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!

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.
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
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.
Hello...maybe you can go to the control panel and use the "add new hardware" function and see if your windows support your screen...than you can use pnp or manual installation....you can select from a list... and in some cases it is better with a "generic" driver than none at all...i use my screen as pnp and it isn't.pnp ..under xp...works ok...don't forget to have your windows cd at hand ..yo may need it...plase tell me how it went...good luck...Ron
There is a bunch of "model" numbers for the IBM netvista PC. You didn't menton yours in your question but after looking at a dozen or so I'll bet you have at least one PCI slot free for a wireless PCI card.
