There is an adapter available if you look on computer sites for product purchases, try to google it as there or companies than make such items, might be harder to find as PCI and ISA are older connectors and even AGP is begin phased out an PCI express is the lading connector. Google ISA to PCI adapter and see what you can get your compangies to pruchases from. Your local computer hardware shop might have it call first and ask before driving out there, If you find nothing try calling Tigerdirect as they might have older stock, you never know, If to no avail you will have to try and locate an older Motherboard with the two conncectors on it and run that if possible, or find this certain ISA card you're talking about in PCI. Good luck! :)

Compaq Presario 5220 Desktop Windows 98 internet: Dial-up Can a DSL card be installed or would I need to go with a wireless USB? And would wireless USB work on Win98?


You can install a network card inside the computer. You will need a PCI or an ISA card. (I know PCI network cards are easy to find at most of the computer shops.) See this site for how to install a card: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07111&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=93139 . However you should open your computer and check the space between the devices in the slots in the computer. There is an AGP slot with a video graphics card, 1 PCI/ISA slot with a modem (default specs), one free ISA slot and one free PCI slot. However depending on the graphics card one of these slots may be blocked by the card. You'll either need to get a card that fits the available slot or remove the modem and use that slot.

Here are some PCI 10/100 network cards: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=587&name=10-100%20Ethernet%20PCI/ISA . Most of these are compatible with Win98. I'm not sure if there are any gigabit NIC with Win98 drivers.

Wired and wireless USB NIC adapters exist. However, you will be limited to the USB speed. If you have USB 1.1, that will be really slow. Most likely your computer will require a reboot anytime the connection is lost.

I hope this helps.

I have just bought a new computer which has no facility for the parallel port plug-in so my 3D software will not work. MIne is a Designer 1 which takes floppy discs. I have bought an external...


Hi Christine,

If I'm following you correctly, your computer lacks a parallel or "printer" port. This port accepts the male printer plug and would look like this:

steve_con_56.jpg

Most computers have this jack or port, but progress may be pushing them the way of the 5-1/4" floppy disk I suppose - in favor of USB ports instead. If this is correct so far, you have the option of installing an "expansion card" in one of the unused slots inside your computer. Most newer PCs have one or more PCI slots available for expansion card(s). Examples of these cards are network cards, sound cards and you guess it - serial and printer cards. Many of these functions are built into the motherboard nowadays, so there's not too much need for expansion slots - and those supplied seldom are used up.

You can purchase and install a printer card for short money. They look like this:



steve_con_1.jpeg

Some of these cards may be bundled with a 9 pin serial or "aux" port or other function. Serial or AUX port card were popular with external modems and non-usb mice. Both of which have been dying off for some years now. Anyway, it's your choice whether to get just a printer port like the one above or one with additional connections on it as well. They can be purchased for under $10 (more if it has extra functionality). Here's a link to some offered for sale. You'll need to check the available slot type(s) you have in you computer - most are PCI and some offer the older ISA style. Look at the picture below to help identify the slots in your computer:

steve_con_57.jpg
In the picture above, the three long, black slots on the left edge of the board are ISA slots. The 4 shorter purple slots more towards the middle are PCI slots. The light brown slot to the right of the PCI slots is the graphics port. This slot or port as it is called, is neither ISA or PCI and is dedicated for a video card. This port is usually a PCI Express type slot, but some older PCs may have the slower AGP type slot instead. Prior to that was a very long slot - over twice as long as PCI called VESA Local Bus. These are almost never seen anymore. The earliest video slot was an ISA slot - like those on the left of your motherboard. You're going to be checking for an unused ISA or PCI slot in your computer after shutting it off and opening it up. If both are available, you should opt to buy PCI expansion cards instead of ISA expansion cards whenever you need to install a card - like the printer card shown earlier.

That's it. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

This is a PCI Network Card. It plugs into a PCI expansion slot on your computer. You will need to install the drivers for this network card to work properly.


