system: IBM Aptiva Pentium III 550mhz 196MB RAM
windows 2000 professional SP2
I have 3 PCI slots (and one AGP*1 )
1 geoforce MMX2 PCI graphics card
1 GVC v90 PCI Modem
and 2 network cards
a Netgear FA311
and a RTL8139A
I cannot get an ethernet card to install properly.
Every time I Get the install wiz saying
device not installed
data is invalid
and in DEVICE Manager ->Properties
This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)
To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.
updateing/reinatalling the driver has the same result.
I have tried the following:
lattest Win2000 drivers for both cards (from manufacture)
lattest BIOS for computer
I have swapped all the cards in various slots and both the modem and graphics card work
I have run the diag for the RTL card and it comes up fine (except for loading the driver or linking to the network)
I have removed all the PCI cards (and used a AGP Graphics card) and just intalled either card in slot 1 or 2 or 3
What can i do?
