Ethernet Ports stopped working

Hi,

I have a Lenovo T60 laptop, and the Ethernet ports have stopped working. I have reinstalled and updated the drivers, upgraded the BIOS, and wiped the machine and reloaded Windows XP on it. It isn't a hardware problem, and there is nothing wrong with the network or ethernet cables. Wireless still works.
Any ideas?

Thanks.

Lenovo WinXP - Ethernet port issue


Hi. Try to check the steps as give below.
  1. Check the ethernet port with other spare wire if you have to check if it is a wire problem or if it is itself your ethernet port.
  2. Try to connect your ethernet port directly to the router to make sure ethernet port is working and there is no connectivity issue with the switch.
  3. Try to check the System BIOS settings and see if it is not disabled from there.
  4. Lastly download any free Live OS of Linux and boot your computer using it. See if the ethernet card is working or not.
Steps from 1-3 is for checking physical connectivity of the ethernet port and the last step is for checking OS issue. If network card do not work with Live OS as well, you can directly come to conclusion that its ethernet card that is not working properly and you need to get is repaired.
Cheers!

My lenovo t60 screen goes black 15 seconds after


Hi, try to boot into safemode, turn your system on then keep on tapping F8 to get the windows advance Menu screen, select safemode.

In the safemode windows go to Control panel and check your power options, you will see what time frame your system has for the LCD when turning off.

If this does not fix the issue, try booting into safemode with networking for you to be able to go online in safemode try updating your BIOS from your Manufacturers Website, Updating your bios may fix the issue.
