I just bought a POST card to fool around with. It is a PCI/USB/PARALLEL card. It also came with a tiny cable that has two tiny female connectors on each end(see pic). It looks like it might connect to the bios jumper group but I could be completely wrong there. Which brings me to my question. Does anyone know how to use it on a laptop via the USB connection and the cable.  I cant find a lick of information on how to use it, not in the manual nor on the web. I did find something that said to connect the parallel and the USB at the same time but since when has a laptop had a parallel connector?

Just pulled up the card and looked at the box contents

one of them is a user's manual - did you get one?

If not, did you go to the manufacturer's site to see if they have one you can download?

Keep us posted

A manual came with it but it has no installation instructions what so ever. All it has is code definitions basically. I cant figure out who the manufacture is either. There's no names on the package and I tried googling the numbers on the package but found nothing. Its kind of sketchy because the English in the manual is absolutely horrendous. Despite that, the card does power up when I plug it up via USB cable but doesn't read anything on boot. Im imagining I have to connect the small wire to something also.
