Hi,

My pc couldn,t load windows XP Home when I installed external n/w card. The error message stated are "Mac Client Address xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx", where the "xxx" is a numbers. Currently I have a built-In n/w card in my motherboard, but it will hang when I connect to internet throught direct-connection, wherease the built-In n/w card works fine in a Lan network environment. My pc now is tested in a Lan network environment. Could anyone please tell me what was wrong and the solution for it? Thank you in advance..

Eventhough It is a information message, but It stay there, no matter what button I click. And the information message didn't appear when I connect into the buit-In n/w card. Is it a hardware problem or a software problem? Or could it be a motherboard can't support 2 n/w card?

It's not very complete. All we know is some informational message and very little else.

When I plug the network cable into my n/w card and I turn on the monitor, the computer display the message stated "Client Mac Address xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx" in the dos mode in the middle of loading XP. So, my computer did not get the chance to completely load XP, and it stay at the message there?

XP wouldn't do that.

Since XP doesn't do that we need to know how you built this machine. I can only guess you installed some old drivers. But let's have you tell a story. At the very least read the forum Note (those words in red) and tell at least that much.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
