Hi,

 

Based on the following specs:

 

   http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c03975432#N90

 

It has:

 

Expansion Slots:

 
  • 1 PCI Express x16 (Gen3.0)
  • 3 PCI Express x1 (Gen2.0)
  • 1 half-length mini card

Any standard PCIe Gen 2 - USB card will do the job such as:

Hi BH,

Thanks for the response.
Yes, based on the specs, I thought any 2nd gen card would be fine.
But the generic one I bought today locked up the computer after installation so I removed it straight away.

I will look at the links you have attached.

Thanks again. R
