IBM Netvista PCI/PNP Slot 3 Error

Hello, I was told that my NIC card was bad in my IBM Netvista (runs XP) so I went out and bought a new one to install. I shut down, installed the new NIC card (I left the old one in since it didn't look like I'd be able to remove it). When I turned on the PC I got 'Resource Conflict' errors saying 'PCI in slot 3, PCI serial bus controller in slot 3'...then it would say no boot filename received and no OS found. I can't get past the Boot Agent since it keeps failing. I tried shutting down and removing the new NIC card and when I reboot I still get the same errors. Any idea what could be causing this and how I can fix it? Thanks!

    I have the same issue when I insert any of PCI cards, for example, BEHOLDER TV tuner or any of Network NIC cards. I spent plenty of time searching in google and lenovo pages for some explanation and manuals how to configure manualy IRQ in IBM NetVista, but gues what?, nothing is about this BRAND at all. Please help if u have some work arround this conflict.

Just installed xp for a friend on an old ibm netvista 6794 NZU pc. Went to ibm website but can not find the motherboard or chipset drivers to allow this pc to acess the internet. Can anyone help please. ...


It's a big pain when you dont have the right driver. but try this:

1. download and install the Windows Service Pack 3 (XP SP 3) in the computer and check if it works.

and how are you trying to connect to the internet? you might just want to put in an extra PCI network card, if you want to use the broadband or if you need the usb ports to work, try a PCI USB card instead.

either ways, make sure you have installed SP3 in that computer.

cheers!

What kind of mobo does this Toshiba V3100 desktop machine have? And what kind of NIC do I need? Besides the origanal RJ 11 NIC that came w/it?


Hello,

Here is a pdf file showing the specs of your computer:

http://www.bjassociates.com/toshiba_v3100.pdf

The MB is a micro ATX board with 3 PCI expansion slots. The one slot appears to have had a NIC card to which you refer. You would have to obtain a PCI Ethernet card (NIC).

Thanks for using Fixya.

First off I would troubleshoot the NIC onboard, but if it is not working then you should have an available PCI slot to install a new NIC. However you will also have to disable the onboard NIC in the BIOS.

If you are using windows

Click --Start --run-- type in cmd and hit <enter> (this will bring up the dos box)

then type ipconfig /all

It should come back and show:
Connetion-specific DNS Suffix : xxxxx.xxxx.com
Description: Brand and type of NIC
Physical Address : xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx
DHCP Enabled: yes or no
AutoConfiguration Enabled: yes or no
IP Address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Subnet mask: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Lease Obtained: date when it connected
Lease Expires: date when connection expires
Default Gateway: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
DHCP Servers: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
DNS Servers: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

If all this is showing correct then try typing ping 127.0.0.1 this will be the NIC itself and it should reply back. If not then do the following.

If it does not show up then check device manager and see if the NIC is disabled.
if it is disabled try reenabling it.
if it is not unistall the device and then reboot the PC it should find the NIC and install it.
if all this fails then replace the NIC

USB 2 PCI card installation on IBM NetVista with MS Vista


Lucy,

USB 2.0 cards require 2 IRQs.
  • 1 IRQ supports USB 1.1
  • and the other the Enhanced (USB 2.0) controller.
Installing the USB 2.0 card in a slot that does NOT share an IRQ or shares an IRQ with onboard USB produces the best result. Consult your motherboard manual or online guide to determine which PCI slot is best for you.

You should also try disabling the on board USB support from BIOS setup.

Thanks
Iqbal

2 ethernet cards can't work together


If in your network you are connecting computers directly to a PC thru multiple nics and not a router or hub leaving one as server and the others as clients and that server is NT 4,0

NT 4,0 can not auto configure the cat5 cable and would need at least 1 cable to be a cross-over and not a patch.
