    if you could take a few pictures of this card side and front, it would be very helpful to us in identifying it. I googled the serials you posted but they didnt yield anything. We'll need more information.

    Modem and wireless cards do not need the full width of the PCI bus and can use a short connector. Look up "mini PCIE" in your favourite search engine.

    I think such a card is nothing unusual.

    Give me 5 minutes to identify it from the numebrs you give.

    EDIT: I can't be bothered. 99%+ the card is nothing special or unusual.

    use dropbox or google drive or some other service that offers a little bit of free online storage space.
    upload your file there and then link us the image.

    take pictures of the card front and back and side
    then take a few pictures as close up as you can to any stickers with numbers and letters on them

    What the hell is the card? Is it vga card ,network card,sound card or TV tuner card ?

    Anyway what ever your card is if you have a problem with it you should tell the problem to where you bought the card.
