I would try flashing the BIOS. Here is a link to download it.

In the BIOS try disabling the Network chip.  See if it works like that.

You won't be able to connect it to any network if it does work but will give you an idea if the machine does work.

Agree with dbrunton above.  Disable the LAN controller and proceed from there.

In some older motherboards, PCI device IRQ and DMA was assigned by slot number, not dynamically.  This causes either a POST or bootstrap "resource conflict" error when another device wants to default to that IRQ or DMA channel.

If disabling the LAN helps, next step is to find the conflict.  See what is installed in the PCI slots and pull those cards one at a time.  If an offending card is located, try it in a different PCI slot.  This may alleviate the problem.  However, it may also cause a different problem by introducing a different resource conflict.  Occasionally it is necessary to do complex shuffling to find a configuration that works without conflict, and sometimes it is not possible.
