Ok thank you so much. As soon as it gets here I will definitely do as instructed and will update u ASAP .... I hope it works :( 

 

Its taking so long to get here but I think its coming from Hong Kong .. maybe I hold of done express mail.

 

I do have a question ... On the computer I am trying to fix I run a very long cable from the modem to the back of the tower which runs across my long hall bc I had to put my computer on the other side of my apartment .. I was told I can get a wireless card for the back of y tower so that I don't have to run that cable across the entire apart ...

 

what is it called and where can I buy one? You have directed me on those two pieces I needed can u tell me where I can order one as well online? Please thank you so much.

Yes, you can add a card to a slot inside the computer but need to know if your Router is Wireless enabled   Please post the brand?model.

Ok.

This is the card I think will do the job. > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16833166076

Please contact your ISP to confirm your router model and that the adaptor is compatible. > http://www.verizon.c...netEquipmentRef

 

If they suggest their own product, it must be a PCI-e 1 card to fit in the black slot on your MB.

Gday.

Let us know if these instructions are OK and you can proceed. 

First instructions are for a PCI sound card but is exactly the same for the PCI adaptor card you are installing.  

> http://www.geeks.com/techtips/2006/techtips-08jun06.htm 

This video is for instlling a wireless PCI cardbut the hardware install is the same for the card you are installing,

> http://www.homepcbui...rd-adapter.html

 

Install your card to the white slot furthest away from the CPU.

Fixed the first link.

The video is just to show the installation method for a PCI card, not for the wireless card we discussed.

Restart the computer and enter the BIOS, does the keyboard work in the new PCI card?

what do u mean enter the BIOS?? Im I suppose to change something in BIOS once I install the PCI card?

 

I did the installation exactly as it showed in those images ... the video was confusing and looked nothing like what I needed to do but I did figure it out and it is installed ... I even went back in and opened the tower and made sure I installed it correctly and in the right place ... so do I change anything in BIOS once the PCI card is installed??

No, there is nothing to change in the BIOS.

I just want you to restart the computer and enter the BIOS to see if the keyboard still works, (even though you are not changing anything) You still need to > Press F10 to Save setting and exit. 

Has the computer restarted?   Are you back at the windows Desktop.?   Does the keyboard work?
