In the usual way when dealing with this card, it now seems to be
working. What did I do? Well I hotglued a fan to it and put it back
in...... Now the card couldn't have been too hot because in trying to
get it going I had been turning the computer on and off all the time,
so the card was cool. But go figure.
I did however see the greatest alert I ever seen from Windows XP.
Having been changing PCI slots when I tried to assign the correct IP
address to the card I got, " That IP address has been allocated to
another network card, which is not working because it doesn't seem to
be installed. Should you use this address it will conflict with the
assigned network card should it be installed" or words to that effect.
Whatever happened to plug and play?????
Still I have to put the sides back on the computer which is no doubt
going to be another reason for this card not to work.......
