Hello! Well, today there was a technical presentation by some students in my school so there was this discussion about NIC's. So somebody came up with a question that what's the difference between ethernet card and network interface card..! So that guy replied that ethernet card's different in sense that they have some better protocol and additional features as compared to NIC... What I thought was that they were the same thing!! So is it actually different?

Hi folks, My onboard VGA display port is not working. When I start machine display toggles 'ON'/'OFF' in series and after 10 seconds monitor goes blank. My doubt is that the VGA port has some issues. I've checked monitor by connecting it to laptop. Its working fine. So my question is.. if I add PCI VGA card or PCI DVI card on motherboard, will my display work? Or I must have to go for graphics card? My computer usage is normal(movie/songs/documents/internet). No Gaming. My desktop configuration is Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 Motherboard: Intel D945GCCR Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2033w …

I have inherited a brand new pc from a friend and have a question about sata. The mobo has only one pci-e slot and that is being blocked by the video card. I need a connection to my external hdd enclosure. The mobo has a single free esata port and a couple of free sata ports. So what I beleive I need is something like, or similar to, this [Click Here](http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812816068). But I am not sure if I must plug it into the esata port or a sata port of the mobo Or if it makes a difference. Thoughts??

Hey guys! I'm selecting the parts for my new gaming desktop and I don't know too much about audio. I'm using the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard and I don't know if I should buy a Asus Xonar DG 24-bit 96 KHz Sound Card. I tried looking at the audio specs of both but I don't understand too much about it. So is it worth it and what are the differences? Thanks

The Internationale Funkausstellung is not a jazz-fusion music event. Nope, the [URL="http:// www.ifa-berlin.com"]IFA[/URL] is apparently the world’s largest consumer electronics show these days, and it runs until 6th September in Berlin. Once over the disappointment that the only music was Muzak-alike piped hell, the race was on to discover the best gadget of the show. All in one day. This was made somewhat more difficult than usual as Sony were amongst the list of notable non-attendees. But never mind, there was plenty else to pick from. So, would I choose one of the 1920 x 1080 HDTV flat screen televisions, …

I just went and bought a Creative Recon3D soundcard and I cannot get it to see the Front Panel microphone. Just says its unplugged. FP output is fine - when plugged in it mutes rear speakers and plays out headphones. As far as I can tell, the Recon has the same FP header as my previous soundcard, an X-fi Extreme. Ive been onto Creative but its hard enough getting them to read the question! So far I have: Reinstalled drivers Reconnected the old Soundcard and checked the microphone works with that (it does) Made use of rear panel inputs/outputs In …

OK, I've just finished setting up my dual boot system - WinXP Home Edition and Ubuntu Linux 5.10. I've installed all the upgraded drivers and BIOS needed for my system. (A Dell Dimension 8400) So I've just logged on to Windows and hear that familiar start-up sound, and think "Well, my sound card's working...". I guess it was a little early to think that. Just to test everything out, I start up WinAmp. I see the music playing, but no sound is coming out of the speakers. So I check if anything is muted. It's not. The cables are all …

I'm thinking of adding a mini pcie SSD to my netbook seeing as they seem reasonably cheap. I have a spare mini pcie slot but I'm a completely new to this so what I want to ask is this: * Can I just get [this](http://www.suntekstore.co.uk/goods.php?id=10010412&utm_source=gbuk) card and fit it? How does it fit? Does it just screw down or is there some kind of bracket i need to get? There just appears to be the connector contacts there inside. I've done a YouTube search and couldn't find any situation that looked similar. My netbook is a Samsung N220. If it …

I have a half-mini PCI-E WiFi card (RTL8192E to be exact), which has 2 small aerial pins plugged into it. Can I use this without any aerials in a new PC build so I don't have to buy a new WiFi card? If it will work, would the signal be strong enough to reach to a router which is downstairs, pretty much directly below me? Thanks, --Mark

Hey guys, so I was wondering if something is wrong with my PCI Express Card. I did the CPU-Z scan or whatever, and it says I have a PCI Express Card, but it also says the Link Width is x0 and the Max. Supported is x0. Is there something wrong with my card? I want to be able to put a Firewire PCI Express in an empty slot, but want to make sure it will work before I go out and buy one. Here is my report CPU-Z TXT Report ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Binaries ------------------------------------------------------------------------- CPU-Z version 1.60.1 Processors ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Number of …

Not sure if my Dell Inspiron 530 can handle this graphics card. [Click Here](http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2759376&Sku=G458-0218) My computer has a 300w power supply and I'm not sure how many PCI slots or whatever it is it has.

Hey guys, I finally found what was solving my crashing of my computer and it's been determined it's the graphics card (onboard Nvidia gforce 6150se.) Now the problem is looking for a graphics card that can fit in my system (computer is pretty darn compact.) Computer model is a Emachines EL-1200-05W and it apparently has room for a half height PCIe graphics card. I'm not looking for a upgrade to my system at all, just something that will not bottleneck my CPU and will be a good replacement until i can build a new PC next year. Thanks guys! Wetzel

Hello, thanks for reading. I have recently noticed sound only coming from one speaker. I have done the obvious diagnoses and determined: [LIST] [*]both speakers work fine (on another PC using the same set-up); and [*]it is not the operating system (Windows) - I booted a recent Ubuntu Live CD and the problem persisted; hence [*]it must be my sound card / the female aux connector? :( [/LIST] I really appreciate any advice, thank you.
