    Morning

    I have a machine running me. I have installed a pci usb card into one of the pci slots and installed the relavant driver but any usb device are attached is not detected by the system. The system does not recognise the card. The card works fine on other systems.

    Thanks

    when you say relevant driver i assume you mean that which came with the card, try the manufacturers site for any updates.

    also reseat the card and check it is fully in it's slot

    if add new h/w wizard does not detect it then manually add the device again via add new h/w wizard but chose the manual option

    I have the latest driver for the card, tried seating it on another pci slot(other devices work on that slot) tried running the add hardware wizard with the maual install. No error messages, but any usb device I attached to the card is not picked up.

    just been struggling with a usb scanner, and finally got the usb hub and scanner to work by disabling " enable legacy usb support" in the cmos ( bios set up)

    may be this will work for you ?

    Does the card appear in device manager at all?
