Re: Error code 10 Device cannot restart

I faced the same problem. In Windows XP it was installed successfully. In Windows 2000, I got the same error. However, I do believe that the problem is not the OS, but the PCI bus. The Windows 2000 system,is quite old, so it may be PCI 2.1 and not PCI 2.2 as required.

Device cannot start code 10

I have seen that sometime (especially after a reinstall) the wrong drivers get installed.
  • Firstly i suggest going to: and finding the make and model of your network adaptor and update it using the latest driver from that website
  • Or you can try and see if your computer manufacturer, be it DELL, Toshiba etc.. has drivers available for your machine as well and get it from their site.
Try each solution and if it asked you to restart once you install the new drivers make sure you do. Any problems let me know.

Code 10

If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message: This device cannot start. (Code 10)Recommended resolutions

Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

Update the driver

In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.

Error 10 Am trying to install on refurb desktop Have installed and uninstalled and installed again

Error code 10 in device manager means that the device cannot start. This is due to either the drivers are not updated, or the drivers are not recognized by the Device Manager.

Try the following:
- Uninstall and then reinstall the drivers.
- Make sure you have the updated drivers and the drivers are compatible with the operating system of the computer.
- Try to install the adapter to another computer, just to isolate the issue if this is a problem with the drivers or if it is a compatibility issue with the PC.

Please note: WUSB54GSC v1 drivers can also work with Win 7 using the Win Vista drivers.

"WPC54G is not installed"

Those install programs that Linksys uses are terrible. This happens all the time.

You probably can't use the linksys program to install the software on a Windows 2000 machine you should be able to install just the driver you need. I have never used wireless networking on a Win 2000 computer before. Win XP has sotware already built into the operating systems to deal with wireless networking.

Uninstall all Linksys wireless networking software. Restart you computer with the wirless network card install and let Windows search for the correct drivers on the CD.

Linksys wireless g notebook adapter

This is an issue that is commonly happeniong with this model, due to the fact that the main chipset was made from a diff manufacturer as compared to other linksys products. Here is what i would suggst you do:

1. Right click on my computer icon>select properties>Hardware>Device manager

2. The adaptor in question will def either turn up with a yellow question mark or a yellow circled black exclamation mark. Depending on the error code (erorr code 10 or 28, usually these 2 occur), double click the icon and select update driver.

3. When the computer asks if it should search for the necessary file (on win XP), click on the option whereby it allows you to install the driver youself.

4. Once that is done, if you have the driver (obtainable from on your PC, just point the tool to the .inf (there should be 3, including autoplay.inf, which you dont need for the driver installation) file in the folder and select both drivers.

5. restart computer.

It should be working fine now. Please do not hesistate to reach me for alternative solutions if this does not work out. Thanks.

"WPC54G is not installed"

Hai rob if ur device manager says error code 10then it seems the drivers are not installed properly for the adapter, try to update drivers, go to device manager, right clich adapter and click update driver and try to update driver, in some case ur pc may require win 2000 cd to.. check for the instructions while installing it , that would surely fix your problem..
