Problem with PCIX 133MHz slot

Hi, I've installed the Lava DSerial-PCI 1.3V in a 100MHz PCIX and it is working fine. But when I try to install the board in my 133MHz PCIX slot, it is not working. In Device Manager, there is a "!" on the device and and it written it is a code 10 and that the board won't start. Can you help me on that ? thanks

Make sure that all drivers and software for these devices are installed before installing the hardware.

How to install low profile firewire card


You don't say which brand and model of computer this card is for, so my answer cannot be specific to your computer.

Disconnect all cables from the computer.

Once you open the side/top and can access the motherboard, you should remove the blanking plate directly in line with one of the white PCI slots near the far left corner of the board (looking at it from the front of the computer). The blanking plates cover empty slots at the back of the computer case. Some blanking plates are held in place by a screw direct to the L-shaped lip. Others are held in place by a metal bar that is itself screwed to the exterior of the back panel of the case. Other blanking plates just clip in and out.

The card should be pressed evenly so that it slots cleanly and evenly into the PCI slot. The silver endplate faces outwards from thec interior of the back of the case, The lip of the card's silver enplate rests flat on a ledge at the interior of the back of the case, aligned with a screw hole (if the fitting is a screw type fitting) and the ****** at the bottom of the endplate fits into a small slot between the rear edge of the motherboard and the interior of the back of the case.

If there is a screwhole on the rear ledge, screw the lip to the case firmly but not too tight to the ledge.

Reconnect the cables to the computer and power it on and then install any driver software (drivers may not be necessary for the later versions of Windows),

If all is well, then test the Firewire port with a firewire cable and a camcorder.

If everything is fine, shut the computer down, disconnect the cables and close the case, before reconnecting and powering up again.

If any hardware fault arises, check the seating of the firewire card again and repeat the testing sequence.

I hope this helps.

Is Hi-speed USB 2.0 5-port PCI card compatible with Windows 7 and is there a driver available

According to belkins wweb site there is no Windows 7 driver or support for this card. From what I could find on else where it should just work with Windows 7. If you have the card installed and it is not being detected by Windows 7 I would remove the card with the system powered off. Turn it on so it "notices" that its no longer there, then power off and put the card back in, in another slot if you have one. turn it back on and it should detect it.

Keyspan SX Pro Serial Adapter set up

Do you have the driver cd of the card. For setting up a PCI card simply insert it in the pci slot and install drivers when it asks you.

I think your PCI card needs drivers

It should come under IEEE 1394 hos bus controlers! It uses Windows standard FireWire drivers provided by your operating system(Windows2000/XP). If it doesn't come up, try reseating in the PCI slot or resetting your BIOS! regards, babb

Installation issues

Go into the device manager and hit view/show hidden devices. Remove any Unknown devices. Also remove any devices with an exclamation point. Install the software if it allows to continue. If not, shut down the machine, move the card to another slot. Boot up and install the software then.

PCI adapter did not install

I don't know how you could have installed the drivers BEFORE you installed the hardware... Shut down and UNPLUG the system; REMOVE the new PCI card, then hook up the power and boot the system back to the Desktop. Check the Device Manager to be sure you're not showing any problems; if everything seems back to normal, shut down and unplug the system a second time, then install the PCI card again, restore power, and prepare to reboot the system. Be SURE that ALL of the PCI cards are fully seated in the slots, and that the main power cable (from the PSU) is fully seated in the connector; IOW, check the system just to be sure that nothing has come loose while you've been working inside the case. Next, boot the system again; Windows SHOULD detect the new PCI card during bootup, though it might NOT request drivers, if they are already embedded within XP itself... Once you get back to the Desktop, open the Device Manager and check to be sure that the new card has been detected and properly installed. If you see any question marks, error messages, or exclamation marks, take detailed notes, and post that information here, so we can help you troubleshoot the problem... Good luck; I can only give you general advice about this, because you didn't provide any specific details about your new hardware, but with a little luck, you'll get everything working without any more heartburn...

Most likely the card is not being recognized properly. Try the following to try and resolve the issue.

1. Ensure you have all of Microsoft's Windows updates for your operating system, uninstall the drivers and reinstall drivers for the card IF you have Windows updates to download/install.
2. Install the card into a different PCI slot (again reinstall the drivers). If you do not have another PCI slot, swap it with another PCI card (if you do not need that other PCI card then leave it uninstalled physically to see if the problem goes away)
3. Update the BIOS on the motherboard. To do this you may need to contact your motherboard or system vendor to assist.

What version of Windows are you using?
