Asus P5N-D 2nd PCI slot problems

I just upgraded my system to SLI meaning that I had to move my network adapter down to the second PCI slot rather than the first. It was working fine but now Windows gives me the 'No new hardware' treatment when I try to find it in device manager. Seeing as it was working before I think it's to do with my board not wanting to use the second slot rather than the first. Is there something in the BIOS that I've set wrong?

Can anyone help me?

Thanks all.

Just to be a bit more specific...


Wireless card:

The card is in the 2nd PCI 2.2 slot and I cannot put it in the first because my second 9600gt is in the way. The LED on the wireless card does not come on at all. I am using a different PSU from before. Windows will not recognise its existence.

If you only use one 9600 graphic card and put the network adapter to the second PCI device, could the PC recognize the device?

I've fixed it now thanks. It was just that the slot needed cleaning.

Thanks anyway!
