I have a PCI bus mainboard and it has USB support. My problem is there is no connector to the board that I can see although there is a 10 pin USB Jumper on the board. What will I need to hook up a USB device to the board. The board is a P54/55 supported board with a 430hx chipset. I hope this info will help.

Some boards have a riser card that slides between the PCI and EISA slots. Most decent Computer hardware stord should have either the riser cards (Some Tyans) or the USB connectors for around 20$. Frys Electronics has then here in Texas.

Check your bootup Bios # at Wims Bios to get the exact Motherboard info ( http://www.ping.be/bios/ ) There should be a link to the manufacturer of the board and you should be able to check whether it uses a riser card or the USB connectors.

From what I can tell there is no place for a riser card. Would it be ok to put in a seperate USB card and go from there.My bios supports USB. I don't know how to set up a USB card but i'm sure it's not that hard.
