Trouble with LAN Card

  1. Hello guys, this may sounds weird to you all, buat this is what really making me sick..
    I've been using my computer for nearly 3 years, so far so good. Recently I Applied for a ADSL connection and that means I need another LAN plug than the one I have in my motherboard. My motherboard is ASUS P4S800D and it has SiS-900 PCI. So I bought a new D-Link DFE-529TX (an usual common LAN Card). After I install the driver and plug the device, my computer won't detect the LAN Card. I tried plugging it into all the PCI slot but still couldn't be detected. I'm sure my PCI ports are working, coz it used to be a dial up modem in the PCI slot. I tried to install a fresh windows XP, still can't. But when I tried it in my sister's compie, it works as usual, no problem. So what's wrong with my computer? is it the motherboard?

    Please help me.. :dead:

    Did you check your device manager and install any software that came with it.

    There is a possibility that you are conflicting with something else on your system.

    run winmsd on the command line and look for conflicts
