Default Vantec PCI Fan Card

I just got one of these and i put it in the PCI slot next to my AGP video card and i turned on the computer, but all it did was light up and the comp turned off. I took it out, and the comp turned on. I put it back and it didn't. I am confused, does anyone have any experience with these??/

thanks

list your systems specs and any additions (i.e- pci cards, fans, video cards, etc.) then tell us your power supply

oh yeah, and the only thing i did before installing the card for the first time was i moved the sound card from its original postition because it was right next to the agp and it was pretty pointless to put the vantec anywhere else. so i took out the sound card and moved it over 2 slots and i installed the vanctec
