onboard network suddenly dead
Posted 22 April 2009 - 11:04 PM
But then, everything went wrong. The network suddenly started failing.
Disable and Enable eventually didn't help anymore. So I booted to XP, to see if that was the problem. But sadly, no help
I did get the NIC te be recognized, and to identify if there was a cable connected or not, but that was it. Nothing more.
It's an nForce board (nForce4 series I think, ASUS M2N4-SLI m/b), anyone had this problem?
I luckily had an old Intel Pro/100S adapter in the closet, so, I do have network, but I hate spending a PCI-slot on a network card! I'm used to having my TV card there. But no PCI-slots left now

my Nforce board just stopped being able to communicate via either LAN port.
Everything seemed to be OK- but no internet.
After trying everything else I finally flashed the bios-
everything has worked perfectly since then.
It seems the bios was corrupted and it was affecting my LAN port.
It only takes a few minutes- give it a try.

I uninstalled the drivers completely, hard-resetted the BIOS (jumper-switch), reinstalled the NIC. All working again.
After that, I just changed my BIOS back to the settings I had (OC'd to 125%, my CPU's optimal performance for some reason)
Everything is working fine again. (Ow, and while I had my case open, I did some more cable-management )

It failed on me, about 20 minutes after my previous post. Reverted back to the PCI-card. All working again now, but I'm still confuzzled as of why and how this happened.
Dang, no more free PCI slots!
