Your motherboard only has PCIe x1 slots (as you found out) to install devices such as a firewire card.
This is the type you need:
Just do a search by the form factor which would be PCIe x1.
The model I posted above is for up to 800 MBPS transfer speeds.
There are cheaper ones, but this one seemed to have the best reviews.
Looking at the picture of the motherboard for your HP Pavilion 500-23w, you cannot add any kind of expansion card whatsoever.
