Hey.. I am really stuck.

I just bought a new ethernet card, and when I put it in my video card won't work anymore.

But when I take it out again it works fine.

I guess something is overloaded or lacking power somewhere but I dont know whether to buy a new case or a new motherboard or something else entirely.

I am really flummoxed. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Anyway.. thanks!

Oh and just to be clear - the vid card still has power because the fan is on, even with the ethernet card in. Also, I have tried with 2 different monitorrs, same problem. They both just stay in power saving mode and wont snap out of it.

But as soon as I take out the ethernet card it works fine.

It sounds like the PSU doesn't have the power, or the Ethernet card is faulty. Either way, the PC would fail to POST. You would get spinning fans, but nothing else.
