I am going to look for a PDF file of your motherboard owners manual, I want to study the BIOS setup features.

Just out of curiosity, do you have any other PCI devices installed that you know of, that work okay?

My theory here is some BIOSes have a setting or two for the PCI slots and those settings have to be configured correctly for the PCI BUS to function.

Now that I pointed that out to you, this might help you discover a setting that is disabled, that is needed for a PCI device to work.

I also do not know if you have a special PCI slot (usually Blue in color) that is better suited for this card. ( For example: Asus has one that they call "the proprietary wireless PCI slot)

If your board has more than one PCI slot, try an alternate one for now.

These processes will eliminate a hardware issue, leaving us with only software or system settings issues to resolve.

I will get back to you if I need more info on how to obtain a .PDF file of your MB manual.

Let us know if you found your problem in your PCI BIOS settings or not.


EDIT: Opps, you never posted your motherboards info, I need the name of the motherboard manufacture and the board's model number please.
