installing PCI expansion card providing LPT interface

Q: installing PCI expansion card providing LPT interface

I am installing a PCI expansion card that provides a second LPT interface for attaching an external ZIP drive to a computer. The system currently has one LPT interface, using the standard IO assignments to which a printer is attached. I Followed ESD procedures to install the card. After I physically installed in the system and restarted, the computer locked up when the Windows GUI interface loaded. The computer runs Windows ME. Can anyone give me a list of steps I should take to isolate the cause of the problem.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

A:What's the best USB 3.0 expansion card

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

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?

A:Installed Expansion Card

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

What expansion card can I use? I have the Acer ATC-605-UR51 desktop AKA the TC-605. I seem to have two expansion slots inside. One is smaller, and I used it for this USB 3.0 card. One is larger. I wanted to have some USB 2.0 ports and purchase this card, but it did not fit. What can I buy? Thanks!!!!

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?

A:PCI USB expansion card causes CMOS error

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.

You uploaded the data collection application instead of the data, please use this method instead.

We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

It is almost impossible to spot trends from a single DMP file so if you have more than one please upload them. If you only have one please wait until the computer crashes again then upload both.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Ok, so the ASUS MicroATX Guppy MB I got from a spare parts bin has no builtin SATA support. So I got one of these sata to IDE plugins that go on the back of the drive -

But, the machine will not install Win7 on that drive via this interface changer. It also won't backup the vista install to the drive. Seagate says they won't RMA the drive unless it fails on their seatools utility - which it does not that I can tell. Any suggestions on what might be some options. I would like to have a complete Win7 install on this spare drive just incase something craters.
This is a test machine by the way - it has nothing other than a web browser at this time so it would not kill me to do a clean Win7 install on it - I would just rather not.

In the scanner software setup, there should be a place where you have to choose which interface card to use....for example, on mine, I have an HP scanner, but did not install the HP interface card into my computer, as I have an Adaptec SCSI card already in when I run thru setup, I must select the Adaptec interface, rather than the default, HP......

There are regular PCI video cards, for sure. PCI-E is of course PCI-Express, but just PCI by itself is the same little slot you put in your sound card and modem.

There ARE mobos with no dedicated video slot, and thus PCI is needed for expansion.

Whenever I have to select a network card in a non windows 8 compatible application, I just get a blank list whereas using a virtual computer or my friends laptop (who uses windows 7) will show the full list of available network interfaces. So I was wondering if there was a method to make sure the program sees the network cards.

I'm an industrial engineer automation, so I have to be able to connect with the devices I have to program. I'm sick of using a virtual computer with slows down my device, I hope someone can help me

The programs are not officially supported, so if you contact them they just say: we can't help you, you have windows 8.

PS. Compatibility mode does not work.
PS2. This only happens with NON compatible windows 8 applications.

Our desktop PC won't connect to internet. Problem has occurred before and we've solved by going to Device Manager, found NIC, uninstalled the NIC and rebooted. Problem today is I can't locate either Device Manager or NIC. Can you help? Many thanks Gary

A:[SOLVED] Network Interface Card (NIC?)

Good to hear from you again, Gary. Pity it's because of a problem. You actually can't find (as in "it's not there") Device Manager??? Have you tried clicking "Start|Run" and typing "devmgmt.msc"? This command should start up Device Manager and then you should be able to uninstall/reinstall the NIC.

If this doesn't work then please let us know some more detail about the machine. When did it stop working? Did it stop after installing a Windows Update (perhaps SP3) or other software? Have you tried a System Restore back to before the problem occurred?

My desktop computer will not recognize the network interface card, the network card is built into the mother board. It was working fine, then after rearraning the office (the computer was unpluged) we set the computer back up, it booted up fine, but the network interface card was not recignized by the computer, the computer is hooked up to a "D-LINK Ethernet 5 port Switch" along with 2 other computers. Which are at present working fine.

also oddly enough, there is no active floppy drive on the desktop computer, but one appeared, when the network card disapeared.

