View Full Version : USB PCI Express card.

Fairly broad question.
If a USB PCI Express card is added to system, will the OS find drivers for it or will it need it's own.
Assuming this is a new system running win7.

Some cards will automatically install the correct drivers, others should have the drivers on the manufactures Site. Had a W7 PC on Wednesday do just that, fresh install and windows couldn't find the drivers. took ages trying to find the right ones as it was a no name card, the owner didn't have the original Driver CD, and the ones that were "meant" to be correct by the Hardware ID didn't work :(

Thought that might be the case.
Had one here today with 2 different cards in it.
No go.
Showed in device manager with flags.
Ran out of time.
Sugested to owner, google the cards & find some drivers.
