[QUOTE=Whappo;2471425]What shows up in the bios? What operating system are you using? I don’t know the specs of your laptop but are you trying 16 or 32 bit pcmcia cards? I have had some problems with IRQ conflicts when using pcmcia, especially when under XP (you might want to check what’s being used). Sometimes to test I’ll use a linux distro like Puppy. Can your laptop boot from CD?[/QUOTE]
Same cards work fine in another Presario of same type; and can boot from Bios.
Situation has changed some; see my comment to eric93se reply.
