Caps/Num lock blinking 5 times (or 6 ?) after wifi card replacement

Hi everyone,

 

So I recently bought this wifi card to be compatible with my hackintosh that I just installed. The installation went fine, but after replacing the wifi card, I couldn't boot anymore, and the caps and num lock keys blinked 5 times and then the fan started spinning very fast, making a loud noise. I waited almost 1 minute and powered it off. I tried everything, I successfully get to mac loading screen two times, but the loading bar stopped at about 15% and I got this message "panic(cpu 2 caller" in the top left corner of the screen. So I put the old wifi card, everything worked fine again (excepted wifi on mac obviously).

 

So I don't know what to do. In my school we all have this computer and some of my friends installed hackintosh without having this problem, and with the same wifi card. The only difference with my computer is that I got my motherboard replaced about 1 week ago, but there shouldn't be any difference because that was done by an HP technician so the motherboard should be the exact same as the old one...

 

One of my friend told me about a bios whitelist, that could be the cause of the problem. He told me to put adhesive on two specific pins of the wifi card to bypass it but that didn't change anything.

 

I checked this page and apparently these 5 blinks mean a general system board failure. That seems illogic, my motherboard have been replaced 9 days ago... but below I see that 6 blinks mean a BIOS authentification failure, actually I don't know if it blinks 5 or 6 times, because at the beginning, the num lock key blinks one time really fast and then the caps lock key starts blinking with num lock, so I don't know if it's 5 or 6 but a BIOS authentification failure seems more logic to me because of what my friend told me about the white list...

 

Thanks to anyone who will try to help.

Problem "solved" :

 

I tried with the wifi card of a friend who has the same wifi card, it worked fine, on the other hand, he tried with mine and it didn't worked. So the card is defective.
