The Presario model number is a 2200. The card must be very short I think thaat it is called a 1/2 height card if one exist The length is short as well. The reason I asked about the Parellel option was just to see if a connection type like this exist, and I have the hardware as well. But if you can steer me to a site where I can find a Compaq card that will work That would be appreciated. I just didn't want to spend the money if it could be done Via parellel port option since I have the Laplink cable.
