Most monitors plug into the video card. I doubt you can do without that. I've never heard of a USB device for a monitor. One option might be an external modem.
I need to install a firewire PCI card in my Compaq computer. One problem, though. All my slots are full. I am trying to figure out if I can replace one of the following three PCI cards:
the network interface
I use all of the above, but I need to know if
1. I can use a converter to convert the monitor cable to usb and plug it into one of my many usb outlets. If so, I need to know where I would find such a thing and what type of cable it is. (There's no label on it.)
2. Is there a card I could use to combine the modem and network (thus freeing up one of the ports)? (I use both of them.)
I would VERY much appreciate any help you all could give!!!
