Why won't the laptop POST after installing intel wireless-n 7260 card?

I upgraded to from the atheros wifi card to the intel wireless-n 7260 for the bluetooth option, but my aspire 7560 won't POST after install. I place it in the secondary pci-e and i can load windows, and see the card, but can't use it. I've seen several other people having issues with this card, but none with my problem or a similar laptop. I should have researched installation issues prior to purchase...anywho. There is no bios upgrade to support the card. I installed the latest drivers, uninstalled, cleaned registry/cache, reinstalled...with this card in the wireless pci-e slot, aspire still won't POST. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Don't know if this is assistance or not.

The following are links to the service manual.

This one shows the Bluetooth module that they have listed for this laptop. It states that it 'features' a mini USB interface. So perhaps the BIOS has been setup to connect a USB module to the Bluetooth Interface chipset and not a PCI-e connection. I don't know, this is pure speculation on my part.

This link shows where it is located.

This one shows what you already know - the WiFi card location.
