PCI Post Card



A PCI Post Card or Post Diagnostics Test Card is a PCI compatible expansion card that when connected to a malfunctioning PC, searches and then reports any problems in the form of an error code found on the card's LCD display. These codes can then be cross-referenced with an error code chart included with the card, in order to pinpoint the problem. This card is often used by PC builders and technicians in an effort to reduce troubleshooting time.
