Want to add 2 new hard drives to PC and when i put the PCI IDE Card into Computer and turn PC on, when windows loads it just hangs on desktop and will not respond - hence cant install drivers for card.

AMD Sempron 3000MHZ processor
1023mb PC3200 Memory

Any ideas how i can get this card to work, as i need to install additional drives for work purposes

Hope someone can help me

Thanks a lot

Try the card into a different PCI slot


install the drivers first, shut down and then insert the card and boot up.
