    I need to find IE1, IE2, re1, re2 and overal voltage gain.

    First i should open all capacitor first right?. it should be like this:
    [​IMG]

    How possible i can calculate since there dont have enough value in this circuit? like Ic or Ib.

    Start by noting that for each transistor IE=(1+beta)*Ib
    Set up the equations applying Kirchhoff's laws and solve for the operating point.

    Here my final draw:
    [​IMG]

    IC1 = IB2

    IC1 = VR1/R1

    VR1 = Vcc - (Vceq1+VRE)

    ----------------------------------------------
    or

    Vceq2 = Vcc - (VR4 + VR5)

    I should find IB2 first..let me think........

    IC1 <> IB1
    IC1 flows through the collector of Q1, not into the base of Q2.
    IC1+IB2 = VR1/R1
    ...

    IE1 = (VCC – VCE) / (R1 + R2 + R3)
    = 12v – 0v / 20k + 2k + 8k
    = 12v / 30k
    = 0.4mA

    Let assume VCE Q1 = 6.0v

    IE1 = (VCC – VCE) / (R1 + R2 + R3)
    = 12v – 6v / 20k + 2k + 8k
    = 6v / 30k
    = 0.2mA

    VE Q1 = IE1 x (R2+R3)
    = 0.2mA x 10k
    = 2v

    VB Q1 = VE1 + VBE1
    = 2v + 0.7v
    = 2.7v

    VB Q2 = VCC – (R1 x IE1)
    = 12v – 4v
    = 8v

    VE Q2 = VB Q2 – VBE Q2
    = 8v – 0.7v
    =7.3v

    VR5 = ½ x VE Q2
    = 3.65v

    *VR5 should be near to VB Q1 = 2.7v, this show IE1 is too low, we need to increase it. Try IE1 = 0.3mA

    VE Q1 = IE1 x (R2+R3)
    = 0.3mA x 10k
    = 3v

    VB Q1 = VE1 + VBE1
    = 3v + 0.7v
    = 3.7v

    VB Q2 = VCC – (R1 x IE1)
    = 12v – 6v
    = 6v

    VE Q2 = VB Q2 – VBE Q2
    = 6v – 0.7v
    =5.3v

    VR5 = ½ x VE Q2
    = 2.65v

    *VR5 should be near to VB Q1 = 2.7v, this show equal to VB Q1 to low. Try with IE1 = 0.25mA

    VE Q1 = IE1 x (R2+R3)
    = 0.25mA x 10k
    = 2.5v

    VB Q1 = VE1 + VBE1
    = 2.5v + 0.7v
    = 3.2v

    VB Q2 = VCC – (R1 x IE1)
    = 12v – 5v
    = 7v

    VE Q2 = VB Q2 – VBE Q2
    = 7v – 0.7v
    =6.3v

    VR5 = ½ x VE Q2
    = 3.15v

    *This result is close for VB Q1.


    Let IE1 = 0.24mA

    VE Q1 = IE1 x (R2+R3)
    = 0.24mA x 10k
    = 2.4v

    VB Q1 = VE Q1 + VBE Q1
    = 2.4v + 0.7v
    = 3.1v

    VC Q1 = VCC – (IE1 x R1)
    = 12v – 4.8v
    = 7.2v

    VB Q2 = VC Q1
    = 7.2v

    VE Q3 = VB Q2 – VBE Q2
    = 7.2v – 0.7v
    = 6.5v

    IE2 = VE Q2 / (R4 + R5)
    = 6.3v / 2k
    = 3.15mA


    So: IE1 = 0.25mA and IE2 = 3.15mA.

    re1 = VT / IE1
    = 26mV / 0.25mA
    = 104 Ohm.

    re2 = VT / IE2
    = 26mV / 3.15 mA
    = 8.25 Ohm.


    IB1 = IE1 / Beta
    = 0.25mA / 100
    = 0.0025mA


    IC1 = 1+Beta x IB1
    = 101 x 0.0025
    = 0.253mA

    Av1 = IC1xRC / IE1 x re1
    = 0.253mA x 20k / 0.25mA x 104 Ohm
    = 5.06v / 26mV
    = 0.19 v

    Av2 = 12v / IE2 x re2
    = 12v / 3.15mA x 8.25 Ohm
    = 12v / 25.99mV
    = 0.462 v

    Why should this be so?
    What about IB2 which also flows through R1?

    What makes you think so? Why not 5V or 7V?

    Some equations to work with:
    IE1=(1+beta)*IB1
    IE2=(1+beta)*IB2
    voltage across R5: (IE2-IB1)*R5=IB1*R6+VBEQ1+IE1*(R2+R3)
    ...
    I hope that helps.
