I have a specific expansion card that appears to be problematic
Explanation: A problem is suspected with a particular expansion card. (This means a problem with the card itself, not a problem with the overall system caused by one or more expansion cards; look here for that.) This is typically manifested through an error message, such as a ROM checksum error or I/O parity error.
Diagnosis: Most of the problems with specific expansion cards depend entirely on the nature of the card. I can only provide some general pointers here.
