OK, you say you have installed the card but do you have anything on it as yet?

I would install the card with nothing attached to it with your HD's & CD-ROM drives on your normal IDE channels. Then see if Windows can find drivers for it. Hopefully it will then just shut the system down and attach the devices you require to the card, best way of doing it IMO.

You say you had no disks with it, not even a floppy? Most controllers I've ever fitted usually have the drivers on a floppy disc. Do you know what make the card is?

On the controller card, look for the FCC-id if any; if you don't know the make n model.

IMO = "In my opinion"

It should work, if it does not do a search on Google for a prog called Driver Magic and download the demo for it. You can then let it search for the correct driver for the card, I think you get 3 free downloads whilst it is still in demo mode.

i wonder if the IDE control... will have a conflict with the main 2 channel IDE.. since the motherboard.. driver was installed first before installing the controller... i remember the motherboard recommending me to install the Raid IDE driver before install the IDE bus for the motherboard... so i'll point around it.. if it doesn't like it i'll just un-install the driver and than install the IDE control driver first,,
