Opening the expansion slot ports on a Tower 3620.

Q: Opening the expansion slot ports on a Tower 3620.

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!

We have a Dell Precision Tower 3620 and have purchased a firepro W7000 to install. only problem is the 6 Pin connector provided by dell has a different pin arrangement. the middle top pin as you look at the plug is square instead of the usual rounded corner pin so will not go into the socket.
Anyone know why this would be?

The only video cards validated in the Precision T3620 did not need the power supply lead. So this may be why the 290w PSU is lacking the correct cable? Perhaps another Precision T3620 can open their case and also check the PSU cabling.

I have a Dell Precision Tower 3620 that was purchased May 2016. I'm looking to use the Thunderbolt capability but can't find the addin card that I'm supposed to use. This unit was advertised as having Thunderbolt capability but I can't seam to find how to take advantage of it.

It looks like its an add-on card that you purchased with your build.  If you didn't select it at time of purchase, then it didn't come with it.  You can always buy a PCIe add on card yourself and throw it in the computer.

Last night i was updating the bios on this 3620 and it froze at 100%, after 30 minutes or so i forced to reboot.
Now always as an Amber light blinking when i connect the power cable and only the fan starts to spin for a few seconds and turn off in a loop.
I already try CMOS reset - nothing
Jumper in service mode - nothing
Is there any way to flash a bios from an USB drive. I've been reading a lot of foruns and all talk of some switch /writeromfile but doesn't work on this dell bios setup.
Does any one have an idea for me to try?

Thank you very much

Hi All,
We have bought a Precision Tower 3620 with an External Graphic card.Nvidia Quadro K620 graphic card.
The Graphic card has one DVI port and one DP port while the on board card has 2xDP and one HDMI.
We have to connect two monitors to this computer . We have been able to connect the monitor to external DP port. But for some reason the DVI port is not working.

So we decided to use the on-board card but it is not working....we removed the external graphic card and set BIOS to Intel Graphic card but still it is not working (I have only tested the DP port at the moment)....

So what do you think the reason might be?

Thanks in advance for the help

I ordered a 3620 with 2 hard drives configured for RAID 0. It has already shipped. I realize now that I made a mistake and should have ordered the RAID 1 configuration. I realize this will reduce my total drive capacity.
Also, I'm planning on adding a 3rd HDD that I do not wanted to be included in the RAID. Any help on switching RAID levels and adding the 3rd drive would be appreciated. I'm expecting the machine to arrive tomorrow.

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

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.

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.

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.

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?

A:XD card or the XD slot in tower?

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 run into a problem with my PCI Expansion Ports

I have been using a 3 port USB PCI Card. The other day, any device plugged into the card quit working.

Did some troubleshooting, and found out that the card is receiving power only, and is not transmitting any data. Some of the USB Devices I have - Printer, Flash Drive, USB Hdd, USB Wifi Adapter, Mouse, keyboard, Sidewinder Control stick, webcam, and a UPS.

I plugged each one into the card, and they all received power, but no data. Windows is not detecting that the device is plugged in, but the device does light up the LED's

I do not have any other PCI cards to test to see if it is the Card, or the ports that are bad. It is doing the same thing on both of the PCI slots on my Motherboard.

All of the other USB ports are working fine.

Without testing in another computer I'd assume the card is bad. I went a different way, put a 4-port USB Hub in the floppy drive bracket on the front of the computer, connects to the internal power supply and the data cable plugs into a USB port on the back. I do have a couple of the PCI Add-in cards salvaged from other computers but like the front ports for accessibility.

My modem-router is in bridged mode (everything is disabled except internet), i have disabled windows firewall i have taken my firewall offline (until this issue is resolved) but still no one can access my server (they can't even join a game if i create a server)

if i go to port checker it says connection refused on all ports except port 80? how do i force open the ports?

i called my ISP and they say they should be open and there not blocking any ports.

I have a static ip address, 24Mbit up 2.5Mbit down.

when i run my filesharing program (for sharing files between my and my clients) and they try to download a file from me it says it will take (99years, 99days, 99 hours) now i don't really have that long to wait

edit: and yes my network properties are configured manually (and not on auto detect) i have no problem accessing the internet myself

A:Opening ports, i have the firewall disabled but ports are still blocked

It would be better to open the ports in the running firewall than to turn it off. Firewalls load drivers, running or not. Many firewalls block everything by default when they are turned off so that the machine is protected during boot.

You may need to uninstall some firewalls to get them to open all ports.

A:Problems with usb ports and express card slot

It sadly does seem quite likely you have caused a problem with the motherboard usb 'power grid' It is possible the bios has simply stuck the system into a protected mode in order to protect the hardware inside.
The only way I know to check that this is the case is to power down, unplug the laptop and remove the battery for about an hour, then attempt starting back up with no usb devices connected, and see if proper functionality returns. It could simply be as of the moment the laptop has never fully shutdown and been given a chance for the hardware to reset after the fault caused by the faulty plug.

Sadly in your current situation that would probably be the best case scenario.

But my PC has a SIM card slot on the right side (side opposite to the microphone and the headphone)

Has anyone in the community already succeeded in removing the back cover for this confiuration ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Did you manage to remove the cover?

There is no other method to remove the cover? if your notebook is equipped with SIM card, remove firstly the SD card (bridge media dummy card), then SIM card (you will need to insert a slender object into the hole of the sim tray) and then the 14 screws from the cover at the bottom of the unit.

That?s all?

2. If not, Can you guide me how to open my ports properly?
3. Why am I receiving different answers in the two port testing sites?

