Add a Firewire expansion card to my Pavilion slimline 5210t

Can I add a Firewire expansion card to my HP Pavilion Slimline Desktop 5210t? Using Windows 7 64 bit. Any help you can provide about what to purchase or installation will be appreciated. I am trying to download movies from my Sony Handycam which uses the digital 8 mm band and has an output of firewire 4 pin.


It is the only card that I could find that would work with the low-profile chassis has your PC.

Please feel free to look around a few others.

Your choices are limited due to the fact that your PC requires a flat mounting bracket to secure the card.

The motherboard on your PC supports the two PCI express or PCI cards (there are 2 PCIe x 1 slots and one PCI slot as shown in the illustration below (white parallel slits at the bottom of the motherboard).

    You need an active UEFI, low profile graphics card low power with support of full size.  Sometimes graphics cards are supplied with two brackets.  Your PC has only a 270-Watt power supply, so your pickins will be limited.

    A higher power Slimline power of Athena could work in your PC.

  • HP Pavilion Slimline s5304y strange behavior and stops randomly

    To start, here is my card:

    HP Pavilion Slimline s5304y

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64 - bit SP1 Build 7601

    AMD Athlon II X processor 2 215

    4 GB of RAM, blah blah blah

    Here are the symptoms:

    -Win7 starts to act strangely, when the keys are depressed they'll keep recording (like that, but forever)

    -Then it will attempt to force the closure but I keep open Word 2007, which will block the closure and I gives me the option to cancel or to force stop word.

    -J' I usually Cancel to see what it does, sometimes it continues to operate normally, sometimes, attempts to stop become more frequent until it ask no more, and Word cannot veto the shutdown request.

    -When I look at the Event Viewer system, he says he is told what USER (me) has launched the stop, as if it were normal.

    -A little more digging in the event viewer application section says that before stopping, "HP Support Assistant Service" had a "PowerEvent handled successfully by the service" with EventRecordID of 10883.

    -Meet system Event ID 109


    EventRecordID 45150


    "The process C:\Windows\System32\winlogon.exe (USER) has launched the power off computer USER for the user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account for the following reason: no title for this reason could be found.

    Reason code: 0x500ff

    There is no indication that something went WRONG minidump, no discharges of any sort, sfc/scannow ran own just like chkdsk, memtest, tester of windows 7 and all other diagnostic tools.

    He did it before, but very rarely, so I thought nothing of it (which happened in the spans of the months apart) but now happened several times a day.

    Recent software additions:

    Installing the software and drivers Lexmark Prospect Pro205

    -Updated Nvidia graphics drivers Geforce 6150SE nForce 430 to and it's Helper service ver 295,73

    What I did to try to rectify the situation:

    -Scanned with each virus/malware free scan in existence - deleted an infected file from Java Java/CVE-2011-3544. O operate. And another unrelated to the advertising program.

    -Updated HP Assistant and Advisor

    -Updated several times with various updates for windows 7

    -Clean the case thought it was overheating, but nope - clean as a whistle, normal running time

    -Good fans checked

    -Extract from food - looked good, constant voltage

    I haven't checked the power extension cables. I heard there is a problem with shorting out on the 24-pin extensions, but I didn't have an extension of 24 pins on the power cables.

    I've heard others have had problems with HP stopping randomly with a strange behavior, so I wanted to see what you guys have to say.

    Could this be problems of power with my house? The wiring is old... Or more likely is a short circuit in the cable/PSU?

    How can I easily repair/test of this theory?

    -All right, so the system restore has nothing but destroy some files, because I couldn't not correctly backup the drive between the random stops.

    However, I found the solution to my problem, that you won't believe.

    Short answer: I replaced the stock HP keyboard (model KU-0841) who seems to have been short.

    The long answer:

    -When the computer kept shutting down even in safe mode after a destructive recovery, I started watching again material.

    -Noticed my typing would sometimes record, sometimes just go crazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy (like this).

    -Then comes the keyboard no longer works. Thus, while the veto stops with WORD 2007 and using the keyboard on the screen in Win7, I thought it was a terrible virus - it wasn't.

    -When I unplugged the USB keyboard it's a strange electric 'bzz' sound, like what you hear when static is unloaded. It turns out that the USB port has been be short-circuited by the keyboard.

    On the keyboard and the USB plug was going well, so I don't know who is to blame again, however - if someone is having the same weird problems with events of the power of the nucleus and 1074 with 0x500ff errors-try to check your hardware.

    After replacing the keyboard, everything works perfectly.

  • HP SlimLine 450 - A24: Add an expansion card 4 ports USB 3.0 PCIe to a HP 450 - A24

    Hi, new to the forum.

    I have a HP Slimline 450 - A24 and would like to know if it is possible to install a port 4 USB 3.0 PCIe expansion card?  All I could find is that the expansion port was used. Is it possible to add even 4 port USB 3.0 PCIe expansion card?

    Thanks fror your help

    Hi @gulwing1,

    That the Forums are with you! It's a good place to find the help you need, other users, the HP experts and other members of the support staff. I understand that you are looking for more information on your system and whether it is possible to put a 4-port USB 3.0 PCIe card. I'm happy to give you a helping hand with this.

