Need help with Procurve Switch

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I just implemented a new HP ProCurve switch. The web interface is pointing out some errors:

Too Many Undersized/Giant Packets on port B10
Excessive CRC/Alignment Errors on port B10

High Collision or Drop Rate on port B1
Excessive CRC/Alignment Errors on port B1

Since these errors started I have replaced the computers on ports B1 and B10 and yesterday I scanned the network cables from tip to tip with real good Fluke cable scanner. The cables certified no problem. The errors persist.

Can anyone enlighten me on other possible causes for these errors? It is nice to see the switch find errors like this but correcting them seems to be a whole different ballgame.
