I just added a NVIDIA card into my system. I use this for a project studio and have a FireWire card in my PCI slot that was working fine before i added the GFX card. I’m wondering if the gfx card is stopping my computer from recognizing the FW card because it took control of audio and video?

If you need any more info lmk. Thanks.

Ok, so it is a pci card. Do you have the latest bios for your mobo?
There should not be a probleme withe the gpu and add-on card.
How old is the psu? Make and model?
Tbh i havent updated the bios...its an older computer but new... the computer shop where i was living had some prebuilts they did and at the time i was looking for a system that would run my older equipment so i grabbed it up...

this is all i really have on it

I don't know of a reason your card shouldn't work. Since you have two PCI slots you might try the other one. The memory mapping and other things is different with the two slots.

Did you have to make any BIOS changes to get the NVIDIA card to work ?

I didn’t it worked great after i installed the drivers for it....and the FireWire was working before i installed that...

Im going to update the bios and see if that sorts out the problem and if that doesn’t work I’ll try the other pci slot
