  1. Ok someone gave me their computer to look at cause they thought i knew alot :p well the problem he was having was that a friend of his put in a pci ethernet adapter and when he plugged in his dsl he wasn't getting an internet connect. When i looked on it i saw that it was receiving limited or connectivity so i just told him to ask his friend for the driver cd for the pci card cause he told me all hi s friend did was to put in the card.
    Before i gave it back to him i showed him the message. Then he took home the computer. Today he brought it back telling me that when he turns it on the monitor doesn't turn on, he doesnt have an internal speaker so i cannot tell if the system is going through post or not, most i can say is that i see the busy indicator led blinking. Could you tell me of ways to solve the problem. Thank you. I am currently trying to reset the bios completely by leaving out the battery for awhile.

    I would say check the power supply first.
    Especially if it is not POSTing.
