Having problems with your HP Compaq d530 SFF PC Desktop ?

Firewire PCI card not recognized

\015 I recently fixed up a d530 SFF for a friend of mine and we ran into a problem when we tried to install a pci firewire card along with the ATI PCI 7500 video card. The system doesn't recognize the firewire card at all and due to time constraints wasn't able to delve into the bios settings, but I did determine that the card is fine and it's not a driver issue.\015\012\015\012I'm looking at 2 solutions, one if there is a bios setting that will enable the second pci slot to be utilized in addition to the first slot, and second installing a low profile agp video card to free up the first pci slot to install the firewire card.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions as far as the bios fix or a suggestion for a affordable low profile agp card would be greatly appreciated.\015\012\015\012Thanks, DT\015

Answers :


Sometimes, when one is inserting a card, one does not push it firmly in place. If some contacts are not well established, the card may not be recognized.

Hope it helps.
