    Why not replace the PCI card with a USB version?
    eg USB video card, USB sound, etc.
    Never seen a USB device you could plug a PCI card into.
    Power might be a problem.

      It would be easier to "find" that PCI slot that you "lost". Hmmm, I know it must be around here somewhere? (LOL). The issues are power and speed. USB can't do what PCI can.

        Well I know I lost the PCI slot cause I had a card plugged in while I was working around that area and sparks came out from the card when the screwdriver touched it, the card in question is a PCI to PCMCIA adapter for my wireless card I went ahead and bought a new one and it doesnt work I tested it on my house computer and it works.
        I found a USB to PCMCIA adapter but it is $150.00 but maybe just a USB to PCI would be cheaper if I can find one.

          dahhhhhhhh you are right Enforcer
          On another note does anyone has experience with the Valentine ONE, I got the cable and adapter from http://www.ttl2usb.com/ it connects but it doesnt really display the alerts, I tried V1VD and Software One both just display a line here and there just garbage, I am writing a script to parse the alerts recorded with the GPS coordinates and compare it againts a master list where I have all the locations of of bogus alerts and the band to silence the software automatically, any help is appreciated.

            Might be cheaper to switch to a USB wireless device, or like enforcer said, a new mobo.
