I have a Compaq Presario 7170, running Windows 98 an I have just bought a Netgear FA311 PCI card for it. When I put the card into the machine, Windows does not detect it - it just acts like it doesn't exist.

The card is definately insterted into the slot properly, as I have tried this a number of times. I have also tried another FA311 from my other machine in this computer, and it was not detected either, so it's not just a case of a faulty card.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? Thanks...
