I am using a HP Pavilion a1514n (XP). I purchased this in 2005 and am trying to install a wireless adapter in the pci slots.
I have never used these before and I am not sure if the slots are bad or if it is the adapter.
I am trying to install a Netgear WG311 into my pc. I installed the software, powered down, and installed the hardware. The next step is to power up and follow the on-screen prompts according to the instructions.
However, the power light flashes rapidly once the adapter is in the slot and the pc will not power up. When I pull the card, the pc starts up fine.
I have tried the adapter in both slots available and both produce the same results.
Any information would be much appreciated.
