Re: Network card light no blinking and no internet
From he what you describe it seems that there is more hardware problem with
the computer than just the LAN card.
However you can try to take out the two LAN cards, if there is Onboard card
switch it Off in the BIOS. Boot the computer with out any LAN card, look at
the Device Manger and clean any residual LAN related installation (if any).
Switch off the computer insert only one of the new cards, reboot and install