How to install a network card Some newer computers come with network interfaces built in - your machine carefully for a socket that looks like a large telephone socket with a network_symbol.jpg next to it. These are sometimes hidden behind a flap or on the corner of your laptop next to the modem socket.
If you haven't got a network interface already on your machine you will have to install a network interface card. These are available to buy from the IT Service Desk.
  • USB Adaptors simply plug into a USB port.
  • PCMCIA Cards for laptops slot in a free PCMCIA slot on the side of your machine.
  • PCI Cards are a bit more fiddly and require you to open up your machine.
  • We advise that you use a USB adaptor for ease of installation
Instructions on how to fit a PCI network interface card.
  1. Shut down Windows and then turn the computer off and unplug it. Never work in your computer's insides with the power on or the power cord plugged in!
  2. Remove the cover from your computer. There are normally a number of screws on the outside of the case to remove. Put the screws someplace where they won't wander off.
  3. Find an unused expansion slot inside the computer. The expansion slots are lined up in a neat row near the back of the computer. All new computers have at least three or four slots known as PCI slots.
  4. Many older computers also have several slots known as ISA slots. You can distinguish ISA slots from PCI slots by noting the size of the slots. PCI slots are smaller than ISA slots, so you can't accidentally insert a PCI card in an ISA slot or vice versa. Figure 2 shows the different types of slots. PCI slots are white, ISA slots are black
  5. When you find the right type of slot that doesn't have a card in it, remove the metal backplate from the back of the computer's chassis. A small retaining screw holds the backplate in place. Remove the screw, pull the backplate out, keep it in a safe place in case you ever want to remove the network card.
  6. Insert the network card into the slot. Line up the connectors on the bottom of the card with the connectors in the expansion slot, and then press the card straight down. Sometimes you have to press uncomfortably hard to get the card to slide into the slot.
  7. Ignored the little cable that came with the card, you can chuck this in the bin. It is a Wake-On-LAN connector and isn't required for your card to work.
  8. Secure the network card with the screw that you removed in Step 4.
  9. Put the computer's case back together. Watch out for the loose cables inside the computer; you don't want to pinch them with the case as you slide it back on. Secure the case with the screws that you removed in Step 2.
  10. Turn the computer back on.

Why hardware system may require the installation of new hardware components?


Well there's two reasons. One is that software keeps getting more and more complicated. The other is that with the new technologies come new standards that the old pieces don't conform to and therefore won't work with. I'll use graphics cards as an example.

In the beginning, the IBM PC/XT and its clones had 8-bit bus slots. This is where the video card (such as it was) would be plugged in. As time went by, 16-bit computing came to the consumer market with the advent of the IBM AT (Advanced Technology) and the Intel 80286 CPU. The 8-bit slots now were 16-bit slots called ISA. Fortunately, 8-bit cards continued to function in ISA slots but the 16-bit ISA cards outperformed them and so nobody wanted the 8-bit cards anymore. The same thing happened when the industry advanced again with the 32-bit Intel 80386DX and SX. The bus architecture changed to the 32-bit EISA which again was backwards-compatible with ISA. Things changed during the time of the 486 when the VESA standard appeared. It didn't dominate the market because it didn't have time to. EISA was already entrenched and just as VESA started to catch on, a familiar face appeared. The familiar face was PCI, it was introduced just before the original Pentium and was the fastest bus slot ever seen. The PCI slot dominated for awhile but computing got progressively more graphic intensive and the PCI slot couldn't cope because it is a shared bus (All the PCI slots on the motherboard share bandwidth with each other). AGP was introduced in 1997 (AGP 1x) and got progressively faster with 2x, 4x and finally 8x. PCI-Express v1.0 appeared and immediately offered double the bandwidth of AGP. AGP's days were now numbered. PCI-Express v1.0 was upgraded to PCI-Express v1.1 but even that was soon superceded by PCI-Express v2.0 which again doubled the bandwidth over PCI-Express v1.0/1.1. Although PCI-Express v2.0 is completely backwards compatible with previous versions of PCI-Express, it is not compatible with AGP at all which is why new cards were needed for motherboards with PCI-Express. This was true for EISA/VESA - PCI, PCI - AGP and now AGP - PCI-Express. The slot changed to accomodate new techology and so the cards had to change with it. Similar events occurred with every standard in the computer industry and new products had to be used to match the new and more advanced hardware standards. There's your one-time answer. :-)

MY XFX8500GT CARD WON'T FIT INTO ANY OF THE CPI SLOTS IN MY COMPAC PC,CAN I USE THE BLACK ISA SLOT?


That card is a PCI EXPRESS. Not the same as a PCI. Definetely wont work in your ISA either. PCI Express came out a few years ago and is a faster interface than PCI. Hope you can get your money back or exchange it for a PCI. Please remember to rate me if this fixedYa. Thanks.

Replacing a sound card for a dell dimension 3000


Check if your PC has a PCI slot. It is this white strip on you motherboard. Go to your PC shop and ask for a PCI sound card. Just insert it and install the Drivers CD. If it doesn't, You may have the old ISA slot and stores may not be available of any ISA sound card. But dont worry, generally all computers starting from pentium 2 has a PCI slot. You may worry only if your computer is as old as the 486 computers.
