The resolution was to pair it with the motherboard it worked with. I could not get it to work with my motherboard at the time, but it worked perfectly fine in an older P35 motherboard I had dedicated as an HTPC build (and later a budget gaming rig for my brother).
Unfortunately, there is no way to tell if your card will react the same way or not, short of buying different motherboards second hand. I do not recommend doing that, as the money spent towards trying to get a dinosaur of a GPU to work, could be spent towards buying a much newer used GPU that will blow the GTX285 out of the water.
