I recently bought a belkin firewire 3-port PCI card but after slotting it in and turning my PC back on nothing happened (although there is possibly one very very quiet click). I took it back out and booted fine. I tried it in a different slot and again nothing happened.
I have another PC and so tried it in there and it was fine so there is no problem with the card itself.
I am running XP SP2
My specs are
AMD Duron 800mhz
SB live sound
On board gfx
Don't really know much about modem but is dial up and is in the small slot (smaller than PCI)
I'm not at all clued up about motherboards but I've read a few of the chips as follows:
686 AMIBIOS AZ41 2773 (this is on a sticker, there's something written underneath)
ITE IT8705F 0138-BXA M8R410
(LOGO) 0135 LF-H50X
There's also a tiny chip which has realtex written on it and some tiny writing. If you need this info I'll get out my magnifying glass.
The card I'm trying to install is an IEEE1394 one.
Please can someone help but try to keep it relatively step-by step as, although I'm a competent user, I'm by no means a guru. If there's any more info you need let me know.
