Default Hardware problem

Hi there,
I'm new to these forums and I wasn't quite sure if this is the right place to post this sort of problem but here it goes. I recently installed an avermedia 771 DVB-T and I have had some major problems lately. I know what I have to do about those problems but now I've struck one that I can't overcome. One day, I uninstalled the aver card, including the drivers and when I placed the card back in the PCI slot, the computer won't detect it. I am running windows XP home on an sg-72 motherboard. Could anybodyhelp me out? Has this card faulted? any help would be apreciated.

Try and place the card into another PCI slot that might do the trick.

Static Electricity may have fried your poor card.

That's what I thought>I'll try another card but are there any known errors with pci slots?

The short answer is: You can't fix damage caused by static electricity. The damage is usually cause irrepairably to integrated parts. I suppose you could fix it if you wanted to spend the time to go through every single part to make sure it works, however, it would be incredibly time consuming, and generally not economical.
