PC unable to get DHCP IP

We have a very old PC Dell Dimension 3000 with Intel Pro/100 VE, fresh reinstall of Win XP 32bit SP3, Microsoft Security Essentials.

It is unable to get a DHCP IP.
- configure static IP - ok can access network
- tested cable and LAN port on two other PC - OK both can get DHCP IP
- turn PC Firewall off and on - same, cannot access network
- downloaded latest driver from Intel website - same, cannot access network

Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi,

Temporarily resolved.

Yes DHCP services is running on the PC and server. IP is not reserved for MAC ID or insufficient IP in pool etc.  The PC will get an IP address, after some time-  30mins?

Maybe it is a switch issue or maybe it is the PC issue (LAN NIC card too old - obsolete / incompatible microcode). Anyway.


Thanks.

Cheers
