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?
