installed pci card - computer won't boot
Posted on 2008-10-05
I have an Intel Pentium D computer.
On the motherboard are two PCI slots. One is in use, the other I tried to install a card containing firewire ports.
But after I installed it, the computer wouldn't boot up. I also tried installing a card containing USB ports, and it wouldn't boot up.
Both cards worked fine in the 1st PCI slot. It's the 2nd one I'm having problems with.
I posted this question to another board and someone said "May not be the slot itself, but a hardware interupt conflict." But did not offer a solution. What exactly is a hardware interrupt conflict, if that's even the problem, and how could that be resolved?
