When you swapped the PC to the a other port did you still get excessive broadcasts on the old port 9 or on the new port?

If it gave you errors on the new port it's pc related if the problem stayed on port 9 wat was connected to that port at time.

It could be malware or a faulty Nic on that computer or it could be the switch that has a faulty port.

Sounds like you have more than one switch have you tried swoping out that faulty switch with another one to see if you still get the same broadcasts on port 9?

When you said you tested the cable did that include end to end (the room's jack, the wiring to the closet and the patch panel) or just the patch cords?

Just want to make sure I understand what you said above.

you changed the PC to switch-port 20 and the problem moved to port 20 or stayed on port 9?

If the problem moved the problem is with the NIC on that PC.

If it stayed on Port 9 the problem is with that port/switch.

Remember all HP switches carry a lifetime customer warranty.
