Removed e1000 and inserted 3com NIC, this does the same thing, suggesting a 
Dell motherboard/bios issue and not a NIC issue as the cards are different

You might try running memtest86 on the system to see if there's a memory issue.
 That's usually one of the primary causes of a sig11.

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received the feedback we
requested, we will assume the problem was not reproduceable or has been fixed in
a later update for this product.  If you have further details, feel free to
reopen the report with the additional details attached.
