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.

Anybody know how to enable the AGP slot on an IBM NetVista 8305? Thanks.


1.
Shut down your computer and reboot to the BIOS. Reach the BIOS by pressing the Access IBM button on your keyboard or by pressing the F11 key.
2.
Use the arrow keys to scroll though the options to locate the video VGA graphic chip set. Follow the onscreen instructions to save the new BIOS settings.
3.
Turn off the machine after the BIOS settings have been saved. Unplug the power cord from the electrical socket.
4.
Open the side access panel of the Net Vista. On some models the panel will slide off; on others you may have to loosen the two thumbscrews holding it in place. If you have a desktop configuration instead of a tower, slide the top cover off the machine.
5.
Remove the existing AGP graphics card from the machine. You may need to use a screwdriver to remove the screw holding the card in place.
6.
Locate the proper slot for the new card. The new card may use the same AGP slot or use a PCI slot. If necessary, remove the dust cover for the selected slot with a screwdriver.
7.
Slide the new card into the slot. Screw the holding screw into place if the card requires one.
8.
Plug your monitor into the connection on the card. Plug the machine into the power source and turn the Net Vista on. Follow the onscreen instructions for installing the proper drivers if needed by your operating system. Replace the side panel when everything is working properly

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

We bought a used IBM NetVista and have a monitor problem


The video card is the most possible causing error like this. The cables are either connected or not.

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.

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.

PC Card


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.

Can't upgrade the USB ports to Version 2.0


Hi cogilbert,
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.
