hi

i've recently put together an old system to use as a webserver with my broadband connection, which uses a USB modem. The system has onboard USB, but the motherboard connector is not there (its an AT case, and the board is AT/ATX), so thats useless. I brought a 4x USB PCI card, which occupies the single PCI slot on the motherboard, and it won't boot.

It boots fine without the card, and the card works fine in moy other system, and I tried a different PCI card in the same (and only) slot, and that worked fine.

It was mentioned in another thread, for somebody with the same problem that it could be that the PSU dosn't have enough juice.

The systems got a 230v PSU, which isn't alot, but theres not alot plugged in to it. (Check spec).

I have also tried disabling the onboard USB, to no effect (it was mentioned in the other post that this wouldn't have been the case, and also it shouldn't be that the new card is USB 2, and the onboard is USB 1)

So..... anybody had this problem or got any ideas?

Heres the spec

VIA Apollo MVP3 chipset (is that the same as the MB?)
- Board has onboard everything, none of its being used apart from the graphics.

Cyrix 686 II 333mhz
128mb PC100 ram
8.4gb Quantum Fireball
ISA BNC Network adapter
4x USB 2.0 PCI card

Cheers

Dan
