My gateway 166 got its new 10 gig drive and was running good. I installed a ethernet card and it didnt plug and play. Now all my PCI slots appear dead. My modem, ethernet, etc quit. Although my monitors card still works.

I was interrupted and a neighbor was alone with my computer apart for maybe 5 minutes. Phone call came in. I dont know if its something he did, me or just random chance.

The computer doesnt load / see the PCI slt stuff. Any ideas?

Pull all of the PCI cards out and see if it boots. If it does, start putting cards back in until it starts giving you trouble. Also try different slots with each card.
