So, I picked up a Supermicro X7DWE dual socket 771 and a couple of quad core Xeon processors real cheap a few months back to run a 8 core server machine. Was working great as a router and file server until recently. The power went out during Hurricane Sandy, machine was plugged into a surge protector, no battery back up. I left it off for a week. Went to reboot it up yesterday and it will not find any NIC's. Here is whats up: -Running Linux Mint 13 Maya Mate I messed with it for a bit and said what the heck I'll just reinstall the OS. -During reinstallation it could not detect the onboard NIC's or any in the PCI Slot (both a gigabit fiber card and a generic 3com 10/100 card). So, I booted to Knoppix. No detection. I booted to a different flavor of linux (crunch bang), nothing there either. -Pulled RAM and reset BIOS. Checked power cables, everything is snug there... STILL CANT FIGURE IT OUT! Bottom line: Everything about this computer runs great, except I can't get a NIC to work to save my life right now! Help please!
