    Try it with one card first...

    after the OS install (and updates) add the second card...I seem to remember this as an issue with 2 NICs... 2000 server.....during an install.


    or you have a cable\connectivity issue

    When you say, "reinstalled OS", did you do a fresh install, or just rerun setup?

    Initially I was going to say, make sure the DHCP service was running on the client, but after the rest of the ts you've done I doubt its that. Still worth a look though.

    Actually, Morgan, I've tried it with both cards alone (I suspected too that it could be a problem with both running simultaneously), and then with a third card by itself.

    zENGER, The setup was a Windows repair installation. I didn't want to wipe the drive with a fresh install.

    However, if you'll notice from my other thread, I'm getting "memory cannot be written" errors during the repair. I believe it's occuring when COM components are being installed. I've tried it with three different memory sticks, and it still persists.

    Did you try HTRegz winsock fix

    I had a machine where this was the issue...and a repair did not work!!!

    Caused by malware and antispyware removal

    The networking was so fu$%ed up...it was unrepairable

    More Info

    http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=Winsock+fix&meta=

    Try the fix or a format reinstall

    Probably fix your memory read errors too

    I think it may be all tied together

    If you're ready to fdisk and re install, try this first

    Go to Run > regedit > and delete the following

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2

    Restart the computer
    Go to Network Connections
    Right click and select Properties
    Click on the Install button
    Select Protocol
    Click on the Add button
    Click on the Have Disk button
    Go to the \Windows\inf directory
    Select anything there and click Open
    Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
    Click on the OK button
    Check to see if your network adapter obtained a new IP lease and if not...
    Reboot

    WinsockFix didn't fix the problem unfortunatley.

    \Windows\inf
    Where is this located? Either I'm blind (likely) or I don't have a folder by this name in plain view...

    Not sure why, but is your LSP stack OK?

    I have certainly encountered it as a problem with internet connections.

    It's a system folder, you need to select show system files and folders under the tools - folder options- view tab - In explorer

    Hey Nihil,

    The LSPFix program didn't discover any problems.


    Dinowuff,

    Tried your trick as recommended, but no luck.


    Now is this just wierd as heck or what? I'm about to move the HDD over to another box and see what happens booting up from that one.

    You know I was on a machine last night...receiving read memory errors....

    And I noticed the machine was running extremely low disk space on the system partition...

    >by the way>User is a computer *spurt*...machine has 3 partitions...with everything possible residing on C:\

    Could be the part of the problem??? lack of disk space

    You know how windows loves memory...needs memory...and really starts to actup when it cant get any....it appears you have many issues on this box

    As for moving to another box...you are slaving in the hard drive...cause if the board and other hardware are not the same...it wont boot! as a boot drive.


    Slave it in..remove the data...and format reinstall from scratch....should solve your issues...
