After you install and configure the Intel PCI EtherExpress PRO/100 network interface card (NIC) under Windows NT, Windows for Workgroups, or any other operating system, and restart your Compaq DeskPro or Prolinea PCI-bus based computer, the power-on-self-test (POST) fails and video is not available.


To work around this problem, use another supported NIC. For Windows NT, refer to the Windows NT Hardware Compatibility List (HCL). For more information, contact Intel Technical Support at (503) 696-8080.
