Sam, Customer Support
We're sorry to hear that you're having trouble with PCIUSB7! There are a number of reasons a computer may fail to boot into its operating system after connecting new peripherals to it. Please ensure that the card is fully seated in the PCI slot its installed in. If you are booting the computer with a USB device connected to it, you can also ensure that your primary boot device is set to top priority in your computer's BIOS. If you continue to have any problems, we recommend contacting one of our Technical Advisors for troubleshooting at https://www.startech.com/support.

The PCIUSB7 has an IDC USB header on it, that allows for connecting two USB ports. This can be used to connect a PC case's front IO USB 2.0 ports or can be used with an adapter for 2 additional internal or external ports. For recommendations on USB header adapters, or more information on our products please feel free to contact us. We have Technical Support Advisors available 24 hours, 5 days a week at 1-800 265-1844 or chat.startech.com.
