I need to move the Atheron Wireless LAN card up to the next PCI slot so that I can install a new Radeon 6770 GPU. However, when I move the LAN card to either of the other to slots, the PC will begin to boot but then give a blank screen with a green bar at the top. If I move the LAN card back to the bottom slot, it will boot fine and allow me to log into Windows.
Any ideas would be appreciated, I've tried all I know to do.
Windows 7 64
AMD Phenom II X4 910
Motherboard - H-RS880-uATX (Aloe)

The motherboard in the e9220y doesn't have a PCI slot only PCI-E slots.
Try clearing the CMOS after the card is moved. The specifications indicate that the PCI-E x1 slots can be used for a network card.
The bottom slot is commonly used for the network card. That slot is designated J6 on the Aloe motherboard.
The PCI-E x16 slot (J3) is to be used for video cards.
My advice is to leave the card in J6.

Leave the network card in J6. J6 is the end slot. You don't need to move it when installing a video card J3 (PCI-E x16 slot).
Are you getting to the HP splash screen?

The wireless card for e9220y normally is in slot J6 when the PC is shipped from HP. Was your PC changed or modified since it shipped from HP?
Do you have any other network cards installed in the PC such as in the mini-PCI-E slot?
Use a flashlight and carefully inspect the PCI-E x1 slots for damaged connector pins.
