Question unable to bring up any interface

I have Linux 7.1 setup on a Dell and am unable to bring up any interfaces. Both the lo and eth0 fail upon boot up and I get a insmod error possibly due to bad irq or IO setting.
If I disable eth0 upon boot, then lo works fine, but offcourse I get the "delaying initialization" upon boot for eth0
help
thanks

Hi alam,

What type of ethernet card have you got installed?
Also what error messages are being displayed when you attempt to bring up lo and eth0?
