Linksys Network Card loads down bus when plugged in to new computer

I have a Linksys EtherFast 10/100 LAN card which has worked perfectly in one computer for years. I removed it and plugged it into 3 didfferent PCI slots in a new motherboard ASUS A7V333. The new computer works perfectly until I plug in the Lan card. When I boot there is no video at all. The monitor does not get any signal. As soon as I remove the card all is fine. I even tried different video cards (AGP and PCI) whtih no change. It is obvious that the bus is being shorted or blocked but the card fits perfectly and I made sur eit was all the way in each slot I tried.
I replaced the LAN card in the original computer and it works perfectly.
Why is this card loading down or blocking the PCI bus on the new ASUS ?
Since three slots all have the same result, I do not think it is the motherboard. There are no jumpers on the card.
I do not see how buying another LAN card will solve this.
Anyone had this problem and solved it?

Have you tried resetting the BIOS to defaults?

Since the LAN card is known to be good, my suspicion is a problem with your motherboard.

I'd first take slink9's suggestion to reset your BIOS settings to the default condition ESPECIALLY if you've messed with them.

It could very well be that the PCI bus is defective on this motherboard.  Do you have any OTHER PCI cards you can test in the thing?

I just had this same experience. It turns out that you need to do the following:
1) take out the NIC card
2) log into XP
3) goto device manager
4) goto network adapters
5) disable the firewire adapter 1394...I think
6) power down system
6) re-install LinkSys NIC
7) power on system.

This worked for me like a charm. I think that the IRQ is enabled by default for firewire. Let me know how it goes.
