Windows 7: USB PCI card not recognized

USB PCI card not recognized

Hello,

I installed this USB PCI card:

5 Ports High Speed USB 2 0 PCI Card Expansion Kit 4 External 1 Internal for PC | eBay

when I booted, I didn't get any alert that new hardware was installed.

I think I installed it correctly into the motherboard.

Is there a driver that I need to install? or it's probably becuase it is not installed correctly?

Thanks!

The best way to see if it's working is to try it. If it isn't working, then yeah you need drivers. As to which ones, well you'll have to figure that out since I can't tell what card it is. You should have gotten some documentation with the card telling you where to at least look for drivers.

Good luck.

I found the same card here:

5 Port PCI High Speed USB 2.0 Adapter Card | StarTech.com Global

I tried installed the driver posted there but I get a: "drivers for this OS are not in this file".

Do you know where can I find drivers for Windows 7?

I have no idea. The card should have come with drivers or at least instructions on how to install card and drivers. That's the problem with buying 3 party e-bay stuff, you don't get all the required documents.

Anyway I asked, and you ignored or missed, the question as to if the card is working or not. If it is, than all is good.

Then you'll have to find out by the vendor where to get drivers.

Did you try a different slot for the card? Also-If the card has the VIA chip the drivers are on the Startech page.
