Bus Priority PCI - ISA

I have an old Deskpro 2000 5200MMX (desktop type). I need to install a PCI modem and a USB 2 card, but into the BIOS the bus priority selection is Disabled and is selected ISA priority!!! On ISA Bus I have a sound card. This sound card is correctly installed and the O.S. (Win 98) see this card!!!
The PC does not find the PCI card installed.
Please give me some informations about the correct settings I have to do.
Best Regards
Massimo

    Sorry but the problem is: the PCI bus does not work on the riser board and into the bios is disaled the bus type selection. The bus set is ISA and I'm not be able to change this setting.

    Please give me some other information to change this setting!!!

    Best regards

Actually there is a solution for this
i found a usb 2 driver somewhere and now i can attach ipods to my compaq same model as his

  • Tedmouse Mar 19, 2008

    forgot i attached a usb pci card which then i looked for drivers just for usb 2 to work

  • Tedmouse Mar 20, 2008

    and for it to read the pci fully you have to look into the add hardware which is located in the control panel section

    It will be listed as UNKNOWN you need to find or get the drivers for it.

    I had a second PCI which i reinstalled the drivers by opening the the folder which had the drivers in it



    the other pci i just reinstalled it by forceing it to get drivers off the card it's self...which somehow worked

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.

What type of video card can I use on this motherboard? D945GZIS AGP? PCI? PCI EXPRESS?


Your MoBo has (1) of each PCI Express x1 & and PCI Express x16 slots, and (2) standard PCI slots. There are NO AGP bus slots on this board. You'd want to use buy a PCI Express x16 video card instead of a PCI video card due to the better performance offered by the PCI Express cards.

The full details of your motherboard are below:


Product Description The Intel Desktop Board D946GZIS delivers an integrated graphics solution in the Essential Series by combining exceptional value with quality and reliability and supports Intel Core2 Duo, Intel Pentium D, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Celeron D processors with 1066/800/533 MHz system bus in the LGA775 package. This board features a PCI Express x16 connector, integrated 10/100 LAN, dual-channel DDR2 memory, Intel High Definition Audio (Intel HD Audio) and up to eight USB 2.0 ports.

Wha t is a pci


Conventional PCI (part of the PCI Local Bus standard and often shortened to PCI) is a computer bus for attaching hardware devices in a computer. These devices can take either the form of an integrated circuit fitted onto the motherboard itself, called a planar device in the PCI specification, or an expansion card that fits into a slot. The name PCI is an initialism formed from Peripheral Component Interconnect. The PCI Local Bus is common in modern PCs, where it has displaced ISA and VESA Local Bus as the standard expansion bus, and it also appears in many other computer types. Despite the availability of faster interfaces such as PCI-X and PCI Express, conventional PCI remains a very common interface.

The PCI specification covers the physical size of the bus (including wire spacing), electrical characteristics, bus timing, and protocols. The specification can be purchased from the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG).

Typical PCI cards used in PCs include: network cards, sound cards, modems, extra ports such as USB or serial, TV tuner cards and disk controllers. Historically video cards were typically PCI devices, but growing bandwidth requirements soon outgrew the capabilities of PCI. PCI video cards remain available for supporting extra monitors and upgrading PCs that do not have any AGP or PCI Express slots.

Many devices traditionally provided on expansion cards are now commonly integrated onto the motherboard itself, meaning that modern PCs often have no cards fitted. However, PCI is still used for certain specialized cards, although many tasks traditionally performed by expansion cards may now be performed equally well by USB devices.

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. :-)

Gateway computer and ether net card will not plug in


There have been several varients of buss slots over the years from Vesa to ISA8bit ISA16bit EISA 32bit and PCI32 and PCI64 and more recently the PCIE and PCIE16 bus slots.
at a guess I would say that the card yrom your old gateway is a VESA or ISA16 card and the newer gateway is a PCI
the way to Identify an ISA card is to look at the edge connector that plugs into the motherboard, the ISA 8bit will have 31 sections to it the 16bit varient than has an aditional 18 connects on a sepparate section. this connection is much lager than the PCI bus slot even though PCI has over 50 connectors. VESA cards are lager again and have 3 sections to their edge connectors - the boards are not interchangeable.
