Dell Broadcom 57xx NIC won't connect at gigabit speed.

I have multiple Broadcom NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet cards in Dell Precision T1500s connected to a new  HP ProCurve Switch that will not connect at Gigabit speed.  Broadcom driver is 15.6.0.10  11/05/13.  OS is Windows 7 Pro 64x.  Intel chipset drivers are up to date.  Please help!
Thanks,
Andreas

Is the Procurve switch managed? If so, check that its ports are set correctly.  If it was formerly connected to a 10/100 LAN then it may have been configured manually to connect at 100Mbps. Are the NICs set to auto negotiation of link speed and duplex?

I did not look at the switch close enough.  My mistake.  48 100 mbs ports and 2 gb ports.  I am an idiot...
