In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

Updating drivers can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Will the drivers come with an installer? Will you need to uninstall the old drivers first? Many drivers these days do come with an installer, which simplifies the process dramatically.

Reviews 1 Port PCI Express DB-25 Parallel 25 pin Adapter Card - SPP/EPP/ECP (LP Bracket Incl.) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The PCIe worked perfectly and was straight forward to fit. I installed the 1 Port PCI Express DB-25 Parallel 25 pin Adapter Card so that I could run an old printer. I had tried using a USB to parallel lead but this proved unreliable. The PCIe worked perfectly and was straight forward to fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Windows 7 and an old laser printer I bought an old HP Laserjet printer and wanted to run it on my pc which has Windows 7 Ultimate and no parallel port on the motherboard. I tried a USB to centronics cable (also from Scan) but found that, although it recognised the printer was there, it just wouldn't print for some reason. I tried everything I could think of but couldn't get it to work... In the end I bought this PCI Express Parallel card and a parallel to centronics cable and it worked first time. If you've got an old laser printer and want to run it on a pc with no parallel port on the motherboard, I reckon this will do it for you.
