WIN95 Restart Problem with AT/Lantic Card
Posted on 1997-05-02
OK, here goes it.
I own an IBM Aptiva M53 Pentium 100 w/16MB RAM & National Semiconductor AT/LANTIC EtherNODE 16-AT3 Card.
System works fine, Networking is fine, running Adapter card to a Magitronic 9 port ethernet minihub. Hub then connected to Gandalf Lanline 5242i.
When I select Restart from the Shutdown Menu in Win95 or an installation program wishes to restart or any other application wishes to restart, here's what occurs :
WIN95 shuts down properly, then my system begins it's startup sequence, I get the IBM Screen w/ squiggly box in the upper right corner & F1 for Setup in the bottom left.
The System then Freezes up. It briefly accesses Drive A: then Drive C:, but I never gets as far as the system Memory test.
SOLUTIONS THUS FAR:
I have Identified the problem as being my Network card or WIN95 interpratation of it, because the problem does not occur if I remove the Adapter card from WIN95, (Not Physically removing it from the system) just removing it in the network properties.
This is a problem that I can live with if I have to, but if there is a viable solution I would like to hear it.
