Motherboard LAN problem
Man, when it rains it pours....I've been relatively problem free for months now and then all of a sudden my folding rig mobo dies on me and now I have a problem with the wifes comp. The LAN has radomly kicked out. We were using it last night for some LAN dota, no problems and then this morning I came in and it was at the select your boot options screen, safe, last best config, etc...it wouldn't boot under normal mode, would kick out at XP loading but then worked fine after using last best known configuration. Now it boots into XP, takes a while, but then there is no networking, says the cable is unplugged. I swapped cables, uninstalled networking drivers and still no change. I've noticed that when I plug in the cable there is no green light that comes on at the back of the mobo and am wondering now if I've lost another mobo. Could it be XP? Linked to the original problem that just wouldn't let me boot into the OS?
What do you guys think?
