okay, i ruined a good running machine. i believe i messed up a config file or maybe corrupted the files. i was in the process or updating infor using ispconfig. then i restarted my computer. when i start it up during the time it brings the nic card up it hangs longer than usual. and when it usually connects to the time server it fails. temporary failure in name resolution. and it also disables irq 11. is that the nic card? i forget all the irqs. Thanks to any who help!
