A switch works at the data link and physical layer. if you can't ping then these layers are not working, hence you've got A BAD SWITCH!

you have a link lite but you cannot ping? I would check the NIC media type configuration on the pcs, try locking them down to 10 mb half duplex, just for a test. what brand, model switch?

Perhaps the mac address is not right or the V-LAN setting is wrong.
