Preferred Solution: Adding Network Card to Desktop?

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.)

This sounds really noobie of me but is it possible to improve local network transfer speed by adding a 2nd network card. I was planning to connect one exclusively for lan transfers and another one hooked to a separate wireless router.

Right now only a maximum of 3 users can stream SD videos off the PC before it gets a little choppy.

The pc in question runs on windows 7 and it's board has built in gigabit, I happen to have a spare gigabit card.

A:Will adding a 2nd network card improve local network transfer speed

That won't really help the way you are describing the problem, although adding access points will help with streaming to wireless devices.

Although there is a setting in Group Policy that allows you to use two connections at the same time, I don't believe it will help in this situation.

I've done many HD movie streaming tests on my system.

I can stream from my media PC to at least 7 other machines at the same time, 4 wired, 3 wireless, plus my TV, and have no problems at all, no skipping, no freezing, even with the same movie in the same place or with 8 different movies at once, my TV is connected to my media center PC so counts as the 8th one.

This is Gb LAN, and 300Mbps wireless but even the 65Mbps limited laptop has no problem.

I'm not really sure why you are seeing these limitations but it may be the router.

A:Adding A 98 Desktop To Home Network?

That's kind of asking a lot but it might be worth investigating if wired is not an option. I'd be pretty sure about finding out if there are drivers specifically for Windows 98 and that they are reliable, because nothing will blue-screen Windows faster than unsupported wireless drivers.

Here's the situation:

Running Windows 2000 Pro, have 2 network card installed. The first network card I have installed is plugged into 2 other computers through a switch and is segmented from the entire network. The reason why I'm installing the second network card is to have Internet and printing purposes. Anyways, I installed the second nic and plugged the network cable into my other switch which is tied into my network. I entered in all my settings IP, Gateway, DNS, but when I try to access the internet can't get on. So to me it looks like it's looking at the default network card which isn't connected to the Internet. So how can I configure it to see the second network card for Internet etc. Any help would greatly appreciated.

A:Adding a second network card question

Suspect you are using the same network address on both network cards?

For example can't have one card and the other on one and on the other would be OK.

Hello Friends,

I have a win xp system which connects to internal network & Internet.
The problem I have is, for each work i need to change the IP address.

Ex: For internal network the ip should be
To connect to internet the ip should be

Now I want to be connected to both internal network as well as internet at the same time. So what should I do ?

* I can not add another physical network card.
* I can not change the IP's of any other system or config servers etc... (as it is used by our internal application, doing so will make a mess.)
* I have the admin rights so any software changes to my system can be done.

So i was hoping to add a virtual network card, and configure it to the new IP. So can that be done ? if so how ?

I happened to come across a Linksys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter recently. I don't have a laptop right now, but I decided to take it. I have a computer built about 4 years ago by someone I don't know very well and unfortunately, after reinstalling windows and I can't find the ethernet driver, making an internet connection impossible.

I was wondering if I would be able to open up this desktop and install the wireless card. Since I know the brand, I would be able to find the drivers and hopefully get the internet working. Thanks!

Also: Strangely, the old computer connects to the internet when running Ubuntu. Somehow, I guess it doesn't need the ethernet drivers. Anyway I could get this working on Windows?

A:Solved: Wireless Notebook Network Card on a Desktop?

You would need yet another piece of hardware to use that adapter on a desktop computer. You'd need an adapter that accepted that card and then connected to an available PCI slot on the desktop. It would be cheaper and easier to just buy the right adapter instead.

Since there's nothing wrong with the adapter seeing as it works fine in Ubuntu, You need to do some troubleshooting on the Windows side. I don't see any reason to purchase anything yet.

Since the modem has an open Ethernet port in the back, I was wondering if it might be possible to plug in a networkable external hard drive and have it available to both of the laptops wirelessly.

A:Adding a new desktop

Hello Edd, and welcome to Vista Forums.

It sounds like you may be getting Windows Switcher (aka: Flip 3D) and Switch User (aka: fast user switching) mixed up.

Windows Switcher allows you to flip through your open windows to quickly select one.

