Installing 5 Port USB 2 PCI Card

  [DELETED] 21:32 06 Dec 2003

I have a Mesh Matrix XP 1700 Plus with Asus Socket A Motherboard A7A266-E purchased 14/1/02 and I wish to install a Belkin Card which states " slide it into existing PCI version 2.1 slot" does my motherboard have such a slot and can I get full Hi-Speed. If not, as a novice, can you tell me what to do, thank you

Yes all your PCI slots should be 2.1.

I would suggest that you install the software, from the belkin C\D, including the USB2.0 drivers.

Switch off the machine and insert the card into a spare PCI slot and reboot.

Windows should find the card and the drivers. With a bit of luck you will be then up and running.

Read the manual before you install any software that came with the board - you may not need to if you have WinXP.
