Solaris 10 cann't find my PCI device sometimes, does anybody know why?

I'm trying to develop a Solaris device driver for my prototype PCIE device. During my work, I have to power on/off my test computer frequently.

But a strange and troublesome thing is that: the Solaris 10 OS does not find my PCIE device every time when I power on the test computer.
(not listed in the 'prtconf -pv' outputs). I have no idea about why it disappeared/appeared irregularly.

The test computer is a X86 desktop PC using AMD cpu with 2 PCIE slots. I've tried to insert my device into all these two slots, phenomenon is the same.

I make sure the device is OK, it has been tested under linux and windows with the same hardware platform.

Is there any good guy knows a method to clear the issue?
