The fast way to cycle any machine is to pull the plug, andwith the plug
still disconnected, cycle the power switches (the one in the back as
well as the front panel switch if you have two).    This will drain
any residual charge held in the transformers and capacitors in
the power supply.

This may be an issue with your bios doing the old plug and play
setup.  If your bios is set to plug and play, try the opposite setting.
(Note: Non PnP OS actually means that the bios will try to do
the PnP setup before system boot).

Not seeing a complete thread here, I have to ask if
you have two cards in the same machine?  If so have
you tried swapping slots?
