My bet is on that PVR 350. They're extremely picky about their 
motherboards and PCI slots.
Try a different PCI slot. If you exhaust every PCI slot on the board, 
try a different board.

I have an AOpen mobo that can only take the 350 in one of the three 
available slots without
locking up. I also have an intel mobo that can't take it at all. Good luck!
