Will this expansion card work for Inspiron 530? Parallel Port PCI Card (http://www.lavalink.com/index.php?id=247)


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.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd 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!
