Good card – PCI PC Diagnostic Card Reviews

posted by hgfischer on 08/20/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Better price
- Good construction
- Two LED displays (both sides)
- Can be used with any computer with Parallel port (old printers) also, including old laptops.
Cons:
- Incomplete manual
- Does not comes with Parallel cable (DB25)
- USB is only for power when using Parallel connection, not for diagnostic
Other:
Waiting for my MB fail again to see if it really will be usefull.
I'm not a hardware professional. Just using it to try to recover a bad MB from an unknown black screen during boot.
Bottomline:
USB or Parallel is for when not using as PCI.
JP2 is to connect to MB speaker using the cable that comes with this board.
This infos was not in the manual.
