It's probably best to show you a picture - so this is a link to the best I could find. The ISA slot is the black slot at the top.

Hope this helps.

A coma computer enthusiast has installed an old ISA sound card in his PC. However, it locks up and doesn?t work when a tape backup unit is used on the system. What is the most likely cause of the problem...


ISA is a very old technology and cards usually require switches or links to be set to avoid conflicts with other cards. ISA is not plug-n-play like PCI or PCI-e.
The software talks to an ISA card by knowing parameters such as IRQ number, DMA number, address range. These values may be permanently set on some cards, while others allow changing via the DIL switches or jumper links. To get two ISA cards working in one PC, the two cards need to use their own IRQ, DMA & address ranges. Make sure there are no conflicts of settings on the sound card and the tape drive card.
Try changing the settings on one of the cards. The tape drive may be the easiest for this. The tape drive is probably connected via a ISA to SCSI interface card. This should have DIP switches or Links to allow the above settings to be changed.

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:

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:

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.

MOB ITOX G4620-N won't reconize ISA Cards


WOW must be a fairly old system if it still has ISA slots.
Are you running XP or something else?

I assume you have the manufactures drivers that match the operating system you are using?

Have the isa cards worked in this system before?

My memory of isa cards is they are really useless at managing interrupts and I/O addresses. Go into device manager and see if there are any conflicts.

Try installing one card at a time. once it is recognised you can try the second one.

Also go into the bios settings page and turn off devices you are not using like serial ports and parrallel ports. if you have a sound card remove it or disable it if is onboard.

If you know what Interupt the cards is tyring to uses you should be able to reserve it in the bios so that plug and play devices won't touch it.


With a some trial and error and a combination of all these settings you should be able to figure it out.

How to use ISA Slot in PCI Slot


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! :)

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.

PCI card not been detected via Windows.


the sound card is installed into the ISA slot not the PCI slot.
clear the cmos for a minute, set it normal again.
install the sound card to the ISA slot carefully - i mean a working sound card and couple the system unit and boot, surely you will have your sound card working.
