I just got my new Asus 8l-raiser pci riser card in the mail today (for a pic, click on the link below. Also, I attached a copy of the pic). If I do not plug any cards into either of the slots on the riser card, leaving both of them empty, and plug only the empty riser card into a pci slot on the mother board, then the pc will power on perfectly fine, just as expected. However, if I have any pci card plugged into either of the pci slots on the riser card, the pc will not power on at all. I get absolutely nothing, no power or anything. I have tested the riser card on more than one computer, and I have tested it with different pci cards plugged into it. So it is not the motherboard, and it is not the pci card that is plugged into the riser card. This leads me to think that riser card is broken. However, I am not certain of that. Does anybody have advice? Is it broken, or could it be something else?

There isn't much that can go wrong with that type of card apart from a manufacturing fault. If it was me, I would get it replaced.
The only other thing it could be is the possibility that your PSU isn't good enough. Can you have a look at it's …
