Quote DGL.:


Just make sure the adaptor has a TI chip and you should be fine.
And it needn't be expensive either, my £300 core i3 fujitsu has an express card slot and it's brand new.




This is very dangerous advice in my opinion. Just because something *should* be fine, does not mean it *will* be fine. My experience with the io26 is that it will most likely *not* be fine with a PC, TI chipset or not. You shouldn't mislead the OP if you don't not have direct experience with a laptop PCI express card, and an io26. He might get lucky, of course, or he might find he has spent £300 and has nothing but major headaches and wrecked recordings to show for it. But he knows it works with his Mac, so Johnny H's advice to buy a new screen and fit it himself seems like the best bet to me. Don't expect a cheap Windows laptop (or even an expensive one) to work properly with such a fussy piece of hardware as the IO26, especially via an adaptor card.
