PCI

How can I tell what version of PCI I have?
Is it possible to upgrade if my version is not 2.1 and I need it to be 2.1? How would I do that, upgarding the BIOS? Changing the processor?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Somewhere about the P100 (that's Pentium 100) machines you can't find less than PCI 2.1. Next time tell more so people can see if your motherboard has it or not.

The PC is only about 2-3 years old. HP Pavilion 770C, P4 1.9GHZ. Since I haven't heard back from Soundblaster on my Audigy 2 ZS issue, I thought I would check the PCI version to verify if it is at least 2.1 compliant as that is a requirement and the only item that I couldn't verify on my own.

So, there is no way that my PCI version isn't 2.1 compliant.

There is no known P4 that is not PCI 2.1.

I hope that answers this one.

How about a post about your issue?

In reply to: Re:Re:PCI (version)

May I suggest this?

Rather than ask about a side issue of your problem, why not just create a new post detailing the issue, the hardware and what problems you are having.

As it stands, the two pieces of "hardware" should be compatible. Of course, software and operating systems may beg to differ. And if a buyer got a defective card, they usually spend weeks pondering how to determine that. My answer? If a product doesn't perform for you, then pack it up and return it as defective. Quickly.
