Adding High Speed USB card

I have a Dell Optiplex GX 240, it has 1.0 or 1.1 usb ports. Please advise on how to add a 2.0 usb card. Thank You in advance.

You should be able to just add a pci card, install drivers if nessasary and be ready to go. Thats assuming you have a pci slot free. Are you wondering how to install the card?


normally, there is an instructions leaflet with the card, explaining how to install the card. Installation of drivers is only necessary if you are running Windows 98 or ME. More recent Windows Versions Win 2000 or XP with latest Service Pack have USB 2.0 drivers built in.

  2. Shove it in.
  3. Pray.
  4. Power on.
  5. If it smokes try again.
