I would like to put a wireless card in an old [1995 vintage] Packard Bell computer I use to store pictures and other files. I bought one recently, and the card promptly burned up and locked the computer to the point that it would not even boot up. As soon as I removed the card, the old PC started working fine again. Could there be a voltage or some other compatibility issue here because of the age of the computer, or did I simply get a defective card? Thanks.