We hooked a laptop to the same network plug that the desktop was hooked too. and when i looked at it this morning, same thing, the network interface card was gone.

any comment would be helpfull

A:Ethernet Network Interface Card

If it has a RJ-45 jack on it, then it supports 10Base-T.
The plug and jack look like this:

If it some more exotic hardware (Unix machine or some dedicated appliance), the same jack may be used for telephone or serial communications, but this is very unlikely.

Hey , sorry to bother, but could sumone please answer me a quick question...
(plz no suggestions on new/better motherboards or graphics cards)

So, i've decided to get a new graphics card , but i'm confused, wat is the meaning of the memory interface e.g. sum video cards state the memory interface is 64bit and sum say its 128bit, now wat is meaning of that?

I've got an old motherboard and i'm just looking for a video card upgrade so i've decided to get the Powercolor X1650, so it says the memory interface is 128 bit will this work on my old ASUS P5PE-VM?

Plz help im reli confused~!


A:Solved: Video Card Interface... (Quick Question)

That is the type of memory used on the card.

You do understand that the 1650 comes are either an agp or pci-e correct? You need the agp version to work with that board.

The next thing to consider is that card is going to use more power than the onboard type video that your mb is now using. Do you have a power supply that is capable of powering your video card? I would be looking for a min 350-400W with at least 20amp on the 12V rail.

If the slots are all the same size (lengthwise) ---- then it is usually denoting dual channel ability.

Here is the scenario

I provide support to the users remotely in different companies
I want one specific machine to get IP address from the same network and if in case the DHCP crashes i want it to get a static ip address from different subnet so that i should be able to connect to that machine remotely.

The above given scenario is for XP machine and not on linux

Please reply to this,as this will be a kind of disaster management for me.

Thanking you all in advance!!!

A:Binding two ip addresses to one Network Interface card in different Subnets

Yes you can bind more than one IP to a network interface. To do so, open the properties page for TCP/IP for your NIC. Then click the advanced button which will bring up another GUI. You should see at the top of the new window a box where your current IP is listed along with the ability to add, edit, and delete any IPs. Just click add and punch in the additional IP.

The problem you are going to have is if the new IP is on a different subnet (which would be case in most instances) is required to be routed outside of that local LAN segment you'll need to configure another router to be on that local LAN segment or you'll need to have a router which supports multiple subnets for routing. In addition, you'll have to add static routes to each configured workstation if you need to have traffic routed through the gateway for the new subnet. You can use multiple default gateway configurations on the Windows boxes. Microsoft says Windows will only use additional default gateways in a failover mode. But adding multiple default gateways to any endpoint be it workstation or server is never recommended unless you really know what you are doing.

A:Help providing my BSOD info

Sorry, but there is not a lot we can do to help you. There is obviously something seriously wrong with the hardware of your laptop.

My advice is to contact Lenovo again and don't take "No" for an answer until they are willing to replace your laptop; it should not be acting up like that.

If you want to back up your data, try this method:


One way of backing up data is via Ubuntu. Ubuntu is completely free, and has the advantage that it can be run off a USB stick or a CD - saving you having to install it on your hard drive.

You can get it from here: Download | Ubuntu

Step #2 on that page shows you how to create the USB/CD.

Once you get it running - copy the data from your hard drive to an external drive. Do not copy to the Ubuntu drive as the data will not be saved on shutdown.