    Looking at the HP Slimline 450 - a24 Desktop PC product specificationsand HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - specifications (P-nutmeg nuts) of the motherboard, System Board lists no matter what expansion slot at all.  With this in mind, you cannot use a PCIe card in this system.

    It is unfortunately not the news you wanted, but answering your question. Please mark this message as a solution. Bravo would be appreciated as well.

    I need to add a video card to run an additional monitor, I would like to know if anyone has managed to do this, and if so, could they maybe give me the information I need to order a correct map. I was recommended to use

    The EVGA UV19 seems to be a viable solution if the current integrated graphics adapter is suitable for your use.


  • HP Pavilion Slimline s3720f: what video card should I buy?

    I want to add a new video card (not too expensive) for my old HP Pavilion Slimline s3720, but I do not know what video card to buy, because there are far too many choices. I know that the new card must be low profile with a half support so it can fit into the currently available in the motherboard slot. I hope that Conect my Dell UltraSharp 1708FP 17-inch LCD flat monitor VGA on this new card to get the best resolution and graphics. Can someone give me a recommendation indicating which card to buy? Please be specific. Thank you.

    The slimelines should never require a lot of video.  Your 2008 model circa was Vista.  Updates drivers ended with WIN 7. It's a miracle you got WIN10 without drivers available is another story.  Another factor is the skinny 160W PSU. That limits your options if you have a.  The common consensus is that either.  added heat from a graphics card, the likely additonal to a new power supply really outweighed costs.

  • 15 - r132wm: I need to add a firewire port to a 15-r132wm. USB to firewire won't work. Any suggestions?

    I want to add a firewire port to a computer laptop 15-r132wm.

    It will be to connect a Sony handycam. The Sony can not use a converter USB to firewire.

    What (other than getting another computer) would not work?

    Thanks, Neal Lewis

    Nothing. It is a problem for users of the video camera. Personally, I have an older Thinkpad T61 with a firewire port, which I keep around only to connect to my Sony camcorder when necessary to remove digital movies. I put on a USB stick or SD card raw files and do the current editing on my laptop.

  • Expansion card Thunderbolt for Mac Pro desktop

    Desktop Mac Pro with OS 10.11.3.

    I plan to replace my popular BU external hard drive with a 6 TB of Raid drive.  The office is not equipped with a Thunderbolt port and would therefore add an expansion card Thunderbolt.  Any suggestions?

    Having a large number of drives 1 TB is a mess, but I do not understand there are some misgivings and other limitations as the Thunderbolt expansion card insertion location.

    I would like to add an expansion card Thunderbolt.

    It is not now, nor will there EVER be a ThunderBolt expansion card. Only computers who left the factory equipped ThunderBolt (or in the case of some systems of ASUS, compatible ThunderBolt) can use ThunderBolt.

    Intel controls custom chips, that you would need, and they don't want a ThunderBolt expansion card. Detective Conan.

  • s5510f HP Pavilion Slimline running MS Windows 7 Premium Edition, graphics card options?

    Before I disassemble my pc, I am able to add a new graphics card with HDMI output? I would use my plasma HD tv as a monitor with my wireless keyboard and wireless mouse. There is no keyboards made for my model of 'smart tv', and tab through the menu alphabet with an arrow on the remote TV is very annoying. Thank you, BAK333

    BAK333, welcome to the forum.

    While the Slimline models are not intended to be upgraded, it can be done. Here's a great thread by Erico that should help you:

    The reason why this thread is relevant is that most likely, you will need to upgrade the PSU also.  Most of the cards that are capable of providing the type of tasks you want to do will require a card with more power that the existing PSU can run correctly.

  • FireWire expansion for Touchsmart 610 1130f


    I have a 610 1130f Touchsmart, I would install a firewire port. Motherboard card I see I have available pci expansion slots, also other posts, I think this pci card is the injector for installation (for the other model touchsmart at least) 2 Port 3 b 1 a 1394 Mini PCI Express FireWire adapter card

    My question is, I am correct in my research this pci card will install on my system and if so where do the firewire install ports. It doesn't seem to be any on the body of office expansion slot (side or rear) am I missing something? or someone has one of these adapted? Thanks for all the answers in advance.

    In theory, this card would allow your Touchsmart computer with Firewire ports. However, the card is really designed for a traditional desktop computer. The card would fit into the mini-map PCIe slot, and you would have to cut a hole in your case to get the ports on the outside. Also, the map seems to use a power plug style IDE to get power / extra power to your system and it does not appear to have. If you are comfortable to change and adapt your TouchSmart for such a facility, it should work.

  • AXC-603-UR10 for cards WiFi or PCIe expansion card?

    I have an AXC-603-UR10 and I would like to add a wireless card and a PCIE video card.  The case has two spots for expansion cards, but the motherboard has only a small connector that looks like a place to add an expansion card or something like that.

    Is anyone know the part number or model number for an expansion card to go in the slot at the top of the motherboard on an AXC-603-UR10?

    Thank you.


    This model has only a half size mini-PCI Express slot for adding a LAN + Bluetooth wireless card.
