Just installed the card again, drivers weren't found but if I install them the card seems to work (mouse didn't function correctly but I have a feeling it might just be the mouse, it just lit up, so power, but no communication). I'm going to pull the card again and do a full re-install of windows.
I don't know what IRQ's are but, the card "PCI Multiport Serial controller" is listed alone on resource 11, and the only audio think I see "High Definition Audio Controller" is on resource 22, also alone.
Looks like I have a long night of backup and re-install crap. I'm super bummed because I use CS3 and that was the WORST trying to get it to function correctly. This will slow me down so much...
Everything is already messed with the rollback anyway though, even chrome is a little odd because extensions are corrupt or halfway installed now. perhaps my drivers are, too, despite the delete and reinstall... perhaps they could have left bad trace code that's screwing things up?
But it worked before? Super odd. If it does not work with the card not in, then it isn't an IRQ conflict. If you've already tried the drivers then it wouldn't be that either. Last thing to try is a fresh install and if that doesn't work then I would RMA the board as it could be a hardware fault.
Yep, all fine and dandy, put in the damn card, then realized audio wasn't working when I went online. that's pretty much where it's at now.
Thanks again for continued help in this. I do appreciate your time.
