You may have ISA devices even if you don't have any ISA slots on your motherboard. Until quite recently (and possibly even still today) it's been used an on-board bus to talk to legacy devices like PS2 and serial ports and floppy controllers. I guess it was easier to include ISA support in new chipsets than to redesign those legacy devices to work with a more modern bus.