Thank you very much in advance!

ok so i got madden06 and im having one hell of a time opening the ports on my router to allow me to play onlineive been having to unplug the router to play. i found that i have to open
HTTP: 80 (outbound only)
HTTPS: 443 (outbound only)
TCP 13500, 28400-28499, 32768-65535 (outbound only)
UDP 1795, 1797 (inbound and outbound)

the problem is i logg onto my router (D-link DI-524) but i dunno wtf virtual server? application? firewall? and suggestions anyone who has done this and could step me through would be great.

A:need help opening ports!

Don't bother with any of the outbound stuff - it is all enabled by default.

In router config you forward the ports in the virtual server section. Just put in the port (you have to make two rules to have both 1795 and 1797), type (UDP), your computer's IP adress (it has to be static) and optionally the port on your computer (the same as before).

Hello all,
I have a Linksys WRTG54 router which doubles as my firewall. Up to this point in my life I've been to afraid to dabble in opening ports and haven't really had any reason to do so, but I may be getting into bittorent soon.

As it relates to this or other possible reasons one might want to open one or more ports, am I correct in assuming that if you open ports to things you want that they are wide open for anyone else to use as they see fit? How is it that all you computer geeks out there (a term which I use endearingly) are opening your ports all the time and not getting hijacked?

Thank you

Some questionable personal security systems expose their users by attempting to "counter-probe the prober", thus revealing themselves. But your system remained wisely silent.

I've been trying to play 'Quake Live' but I can't connect to a multiplayer game.

I know that the problem is my firewall. If I turn it off it works perfectly, but of course I'd rather have it on but allow the game to communicate. I've allowed all the programs associated not to be blocked but this doesn't work.

Opening a port is what I think I need to do, but I have fairly limited knowledge about how to do this, which port to open or how safe doing it would be.

I'd appreciate any advice, cheers.

Hi Soutel, welcome to TSF...

the exact method for forwarding ports will depend on your router so it will be a bit difficult to give you the instructions. However, check out the website in the following link as it should have more details for you:

All you need to do is select your router make/model and then you should be able to choose the application/game you are trying to forward ports for and then follow the detailed instructions given.

Hope that helps.

Hi all.

In order to play a multiplayer game I need to open ports on both my firewall and router, and hey presto, it works and I can even create servers.

However, is this a security risk? I read on this forum that all ports should be "stealthed", but when I open them on the router+firewall a few ports come up on the GRC port scan as "closed" as expected instead of stealthed.

Can I just leave these settings in place or do I just have to change the settings everytime before and after I play, which would just be plain annoying.

A:Port Forwarding/Opening Ports

It's great isn't it? All this different terminology. Nothing better to reassure you of hours of problems.

Outgoing ports are ports you want to allow out of your network. Some businesses only allow ports 80, 25 and 443 to prevent users using things like p2p, skype or encrypted communications. It is generally better to allow all ports out at home unless you are specifically blocking an application or suspected rogue application.

Incoming ports are ports you might want to allow through your firewall. Generally you allow certain ports from certain addresses. I can see you understand incoming anyway.

Source is a source IP address and port. You can define all ports from a specific address or a specific port from a range of or all addresses.

Destination is the opposite. You may want to use this if you wanted to only allow certain traffic out to a particular destination address.

I am sure when using incoming and outgoing the option to define ip addresses is available, so it's just semantics really.

Hey I am trying to open ports 1023 through 65535, which I did with my gateway and I did with my windows xp firewall, yet it still didn't work. I turned my firewall off, and still nothing. The game company, SOE, was telling me that I was getting a 100% packet lost and by opening these ports it would fix it, but still nothing seems to work. Is there another way to open these ports?

By the way I followed this link on how to open ports;en-us;308127

A:Opening ports for an online game

Did you open them on your router if using a router? If so, did you restart the router for the changes to take effect?

I have an Xbox 360 and when i go onto Xbox live it works with all my friends except one who i can only play with if i connect my xbox directly to the modem. Another one of my friends said he had to open up ports on his router. I had tried this but i found many different tutorials online and none seemed to work correctly. If anyone has a proven method of opening up ports can you help me out. My router is a Linksys WRT54GS. Thanks.

hi, I am going to upgrade my graphic card to ATI 5770 so I need a new power supply which has power about 550--600 watt. But the most frustrating problem is that I failed to find a proper power supply with the correct dimension.
I have an HP pavilion e9300 which uses a very wired power supply tower-150mm(W) 86(H) 140(D). But so far all the PSUs I found is the standard size --150mm(W) 86(H) 150(D) which cannot fit in my setup.

So could any PC God give me some suggestion, please??
Is any PSU with the size of my tower or can I just simply install a bigger PSU which can still successfully power up the comptuer?

Thx in adance.

A:Power supply bigger than the tower - frustrated by HP PSU tower

If the power supply will physically fit your case, it should work fine with your computer. Will the extra 10mm interfere internally with anything inside the PC?

Some basic info about my current network setup.

I'm connected wireless in my apt to an airport express, that is connected through a 80ft cable to an airport extreme down in my business.

I.E. Computer => Airport Express => Airport Extreme => Cable Modem.

The airport express is in Bridge Mode so it shouldn't be doing anything more than propagating the settings of the Airport Extreme. The problem is, when I go to the port forwarding options in the Extreme and open up the port I want to use with the IP of the computer I want to use as a micro server, and check them on check port sites, they show the port as closed.

The computer I'm trying to open up to use is a mac with OS 10.6.8, it has its firewall disabled.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
