Hi,

I have a system which has been running for a number of years the current version is
Asus p5P800 SE system board
Intel CPU
1GB of RAM
PVR-350 adapter card
PCHDTV 5500 adapter card.
Mythbuntu 9.10

Over the past couple of weeks I had two lockups of the system. Last night it completely locked up and wouldn't reboot. After further investigation and taking things down to minimum configuration ie memory and GPU the system boots.
Adding in the PVR350 card system still boots.
Adding in the HDTV5500 card the system will not post, no beeps nada.

Any thoughts on if the card perhaps is bad and thus creating this problem? I've tried different adapter slots with the same result.

Jeff.

I had a system with two 5500's and eventually I ended up with this system.

I think the problem was that I had installed some low-rpm fans to keep it quiet, and over the years the system just stopped working.

However, I put a 5500 in a different system and it seems to at least boot up and see the card - maybe try that before you pitch it.

I had this same issue. I did not diagnose it properly and ended up replacing everything but the two 5500's that I had. I just tried the two 5500s in the new PC. With one of them in, it wouldn't boot at all, with the second one in, it booted once, then locked, and now it wont reboot with that 5500 installed.

There must be some reliability issue with older 5500s near as I can tell. I'm going to get two more since theyre half the price of when I got them.
