Having problems with your Dell Dimension 1100 PC Desktop ?

NIC too close to USB port?

\015 I have a Dell Dimension 1100 with an onboard Intel Pro/100 VE network card. It stopped working after I plugged a Lexmark Z1300 printer into the USB port next to the ethernet port. I've upgraded the Intel driver, and ran diagnostics; the EEPROM, Control Registers, Interrupt, PHY Loopback, and MAC Loopback tests passed, but the Link test failed. \015\012\015\012Using another computer, I can use wireless to connect to the modem and get on the internet, but can't connect to the modem's physical ports, either (this second computer's NIC is known good and works elsewhere). So I assumed the modem's ports were bad and got a new modem (exact same model). Still getting the message "network cable unplugged" for the Local Area Connection, and the Link test fails in the NIC diagnostics.\015\012\015\012Is this NIC/USB problem common? Can it be fixed or does the motherboard need to be replaced?\015

My 160GB Crossfire is not recognised when connected to any of the USB ports. It used to be, but then I've had some other PC issues recently that meant a forced closure of the PC and I'm concerned that this has effected the external drive. One question is what the correct procedure for starting, closing my external drive....

When starting the external drive there is not much more than just plugging it in to a USB port and turning it on. The computer should recognize it ( showing something like the window shown here http://attachments.techguy.org/attachments/66120d1129787 ... PC Desktops
