MSI K7T Turbo2 PCI problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Trying to install a PCI card - a PC Line Network 10/100mbps PCI card (Realtek chipset based) - into my mothers/sisters computer so that they can use ethernet, problem is though that when I try to boot with it in, it stops at the boot screen where it displays the CPU name etc. and reboots itself in an indefinete cycle.

Old as hell Socket A mobo I know, but anybody got any answers?

Could the specific PCI slot be defective?

could be, have you tried the card in another machine, or tried it in a different slot?

I have found that RTL chipsets, especially the RTL8139d to be the most reliable 10/100 nic I have ever used, hard to believe it would cause problems unless something was faulty.

Have you verified in bios that resource managemet is on auto? If so, have you ensured that there are no resource conflicts by re-assigning it a unique IRQ?

Tried another card in the machine/slot and tried the card on my machine. I didn't have the same problems on my machine, but maybe that's why. I'll have a look, thanks. It was on auto but i'll try re-assigning it.
