    Hey swker98,
    I know you're not an English major,
    no light up... remove the drivers and reboot. If still no light up, scrap the NIC and buy another

    I am disabled too, But I was an English major. I have Cerebral Palsy. Replace the NIC. They are cheap now. I use 2 finger typing and I have a good keyboard

    I've had probably 7 8139s die on me. They are extremely cheap both in cost and quality, replace the NIC its dead.

    Make sure its seated properly first, and I guess you could try another PCI slot, but those 8139s die so often I imagine its just dead.

    Good going swker98,
    now I see where I was confused about disability... Get that new keyboard! I use one from Wal-Mart, only $12. It works fine :)

    Did you restart or start from cold? I have a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz PCI sound card that does this from a cold start. Restarts don't affect it.

    Note: a cold start is equal to turning the computer off, then back on
