It the NIC circuitry is on the motherboard. You would have to be an expert with a soldering machine to remove the IC and replace it. I would purchase a $20. +/- NIC adapter to put in your PCI slot . And disable the on-board NIC in the CMOS by hitting F2 on boot up and go to the setup page.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Dell gx270 not communicating with monitor. self test feature check is floating on monitor


This is a self check for the monitor. This self test means that the monitor is not getting a signal from your computer. Have you installed any video cards in this computer?

If its onboard video meaning you never installed a video card then your video card is bad. Try purchasing a video card and installing it in the computer and your problem should be fixed. I hope this helps you. Any other questions feel free to ask thanks.

Orange light on Dell GX270 power button


A solid orange light, usually indicates an internal power problem but just in case try reseating the memory. Also its become a habit on a GX270 to check the capacitors to make sure they aren't bulging.
