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!

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
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.
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.
