I presume that when you have the 82340 card installed in the PC, all other
details (cables, instruments, and so on) remain the same.

I suggest that if the 82340 card works in the PC that you determine what its
interrupt level and base address range is from HP I/O Config.  Then swap
the 82341D card with it, and use Windows Device Manager to set the same
settings as the 82340 card.

If this doesn't work, something extremely mysterious is going on.
