mobo I'm considering? I'm just wondering cause I thought the voltage was different...The mobo I'm looking at is cheap, but I have to go cheap... http://www.pcchipsusa.com/prod-m848aluv21.asp
the 8X AGP slots are backward comapitable with 4X. but I would think twice before buying anything from PC chips.
I know this maybe a stupid question, but there might be a way that someone might just be able to help me, I hope :/
Anyways, I jsut recently bought a scsi cd burner with cable and scsi from a friend and went to install the card on my new computer only to realise that my motherboard does not have an ISA slot, which is what the scsi card requires
My motherboard is an Asus Socket A A7V-E board with 3 PCI slots free. Im just wondering if there is some way around this problem other than buying a pci card.
Maybe is there a ISA to PCI slot convertor or something out there?
Any help is greatly Aprreciated!
Thanks in advance, Lee.
Nope!....ISA is ISA and PCI is PCI.....there is no converter for these cards. Where did you ever find an ISA SCSI card....must be an antique.

I have an EMachine mn 2824 with a SD card slot on the front of the case. Today I bought a Canon PowerShot A400 camera. When I plug the card into the slot nothing happens. It works fine through the camera with a USB connection. What am I overlooking?
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.
Hello I have read several posts about this so I will explain my problem in detail I put the correct SD Card in the slot of my new Toshiba Satellite Lap Top I have used it several times before without incident I know the card works it is the right size and out get slot Card SD Cannot of I have removed it before without incident So I Cannot get SD Card out of slot clicked safely remove hardware It said the device can now be removed But when I try pressing it in it doesn t release There is no release button or little hole like on DVD drives etc I beleive the Windows operating system may have some way to keep this from releasing while it is Cannot get SD Card out of slot in use I can not access the drive right now as Windows Explorer does not show it as being there This is most likely because I requested to safely romove it Any ideas I don t feel like going to Best Buy and waiting on line for Geek Squad Thank You nbsp Cannot get SD Card out of slot
There are no ways to lock a card in the slot by the operating system, it's just stuck. Have you tried using something like tweezers to pull it out?

I need a new graphics card.My Mobo is an Asus P4S8x.While browsing through my BIOS settings(with a deep look of Puzzlement)I noticed I can set my Primary VGA BIOS to AGP or PCI.
Does that mean I could use a PCI-Express card? And if so would there be any advantage over using the AGPslot which is8X??
No. You can use AGP or PCI (not PCI express).

I ran some updates on an employee's computer and now when I start it up, I receive this error if the aircard is in the PC Card slot. I understand it's misinterpreting it as being a security card or whatever the case may be but I don't understand why or how to remedy it.
Anyone with a similar experience or that can shine a guiding light?

I just tried putting together a computer. The computer turns on but the screen wont turn on. I think this is because it doesn't have a graphics card, i dont know which type to put in because the motherboard didn't come with a manual so i am posting this pic to see if someone else does.
Ok, so i have a dell dimension 8250, it has 4 pci card slots and one agp. I am wondering about compatability of pci cards, it has the basic pci slots. The ones with a small connector then a medium sized one.
I want to know if the ones with three connectors on them fit or anything else. it seems that there are almost no cards that are for basic pci anymore.

Xigmatek Midgard Review - Page techPowerUp The PSU I intend to buy is Antec High Current Gamer W Antec High Current Gamer HCG- W Review - Page techPowerUp Check my profile specs if you need more information The question is Will the dual-slot card fit in my case with the other components I don't know much about these things thanks in advance
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.
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.
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...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/SIM-Card-slot-in-my-laptop-what-s-it-for/td-p/2693725

How do I assign a specific IRQ number to a specific PCI slot on Windows XP Pro 32 Bit system? From what I understand ACPI needs to be disabled, preferably by way of F5 during fresh XP Install.. After this is done, do I still require a motherboard that has a setting to manually set IRQ number in it's BIOS? If so does anyone know a Socket 1155 Motherboard with this feature?
To disable ACPI, do the following:
In Device Manager, right-click on "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC" under the "Computer" header and select "Update Driver".
Select "Install from a list or specific location (advanced)" and click Next.
Select "Don't Search. I will choose the driver to install" and click Next.
Select "Standard PC" and click Next.
Click Next and OK to the end.
I suggest, just in case, to create a system restore point before doing the above, and also to note down the existing driver.
If this is not enough, you might consider turning off ACPI in the BIOS. However, be warned that changing this BIOS parameter might require the re-installation of XP.
you need to If you want to manually set IRQ's boot into Setup (Bios)you have to enable that mode in the Bios of the Motherboard as well, if it is available. Windows is pretty good about assigning IRQ's and the Automatic allocation works pretty well. Why do you need to load a specific IRQ to a PCI port?

Hey there! This is my first post here, so bear with me We recently swapped out our EliteBook 8470p and 2170p's that had it's sim card slot behind the battery for use with the mobile broadband module (at least if i remember correctly for the 2170p).But now, on the 820 and 840 G1's I'm unable to find this. Shouldn't it be somewhere? I mean, how else are my customers going to use the mobile broadband module? Thank you.
With additional eyes from a couple of my colleagues we found it. I'm attaching a screenshot of the sim card slot on the 820. Maybe it will help others It was under the battery on these models as well, but with a barely visible SIM marking.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Sim-card-slot-on-the-EliteBook-820-840-G1/td-p/5069358
I want to purchase a specific sound card for my laptop (the Audigy 2 ZS Notebook card), but, according to Dell, I do not have the required PCMCIA slot. Instead, I have an Express Card slot.
Would the PCMCIA soundcard work in the Express Card slot? Some of the Dell technicians have said that it will not work, but they have been wrong in the past.
Are there any other options if the sound card would not work in the Express slot? Dell said something about buying an adapter, but they weren't sure as to what kind that would be.
Thanks for any help.
Will an 8x video card work in a 2x agp slot? I currently have a Nvidia GeForce 256 32mb 4x card and want to upgrade to a GeForce 5200fx 128mb 8x. I have a 2x agp slot.

