    sb61g2 v4 nic card dead?



    i just got a sb61g2v4 and it seems that the nic card on motherboard is not working , it claims that the network cable is unplugged , has anyone else had this issue , id like to free up my pci slot again that is currently used as a nic .

    has anyone got any advice to try ,

    steps i have taken ,
    updated bios and all drivers ,
    updated windows xp to current state ,
    used multimeter to test pins , all pins show no current ,
    used 3 different networks (hard wired )
    used 5 different cables , rj45 cat5 and cat6
    so i got fed up at this point and installed pci nic
    but still wondering how to bring it back to life

    nics are usually the first thing to die on a system. the reason why they die so quick is that they are put to some dodgy voltages

    If its physically broken the only way is to buy another NIC or replace your board.

    looks like the on-board nic is broken..if you want to free up the space then I think you need to invest in either a replacement motherboard (will be expensive) or get a USB network card......