I have an Acer Aspire M PT- running Windows While using a wireless mouse the mouse became disconnected from my computer not physically disconnected but an error message popped up saying the device was not recognized I pulled out the USB wireless transmitter plugged it back in and it re-connected with my computer Shortly thereafter the mouse became disconnected Ports still providing any devices, power recognizing but not USB again same thing as before with an error message and now no USB device will USB Ports not recognizing any devices, but still providing power connect to my computer I will get power from the USB port but it will never recognize devices and nothing shows up when I scan for new devices My computer has usb ports and neither port works I made sure to try multiple devices and check that these were working on other USB Ports not recognizing any devices, but still providing power computers I first tried deleting all of the USB drivers every driver listed under the quot Universal Serial Bus Controller quot section in the device manager and then restarting the computer but the problem remained I tried using a system restore point but the USB ports still weren t recognizing devices even after the restore though I am not the restore point was far enough back since I tried a lot of different things before doing the restore I changed the power settings for the USB port so that the power was always on still nothing I was always getting power through the ports it just wasn t recognizing devices I went to some computer techs and they had me change the boot order in BIOS and used a USB thumb drive to boot the computer into Ubuntu from the USB drive but once loaded USB devices wouldn t work in Ubuntu either Before booting from a USB we just tried plugging in the thumb drive which had a light built in that showed when the device was being read When the thumb drive was first plugged in the light would turn on for a second and then turn off after a few second the light would flash for maybe a second or two and then turn off again and wouldn t light up again not really sure what that means After about two hours of trying things they told me that it must be a hardware issue but I am not sure how I could load an operating system from a USB thumb drive if it was a hardware issue I am trying to hold off on a system refresh or anything that would wipe programs from the computer since I have several proprietary programs that are difficult to reinstall I contacted Acer and they wanted to charge me over for help so I would also like to avoid that Any help is much appreciated nbsp

A while back I had an old computer that basically would power on simply by providing power to it (we used one of those "power center" bases where you could turn everything on with the flick of a switch).

Both my current computers basically play dead when you give them power, they only boot once you manually press the "on" switch on the tower.

My question is, what exactly determines whether or not a computer powers on by simply having juice vs. having juice AND pressing the power button on the unit itself? Is it the mobo? The power supply? I'm thinking mobo, but I wonder if this is something I can select by fiddling with jumpers or something.

I'm planning to set this particular computer inside an arcade cabinet for MAME. Ideally, I want to be able to have the machine boot just by flipping on a surge protector. Any ideas?

I have used AirBnB some time ago but am very hesitant to providing a a AirBnB my privacy is ID personal pic. of concern? - use it today Which is a shame because I could save a bundle of money So I would appreciate comments on the following AirBnB has a policy that in order to rent a room I must provide either a link to my social media site that contains my picture or provide a picture of my personal ID such as a driver's license or passport AirBnB uses Jumio to validate IDs Jumio's privacy policy states Jumio may use the Personally-Identifying Information a user submits for any purposes related to Jumio's business including but not limited to providing you with Jumio's services and personalizing and AirBnB - is providing a pic. of my personal ID a privacy concern? improving those services for you This makes me very uneasy This could mean that Jumio if it wanted could sell my personal ID if it helped generate revenue for their business At the very least my personal ID would end up in the database of AirBnB and Jumio Makes me very uneasy So my question is Am I being paranoid in not wanting to provide my ID to AirBnB Is this a real privacy concern

A:AirBnB - is providing a pic. of my personal ID a privacy concern?

Your analysis of their policy is correct. And if it makes you very uneasy, you should not use them.
Why don't you use the first option: picture on social media? I suppose that is not going through Jumio?

Hello forum Gurus,

I Have a machine running Windows 7 x64 with two network interfaces. This machine is being used as a DVR and is connected to 4 ip cameras. The DVR software is Milestone Go.

When using interface one 3 out of the 4 cameras work without any problems but camera 4 constantly drops offline with lots of ping timeouts on average about %60 loss.

When using interface two there %0 ping loss on all 4 cameras but only Camera 4 has video the other 3 cameras have no video. That may be a DVR software issue but not positive.

Thank you in advance.

A:more ping drops on interface 1 than interface 2

The firewall is deactivated.

A:Vista machine not providing access to Win7 laptop

I have a very similar problem. I created a network between a win7 laptop and a Vista desktop. The Vista system can see the WIN7 Public and Default folders. I can see the Vista system, but when I try to connect to the Vista desktop it asks me for an account name, There is only one account on the system so I enter it and the password and it says invalid account or password. What is it looking for???

