    No. Check you Mobo manual for availability of a Expansion slot for Serial port. If yes, You can buy one and connect an extra serial port to it.

    buy a pci-based serial port card,its available with any hardware vendor and won't cost much,alternate method is converters like serial to usb converters.I don't have any idea about price of these converters
