I have an older computer that still has USB 1.1. I know, it's lame. So instead of shelling out the cash that I should, I decided to continue being a cheap sunovagun and just opted to buy a USB 2.0 PCI card. When I put the card in, the computer will start for less than a second and then nothing. Once removed, my computer started up, got past the login screen, and then automatically restarted twice, giving me a 'The system has recovered from a serious error' or a similarly phrased error, suggesting that it may be a hardware issue.
I have tested the card in more than one slot(I only had two open) and a no go in either. In all instances the card was cleanly pushed in all of the way into the computer.
If anyone has anything that can help, I would appreciate any assitance.
For more specifications, I have a Dell Dimension XPS B600r. I have added a secondary hard drive, and a 128MB video card, NVidia Ti 4200, which I do use the s video on to use my television as a second monitor. I have added a LiteOn 20X DVD writer, as well as a generic wired ethernet card. Those are in addition to the standard HD/cd writer/processor/ram. I have a Pentium 3 gigahertz processer with 256 megs of Ram.
There are five slots, plus the video card slot. From the buttom up, the bottom slot has my sound card, then there is a blank space, then my unused modem, then my ethernet card, then another blank space.
This is the card I purchased and recieved tonight.
Any help would be much appreciated.
PS Windows XP SP3 with all the latest updates.