I have lost my cd rom windows will not acknowledge that it is there although on start up is is shown as being found. thanks for the help with the video card.

A:lost cd-romdrive while installing graphics card card doesn,t work right either

Welcome to the forum Ray and Julia,

Recheck all the cables and make sure they are plugged in properly.

When you install a new video card you have to remove ALL drivers for the old card.
Uninstall the drivers for the old card in Add/Remove Programs and if you don't have the option there, check in Control Panel/Device Manager and make sure there are not 2 cards showing under Display Adapters. If the old one is still showing, Highlight it and click Remove.

Uninstall the new video card drivers, restart then re-install the new drivers.

I have an Asus A N-E mobo which has optical and coax outputs for sound and an nForce chipset I just got a set of Logitech Z- speakers and couldn t get them to receive a signal from either digital output from my mobo They worked if I hooked them up Is causing providing system 5.1 is instability. fix? support there driver a Sound to the direct outputs but not the digital I called Asus and they told me to install the Realtek sound drivers instead of the nForce sound drivers which I was using So I did Now both the optical and coax jacks on my mobo output sound and with quite a bit more volume than the direct hookups but the sound quality in some games Half-Life Galactic Civilizations is noticably choppier However the biggest disappointment came when I fired up Battlefield When I actually get into the game the sound is absolutely awful None of the sounds I hear coming from the speakers is representative of anything that s happening on my screen It s horribly loud and the same sounds keep looping over and over again When I press ESC to quit the game my pc actually crashes to a blue screen of death which has never happend once in all of my years of using XP Pro which tells me that quot ati dvag quot is causing the problem and the driver is stuck in an infinite loop What fun I m not really concerned about fixing this problem with the Realtek driver because I m not happy with its performance in games that actually work and I can always switch back to the nForce driver and use the direct inputs Sound driver providing 5.1 support is causing system instability. Is there a fix? But I d really really like to get those digital outputs working but try as I might I couldn t figure out a way before I installed that crappy Realtek driver So to make a long story short is there a way to get the nForce driver or maybe a rd party driver to support my coax and optical outputs Sound driver providing 5.1 support is causing system instability. Is there a fix? nbsp

A:Sound driver providing 5.1 support is causing system instability. Is there a fix?

Good Evening Stinky, that really is technically "up there " stuff you have.
I got a headache just reading about it! The AI system is real space age stuff.

I did see a set of Nvidia drivers at
but I haven't played with 64 bit stuff with my TRS80 or 286 up to this point so wouldn't know.
As you mention the realtek drivers seem to be the most mentioned but I wouldn't be surprised if you have problems getting those drivers out. 30megs sounds like complicated drivers. Better you than me "gunga-din"!

During Microsoft's big announcement earlier today that Windows 10 will arrive this summer, the company also revealed that it is working with Xiaomi to test its new operating system among power users.

A:Microsoft is providing select Xiaomi users with a ROM to put Windows 10 on their Android smartphones

And who knows, perhaps this sort of thing could catch on to the point where handsets are sold as barebones devices that allow users to select the OS of their choice during the setup processClick to expand...

If you would have said that a year ago I would have laughed it off but not it seems like that might really be the way of the future.

There hasn't been any real innovation in the smartphone segment for the last few years, interchangeable parts on smartphones may very well be the way of the future, there just doesn't seem to be anyway to improve on what's already here without some drastic improvement like upgradability.

As far as making Windows 10 free to android users seems like a very smart move on Microsoft's part. There are currently more android phones in peoples pockets than any other smartphone. Making their OS free to them is a very easy way to get their OS in everyone's pocket.

I will be installing a PCI video card on a HP and I need to know how to install this.
I know you will need to go into the Bio and disable the onboard display drivers. but i dont know how to do that will someone help me.

Thank You,

A:Installing a PCI Video Card and disabling onboard card

I am almost pretty sure that your hp should auto detect the new video card and default to it. At least that has been the case in everyone that i have installed. try that first. Just remember to connect your video cable to that card after you install it and not the original on board video card.
