Adding PCI USB card

  the-george 20:09 17 Feb 07

Just got a 2nd hand card to fit to an older PC - AMD k6 500MHz 3d processor with 256 Mb Ram (running ME)that does not have any USB connection.
When I fit it the Pc will not boot up - no signal going to monitor. When card removed it boots fine.
Swapped slots with sound card - latter fine but still no joy with card./
Is the card kaput?
Or is a compatibility problem

Hi, it should be compatible - probably kaput card.

See the ME section at:

ME is recently newly installed - was previously 98.
It cannot be a driver or ME problem as the machine does not even get to boot up = no video signal, no single beep.

So, I figured the card was kaput or there was a hardware compatibility issue.

tend to think it is the card like technotiger.

Sounds like the card is broken.
