I have the exact same problem at our company, we have a couple of 100 2530p out and only a handfull of them has weird-acting NICs. The nic stops working and sometimes itll start again after a few reboots on its own, otherwise we have replaced the drivers with new ones from intel or down/upgraded the bios version to get it to work again. This fixes most of the problems however some of our computers still gets the same problem later on. New drivers may fix it, but when the NIC isnt working PXE-boot isnt working aswell, and no drivers have any effect there.
When we send the computers to HP they just say "its working" and they send them back.
