What card is in one of the expansion slots of my computer?

They are two connections, presumably input/output, in one of the expansion slots of my computer. They are threaded on the exterior and look like you could screw a tv coaxial cable onto them, but they're too small. Plus a gold wire is sticking out of them a bit, instead of allowing from the insertion of a wire as would be the case with coaxial tv cable. Some sort of cable must screw onto them, does anyone have any idea what these connection are? My skimpy computer manual doesn't help and I haven't even been able to find an pics of these connections on the internet.

Maybe it's a Bluetooth expansion card? It sort of looks like this pic, the connections are threaded and widely spaced, although with mine the two green lights are both on the same side. But it looks the closest that I've found.

Sounds like your video/graphics card. They tend to be largest as they usually have their own processor (GPU) and memory plus fan. They have a lot of I/Os on them as well for a variety of different connections, VGA, HD, TV in/out, etc.

Thanks for your guess r4, but that's not it. We opened it up and the card is small, no fan. It only has two connections, threaded as if for coaxial tv cable but too small. I'll bet it is a bluetooth/wi-fi card, which connect by cable to little antennas (see r3 pic.) One side for bluetooth and the other for wi-fi.
