Will this expansion card work for Inspiron 530?  Parallel Port PCI Card (

Posted on 2008-11-19
Last Modified: 2012-06-22

I ordered this card for my Inspiron 530.  I am hoping the machine takes full size PCI card, not half-height or three-quarter height.

How can I be sure?  Machine is not in my possession. It is a customer's.

    i suggest to measure the height from the bottom till the  guide clamp
    on 1/2 height ot is  6.7 cm = 2.6 "
    full height is about 11 cm =  4.3"

    awesome. ... thank you for your thoroughness.....  i think the manual is the best proof that it takes full sized cards.  note: machine was not in my possession and was at a very fussy customer across the county that's why i had to make sure!
