Hi,
The way you do this is to take note of what the card IS, and who the maker IS and the model number which should be printed on the board. If by chance it isnt you will have to look at what other numbers you can identify it with. or you may be able to download the right drivers by identifying it by picture.
First, the maker =

Because you have not given a model number I cannot give you the precise drivers.
How ever you asked how to find them. Go to that site, match your model number with the correct driver download for your version of windoze.
I noticed that they do not have VISTA drivers for the card I think~ you have. You may write the company for specific drivers for VISTA but I doubt they will give you any. If the XP drivers work in VISTA you are in business. If not, it may be a VISTA incomatibility problem more than anything else. Vista is very challenging. MS is actually allowing people to go back to XP at no charge until Jan something in 09.
Once you have identified and downloaded the correct drivers double click to unzip it to a folder. Go to that folder and READ any read files it has before you start and follow the directions they state. It wold be wise to set a system restore point or do a back up ( your choice) before you begin.
Thank you and good luck. *s*

On a desktop you can actually buy a usb 2.0 pci card that goes inside the computer in one of the pci slots. 2.0 is the way to go because otherwise you'll be getting a message about how your device can run faster if it was plugged into a usb 2.0 port.

How can I add firewire to my HP s5730f slimline when the pci express slots are blocked? Is there a pci card I can use to add firewire?


Hi, yes, you should be able to add a firewire card that goes into a spare PCI slot inside your computer. I have provided some links for you to have a look at.

When you say your pci express slots are blocked, do you mean that you have a card, likely a video card, already installed in your pci express slot? You should have available pci slots anyway and you can purchase a fireward card and install it yourself. If you are unsure about this then you can do a search on youtube as there are lots of how to videos on there regarding this type of installation. Good luck. Andrew

Please describe your I have dell OptiPlex GX260 PC i tried to find it Ethanet driver at dell support but only have drivers for windows XP, but i am using Vista. I want driver that will work with windows...


That model Optiplex was made so long ago it's no longer in production and they are not going to make a driver for windows vista for it. Your best bet is to install either a half-height PCI network card or a USB network adapter that is supported under windows vista.

Imstalling internal card reader


Well, installing an internal card reader without a spot on the motherboard, is a little hard to do. I would suggest buying an external card reader. They are a little cheaper, and a lot easier to setup and use, since they just connect to a USB port which all computers have.