Switch User allows you to switch (log on) to a different user account (desktop) on your computer without having to close any programs and files first in the user account that you are currently logged on to, and then be able to switch right back to the first one where you left off.

Hope this helps,

question as to adding more memory for a OptiPlex 740 desktop
Using Windows XP Pro, processor is 2.71 Ghz
If adding one 2 gig non ECC dimm, task manger says only 1.75 G
if adding a second 2 gig dimm ( 4 gig total) task manger only shows 3.25 gig
adding 2 512 Meg (1gig) (total 5 gig) task manger then only shows 2.75 gig
Looking a BIOS each time shows the correct amount of RAM but why is not all the memory added being shown or used, why showing less memory then installed and reporting even less when I went to 5 gig total ?
Also I'd like to up the CPU processor speed as I do lots of Excel spreadsheets with large amount of data is very slow processing with OEM CPU
Can this be done, if so what type of socket can be used, would the BIOS support it and what processor, wattage and max speed would be allowed ?

Check to see if you have a PCI slot. Some newer PC's only have PCIe slots and if they have a PCI slot it is a "bridged" slot to the PCIe bus and many PCI devices will not work or work properly on a bridged PCI slot.

I would check and see what others with that software are using.

A:Help adding a PC to a network.....

Yes, you can go back and run the Network Setup Wizard again.

But, easier if you have the XP system disk--just stick the Windows XP system disk in your ME's CD drive. When it comes up you choose (I'm not sure of the exact words) "do other tasks." One of the other tasks will be the Network Setup Wizard.

[Just make sure you don't go down some path that formats the disk or installs Windows!]

Thing is, I'm not sure if the power supply can take it - I'm kind of a newb to this stuff. Is there any way you guys could tell me what my power supply is and if I'll need another one?

Thanks in advance.. I really appreciate any help.

A:Adding a new gtx card into the machine Help

I looked up your motherboard. Unless you've replaced the mobo (and I'm assuming you have not if you're posting here) you have a IPISB-CU (Carmel2) motherboard in that machine. The unfortunate news is that you will not be able to use a GTX 950 with this motherboard. The reason? This bios on this motherboard is legacy and the newer graphics cards require UEFI. There is no update or fix for this from HP. Your option is to either find a graphics card that will run with a legacy bios or replace the motherboard. I just came across this problem myself. I have an h8-1114 with the same motherboard. I purchased a GTX 960 FTW assuming that HP was providing updates for their hardware (bios). After hours on the phone with Nvidia we finally figured out it was the bios. And a call to Evga quickly confirmed it was the bios and there is no fix for it and HP isn't providing an update the problem. Personally I'm working on a limited budget but the original video card that came with this machine isn't an option for me (it's been log ago given to my daughter for her machine to play Minecraft). I'm using an old GTX 260 we had laying around and can't play some of the games I enjoy because of it. I will be replacing the mobo and will NEVER EVER again buy a pre-built computer.  HP has completely disgusted me with this machine. This is not the first issue I've had that would not have existed if I had built the machine myself. Here's the mobo I've picked to replace HP's peice of garbage that should be compatable with all the other hardware you have (your RAM, CPU, etc.).

but i still running out of usb port- i have a usb hub- with my printer connected to it, but ti tell me my printer would be faster if connoted to a usb 2.0
i do but the 2 plug usb hub im use, may not be be usb2.0 useable

on my mobo i have 2 usb 1.0 plug and 2 other usb plug hook up to MOBO use a cable and one of the back plate a pcl card ) that one i will soon get rid of)

my question is i like to add a other pcl usb 2.0 card to my compter, i really do not see any problem in do so, but it never hurt to ask first- a card that has more plug on it-- like maybe 4 lol

A:adding a other pcl usb 2.0 card to compter

You can stick as many USB 2.0 cards as you have PCI slots for into the system. I prefer the cards with the NEC USB 2.0 chipset, they are more compatible for me. I've had a number of issues with the ALI and VIA chipset USB 2.0 cards.

Hi All,
I have an older Premio 200F computer, think thats what model it is not sure.

Only had 64mb of memory,2-32mb cards . I purchased a new 128mb card. These are all DIMM cards.

