My PCI question…

I have just bought a PCI card that turns out to be PCI 2.2 compatible.
My PC is running PCI 2.1, hence an having some compatibility issues.

Just wondered what my options are:
Upgrade Motherboard / Processor / BIOS? (I don't actually know what controls PCI)
Run some software PCI 2.1 -> PCI 2.2 conversion?
Get an adapter that you could plug in (to PCI or AGP slot) to allow the PCI 2.2 to run
Throw the card away and start again.

My PC is a Compaq Deskpro EN P550 machine.
The card is a TV Card: V-Stream DV/AV Expert TV Stereo PCI card

Thanks in advance.
