Installing additional USB2 card

I have a HP Pavillion p6250t desktop computer and wish to know if it is possible to install an additional USB2 card.

 

Having looked a the rear of this computer I could not locate a "normal" available slot even though no other cards have been installed since its purchase.

Re: Installing additional USB2 card

Hi,

 

Based on this, it has few free Expansion Slots:

 

  • PCI : 1
  • PCI Express x16: 1
  • PCI Express x1: 2

Definitely you can put a PCIe USB2 (or even USB3) card to your machine. You should see few Expansion slots at the back similar to these:
