Question about Gigabyte GA-M61P-S3 Motherboard

1 Answer

No LAN Just bought this board because it has 4 PCI slots. It is out of production so can't be replaced. On-board LAN doesn't work. Ethernet cable lights up the connection both on the board and the router, but when I run the BIOS SMART LAN test it can't find the connection. All I get is a cryptic message "cable length less than 10M." I am afraid the only solution may be to disable it and install either a PCI or USB LAN. Will this work? If I disable the LAN do I also have to disable the 1394? Advice would be most appreciated.

    Thanks. I will try this, but I think the problem is with the on-board LAN itself, rather than drivers. As I wrote above The failed test for the presence of the LAN connection is at the BIOS level before any OS or drivers are installed.

    Rather than fuss around with this, I have ordered a lan card which will use up one of my valuable PCI slots--motherboards no longer come with enough of these. If this doesn't solve the problem, I will have to replace the board.

M3N78-VM LAN PORT& PCI PROBLEM


1) How do you know that PCI slot is not working? Tried another PCI expansion card in it? Perhaps another LAN adapter card?
(Ethernet Card)

A LAN adapter card will go bad before a PCI slot will.

2) PCI expansion slot is bad? No other PCI slot to use?
Then here is a suggestion,

Plug it into any available USB port on the computer.
It is a GigaByte Ethernet solution, also. (10/100/1000)

The Ethernet port of my Asus M4a77td motherboard stopped working. I think it is a hardware problem because when I plug the router cable on the port, the corresponding light on the router does not turn on...


Yeah, the link light on the router should be coming on.
A few simple things to try:
Try a different network cable. Try a different port on the router. Visually inspect the port on the system and router to confirm they are not physically damaged in any way.

My lan driver not work


Go to the following link, select your operating system then download it & install. http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Chipsets&ProductLine=Desktop+Chipsets&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+865+Chipset+Family
After installing, right click on My computer, Hardware, Device manager. Check Any thing in yellow color in Network adapters or in any place. If it is related to network then, re-install Operating system & try. If nothing is in yellow color then the Ethernet port i.e., LAN port is gone bad replace the same & insert new LAN port in other slot i.e., PCI slot & install the driver & check. I hope it will work for you.

Your MoBo has (1) of each PCI Express x1 & and PCI Express x16 slots, and (2) standard PCI slots. There are NO AGP bus slots on this board. You'd want to use buy a PCI Express x16 video card instead of a PCI video card due to the better performance offered by the PCI Express cards.

On board lan & pci slots are not working . on board lan also not showing in device manager.


Was the board recently struck by lightning? I've had several problems where lightning struck the motherboard through the lan ports, while not destroying the board itself, but just the lan port, and usually not showing up in device manager gives it away.

You will have to replace the motherboard if this is the case

Lan card


Use a different PCI slot and reinstall the drivers for your LAN card. If this does not fix the problem there may be a compatibility issue between the network card and some other software (eg. irq conflict etc.), or the LAn card may be slightly faulty and have problems on some motherboard.
In this case you can try troubleshooting the problem.
If you cannot find out the problem at a glance, checking in device properties, you may be forced to reinstall Windows. In this case I suggest to just replace the part. The Ethernet (LAN) pci card is quite an inexpensive part, and you can still use this one on a different computer.
