I have tried installing the following card into my system and the system freezes on the screen that states press F2 to enter BIOS set up. Pressing F2 does nothing the system just freezes.
Card I am trying to install:
StarTech 1 port PCI express IDE controller adapter card PEX2IDE
Computer brand PowerSpec
Desktop Board Intel D945GCNL
BIOS vers.: NL94510J.86A.0036.2009.1231.1407
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU
E7300 @ 2.66 GHz
Intel EM64T capable
Total memory: 2048MB
I am trying to install two additional non-SATA HDs
It does not matter if the HDs are connected to the card or not. Insertion of the card causes the system freeze.
I read on the internet (another site) that the audio card may be causing a conflct. I uninstalled the audio card and the system still froze when the adapter card was inserted.
Is there a BIOS setup setting that I could be missing?
I am not too familiar with BIOS settings and do not want to hapazardly change things.
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
