I have about 7 switchports where I cannot get any network connectivity

I have about 7 switchports where I cannot get any network connectivity.  I plug my laptop into another port and it works fine.  All ports have identical config.  One difference is that the link light stays solid on the ports that I cannot connect with.  If I change the port to 100 it is solid green and 1000 solid orange.  Then plug the pc into another port and it will get blinking link light to show activity.

What spanning tree mode are they in?  Does this have a log?  What does the log say?  Sounds like they are bad.  Is this still under warranty?

Can you reset the device to factory defaults?

If you did that and still had problems, I'd agree with giltjr:

I have seen this many times.  In our cases this was a hardware problem in the switch.  Just depends on how you want handle it.  Some of these switches we just dont use those ports.  Others we have returned them for repair.  This has never been a config issure.

These switches are generic.  They have logging but nothing helpfull.  I will try rebooting and if all elso fails see if I can get it replaced.  Spanning tree state is disable.  operation mode classic stp.
