I have bought a Philips Seismic Edge (PSC 705) sound card.
After I have installed the card in the computer, the sound card have NOT been detected by the system.
The sound card does NOT appear in the "PCI Device list..." at the computer start up.
I tested all PCI slots with all BIOS configurations possible.
The MB BIOS version have been updated to the last version available on the Soltek site.
The card is still NOT detected by the system.
I have tested the sound card on other two computers and the sound card is working well.
I have tested other sound cards on my computer and are working well.
I will appreciate any info or advice from you regarding this problem.

Don`t listen to that guy. Seismic Edge is a great card, I own one, my friends too and we are all very satisfied with it. Search some reviews over the net and you will see some more "scientific" opinions.
About your problem.......I think your mainboard is guilty about it and there is nothing you can do but RMA-it. Another wild guess is your SO could be corrupted. What SO do you use? If XP,....is Universal Plug and Play service started ?
