Maybe the PCI slot lacks support for bus mastering?

So pcmcia adapter is working for all first 11 slots but only 4 PCI slots (1st, 2nd, 9th and 10th)do see my PCMCIA card.

So if i use only one PCI to PCMCIA adapters or multiple adapters, only those 4 slots are working all the time. SO if it is resource issue then at least one card work on any PCI slot but that's not the case. Please advice me to fix or find this problem.
