@FVENOM21 , welcome to the forum.

 

What is the full model or product number of the computer? I need this information to review the specifications of it. Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information. Here is a guide to help you find it: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07555

Thank you for the additional information, @FVENOM21!

 

Here is a card that should work for you:  https://www.startech.com/Cards-Adapters/FireWire/3-Port-2b-1a-1394-PCI-Express-FireWire-Card-Adapter...

 

I contacted StarTech's Customer Support and he said that it would work in the PCIe x4 slot on your motherboard.  Their products are a bit more expensive, but I know they make high-quality products.  If you decide not to use it, this is a good example of what will work.
