custom computer build problems with PCI expansion slots? help please!
ASrock z77 extreme4 mobo
Intel core i5 3570K CPU
GEIL 8GB (4x2) dual channel DDR3 ram
old Samsung HDD (i plan to change this out soon)
Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit (and 12.04 32 bit on dvd)
old d-link WDA-1320 PCI WiFi card
TV/FM winTV-HVR-1600 (also PCI)
whenever i plug the WiFi card or TV tuner into the PC slot, the motherboard does not recognize it. (system browser inside the BIOS) this it getting annoying since i don't have WiFi and don't like using my old usb adapter not to mention the TV (however i think the tuner is shot, not working, it only crashes Ubuntu when it is installed.)
i don't know if this something misconfigured or something wrong with the mobo. i recently have been have problems with what i think is my HDD going bad, where Ubuntu crashes and need a fresh install i do have a 1 year extended warenty i bought from newegg to go along with the mobo. i don't have anything to plug into the other slots so i cant test them to see if they are working.
