How do I stop an HP DX2400 computer from causing my Cisco Switches to disable

Check the Event Viewer.

What about network collision between the two? Correct VLAN on the port? Are the switch ports set to auto detect? If not what is the speed? 100 Full? Sync the HP NICs.

Does the HP have any special software that dictates a certain throughput?

Unplugged power to move now ethernet wont work


If the card from the other pc fits the slot, then it should work fine. Look at the card before you install it in the 1330n and note the model number in case you have to download a driver for it. You can also go to and search for the network card driver for the m7650n. Let me know if you still have problems with it.

Emachine t3626 internet port can it be replaced


The Ethernet port on your eMachines is part of the motherboard.
It is attached directly to the motherboard.

The eMachines T3626 Desktop PC, is supposed to use an
ECS MCP61-P (AM2) motherboard. (Cannot verify)
(Elitegroup Computer Systems. (AM2) refers to the processor socket )

(Also scroll down for a larger photo of the motherboard )

The Ethernet port is in the group signified by the letter A, on the left.
The group signified by the letter A, is in the I/O area.

Input/Output area. This is where Input, and Output devices are attached, TO the motherboard. (Using the motherboard's chipset)

Now look down the motherboard, to the two long white slots.
These are PCI slots. Signified by the letter I ( i )
If one of these slots is not being used, plug in an Ethernet Card, that is PCI.

If both of these PCI slots are being used, use the small white slot above them, signified by the letter H.

This is a PCI-Express x1 slot. If it is available, use it.
Use an Ethernet Card designed to fit, in a PCI-Express x1 slot.


PCI Ethernet Adapter Card,

PCI-Express x1 Ethernet Adapter Card,

[ Note*
The PCI-Express x16 slot that you have, (Orange in color, above the white PCI-Express x1 slot), is for a graphics card.

It is ONLY for a graphics card.
The PCI-Express x1 slot is NOT used for a graphics card ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
(If you would like the proper procedure for installing a Ethernet Adapter Card, in your eMachines T3626, also state in a Comment)

Ethernet port not functioning after lifghtening strike

Ethernet port not working after a lightning strike? Then I suggest obtaining an inexpensive Ethernet adapter card, and installing it.

One example of an Ethernet adapter card, (Ethernet Card, Networking Card - Same/same),

The above Ethernet adapter card is a PCI style of adapter card. It plugs into any available PCI expansion slot on the Pavilion a620n's motherboard.

This is an illustration and photo of the Pavilion a620n motherboard from HP Support,

Scrolling to the middle of the page shows first the illustration, then the photo.
In the motherboard photo the three white long expansion slots on the bottom of the motherboard, are the PCI slots.

On this page is information on how to open the computer case, and replace, or install an Ethernet Card,

How to replace ethernet card on hp pavilion a706n, it looks like it is built in to the motherboard, can I just buy a replacement and put in one of the empty slots??

It is buillt in however if you have a spare PCI slot on the motherboard you could fit another ethernet card which would override the built in one.

Questions about replacing ethernet card on my Dell desktop

Any ethernet card will work fine. Just be sure it's the fit's the correct slot. You probably have a "white" slot which is a pci slot. If it's a longer "black" slot then it's isa. More than likely it came from a pci slot. Before you buy one, confirm the type of slot. In additon, before installing it go to control panel and system settings, hardware, device manager and remove the old one by right clicking it and select delete or remove. Shut down the computer follow instructions for new card.
Probably will have to install the drivers first then shut down and install the new card. Good Luck.
