Laptop PCMCIA problems


I recently installed Windows XP pro on my partner’s laptop (it was previously running xp home). Prior to the reinstall, it was using a belkin wireless pcmcia card, but since the reinstall I cannot get the system to detect the card for love nor money.

I know the card works as I have tried it in another laptop.

When I insert the card into the slot, the machine beeps three times, but neither the lights on the card, or the hardware detection wizard start.
Any help appreciated - it’ll save my relationship!



is the cardbus controller properly installed? Check device manager. Sometimes, additional drivers from the notebook manufacturer are needed.
Also, make sure the Cardbus slot is basically working, maybe there is another card you can try?
