Help please token-ring adaptor

By Dmarie ·
Hi
I have aquired a second-hand pc recently I've now sucessfully loaded windows(98)but I've had some problems with the token-ring adapter NSD14(0002)which I've removed and reinstalled with no luck. Windows prompts me that it's faulty, can someone tell me it's use as I'm a rookie! Also would this be the cause of my floppy disk drive not working any more.My pc is an IBM Pentium pro 180 with 1.6gb and extended memory of 192mb(if that helps!)
Thanks
Dawn

Tolken ring adapters are for a very specific type of network. If you do not have a Tolken-ring network, then you need to boot to safe mode, remove that Tolken Ring adapter, from Control Panel --> Network. If you have an Ethernet Network then youneed to purchase a PCI Ethernet card. If you do not have any network, then cover the slot and you should be fine. You can run Windows as a stand-alone machine -- without any network card.

The above should have no relation to the floppy disk drive not working. If you are having problems reading or writing to floppies that you know work in other computers, then replace the floppy disk drive. They only cost $10-$15.
