Here's my dilemma:

I have a generic $50 case, and no video card.

I am shopping for a cheap video card, so I can play some Half Life 2 type stuff.

before buying the card I tried to hook up a PCI network card, but there's no way to secure the card to the chassis with a mounting screw. I've messed around with video/sound/network cards many times before, but have never seen a case with no screws.

I've attached a pic of my expansion slots if it helps at all. As you can see there's no holes to screw a card down, and those funny looking clip things don't line up with anything.

I'm sure I'm missing something, but google can't even help me out cause I don't really know what I'm looking at, or what I need to fix this problem.

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!

A:expansion slot

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.

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:XC-704 Expansion Slot & Memory Upgrade

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...  James

Dear Community,
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?

A:Dell E7250 SSD Expansion Slot

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.

A:TC-705-EB53 expansion slot question

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.

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.

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.

This is the strangest thing I've seen in the past years of using computers I have an Acer Aspire - laptop that came with windows but I'm very picky and I wanted Windows xp back so I went onto Acer's website and won't mouse USB slot USB first other in works any slot, in only work but USB downloaded all of the windows xp drivers and then formatted the laptop to Windows XP with intergrated Service Pack The computer works just fine except for one very strange oddity - the USB mouse I'm using only works when plugged into the first USB slot it will refuse to work in the other USB slots I'm using a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer USB which is my favorite mouse and I USB mouse only works in first USB slot, but won't work in any other USB slot have of them at home When I was formatting the laptop USB mouse only works in first USB slot, but won't work in any other USB slot I had the mouse plugged into the first USB slot and now that is the ONLY slot it will work in If I plug it into the other usb slots the red laser will come on which means it's getting power but it will not move the cursor and clicking either of the mouse buttons won't do anything When I have the Device Manager open and I plug the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer mouse into the first USB slot the 'Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer ' entry will appear in BOTH the 'Human Interface Devices' tab and also the 'Mice and other pointing devices' tab However when plugging the mouse into the other usb slots the 'Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer ' entry will only appear in the 'Human Interface Devices' but NOT the 'Mice and other pointing devices' tab I could just go about my business using the first usb slot for the mouse but this little strange problem is pissing me off hugely as I might want to switch the mouse to another USB slot based on how I have the laptop positioned on a desk or other surface I should also note that the 'Human Interface Devices' tab has a 'HID compliant device' entry in it that isn't present on my desktop computer and my mouse works on any of the usb slots on my desktop computer I wonder if this is the problem I tried disabling this entry but it doesn't help any A final point to note is that I have many other usb devices such as flash memory sticks camera card readers external harddrives gps devices and they all work perfectly fine no matter which usb slot they are plugged into Very strange indeed Is there anyway to make my mouse work in any of the other USB slots

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?

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?

Anyway Should I leave my moniter plug in the AGP slot video card or put it where no video card is but goes right into the computer

and no there is no plug that goes into the PCI slot

I hope this is understanable

i have had trouble with my computer after cleaning it (can of compressed air) it would boot to log in screen then go black on the monitor or it would blue screen and restart.

after figuring out it was a RAM problem i tried another stick of RAM but same problem so i guess its the actual slot it goes into, i only have 2 on my motherboard lucky one of them is working still.

has anyone had this problem or know of a way to fix it, i am wondering if some of the canned air/gas became a liquid from spraying to close and got in it.

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.

Hi Mittho and welcome to the community,
Yeh, they're specific screws and since there's no Hardware Maintenance Manual for your machine, it would be tough to tell you what size to get.
However, it's not a bad idea to keep some extra screws around in case things like this happen.  If this is an actual pic of the screws, it looks like at least one has a stripped head on it, but there should be enough extras to get you fixed.

A:motherboard screws

The age of the screws won't matter but the thread type might. Just do a test of the threads before you put the mobo in. If the screws go in nice and easy then they'll be just fine. You can also just grab a couple of nylon spacers and insert those into the screw holes on the mobo so that the board is nicely supported.

"Charlie Demerijian at the Inquirer got a look at some insider specs on the PS3, and says, Sony screwed up big time with the Cell processor; the memory read speed on the current Devkits is something like 3 orders of magnitude slower than the write speed; and is unlikely to improve much before the ship date. 'Local Memory Read Speed ~16Mbps, No this isn't a Typo.' Demerjian says when the PS3 comes out a full year after the XBox360, it's still going to be inferior: 'Someone screwed up so badly it looks like it will relegate the console to second place behind the 360.'"

