Hardware Installation
General instructions for installing the card are provided
below. Since the design of computer cases and
motherboards vary, refer to your computer’s reference
manual for further information, if needed.
Static Electricity Discharge may permanently damage
your system. Discharge any static electricity build up in
your body by touching your computer’s case for a few
seconds. Avoid any contact with internal parts and
handle cards only by their external edges.

Turn OFF the power to your computer and any
other connected peripheral devices.
Unplug the power cord from the back of the
computer.
Remove your computer’s cover.
Remove the slot bracket from an available PCI slot.
Change JP1 and JP2 jumper settings to the desired
voltage only if your serial device needs additional
power from the serial port. However, most serial
devices do not require additional power. For more
information see Jumper Settings on page 2. The
jumpers can be removed if power is not required.
To install the card, carefully align the card's bus
connector with the selected PCI slot on the
motherboard. Push the board down firmly, but
gently, until it is well seated.
Replace the slot bracket's holding screw to secure
the card.
