Hi

The story so far...

I buy a network card (Netgear FA311), plug it in, turn on.

Windows XP didn't quite recognise it (I thought it would be simple). It said it had found a half duplex audio something or other. Anyway this problem has become secondary because upon trying the network card in another port, the computers Power On Self Test makes a noise as follows:

one long beep, two short beeps. (What does this normally signify)

This is accompanied by the monitor no longer receiving a signal.

I have tried removing all PCI cards and the AGP graphics card to see if my normal happy one long beep would come back but it didn't.

Please help, I have broadband internet arriving on the 27th March and If my computer is not working by then, I will have to delay it.

Thanks in Advance

Graham

Hello grahamutton and welcome to Tech Support Forums

What kind of motherboard do you have?

According to Award bios beeps this is a video error. Really..:D

Try putting everything back the way it originally was before you installed the NIC.
Then clear the cmos, There should be a jumper on the motherboard that will allow you to do this. Take a look at your manual. Do this after unplugging the system.
Then try it.

I have looked in the manual and it has a diagram pointing to the jumper, but this diagram does not resemble my motherboard.

Must be one of those manuals that try to cover multiple boards from the same family??

anyway,lets assume I find the actual correct jumper, what then...

Thanks

Just move the jumper over onto the next pin.
If it is on 1&2 move it to 2&3 you get the idea.
Leave it on there for about 10 seconds, Then move it back and try it.
Good Luck..;)

Also make sure the video card is seated all the way into the slot.

Cool I went searching for an FIC board as that is where the last set of numbers lead me.

Now we have a clue.

I shall return...:D

Go here for your manual.

The jumper is on the top right hand corner of the motherboard as it sits in your case.

It is marked JCMOS1 this may not be the solution but it's a start..;)

If you can't find the jumper, if all else fails, try removing the battery for about 10 seconds. It produces the same result.