When I installed the 3 cards the Performance only showed 96mb.
I moved the cards around to all the sockets and still 96mb.

Now I have one 128mb card and one 32mb card= 160mb of memory.

Looking at documentation of the premio computer I should be able to have
256mb of memory.
There are a total of 5 sockets, 3 DIMM, and 2SIMM
Anybody have any ideas that would help me with this problem??

Windows 98se

A:adding a new 128 memory card

256MB total divided by 3 slots equals 85.3MB per slot, but they don't make 85.3MB modules so there's an error somewhere.

Does the 128MB chip work with each 32MB stick and show the right amount? If you put in both each stick by itself does it show the correct size for each one?

You may also want to exchange the new stick for a different one. Make sure its a close match to the existing RAM, ie. PC66 or PC100, Chips on one side vs chips on both sides of the stick.

You should also run a Memory testor once you get a combination that works:

I don't need top end performance, just a decent improvement. Would a budget card even improve the performance at all? Also, if I add a card, do I have to reassign the memory that was used for the integrated card to the processor, or does that happen automatically? TIA

Months ago I downloaded Just Cause 2 from Steam, but I had a few problems playing the game in full screen. I was searching for a solution on YouTube and I found a person who told basically told the viewers to add a new display and use that in order to get the full screen working when playing Just Cause 2. So I did that, it worked perfectly fine, but after I changed back to my regular display I noticed that the icons rearranged themselves for some reason. They rearrange every time I wake the PC up, turn it off/on and when I restart it. This has been bothering me for quite a while and now I believe it's time to fix it. If you look below you'll find a link to the YouTube video, so you can see what I actually did. You can stop watching at 0:40 as the Steam part doesn't matter.

My company purchased three HP ProDesk 600 G1 SFF desktop computers recently, upgrading from three Optiplex 380s. The office uses an older, networked dot matrix printer. Some of the software that prints to this printer requires a Parallel Port driver assigned to LPT1, and the ProDesk 600 G1 does not come with a Parallel Port built-in (it has a spot on the motherboard where one can be added, judging from the motherboard layouts I have found online for this product). I need to purchase expansion cards that will work with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and can be added to the hardware on this desktop computer. I just need to know which Parallel Port card to buy. I find the HP support site rather complicated and could not find a place where I could investigate what parallel port expansion cards would work with this desktop. All help is appreciated.potterjazz

Now from a Google there are no drivers for that dongle and it should be recognized in Devices and Printers see my pic of my mouse there mind you my laptop has an internal Blu tooth so I cannot say for sure if the dongle will be there. Also if you see my other pic go to there and see what is listed you can access that through Control Panel or there should be a small pointer lower right on the taskbar that you can click to "Customise" and just look through the listing to see if it is there.

Did you try waiting a while , then rebooting, to see if the laptop could 'see' the other computers? Sometimes it can take a while before the router finally 'wakes up' and realizes there's another computer out there.

As for the printer, did you install the drivers included in Vista on the new laptop (don't use the disc that came with the printer unless it's a newer one that is Vista compatible). Just went through this with my new computer over the weekend.

Double check your cable. Make sure you didn't bend any pins.

I just bought a usb 2.0 2 port USB PCMCIA card. When I try to install it into the slot, my laptop automatically shut off. I think it has something to do with the driver, but I'm not sure what. It came with a cd with the driver on it, which I believe I've loaded correctly (pretty simple), but after I shut down, put in the card, then start up, just as windows is starting everything will shut off. I can go into safe mode and it will go in fine, but as I mess around with enable and disabling drivers, it will again shut off. Please help!

Here is my computers Hardware:

So I was bought this computer for a gift and I was wondering if it would be worth it if I buy a high-end Graphics card for my PC. I would like to play games like; Skyrim,the Witcher 2 Portal 2 ect. On moderate to High but my question is that if I do buy a graphics card would that improve my gameplay experience with my current hardware or would my CPU or any other hardware bottleneck with a nice graphics card.

What would be the best graphics card i could get for my PC that wouldn't be over doing it?
I already have a 700W PSU that I could install if it is worth it to buy a graphics card.
