catalyst 3524 and nic problems

Hi, i've one catalyst 3524, i'm having problems connecting some nic's,

when i connect one Netelligent 10/100 tx to the switch forcing 100/full duplex in both sides i get time outs and the link keep going up/down, in auto i have no problems but i get a 10 mbps connection, i already switch the cables,

Any suggestions?
