This is a very old computer with a board that needs to be installed on a new computer. The only markings I see on mobo is slot a2 and slot b2 at the smaller end. I thot it was a agp slot but I don't think so. Here is a link to the pic of the slot. Any help would be greatly appreciated thnx in advance

Thanks Roodo. I have never heard of that slot type. After searching google, it looks like I will have to build a computer with a mobo that has a ISA slot to use this old card...that sound right to you?

Wow, That is a ISA slot. You will have a very hard time finding anything that has one of those.

They were used in the 80s and 90s

 

I believe that any you find will be expensive Industrial motherboards or really old used consumer level computers. The reason You may find industrial motherboards is some businesses are still using ISA cards that would be super expensive to replace, if they can even be replaced. In some cases the company that made them is long gone and they control expensive equipment.

 

If Your card uses both of the black slots then it is a 16bit card from what I remember.

 

Good Luck

Another difficulty may be that the software for the card won't run in a fast computer. Is the old computer dead?

Haven't tested the software yet, and no the computer isn't dead yet. It's for a Hunter Alignment machine in a Tire Store

Ah, Why not just let Hunter take care of it? I know they have people go around to do repairs, I sold more than one power supply to one of there technicians over a period of time.

 

Good Luck

Yep, that's an old computer with a ISA slot. I have one of those. :-)  Edit: used for an old Zip 100 scsi card.

 

I believe it's a Tyan 1684.

Here is a manual for it. It does have a 4X AGP slot but isn't shown in the picture.

I have several older mainboards that would fit, but if the owner has moved on and wants to sell that card please let me know.

LOL your all wrong .. its an EISA slot

 

EISA 1988 [6]   20 MByte/s IBM clones

32-bit version of ISA-16 more or less.

I am obviously wrong so I will go eat some crow.
