Add USB ports to your computer

by on April 14, 2010

Q: I have an older computer that does not have USB ports and I am wondering if there is anyway to add or install USB ports to the computer.

A:If you have a PCI slot available inside your computer then you should be able to easily install a PCI to USB 2.0 card like the Syba SD-VIA-5U 5-port (4+1) USB 2.0 PCI Card, VIA Chip. There are many PCI to USB 2.0 cards avaiable and most will do exactly what you need for between $10 to $30 online or maybe as much as $50 at a local store.

Just so we are all on the same page the image below has 5 white slots and those are PCI slots. So if you have any of those available in your computer then you should be good to go!
