    Default 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.
