network card problems

Some hardware just does not function together.

First, try the NIC in a different slot.

Next, are the drivers actually for XP?

Finally, try a different brand network card.

I have a NIC that when installed in a specific motherboard, the PCwill not boot!
Installed a different brand card, no more problems.

also check the irq and i/o settings, if swapping the slot wont help