My P50 is shipping today! Getting excited. I plan on replacing the HDD (ordered the 500GB spinner) with a Samsung 850 SSD. I also plan on adding a Samsung 950 M.2 SSD to one of the empty M.2 slots. I ordered the M.2 SSD tray from Lenovo part # 4XB0K59917. My question is if anyone knows whether the M.2 SSD tray from Lenovo ships with screws I need to secure the drive and the card in the computer? The Hardware Maintenance manual indicates a 3mm nylon coated screw. I?ve tried to find the screw kit (OOUR839) for the P50 on Lenovo?s site with no luck. Does Lenovo not sell them because they consider them for repair only? Stupid question but, does anyone know where I can get a couple of the correct screws in the US? All of the screws on eBay are coming from Hong Kong. Thanks

A:Screws for M.2 SSD Install on P50

EazyE, this is my 1st post, but I've been following this P Series forum since November almost daily.  I will be ordering a P50 later this year once the faster E3-1535 CPU becomes orderable online within the North American market (this faster CPU is already available to the rest of the world - i.e., TopSeller P50 model 20EN0009++ - but not in North America yet).  Nevertheless, I have already ordered and received two M.2 SSD trays on Friday.  I confirm that each tray comes with 1 screw to attach the M.2 SSD to the tray.  Although I don't have a P50 yet, I do recall another message in this forum stating that the P50 comes with 2 screws included to attach up to two M.2 SSD trays to the computer.  So, once you receive your P50 and your M.2 SSD tray, you'll have all the screws you need to secure your M.2 SSD to the P50.

Well, I have a ATi Radeon X1600Pro and I have been having some problems with it so I am just going to send it back and hopefully get a replacement from ATi. HOWEVER, due to overheating problems I decided to install a custom fan on it, which worked somewhat nicely, but in order to prevent them from knowing I voided the warrenty by doing so I need to put the stock fan back on.

Now the problem is I lost 2 of the screws that mount the fan on the board and I am having the time of my life trying to find replacements. I search at a couple of computer stores but to no avail , as on the interent here too.

Any suggestions?

Ok Im about to mount a motherboard into a case. (Thanks to all who helped me choose a price efficient mobo). The case which is about a year old came with little gold plated screws that screwed into the holes where the motherboard would then rest on top and screw into those screws. The screws were hollow. Ive lost thme all except for one which is useless. Can I just rest the mobo on this part of the case and screw it onto the metal frame where the holes exsist or do I need those screws. If I do where can I get replacements? I can take a picture with a webcam if needed to show the screw but that could take a few days as the computer isnt being built at my house. Thanks all

A:Yoga 2 Pro screws falling out

I had enough of the "loose screws" threads all over this forum. So, here is a summary of everything we know so far in the forums about the "loose screws" problem on Yoga laptops (definitely Yoga 2 Pro, possibly others): There IS a problem; Lenovo denies it and will refuse warranty claims of damage RESULTING from screws falling out; prior to any damage, Lenovo WILL replace the screws in-warranty but you have to mail in the laptop; Lenovo WON'T mail you screws unless you escalate and get someone nice, in which case it's been known to happen; YES you can just buy replacement screws and screw them in.Here is the exact screw you is a "wafer head" torx M2 screw, with a 4.5mm length. In one thread, a guy got an M2 screw with 5mm length at a hardware store and said it worked, and another got a 5mm at, and the hardware manual specifies 5mm, but the 5mm ones have a different screwhead, and I measured mine and if you want to be 100% precise it is in fact 4.5mm long. (You measure from the base of the head down to the end.)Here is the exact screwdriver you is a torx T5. It usually comes in a kit of several, like in the above link. Search if you want to find other brands and options; this was just the cheapest one I found.If you want to add locking compound to keep the screws in a little longer, this is the cheapest I want Loctite 242 or 222, or some other brand equivalent. Some folks recommend 222 because it has slightly less locking strength, but a) it's twice as expensive, and b) haven't we already established we need MORE locking strength?Here are all the forum threads I found after a quick search:User complains of the screws falling out and finds a list of screws in a manual, which isn't that helpful since it doesn't say which is which: has screws all out, gives up and sends it in for warranty repair. When it happens again, he escalates case and gets screws sent to him: discovers and orders replacements:'s entire laptop case splits due to loose screw, Lenovo makes him pay for it anyway: complains about loose screws: Hope that helps!

