Hmmm ... I got  feeling you have a patch cable issue.   Can you please do a TDR?

Here's are the command combinations:

1.  Command:  test cable tdr interface ;

2.  Wait for about 5 to 7 seconds;

3.  Command:  sh cable tdr interface ;

4.  Please post the output

I'm suspecting your PC has a GigabitEthernet NIC card and Pair "D" could be either "short" or "open" status.
