  1. I have a pc3500g motherboard and a 4 slot card reader that I need to attach to the board but I don.'t know which way the wires go on the pins. Can anyone help. It's an everex machine and I can't get any support as the phone no. or web page no longer exist for this machine

    Your board may not have the necessary header. A card reader usually requires a standard internal usb header. Com1 is for a serial port if your board does not have any usb headers (some older boards don't) you may need to just use an external card reader that plugs into an external usb port.

    Thank you, I figured it out the computer came with a card reader I just forgot where it went. Thanks again.
