Question about NEC USB 2.0 ( ) Laptop PCMCIA CardBus PC Card Adapter (USBP2D20) Serial Adapter

1 Answer

Machine locks up

Hi, Everytime I insert my USB 2.0 PCMCIA card into my laptop the system locks up. It tries to install the drivers then just stops. The only way I can get it to move again is to remove the card, then it restarts. I am using an IBM R40 Thinkpad running Windows XP Pro SP2. I have checked my BIOS and it is the most current version available. Does anyone have any ideas ofw hat I can do about this problem? Thanks.

    J have the same prob using a PCMCIA 4 port USB card. Xp sees it but locks up soon after before asking for Drivers.

    I have installed latest BIOS for my Dell Inspiron 1150.

Install the vendor specifig driver for the PCMCIA. because windows XP sp2 is also able to detect the device and when you push the device online it is detecting and there is some other device which has got same IRQ and that is conflict with this and stop. see any error that is generated in event viwer * run>type "eventvwr" and enter * see the application/system try to detect your error log and see what microsoft says about it. otherwise post the error report Thanks Arun

Usb pcmcia cardbus card will not lock in place


Are you sure? Push it. On some laptops there might be two slots for the card (one above the other). If your system has space for 2 cards, try the other slot.

I get there is not hi speed usb host controller available on your computer when I insert a Pen drive and the transfer rate to the pen drive is pathetic. Please help me


The problem you are decribing is one that many people with older machines experiance.
The USB Host controller in your machine is USB 1/1.1 while the device is an USB 2 device (much faster)

If this is a desktop you should be able to find a PCI card that will support USB 2

If this is laptop there are PCMCIA (cardbus) cards available for this also

I have just bought a second hand compaq nc 4010 i have read that i can make it wireless using a pcmcia wifi card how do i install it as i have no disc drive on the nc4010?thank you


pcmcia is a card slightly smaller than the antique floppy disc that usually fits in a slot on the side of your laptop your model does have this slot, but personally I would go for a usb hsdpa modem as this provides faster broadband internet.
good luck

Booting from CDROM might be the easiest way to have the OS installed. If the BIOS supports booting with USB flash drive, you can use a bootable OS USB flash drive. Making one bootable USB flash drive may be a little complicated if you don't have a CD of the operating system.

Otherwise you have options of those miniSD card or PCMCIA cards with the size of your credit card which can be used as an extension of your input devices or storage devices if you can find those ports on your laptop. PCMCIA cards are developed through time and having quite a bit versions and standards. I suggest you to contact Dell to make sure that laptop support certain types of PCMCIA card.

I checked the sabrent website and didn't find it listed there. If the disk doesn't seem to have drivers for it then I would do one of 2 things

READ ME FIRST BEFORE TAKING ANY ACTION. BY NOT DOING SO, CAN MAKE YOUR SYSTEM NOT BOOT CORRECTLY.


First thing I would do, is look under Device Manager, to see if the PCMCIA slot is not install correctly. The software driver could be corrupted just like Microcrap. Not sure how to. Very Simple. Here's how.

Right click My Computer, scroll down to properties or select My Computer, then press ALT and Enter at same time. Either way same window pops up.
You will be looking for a Tab on the top that says "Hardware". Below that is a button says "Device Manager"
Looking at the list for "PCMCIA" click the plus sign on the left to expand it. Unless you see a yellow triangle next to it, then it's install correctly. To fix it, you can always clcik on it and on the top there's a icon that says "Uninstall" If/When you click it windows will uninstall the hardware only. There's a icon in the same area:"Scan Hardware Devices" Either Click it or restarting the pc, windows will try to install it again. As long as the software drivers are not uninstall, windows will try to install that device again. Most of the time, it will install the hardware without any action form the user. Sometimes you need to tell it where the files are at. If ALL checks out, then check the PCMCIA card and the slot o the pc. The pins could be bents on the inside. Again if all check out fine, try a different PCMCIA card.

Let me know wat happens

How can I connect a wireless adapter to my toshiba portege 660 cdt as there is not a port on it for the usb to fit in to


Hi,

I am assuming that your wireless adapter is USB and that your Toshiba Portege 660 CDT has a PCMCIA slot. If yes then you would need something like a PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card adapter as shown here. The added advantage is that you would have an extra USB port. Just pls make sure that the PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card adapter you will purchase is compatible with your laptop and has drivers appropriate for your Operating System.

Alternately, you can try swapping your USB WiFi for a PCMCIA version similar to this. Again, pls make sure that the PCMCIA Wireless network card you will purchase is compatible with your laptop and has drivers appropriate for your Operating System.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Wireless network setup


Hi,

Based on your post, you currently have a working Netgear WiFi Card installed in your laptop. What you want to do is remove it from the laptop and install the said card to your desktop.

For your desktop to be able to accept the NetGear WFi card which is a PCMCIA Cardbus device, you need to install either:
1. a USB Adapter for PCMCIA as shown here; or
2. a CardBus/PCMCIA to PCI Adapter Card available here.

Either one will work. Of course you need to install the necessary drivers for the NetGear MA701NA in your desktop which is available from the CD installer that came with the NetGear or online here.

Considering the cost of the USB adapter or the PCMCIA to PCI card, you may want consider buying a PCI WiFi card or USB WiFi dongle.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
