Installation
Installing the PCI Express card
WARNING! PCI Express cards, like all computer equipment, can be severely
damaged by static electricity. Be sure that you are properly grounded before
opening your computer case or touching your card. StarTech.com recommends
that you wear an anti-static strap when installing any computer component.
If an anti-static strap is unavailable, discharge yourself of any static electricity
build-up by touching a large grounded metal surface (such as the computer
case) for several seconds. Also be careful to handle the card by its edges and not
the gold connectors.
1. Make sure that your system is unplugged and that you are grounded.
2. Remove the cover of your system (see your computer's user manual for details, if necessary)
and gently turn your computer onto its side, so that the PCI Express expansion slot
openings on the motherboard are facing upwards.
3. Locate an empty PCI Express slot and remove the metal plate that covers the corresponding
rear bracket.You may need a Phillips screwdriver to perform this step. Retain the screw!
You will need it to secure the card later.
4. Gently insert the card into the empty slot, making sure it is firmly seated.
5. Secure the card in place using the screw you removed in Step 3.
6. Replace and secure the computer cover.
Driver installation
Once the PCI Express card has been installed, it is safe to power up the computer. The operating
system will detect the presence of the card and automatically install the necessary drivers.