Put a card in it and:
Look in Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager
Expand the "Universal Serial Bus controllers" and see if a USB mass storage device is listed.
Also look to see no yellow ? or ! are shown, indicating missing drivers.

Nope, completely different and incompatible slots. Can you exchange your vid card for an agp version? If not, then you will need a new mobo.
Hello, I recently discovered that my T520 has a SIM card slot (inside the battery slot) I tried to put my cell phone SIM card in it, but there's no reaction (no "New device connected" popup dialog). What should I do ? Is there a driver + software that needs to be installed ?Which one? Thanks in advance!
Go to Solution.
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
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.)
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.)
I have a camera card, wonder where to insert the card
Cullen, welcome to the forum. When requesting help you should always include the make/model (i.e. p6-xxxx) of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.

Haven't messed with this in ages. From what I can recall, some IRQ's are tied to certain slots. So you would need to move the hardware to a different slot. You can also change them via Windows: http://www.helpwithpcs.com/upgrading/change-irq-settings.htm

Are you cleaning out all the old drivers before switching all these cards? that can cause a card not to work right. But the reason you are switching to on board is because the bios does not detect the card. These motherboards- if they detect a card in a pcie X16 slot automatically disable on board graphics. So, it seems if you are switching to on board, it means BIOS isn't detecting the card is installed.http://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-cards/350413-card-not-working-first-pci-e-slot.html
Can anyone help me? I dont want to just yank it out as hard as I can. I'm using the A8N32-SLI Deluxe mb. Thanks in advance.
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.
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.http://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-cards/335712-pci-express-3-0-card-2-0-slot.html
hey everyone! been a while since i posted, real buisy. my dilema is this. i placed an sd card in the slot of my pavillion to add some pics for one of those picture frame w/ sd card and h.d. so it plays a slide show on the end table. well i inserted the card in the slot, the light came on,saying it was in the slot but the computer never saw it. i clicked on each individual drive (f,g,h,i,j) but it dont see it.so i removed the card and the light stayed on. what is the deal? i may just be a dope, but i dont know. i updated the drivers and looked at the device mgr. and it said it was working properly??????????? i dont get it.
I am buying a notebook, and was wondering what the Type II PC card slot refered to. I have found a few sites on google, they say that it is memory, but some of the brands also advertise they have DIMM slots, so i got confused on that. they also say it is plug and play, so that must mean that it is external, right. so is it like USB and firewire, or is it like a new floppy drive? I know a little about computers, so i really just want to know what i can put in this slot and how that helps me in the future.
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.
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.
This is a used Toshiba laptop I got a month ago. The previous owner said he never used the SD card slot. I know why, because it's not working. When I slide any SD card in, the light comes on for 1 second and then comes off. The card is not recognized. Needless to say, I know the cards are good because they work everywhere else, including a USB card reader I have.
I checked Device manager and I don't see a problem. I believe the SD card reader is the "USB Mass Storage Device"?
I ran troubleshooting and it found that there is a problem with PnP devices and an "unknown device doesn't have a driver". It didn't find a solution or the driver.
I went to the Toshiba site and downloaded a couple of card reader driver versions.
Can someone please tell me the sequence, I uninstall, reboot, install new driver?
There is a program called AIDA that you can download from here:
EVEREST Ultimate Edition - PC Diagnostics | Lavalys.com
Run it and under Windows Devices look for unknown devices. Click on the unknown device and it will tell you what the device is, probably the SD Card reader. Download the drivers for it from Toshiba and install.
I have a FujiFilm XD-Picture card, and I noticed for a while when I go to put my card into the card slots in the tower it would pop up a notice such as:
I guess what I am wondering is what is causing this message to come up? I always just exit it, and access the card a different way because when I exit the dialogue above another box pops up such as:
I guess my question is, what exactly does the Scan and fix mean on the first dialogue that pops up? Should this be done and does it have to do with the XD card itself, or the slot that I put it in?
All this message means is that the card was pulled from the PC or the camera at some point before a file operation was complete. It would be harmless and helpful to allow windows to 'scan and fix' on occasion.
Something else that would fix it would be to allow the camera to format the card the next time the card is empty.
I have a D-Link DWA-556 card, says it fits into any PCIe slot. My question...is there any advantage to plugging it in a PCIe x16 slot? Faster speed? Better connection?
I have the following:
PCIe x1 - open
PCIe x16 - open
PCI - open
PCIe x16 - video card
PCI -sound (Soundblaster card, not working right...have sound, no EQ, etc)
PCIe x16 - USB 3.0 card.
Does it matter where I stick the wifi card? It'll fit nicely into the top slot.
I haven't been shopping for sound cards yet...any help there? I'm on Win7 (64bit), have a great set of Logitech speakers and want some incredible sound.

It won't really fit.
No won't make a difference.
Just stick it in the x1 like a normal person.
Hello, I really need my computer to get an SD card slot (which it doesn't have )
How would I get one? Get a whole new computer or something? Or a whole new computer skin/box...
Where is the memory card slot on the Pavilion 550-126? The slot on the front does not look like the right size. Is there a way to get a diagram of the front and rear functions?

I have a Dell Inspirion 6000 laptop with a SD card slot, XP Pro, SP3. When I plug in 3 different SD cards (16MB, 1GB, 2GB) I get the same error in the device manager. I tried the following:
- 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.
