Believe it or not, I have seen this happen just because a card is not 
seated properly in the PCI slot... I'd say take care of the obvious 
fixes first (re-seat, swap with a different card or into a different 
unit, etc.). If none of those fix it, you'll either have to RMA it to 
get the configuration *ROM on the board fixed, or modify your driver to 
accept the bogus vendor ID.
