We'll, looks like I finally ran into something that has me stymied. Time for the tech experts.

Got a friends IBM NetVista machine that he bought from a church that upgraded. They apparently reinstalled the OS before hand because I had to set it up when I first turned it on. It's a 1.8GHz P4, 512Mb RAM. It's got an Intel Pro/100 VE Desktop Network card installed. However, it's not working.

When I first tried it, it had an error code of "1". Said it had no driver. I went and got it (E100BNT5.sys) and then pointed the install to it. That got me half-way through. Then it started griping about ProUnstl could not be found. Went and got that and then the install ran all the way through. Now I get an error message of "10". Says that means the card cannot start.

I have tried uninstalling it then reinstalling it but that didn't work (did it twice) and now I've run out of ideas.

Anybody know what I might be doing wrong (or is it maybe a bad card)?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry. Thought I had the OS in there.

It's Windows 2000 Pro and the info on the bottom of the machine says:


Machine Type: 6790
Model: 2DU


I'll check out the link sometime this afternoon.

Thanks again.
