Question I found a little card inside my computer, but what is it for?

Hi.

I just found an old gateway 2000 desktop computer hiding on a corner in my attic. I opened it and I found this strange little card inside. I have no idea what it is and what it is supposed to do. Maybe anyone knows?

When I turn the computer on, it starts to display some numbers and letters, changing every couple of seconds and all of the LEDs light up. I searched in google anything that I could see in the card, but nothing related came up.

I took some pics with my webcam, I apologize for the bad quality but it’s the only digital camera I've got.

Default That looks ALOT like....

A BIOS diagnostic LED.....the Abit KV8-Max 3 has one, too. But it;s not a card, it's onboard
