    It could simply be your version (or Service Pack level) of Windows doesn't recognize the card. That or BIOS settings.

    See if you have an option in the BIOS for "Plug-n-Play OS" and set this to "NO" for a test. This will force the POST stage to allocate an IRQ and configure the card into I/O space prior to Windows. This should, at the very least, show the card in the Device Manager with a yellow (!).. if not add it with generic drivers.

    You should also ensure you have the latest BIOS flashed for your mainboard. Newer BIOS's will detect more hardware.

    Good luck!
