Re: PCI Slot not detect any device
Please post questions in detail to help us to serve you better. The answer which I'll be providing you is based on assumption on the little data you have provided. I think you haven't loaded the driver for the said card and hence, your PC is unable to detect the card. The drivers are usually supplied with the card on a disc,Just run the disc and if should solve your problem. Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.

Its most probably seated ok but check that but also try another PCI slot it seems to be having a conflict with something else there. Also ive never had to use more than the standard windows drivers to install those cards. Good luck from Scott
Kindly remove the sound card out from your motherboard. Power on your computer and then go to BIOS settings. Look there for a settings relating to Audio device and then turn it off . The audio device in your motherboard will now be disable. Plug in back your soundblaster sound card, power on your computer and then install the driver for it.
With this issue it could be the Hardware / Software compatibility. The first thing to do is ensure the latest drivers are installed or the NIC. If the latest drivers are installed I would recommend replacing the NIC. They are less than $30 and they come with great drivers, and if the old NIC is onboard it would be advantageous to get it off the Motherboard. It would be best to open up the computer before you run out to get the new NIC and makesure the motherboard can support a PCI card. This card slips into the White slot that is about 3 inches long. If you have a White slot that is about 1 inch long this PCI card will not fit into it the card you will need is a PCI Express x1 NIC. The rest of the information you will need is provided by the NIC Manufacturer.
A NIC is a Network Iterface Card. Usually installed so a computer can log onto a network or use High speed internet. You can get these as internal devices ad PCI cards or externally as USB. If you go the SB route all ou have to do is plug it in, install the drivers and you're good to go. If you get an internal PCI card. You have to physically open up the case and install it (which is quite easy) and once again install some software. Either way they both come with pretty easy to follow instructions if you get lost or confused.
If you would like some suggestions as to which one to buy, just message me back and tell me where you live.
Hi stevebise, no not at all. The 2 white PCI slots on the P5LD2-VM run at the standard PCI 2.2 speed. Which is 32 bit at 33.33MHz or 133MBs. How ever your board has another PCIE port which is double the speed of a standard PCI port. This is what a PCIE 1x nic card looks like; http://www.provantage.com/startech-st1000btpex~7STRN021.htm See page 1-22 in your manual.
If your current network card seems to function in the white PCI slot as a (KillerNic), than why buy a PCI 1x nic. As they say, "Ain't broke, don't fix it".
Hope this answers your question.
see heres the thing when using VM-Ware, VM-Ware doesnt use drivers for your physical hardware, because it emulates the hardware that is seen in the hardware information of your system preferences.
So installing even drivers for the "emulated" hardware will not work, as VM-Ware uses its own drivers for the hardware, which are included with the VM-Ware Tools, if that doesnt seem to work, you may want to contact VM-Ware support, as they may have a better solutiuon.
Hi Adam, you did a great job trouble shooting your system & you even answered your own question. If one PCI slot works the other should but since you tested that you're self & the PCI slot failed than the PCI slot is bad. My guess is one or more soldered points under the PCI slot. (Underside of the motherboard) is cracked or broken. It may be possible for you to re-solder the cracked or broken joints. The only way to prove this theory will be to remove the entire motherboard from the case & visually check every single joint. There is no single driver for the PCI slot. The PCI slots are part of the chipset driver which is already installed. There is alway replacing the motherboard.
the sound card is installed into the ISA slot not the PCI slot.
clear the cmos for a minute, set it normal again.
install the sound card to the ISA slot carefully - i mean a working sound card and couple the system unit and boot, surely you will have your sound card working.
