I have a suspected system failure related generally to expansion cards in the system

Explanation: A problem condition with the system overall is arising that implies a possible problem related to one or more of the expansion cards in the system. (This means a problem with the system caused by expansion cards, not a problem with a specific card in a system that otherwise works; look here for that.) This typically means an error message or a failure of the system to boot.

Diagnosis: The wide availability of many different types of expansion cards means that the chances of a conflict between two of them, or between them and the system, are significant. Resource conflicts are the most likely problem.