Can anyone tell me where to purchase some screws for my Dell Inspiron 8100. I had some work done on it and now there are 2 screws that do not fit very well in the back and one has fallen out and is missing. I could easily replace them if I knew where to find out the right size and purchase them.


A:Missing Dell Screws

This site has a $2 and an $8 misc parts offering. I have wasted time trying to find screws or standoffs at Radio Shack and other likely places. They don't seem to want to deal in that low profit area.

The standoffs in the $2 assortment are not the commonly used ones today.

They will ship in one box and shipping is more resonable if you have more than that one item. You might want to give the rest of what they offer a look. They have many hard to find items. If your not in a hurry for the screws, you could request a catalog first. One will be included in your order but it is a little late at that point.

I am going to be changing out my motherboard in the near future. I will be putting in a ATX and I now have a Micro ATX. As luck would have it, I have lost the extra screws and standoffs I will need. I have written my case manufacturer about getting more, but on the chance I don't receive any from them, do you think the standoffs are pretty standard and I could just pick some up that would fit my case or would you think they would vary in size depending on the case. Thanks,

A:Motherboard Screws and Standoffs

Unless you have proprietary hardware (such as used by Dell, for example), you will find these are standard. You should be able to pick up these up from your local computer hardware shop, or alternatively online, such as this from Amazon.

Hi: Are you planning on replacing the standard 3.5" hard drives with SSD's? If so, all you should have to do would be to get a 3.5" to 2.5" hard drive adapter and use the 4 Hard drive isolation grommets from the mechanical hard drive, transfer them to the adapter, and use the standard notebook hard drive screws that either come with the adapter or SSD's to mount the ssd to the adapter. Otherwise be prepared to pay big bucks for the screws listed on page 24. I've installed 2 SSD's in my 8200 Elite and 8000 Elite CMT's by using the method I described.

Next, check out accessory section. you can call them, if they don't have them, they will be able to order them, or aim you in the right direction...tell'em Greg sent ya (kidding)

Have installed Windows XP SP2 on one of my PC's and now I can't access my other computer in My Network Places.

For example if I attempt to do a net use i.e. \\computername\sharename it fails, however if I attempt to do \\ip address of other computer\sharename this works OK.

Also trying the net view command fails with error 6118 "A list of servers for this workgroup is not available".

Suspected it might be the Windows Firewall that comes with SP2, so have disabled this but it still doesn't work. Also stopped and restarted the Computer browser service on both PC's but still no joy!

Anyone out there had this problem or know how to fix it (other than uninstalling SP2 which I'm very tempted to do at the moment!)

My School District purchased around 120 Acer Chromebook 13s in June of last year. We've noticed over the course of the year that some were missing screws from the bottom casing. We had this issue before with a different brand last year. After talking with other local school districts, this seems to be a wide problem when it comes to Chromebooks (HP, Dell, Acer).  We would like to get these screws replaced, but I can't get Acer to just send me some replacements. They want me to send in each unit for repair (even under warranty this is crazy as it costs us ~$7/unit to ship to Acer). I was wondering if any of you resourceful people out there know the screw size for this particular model?  TL DR Acer is being stingy with replacement screws and I am trying to find out the size I need for the CB5-311 bottom casing screws.

I repair and refurbish used laptops and I have had a number that could easily be fixed with nuts when the plastic part of the case becomes stripped or broken, but I can never find them in the appropriate size.

My current scenario is a dell laptop where the metal screen frame connects to metal hinges by screws that go through them into plastic, but the plastic is stripped and broken. If I can put a nut on the other side instead the problem should be solved. Local hardware stores here only have standard sized nuts, not metric, and extensive web searching has gotten me no results. Maybe I'm just using the wrong terms, but as far as I can find there are no nuts for 2.5mm laptop screws.

Any suggestions?

A:Nuts for 2.5mm laptop screws?

Try here: M2.5 x .45mm Hex Nuts. The M2.5 is the thread diameter of the nut. The only downside is you have to buy 50 nuts at a time but the cost shown is for all 50.

A couple of screws have worked their way out of the bottom of my Aspire 7551, particularly one on the left hand corner with the power connector.  The result being that the connection is between cord and connector is tenuous.  I cannot find a list of the screw sizes for this Acer model anywhere and do not know which size to order to tighten the laptop body. Can anyone shed some light on this?
