mprexe errors when nic card is not conne

By rgallivan ·
We have several clients on Toshiba laptops who are having trouble booting when their NIC cards are not connected to the network. I get an MPREXE not responding when I check for errors. Our quick fix so far is for the client to remove the NIC card when not logging on to the network. Would prefer to find a better solution. Currently using Client32 version 3.1.0.14

I still suggest removing the NIC cards, when they aren't in use. The notebooks should start a lot faster then, as they don't have to load the network drivers and services. Another advantage is that the powermanagement works better when the NICs are removed (Standby and suspend to disk modes). You can connect the notebook to the network while running just by inserting the NIC and you should then get the login Screen.

You might check Novell's knowledgebase if you have not already, at www.support.novell.com. Click on Knowledgebase at the top of the screen and check out TID # 10012061. That might help you troubleshoot it, since it is a wily one.

I would try setting up a second profile on the laptop and disabling the NIC (start/setting/control panel/device manager) in that profile. This should give you the same effect as physically removing the NIC.

I don't think you should have to have the users remove cards when not being used. I don't in my Toshiba laptop.

Have you seen the Novell TID # 2907849.

Hope this helps.

Stan :)

Hopefully, you have gotten this error fixed by now, but just in case you have not I am going to send you a file that should fix this problem.
