    I have just purchased a Pinnacle Studio DV for editing my digital videos.
    I tried to install the firewire card that came with it but my PC had problems reconising the card so PC World gave me a different make of card.
    After installing it I could not even switch my PC on!!! It was like there was no power going to the PC, not even a light on the tower. I took the card out and straight away the pc worked again!!
    Does anyone know why this is so and is it something simple ( I hope)
    I am running windows XP and have updated my drivers for the VIA chip as sugested by PC World..


    Many thanks
