May someone please advise me how can i verrify the integrity of the PCI slots?
I i have installed a NIC wich did not worked, then i tried it on another workstation and worked fine.
I've reinstalled the OS(win xp pro sp2), still same issue.
the network look's connected but no packets are send/receiving!!!
I am using static network settings(ip, gateway, dns, workgroup).
If i use the integrated NIC with same settings the connection works!
Note: on different PC the same NIC worked!
I also tried another network card from another PC... same issue!
I believe that the PCI slot's are f***ed...
Is there any utility that may test their functionality???
What symptoms does PCI failure present?!
What else can i try?

Many thanks!!!
