Re: PCI Express Parallel Port Card

Hello pt046166 and welcome to community,


The issue is due to the card incompatibility.

Please check with another card.


Best Regards,

Re: PCI Express Parallel Port Card

I'm having the same problem. I inserted a Syba card and it will not boot.  I sent it back to Amazon as defective. I then bought a StarTech dual com port card and it will not let the H415 even boot up.  What is my problem here?


Thank You.
