Question about Evga GeForce GTS 250,, PCI Express Video Card
I'm using a P5N-E SLI Motherboard, ever since I installed my EVGA GTS 250 graphics card my nForce ethernet controller hasn't worked. I finally got the hardware conflicts to stop in device manager between my PCI devices. I double checked my power supply and made sure the proper lead was attached to the graphics card. I've reformatted my computer and updated bios as well. Device Manager says both the graphics card and the ethernet controller are working properly. However, I tested the ethernet cord in my laptop and it was able to establish a connection immediately. When I plug it back into my computer the ethernet jack has a yellow and orange light and will give me the message ''limited or no connectivity''. I don't have another graphics card to see if it's the problem. I've also updated to the latest drivers.
Had a similar problem with P5ne-sli motherboard, Intel Q6600 cpu, Nvidia GTS 8800 video card. One day the ethernet just stopped working, but it was working... It would connect to my network but would see "limited or no connectivity" in the taskbar. Went into BIOS and looked at the signals and for some reason only 4 of the 8 signals were getting a reading. Figured a power spike had fried my onboasrd ethenet card. Switched to an old PCI ethernet card... after two years I was doing a fresh install, of XP and for shits and giggles I just plugged the ethernet cord into the onboard with the PCI ethernet card removed. When windows went to validate it detected and installed my onboard ethernet...validated then proceeded to update windows. Over a year later it still works.
Never bothered to update BIOS until last month and that was only to fix the long boot time with ATI 5770 video card.
Willing to bet that resetting your BIOS will fix the problem for you. Just unplug computer, remove battery, attempt power up to clear any juice still in the system. Replace battery and boot up computer...
Also removed a DIMM that went bad around the same time. May have been a factor so try testing your RAM.
